Western Notes: Lakers, Parsons, Honeycutt

If they are unable to land Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James, the Lakers are also expected to have a strong interest in Wizards free-agent forward Trevor Ariza, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, Pistons center Greg Monroe, and Suns forward Channing Frye, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com.

More from out west:

  • Potential suitors are beginning to line up now that the Rockets have declined their team option on Chandler Parsons. Teams that are potentially interested in pursuing Parsons are the Timberwolves, Bulls, Mavericks, and Lakers, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Houston will have the opportunity to match any offer sheet that Parsons signs.
  • Spears also notes that if the Timberwolves aren’t able to work out a trade that sends Kevin Love to the Warriors for Klay Thompson, then Minnesota might attempt to work out a sign-and-trade deal with the Rockets for Parsons.
  • Former NBA player, Tyler Honeycutt is weighing overseas offers versus making an NBA comeback, reports David Pick of Eurobasket (Twitter link). He has already auditioned for the Jazz, Rockets and Warriors.

None of the top tier free agents will consider the Lakers until the little Busses sell the team outright or at the least get rid of Jim Buss and Kupchak and bring in a legitimate front office team. The incompetence of the last few years have turned a third world team like the Clippers into a mainstream contender. Jerry Buss deserves better. So do the Laker fans.

Kupchak has been proven as a good GM IMO and like him, but I do agree with you that Jim Buss needs to be gone.

I lost all respect for Kupchak after the part he played in chasing Jerry West away from the Lakers.
