Nah, Kevin's extension kicks in this year. I believe he is making roughly $9 million this season. Well, good news that we signed him, hopefully he can come in and prove to be worth going at number twelve.

kmart signed a 5/55 contract extension last year, so he'll be making quite a bit more money than JT.

his username is good enough for us to welcome him....it don't matter if he doesn't have a huge knowledge of the kings. knowing that the lakers suck is enough

I think he'll turn out to be a pretty good player, still think it was a reach though

I've got a feeling that he is going to be very good, because he plays with alot of heart and emotion. He is also very skilled and isn't afraid do be in the paint. I think it's just what we needed!
