If Shannon Brown Departs, Who Can the Lakers Replace Him With?

Shane Battier – Memphis Grizzlies – Unrestricted – $7.4 million
The only obstacle in getting Battier would be the money situation. Battier is coming off a $7.4 million pay day last year with Memphis, and is surely looking to be paid somewhere in the same ballpark as that. If Battier would take a slight pay cut in order to help the Lakers win their 17th title, this could turn into a beautiful relationship. Battier is a high character guy, he is a solid defender, and he can knock down three’s with the best of ’em – 38.5% for his career. Although he is more of a small forward, he and Matt Barnes are versatile enough that they could play the two guard for the Lakers in Mike Brown’s new system.
