KG and Paul Pierce cannot be Clippers because the NBA will see that as a violation to the River's deal (separating the deal). Quality Experienced Role Players. KG ain't your normal veteran. Paul Pierce's game never had to do with athleticism or speed. 


Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

Pierce will be a Clipper without problem, he was going to be released so there's no issue with him.

 

Kevin Garnett, on the other hand will be interesting.  A straight up deal won't be allowed, but if they do a three team or four team deal that changes the complexion of the deal with pieces going to other teams as well, I'm not sure if they can stop the deal.

No not really.     If he still wants to be a starter especially no.

Farmar back as a back up? Sure. 

 

Don't see where he fits in though. D'Antoni is not benching Nash and Steve Blake was pretty solid for us.

Depends if he's released or traded. 

 

The Cavaliers have offered draft picks for Pierce and that might be attractive to the Celtics who wouldn't have to pay any part of the contract, opposed to paying part of it if they release him. 

 

“The Cavs have likely spoken to the Celtics about small forward Paul Pierce’s availability. The latest rumor is the Cavs offering their two second-round picks for the 35-year-old Pierce. Pierce’s $15.3 million contract for next year would become guaranteed if he’s dealt.”

For us?

Well if we re-sign Dwight, we'll have 8 roster spots taken.  When we waive Duhon we'll have 7.

 



Currently here's our roster if Dwight re-signs(No re-signs aside from that)

Kobe
Howard
Gasol
Nash
Blake
Hill

Metta

That means 5 roster spots for 12.  And 8 for 15 though the Lakers usually go for 14 so let's say 7 roster spots open.
5 for the rest, 2 for reserve.


So who are the 5 that would be on the team and the 2 reserves?

Alright well let's go for the 5 roster spots first

Earl Clark is a no brainer

So that leaves 4

Next is the athletic wings, let's say Dorell Wright and Ronnie Brewer.

That leaves two more spots.

let's say by some grace of Lakers Magic.. we sign Monta Ellis, either that or picking up Meeks option.  Alright there's the next spot.

That leaves one spot left open for the "active roster"  

Now let's go for the two reserves.  

Morris, Sacre, there you go.

So it comes down to what that last one spot that would be open would be, could be a draft pick, could be Goudelock. 

So then your entire 14 man roster would look like this (bolded is reserves)

Steve Nash/ Steve Blake / Darius Morris
Kobe Bryant/Monta Ellis(example) or keeping Meeks/ Draft Pick or Goudelock
MWP/ Dorell Wright/ Ronnie Brewer
Pau Gasol/ Jordan Hill/ Earl Clark
Dwight Howard/ Robert Sacre


There's your 14 man roster(with the 15th spot open as the Lakers like it that way)

That would pretty much be the "bare minimum" off-season moves roster(if you eliminate Ellis and just go with the 'keeping Meeks')  and if Pau isn't traded and Metta isn't amnestied or we don't pull off a blockbuster deal.

I think it depends on if we re-sign Clark and someone like Wright. 

Pretty much I think if we get two wing forwards he won't be here.

But if we only re-sign Clark, he'll be here out of necessity.   

 

Because as of right now he's our only small forward and I don't think we'll force Kobe to do it with Meeks starting at the 2.  

So if we only re-sign Clark.  I don't think he'll be amnestied, but likely if we sign Wright, and Brewer as well etc then he'll probably be amnestied.   It's just about having people that can duplicate production at the start.  Wright not so much, Earl Clark can.  And Wright would be floor spacer and Brewer would be defender.

 

At that point it would be no point in keeping Metta unless you're appealing to Kobe who loves his tenacity and heart when the "going gets tough".    Metta could be that Haslem or Battier role player that is there to be tough and bang and do the "tough guy" things.  But not at 7 million.   So I think it all depends on what forwards we sign aside from Clark and how much Kobe pleads.

When is the amnesty deadline?

Lakers have to decide about amnesty during the first week after the July moratorium

I believe it's the second week of July? Not entire sure. 

 

I know that Metta needs to decide by Tuesday whether he will opt out of his contract or not. 

 

Only reason I don't believe Metta will be here is because Larry Coon mentioned that if he is amnestied (or not brought back if he opts out), it will save the Lakers $30 million in taxes.

Another reason Metta might not be amnestied would be if the Lakers found a trade package with him in it, though I dunno what we'd get for a combination of Metta and Pau + filler but they may find one.

Though I do know there may be some teams looking for a guy like Metta and may be willing to part with some younger pieces for his veteran-ness and intensity, if we throw in Pau too we could shed a lot of salary while picking up some players by the deadline.

Though like I said, I dunno what we could possibly get but that could be another reason. 

Just Pau may not be enough in the trade deadline if he's sucking.

Pau for some players and picks Metta for some draft picks, who knows what they could both be used for or what we could trick... I mean entice teams into taking....  We do need some trade chips for that if it's gonna work. 

Because if I'm the Lakers I'm looking at 2014 draft 1st round picks from teams that could land the top 10 picks in that draft and I'd be willing to part with Pau and Metta both to do so.   However I don't know what other teams would take either or and give up such picks considering who is coming through.

Thanks for the heads up on Tuesday .  So in about 24 hours we'll know what MWP is gonna do.


Though "MWP opts out, looks to sign for vets minimum" wouldn't surprise me at this point.. I don't see him opting out unless Mamba tells him to

Yeah, that's why I was a bit skeptical when he said "I'll let my agent do it and just said " justmake sure I stay with the Lakers" " 

See I don't trust his agent would do what HE(Metta) would do and would be more likely to price him out encouraging the Lakers TO amnesty him.  If it was Ron himself and Kobe asked him he probably would opt out and take less money to come back.  I don't trust his agent to do that though.

Remember the last time a player let an "agent" ensure he stayed with the Lakers?  X_X It was the guy Metta replaced.

I think the Lakers would rather amnesty Metta, save the money in taxes, and bring in a couple cheaper SF's to fill the void ( i.e. Webster and someone else).
