I wanted him as a Center. Him and DeAndre on the same team might've been possible if Kobe doesn't get that long extension or maybe if Nick Young doesn't get that contract, but that's neither here or there. LMA as a 4 & someone like RobinLopez or Tyson Chandler would've been nice, but I'd much rather see Randle play the 4 and grow. It's irrelevant though, I think LMA is a way better 5 than 4, and I bet coach Pop will get LMA to believe that too. The player that fit the most with the Lakers was always DeAndre. A big, athletic, defensive 5 would've been perfect to pair with Randle & Russell. I don't think he was ever going to come to the Lakers though.
At this point, we have to trade for a big salary nobody wants that comes attached with a pick.
Roy Hibbert, NeNe, anybody... as long as you attach first round picks and maybe take Nick Young's contract back (although I can live with Young's contract for now)
David Lee never made sense to me. GS has no picks or young players to offer. Unless they throw us Looney, but the Lakers passed on him for Nance so idk.
Bottom line, I just want picks and 1 year contracts. We're doing this tanking thing again.
Hopefully we get our pick. Then we can either use the pick (and hope to strike big in 2015 free agency), or package it with Clarkson for a good player (Boogie?!?!)
