That's not happening.

If they actually do end up accepting offers for Bledsoe, the notion that this would be remotely close to the most competitive offer is laughable.

Boozer plays zero defense and is horribly inefficient on offense.

Because Hill could return an asset, which was really the entire point of signing him.

At this point, they're presumably tanking.

If you think that Clarkson can't dribble or pass, you frankly are watching the games with blinders on.

If you're looking and Randle and you don't think he's NBA ready, I frankly question your powers of observation.
Commented on Lakers, Ed Davis agree to 2-year, $2 million contract, according to report on Jul 17 2014, 1:10a
Vonleh's 6'9''. Unless you think he has a growth spurt, he isn't manning the five anytime soon, even in the modern era.

It's less whether they can get an actual rim protector and more that tying up money in Pau when he's a bad match with Randle isn't ideal.
