Lakers Nation Debate: Which Current Lakers Should Return Next Year?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Topic: With the season ending and a number of players’ contracts expiring this off-season, we examine which players the Lakers should bring back next season.

Context: Last off-season, the Lakers signed a number of players to one-year contracts. From former lottery picks to veterans trying to show they can still contribute to a team, this season amounted to something of a tryout for these players.

Additionally, guys like Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill will also be free agents after this season and it is up in the air as to whether either of them will return.

As the season now winds down, it becomes time to evaluate what everyone has done this season. The Lakers obviously can’t bring back everyone, nor should they, but who should be the team’s main focus.

Hill, Gasol, Chris Kaman, Jodie Meeks, Xavier Henry, Kent Bazemore, Nick Young, Jordan Farmar, Wesley Johnson, and Kendall Marshall have all had great moments this season, but who should be the Lakers primary targets?

Verdict: We took the question to Twitter to ask our fans which three players they most want to see back on the Lakers next season. Here are some of the responses:

With so many options, there are sure to be a lot of differing opinions, but the two players who have seemed to endear themselves the most to the fans as future Lakers are Nick Young and Jodie Meeks.

Both would make excellent role players as Young thrives off the bench, which is something few players do, and Meeks has arguably improved more than any other Laker from last season.

Jordan Farmar, Jordan Hill, Pau Gasol, and Kendall Marshall also were quite popular to return next year. At the end of the day, it will come down to what the Lakers value most.

Maybe they try to hit each spot and get a guard, wing, and big man. Combos like Farmar, Young, and Gasol, or Marshall, Henry, and Hill could be back next season.

In my personal opinion, I would love to see Farmar, Meeks, and Henry back next season as they seem to understand their roles best and bring versatility.

What do you think? Who should the Lakers bring back next season?

    Henry, Young, Hill, & Meeks

    • Jim213

      Eric Pincus (L.A. Times) suggests Lakers hire Kevin Ollie partly due
      to his basketball insight, but also b/c he could help lure Kevin
      Durant to LA in 2016.

      • Daryl Peek

        Kevin Olie is way too inexperienced, to garner Kobe respect as a HC.

        • Jim213

          No diss to 24 but looking beyond his last few years. However, if he wins today things may change being other team’s will likely show serious interest, Players like K Durant, Westbrook, Jeff Green, and James harden think highly of him too .

          My thing is the next head coach for the team should be someone who’ll be here for more than 3-4 years who the franchise can mold and would have enough appeal for top talent to consider playing under him.

          • Daryl Peek

            “The decision to exit D’Antoni is intrinsically tied to replacing him. There’s no reason to cut him loose without the right hire in his stead.”

            I 100% agree with this.

            First thing; KD and Westbrook are not leaving OKC anytime soon and KD will not leave OKC at all IMO. He’s not driven by the big market bright lights the same as say Tim Duncan isn’t either. For all intensive purposes, OKC has set the future of what they intend to be for the next several years and both KD & Westbrook are part of those plans.

            If the Lakers were to look at bringing in a college coach to man the HC job for the foreseeable long term future, I’d say Calipari or Donovan should be the choice. Both have the gravitas to command the respect of Kobe and attract free agents given how many of their former players are in the league. Cal actually did a decent job in Jersey given the bad state of the team he took over, and Donovan exudes coaching confidence that would translate on every level. Ollie needs to season more at Uconn, and I believe that was his goal in taking over at his alma mater…

            “Durant may not leave Oklahoma City. Ollie may not leave Connecticut.”

            “It’s a five-year contract,” said Ollie to ESPN. com in 2012. “I’m looking at it like I can be the coach here for 20-25 years.”

          • Jim213

            With regards to your last post this doesn’t relate to acquiring Durant. It’s more having a coach that can lead his troops and who can motivate them night in and out aside of getting on their case when times call for to which the current coach is not an in your face person IMO.

          • Daryl Peek

            I addressed that in Cal and Donovan, and again, Ollie is not leaving Uconn and is not ready for the NBA yet.

          • Jim213

            Something to be considered but aside of that best to acquire another coach tho you think otherwise too.

          • Daryl Peek

            It’s not that I think otherwise like most believe. I’m just not down with changing the HC for the purpose of fan pressure. That’s no way to run your NBA franchise.

