Lakers won, but they were tested. I think that this could possibly one of the bigger drafts they've had in a while. As much as I like Devean George, I know he's gone. Money talks just like Tyronn Lue before him. Jerry West has been hot on his trail. Lindsey Hunter has stated that he would most likely opt out to go to a team that could offer him a bigger role. Samaki Walker has no hands what so ever. He's got a year left on his deal, whether he'll be re-signed is yet to be seen. Slava Medvedenko won't get big bucks and when he's on the court, he is pretty active and does some good things. Look for him to be re-signed by the Lakeshow. Now that leaves holes at 6th man, point guard, and a big guy to help out the diesel. Here are some possibilities to look for. The Lakers want to trade up to get Qynetl Woods, lets say that doesn't happen. They have the 27th pick. There is gonna be some pretty good players there. They have no second round pick. Some guys to take into consideration: Smush Parker, Carlos Boozer, and Ryan Humphrey...maybe Lenny Cooke, but that's a bit high considering all of his problems that he's had. Now Humphrey brings athleticism and is an all around good ball player. Boozer could help out alot with the boards, but won't shoot like Horry. The guy i'm most intrigued with is Smush Parker. He's a big guard who can run the team. I'd gladly take Frank Williams ahead of him, he'd be a perfect fit, but he won't fall that far. Of these 3 guys Humphrey, Boozer, Parker who do u think would fit in best??? Do you think the Lakers will go in a different direction altogether, if so who???
