This is a sign lakers want cap space next season. Lin and Asik are both expiring next season. With nash going off the books as well. Probably gonna be a throw away season because FO doesn't want to commit to any FA's this off season other than melo or Lebron.

If we get both Asik and Lin and at the same time can salvage Nash's contract it would be something else!

Wait, if they acquire Nash, can they waive him right away? Or do they have to stretch him?

He's gotta retire or they have to waive him then stretch his contract

I dont mind at all.  I hope he will have those Lin Sanity magic for us.


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.

There's no news of Asik being included in a deal so let's not get ahead of ourselves

Why is there so much Jeremy Lin hate.  He's actually a quality PG and with this market, a one year $8 million dollar rental for a guy like him that will probably sell lots of jerseys within the LA Asian community is pretty solid haha.  Asik is also a great defender that would be a great pair for Julius Randle.

Yeah what's the point of taking on Lin when you can just sign Thomas? Purely for cap space next season.

 

I hope we don't do this.
