Bolstering the Bench on the Road to the Three-Peat

Written by: Brian Chettanapanich

After the 2009 championship season, the only change the Los Angeles Lakers made was to add Ron Artest and lose Trevor Ariza. This off-season has been full of surprises. The Lakers have shaken their roster up once again. Steve Blake was the first Laker addition. The Lakers also negotiated with Derek Fisher to make sure he stayed in LA and locked up the point guard depth position.

Jordan Farmar made a exit to New Jersey and signed a 3 year deal worth up to $12 million dollars. Josh Powell also recently had an agreement with the Atlanta Hawks. As for Laker fans, we should thank them for the efforts they made to lead our team to these repeat years.

Other than those two leaving, Adam Morrison has been getting much attention from teams like Boston or Chicago and DJ Mbenga is expected to sign with a new team. Shannon Brown is still up in the air and has yet to negotiate with the Lakers.

This off-season has been arguably one of the better ones for the Los Angeles Lakers. They are making much noise without really making many moves. They have currently signed three free-agent players and have two rookies who have had good performances in the summer league, showing great potential. After signing Steve Blake, here’s a look at the other new Los Angeles Lakers.
