Lakers reportedly showing interest in Jodie Meeks

The Lakers are pretty set at starting two guard. Got a guy they kind of like there.


But if the goal is to keep Kobe Bryant’s minutes down — he averaged a ridiculous 38.5 last season for Mike Brown — you need a reliable backup. And while Andrew Goudelock and Darius Johnson-Odom are on the roster, the Lakers want someone with more experience.


Like Jodie Meeks, his agent told Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.


The Los Angeles Lakers continue to express interest in Jodie Meeks, according to source. No deal is imminent, but the two sides are talking.


There’s not a lot of talking to do, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak has said the Lakers are not signing anyone for more than the veteran minimum. So, Meeks knows what is on the table.


Meeks started 50 games for the 76ers last year. He averaged 8.4 points per game and eventually Evan Turner took his job. His role with the Lakers would be differ — 15-20 minutes a night behind Kobe, don’t blow the lead.

    Uff. You obviously didn’t read it. Google the 2011 cba then if you don’t like that link.
    I’ve stated twice in this thread its not JUST about money. It’s about the PENALTIES that go along with going into luxury tax terrain.
    These restrictions will be there, affecting the mid level exception the sign and trade and other things.
    It’s all there in black and white. I don’t sound smart. I sound informed.
    You are the one with your head buried deep up your own hind end.
    Sputtering that they won’t let the Lakers become the T-Wolves.
    If they keep down the road of spending they are on, they will.
    You look so ignorant, you’re arguing without knowing what the rules are.

    There are no loopholes dummy. You go over the threshold, you start losing avenues to improve your team.

    It’s all there in black and white. Don’t be a dummy. Go read the cba.

    I just cannot get over how you are still arguing this when the FACTS are a few keystrokes away.
    This is why I call you willfully ignorant.

    Ok, dude. You totally miss the whole point. There are ALWAYS LOOPHOLES WHEN YOU HAVE A “SOFT” SALARY CAP, you freakin idiot!!!! He who argues with a fool is a fool. Therefore, FOOL, I will now end this debate. While you sit back and pray for the LAKERS demise they will continue marching towards BANNER NUMBER SEVENTEEN!! Ahhh, it’s good being a LAKERS fan! You and “shock” should hook up, you two Mensa members deserve each other. Heck, for all I know you might even be shockexchange!!

    Well, you got 1 thing right, you are a fool.

    I’ll consider your last post your conscession.

    The problem here is, you read the link, you know you’re wrong, and you won’t admit it.
    Or, you’re that damn dumb, you choose.

    You can’t argue with the facts that are in the cba. Good job on backing down, with whatever excuse and cover you used.

    @paul you seem like the idiot responding back and fourth with the other so called idiots. Stop your bickering and hatred because it makes you look like a bully with low self esteem. If your life revolves around hating on a fan base you need to seek professional help immediately.
