so, what is the "correct way" to utilize Trez on this team?

it just seems his life would be a lot easier if he had an outside shot at the 4. only play small ball 5 under limited circumstances. kind of like how we used keif last year.

Is any team paying him more than 4-5m a year?

Know I'm in the minority, but I like Montrell. I like his energy, his passion, and his ability to score low. He was misplaced at center, and then he wasn't even utilized. Montrell is a perfect example of how Vogel mismanaged the offense this year.

Hope he comes back.

Offensively...the best way to utilize Trezz is on constant Pick&Roll plays (just like you saw between him and Lou Williams on the Clippers, that was instant offense and very efficient off the bench)

Defensively... you learn to live with his deficiencies and it would be match-up/situational driven (ala not being on the floor against someone like Jokic or Ayton, for instance)

I'm with you on this... Trezz is a Pick&Roll monster, he needed someone on the Lakers to have that Pn'R chemistry he had with Lou Williams on the Clippers.

You saw glimpses of that when both him and THT were on the floor together, but it just didn't evolve much. I thought it would have happened with Dennis, but him being a poor passer negated that

Backup 5 with a center like Gasol starting.. like we were doing and were the best team in the league.

OR if we had Drummond starting, Gasol as backup 5 and Harrell at backup 4. The most obvious thing.. that Vogel refused to do.

Some of Montrezl’s responses in his interview were a little odd. With him being nearly unplayable near the end, I’d have to think it’s mutual that he won’t be coming back.

Harrell seems to have a decent shooting stroke for some Mid range shots. It’s criminal how he has not stretched his range. Makes him a $5m or less player as a result.

People equate Trezz's low post skills on offense with what he should play at defense. But that makes no sense. He's shorter, and can't jump as high as Kuzma. Don't think Trezz works at the C position because he has no reliable jump shot.

Seems like such a great guy. Really wish it would have worked out. I would put the blame on the team more so than him. Just my opinion.

Zero chance he exercises his player option. I think he would even consider taking less money to find himself in a better situation where he gets minutes and is given a role. He had no chance to succeed in Vogel's system.

Good riddance man. Just get rid of all these self delusional, low bball iq players.

Not a surprise we kept falling in the standings and got bounced in the 1st round.

Get rid of the losing players. FOH with their empty stats, me me me crap. You aren’t a (bleep) star.
