It's Official Its On The Lakers Website:
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 26, 2006 - The Los Angeles Lakers have requested waivers on guards Von Wafer and J.R. Pinnock, it was announced today.

Thats what should have happened. So now green can show what he really has to offer. I think if green stays he will show what he is all about. And he will be a great contibutor to the lakers real soon.

I kind of wanted to keep pinnock around because i liked his attitude but green has one year experience which really put him ahead of the pack. Wafer for me was a given that he was going to be cut. However, i think in the right system he could really thrive.

I think what you mean here is why does Kupcake love McKee over Pinnock or Wafer?

If so, I believe it would be a harder decision to waive McKee and his $2.5M salary. They may get something for him in a trade package during the season, so who knows.

Pinnock and Wafer are just prospects. They were not that good, so I am not sure why everyone is making a stink about them. I always said I would be surprised if they made the team at this phase of their career. I'd be surprised if they made any NBA team this year.
