Are the Lakers thinking about bringing him over for the next season? I mean, he could be a very nice pickup for us at the 1 position. Granted he won't be getting much play time due to being a rookie, I still think he'll be a solid player for us.

Think about it, he could be everything Lamar Odom was meant to be, minus the spectacular rebounding. He'd have mismatches every game because of his size, yet he's quick enough to hang with the other guards in the league. Maybe not the exceptionally quick guards (i.e Monta Ellis, Barbosa, Harris), but the majority of guards can be evenly matched in speed.

Also, from the few videos I've seen online, he can get to the rack and has a decent jumper. His three pointer needs work, but at his age, he has a LOT of time to develop a consistent perimeter shot.

I think it's a win-win for the Lakers if they bring him in. There's no way they could go wrong considering he's still a rookie and would get limited playing time. Also, we got him in the second round http://lakernation.c...tyle_emoticons/default/laughing.gif


What do you think?

From what I've heard, this guy can't even hold his own on the Chinese national team. :)

You mean in scrimmages or holding a job?

He's got some tough competition on the Chinese team in Chen Jianghua. Chen is a heck of a player with great court vision and a nice perimeter game. Very quick as well.

Frankly, outside of a few Lakers scouts none of us no much about this guy, which is why the Olympics will be big for him. He gets the chance to prove what he can do on an international, high level stage. And we all get to see what he is really made of.

Yeah.. meaning '09-10.

I'd love to see him so some work.. that would be awesome.

Is this the guy that was called the Chinese Magic Johnson?

I don't think Sun Yue has a future in the NBA.

He's one handed, has absolutely no jump shot, and cannot play off the ball. Because he can't play off the ball, he doesn't have the athleticism to be an NBA point.

I wish Sun Yue can make it on the Lakers roster. Then there'd be an Asian guy and we'd have one of the most diverse teams in the whole league. :clap:

The team has had ongoing conversations with the agent for Sun Yue, the second-round draft choice from 2007 and Kupchak affirmed that he expected Yue to be with the team in training camp. Yue just needs permission from his team in China to come to the U.S., and his agent said that process has already begun.
