Mods once again erasing threads for no reason, hence, have to create it again:
Free Agency starts July 1st. So for the next 2 months, this will be an ongoing series to get to know some of the lesser sought after free agents. What better way to do that than to get that teams fans to comment....
So please tell us about the free agents strengths, weaknesses, intangibles, potential, injury history, possible contract demands, free agency ambitions, desire to stay with current team, likes, dislikes, pet peeves, and of course....sexual orientation.
The players we've looked at so far. Feel free to comment in any past threads:
his length makes him a good defender on the perimeter but he'll get bullied on the block by a lot of PF cuz of his frame. He can't finish around the rim. He's got great energy and effort on the offensive glass.
He's a pretty decent all-around player. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in height and athletic ability. I think he's better suited playing the SF position than the PF spot. He lacks a post game, but he can shoot from anywhere on the court at a relatively decent clip.
He is a pretty decent perimeter defender, too. He may not intimidate or stop anyone, but he does put in great effort, which is usually all that matters.
Earl Clark is the type of player who will have an amazing game one night and then be a no show for a few weeks. I think it may be the rotation problem Mike D'Antoni was presenting, but even when given a decent amount of play time, Clark would appear and disappear randomly.
Well he did pick up small nagging injuries before he disappeared in march like most of you say it.
but when he was 100% fit he was playing good bball in jan and fab the numbers should be somewhere around 13/10. (which is a lot if you are a Lakers bench player)
good athlete good rebounder decent shooter avg passer
versatile defender but inconsistent
and still developing, needs to be mentored and playtime is a must because the tools are there; has potential to be a serviceable forward in this league
+the Lakers transition defense was so much better when he was on the court (altho that prolly has more to do with Pau's defensive 'impact' on the court)
