Hopefully I won't have to hear this overrated guy's name pop up here again.

Better defender than KCP.


Stop.

And even if so, he plays offense like Andre Robinson. He's gone for a good reason.

If giving KCP a round-numbered payday for the one season he's a Laker is a good reason, cool.

Why don't you stop trashing on the dude and posters who supported him in his brief time here?

I really don't get your dislike for this guy. He was the teams best defender and a high percentage shooter. We that liked him weren't deluding ourselves with his offensive capabilities, we liked his hustle , character and hard work. Go troll elsewhere now, he's gone.

No kidding. Apparently negativity rules are quite limited around here.

Congratulations David. I guess. Bulls are ace soup.

I'd really like an explanation for this, though obviously one is not due. Was it a personal move based on recent acquisitions ? Or a gamble to facilitate future cap moves?

What a bummer. I was looking forward to see that 10-15 minutes of hell but I guess Bulls likes him too.

I like what he brings and for a small cost, but it is what it is. Good luck in Chicago!

Overrated?

I can see the homerism is prevalent around here but no one thought him for a star. Just an athletic energy guy at the end of our bench who can attack the rim and play good defense.

I expected him to improve his 3 pt shot, but in the summer league, all he was doing was dunking. Woulda been nice to see if he could spot up, I believe he took one & missed, not coming back IMO we need another guard...

Ball, Pope, Clarkson & Hart, that's it!!!

Seems like you dont put much value on defense sir.....

You should really revisit that evaluation

We needed a defensive specialist like Artest. Shooting not required as long as can play physical, shut down defense. I felt Nwaba could be that guy but its all irrelevant now.

And when he puts up career highs vs us then it will be for a good reason too.

I like him, but its not a huge loss. Good luck to him in Chicago.

Bulls have a lot of guards already: Dunn, Grant, Holiday, LaVine, Morrow, Payne, valentine, and Wade.

Hate that the Bulls picked him up, he's an excellent defender and one of the best finishers at the rim in the league. Wish him all the best in Chicago

We needed the cap space to offer KCP $18 mil. We only had $17.3.

Nice end of the bench guy but he seemed to have a fairly low ceiling to me.

On top of that, if reports were to be believed it was also to potentially lock up Nwaba to a friendly 2 year deal AND get an extra year on Thomas Bryant's rookie contract. Look, I liked Nwaba, but I'd drive him to the airport if I knew we had to sacrifice him for KPC. It's not like the Lakers didn't like him. They just liked having KPC on the roster and an extra year on TB's contract rookie deal more than the chance of losing Nwaba and so do I.

Bummer. I guess we are crowded now at SG now with Pope/Clarkson/Hart so I understand the move. Good luck in Chicago man.

Maybe we should've offered KCP $17.3M then.

To save Nwaba? Nahhh. He was just filler anyway, not a long term piece.
