Whenever a new coach is brought it, they like specific players to run their systems. We saw it with Phil Jackson who liked big guards, savvy veterans, etc.

This team is obviously going to speed up the tempo and get a lot of possessions, but in the off-season (and even this year at the deadline) I expect the Lakers front office to look at different types of players.

Had D'Antoni been in place to start this season, we could very well have players like Barbosa, maybe kept Barnes, etc.

What types (or who) of players do you see the Lakers going after? Obviously we'll still be financially locked up but we'll still add a player here and there.

I say, it all depends on our players to be honest.

If Jodie Meeks can hit a majority of his threes and Jamison finds his stroke we may not be making too many changes on the bench front.

However I think the major MAJOR factor is how Gasol fits into the system. If he struggles I can see him being going to Atlanta for Josh Smith + one.

The thing is I get the feeling Mitch is quicker on the trade figure this year than he was last year because he wants to get things early enough to form a chemistry. So if Pau continues to put up miniscule numbers in this system then he could be gone.

But the three most important factors that determine what Mitch will do

Are Pau, Meeks, and Jamison imo.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

Would have been real nice to have Barbosa!

I wonder how he is doing this year...
OH thats right, he is TEARING it up and doing great for the Celtics as the primary backup PG...

Depending on what players will ask for, you could see shooters like Morrow or Korver join the mix. The big thing will be adding a athletic wing player if Ebanks doesn't flourish on this team. Corey Brewer, Ronnie Brewer are a couple names that can fill that role.

Again, I'm not sure what those guys would command this off-season but I do know that players love D'Antoni's system so that could help recruit players.

Not our fault he didn't come here, he choose the Celtics on his agents recommendation.

We need a spread/athletic wing. I have no problem with Metta, but he has to be consistent at nailing those wide open 3s. Things will get interesting as the trade deadline approaches. I expect that there may be a team or two that will be having a fire sell.

I think LA will wait a while. There have been quite a few shakeups since last season ended, so they will let things settle for a couple of months. Probably closer to the deadline, I think LA might try to trade Pau as a salary dump in addition to maybe acquiring a better fit PF, athletic wing, shooter, or some combination of the above. I don't see a Pau for Josh Smith swap completely out of question come 2013.

Of course they will always be looking to get rid of Blake and/or Duhon in whatever ways possible.

This makes the most sense and is realistic

Word is Hornets & Matt Carroll working on buyout after CHA dealt Carroll for Hakim Warrick. Possible free-agent shooter for Lakers' radar?

Matt is a 6'6 SG who is has shot a career average of 38% percent beyond the arc and less than 1 assist while averaging 16.5 minutes per game. I'll pass.

Raja Bell is a natural for D'Antoni Lakers to pursue but Bell still on Jazz roster. Lakes also have $100M payroll & full roster to cope with


Give em Duhon. lol, better to have a 3 that can shoot.
