Lakers Rumors: Are The Lakers Targeting Shannon Brown?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Yesterday, the Washington Wizards sent Omeka Okafor and picks for Marcin Gortat, Shannon Brown, Kendall Marshall and Malcolm Lee. The move was mutually beneficial for both teams as the Wizards got the productive big that they’ve needed while the Suns have stacked up more picks for next year’s stacked NBA draft (not to mention that they’ve shredded more talent to ensure that, at the very least, their own draft pick is a good one).

The Wizards only wanted Gortat out of the deal, and are expected to release the other guys included in the deal, according to Steve Kyler. With that news, many wondered what would happen with Brown, and the Lakers could be interested in his services.

Bringing in Brown has its pros and cons. Brown is an athletic wing who could potentially thrive with the playing style that the Lakers second unit has shown in the previous two games against the Jazz. Brown’s athleticism and youth is something that the Lakers have coveted since the release of Dwight Howard, and Brown fits that mold.

Brown will also come on the cheap and would have to be a minimum deal. However, Brown doesn’t necessarily bring anything to the team that the Lakers don’t already have on their roster. Xavier Henry has a similar game to Brown’s, with both Wes Johnson and Nick Young having some of his skill sets as well.

For a team pinching pennies this season, it wouldn’t make sense to release any of the guys who have partially guaranteed deals to bring in a guy who won’t add too much to the team. Brown could add some depth for a back court that struggled with injuries last season, but other than that, there isn’t much upside to the Lakers bringing him back.

    Lakers should do everything they can to get Shannon back.

    • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

      disagree.. he is a duplicate… we need a mobile versatile big…. ala Lamar Odom,,,

  • lakers_824

    shannon brown wil fight with meeks and xavier to get playing time……….dont really care if we get him or not we need BIGS.

    • LakersHeatBeef

      I agree the Lakers need 1 more big man that can rebound and play defense.Dewayne Dedmon played at USC and he looked good in some games i watched,he could be a great asset to the Lakers defensively.Also a few other big men are out there waiting for a job in the NBA.We shall see if Shannon Brown returns.

    • michaela (; <3

      good shit bruh , ball is life N!gg@

      • michaela (; <3

        get at me tho SINGLE <3 . <3 (; on facebook @Michaela Quinonez

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Shannon Brown is coming back.That is for sure.I posted it on the Marcus Landry thread saying the Lakers should bring back Shannon to pair him up with Jordan Farmar and Kobe.Some poster said we are fine i said Shannon is better than Elias Harris.I am right once again.Shannon and Pau have set aside any differences long ago,it’s time to reunite.

    Great news for the Lakers as Shannon Brown is a fan favorite and he is a huge spark plug off the bench.His strengths are he is very athletic one of the best athletes in the NBA also he is very fast and he can dunk the ball after contact on a play.He is fearless and a good scorer.He plays some solid defense and he hustles hard.Lakers got lucky he got traded and waived.Who are the Lakers going to waive now to make room for him?

    Quick question why do teams in the NBA make trades and waive the players afterwards?Does it save the team money or is it something else?I have followed basketball for a long time but i never have understood why teams trade and get a talented player but waive them the next day?

    Go Lakers!

    • Farmar

      because potato.

    • Anthony Ukpe

      Usually it means that player doesn’t fit into what that team has set for there roster and were just thrown into the trade to match salaries to make it work

    • Hatfield

      Teams do that to balance cap space and match money. One guy makes so much it takes 4 guys to equal his pay in trading. That’s the best reason I can think of anyway

  • Matt Williams

    We might have to drop someone. Meeks has been streaky lately. Blake too. He has his days where he’s red hot the days he’s ice cold. Someone’s gotta go!

    • Link

      They wont get rid of Blake. They need that point guard depth behind Nash.

  • http://www.facebook.com/eddie.lazaro123 Eddie Lazaro

    As athletic as Shannon brown is, I don’t think we should stir the roster just to bring him in. We have enough players with the same qualities like him.

