According to a user, Dr. Laker, at the forums at LakersGround.net, McDonell was defending the Derek Fisher signing, but he was defending it in primarily in the context of “step one in a series of steps.” Fish not being a solution in and of himself, but as a piece in a “grand plan.”
He then said that the Lakers ARE very much working on a huge deal (no names were dropped), but that after the team’s recent lack of media discipline, they are playing it very close to the vest and keeping things quiet. McDonnell used to have credibility with the Lakers (during the Jerry West regime) and may still have an inside line.
In any event – My question is: IF the Lakers are working on a secret, huge move, how likely are they to be successful? Sound-off in the comments!
