Kings get owned with Lukes contract. I dont see why they trade a longer contract for a pretty solid pg. Makes no sense for them.

Seems like they have a jamlog of mostly natural SFs above. Williams is the only guy I could see playing some 2 (definitely not 4).

Our line up to end games last season was usually:

Devin
Dooling
Vince
Simmons
Brook


Sometimes replace Dooling with Hayes depending on the match up. Frank likes to space the floor so that Devin and Vince can go towards the basket. If the help came, Hayes, Dooling, or Simmons would be posted in the corner for the open J. Simmons also is rather big to guard a lot of east coast 4s. Obviously its not optimal, but he has a big strong base to not get pushed over and rather pesky hands.

Essentially though, Frank's offense relies a lot of making corner 3s. The more we made, the more we were likely to win the game.


As far as Hassel goes, he was not even useful last season. He played some spot defense, but he's a bench player. Morrison would have a chance to crack the rotation cause of his ability to shoot the ball. As long as you can play off-ball you can thrive in the system Frank built. Hassell has no offense off ball so he was only used for defense in situations. But overall negligible.

Very good point.

I just cant see the Lakers taking on 24 million dollars more in contracts. The Lakers dont need to make any moves at all if you look at it.

Fisher
Artest
Kobe
Gasol
Bynum

Throw Odom in there to give Gasol or Bynum a break...theyre pretty deep at the guard to. I dont see any reason for them to make a move. It worked last year. This year its going to be better.

It is so funny... people are dead set on getting rid of Luke W. I just do not see it. He is a valuable asset to us, and probably more valuable to us than other teams.

Lakers wouldn't do this trade. First Udrih isn't a PG i want on the Lakers. I'm not convinced he would be a good fit on the Lakers due to his questionable 3 point shooting and defense. Plus, the Lakers want to keep Morrisons expirer for salary reasons or maybe to resign him to a smaller contract.

Battie isn't that much better than Powell, and he makes 6mil less. The Lakers don't have any minutes for him anyways with Gasol/Odom/Bynum in the frontcourt.

Walton is a solid backup SF. He Can pass, shoot, and has a decent post game. He has good chemistry with the team, and LA wouldn't have a backup SF. La is keeping Walton.