    • Paytc

      Eddie Lazaro,
      I do agree with you but if the athletes we have are only one sided players and lack defense…. Then Shannon may indeed be a valuable addition. I have not seen enough play to fully evaluate who has defense. I do know we added some capable scorers and a few shooters. What is your feeling about any lock down defenders outside of Kobe?

      • MitchK

        Kobe is no longer a lock down defender.

        • cj

          kobe is a lock down man to man defender. his off ball is whats bad

          • Daryl Peek

            Nope. Kobe can man up from time to time but he cannot lock a player down for whole games anymore. Not on a night to night basis. When you say lock down defender you’re talking about someone who can do it every night when needed. NBA teams don’t play man up D anymore, it’s all about communicating and rotating, something Kobe’s been really bad at the last few years. I expect many to dislike this comment but its the truth.

          • cj

            kobe has proven to when asked shut down someone on the other team. irving, westbrook, wade, and jennings were all shut down at some point last year. he can do it its just not something that he should do anymore

          • Daryl Peek

            Kobe said it of himself, I can’t do it night to night anymore. This was before the injury. Thus he’s no longer a lock down defender.

          • Paytc

            He is a good and capable lockdown defender. Will he get beat occasionally yes who doesn’t? The point I am making is Kobe is still the teams best defender so knocking Kobe’s defense means you think the rest of the players suck on defense. The point I am making is Kobe is not enough. We need to get Kobe some help !

          • Daryl Peek

            Again, Kobe said himself said he can’t do it anymore, why can’t you take the mans words on the matter?

          • Paytc

            I am taking his word and even more than that. Can’t you read my words or my lips…. Kobe is still the teams best defender.

            I am saying “GET KOBE SOME HELP” .

          • Daryl Peek

            Wasn’t Metta help for Kobe? Didn’t we just add a bunch of more athletic wings as help? Come on man!

            D12 was supposed to be help but obviously that didn’t work out.

          • Paytc

            Yes Metta was help but he is gone. Yes we have added some very capable offensive players and that is great. We may even have a few players who will be good defenders?

            I am asking everyone who had a chance to see the team in preseason “who on the team looks like they can defend”? I only saw half of game one.

            I am not complaining as much as I am asking who besides Kobe can we call on to defend?

            All someone has to do is call out a name or two and I may feel better about our chances. If there is no one then we need to address that to further improve the “team” IMO I don’t need to hear Meeks or Blake as defenders because we are all familiar with the returning players abilities or lack there of.

            What new additions do we have that can and will play good defense?

          • Daryl Peek

            Did you not watch the preseason?!? The second unit looks really good defensively. Farmar, Henry, Johnson and Meeks are playing very well on defense. We are actually able to press full court! I can’t remember the last time a Lakers roster had that ability.

            Blake has guarded Gordon Hayward admirably the last two games. Given that physical mismatch that is amazing! Again, come on man?

          • Paytc

            I have said I have only watched one half of preseason game number one.
            You keep making it seem as though I am complaining :-) No far from that. I am asking questions for answers not ranting and complaining.

            I am excited with the new additions because now it’s “step up ” or pass water bottles and towels time. That is great for players who need outside motivation to propel themselves to higher production. It also eliminates excuses. Again you can have the last word on this discussion. Go Lakers!

          • Daryl Peek

            You really shouldn’t comment on player performance if your not watching the games man. Players like Meeks are and have been stepping up. Meeks was a youthful injection of surprising defense last season on a injury decimated bad chemistry plagued team.

          • Paytc

            Exactly ! CJ you know what’s up !

          • Paytc

            Correction. I don’t think Kobe’s off the ball defense is bad. Kobe’s has one of the highest basketball IQ’s in the game. He is not perfect, but he is the teams best offensive and defensive player. He is the best player in the league IMO

        • Paytc

          That is a matter of opinion. Kobe will still “STEP UP ” to the challenge. If I recall last year when the Lakers needed someone to slow down or lock down the best player on the other team they called on Kobe. Kobe did a good job everytime he slide over to guard Curry when no one else could. Kobe embarrassed Lebron James blocking his shots several times in the all star game. Kobe is obviously not as young and capable as he was 10 years ago but he is still a very capable defender who is selected to the all defensive team about every year, Kobe is not enough that is why I am asking that we get him some help !

