i think you look at terrence williams, when he's gotten 20 minutes or more he's put up 8ppg 4rpg 3apg. his per 36 minutes is pretty high. he gets his point totals in the 15+ range

 

while that's not a great tell, it's an idea and the point is he's athletic, he's very skilled and he quite frankly has been relatively screwed over minutes wise for multiple reasons, one of which being attitude.

 

having said that, in this type of scenario, assuming we resign odom 

 

pau

odom

williams

kobe

nash

 

williams can easily take advantage of stronger talent around him and a collective high basketball IQ surrounding him as well. he could be a diamond in the rough

 

that would give us a bench of

 

kaman

hill

young

meeks

blake or farmar

 

i can live with that. best case scenario you trade blake for a SF that can defend, or even better trade blake for a 2nd round pick or something and just sign ronnie brewer

 

pau/ kaman

odom/ hill

williams/ brewer

kobe/ young

nash/ farmar

 

ya, there's a ton that needs to happen to accomplish that roster, but that roster can get a 4th or 5th seed and would be a tough out assuming it's 100% healthy

So Young is gonna be our starting SF

Kupchak on Young: “We think there’s a lot of playing time here for him if he works hard. We see him playing at the small forward position.”

 

I guess we're gonna roll with Nash/Blake/Meeks/Farmar in the backcourt until Kobe comes back

I asked @NickSwagyPYoung if he should be penciled in as starting Lakers small forward. "Should be," he said.

Never understood why there was any debate about that. He's 6'7, a shooter, and he made to play either 2/3. We signed him to be a floor spacer, another scoring punch for us, and (finally) a guy who can create his own shot. With Kobe still on the roster and no other viable SF options, Young will be our SF for the short term.

 

I actually read a few posts mentioning Meeks playing the 3, which is ridiculous. Meeks is like 6'3, how was he supposed to do anything against opposing SFs?

If and when CDR makes the team that changes and Meeks goes to the bench while Young starts at the 2 I think. 

Currently he would be.   If CDR makes the team, that likely changes.

I see Kobe being the 3 and nick the 2.. SF might be stronger than Sgs but slower..

I really hope we sign another wing, theres a few young guys that I would love the Lakers to take a chance on.

 

Low risk, high reward

Johnson, Wesley

Maggette, Corey

Martin, Kenyon

 

Each person can take, vm, but im hestitant on Wesley Johnson...he might want more

Yup, I thought it was pretty obvious that for now he will be at sf. that may change depending on signings but doesnt look that way as they have small guards and (not counting kobe) young is the only sf capable player for now.

meeks is kinda small for a 2 let alone a 3 lol.
Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’

No point in getting Kenyon Martin when we have Kaman.

^ Yeah, K-Mart is easily one of the best players still available that can be had for cheap, but again as you said, we're pretty much already full there. He's way better than Sacre or Ryan Kelly that's for damn sure, but it is what it is.

kaman is a very different player than martin. i can see him for defensive purposes and the high probablity of one of their other bigs getting injured.

kmart would be a sound move, but would also be the safe move that doesnt help them down the road so i could take or leave him.

Say what you will about K-Mart and his rep or tattoos or whatever, but the guy still has an impact when he's out there on the court. Whether it be last season with the Knicks giving them a huge boost or the previous season with the Clippers in the playoffs, particularly in the series against Memphis getting relied on especially to play the more meaningful minutes over DeAndre Jordan & a few others.

Terrence Williams or Wesley Johnson make sense athletically

Plus we have had huge success turning athletic wings that haven't performed well into serviceable role players

George, Ariza, Shannon to name the recent ones

hard work and playing time did that. i wouldnt say the lakers turned any of those players into anything as much as the natural progression and playing with superstars did. devean george was drafted by them, ariza was already performing, and sb never got the minutes to shine till he came here. They could have just as easily never stepped up and never had the chance.

not going to say phil had no part of it, but you could at least give the assistants some credit.
