Lakers have 11 players under contract. Lakers need 13-15 to fill the roster. I think the Lakers need to sign wing player. I don't think Jodie can cut it. Sorry, Jodie. Prove me wrong. I think the Laker need to sign Ronnie Brewer. He is a good young defender. Not a good shooter cause he messed up his elbow when he was in high school. But I think he'll do fine he can do the things Trevor did while his 2 years here with the Lakers. He can't shoot but can get his points slashing to the basket. I personally think if the Lakers sign him, he should start and Wes comes off the bench at the 3.
At PF, Latest news from Kevin Ding and Arash Markazi is now it's unlikely Lamar is coming back to the Lakers. Elton Brand is rumored in talks with the Knicks and the Lakers are interested in him. But he might be out of the Lakers' price range. If the Lakers can't get one of those two. I think the guys next in line who I think can contribute here are Kenyon Martin, Amir Johnson and Tyrus Thomas.
Yes, K-Mart is 35 but he's still showing that he can play defense. Just look at the past couple years. 2 years ago with the Clips and this year with the Knicks. He can still defend the pick and roll. The bench has enough scorers. They needed a little defense from the bench.
Tyrus Thomas, the former #4 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. Still young at 26 years old. Didn't shoot the ball well the past couple years but if the Lakers sign him, all I want from him is defense. Good defender who can block shots. He didn't get to play much last year cause i'm assuming it's due to what was reported as a mere bruise knee he had. It could be more than it was first reported. That's a little concerning if that's the reason why he's not playing well. Or he sucked cause he hated being in Charlotte. What do you guys think?
