Don't move this. :man6:
The Lakers are close to getting a second-rounder from Seattle and want IUPUI guard George Hill.


It's the 32nd pick most likely.

Seattle owns the 32th pick.

That said, who is involved?

If it's a trade rumor, it's going into the Trade Rumor forum.

I think it's Hill, because it's been said that LA has worked him out and liked him. They covet him enough to trade up for him.

But I wouldn't mind Dorsey.

They're bound to move some of their picks. This isn't the NFL draft, no team needs 6 draft picks.

I expect it's for Hill. But I would rather have Weaver or Dorsey if they are available.

Not sure why we want to take on anymore young players, don't we still have Sun Yue coming over? I've never heard of this player, I wonder why the Lakers are so high on him, anyone seen him play?

Did you see the word rumor in that article? its a report therefore its not a rumor.

I just say that because the finals showed a glaring weakness in paint toughness, and there is no one in this entire draft better to suit that need.

Easy snappy, if it's not a deal yet it's still in rumor status. Why bust my balls over semantics? :man3:

He's a good prospect and can play D, but it's because he has triangle experience.

I would almost consider no longer being a Lakers fan if they picked Joey Dorsey - not really - but I can't stand that guy. He's a chump with little skill.

Just this second...

Postby gcclaker on Tue Jun 24, 2008 5:06 pm

OK... The question is are the Lakers losing anyone to get this pick? Is it just a trade for future picks?

A strong physical big who can patrol the paint, D up, and rebound with the best of them. Yeah, who wants that?

I imagine it is our 2nd round pick this year + our 2nd round pick next year. Maybe cash consideration as well.

I have a feeling that Yue is involved.

Yue + 58th for Sonics' 32th

We have two new expansion teams? Good to know.

And that has nothing to do with the discussion. He was a 1st round prospect for the longest until the slew of international prospects declared. Millsap, Boozer, Anthony Mason, Kukoc, and Rodman were all big men taken in the 2nd round. Try again with some relevant.

JSM,

your last point is the best, all these players except kukoc are in the same mold. Not spectacular, but tough inside. We need that, and that is the type of player you can get in the second round that can help your team.

I like what I have read about George Hill but Nicolas Batum is said to be falling out of the first round because of his heart condition.

If I were the Lakers I would find out what Batums problem was and make a decision.

Yeah, I've heard all those foreign players mentioned (as being avoided because they are turning into busts) and since we're pointing out mistakes, it's relevance.

Mitch Kupchak has earned my trust. If he sees a player that he thinks is worth moving up to get, then he moves up to get him then I am very excited. This player George Hill had to have shown something good.
