From what I say this year, Hunter didn't do much for the Lakers any ways. And Jeffries isn't a top 15 talent. Jeffries is not better than Ming, Williams, Dunleavy, Gooden, Tskitshvilli, Wagner, Wilcox, Woods, Stoudemire, Curtis Borchardt, Melvin Ely, Rush, Hilario, Jeffries or Butler He didn't have near the college career Rush had. The Lakers did need another scorer because Shaq and Kobe can't always do everything by themselves. Rush is a very good three point shooter and the Lakers needed another one of those for Shaq to pass out to. Rush also was also a very good passer this year. I would take rush over jeffries any day.