          • Jim213

            ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?! lol..smh

            Guess you view the season as successful?! Although, you’ll likely blame injuries just as last season. THE RECORD SPEAKS FOR ITSELF WHICH COMES WITH LIMITED ROSTER ADAPTATION!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Daryl Peek

            WHO CARES ABOUT PERCEPTIONS! THE INJURIES ARE REALITY!!!!!!!!! Again, Dr. Buss payed no mind to the mob rules of the fan base when it came to his plans for the FO dealings of the team and passed that memo to his children as they are all now executing. Only time will tell how it goes…

          • Jim213

            Don’t get me wrong not like the masses who believe the coach should be dismissed just b/c they don’t like him. But all I’m saying is things won’t change for the better with the current coach around for another year or two. He lacks leadership which goes for his passive approach when dealing with players.

          • Daryl Peek

            We’ll agree to disagree on the leadership of MDA. Again, I’m not opposed to changing the HC but not for the purpose of change alone. There must be a clear candidate the FO has in mind with plans of allowing him to groom the future of the team. At this fragile point of the franchise it’s not good to fall into the revolving door coaching carousel many bad teams do.

          • Jim213

            Said it in the past too. Best to have done their homework before the coach gets dismissed. But if they don’t this season it just shows they don’t have a true candidate in mind.

          • Daryl Peek

            …or they see the reality of the last two seasons, most don’t want to concede as the main problems.

            No way around the injury plight that’s the biggest reason for this losing season. No team in NBA history has had an injury plight like this!

            Next, there has absolutely been good player development this season and the team has never truly packed it in even though there have been understandable emotional lows.

            Finally, the players they brought in, starting from this past off-season to the trade of Blake all point to MDA types. The player the team drafts will be another indicator of roster fit in regards to what type of HC they want. They may not have or had a replacement in mind as they built this team to fit his coaching style.

          • Jim213

            ?… Sounds like you’re really buying the showing of the past two seasons. But as you’ve stated before it’s about offensive efficiency smh (pun).

            No defense means this team isn’t going anywhere anytime soon as it’s the coach’s biggest weakness (DEFENSE). Likely why he leaves Rambis to figure it out while he focuses on his offense tho Rambis has has done a bad job just as the coach. Good luck with your belief.

          • Daryl Peek

            Good luck with your blame game campaign.

            Rambis was a bad choice for defensive guru. I believe in the results MDA had in Phoenix as the reason the FO sought him out. That was a great team he groomed and no one who’s a bad leader does that. Winning in the NBA takes elite talent first and foremost. Next you need continuity, everyone buying in and on the same page, coupled with a bit of luck here and there. There is no concrete plan to build a winning team outside of having the best players on roster. The Lakers and MDA did not have this in 13-14 and were a dysfunctional mess from the start last season coupled with key injures. This all sound like excuses but how is reality an excuse?

          • Jim213

            Blame game?

            It’s placing the responsibility on the people who make the decisions not the players foremost. This coach will not succeed and hasn’t (in recent times) with players like Melo and Kobe. He needs to go to a franchise were he can build his own team from the ground up without the pressures that especially come from the most successful brand.

          • Daryl Peek

            You can’t truly make that assessment, first because he was hired in the hot mess of the D12 Kobe beef the was already in place. Nash was on the shelf after game one coming off a 12 year stint where he never missed more than seven games in a season. Melo has destroyed Mike Woodson’s tenure as Knicks HC, and many others on that team are just as dysfunctional as they were when MDA was there. Who was the real problem in NY? Everyone knows it was the FO, as they high jacked MDA when they traded away all of the good young players he had started to groom for the Box office of a Melo NY union. Linsanity was proof of MDA’s ability to get players to win who were willing to buy in.

            I truly believe Kobe and MDA can coexist and used their different views of how to win to help each other. MDA and his system are great for the regular season and in the playoffs but Kobe’s championship experience could be the kicker for MDA to get over the hump if Kobe has that kind of gas left in this tank next season. Again, time will tell what becomes of it all.

          • purplerain53

            Dude. The question here is not for your K.Olie. It is who should stay next season as a Lakers.Stop writing nonsense things.

          • Jim213

            DP is making the case to why he’s against the coach being dismissed. So just step aside or scroll lower.

          • Daryl Peek

            I’m making the case why the FO needs to not yield to the opinion of the masses, so stop trying to put words in my mouth. If they move on from MDA, cool if they have a clear candidate in mind. I’m not with the usual suspects which are Sloan, Karl ETC…

          • Jim213

            Smh, two bad seasons which injuries have contributed somewhat but the results speak for themselves. Once again gave the coach a chance and has failed to show he’s the right coach for the job.

          • Daryl Peek

            Again you’re stuck in the blame game and not considering ALL that led to the problems. Scapegoat decisions are bad for business!

