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.

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

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.

Beasley hasn't even cleared waivers yet dude. Calm down.
