NBA News: Former Laker Kent Bazemore Signs With Atlanta Hawks

The Los Angeles Lakers saw another player from last year’s roster head elsewhere on Friday with Kent Bazemore agreeing to sign with the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

The Lakers expressed interest in retaining Bazemore during the free agency period, but obviously weren’t willing to top the offer the Hawks were sending his way. Bazemore was acquired by the Lakers in the trade that sent veteran point guard Steve Blake to the Golden State Warriors before the NBA trade deadline last season.

During Bazemore’s short time in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old made an impression. Head coach Mike D’Antoni gave Bazemore considerable minutes with the Lakers and he made the best of it turning heads around the league making him a desirable free agent on the open market.

In 23 games with the Lakers, Bazemore averaged 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. Bazemore also became a force from outside shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc.

MarShon Brooks was also acquired by the Lakers in the Blake deal, but will also head elsewhere with the guard currently on the Summer League squad for the Sacramento Kings.

    I wondered if we could compete with Charlotte and Atlanta to keep him. He’s from close to Charlotte, and EVERY black person I have ever known from that region LOVES the city of Atlanta. I am sooooo bummed about losing Kent. I was sad about Blake going back to Portland, but this one just devastated me. Good luck, Kent! You will be missed.

    Lakers are talking about getting a competitive playoff team this year. All the time it took top players Lebron and Carmello to choose their teams combined with the Lakers limited Cap room, I just hope there are enough quality skilled players left, that they need, willing to sign with the team.

    I would just love to get Ariza at the starting small forward position. Wonder who the Lakers will get?

    I would have loved to see Bazemore resigned. He is one of the best promising guards coming off the bench I have seen all season. A potential star. I guess the Laker have their priorities

    Too bad another one (Basemore) got away. What are the Lakers doing? They have talents in front of them but are looking somewhere for someone else. Can;t they see talent which is in front of them? The team is a mess. They lost Farmar, Gasol, and now Basemore. We are not going to make the playoffs for at least the next five years. Don’t bank on Durant coming to LA when he becomes available. Or Arledge (spelling?) Why would they come? We will not have a championship team.for at least the next five years. Sad but true.

    This not only confuses, but pisses me off as a Lakers fan. We could have offered Bazemore a 1 mil qualifying offer to make him a RFA. WTF didn’t we do this? 1 mil, really? Couldn’t spare 1 mil? Had the opportunity to match any offer that would have come in. He played well enough last year that he would of helped the sorry ass squad we have now, believe that. Jim n Mitch f’d this one up bad.

    I always felt that this guy’s “too” confident.

    Bu bye!
