Good game against the midgets of D-League. He has moves but I'm not sure his game will translate well in the nba, no range and slow... Hope I'm wrong...


Zubac did well last season. No reason to expect he has regressed except for not getting to the floor and establishing the rhythm.
He should still get 5-7 minutes. We are losing anyway, might at least see if he can have some value going forward.


Zubac benefitted playing with DLO.

Zubac cannot play with ZO. Zu is a half court player, and ZO, at least at this point, is a pure transition player.

Zu has struggled everytime on the court with ZO; but hes had much better production when playing with Ennis and Clarkson.

Lopez is not exactly a transition player either. Hes been struggling a lot too.
Watching that Zu highlight hes moving much faster than Lopez and if he can make that 15-20 footer consistently then give the guy some burn.

Zu will get his turn soon! Lopez will not be back after this season IMO.

Zu's contact includes a team option for next year, so there's at least a chance he won't be back after this season either.

I like Zu, but he's an old-style center that isn't well matched to the run and gun style the Lakers are trying to implement. They might keep him around as a cheap 3rd string center, but there's probably an equal chance that they don't.

I like Zu but he has to improve and mesh with what we are running.
If Thomas Bryant continues to develop his game Zu could become trade fodder or a nice 3rd string center.

Zubac is a solid young center with a good post game, can stretch the floor, and has defensive upside as well.

There's no reason for people to act like he has no future in the NBA, unless their faith in him was easily broken by Summer League where his mind was on other more important things.

Fact of the matter is if we didn't have Lopez, and Zubac was starting and Bryant was backup 5(with Nance backup 4) I'd feel a lot better about us going forward.


Again, people get so fickle about Summer league and keep screaming for Bryant to start or get minutes from Lopez, they forget Zubac actually succeeds against NBA competition.