          • Danny E. Pagan

            good coaches are not cheap, if the Lakers fire D’antoni they still would have to pay him plus they have to pay the new coach. I’d rather the Lakers focus 100% on landing some good FA and making the right picks in the draft right now. It’s just not worth firing him to bring another guy who is not going to do much better. The roster is absolutely abysmal this year and is going to most likely suck again next year specially if they focus on coaches instead or players. Why bring in a new high caliber coach with a mediocre roster? The fans will once again blame the coach for everything and this new high profile coach will start in LA on the wrong foot. Let D’antoni coach next season, keep him as the scapegoat, then bring the new coach for the 2015 season when the Lakers are poised to finally have a good roster. D’antoni is actually pretty good making the most out of mediocre players. I really don’t think the Lakers have anything to gain by firing D’antoni and searching for coaches right now.

          • Jim213

            Guess defense doesn’t count for many these days. If FO is willing to keep Nash an extra year might as well get rid of the coach. What the freak makes you think FO will be able to get deals done in 2015?

            I’d prefer giving the coach of the future an extra year (2014-2015) to work with what he has b/c top talent won’t come without having something going as opposed to not doing anything. Although, been saying it for awhile FO needs to find starting role players next season.

          • Daryl Peek

            Agreed unless they have a clear candidate already in mind and can get him on board.

  • vdogg

    farmar, meeks, bazemore, hill, henry. let young go, unless he is willing to play for peanuts again.

    • nlruizjr

      unfortunately, IMO the Kobe contract was a mistake because it severely limited what the Lakes can do regarding role and starting players but I don’t blame Kobe for accepting it, they offered and he said, hell yes now in order for the Lakers to make some room, they will have to let Gasol walk, unless he agrees to a major cut. That’s the only way I see that they can improve their roster and keep solid role players such as: Farmar, Sacre, Meeks, Bazemore, Hill, Henry and Young and hopefully pick up some quality FA starters to blend in with Kobe but they have to create cap space and get a new coach (B. Scott and Cooper).

      • nlruizjr

        forgot R. Kelly

  • Jim213

    No need to have a roster of players who can’t play basic fundamental defense as posted preferred choices numerous times.

  • Jackal Weed

    Jordan Farmar – 2 years, 6 million (Player Option for 3rd Year)
    Nick Young – 1 year, 5.3 million. Resigned in 2015 for MLE (3 year, 17 million deal, to create max cap space for Kevin Love)
    Xavier Henry and Wesley Johnson – 1 year, 1.5 million (2nd Year Team Option for 2 million)
    Ryan Kelly – Qualifying Offer of 1.1 million

    Contract Projections for the rest
    Pau Gasol – 2 years, 20 million
    Jodie Meeks – 4 years, 16 million
    Jordan Hill – 4 years, 25 million
    Chris Kaman – 1 year, 3.2 million (mini-MLE, 2nd Year Player Option)
    Kendall Marshall – Contract Guaranteed and traded for a future 2nd rounder.

    • Jim213

      Your alias say’s it all.

    • comrade24

      you really think Chris Kaman is coming back? lol

    • glmus

      I love this analysis and projections. I think that Kaman would do better somewhere else. I would like to make sure Kelly stays – he just needs more playing time. Otherwise, great job Jackal.

      • Jim213

        Found this one on a different site.

    • Fern Rea

      Kendall wasnt traded for anyone. He was picked up from the D-League after no NBA team wanted him.

      You must be referring to reports that he was traded from the Cleveland Charge to the LA D-fenders. That was for a D-League draft pick, not NBA draft pick.

    • Jackal Weed

      Top Half: Players I want to bring back
      Bottom Half: Contract Projections that the players will get in the open market. LOL. I wanna trade KButter.

  • comrade24

    I think we’re going to have to let Meeks go. He’s going to get some nice offers this summer and deservingly. I would like to Young, Farmar, Bazemore, and Jordan Hill.

    • destiny brown

      Best Comment I’ve Seen On here!

  • michael

    drop everybody without young, famar and gasol.
    Make a sign and trade for pau for a first rounder. Than we draft Gordon and Wilbekin.
    Try get some good FAs, but not for sky rocketing prices. Fill the rest with 1 year contracts.

    Gordon potential and is a decent forward. We wont get a #5 pick, so he’ll be the best pick. And even if wiggins, embiid, parker or exum are still avaible, they might be an other Oden.
    Wilbekin plays decent defend, has a great view of the court and will profit from nash. I like his work ethics and may be better than farmar.

    • comrade24

      People keep talking about “not gonna get this pick or that pick” etc. because of our positioning. IT’S A LOTTERY PEOPLE! the team with the worst record rarely gets the #1 pick. We just have to cross our fingers and hope for the highest pick. It’s looking grim regardless. Seems like the top players except for Wiggins are going back to school next year.

