Marc Stein: Word is Hornets & Matt Carroll working on buyout after CHA dealt Carroll for Hakim Warrick. Possible free-agent shooter for Lakers' radar? Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

i dont know where he's getting the lakers angle, or how he considers him a shooter, he shot 8 of 43 last year and the year before 17 of 46 and before, 2 for 19..only three times in 9 years has he sht above 33% from beyond the arc with a carer avrage of .32% this guy's a shooter? only if your definition is he takes shots and dont count making them

Not sure if he is the answer but man we are hurting. We could actually be quite good if we were at full strength.

McGrady scored 17 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and dished 6 assists in 29 minutes, according to Sina Sports. Qingdao won the game 93-83, and McGrady highlighted his performance with a baseline drive and one-handed slam

Well in the end it doesnt matter how you do it as long as you win, but pressures on for this guy now.

It will come down to how much Pietrus wants and how much Carrol will take to sign.

I have a feeling Carrol will be cheaper.

Well thats not why I am down on him, I just simply dont like his history about no defense, but I rather have him over mike brown, brown couldn't get these guys to play defense and hes a defensive coach that is like very scary.

Source: D'Antoni considered adding Kurt Rambis to his staff as an olive branch to LAL fans salty about Phil. That was before Rambis torched D'Antoni in his role as an ESPN analyst for not developing bigs or essentially being the right guy to bolster LAL's defense. D'Antoni is a nice guy, but I don't know if he's nice enough to ignore all that. Sulia

THis guy will have to prove many people wrong, theres a reason why many are not happy about it.... I still dont think hes the right hire but we are stuck with him now,so moving on....Mike brown too nice to be a head coach, hes great for young talent not for older egos, Dantoni probably has a bit more backbone and can handle egos but, he plays a system players love, at least we will see improvement at offense since its been busted the last 2 or 3 seasons, even when phil was there, so I suppose thats a big upside to this.

your absolutely right, and with your big upside point, that's the whole reason i threw out his name, his style will be great for our offense. With d12 at the rim im not concerned. but he does have a lot to prove, a lot!

death wish? dude should have stayed retired. so sad

The much-anticipated return of Brandon Roy to the Rose Garden will not happen this week after the Minnesota guard and former Trail Blazers legend has scheduled a right knee surgery for this week, The Oregonian has learned. The arthroscopy will be the seventh of his career, dating back to high school, and the fifth since he has been a professional. It is unknown how long Roy will be sidelined. Oregonian
