Why not sign him for Vet minimum? And then trade Blake and Duhon. Why? Because from what I've seen so far this preseason, our bench is still one of the worst even though Jodie Meeks is starting to show his range we could still use someone off the bench that could shoot and knows how to score. Plus he knows how to use the Princeton offense effectively with Eddie Jordan as his head coach in his prime with the Wizards. Not also that but he played with Jamison with the Wizards which means him and Jamison could really work together off the bench.

Last year:
Arenas: 4.2 ppg in 12.4 mpg
Blake: 5.2 ppg in 23.3 mpg

Here's a video of probably his best game in Grizzlies


Not to mention he also knows how to play pick n roll with Howard


In my opinion it's definitely a low-risk, high-reward if we sign him.

Yeah right... so that's why we almost got Beasly last season for Steve Blake.

old? He's younger than Blake, he's only 30 and Blake is 32. He might not be as explosive as he was but he's still more explosive and still better than Blake.

Who knows, I wanted him last season when all the talk was going on and despite him working out and if i'm not mistaken Mitch said he looked good, at the end of the day Mitch didn't sign him. I know there are ppl worrying about our bench but after all Mitch has done for LA I think that when he doesn't do something is for the better of the team so don't worry about Gilbert hes not coming to LA no matter what.

In Mitch I trust.

Im pretty sure we were giving up more than blake. If that is so then thats why the trade didnt go through. Also blakes stock was higher at that time than it is now. Duhon and blake are un-tradable. Everyone can try to rationalize it as much as you want to think someone would take them but no one would. The GM to take that trade would lose his job the next day.

The only reason the trade didn't happen because Minnesota didn't want to take Fisher's contract and maybe some other guy's too. But the Blazers definitely agreed to take Blake for Jamal Crawford and the Lakers suppose to receive Beasly. And it's not like were asking for talent for a return for Blake or Duhon.

We were giving up part of the Odom TPE in that deal for Beasley. That was what Minnesota wanted, they had zero interest in either Steve Blake or Derek Fisher. They would have been included merely to facilitate the deal and shed a contract. Minny's owner got cold feet at the last minute and the trade was called off. Ended up working out for us in the long run because we flipped that TPE for Steve Nash who is obviously a much better pickup than Beasley could have ever been.
