    Get a free first round pick out of it, the Lakers aren't going to be good next year anyway, why not do the deal?

    Which is kind of surprising to me. I think the Lakers should tank, get a pick, and then go after some in FA. They're the Lakers with Randle and another good player they could get a star FA because they're the Lakers.

    The Lakers also drafted a pg in Jordan Clarkson so he's going to be competing for a roster spot too.

    Plus I'm sure the Lakers know Houston is desperate to make cap room for Bosh (it's no coincidence that LA is suddenly interested in acquiring Lin). They can try to snag at least a 2nd Rounder from Houston out of this. They're not getting Melo and potentially losing Pau, next year is another waiting year for them anyway.

    I'd rather have Kane than Nash. Nash looks like he should be in a retirement home.

    lets not pretend that Lin is an all star though. Pat Beverley beat out Lin in Houston. Kane can beat out all 3 of the PGs.

    Um no. Even if Nash is better right now skill wise, his age and injury prone body will lead just being on the team.

    Marshall, maybe. I just haven't seen much from Marshall to tell me the Lakers want to stick with him long term. Them drafting a PG would point to that as well. Marshall put up some solid stats but the Lakers were generally getting destroyed so most of his points (8 PPG) came in garbage time and his assists too (8 APG).

    Yeah you get Lin on an expiring contract and a 1st round pick...so essentiually you get him for nothing.

    LA would be insane NOT to do this deal.

    And it appears we have a lot of Kane colored glasses in this room....iloved Kane....hes not better than Lin much less Steve Nash even if he is 57 years old.

    I'd give Swaggy P a max contract, just for the hell of it.

    This. I couldn't find the stats, but I remember reading an article that explained how most guys don't end up on the roster of whoever they play for in Vegas and Orlando. Summer league is more like a way of getting your foot in the door. Scouts for other teams (both NBA and overseas) can get a look at your game and maybe offer you an opportunity down the road. Deandre will probably have to pay his dues in the D league or Europe, just like a lot of other guys who weren't first round picks.

    Looks like the are also getting a future 1st round pick. Not sure, but his salary wont be on the books much longer, which still gives him value as a future trade asset.

    I couldn't find it, either, but that's the one I was thinking of.
    Even then, the chances of actually seeing the floor are remote, although Diante Garrett and Chris Babb have done a nice job breaking through the impossible odds.

    While I agree 95% of the non returning summer league guys wont make the roster this year, kane has been pretty universally named as one of the few that are most likely to be on a roster next year among the undrafted. Some even saying his odds this year are better than many of the second rounders drafted (which I would agree with). I feel better about his odds then I ever did Royce Whites.

    Except he's American-born and of Taiwanese descent, so I don't think he's actually super popular over there.
