Isn't he having surgery? That's why they waived him.

No thanks. He's injured. Plus, the 10 man lineup we're currently running is working well. Don't (bleep) with it prematurely.

I'd do what the Pelicans did, and cut Bilbo Huertas and sign Archie Goodwin. Heck, I'll take Anthony Brown back. Now that Luke realized he doesn't need to use Heurtas or Calderon. Heck, cut Huertas and bring back Yi.

There is a reason that he bounces from team to team. He's got a bad attitude. This Lakers team has great chemistry, you don't want to bring a guy like Lance into that.

I didn't want that sucka when he was healthy, I damn sure don't want him now. The Lakers bench is fine and the teams chemistry and great, we don't need a well known knuckle head screwing things up.

What if ... Brian Shaw was the secret the whole time that reached Lance in the first place?

Yup. He may literally be the worst possible player we could add to our roster in the NBA with his poor play and cancerous attitude.

If anything, I would've loved for us to target Nerlens Noel who should most certainly be out of PHI by the trade deadline via trade... but our team chemistry just appears to be way too strong right now to even consider making any changes to the roster. Even a deal like Calder˛n + Zubac + draft pick (i.e., guys that aren't necessarily in the current rotation) would be tempting, but I'd still be very hesitant as much as I'd love to have Noel on this team. I mean just imagine a potential closeout lineup of Russell-Clarkson-Ingram-Randle-Noel

I like zubac's length enough that I'd rather keep him over noel (considering also the other things zubac brings, while noel doesn't bring anything else)


as for stephenson... lol no

How are Noel's hands and decision making?

Because of his name? He hasn't been anything special since his last year in Indiana. He's a cancer and he's hurt. He's been going from team to team. No way, no how!

We might as well have kept Anthony Brown if this idea is being thrown around.

No way. We have no use for him and the team is playing great. Don't want anything that could disturb the chemistry.
