What to do next?

What to do next?

Postby echo nation on Thu Jul 17, 2003 4:56 am

Current Roster Under Contract:

Shaq
Malone
Cook
Slava
George
Fox
Walton
Bryant
Rush
Payton
Fisher
Pargo
Total: 12 Allowed 12 + 2 on the IR

Free Agents:

Walker
Horry
Mad Dog
Murray
Shaw


Needs:
(Granted with the Fab4 the needs are slim, but they're still there)
A pure shooter
A backup 5

-------

with all that laid out, whats next? we can sign up to 2 more players...
doubt they'll address a need through trade w/o creating another need

your thoughts of POSSIBLE solutions? free agent or otherwise?

here's what i might do

Trade Slava for a 2nd round pick or something to clear up a roster spot

Re-Sign Mad Dog - He hustles, he has a good attitude, and she showed signs of life last year offensively

Sign a shooter, perhaps Pike Voshon Leanard or Jon Barry...( sorry guys LuHarris isnt leaving NJ)... i pick Jon Barry because of what his attitude would bring to the bench.. he also has mad passing skills

Sign a back up Center... I dont care what anyone says, Stanley Roberts will always be one of my favorite

----

potential problem with this plan...

Slava has great offensive skills and will make whoever gets him look good once he's out of the triangle... the quesiton is how long do you stick with this project?

will haveing both Brian Cook and Mad Dog be redundant?

no "shooter" has done well w/ the Lakers... Rice, Richmond, Murray, even Jon Barry years ago... its possible but is there another steve kerr out there?

stanley roberts... haha... id love to have to him but in all seriousness, would the lakers even consider it? or *gasp* would Roberts think he deserves more than what the lakers can offer?

Stan couldn't cut it with the Krispy Kreme All-Stars. Ain't no way hes coming to LA and Madsen is a favorite of mine however hes got to go. With this new team he does not fit.

If Shaq had his way Stan would be a laker as would Dennis Scott, and Anthony Mason

The only problem with signing a shooter is what happens to Kareem Rush? If a shooter is signed that means Rush is gone. Who do we trade Rush to and whom do we hope to get in return? Package Slava and Rush for a backup center? Im not sure. Is fish staying or going? We have Pargo, who has more of a future. A Fish, Rush and Slava package? Or a Pargo, Rush and Slava package if we keep D Fish.

Well, he shot the lights out a couple times. His last game, he was 4/17 so I wouldn't say he was on fire...

He did have one good 14/18 for 33pts game... but he's been inconsistent at best.

Brian Cook though, has been doing well. 7/15, 9/14, and 7/12 in the past 3 games.

i for one am tired of people saying we trade slava or rush or other players with potential that make less than a million$ a year!! It is soooo stupid!! why dont we resign horry and package him with fox for a quality shooter from dallas or sa or houston? teams are always looking to save $ and fox has said he would retire if he was traded(there fore clearing 5-6 million in cap space next year with garnett and other big name players on the free agent up and coming list) and horry is still a good shooter at a good cap figure. did that make sense? and i know I LOVE FOX but i love the championships he helped us get more and i want a four peat or more this time not my heart broken in four years again!! out of this trade we could get a young shooter or a young pg like arenas(i know hes going to the wizards but its just an example) cause payton after this year or next will be gone imho.

MABYE WE COULD TRADE FOX AND HORRY(VIA SIGN AND TRADE) TO DALLAS FOR VAN EXEL. HELL FOR VANEXEL I WOULD EVEN THROW IN A FIRST ROUND PICK NEXT YEAR, OR DARE I SAY FISHER.
is shaq satisfied with three titles and continuing to blow up to 400 lbs or will he get the other hunger back and get down to 320 and win three more?? GO LAKERS 2004-06 CHAMPS!!!

i like that phrase props to you .. i agree rush will have a way better season cause now he has experience under the triangle and im sure he's benefitted from schoolin people in the spl cause it improves he's confidence as well as pargos

Rush athletic?

Postby nosebleedbum on Fri Jul 18, 2003 1:51 pm

Rush dunks like derek fisher. Haven't seen him in action much so I'll take your word for it. In which case, maybe he should start using it to defend some people, and make a few shots. More people will like him if he can go 2-4 every game. Phil would.