  • trulaker

    besides marshall sacre and nash already in contract for next season, i would love to see, X, Swaggy, Meeks, Johnson, Bazemore back

  • swaggy

    keep hill, henry, young, meeks, bazemore, and farmar. we would have our great bench and then pick up a couple starters. fire d’antoni

  • C*HarrisTHEboss

    As long as i don’t have to look at Marshall’s bald spot or Wes Johnson’s 1980′s fade haircut next year i’ll be happy

  • Daryl Peek

    Young and Meeks are the two players I have the most concern over. They are both solid players who can play a crucial role going forward. Kobe’s return and how much of the Mamba he can recapture will be huge in consideration of both.

    Young is a streaky fan favorite who would be great as a sixth man. Young is basically Jamal Crawford in that position. Meeks is a solid rotational player who has shown he could be a starter in this league. Meeks ceiling is well below elite level but strong enough to command the aforementioned. I could see him being a solid SG if Kobe slid over to SF. I’d Rather see Kobe play SF so he wouldn’t have to defend SG’s that would run him to death coming off screens.

    I’d love to keep both as Meeks starting at Sg and Young as our sixth man would be solid team depth. Money is the main concern as they both have a payday coming.

    • michael

      other way around, kobe should start from SG.

      • Daryl Peek

        Disagree for reasons mentioned

    • comrade24

      Kobe playing SF is not such a great idea. SF’s come off of plenty of screens, but are bigger and more physical. You’re also pitting him against the likes of Kevin Durant, Lebron James, etc..

      • Daryl Peek

        Those players command a double team regardless. Meeks would do a much better job of checking opposing SG’s as Kobe has been shielded the last several years in having both Metta and Ariza cover for Kobe so he could save his legs for offense. At this point of Kobe’s career he’s better suited to guard bigger players, not smaller speedy ones. It’s much easier to game plan for help defense against the elite likes of LeBron and KD 5-6 times a season VS. the other 70 plus games.

  • jabbs

    First things first FIRE DANTONI..Keep FARMAR, YOUNG, MEEKS , BAZEMORE, HILL…Get rid of everyone else and start over

  • lakerfan0

    Keep Meeks, Young/Henry, Farmar, Bazemore and Hill. Fire D’antoni, get a new training staff, a solid player in the draft and sign a couple free agents.

  • 3339

    definitely not dantoni.
    I like Farmar, Meeks, Hill, Bazemore, Henry
    Young will get a big deal elsewhere.

    • Jim213

      One of a few post that I agree with you on.

  • destiny brown

    Young, Bazemore & Henry!

  • destiny brown

    We Have TOO Many Wings! (Jodie, Kobe, Young, bazemore, henry, johnson)!

    • Daryl Peek

      That’s a good thing given we are short at PF and C. PG can and looks to be set therefore having too many wings is again, a good thing.

      • comrade24

        apparently you can’t have too many point guards on the roster.

        • Daryl Peek

          Three to four PG’s are more than adequate.

          • Josh

            Unless they all get hurt and you have to call on a D-leaguer to come in and back up a guy who hasn’t run point since high school. Oh wait. That happened? Ouch.

          • Daryl Peek

            How often does or has that ever happen in league history? Don’t be a prisoner of the moment.

          • Josh

            Boy scouts tell us to be prepared, right? We need to convince Silver to let us sign five guys at each position for next season. Maybe that will be enough…

          • Daryl Peek

            SMH

          • Josh

            You’re right. Five PGs and SGs might be enough, but this year has proven that 2 Centers and 2PFs is way too many. A 15 man roster should suffice. :)

            How about:
            C – Sacre
            PF – RKelly | Johnson
            SF – Deng | Young | Henry
            SG – Kobe | Meeks | Bazemore | Brooks
            PG – Exum | Farmar | Blake | Nash | Marshall

            And sign everyone for one year and $2 million…

          • comrade24

            agreed. i was being facetious considering all the problems we had early in the year at the pg spot.

          • Daryl Peek

            I figured you were. This season has been unprecedented on injuries.

  • destiny brown

    Young-3yr 9mil
    Bazemore-2yr 6mil
    Hill-3yr 9mil
    Henry-3yr 6mil
    Wes-2yr 4mil(Team Option)
    Farmar-2yr 4mil
    Dante-3yr 9mil
    Greg Monroe-3yr 12mil Via Free Agency
    Isaiah Thomas- Via Free Agency 2yr 4mil
    Luol Deng- 3yr 12mil Free Agency
    Josh McRoberts- 1yr 2mil
    Kobe-23 mil (If Im Correct)
    Other Draft Pick

    Total=49mil(Love Gets The Rest)

    • comrade24

      haha mcbob. i actually liked him

    • comrade24

      Luol Deng’s going to fetch a lot more than 4 mil a year :( he’s the guy i want them to bring in as well.

