Default kwame brown

We know this is his contract year and he's not going to be paid 9 mil anymore.

would you be willing to sign him back for 2-3 mil a year?

maybe a 1 or 2 yr deal, i dont think hs worth a long term deal. Plus we got gasol, bynum, turiaf rotation. Personally, id rather have mbenga for the nba minimum for a yr.

NOT A CHANCE, NOT FOR FREE!!

he is useless on offense....our playmaking falls apart when
he is in the game....there are hundreds of FAs that would fill
that role better including Mbenga....

Even if Kwame pays the Lakers 2-3 mil a year to play...we shouldn't take him. He flat out sucks!!

i would do it.
now, i see a weakness there - we do not have any big body there. Kweme was weak, but still he was usefull when guarding massive Cs and PFs.
But still he should not get more $ then Turiaff.

i think with time mbenga has a chance to be better then kwame (maybe he already is) and kwame has shown himself to be injury prone so i'd rather they keep mbenga and give him some time

ABSOLUTELY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Someone else is going to pick him up as a project player and will pay him more than that. Some other moronic team. We don't need the wretched refuse sitting on our bench taking up cap space.

I think we can do better in free agency for a backup center instead of Kwame. He has no offense, no hands, is injury prone, and has serious confidence issues. If Mihm can ever get healthy he'll be good for next year otherwise we'll find a more serviceable player in free agency.

well i agree with the fact that probably someone will pick him for some considerable $. it is a pure nonsense, but it is just the way it will be

Yep, I would much rather take a chance on developing Mbenga than deal with Kwame.

Once Mbenga learns he doesnt have to block every single shot, he'll make great improvement.....and not foul out in 5 min lol.

Mbenga is not only better than Kwame, but he also comes extremely cheap.

forget about Kwame. We're doing great.
