LO if here is taking a pay cut.

Morrison IIRC is our option. We will hopefully dump sasha for a pick B/c a team will want his short contract for 2010 class

IMO Fish retires if we win ring

I hope we keep those guys you listed
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

The only thing Bowen could hit is 3 pointers, inside the line, he's garbage. Ariza can finish and dunk, even when he's not on his outside game. Ariza will be better than Bowen.

I would trade Fisher + Morrison (both 2010 friendly contracts) + Farmar to a scrub team and resign Fisher after 30 days...aka pull a McDyess type deal. we can get someone good in return for that package :shifty:

I heard Fisher talk about his future just recently. He said he is going to fulfill his contract next year and after that we will see what happens. Fisher is not retiring. Besides why would he retire when he is making decent money and is still healthy. He probably will come off the bench next year though.

Ariza is much more finely tuned on offensive then Bowen and Bowen is a much better man to man defender than Ariza. Ariza more of a team defender and all Bowen can do on offense is wait in the corner and shoot open 3's, Ariza can take you off the dribble and take it to the hole as well hit the open 3.

About Fisher, he better not get MLE money. 2 mil tops is the most he should get, he really has shown hes not worth the MLE anymore.

horrible comparison, Glen Rice was one of the best pure shooters in league history and unlike Ariza played poor defense. Ariza is a good shooter now but no where near what Rice was.

I'd take Ariza over Bowen's prime any day of the week.

No way, Bruce is more of a one on one defender and only has one shot. Ariza right now is more of a help defender, hopefully he can become a lockdown defender though. But he can drive the lane and hit 3's.
