apparently they're looking to "reduce its luxury tax hit for next season"

That really irritates me. With Miami on the horizon, Lakers shouldn't be thinking about saving all that much. They would easily earn it back in the playoffs and Finals especially.

good luck to Delonte, and his new team though.
any time you can add a potential starter to the bench, it is a great addition imo.

Its just Sasha. I thought he was very valuable when hes knocking down his 3's.

Maybe he gets better shooting this season?

Thats the way sports fans are. Im sure Bengals fans probably were ripping TO until he joined them, now all of a sudden TO & 85 are "the best WR duo in the league".

no the rumor was/has been misconstrued or changed since the original news blurb/rumor was posted..

what the lakers wanted was sasha for delonte in a trade so they (the lakers) could do exactly what the timberwolves have done, and that's waive him and drop a few million off the payroll... it was never about the lakers actually wanting west on the team


and that was just a rumor at best

Hell, the rest of the Cleveland roster might as well hightail off to Miami.

Since Flynn is injured and Session is gone, The Wolves could use a guy like Delonte West

Flynn (injured), Ridnour, Telfair (maybe they'll trade him AGAIN), The myth called Rubio (I don't know if he really exist ). These ain't enough for Kahn and Captain Kurt

Stop talking out of your ass. Lakers fans never said that. It's been said for quite some time that West is the perfect Fisher replacement.

I still don't know how I feel about West in a Lakers uniform, though. Too many nutcases on one team scares me.

I would just like to point out the disparity in the league via this post. Most small market teams can't afford to ever go into the luxury tax. Here you have an annoyed Lakers fan because they want to shave 11 million from their payroll, dropping their cap hit to...about 87 million dollars. On a 58 million dollar cap.
