wesleyjohnsonWesley Johnson is officially a Los Angeles Laker, and he is looking forward to a new start with the franchise.

Since being the fourth overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, Johnson has been bouncing around the league and has not lived up to expectations. Although his career is still in its early stages, many people expected to see more out of former star at Syracuse University.

At his introductory press conference at the team practice facility in El Segundo, Johnson talked about his opportunity to play for the Lakers and what it means to his career. The Los Angeles Times writes that the forward sees this upcoming season as one that can determine where he stands in this league.

“I think this is one of the most important seasons of my life,” said Johnson, who struggled to live up to expectations through his first three years in the league. “I’m coming out to show you the real Wes.”

So far in his short NBA career, Johnson has averaged 7.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. At this point it is unclear how many minutes Johnson will be playing, but the Lakers expect him to make a big contribution in the rotation.

    Are we gonna get any more players??? Who knows?

    • Jim213

      If I’m correct we have 12 players on our roster. Waiting for Lamar though I’d consider trading some players to increase our depth with current needs.

  • Frank Padilla

    Farmar, Young, Johnson and Kaman. Great respect for
    these 4 but La Lakers are not yet looking good.

    • Jim213

      Agree, if Lamar can make up his mind and the Lakers can trade ex. Blake then things will start to look solid. Given that Farmar is back !, I see him backing up Nash which leaves Blake as a third stringer. I’ve also been thinking… what if Kobe’s comeback gets pushed bacK? Who’d carry the team?…

      Given this possible scenario I’d hope that management would seriously consider bring in Nate Robinson as an Insurance Policy to Kobe. If management wanted they could get Nate though I’m thinking of a sign and trade for Blake.

      With Lamar and Nate on the team we’d be back in the mix though the season would determine if they’d be contenders given the challenge of building chemistry but with some of these players are odds would definitely be on our side thus appeasing the masses while buying management more time.

        why would they do any of that? Blake was one of the better players last year and signing Nate Robinson is impossible for them. They can’t afford him nor do they want to sign a long term deal to mess up their salary cap space.

        • Jim213

          So you believe Blake is a better than Nate?! The team has been signing solid players for vet contracts and so forth and though Nate is still holding out for a big contract if management considered this I’d imagine they’d find a way even if just for a year at $4-5 mil.

          I guess you believe S Blake’s going to play Kobeishh style of play. With Farmar in our roster he’ll likely backup Nash and given Blake’s size along with build I don’t see him playing any other position. I’d hope management considers putting the best team on the floor given our current situation even if you’d prefer us to tank…

          It’s about the BRAND/BUSINESS we DON”T TANK!
