For the MLE. Not sure about that.
I did want him back from the draft.
He’s are starting SG. But his three point shooting went downs
And of course a one year deal still allows for Kyrie :

He has some upside and is athletic - not sure about his defense but has potential

Clearly Rob is still on the cap space plan for next year

Awful signing.

But when you refuse to take money on next season because your owner wants to avoid the repeaters tax, this is what you get.

It's called the Los Angeles Klutch NBA team, which means it's an unbalanced team just like last year. 10 guards and no defense.

That’s and leaving cap space for Kyire. But unfortunate.

Wow. I hope the scouts know something, but the message I get from this is that no one else was interested in taking our money. Walker doesn't shoot that well, but he makes up for it by being a poor defender. He's young, and he can play the wing, but the Spurs cast him off. Yikes.

Was hoping to use that money on a 3&D wing.

Lonnie Walker has only had one season where he shot below average from three.

Must have seen the old highlights of dude when he had the elevator ‘fro and thought they finally found lengf.

Another Klutch klient stopgap. No imagination and I’m not sure if this is Rich eating off Rob’s poor negotiating skills or Rich taking pity on Rob and throwing him a bone.

Highlights

His role will likely be similar to Monk's.

1st of all, his hair was his way of coping will the trauma of the physical/mental/sexual abuse he suffered as a child and the only thing he felt in control of and only cut it when he felt he was there as far as his mental health went for coping.

Second of all, he has a 6'10 wingspan.

Still need wings, but Lonnie Walker will help.

I don't like it at all. He can't hit shots from the outside, and according to AH above, he's a poor defender.

The Lakers better have a trade lined up for a proven two-way wing who has length.
