I do admit, for selfish reasons I wish they could have pursued Beasley, and taken that very good deal. But its an issue of money. They already pay more taxes than anyone else in the league, and they aren't even championship level lol. I understand your frustrations though.

If only there hadn't been bad contracts in the past. Then again they weren't always "bad" contracts. Walton had an amazing contract year, which we're still paying for....and I mean that in a bad way. Artest also had some great crucial moments which helped us win the championship.

You look at those guys and you remember these good times, but then you look at them now and you kinda wanna

Walton had a good contract year......not anything special. Name another player of his type.....non star, who the Lakers gave that length of contract at that type of dollars (Relative to the times). I cannot remember one.
For those dollars his contract should've been 3 years maximum......there was no demand for him on the open market to warrant that contract.
Phil is to blame 100% he said he thinks of Luke as his son.

If we don't trade those picks to someone they will be wasted by our drinking buddies,horse racing scouting staff.

Yes but the lakers wanted to give up more salary in that deal. To add more salary on our already highest pay roll, don't you think that would restrict us even more in the future?

I mean, I agree about the picks, because this year's draft does not look that deep to be honest. I haven't heard of many great names. I don't mind losing both picks seeing that they are late. But should the lakers honestly have to give up more money?

I don't see that it is worth it.

I don't like minnesota right now. First they want Pau for anyone other than Kevin Love, and Rubio. Now they wanna give up beasley for not only our two most attractive picks, but then act so special by saying "hey, we don't want any of your bad contracts in return". They aren't good business people. They don't seem to negotiate well. Im starting to notice a trend with them if you get me.

Yeah I completely blame Phil for that. The thing is Walton's injuries didn't start becoming serious until after that new contract. So the lakers noticed him improving slightly, then he broke out with that contract year. Became our legit third option. Then in the playoffs he helped steal the ball from Nash in what led to us going up 3-1 on the suns, only to lose 3 in a row afterwards, but you get what I mean. He was showing signs of "greatness" as a role player such as Derek in his old days, or Horry.

His contract was too long. I've never seen a role player get renewed to anything longer than 3 years to be honest with you. Sasha's contract wasn't so bad seeing it was only 3 years. I think the lakers (mitch) learned from that mistake with Walton and only gave Sasha 3 years because of that. Thats just my opinion.

Its clear that the lakers have one goal in mind. They will NOT add more money to their payroll

The sooner people realize this, then we can relax and stop screaming every time a rumor comes out.

Is Beasley worth 2 first round picks and 13 million per year?

No.

Raymond Sessions is worth 1 first round pick though and 8 mill per year (salary doubled since we are over the cap).

I think the Lakers are waiting for a bigger and better deal. They don't want to rush on some minor deal and lose a chip for a bigger deal they could have pulled off later. It's not like Cavs are desperate to trade Sessions.. We can always get him on the trade deadline day if we want him then.
