Re: We still need a backup center IMO
Hill can play backup at C, Pau can too. In fact Gasol flourished as a center when him and Odom were getting major minutes.
The Lakers championship core was actually Gasol/Odom/Kobe + cast as Odom was the ultimate glue guy and fit well with literally any play on the court (at least when he was a Laker under the triangle, sigh).
Anyways do you want the Lakers to shell out even more than the 200+ mil they have to pay in the luxury tax?
I believe the tax before was a dollar per dollar one.. now it's double that? (2 dollars per 1)
