    The one guy I keep thinking about, especially if LAL is happy tanking this season and wants to clear as much salary as possible for the offseason, is Nick Young. He's making $1.12M this season, with a $1.23M player option for next season (might not use it, if he feels he can sign for more after a decent season this year). He'd be a great scoring option off the bench, especially given the lack of wing depth on the roster.

    The Raps could use TPE or offer somebody like Stone/Buycks, perhaps along with OKC's 2014 2nd round pick.
    I really dislike Nick Young, but you are right, he could fill that role. I don't trust Young to play intelligent ball and since team chemistry is something working in our favor, he is definitely a risky choice.

    Personally, I'd rather keep Patterson on the bench and re-assess via draft and free agency.

    I was thinking more as a cheap, short-term fix, that might not cost too much in trade. I expect he'll opt-out after this season, regardless where he finishes it - slightly more than $1M for a proven gunner off the bench is pretty good and shouldn't come with any further expectations.

    I'm interested in this Idea. Pick n Pop is more affective when you have a more quicker PG(KLow) drawing attention. It's also more of a easier pass for Lowry to make. I feel like when he does a pick an roll all the size length cloud his vision. Especially since his only 6 foot tall.

    That fact PATMAN is on the floor with JV it makes it easier to run pick and roll with JV

    Example
    At the 0:10 mark look how Lowry and JV have half of the court.

    I'm still not sold on it. I would like to see it for one more game. I feel that Amir should have the night off tomorrow too. That would give him a full week to recover. So his fresh to finish the season.

    Nick young is the leading scorer for the Lakers at 17 pts a game! I highly doubt their going to trade him for a second round pick or scraps

    Yeah. Postman Pat seems to be the stretch 4 that we need. He's like a poor man's Chris Bosh or a more disciplined version of Bargs. He's automatic midrange, so it helps in the spacing allowing Demar and Lowry to drive inside, as well as benefiting Jonas inside.

    I like Amir to be the big who could sub in for Jonas when he gets into foul trouble, and to be the energizer off the bench. He and Grevis could develop the pick-and-roll tandem like Calderon did.

    Nick Young definitely fits that 6th man, chucker profile. Good call. BTW, what is it with USC Trojans producing similar type of guys recently (DD, Mayo, Young)?

    2 Pat easily has the smoothest jumpshot of any bigman in the league hands down. Its just so quick and fluid with a perfect arc

    Don't forget Ryan Anderson. Dude can stroke it.

    Even Channing Frye is in the convo...pretty much a better version of 2Patt

    LaMarcus Aldridge anyone?

    http://grantland.com/features/portla...rcus-aldridge/

    Could 2Pat's value be similar to LA's in a couple of years?

    Pattman has more range than LA tbh.

    But LA has a completely dominant advantage in creating his own shot, better mid ranged shooter, he has a deadly post game. They aren't even in the same league.

    I'm a fan of Psycho T.

    Toughness and energy.

    Raps don't beat Pellies without him, imo.

    I like Tyler as well but he's one of the best assets we have. Small contract, only guaranteed for $1M next season. Can help immediately and would be great for the playoffs.

    OKC could use him for the playoffs.. Who wouldn't love toughness?

    OKC also has a TPE large enough to acquire him. I'd give him up for Dallas' 2014 first. They can throw in Perry Jones to avoid luxury tax this year.

    I remember distinctly hearing that Bosh lobbied with BC for LA before that draft. They were good friends (both from Texas) and off season training partners. We all know how that turned out. He has become a very consistent/good player. I dare say that on the matter of who is the big man with the best shot it is still Dirk imo. His range is all over the place as well as all the big shots he has made in his career. To even compare PP with someone like him is a travesty ...or he misremembered.

    Yup. To make this particular Raps bench work (even with 2Pat in there) you need at a classic sixth man, high-usage, gunner-type of wing, e.g. Jamal Crawford, Ben Gordon, OJ Mayo, etc ..... Like you said, those type of guys are usually available.
    Demar derozan?
