@LakerFilmRoom
No. It's been a few years since Bradley's played well & I think he's a vet min signing at best. We're basically hoping he gets back to the player he was in 2015-16 in 2019-20. And I hope this doesn't take us out of the running for Iggy. Wish I could like this signing but I don't.


Tldr: we wasted our Room MLE. Becoming decreasingly confident in this "Rob is a genius" rumor.

These signings kind of remind me of how the Pacers built their teams. Solid role players around PG. The big difference is we're building solid role players around 2 superstars. I think Vogel will be a good fit for team that's being built for him.

Disagree. I love the 2year deals for everyone. Players on their last year stop caring much about their team and get ready for their next contract after the all star break.

It’s clear Rob was sorting the FA list by these categories. Most of the new signings are good wide open shooters and good at C&S. Type of role players Bron thrives with

I agree. Players can become selfish, start jacking shots, team chemistry can become unhinged, etc. I like the 2 year deals, players feel vested.

Lakers needed another perimeter defender and someone who can shoot the 3.

If he can do anything else, then that's only a plus for the Lakers.

Watch what Avery Bradley did with the Grizz at the end of the season and tell me he’s washed up. only 28 years old. 16 ppg, 4 ast, 46/38/92. a lot of pick and roll action.
Love this pick up. start him and Green in the back court and we are fine.

Literally the only PG on the roster than can do both.

He's our guy.

1. I know he's discarding the Memphis sample size because it was small.
2. I know he's ignoring the Doc Rivers affect

Caruso is better on both ends. Better three point shooting, better steal and block rate.

Concerned he's gonna get buried behind all guys coasting on their reputations from 3 years ago.

Many people say Bradley is washed but as long as he can play some good D and hit a couple shots, he's a useful pick up.

Cousins | McGee
Davis | Kuzma | Dudley
LeBron | KCP
Green | Bradley | THT
Cook | Caruso | Rondo

When listing it out like that, I really have NO idea who's getting mins in back up roles but the versatility is crazy.

Still need Iggy and then hopefully Korver. If those 2 find their way here and then we've got the bench shooter we lack as well as the elite (maybe) defender that can play 4 positions.

Rondo hasn't signed. Does this mean we sign AB instead and then sign Iggy Stardust?

What's the Doc Rivers effect? Why didn't it hurt Patrick Beverly?

And why wasn't he good in Detroit?

Absolutely not.

But I like the rotation.

Bradley will start.

i have too stress that all these 2 year contracts at different values make great trade tools for a team lacking trade value.

How many times have we seen players get "overpaid" only to be the key in a trade to make salaries work.

Teams love expiring contracts.
