Has anyone seen rumors on Drummond and where he is going? I haven’t heard a peep.
Which worries me. It makes me think the Lakers have already wrapped it up...which might mean full MLE...which means we can't retain Caruso.
That would literally be awful. Instead of pairing Russell Westbrook a pedal to the metal player who can't shoot with a smart defensive minded partner the Lakers will play him with a slow plodder who also can't shoot
I wouldn’t call him a slow plodder, especially if he drops about 20 lbs to get back more of his athleticism, but if retaining him at more than the taxpayer MLE costs us Caruso it Would be Awful. Doubly and insultingly awful if he doesn’t drop the weight and get his a** into the shape it should be for the very prime of his career.
Retaining Drummond at anything more than the minimum would be terrible
Retaining Drummond at all would sour me on this upcoming season.
losing caruso to keep this useless sack of sh** would be incredibly stupid
Dwight is rumored to want to return, so…
sorry have to be that guy .... :Carusolink:
We don’t need Drummond. I was ok keeping him before if the money wasn’t crazy but at this point let him go. He’s not a good fit and we have much greater needs at this time than a slow center with bad hands and no shot. We have to shore up the empty wing spots/shooters and defenders.
Bring back Damian Jones too for vet minimum. He's a plus impact player even if he is a little skinny, both sides of the ball per this team's needs. Vogel can be smart and not overmatch him.
I liked Jones in his short stint here. Honestly he was a better fit than Drummond.
Ya, I doubt they give Drummond the MLE. Go get Dwight and we are set with bigs with Morc and Howard. That's an easy call.
OX definitely off his game today, that's 2 of em.
Thats on purpose. Not a typo.
I figured, but why? Is it because he’s round like an O? So he’s not Marc, he’s Morc, as in there’s “mor”e of him?
