wtf......

i doubt he can bring anything Mcroberts or Murphy cant bring ( in defense and offense respectively) at this point.

Or maybe this is what Jimbaco Freddo buss understands as a fine repalcemente for Gasol if he ends up trading him for two burgers and a taco!!!!

Not gonna help them. They are not athletic enough to compete at high levels every night. Most nights when Kobe is taking all those crazy shots everyone else on the team doesnt look the slight bit interested in playing with him. They will make the playoffs but they most likely will be 1 and done.

Well this is an interesting move none the less. If he has anything left he will be great for spacing out the floor. If the Lakers are really sold on him being a contributor then this could be a move before they ship Gasol for pieces.

It will be very interesting the way it plays out. I know Rasheed was talking to teams over a month ago so clearly he should be in some type of basketball shape if he was working the league for a while now.

I think it would be a very interesting experiment if the Lakers could make it work with him Iverson and Arenas.

That would be a very good story for the league in my opinion. I was never an AI hater but I feel he was forced out of the league because of reputation. If he can contribute along with the other guys who have literally been outcasted from the league it would be a very good Replacements type story.

Calderon is way too important for the Raps right now to get rid of for cap space. Without him they'd be way worse moving forward. I think they're more interested in moving Barbosa, who also could fit in with the Lakers or any other team whose bench needs bolstering.

uhhhh wouldnt it be a good idea for raptors to get rid of him if he is providing WINS in order to get a better Draft pick to help their rebuilding?

I just don't understand why teams invest in old players when it's clear by now that it's become a league where you have to develop your youth if you want to succeed. Besides that, the herd from the late 90s and early 2000s was leaned out about 2 years ago, times are changing.

It's always good to have a lot of bigs. Four man rotation of Pau, Drew, Sheed, Murphy, (McRoberts probably gonna get traded now). That's pretty good, pretty deep.

Time to use some chips like McRoberts, 2 first rounders, Ebanks, and the 9 mill TPE, to get a pg or bench scorer.

I actually like this signing. The man will ALWAYS be able to play tough post D and he will most likely still have a good outside stroke. For the playoffs playing posession basketball this is a good signing.

A bench lineup of blake, glock, barnes, sheed, and bynum is pretty decent. That's four players who can spread the floor and a pretty dominant center. Not to mention 4 players that are good defenders.

You guys do know that you can't sign with any team during all star weekend right? The league places a freeze on all signings and trades every year during the weekend. You can only negoitate.

Sheed just has to do a physical. Arenas asked the Lakers to come to him and watch him work out. Sheed is being asked to come to the Lakers after being recruited by them in January as well.

Well for now, since the reports aren't technically true, and no workout has even been done, someone close this thread!

So its pretty much a done deal if he passes the physical?

It's not that, it's the fact that he hasn't even done a workout for them. ANd you say "just a physical", but even that Sherrod guy said that he wouldn't be surprised if Sheed's workout sucked. (But he also claimed 80% he sees him in a Laker uniform). So overall, this Sherrod guy is like John Kenney...a wishwasher.

All I can say is I didn't see this coming but I doubt it will do much for the Lakers. This seems like a move to shut Kobe up for a bit. I'll wait for now and see what other additions they make to there roster.

Right, because Bryant is so dumb he actually thinks Wallace is the winning piece.

McRoberts and a first round pick will be offered to the Cavs for Ramon Sessions, that's why Lakers got a replacement at the backup 5 spot in Rasheed.

4 spot, and it's Chas.

The thing is he isn't allowed to sign with the team during all star weekend. The thread is badly titled, as everyone should know that no signing/trade rule. They also should read the article that says will sign, not signed. The fact is the two parties talked in January. The fact is that unlike Arenas and Iverson, the Lakers actually want to bring Sheed in for a workout/physical and he is not begging for them to watch him (Arenas) or being asked to jump through d league hoops (Iverson).

Also about the workout sucking, most teams have always said that about sheed when he was young, so it ain't a surprise. But like I'm saying and he is saying, the Lakers did the reaching out to Sheed like they did Martin and JR, so there is actually mutual interest

I have no doubt about the mutual interest. It was reported in fact at the beginning of Feb that the Lakers were looking into Sheed and that Sheed stated that the Lakers would be the only team he would play for.

Yeah, I'm saying don't dismiss it or lump it in with Iverson/Arenas. The Lakers actually want Sheed.

The Lakers wanted to pimp Iverson to sell D league tickets while humbling him to possibly give him a NBA contract, and Arenas went out of his way to invite the Lakers to a workout and scheduled it around what worked for them.

They brought in Sheed to beat up and shut up Metta if he is really making the other players walk on "eggshells".

This made me laugh for some reason.

Actually, of the last 4 NBA Finals, the Lakers have made 3 of them (consecutive) and won 2 titles, so if we make it this yr and win, then yes, we create a potential dynasty. Right now, with the Kobe-Gasol Lakers, we're a mini-dynasty.

I'm sure Rasheed Wallace didn't phone in a workout. If Lakers spent money for him to play, it isn't to fill seats.

This maybe a smarter move than people think.

If this unfolds, this could be related to another deal that would take place...

Sheed's 37yrs old already and haven't played ball since 2010 Finals.

Perhaps Lakers will be able to acquire a young PF (derrick?) in a deal (for Pau?).
Sheed's role then is to nurture the kid while playing needed tough/veteran minutes.

Lakers need to resign Javaris Crittenton, pick up Arenas, former Nets forward Jayson Williams, and Iverson... And I'm sure Rodman is available...

So we have:

1. Arenas
2. AI
3. MWP
4. RODMAN
5. RASHEED

Bench:
Jayson Williams
J-Critt

Most of these guys could scout out the prison players for us...

Update: Lakers Havenít Offered Wallace A Job
February 24, 2012 11:59 PM

LOS ANGELES (CBS) ó Former Boston Celtic Rasheed Wallace intends to come out of retirement and sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to a report from A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com.

Wallace has been out of the league since losing Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals against the Lakers.

Blakely, appearing on the Mason and Ireland show on ESPN 710 to clarify his report, indicated Wallace hasnít been offered a job, but has been in contact with the team.

The Lakers have an open roster spot after they cut Derrick Caracter earlier in the month.

Wallace, 37, has appeared in four All-Star games, and averaged 14 points and 6.7 rebounds per game over his career.CBS Los Angeles (http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/02/24/report-lakers-to-sign-rasheed-wallace/)

If Sheed can play like he did for the Celts, that's still a huge addition...

Chinoeyes
02-26-2012, 03:12 AM
He can make more of the perimeter shots pau is taking.

Brown's system is more fitted for a guy like Sheed than Pau.

Pau has struggled because he was moved around the perimeter area and even the 3pt arc.
Sheed plays this areas more in later years of his career.

The Lakers must have no confidence in Metta WP offensively. Rasheed is ......was a decent knock down shooter but I agree with some posters on whether he has anything left. I know one thing, the Lakers have plenty of trash talkers on the squad.
