There are still some big men that can give us quality minutes. Sean Rooks just got signed today by the Hornets. Jason Caffey is under contract. Looks like Elden might be in Philadelphia, Brad Miller might be in a Jazz uniform, Scott Williams already signed with Phoenix again, Chris Anderson is restricted, i highly doubt we can outbid Denver for his services, and so is Drodjnak. Jelani McCoy, well we tried that already. So whose left?
Popeye Jones - good solid player, good rebounder, can shoot the mid
range jumper, but his age might be a concern.
Donnell Harvey - not that tall but extremely athletic, but Denver might
give him more than what we can offer
Cherokee Parks - can shoot the ball well, but defense is a liablity, and he
has a grip of tattoos
Robert Horry & Mark Madsen - You know they want to come back, they
could be the last hope
Gary Trent - slowed down by injuried but can still play very solid for the
Lakers, his height might be an issue
Chris Dudley - good size, good rebounder, physically is an issue, his age
is an issue, and then Hack-a-Dudley 40% FT Shooter
Kevin Willis - oldest player in the league, but gave San Antonio good
minutes and can help out in the front line
Darvin Ham - electrifying dunker, good rebounder, hustler
Corie Blount - still can rebounder, solid defender, former Laker
Vladimir Stepania - excellent rebounder, Euro player, maybe someone
who can help the Lakers on both the PF and C
Pat Burke - solid player, can shoot, but is a defensive liability
Tyrone Hill - excellent rebounder, works hard, can play both the PF &
C, but age is a concern
So who would u pick from this list? I think we should bring back Robert Horry, and if we cant do that, Tyrone Hill and Gary Trent should be at the top of the list.