    • Shannon

      Who is paying Bazemore that much? Not the Lakers. Same goes for X. Dante would get the rookie salary and Greg Monroe is looking for the max. Same for Luol Deng. Josh McRoberts? Please tell me you’re kidding.

      • comrade24

        i really don’t think the FO will bring back X. He’s averaged 44 games a season since he’s been in the league. too injury prone, now he’s having two surgeries, (knee and wrist). with the injury bug surrounding this team, i’d be pretty surprised if they brought him back at all.

        • Shannon

          I know I don’t think they will either

      • Marty Susman

        Monroe is NOT a MAX guy…Give him a 2 year at say $10,000,000 & let’s see how he reforms, if good, an extension, if not, Bye Bye.

        • Shannon

          I said HE is looking for the max, not that the Lakers would ever offer or give it to him but I’m sure some other team would.

    • Johnny

      That’s pretty good!

    • Marty Susman

      McRoberts ???

    • Josh

      It’s amazing how no NBA player–besides Kobe and KLove–makes more than $4 million a year in your world.

      Young – prob closer to 3yr 12mil
      Bazemore – that’s a little high, but close enough with a team option
      Hill – 4yr 28mil
      Wes – okay, but let him go
      Farmar – 4mil/yr
      Monroe – 4yr 50mil
      Thomas – 4yr 24mil (but no Isaiah Thomas on the Lakers)
      Deng – 4yr 50mil
      McBob – didn’t we ride that train already?
      What other draft pick? You already slotted Exum. Only one pick this year.

  • Shannon

    Nick Young
    Jordan Farmar
    Jordan Hill
    Kent Bazemore
    Jodie Meeks

  • purplerain53

    Farmar, Meeks, Young, Bazemore and J.Hill.
    K.Marshall and R.Sacre has to be send to the D-League. Anybody else can go.

  • Johnny

    The really screwed up signing Kobe, nobody wants to play or coach the asshole.

    • Jim213

      GTFO Charlie Murphy 5 rings you freakin troll.

    • comrade24

      Haven’t you read Tucker Max? “Asshole’s finish first”

  • Marty Susman

    First of all the lakers will need a whole 15 players next season. They have Kobe & Sacre & sadly Nash who is worthless. They will get one great pick so that means they have to sign 12 players for the year until the 2015 free agency…. OK, let’s assume they get Greg Monroe, that means 11, if they get Deng, then 10 must be signed….The bottom line is who should they resign & that’s hard to decide until after the draft so we know who we get… If for example we get the kid from “down under’ then we need two back up points, Farmar & Marshall, if we get love for Gasol, then we need one back up power forward & so on… The ONE area that’s not being talked about is center & we need a good one as always has been the case with the lakers…. If we could somehow someway get Brook Lopez or Greg Monroe that would set us up for the next 5 to 7 years with a good solid center. We could also draft someone for the Cav’s so we get Irving…. The summer before & after the draft will be fun…

  • Ron LA

    Bring back all ten of them to try to make the team. Kobe, draft pick, free agency and five other basketballs. This would be a great team if Kobe come back with all his skills at the same level.

  • Truth B Trolled

    Bring back Pau, Hill, Meeks, Xavi, Young, and Farmar! Trade the pick! Can the Pringle Man!

  • ahmzie24

    farmar, meeks and henry

  • Josh

    I refuse to pick only three to come back. I want Farmar, Meeks, Young, and Kelly back. And I want Pau if he’ll accept less than $10 million with the understanding that he will be moved before the deadline for real this time. I’m also a huge fan of Bazemore since he’s the only Old Dominion–my alma mater–alum in the league (and pretty good, too).

    Couldn’t care less about Xavier, Wes Johnson, and Marshon Brooks. And Hill and Kaman are practically gone already.

  • LakerFans4Life

    I think whoever the Team gets and or brings back next season, (from the coaches on down) and new players, should have consistently and successfully demonstrated their talents and skills levels and competiveness through out the season to justify bringing them back, provided those talents are necessary pieces the Lakers need to be successful next and or future seasons. The team should look at all NBA players, the draft and free agency to see who has shown the talents/skills that will give them the best/right chemistry to succeed and win at the highest level as soon as possible. It’s all about winning for the Lakers
