Wesley Johnson sign with Lakers
Is this a good or bad signing by the Lakers????
Don't know if it is good or bad.
One thing's for sure is that it is a really low risk move by the Lakers as his contract would be near minimum.
Read about this earlier today.
The Lakers are pretty much holding one year tryouts. Too bad they didn't sign athletic players like this last off-season. Nick Young and Wes Johnson would have been nice pieces off the bench last year.
+1 to TOL23,That statement is so true.......The Lakers might've been so much better last season if they had signed some younger athletic players and better perimeter shooting.....But they were banking on Those Big Name All Stars and they didnt JUST DIDNT FIT!!!!
I honestly forgot this dude was still around, lol. What a bust.
good or bad? Idk I just hope he FINALLY contributes to a team
Lakers are doing what the Mavs did last year by signing these 1 year deals and hoping to strike gold next summer.
HIs numbers will inflate this year. Guaranteed.
I hope he does well with the Lakers, hate to see busts.
Lakers are becoming the Developmental team for the rest of the league. take the busts give them 1 year. inflate their stats, then they leave to real teams,
signing a former lottery pick that is still young and injury free for the minimum can never be a bad thing...
did anyone see him play? If he has a little athleticism he might be helpful. They need defense, their offense will be fine no matter what
Even if he doesnt perform, its not like they are breaking the bank for them. If they can develop him into a 3 and D player in the mold of a Dorrell Wright, then he will be gold, and if he doesnt develop it just reconfirms what everyone already thinks about him, that he is a bust. Personally rooting for him, loved watching him play at Syracuse.
It's for the veteran's minimum. Bust that he is - that's peanuts
They just got themselves someone who I never even noticed was on the court whenever I would watch him, and when I did notice him he did something stupid like put up an awful 3 or turn the ball over. Have fun with that, LA
brick a 3pt or turn it over? Don't worry Metta did that all last season. If this guy can run back on defense, ill be happy with that
I Never was a big fan of Wesley Johnson,during the draft i felt people were too high on him..The 1 thing he had that was impressive was his shooting.....But once he got to the nba,he couldnt even do that!!! Maybe playing in that system will make him look decent....
