Default AK47 wants to play for Clippers or Lakers

Wow this is amazing news. The player I want the most in free agency. This is from Twitter "sources".


"As per sources close to situation, Andrei Kirilenko will leave CSKA Moscow and try to sign a multi-year deal with Nets, Jazz or Los Angeles"

"Andrei Kirilenko will play with CSKA until he signs a contract in NBA. His dream is to live in LA and would play for Lakers and Clippers"

Would be a great addition to either Nets or Clippers. Not ideal for young Jazz and Lakers can't afford him.

Metta's my favorite player on that damn team. Anyhow, AK47 being a Laker isn't likely, but it'd be pretty great seeing him as a Clipper.

Also, Iggy.

Hey don't get me wrong I love Artest. He's my favorite Laker player as well. I just mean specifically the way Artest played last season was worse than how Kirilenko played . If Artest bounces back.. then yea AK47 is a bit redundant considering both do most of their work on the defensive end. I just know after Artest you guys bring in Walton... and AK47 would strengthen that up.

Like I said though Lakers don't even have the cap for a full MLE under new CBA terms. They would have to offer him 3 mill a year and I'm sure he wants at least 5-6 mill.

doesn't mean they would want him. Different motivation between Lakers and Clippers. Clippers are trying to win, Lakers are trying to win championships. Lakers need spacing right now and AK47 adds little of that. Also, he is a soft, whiny frontrunner.

But I hope he helps out the Clippers. I like watching that team and wouldn't mind seeing them do well.

We don't want Kirilenko anyways. I rather we just roll with a MWP/Barnes/Ebanks rotation.

I understand Lakers are shooting for bigger things right now . I also agree he would do less for the Lakers than the Clippers obviously. I just think under Mike Brown's defense first approach AK47 would help the Lakers a lot as well. His 3 point shot looks excellent lately too.

I'm hoping Ebanks gets more playing time this season. He seems to have potential. Barnes and the rest of the "killer B's" can go fvck off, after how much of a non-factor they were in the playoffs.

Adding AK, depending on his salary, would be an amazing move for Olshey. Granted, he doesn't add spacing, meaning Gordon and Mo need to be hitting shots and probably means more playing time for Kaman since he can space better than DJ as well. But, like I said, it ultimately comes down to the salary number.

Another 3 who can't shoot and plays defense. We have that in our lovable Ryan Gomes.

I personally think Tayshaun would be a great fit.
