I don't agree wit that at all actually.  Mozgov serves little to no purpose on this team.  If anything Robinson showing he has what it takes to play a role has killed Mozgov's minutes (and rightfully so) along with any use he has for this team now or going forward.  And don't give me the defensive purposes rant.Mozgov does nothing to help defensively at all.

I keep telling people that he was very thankful and grateful, "Cleveland." I think I was part of one of the best teams in the world, and it means a lot to me. A lot of emotions that I received, which gave a lot of thought. I feel that I miss this place ... 



But at the same time, I'm happy where I am now. We have a good young team, we work hard, grow together. And I love it! You could say I'm in a sense, still I continue to develop it. 

At the beginning of the season someone said that we do no not win the match! And now predict exit in the playoffs. But the team is young, the season is long, we'll see. 

Now, it seems to me, the team once again finds his game, drawing back. I think back to it, and win, that is not far off. There is also a big part of coaching. Generally, I like what we're doing with Luke Walton. I can see where we can grow.

Context, the enemy of shoddy reporting :)

Lakers inquired about Noel, but not willing to part with core pieces according to Sean Deveney (who?) of Sporting News.

Only reason I wouldn't give much up for him is because he is a restricted free agent and we would probably have to over pay to keep him. Plus he is a solid player but he isn't some dominant center like he would be paid to be next season

Sounds like Lakers made a call just like everyone else to see what theyd take.

We really don't have anything to offer them. They don't want or need any bigs and all of our guards that actually contribute probably weren't made available simply for Noel.

Yeah, if we landed Noel we'd have to be willing to cough up the max. Personally, i wouldn't necessarily be against that, though. He's a pretty good fit at the 5 and he fits the age profile of the young core.

 

Of course, as we owe our pick to Philly i think trading between the teams is dicey.

 

If Lakers really want Noel we could simply try to offer him the max in the summer.

As much as I like Noel, I would not want to max him out.

We're not going to make any moves because by the time Russell Clarkson and Randle are 30 they are going to be HOF worthy. Especially Russell
