I brought up the idea that the Lakers should pursue Bonzi Wells many times before. I talked about him when we were going after Al Harrington. It would allow us to bring VladRad off the bench in a Toni Kukoc role. Bonzi improves our defense and it will also allow Kobe to play a little 3 this year. Our lineup would become very versatile if we had him. We could go big or go small. It would be a surprise since the consensus has been that Bonzi would go to Miami, Charlotte, or Houston. Miami is real close to the luxury tax number, so they won't give him a big contract. Houston can give him the most money out of all the teams in contention. Charlotte has money, won't spend it, but has a ton of available playing time.
Bonzi made a huge mistake turning down Sacramento's offer. That's pretty much a given now.