          • Daryl Peek

            Never said he was not capable, he just hasn’t been lock down for a few years now. I recall too many instances where he gets burnt by his man or fails to get back and help on the break. Kobe has been protected from too much one on one man up D since the days of Ariza. Phil started that to save Kobe for offense. Metta continued that. Kobe has had plenty of help. Meeks stepped up defensively last year. That’s one of the reason he got PT.

          • Paytc

            No he got play time because the coach decided to give him play time. The reason many players like Meeks and Blake etc… get play time is because the FO decided to pay them more than they were producing and want to get something back for the money spent on the players. It is hard to justify bad contracts because someone has to take the blame when they decide to sign the wrong players. It trying to cover each other ass from coach to FO.

            But the coach will be gone before the guys in the FO so he better do what’s in the best interest of the team.

          • Daryl Peek

            “In his first season with the Lakers, Meeks had moments where he demonstrated his three-point marksmanship but consistently played with great energy on the defensive end.

            Meeks will need to be more consistent with his perimeter shooting and continue his defensive efforts if he wants to be Kobe’s primary back-up this upcoming season. There is much more competition in the backcourt, and Meeks will have to earn his minutes.” –Lakers News: Jodie Meeks Preparing For Second Opportunity With Lakers
            By Dan Duangdao| August 20, 2013

            Dead on report by Lakers Nation about Meeks performance last season and also shows the help that has been brought in.

          • Paytc

            That is a great thing! I am not even close to a “player hater” If a player is producing I will be the first to give them props. But I will also be the first to ask that each player “STEP UP” and be accountable. We brought Meeks to the team primarily to knock down the outside shot. If he is unable to do that first and for most he is a bust even if he is playing good defense in your opinion.

            I know these guys have families to support and I want them to all do well.
            But what does love have to do with business? If you are not “STEPPING UP” someone is looking to take your minutes and that is a great thing ! Good luck to them all.

          • Daryl Peek

            All players are streaky shooting from distance, remember Kobe’s 0-like 20 something on a couple of occasions, or his streak of extremely high turnovers?

            36% from three point land is below Meeks career average but is about league average on the whole. If said role player is getting it done defensively, in spite of his offensive woes he has worth and has stepped up. Meeks is looking to improve and was very disappointed when he went down to injury in the playoffs. That’s a road dawg.

          • Paytc

            We don’t need to look for faults in Kobe. Kobe is the best player on the team.
            Kobe has helped us win 5 titles and played well enough for us to win about 12 with more support from the team. Players like Blake,and Meeks on the other hand need to justify why we are paying them. Kobe has earned every dime the Lakers have paid him. Kobe has made the team more money than they’ve paid him. Blake Meeks etc…. have cost the Lakers more money than they have earned the Lakers. Who do you know that purchases a ticket to see Meeks or Blake? Don’t say their parents because they get free tickets.

            Again best of luck to each and every player. May the most capable prove themselves to shut up every doubter and critic .That’s what I want to see.

            Go Lakers!

          • Daryl Peek

            But it’s OK to look for faults in others? I completely understand Kobe is our best player and has earned all the rights of autonomy but that does not put him above critique. Especially if others are being blamed for things he helped manifest in error. Fair is fair, no one is above reproach, as a matter of fact, those with great power that have shown they can are held to a higher standard. This is why I wont sugar coat wrong when I see it.

      • Daryl Peek

        Meeks is athletic and has shown very good defense his entire Laker tenure. Johnson is an obvious Shawn Marion/Kwahi Leonard type. Henry is X-factor but I like what I’m seeing out of him on both sides. Young is very questionable on the defensive side but we know he’s a lock on the roster.

