Washed up? You missed him in the playoffs?
Not a starter and had two great games out of 5 in a gentleman's sweep. Guards that don't shoot 3s aren't a hot commodity in the NBA these days.
Never said he was still starter material.....but for 15-20mpg off the bench? He can still play.
When you are talking about a former superstar in a 15-20 minute role, that is washed up to me.
Especially when he is not expected to leave Miami anyway.
Yes and no. To me it's about what he can bring in that 15-20 minutes and how many games he's available for.
Probably, but you just said you were looking for a defensive big, and Looney absolutely fits that mold. Wagner is definitely higher offensive upside, but Looney is already way better than Wagner will ever be on defense.
Yeah, I wouldn't assume they would pick him up, just saying I thought he would fit. There's just not a lot of reliable bigs on the Lakers that can help eat up some of the minutes to spare Lebron some of the wear and tear.
I think they are going to give McGee the starting position for 20-22mpg, Zubac back him up for 15-18mpog (develop hoim since he's showed flashes of potential), and play James as their stretch 5 for a few mpg in a small lineup.
I'd like the Lakers to add a designated shooter off the bench.
I would say regular season, that's a risky thing to do. In the playoffs it could be feasible.
I disagree. Len is very tyson chandler esque. He can rebound and play D. He can be valuable in situational situations. did i just say that lol
uhhhh did you look at hte roster ? lol
I doubt he sees much time as a rookie. Now, Wagner I can see getting some PT....
True. Wagner may see some action at the 5 with the leftover minutes.
There's only one roster spot left. At what position do you see available minutes for a shooter? I'd rather see another defender/rebounder at PF/C. That's one position that hasn't really been addressed, especially at PF/small ball C.
He can't defend in space. He is no more valuable that Zubac, who is also playing in the wrong era.
thats why i said situational coach. like mcgee on aldridge during the playoffs.
