Kobe, Meeks, Johnson, Young, Harris and Shawne Williams. That's 6 wings. Perhaps it's time to get a PF instead?

 

Odom, Beasley or Tyrus Thomas. C'mon Mitch...

He's a camp invite for a reason.  He's 3 years in the NBA couldn't even get 6th man minutes by accident on teams that were undermanned at his position.  I doubt he makes the team to be honest.

If he plays a little defense, he would be our perimeter "stopper" by default.

Wesley Johnson can play the 2 if need be, so Henry is out of luck there as well =p

Though he's a scrub, I like him a bit

 

 

Long arms, can hit the 3 occasionally, can run and jump

 

 

Again, better than Ebanks

Among wing playersXavier Henry looks terrific, as expected, at 6-5 ¼ without shoes, with an excellent 6-11 ¼ wingspan.

camp invite. He won't make the team unless we're unloading Meeks.

Championship here we come!


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Lakers signed him to a contract, so it's different from a camp invite.

He's probably going to have a partially guaranteed contract but no guarantee to make the team. Interesting though

Lakers getting younger damn... This is weird. I'm used to them signing Theo Ratliffs lol and inviting players like Ronnie Aguilar to camp

This is the "you can get cut in camp" contract, not the "he's our backup this" contract. Will be nice to see during pre-season though.
