This is probably the one thing I see having a lesser chance of happening than Howard to LA.

They would have a scorer off the bench, which the team has lacked the last two seasons.

That comparison doesn't fit. LeBron signed an almost max contract. He was willing to "sacrifice" just a little bit on his contract, but more than made that up with no state taxes. To sign a MMLE here, Mayo would be signing way under market value to come here.

I wouldn’t mind Mayo as the third guard behind Nash and Bryant. He has the height, speed, and length to defend Westbrook. He just doesn’t have a strong base to deny post position. He’s a liability on the block.

Goudelock.

He doesn’t have any point skills.

exactly. if i remember, the grizz tried playing him at PG and it didnt pan out. one of the good things of having him in LA would be reducing kobe's minutes which is much needed at this point

If he comes it'll most likely be a S&T. In a S&T he'll be able to get the money he wants. I would sign him to a 4 year/20 million dollar deal. TO after two years.

Exactly.. If he can get the same contract here as on any of the teams mentioned.. Where is he most likely to play himself in to the most money in his next contract? When role players play well for us they get overpaid usually.. Fish, Ronny, etc.. If he comes to LA & wins a couple of rings as our 6th man, being groomed by 2 of the greatest guards to ever play.. How do you pass that up? There are plenty of minutes to be had behind Nash.. We have no business playing him more than 28 MPG.. & even if Kobe plays a ton of minutes again, we can always move Kobe to the 3.. He's a more efficient scorer at the 3 for his career.. I really hope we pull this off..

Mayo can grow to become the best 6th man in the league especially with mamba n nash teaching him along the way. His name alone is a la lakers type of name. Bring him here!!

Mamba has what? 2 to 3 prime years left. Mayo will definitely have a role if he is patient.

The Lakers need a backup PG more than a backup SG. Actually, they need a combo PG/SG that can run the offense and still be able to shoot. Both Nash and Kobe are old, and need a backup. Why can't their backup be the same player? OKC has James Harden, who actually plays both backup PG AND backup SG. Since he plays both positions he actually gets starter type of minutes even though he is a bench player.

Nash is older than Kobe, and Nash should come out of the game 1st.

When Nash comes out of the game, we need a reliable PG to check in (ala James Harden type) that can run the offense. Then, when Kobe comes out, the backup PG can slide over to SG and spell Kobe while Nash checks back into the game. So, Nash would be in the game while our backup PG is now playing SG. Essentially, this backup PG would be playing starters type of minutes even though he is coming off the bench. Then, when Kobe checks back in, the backup PG/SG checks out of the game. This is exactly how OKC uses James Harden.

No it's not.


Says you...please source this properly.

Who on AM 570 said this?
Who was the information sourced to?
Why are there no secondary sources?

Were these questions ever answered? This seems like a wild rumor with little to no substance, and it really doesn't make much sense at all. I highly doubt Mayo ends up on the Lakers, and I doubt the Lakers are seriously interested since he's likely seeking a large contract which would make him a very expensive backup to Kobe.

He played SF in the triangle all the years after Phil returned and is usually guarded by the other teams SF anyways. It really wouldn't be much of a change and he plays there frequently anyways.

They been taking my advice if true lol, plus OJ came up as a pg, he was actually the number 1 rated pg ahead of d.rose in high school. He'd be first off the bench for Kobe and Nash. We could bring in a Flynn as well. I would also include glock in the trade hope it's true yell™

Flynn would be a nice cheap back up, esp if we are trading Steve Blake (please let it be true). OJ can definitely run some point, and he can learn a few things from Nash. But I'd probably want him playing the back up 2 next to Nash...he will flourish at that position.

the second Nash comes out of the game Kobe is gunna run the offense regardless of who the backup pg is or what mike brown wants...just can't expect him to let anyone but Nash run the offense when he's in

so all we really need is a guard who can shoot and maybe penetrate a bit. that's why sesh was perfect...wish he didn't leave bc it was perfect. a guy like delonte or nate who can shoot would be perfect.

IMO, Kobe would welcome it. Not trying to open a can of worms, but I remember Kobe mentioning and how easy it was for Jordan playing behind the defense. Yes, that was in the triangle, but I do think Kobe would like it. Especially with a PG/QB like Nash.

Holy crap if we got mayo for those 2 scrubs that would be incredible. A younger quick guy who can shoot 3s? Perfect.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

He's really just an overrated chucker who doesn't have much of a positive impact on his team. But our bench is such garbage we can't afford to be picky

Exactly. Come to LA, get a chance to help a legend win some more rings, learn from him, and get a payday when he's done whether its from the Lakers or from someone else if the guy performs off the bench he'll get paid as a starter somewhere. He's only 24 right now, he'll be 25 in November. 3 years under Kobe puts him right into his athletic prime as Kobe is on his way either to retirement or to heavily reduced minutes. Not to mention he gets to practice against and learn from one of the best players to ever play his position? Honestly I don't know why more players in his position (not quite a proven starter but a really good bench player) don't take that route, I mean sure it's a gamble if he under-performs or doesn't take in anything from Kobe but it could really pay off for him in the end if he does well and learns.

I'll never understand why some fans think you can just plug this guy into this spot and it doesn't matter. After 16 years in the league Kobe is gonna switch to SF b/c hey...it's no big deal. There is more to basketball than simply plugging in what you think the best lineup is.

According to an NBA executive the Suns sound like the team to beat for OJ Mayo. Exec said "Mayo would fit in well in Phoenix. It's obvious the Suns want help at SG with the Eric Gordon offer sheet."