        There is no such thing as a lock down defender on this level of basketball. Kobe cannot be that anymore, he hasn’t been since about 07-08. Versatility is the one thing we truly have with most on this roster. Meeks, Sacre, Nash and Hill are the only non interchangeable position players. Hill can play PF but his value at PF is lessened due to not have a good jumper.

        Brown was an undersized SF at MSU who is basically a SG only. Gentry tried to make him a PG but Brown failed. Bottom line, Brown is not an upgrade therefore we really don’t need him.

        • jeremy

          hill has value, but mike trying to make him be something he not. heck reggie evans is one of the worst guys on offense, but he still makes teams , that because he can rebound and play d. something hill can do

          • Daryl Peek

            I agree but you have to give the HC the power to run the show the way he sees fit. Anything less is setting him up for failure.

          • jeremy

            but to be fair, mike d way of running things havent work that well in the past that why he doesnt have a ring. plus it more about defense then having a fast break team. heck mark jackson know that ,that why he put so much focus alot on defense and that made golden state so much better

          • Daryl Peek

            So were back to rooting against the current HC?

            I’m Old School. I grew up on the Pat Riley no lay ups, no rebounds no ring Showtime Lakers coupled with the rough and tuff 90′s style of basketball. The zone and other rules have forever changed the game. Traditional PF’s are a thing of the past. Do you know how hard that is for an old fart like me to accept?!? As a kid Moses Malone and Darryl Dawkins types were my idols.

            MDA’s style of play is now the way. Miami is running things using it. Defense is more about athletic wings which is what we now have. Phil prospered with athletic wings also. Jordan and Pippen were AWSOME defensively. Kobe took up that mantle with different wings during the Shaq era. Every team needs a goon so to speak. This is definitely where I differ with MDA. Hill is that dude, I just hope MDA continues to use him. But back to my point, you have to give the HC what he feels he needs like it or not. Give MDA credit, he hired Rambis to help him with his lack of defensive acumen.

            MDA is the guy the FO is vested in right now. Lets give him what he needs and hope for the best.

        • Paytc

          I agree with you to a point. You are making many good points. While you may say there is no such thing as a lock down defender that I dis agree with. Perhaps lockdown is putting too much on the term, however what I mean is a player like Michael Cooper who wanted to play defensively. It’s easy to get players who want to score,but not many who want to specialize on locking down the other teams best player. If we want to go far we will need a few players who can defend when a player or scheme breaks down our rotations and team defense? Outside of Kobe who else likes to play defense? I have heard Williams is suppose to be a good defender? I have heard you throw around Meeks,and Blake as good defenders but I am not impressed with either of them on offense or defense outside of playing a good game once in a while.

      • Joseph Apohen

        I was never impressed with Brown’s defense. He is no better defensively than anyone we now have.

        • Paytc

          Joseph Apohen,
          You could be right? What I recall best about Shannon Brown was his high flying dunks and athleticism. I thought he was a decent defender and don’t recall him being a defensive liability. He could defend and gave effort to defend. What I don’t want to see is guys with the attitude that they will just out score the opponent. We need a few players who like to play defense. What happens when everyone just wants to score and we are cold or being out scored we start “finger pointing ” and excuse making. If we have role players who are willing to “STEP UP ” and do some of the dirty work we’ll have less excuses and finger pointing. A few defensive minded players are important to have on every team IMO.

      • http://www.facebook.com/eddie.lazaro123 Eddie Lazaro

        I can see Williams and Johnson on defense but don’t forget that Farmar is averaging 2.5 steals during the

  • Daryl Peek

    The triangle Lake Show nostalgia can be the undoing of this team. We all love Shannon Brown and he may be able to contribute but he struggled mightily in the D’Antoni system in Phoenix under Alvin Gentry. Brown had a hard time getting off the bench with the Suns and was always in the dog house. He never found chemistry along side Nash.

    This current group of Lakers are just fine as constructed. I’m not against a Brown return if the FO and MDA want that but I’d rather we continue to groom chemistry with what we currently have for now.

