    Rockets are waiting to see if the Lakers buy him out. He is in the final year of a monster deal. If Lakers get far from making the playoffs, they could work a buy out (knowing they wont resign him regardless).

    Imagine a 7 footer off the bench that can just drain threes..
    Would be for the minimum for remainder of year if he comes.

    Ok - I might be done for today.

    Love ya CF <3

    I didn't think there was ANY chance Lopez would be bought out. I said that to @basketballholic. He said he thought there might be a chance. So if true, kudos to you _holic. #hattip

    Lopez would be a great stretch 5 on the Rockets

    That'd be SWEET. Harden better get his BUDDY/AGENT to release him then.

    But why not? Lakers won't resign him... He was just traded to LA as a dump for Moz. He is getting phased out of the Lakers lineup. Starts, but then after he is subbed you may just see him a little bit in the 3rd. Doesnt EVER close out games.

    Oh man I would love Lopez off the bench for us. Would fit right in with the team and would give us the chance to give NeNe more rest

    I guess I figured they might want to keep him for potential sign and trade moves. But yeah, did note he was being phased out.

    BTW, do you know what the Lakers are going to do with Luol Deng?
