Really hoping Hart earns/ gets steady run, even at 8-10 minutes a game.

Hart reminds me a lot of Arron Afflalo when he came out of UCLA - team leader, smart player, solid outside shooter, go-to defender, good but not freakish athleticism, hard worker. We could really benefit from having Hart as both Clarkson insurance and a long-term, reasonably-priced yet still productive rotation guy.


I'd already slot Hart in over JC on the depth chart due to the fact that Hart will actually be willing to play defense.

I hope we can find a way to move JC's contract this year


I'm worried that the only way we can move JC's contract is to attach Randle to it. I figure if Randle can give us 16 and 9 with improved D before the ASB, then he can be a factor in next summer's plans. At least a 16 and 9 young workhorse can net us a mid-level 1st round pick back, but I'd hate to dump a potential athletic freak like Randle just to dump Clarkson.

OK, for Deng it might be necessary because Deng's contract is significantly higher, but still...


You wonít get much value for a player who can sign an offer sheet after the season. Teams wonít want to risk overpaying or him walking. Adding a player on a rookie deal with JC makes more sense.

Really like Hartís game. He has a clean well rounded game. Doesnít make too many mistakes, can finish, can shoot and play defense. A solid rotation player for any team.

Hart can play both ends - There is zero reason to play JC ahead of him IMO.

Clarkson looks like a d-leaguer. Hart has good fundamentals and has a better shot.

If he keeps it up, Clarkson is a goner, Clarkson was a solid pick but his time here is ovvaaa, dude doesn't look like he's had much Improvement and does the same things that we saw the last 3 years.

Hart played against the bottom of Denver's lineup, so it's hard to compare.

That said - Josh did something very unusual for anyone in a Laker uniform these days not named Kyle Kuzma - he hit his open shots. Also - I thought he played solid defense, consistent with his reputation from Villanova's title team.

I really hope Hart does get more playing time, and that he manages to knock our crappy defender '6th man of the year' down a notch in the guard pecking order. If he plays to his potential we could use another smart defender who nails shots within the offense if he's open.

Lonzo, KCP, BI, Randle, Lopez prolly got the starting lineup on lock to start the season. But Hart could sneak in there for the first couple of games KCP is out.

He said he thinks he can make a similar impact to Kuzma. And it wasn't a yes/no question.. I like the confidence

Hart plays both ends and can hit threes. Ennis seems a very capable backup point guard that can pass.

Clarkson needs to find his shot, and soon.

Dang!, Hart is looking swoll out there. Those injuries he's had meant more time in the weight room. He could be our Draymond. Maybe he could be best suited as backup SF along with Bogut, Kuzma,Ennis,Clarkson.

Hart does look good. He should, he is 22! I would be nice to get some production from him. He could be our new Nwaba with a better shot.

I donít see how Hart and Brown are similar, Brown was only known as a 3pt shooter, and he wasnít good at it.... Hart reminds me more of Shannon Brown but with D.

And with at least 1/10th of the athleticism.

No doubt. Shannon Brown was a good athlete

Nice game by Hart. Looking like Magic Rob had a great draft.

Seemed like he fit right in after missing all that time which was very impressive.

Is he a potential starter next year? Decent 2 way skills and his passing was a surprise.

Agreed on both. 4 year player that seems to have gotten all the value he could from the experience and it's already showing.
