Yeah, theres got to be more to the story. Either Mitch is working on some kind of acquisition or it has something to do with his past drug problems coming up again.

Either way, he was one trick pony with a very inconsistent at best trick.

i don't about Shawne having another problem. This move to me and by all reports is about the Lakers trying to save a little more money.

It tough news especially because many players on the team really liked him and he was never a problem for our team chemistry

Best of Luck Shawne, thank you for playing hard even though consistency was an issue at time with your shot making

inconsistent shooting but his rebounding defense and corner 3's were pretty helpful. Kelly can shoot better esp the 3 but other than that Shawne was better and more athletic imo but Kelly has more upside i guess and is cheaper. out of Kelly, X, and Shawne they waived the right guy

I wonder who will take that roster spot

Magic Johnson : "Put me with Kareem, James Worthy, Cooper and Byron Scott, and we'd dominate your Bulls team"

Was not a fan of him as a player, but i did enjoy seeing him backstage with all the other guys. You could tell he was just happy being there, and had a good amount of chemistry (from what I could tell) with the team.

I hope he finds a decent spot as a bench player in the future, but not going to miss him on the court.

I doubt, Bynum will be interested in playing for this team and MDA.... he has a better chance to succeed if he signs with the Clippers.... I think we'll likely sign some D-League player for the last spot... we need to start developing youth...

This has to be a prelude to another move. Otherwise I don't think Shawn was costing the team much unless we somehow got under some salary level that would be beneficial and I don't know about.

Sad to see him go. I like him in limited minutes off the bench.

Interesting...
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

If anyone gets traded right now, it will probably be Kaman.... MDA has misused him all season long.. and you gotta think... it's frustrating Kaman a lot.

I don't think any big trade is gonna happen..

bulls waived him

i honestly hope kaman gets moved in any deal that is made. just another victim of dan tony's worthless system and i'm sure he doesn't like sitting on the bench all game either

Yes because we need a 350lb 7foot cripple boat anchor on the bench rolling his eyes and not participating.

I'm pretty sure cachooka was joking, but reports are Bynum wants to get playing time, be on a contender (this is key), and get paid nicely at the same time. That's not us.

@Chris_Broussard: I'm told 8 teams are interested in signing A Bynum, most notably Heat & Clips. Playing time, contender status & $ all factors in decision.


@ESPNSteinLine: As @Chris_Broussard reported earlier, money is among prime factors for Bynum when he chooses his next team after clearing waivers Thursday

As expected, Bynum wants opportunity to succeed, and he won't get that here.... I think the Hawks might sign him.

The Hawks are still in good position to make the playoffs and get HCA.... and if Bynum is focused they can make noise.

I doubt it.

1) he has two rings (and actually earned them)
2) he doesn't fit their system at all
3) they won't pay him what he would want
