He is a really good player off the bench. If he can control his off court actions, why not?
Player Press: The Los Angeles Lakers might end up getting the man they were hoping for in the first place.
The Lakers had been trying to trade Sasha Vujacic with a first round pick in order to get his salary off the books. They had attempted to make the trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Delonte West.
That did not work out and on Tuesday the Cavaliers traded West to the Minnesota Timberwolves. However, the Timberwolves will “almost certainly” buy West out of the remaining $4.6 million on his contract for $500,000, making him a free agent.
If the Lakers can move Vujacic, sources say that they are going to add Delonte West to the roster.
This move would certainly give the Lakers a way to match up with the Miami Heat and stop LeBron in the case that the two teams do actually end up meeting in the Finals next season.
