Well Martin is a better defender than Jamison. If we roll with Jamison at the 3 then Martin can pick up the other team's 3 on defense. Do It Mitch!!

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

I don't think so. He'd be primarily playing against backups. It's not like he'd be going up against LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony. World Peace would guard those guys.

well, even if we did get him, theres not enough minutes to go around since hill resigned

also, i doubt MB would play jamison at the 3, he hasnt been playing the 3 in afew years

From what I seen last year with the Clips, K-Mart can still play defense. But I don't he'll get enough playing time with Antawn and Jordan sharing minutes at PF. Antawn hasn't play SF for the past few years. So I don't think the Lakers will move him back at that spot. He would be a disaster defensively at SF.

Jamison on SF on offense and PF on defense. K-Mart PF on offense and SF on defense. Don't know why people have not mention this.

Yup, doesn't ever deserve to wear purple and gold even if we needed him, which we don't.

No way. Awful attitude and we've got no place for him on this team.

We Already Have Bynum, Gasol, Hill, Josh McRoberts, & World Peace Can Play Big In Smaller Lineups, We Need To Get Another Guard To Backup Kobe, Not Another Big, If We Didn't Resign Jordan Hill, It Would've Made Sense, But Naw I Think I'll Pass. -_-

Here's Emplay's thoughts on K-Mart...

According to the rock-solid @sam_amick, Kenyon Martin is talking to the Lakers and Nets. For the Lakers, it doesn't add up if they have Pau, Jamison, Hill, Bynum and McRoberts - but if they think that out via a Howard trade with Josh out - Kenyon is a very solid add. He's the definition of surly and doesn't have much of any offensive game other than clean-up points - but he can still defend multiple positions and bailed out the Clippers more than once last season -

Ive always like KMart, not his salary. If we can deal mcbob and cash to make room 4 him I'd b more than willing. He will give our front line the grit that we haven't had. But I want a Sg (Etwaun Moore) b4 we sign any1 to insure KB gets his rest

We could sure use grit on the front line with Pau wincing before contact.

Lmao, but yeah. He will give us an added dimension. Kmart and MWP on D would be exciting.

If he comes for the vet minimum why not? If he is thinking LA he probably wants a piece of the ring action, not the money. He is still athletic and will post problems to other teams on the defensive end with his length. He could give the Lakers one solid season for sure. He'll get boards, block shots, and easy put backs. He would add a lot of depth to the bench.
