We are already one of the youngest teams in the league and have had enough projects over the last couple of years. Stick to the guy that just helped us get to the NBA finals in Lamar Odom. He is a vet in his prime and has now gone through the battles of getting to the finals. That combo of skill and now finals experience is priceless!!!!
Very shortsighted opinion.
LO at the 3 neutralizes much of his rebounding opportunities. Additionally, when was the last time we had a near-allstar, super versatile player with a $14M expiring contract?? That's GOLD in the NBA. LO has had his chance here. He'd be fine at the 4, but we have Pau, so with AB coming back, LO either starts at 3 or...rides the pine. There's NO WAY IN HELL Buss, or any other team owner, will pay someone $14M/year to come off the bench.
