    I like this signing a lot.. Especially for the $$.
    Can someone with more understanding of the CBA please explain the advantages of using the BAE here..?
    Does this not count against our Cap, etc..?

    Really slots in nicely into our team and arranges the forward spots a lot better:

    Prince / Rui
    Lebron / Vando

    Just missing a good backup big now.

    Long gone are the awkward Russ and Bev interviews.

    He can’t really shoot, i cant forget all his bricks when we played minny last year. But still, he’s a wing, and he’s a laker. Can’t get too mad for the price. Welcome to the Lakers!

    Also worth noting, he's played with DLO and Vando. Could help with early chemistry.

    Wow, great signing! Another guy with size, who can score, play some defense… I am very happy with this. He’s what… 28-29? Really great job here andd I like the contract too.

    Vando insurance when if teams play off of him. Lakers needed an in between wing in size next to Rui and Reeves who could stay in the floor and Prince fits the bill.

    Stocking up on guys who can stay on the floor in the playoffs

    Always nice to be able to pluck players from our developmental teams.

    several of us wanted prince with the tpmle last year, but he signed back with minny prior to FA opening.

    i agree that this was a big value pickup.
