cmd34 said:I think Vlade's biggest value to us is his contract next season. Last year contract players are a hot commodity in the NBA and we need to make deals since we can't replace his contract value in free agency. We can trade Vlade for a equal contract player with 2-years left on his contract. That way it would expire when Brian Grant's does when we will make our supposed run at Amare or Yao.
You're talking about doing a S&T deal with the Cavs for Big Z, where he'd only get $7M a year? Cleveland will be willing to pay him a million or so more than that to keep him themselves. We have basically a 0% chance of getting Ilgauskas.Jamel Irief said:He gives away way too many offensive boards and doesn't protect the rim... yet if his body is still willing he would make the Lakers one of the best offensive teams in the league.
Personally I think the Lakers should bring him back because his contract packaged with George and Atkins might be able to get us a disgruntled vetern superstar or maybe sign someone and take back bad contracts in a sign and trade. Something like signing big z for about 7 mil a year and taking on Snows contract for George, Vlade and Atkins.
Not to mention that even if they don't trade him he's a very good 20 minute a game player and a great teammate.
I betcha if Shaq played the whole season with The Lakers, they would be in the playoff spot too.LJD said:I think if we had Vlade the whole season, we would have a playoff spot. He is a great passer and while he has looked out of shape for the last couple of games, but he still helps our offense more then Chris Mihm ever did. If he had played the whole season I think he would be in better shape right now and contributing more scoring, along with setting up teammates.