    • Gregory Choa

      …”the triangle Lake Show nostalgia”…LOL!!!…perfectly put Daryl…besides, and in spite of his athleticism, Shannon has the basketball IQ of a tree stump…hey, I got another great idea, let’s bring back Phil Jackson…even though the dude can barely walk any more!

  • Gregory Choa

    This tendency by certain fans to constantly screw around with the lineup drives me absolutely crazy – guys, this isn’t rotisserie basketball, this is a real, live, organic whole we’re talking about! Mike has FINALLY just been able to meticulously mold this team and develope cohesion and chemistry by way of his first camp and preseason with this roster…and now you wanna screw around with that by reintroducing Shannon Brown into the mix??? Why is it so difficult to leave well enough alone? This is as deep, athletic and synchronous a team as the Lakers have had in the last three seasons, and now you want to tinker???

    SMH…

    • Daryl Peek

      My sentiments exactly!

    • Joseph Apohen

      I agree. We don’t need Brown. I think X is better than him. I think MD has done a good job in moulding the team which he now can call his. I would leave it alone for now and see what happens some 20 games into the season.

      • jeremy

        x is better because he a more complete player then brown is. lakers fans seem to forget he not that great of a shooter. yes he had his moments but he not a good fit for the lakers. since he cant do the most important thing shoot the 3 and meeks and others can

    • David Ojeda

      this roster isn’t indespensable.How is a proven player with 2 championships gonna disrupt what u have going on? What do they have going on exactly? This is a proven winner not to mention clutch in playoffs and championship games we r not talking potential which is what we r full, proven vs potential big difference!

      • Gregory Choa

        ^ another shining example of “the triangle Lake Show nostalgia” in full effect! David, it’s time to let go, that time has come and gone…bringing Shannon Brown back into the fold isn’t the answer. A full training camp and preseason has finally allowed this team, under Mike D’Antoni, to evidence some real chemistry and cohesion to get to this point – it’s time to allow this group to start paying some dividends. Try to resist the urge to constantly tinker. The only tinkering that should be going on is with respect to MDA’s rotations, not the personnel.

      • Daryl Peek

        Where was the clutch moment for Brown in the playoffs? His playoffs numbers actually shrunk compared to his regular season numbers for us. I can’t recall one clutch moment of Brown’s in the playoffs?!?

  • jeremy

    the lakers dont need brown only reason i see him back if they see him as a better player then a guy like hairrs. but really why get him , he not that great anyways. he a one trick pony. he was fun when he got dunks and stuff,but he never shown that great of a shot. if anything henry could be 2x the player brown is. as much as i dont like meeks at times meeks might be better on defense then brown is. no to brown it a waste of time and ruin the chemistry the team build

  • Michael Babineau

    why don’t we just sign Walton, Madsen and Mihm while we’re at it?

    • Daryl Peek

      LOL

    • lakers_824

      Yeah lets bring back the crew smush, kwame, turiaf, brian cook, devin george the boyss!!!

  • #LakerNation310

    1.Xavier Henry should be starting on the Lakers till Kobe comes back
    2.Shannon Brown is not needed the Lakers need a solid stretch PF
    3.if anything trade Jodie Meeks for Shannon Brown straight both teams would be happy with the trade Wash gets a knock down shooter to back up Beal and Lakers get an athletic guard

    • jeremy

      but meeks might not be great, but he a better fit for mike offense, because he can shoot the 3 and brown cant

      • #LakerNation310

        Brown can shoot threes and he is a better defender and can also create for himself and others.. Meeks cant finish around the rim he is good for one thing and thats jacking up threes and if he’s hot its great and when hes not he is useless

        • jeremy

          meeks has a career 36% and brown 33, meeks is a better fit since he a bigger player and meeks is better at FT shooting and both arent the greatest shooters. but at this point and time ill take meeks. like some on here say brown never did well in a mike d style offense

      • Paytc

        Meeks has been a 3 point specialist disappointment . We brought Meeks to the team primarily to knock down the outside shot. He has not been someone we have been able to rely on to knock down that shot. If I had my choice on Shannon Brown,Ariza,or Meeks Meeks would be the last player I’d select. We are stuck with Meeks so I will be pulling for him even though it’s obvious players like Henry,young,Williams etc.. should be on the floor before Meeks IMO.

