Bazemore turned down more money and years (two) from the Warriors, sources say, but believes he will have a bigger role and opportunity to win a championship with the Lakers. Bazemore is betting on himself.

Apparently, the GSW offered Bazemore 2 years with more money per year.

Great another one who despised us before and made us pulling the trigger for Deng. Hopefully just a vet minimum.

I don't understand the reaction?!?!

This is one hellava pick up if its vet min.
He is not a defensive demon that AC is but he provides a high end energy on
defensive end that we desperately need while shooting 41% from 3s with good volume. He is shooting something like 45% when its wipe open I think.
A bit foul prone for my liking, but I absolutely like this signing at vet min.

This shows that Rob isn't going 180 on the defensive identity of Lakers but is
looking for a healthy compromise of defense with star power & shooting.

High energy defender and respectable from deep. I like it

Not sure if he should have a 'significant role', though

KB was one of my main hopefuls for minimum wagers on the team. We desperately need wings and he has both the size and defensive energy to be effective. His shooting is just OK, but we could do a LOT worse for minimum wage.

Welcome back Bazemore!!!

I wonder how many former Lakers have been called and offered the minimum, and how many of them would counter and ask for (part of) the tax payer MLE.

The cap space league-wide for Dennis Schröder is drying which is good for the Lakers' hope of S&T.

Baze was quite mediocre last season if memory serves. I don't recall him bringing anything in particular to the Warriors party (I watch Warrior games #Klaythiest). And he's another player I'm just "meh" on, personally. LeSigh...

Did he?! Wow. I remember him being irrelevant. Well, if he was shooting like that on GSW I hope it continues here and he doesn't suddenly contract LakersShooting-itis

Again, moving away from LG posters. Kent Bazemore reviews in 2020 and 2021:

2021:
https://www.mercurynews.com/2021/06/19/warriors-report-cards-kent-bazemore-a-great-teammate-who-may-not-be-a-long-term-fit/

"During the season, he helped lineups click into place, shooting a career-high 40.8% from 3-point range and playing relentless defense. On April 10, he replaced Kelly Oubre Jr. in the starting lineup for his final 17 games, slotting in at guard next to Stephen Curry."

2020:
https://www.sactownroyalty.com/2020/4/20/21228465/kings-progress-report-kent-bazemore-trade-portland-trail-blazers-trade

In sum:
Physical guard, does gamble, plays aggressive. Can be foul prone.

Put another way, I'm not sensing any sort of washed up theme.

Ok.

I swear I do not remember Baze doing anything remarkable but my bad Baze.

He's not a big name. I'm seeing lots of narratives posted by LGers about how the new additions are done. Now, I did not watch those players much during the season, but relying on some of the sources posted by folks who watched their teams and saw them all the time, seems to me these guys fill a need.

If Coach Kerr is choosing to start him over LG fave "Ouuuubreee"...that says lot.
