Due to Kaman not being our future. Who will be at the center position? Will we get one in 2014 or will we wait?? Who the hell would it be for that matter??

Probably no one thats a big name.  The 2014 free agent class is somewhat dry especially at the C position.

If MDA is still around, the lakers signed their franchise center in Jordan Farmar.

Monroe and Cousins are both RFA next year. Bogut will be a UFA next season to.

I think we'll keep Pau Gasol who'll sign a quite favorable deal next season. I know people are hating on him now, but if he signed for 5-10 million he'd be underpaid, given the salaries that big-men get (Tiago Splitter just got a 4yr 36 million dollar deal...).

 

I think guys like Greg Monroe or Andre Drummond would be interesting to look at. To me it depends on who we manage to sign in Free Agency.

Which one you think Detroit would be more willing to let go.

I think Allstar game should tell you a "C" is not as important as it used to be. Lakers need future SG, SF, & PF to carry them as Title Contenders in 5yrs & longer.

That's only because of the lack of quality centers. If Shaq 2.0 came along, NBA teams would start thinking about how to get bigger to stop him.

Cousins is the one who would probabbly be the most attainable cuz hes a psycho but who wants to pay top dollar for a head case?

A head case thats still 22 wiith tons and tons of potential. Hopefully not the Kings. I don't see them matching a big contract to him. Hopefully we make a move.

This. It's only not a big man's league anymore because there aren't any decent big men.

 

Hibbert is available in 2015, btw.

Agreed he has alot of potential but lakers dnt usually take chances on guys like that and the kings will let him walk if the price is too high

Right and I heard Shaq say on TNT in this offseason he was starting to mentor Cousins. Him and Wall would be good future Lakers. I like Cousins beside Pau and Wall in the backcourt with Kobe! Pau needs a different type of mentality next to him at a center role. I can see Cousins battling with any of those so called big men, especially Howard.

If we could land Cousins and Wall that would be awesome.

Shaq is suppose to help him with his maturity? Now that is a laugh riot right there lol.

Detroit aren't letting go of any of them if they can avoid it. Let's see if they can.