  • ra

    Some here may think that the FO reads the comments and makes decisions based upon what we say. But quite frankly, they don’t give a damn.

    (there are exceptions here – I think Daryl Peeks works for FO, but is masquerading as a fan).

    Anyway, if they are going to bring someone here, it might as well be LO. He can still play, and would fill in gaps here. Shannon Brown may be an exciting dunker, and was a fan favorite at times, but may have been fit for our former system. If he would be ‘replacing’ someone, I don’t think that would be good. Meeks is a better ‘sharp shooter’, and I would rather have him in games. I wouldn’t call him streaky, but if he ‘clicks’ this year, we’re in for a whole lotta 3s. He has a better chance of getting in the groove than SB.

    All that said, I’m sure FO will patently ignore what I have to say. Except for Daryl, unless this portion of the blog is finished and we’re moving on.

    • LakersHeatBeef

      Exactly dude the FO doesn’t give a damn what we have to say.They could give 2 bird shits about what any Lakers fan thinks or says about the team.Fact we want Phil chants were ignored completely by FO.

      Also keep Andrew Bynum rants were ignored.Bring back Lamar Odom chatter by Lakers fans was ignored.Lakers will bring back Shannon Brown because they want to not because we asked for it.

      They had thousands of fans saying get rid of Steve Blake for many years they never listen!Aslo all the fire Mike D’Antoni requests by certain Lakers fans are ignored.Lakers don’t give a hoot what any fan or media member does or says.You are correct on that.

      • jeremy

        what ownership actually listen to much of what the fans say. they own the team not the fans and they wont do what fans say. they will do what best for them. im glad we dont have bynum that dude hasnt played since we traded him. we need a healthy center not a guy who doesnt know when he will play again, LO is nice and all, but he isnt the same and the mess he was in this off season lakers dont need on the team. plus LO is not the same player since he left the lakers. blake isnt that bad, yes he didnt lookm good under the old coaches, but he look pretty good under mike d. when he started he avg like 10 point and 5 assist.

      • Paytc

        Of course the FO is gonna do whatever they want for the reasons the up line owners etc… ask of them.I chop game up to send out to the players themselves. We as fans are stuck with the players the FO brings in so it’s best to just try to support and motivate the ones they put on the floor we feel are most capable.

        Who knows if anyone ever reads these post. We do it for the fun of sharing our varied perspectives.

        • LakersHeatBeef

          IMO It’s True the FO generally has a idea of what the fans want.But it just never comes to fruition what we ask for.I cheer for everyone in Lakers purple and gold.I am not a homer,just a loyal Lakers fan.

          Go Lakers!

          • Paytc

            I am pulling for them all too. But we need to put the most capable on the floor,not the most popular. I am a fan too and I think the needs of the “team” are more important than any one player(especially if that player is under producing). Glad you are loyal. Real fans stay true especially for real players.

    • Daryl Peek

      If the FO listened to the fans on coaching or personnel moves the team would be a Donald Sterling hot mess!

      I’m glad they tune out the chatter.

  • Shock the world lakeshow

    How quick most forget Shannon brown dunk over birdman one year in the playoffs changed the momintem of that series. He was a champion. Also it was times he brought the ball up.. I like both Harris and Kelly but if we could add Brown I wouldn’t be mad if one of them was cut. Or Meeks or Blake was traded

    • Merge

      don’t cut Kelly!!! he’s the only pure stretch 4 we have.. when he gets it together LAL will be FAR BETTER than most ppl expect, he’s the true X-factor if you ask me

  • Ron Mexico

    The Lakers have enough guards already. They should look into Emeka Okafor. If healthy he can provide the interior defender the team lacks (aside from Hill).
