We've passed on guys like CDR, Gerald Green, Delonte West, K-Mart and Leandro Barbosa this past offseason and a lot more have signed elsewhere, unnoticed by LA. Now, when we passed the trade deadline we see teams like OKC and Boston make small, subtle moves, that will help them going forward.
OKC landed Ronnie Brewer from the Knicks for a 2nd round draft pick, which probably will be the 59th.
Boston landed Jordan Crawford for Barbosa's expiring and Jason Collins.
Why did we not land these guys for a 2nd round pick and few expiring contracts???? Both of these guys would have been nice additions to our roster. Jordan Crawford could be an instant-offense, Jamal Crawford type who still could turn out pretty good. Brewer is an elite wing defender, who can be used as both a back-up for Kobe and MWP and give us a defensive stopper in his prime.
Am i crazy for thinking this?
