Anyone would be an upgrade to Williams. The guy's a total scrub even by Lakers standards which isn't very high at the moment

His contract would have become fully-guaranteed had the Lakers not waived him by today.

So is there an underlying point of interest here? Dantoni loved him and started him and FO was like, "bye".

DAMMIT. What if he signs with the Clippers!? Our ace-in-the-hole!

On another note, does this give Kaman at least some assurance that he might get a minute or two of playing time? lol

Ouch. I would feel bad if not many Lakers fans don't visit him.

With Williams gone, whose the next useless player on the team?

The rest?


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health, 2. High Draft Pick!, 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Nope), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Still waiting, wow)

Probably Kelly. Although I wouldn't call him useless. I'm interested in seeing how he performs given more minutes.

Not necessarily. Today or January 10th is the deadline for non-guaranteed contracts. They simply chose not to stick with Williams.

We become a worse defensive team with this move.
But I see it as a pre cursor to something.

Don't expect Lakers to fill Shawne Williams' roster spot any time soon...unless another guard goes down.

When Shawne Williams has a major impact on your defensive scheme, you know you're in the weeds.
