Offseason Plans?

Offseason Plans?

Postby lakersforthewin on Sun Apr 25, 2010 12:00 am

I know it's a little too early to really think about the offseason but I wanted to see how we could address our two biggest weaknesses: the need for a shooter, and a PG.

1. Secure a pick in the early 20s, whether it be through cash considerations (more financial commitment will be needed from Dr. Buss here) or through trading future second round picks.

2. Draft night

#20(s)-Eric Bledsoe
#43-Jimmer Fredette
#58-J.P Prince

3. Let Farmar, Powell, Mbenga, and Morrison go.

4. Retain Brown if possible at maybe 3 yrs/12M

5. Re-sign Fish to a one year vet min deal

5. Split the MLE between C.J Watson/Steve Blake/Chris Duhon and Anthony Morrow/Kyle Korver

6. Bring over Chinemelu Elonu if possible (if not, re-sign Mbenga)

7. Trade Vujacic for a big man such as Jeff Foster or Reggie Evans

Lineup for next year:

Fisher/Watson/Bledsoe/Freddette
Bryant/Brown/Freddette
Artest/Morrow/Walton/Prince
Gasol/Odom/Elonu
Bynum/Foster

We would be filling up all 15 roster spots which admittedly doesn't give us much flexibility but we rarely will use an extra roster space anyway. Prince and Freddette will be spending most of their time with the D-Fenders. Fisher would be limited to starting the 1st and 3rd quarters and clutch situations.

These moves give us:

-Players that can spread the floor so that teams dont bog down in the paint against us
-More bench depth
-Intriguing prospects with all of our draft choices
-More hustle and energy hopefully with Elonu (ala Ibaka with the Thunder?)

Your thoughts?

Wee need more depth behind Odom, Gasol, and Bynum. Either trade Sasha for either a big or a starting PG (add Farmar in a sign and trade deal). Then ue either part of the MLE or vet min for another big. Or draft a big because SF is and will be over crowed.

I like Jimmer I'm just not sure that he will stay in the draft. He still doesn't have an agent I think which means until May 8th he can decided to go back to school. If he stays I would love for us to take him with our first 2nd round pick.

I really like getting Korver. I watched him Friday against Denver and he played great. He was passing great, playing good D not great but good, and hitting some key shots. I think he would do great in our system. The thing with him is will he take 3mil if he will then done deal. Then we offer Luke a medical retirement and the chance to be an asst coach (Just kidding but not really).

Here's a realistic offseason...

Trade Sasha and a couple future 2nd Rd picks for Francisco Garcia (Kings do this for money reasons)
Sign Steve Blake to a 3-year deal starting around $3.5-4m per year
Sign Rasual Butler to a 2-3year deal with the remaining MLE
Re-sign Fisher to a minimum contract
Sign Kurt Thomas to a minimum contract
Re-sign Shannon Brown
Draft a big man (Lawal, Caracter, Varnado, Pittman) with Memphis' 2nd Rd pick

PG: Steve Blake...Shannon Brown...Derek Fisher
SG: Kobe Bryant...Francisco Garcia
SF: Ron Artest...Rasual Butler...Luke Walton
PF: Pau Gasol...Lamar Odom...2nd Rd Pick
C: Andrew Bynum...Kurt Thomas

Blake, Butler and Garcia all add three-point shooting and scoring to our second unit, and Thomas gives us a tough and experienced big man who is hungry for a ring and willing to only play 8-10mpg.
