I know a few people along with me wanted the Lakers to go after him. But, does the fact that he returned briefly, then missed the rest of the season make it not worth it? He is supposed to be ready for training camp.
The Lakers desperately need a wing scorer in Kobe's absence. Pau has been playing great, but I don't think he fits. I think we'll see more of what happened in game 1 against SA next year without a wing player who can score consistently. It didn't fit for most of the season. It's just how the league is going these days.
Courtney Lee gives the Lakers an athletic defender and somebody who is more capable of starting in Kobe's absence. When Kobe returns, you can slide Courtney into a backup role and get Meeks out of the rotation.
The Celtics really need size apart from KG. They are really awful when he's not on the court. They definitely in win mode now with KG and Pierce still under contract. They give up 3 disappointing role players. I think they're good, but they haven't been this season.
The Pacers will have a need for a PF and a backup guard after this season. David West and DJ Augustin will become FA. Bass has been a good starter in the league before and Terry can be a good reserve player.
