Vlad is still a good shooter that would do well somewhere that needs a pure shooter rather than a defender. We could use a defender more than a shooter at that position right now. We could really use another one-on-one defender that don't get out of position and blow assignments - our transition defense is hurting. I think Battier would fit that role nicely, not to mention he's not a bad outside shooter. Remember guys, we don't need a superstar, just a good role player, and Vlade hasn't been consistent - hell, Luke stepped in and has had more of an impact as a passer.
I really think a trade will happen at some point and I think Vlade, Mihm, and any of the first year guys will be involved. Unfortunately, I also think Ariza might be involved due to him being in the final year of his contract, and I'm not sure the Lakers will spend the money on him. Hope I'm wrong on that though.
