Lakers looking at Kurt Thomas IF they lose Turiaf?

Here is a little note I saw about the Lakers possibly looking into Thomas if they lose Turiaf:

MySA.com: Miami and the Los Angeles Lakers have expressed interest in Thomas, though the Spurs could offer more money than either of those teams. In all likelihood, the Lakers would partake in the hunt for Thomas only if their bid to retain Ronny Turiaf falls short.

    Is Kurt Thomas even good?

    I’m sorry, I think I just don’t pay attention to him.

  • Michael_23

    Kurt Thomas is a proven veteran. For the short term, he can do. But Ronny is a solid defender and high energy player.

  • DCLAKER

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO(sorry for the o’s but…)OOO WAY!I like Kurt but I’d rather Posey,PLEASE MITCH get guys who can shoot and can help Kobe jump over these guys heads,remember KB dunked Dwight Howard,WHOA!The old Lakers is what we’re striving for,leapers,dunkers,finishers,slashers,shooters and defenders,JUST LIKE THE OL’ DAYZ(Michael Thompson,Byron Scott,James Worthy guys like that,no slow pokes)!

    Keep Ronny or add Posey, but we DONT need Thomas, BUT if that’s all we can get that’s all we can get

  • marloveslakers24

    I’m with that.

  • yellowpurplefever

    Kurt is very reliable, but cost too too much!! Mitch is watching Buss’s pocket for him just in case he looses in poker or law suit for dating teens. lol

    Remember this guy can also shoot the ball from mid range. Hes a solid defender. This guy can honestly can give guys like Duncan and Garnett trouble. Thats how good of a defender he is.

    i think if they can’t sign ronny thomas is a great alternative.. we can sign him to the vet’s min.. or a little more and use the MLE on posey.. or some of it on sasha.. i think the alternative to sasha is posey and now we know what the alternative to ronny is thomas..
    i have a feeling mitch will unload either luke or vlad’s contract by including ariza in a trade.. like he did to get rid of cook.. we had to give up evans..

  • S-quire

    I’ve been down with Crazy Eyes for Lakers for a while, just what we need in terms of veteran presence and solid contributions. BUT I don’t wanna give up anyone. I think he should be on our short list for MLE.

    check out my lakers video

    ELTON BRAND JUST SIGNED WITH THE SIXERS I GUESS WE DONT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE CLIPPERS ANYMORE.

  • ab4sure

    One yr. … for 2-5 million… adds toughness, experience, good locker room guy, good post defender… and can teach these soft lakers a few things.

  • LakersFirst

    Kurt Thomas would be excellent backup in the event that Turiaf signs with another team. He is a solid player and Phoenix was dumb for trading him to Seattle.

  • KOBEISKING

    Is it just me or is Miami interested in EVERYONE!?!

  • Fantastic5LAL

    just resign sasha and ronny.

    LOL, he does look like he’s on something. That’s just what we need, someone who say’s to the other team, “WHAT?! WHAT?!?!?! I’LL EAT YOUR TRACHEA!!!”
