I like the idea of having a 23 yr old with a career avg of 15 and 5, coming off the bench for the worst bench in the NBA.
This. It's gotten so bad for Lakers fans and our bench that some of us no longer know what a good player would be or look like coming off of our bench.
He's still young and relatively raw and has a career average of 15ppg while never having a defined role or team that was committed to his success. Look across the league there are not too many bench players who average 15+. Those who do are highly coveted and are all a big portion of their teams success. On a team where Steve Blake is our 6th man... yeah Beasley is a very appealing idea.
I think Hill is a great role player big man and I'd rather keep him if possible.
