Default Thoughts on Kareem Rush

Phil leaped to his defense after Charlotte released him.

Do you want Cupcake to bring Rush back? How much would you pay him?

I think he'll be a good bench player for us. At this point, he's better than Devean George. He's younger, healthier, can hit the three, and can start on occasion.

I wouldn't give him the full MLE. A few million below that maybe. I'm worried that other teams may bid on him and drive his price up.

I think Kareem is best suited as a bench player who gets 10 minutes, firing 4 threes and hitting 1 or 2 of them per game, not much more than that

Of course, maybe he's improved, over the last few months, working hard or something

I love Kareem. Yes, he could be a pretty good replacement for George. Either him or Profit. I like both of them. It's a win win situation for us IMO.
Rush or Profit will make us a lot stronger. Rush is a smooth shooter while Profit is a solid all around player. Both of them can be good bench players for us.

Agreed, I'd sign both of them. Rush can score pretty well while Profit is a solid all around player. We need a replacement for Geogre and both can be that.
They bring different things to the table and there's enough room for both of them IMO.

a double Bonus. Rush played two years with us and knows the triangle.

Laron profit knows the triangle too. he ran it as a PG alot with the lakers last year until we waived him due to injury.

we sign profit, rush, and Banks. Banks can be the only guy who needs to learn but thats Ok....if smush can do it, so can banks.

Laron's injury worries me a little.
Rush is an upgrade over Devean George at this point. Throw in Profit's all around skills and Banks ability, it's an upgrade over what we have.

Also, I'm not ready to give up on Vujacic. He could be a key bench contributor next season.

As long as Rush comes cheap, I am all for bringing him back.

We could use help in the backcourt. Get rid of Mckie and Jim Jackson. Bring in Rush and keep Profit. Much better.

Thumbs up Thoughts on Kareem Rush

Kareem Rush adds an element off the bench we did not have this year, which is a back up for Kobe. By adding Kareem phil has a legitamate scorer off the bench and a good shooter.

p.s. don't forget that 6 for 7 shooting performance against the t'wolves two years ago clinching the finals.

Currently, I don't see him getting much more than that. Maybe a team like Orlando can make him an offer. Houston could use him. But none of them or any other possible teams will give him a huge portion of their MLE. If the Lakers offered him 1.7 million, he should take it.

The way Charlotte let him go at the end of last year will hurt him. He may have to take a pay cut because no one will be willing to give him a pay raise.

Los Angeles is the best place for him.
