He is a really nice guy and I like Kelly the person though...but thats not winning basketball games.


Yikes. That might be the worst post you ever made. No offense. Just my opinion.

He doesn't rebound, but Kelly's a solid passer, posted a 2:1 ast/ratio...at 6'10"...as a Rookie. That's crazy. Name some really good passing bigs. I don't know that that has ever happened before.

just for perspective, Frye does nothing but shoot 3's and reb's like a 5 10 PG, but yet he managed to last this long in the league and recently got 8mill a year.

@WojYahooNBA: Free agent guard Xavier Henry is nearing agreement on a 1-year deal to return to the Lakers, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.


@mcten: The Lakers have reached a one-year agreement to bring back Xavier Henry on a minimum contract, per league sources.


Nice.

Sweet! At least we've got a guy who might be able to play SF on day one. :man10:

But really I like Xavier. I'm excited to see him back. Please!... stay healthy man.

Perfect. I hope he stays healthy. With consistent minutes behind Kobe, he should do well.

Loved his athleticism and dynamic play last year.

@mcten: Henry also fielded some interest from MIA and IND, but preferred to stay in LA and build on what he established last season


Clearly he likes LA, he was hanging out and working out here all summer. His only issue for me is health, if he can avoid major injury I think he can continue To develop.

Excellent!

Now we have

Lin/Nash (Clarkson)
Kobe/Clarkson (Young)
Henry/Young (Kobe)
Boozer/Randle/Kelly
Hill/Davis/Sacre

Now, X really has to stop playing reckless basketball. He has a lot of talent, but he's going to get hurt again. Still, I am very glad he's back. And for the minimum? Nice.

I wonder if we have space for another player for some 2/3 depth?

Nice move, he was probably our most promising young player last season, before the injuries. Glad to have him back. Wish we hadn't let Bazemore slip away though. But, all in all, good move.

I think Henry will backup Kobe, if not, I don't mind him starting at SF either. But we should still have the Room Exception to grab a SF.

And we should. But X is perfectly capable of playing the 3. Clarkson will be used for scoring, IMO, at the 2. Extra wing depth can never hurt though.

Now get a good coach and let's roll with that.

Perfecto! Now just sign up a starting 3 for the 2.7 million and sign up B. Scott for coach. Done deal we're ready to roll.

Really liked what Henry did for us last year. Sure he isn't the most consistent player, but as a bench player it is nice to have a guy who can go for 20. Slowly putting together a solid team...

Postby KB24 on Fri Jul 18, 2014 3:47 pm

At 12.4 X has the lowest PER of all players signed by the Lakers this off-season.

Boozer at 14.4 is second and also below average.

But its a good deal for minimum and only one year.

Good to have him back. He seemed to take a step forward with us and is still young enough to progress even more. He needs to stay on the court however.

Welcome back X! Stop with the landing nearly stiff kneed for your last big steps on moves to the basket. Not good for you. :man12:
