It seems like Jodie cannot thrive off the bench like he did last year with the Sixers. But CDR can. He can be Kobe's back up 2.

this is what ive been saying. let jodie come in for Metta, move kobe to the 3, let nash play with shooters. and let CDR create O in the 2nd unit, which needs that

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

Meeks is ok so far he has had terrible games but so has jamison. Not expecting anything big from both of them in 5 pre season games. Also i hope CDR does make the team. Hes a good shooter and can be a back up plan if meeks fails.

Idk why people constantly say players are garbage for only playing under 7 minutes.... where does that thought process even come into play?

The logic behind that is that a player who doesn't get many game minutes must not be impressing the coach in practice. If the player was good, a coach would theoretically play him more. None of what I say really applies to CDR since this is preseason and minutes are being split to accommodate 20 players. I'm just answering your question from a "generally speaking" point of view.

CDR is an enigma right now. He hasn't really played a lot of minutes and hasn't really impressed me with the minutes he got. Couple that with the fact that he was passed up by every other team (remember, he came to LA very late in the process when he was available all summer). it makes you wonder what the problem is. This guy was a definite NBA caliber player prior to last season, but somehow no one bothered picking him up until us, and since he's been here, coach hasn't really given him the minutes. Strange....

Same situation last year with Gerald Green...

Who turned his Post-Laker life into a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal with Indiana to be one of the top players and primary scoring options

That has to be the dumbest response I've heard... There is a lot of talent that coaches overlook ex. Devin Harris played for the Dallas Mavericks he didn't get any minutes at all and didn't get his big break til he went to New Jersey and played lights out. And even in his interview he turned down multiple offers to come to the Lakers.. smh

I still believe ebanks wont do much for this team. If right I think CDR will be the guy to fill in. The 14 or 15 man roster will determine allot to though. Duhon clark and morris's contract is really hurting his chances.

I do think though that if we go 14 man roster and we cant fit CDR in there we might buyout clark due to being hurt and the fact that he sucks. Though it would just seem easier to have a 15 man roster with CDR and then keep clark. Either way clark is gonna get a good amount of his contract.

How can you say Clark sucks when he's bad limited playing time?

EL SEGUNDO - The Los Angeles Lakers have waived Chris Douglas-Roberts and Greg Somogyi, it was announced today.

Douglas-Roberts, a three-year NBA veteran out of the University of Memphis, was originally selected by the then-New Jersey Nets in the second round (40th overall) of the 2008 NBA Draft. Douglas-Roberts has appeared in 155 NBA games (53 starts) for the Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks, recording career averages of 7.7 points and 2.2 rebounds in 20.6 minutes. The 6-7 forward spent the 2011-12 season playing for Virtus Bologna of the Italian League, where he averaged 12.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 27.0 minutes. Douglas-Roberts played in four preseason games for Los Angeles where he averaged 4.0 points and 0.8 rebounds in 8.3 minutes.

Somogyi, a 7-3 center out of UC Santa Barbara, played all four years for the Gauchos where he posted career averages of 3.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 12.2 minutes. In three preseason games with the Lakers, Somogyi averaged 1.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 7.7 minutes.

The Lakers training camp roster now stands at 16 players.
