Team definitely not trying to rebuild. Trying to become greatest treadmill 10 seed team in NBA history. How is this beneficial to the growth of Julius Randle to sign a bunch of bigs?

ESPN has learned that the Los Angeles Lakers have won the amnesty auction with the highest bid for Boozer
You donít even know what you are talking about most of the time. Trying now to rebuild because we have a bunch of 1 year contracts and picked up a 1st round pick that we didnít have for next year for taking on Linís 1 year deal. They drafted a player at 7 and didnít feel anyone outside of the big FAís is worth a long term investment. They will have between 20 to 30 million to try again next year, and about $30 million in 2016.
I'm not saying the Lakers suck.. I'm more saying the words vs actions don't align. Fans seem to think team is rebuilding/trying to suck... but the front office keeps trying to sign players that seem to be more of a win now mode vets.
I know that. Still bigs that will likely get more minutes than him, slowing his development. Which is what I meant by being "behind".
Minutes at the 4 will be shared by Boozer and Randle. Minutes at the 5 will be distributed by Hill and Davis. Randle can still get anywhere between 20-30 minutes a game especially with Boozer not as good as he used to be.
Further this provides more mentors for Randle, he needs to learn to develop his mid range jumper as a big man, and Boozer can definitely teach him that, as long as Randle is willing to put in the work.
