Mihm is looking for an MLE deal. Lakers reportedly after Blake. One thing is for sure, Mihm has been at every Lakers game practically supporting this team since his injury. Hopefully the Lakers can work something out for both parties to be happy.

Press Enterprise: The Lakers hope they can re-sign center Chris Mihm and a veteran guard.

Mihm’s agent, Jeff Austin, told the Lakers his client is looking for the mid-level exception of $5.5 million.

The Lakers think that is too much to pay for Mihm, who missed all of last season recovering from right ankle surgery and still was paid his $4.2 million salary.

    Too much for a guy that sat out all of last year.. $3M/ year would do.

    That’s because phoenix doesn’t know how to use a bench. jalen Rose would be a great pickup for a veteran.

    I would select Webber first, J. Rose second (he should have a fresh body not having played in almost 2 years) and Grant Hill DEAD last.

    No way do I want Grant “my feet hurt” Hill, not even for $1.

    If we didn’t have 15 signed players, we could have used the vet minimum last year, but we already had 15 signed players. This is one reason why the lakers will only have 14 players signed this year in the event they can bring someone else late in the year. So last year, vet minimum was not applicable due to 15 signed players or players under contract. This year we could use the vet minimum early or later in the year.

  • dude

    HAHAHAHAHA….. throw his ass away for asking more. for doing what?…. dont give that foo shit

  • lakersforlife77

    we could’ve had webber and kidd :(

  • RC

    Well fellas, last post for the night, what a day:

    1) overpay Luke
    2) pursue Steve “SUCKS” Blake
    3) sign free agent Coby karl (another slow player)
    4) Mihm wants full MLE

    What a shitty first day and a sign that nothing good will happen this offseason including NOT getting KG or JO!!!!! Later fellas, be in touch soon, the one and only RC, top NBA and Laker poster on the globe.

  • NY Kobe Fan 8

    peace mihm

    you fucken suck anyway i dunno why anyone would consider keeping this bum

  • Rpoc

    LOL. MLE? Wow.

  • lakers_

    LOL he wants more money than what he got last season…what a joke. Please chris go away, thanks.

  • shibernibber

    umm, goodbye. Even Mitch wouldn’t give Mihm that kind of money. (shit, maybe he would) We don’t even know if Mihm can walk much less play ball after all those foot/ankle surgeries. Lakers should just let him go. I would rather give turiaf and little gasol playing time than sign mihm to that kind of money. If anything, he should take a 1-2 mil contract for 1 yr and prove his worth before demanding that kind of money.

  • unomas

    mihms a moron……lol at im

  • wise1

    i think mihm is good but for a back up center he deserves more like 3 mil max!

  • lakerfan81

    5.5M is overpaying for Mihm. He hasn’t even played in a year. He will be hard pressed to find any team that will be willing to pay him that amount. 2-3M is a little more realistic.

  • AP43real

    No MIhm NO…..

  • 2k8kb24

    I say lets do it cuz the bulls want him kinda… so lets trade him to the bulls for some players… i had a question though if you have a player that you traded for can you trade him again… or are they restricted… that would be cool… if we got some one like nocioni and then traded him and some other people to memphis for gasol….

  • lakerfan81

    Chicago seems interested in Mihm and getting rid of Nocioni. Maybe the lakers could do a sign and trade for Nocioni: Mihm fillers for Nocioni. Just a thought.

  • 2k8kb24

    thats what i was saying but once we get nocioni for example are we allowed to trade him agian???

  • lakerfan81

    You have to wait 60 days after you sign a player before you can trade him. I think thats 60 days after after the start of the season, not 60 days after you can sign players which is July 11th. I think that makes DEC 15th the earliest day he could be traded. Plus I think only about 50% of his contract can be used to match salaries because of some overly complicated rule.

    Besides that signing a player just to ship him out is not very fair to the player. Signing a player to come play in LA then trading him elsewhere is like hiring someone to your office in Hawaii and then shipping him to Siberia. I’d be pretty damn pissed.

  • 2k8kb24

    i would be to… but as people say its a business!!! and well most teams dont want mihm if chigago wants him lets get people in exchnage like nocioni and ship him out cuz we have to many SF-PF as it its…. sorry man but where we are right now with all this stuff we need to do anything in our power to get this team to be above 500 we have done stupid thiings in the past and we are still doing stupid things…

    isn’t that be kind of like doing a 3ways trade????

  • 2k8kb24

    well im talking about after we get him…

  • RC

    Laker fans, KG will not come to the Lakers. Listen to this, the lakers just signed Coby Karl (son of George Karl, Nuggets coach) to a free agent contract.

    Now that is a mistake waiting to happen. As soon as cancer Coby Karl gets lonely, he will call his father and give away all of the Lakers secrets, and the Nuggets will end up beating the Lakers in the regular season or the playoffs. The Lakers front office are the most stupid idiots (I agree Kobe) in the NBA. Hire George Karl’s little spy, his son, STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

    And you KG fans think KG is coming to the lakers, not with this lakers front office, wishful thinking, PAY ATTENTION, they are idiots (and Kobe said it)!!!!!

  • MO6
