Yeah, not really much point in getting him. Jamison and Hill will log most of the backup time, and you already have McRoberts for depth.

Being Interested doesn't mean anything, how many players have been interested than picked crappy teams over us...

Also AJ could play the 3 so he would have a spot on this team.

I read a few weeks back he wasn't interested in the vet minimum, so I doubt we even take a look at him based on that alone.

I don't want him here. I have never been a fan of his game... just another athlete (past his prime at this point) who didn't develop his game beyond that.

They're probably looking at playing Jamison at the 3. Rotation would look something like this.

Nash (30), Blake (18)
Kobe (30), Meeks (18)
MWP (24), Jamison (24)
Pau (33), Martin (15)
Bynum (33), Hill (15)

I like the idea of Jamison at the three cuz of his perimeter shooting...but I don't think he would keep up with smaller forwards.

I wish we had some good quick on-ball defenders at the 3 :(

Would this mean Jamison would be playing the small forward position if the Lakers do pick Martin up?

Yes you should want him here. You dont need to run plays for him, he aint scared to get a lil dirty, he is still very athletic and can be a solid lob option for Nash. Get him if its for the low $

Idk didn't watch many Cavs games. I do know that he's been a 3/4 tweener for most of his career.

like i said, hes way to old to play the 3, he would be abysmal on defense

hes going to most likely be playing most of his time at the 4, so kenyon wont even be considered unless he comes for dirt cheap, but we dont really need him because theres not enough minutes
