"A source said the Mavs have agreed to non-guaranteed deals with a pair of veterans, swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts and center/forward Melvin Ely. They will join the team Friday morning. The Mavs, who are in the process of parting ways with Delonte West, will likely choose between one of the three newcomers for their final roster spot. One potential roadblock could be if negotiations don't progress with West's agent, Dan Fegan, and the Mavs opt to leave West on the suspended list."

Why ? Usually ex-Lakers or guys that were not given a chance with us come out determined to show the organization was wrong by doing so .. They come out with a vengeance.

We can't classify it as a mistake until we see CDR show that it was indeed a mistake.

It's a different situation and playing time is different in Dallas, so IF CDR has a good game or a couple games with the Mavericks I seriously hope people here don't freak out. He's a bottom rung bench player and the Lakers waiving him is no big loss.

The second guessing of one of the best front office in the NBA (and maybe in sports) by Laker fans is astounding to me. Have you looked at the win / loss history and the trophy case for the Lakers?
