Am I the only one that is happy with the effort that the FO gave us this free agency period? We were not suppose to be in the running for Melo (or Lebron kind of) but somehow we were in contention at the end. I hear alot of members complaining about not signing building blocks for the future like Isaiah, and Lance
Isaiah Thomas is 5'9 and lacks vision ( yes i watch sac games hes a pure scorer that doesnt play D)- not sure why members here want him so bad. Theres a reason SAC let him go.
Lance Stephenson has a much more complete game but is he worth 12-14 mill per year? This is the same guy that assaulted his GF. Especially for the amount of years he wants?
Not sure why people here think these guys are going to be "building blocks" to lure free agents to come to LA.
Jeremy Lin deal = we got him for free... plus a draft pick lol
Swaggy P = 5 mil a year for a solid bench player is not a lot considering the cap is like 60 million.
Jordan Hill- Yes hes overpaid but its only for a year. How many centers are free agents this year that would be willing to sign for a 1 year deal. Monroe is the only other center worthy but he wants a max.. Lets put it this way if we didnt sign Jordan Hill, we would have to start Sacre or a vet min like okafor. I would much rather have Hill.
The FO also drafted Randle, and Clarkson - both are looking very solid in summer league
I know you guys all dont feel the same way but im happy with the moves so far from FO. They tried everything they could to get Melo but not everything works out way sometimes. Also proud of them for not being irrational and signing young players to long term contracts just to please impatient fans.
