    who the fu**?

  • Lakers 24 7

    They should be signing the GOOD free agents, what is this!?!?
    Unless they are planning to make a trade, cuz we already got enough guards.

    Kobe, Farmar, Vujacic, Fisher, Mitchell, Crawford, Sun Yue, and now Brandon Heath…Thats half the roster of just guards.

  • Sako

    WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lakers Galore

    why is mitch signing so many guards? doesnt he know that we already have enough? we have kobe,d-fish,sasha,farmar,mitchell,crawford,yue and now brandon heath? thats almost/about half the team right there. shiz man, we need another big body not another guard but i know mitch wanted 18 players for training camp but still doesnt make a lot of sense..cause our frontline is short on big men we have bynum,pau,mihm, and powell u can throw in odom and vlad too but they arent really suited to play pf so we needed another big men. =/

    Mitch needs to go after Carl Landry. He’s a solid player who can contribute right away.

    Newly-signed free agent guard Brandon Heath faces big obstacles in his quest to make the Lakers’ regular-season roster. No fewer than six backcourt players are competing for backup minutes behind incumbent starters Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher.

    That includes three players with guaranteed contracts – Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic and rookie Sun Yue.

    Others vying for a spot include Coby Karl – who split his rookie year this past season with the Lakers and their D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles Defenders. Free agent signee Dwayne Mitchell, who was impressive on the summer-league team, and second-round draft pick Joe Crawford also are expected to be on the floor when the Lakers open training camp in 19 days.

    But if nothing else, this will cause Heath’s competitive spirit to be sparked even more, according to longtime Westchester High coach Ed Azzam, Heath’s high school coach.

    “Knowing Brandon like I do, this doesn’t scare him one bit,” Azzam said. “He doesn’t mind competing. And I believe that he’s going to surprise some people.”

    The 24-year old Heath played on one of Azzam’s most talented teams, and there have been a number of them, during Azzam’s more than two decades at Westchester. Heath’s teammates included current Laker Trevor Ariza, current Toronto Raptors player Hassan Adams, former Cal State Fullerton player Bobby Brown, who signed this summer with the Sacramento Kings, and former Georgetown star Ashanti Cook, who has played in Europe and the NBA’s D-League.

    Heath averaged 16.7 points per game over a four-year career at San Diego State, while starting 120 of 125 games. He applied for early entry into the 2006 draft but withdrew his name prior to the deadline. But after not getting drafted last year, he spent the season playing professionally in France, where he averaged 12 points in 25 games.

    Heath’s four years at San Diego State were productive outside the gym, too. He graduated with a degree in sociology and was on the student advisory board.

    “I was surprised that he didn’t get drafted,” Azzam said. “But he has all the ability in the world to play in the NBA. He’s like Trevor – long, athletic, quick, he gets into the passing lanes and he can shoot the lights out. I think he can be a great addition.”

  • DCLAKER

    I GUARANTEE he makes the team….only to be traded,just like J.Critt.,damn.

    FARMAR you better be on your job…or else,

  • kobean

    we need zo now

  • Laker&HeathFAN

    Heath is a good player with the ability to score, and pass. I saw him play at San Diego State for 4 years, believe me this guys is a balla. I was shocked the clippers didn’t sign him b/c he was on their summer league team, but the clippers don’t know talent anyways. i hope he can make the team, he is better than Coby Karl.

  • e

    if a lot of guards make it to the team, a trade is imminent

  • RemJ

    ive watched heath at SDSU games. dude is legit. please believe.

  • Paul Crandell

    Brandon Heath is a legitimate NBA player. He can flat out score from anywhere on the court. Brandon plays defense with a tenacity that is electrifying. Lakers fans will be buzzing when Brandon comes off the bench.
