Default Rashard Lewis waived....

Since he's already being paid $13.7mil, maybe he'd come to
the Lakers for cheap?

Would he be a good pickup for us?

For a short period, he was the most overpaid player in nba history when Orlando first signed him to the ludicrous deal. He couldn't hit the side of a barn for many games in a row. He lacked the heart and passion of somebody that I would consider a winner. He was simply an inconsistent streaky 3pt shooter. He looked good when he was teaming up with Ray Allen in Seattle, but since then he has been a borderline scrub with some occasional lights out shooting nights.

I don't trust him though. You can find better shooters for the cost. This guy is not much better than Vladimir Radmanovik. We saw where that went.

We got enough underachieving small forwards.

I liked him in his prime. I don't know how he can help us, especially if he cannot hit the three as consistently as he used to. We need pure shooters, and athletic guys.
