This free agency dilemma continues.

Fan House: Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Lakers guard Shannon Brown, said by phone he’s still talking with the Lakers about a possible return. But nothing is close enough yet to assure that. “We’re still talking, but there’s nothing done,” Bartelstein said.

    Earlier in free agency, I was pretty against re-signing Shannon, but let’s be honest, the Lakers aren’t getting any younger and now that Shannon has realized there aren’t lucrative offers for him, hopefully we can sign him to a reasonable pricetag.

  • Brown Hater

    I was just wondering do the Lakers still have their bi annual exception and if so can that be added to what is left with their midlevel exception to sign a player or do they have to be used seperately

    Hurry and get Barnes


    Well, this sounds interesting. Especially after it’s been reported that the Lakers are looking into sighning Lin. Who is 6-3, has a good shot, can space the floor, great decesion maker and take opponents off the dribble. Shannon is listed at 6-4, is quick, can jump, can light it up on occasions when he is hot but will give almost no stats when he is not. Lin, if picked up, will fetch a small contract where shannon is looking for a bigger one.

    Maybe Lakers has other plans and the plans are not Shannon Brown. The Lakers want a player who can do more for the team.

    • letsGOlakers!

  • Jay-Mc-Cain

    Ehm… i wonder whats gonna happen with Powell, Ammo and Mbenga? Get rid off em!

    We need good defensive players… re-sign shannon… sign jeremy lin…. sign barnes…..

  • Joseph

    Bartelstein always needs his minimum cut so don’t expect any 1.75 mil contract to be enough… at least 2+ mil.

    There’s no way, with hindsight, I would’ve ever called up Larry, called up Magic and said, ‘Hey, look, let’s get together and play on one team.’

  • Sir

    Who gives a f about shannon? Hurry up and go after t-mac/barnes before the heat do.

  • LizzakeShizzow…

    Sign Barnes, Jeremy Lin, Caracter and Ebanks already!

  • Jack Y.

    Shannon probably wants too much $$$.

  • tradesasha

    forget shannon, just hurry up and sign up matt barnes mitch, before it’s too late!!

    so kobe has the lowest shooting%of any finals MVP…thats funny.most missed shots ever in the NBA gotts to be the MAMBA….right TARD?

  • Get It 2gether!

    Well, Matt Barnes is close to signing with the Raptors 2 years 10mil. No Barnes or Bell, the Lakers bench is looking weaker by the minute. Most of the quality free agents are signing else where. I don’t know what the Lakers want to do. As it stands, they don’t enough money to work with. They can try Jeremy Lin, Devin Ebanks, and Derrick Character. But who knows how long it will take for them to be effective. Or Phil Jackson will give them minutes.
