I agree with Nelson and Somogyi, however I'm not sure Goudelock will get cut this early.

He won't, but he should, he fills no need.

Goudelock is more useful than Morris IMO. I'd take an out of position Goudelock over Morris ANY day. At least Glock can shoot, and he's confident.
But maybe you said Goudelock because Morris is guaranteed? I read something like that, hope he's not

He looks the same as always, it's just going from Nash to him makes it look worse.

It's true, Morris does have a guaranteed contract.

CDR is fast, can get to the rim, can shoot and play some defense.....

I don't know if it was my crappy feed or not, but his turnovers, he's trying to make bounce passes in traffic to 7 footers. That's just not smart.

If it were up to me I'd cut them both, Goudelock is useless, Morris is just terrible. I did indeed say Goudelock because Morris has a guaranteed contract I believe. Why they gave it to him I have no idea, but it looks like we're stuck with him.

Well the second unit doesn't seem to be in grasp of the very basic of fundamentals...... boxing out! Ebanks is nailed to the floor on every shot.... he just stands there and turns his head while his man runs to tap or secure the offensive board.... He's not the only one not but he's been the most glaring the last few possessions .....

I sure hope our bench will be much improved but unless they are just coasting right now they look like crap again....

He was trying to pull a Nash with that one, problem is he's not Nash, he needs to keep it simple.

To be fair it's not our full bench, Hill is out and he's a hustle guy and rebounder. Meeks hasn't looked that great though, Blake is still Blake, but I believe Jamison will get better as he finds his role. Ebanks, meh, I'm not a big fan, I'd rather play CDR at the backup 3.

Roberts is showing more energy and effort than any of our other second unit.... I say we keep him....

CDR scores again. He's a keeper. We can do much worst, I mean look at the rest of our bench.

I wouldn't count on it as long as these 3rd stringers are on the roster, preseason is to see who's good enough to make the team, not really to win. I've seen plenty of Laker teams suck in preseason and then come out rolling when the real games start.

I guess that's one way to look at it.... but this is when you MAKE the team and we should be seeing more effort now because if you don't do it you will be cut...... and we still aren't seeing much. CDR looks like a guy playing for a position as does Sacre at times but some of the others seem a step slow and completely lost.....

Jamison making the transition to "bit" player will be a bigger adjustment than some have thought. Many have penciled in 12 to 15 points a game based on his starter numbers.... time will tell if he can make that transition at that level....

Hill's effort and hustle will help as will getting Howard back and having Pau in with the second unit... That much is certain.

I really hope we keep CDR, he can definitely contribute. Also, he can play the 2/3 spot which is a definite plus.
