    The Lakers are WAY over on the luxury tax...so they would be paying millions more and Mr. Buss wont do it.

    Tons of energy but very little production. His offensive game is basically limited to put back dunks. He had a back to the basket game in college but that has been non-existent in the pros.

    Defensively is capable, he has pretty good size and is a pretty good athlete. A block and half per game with the minutes he got isn't bad at all. He'll compete and be active but his energy gets him in trouble because he'll foul so much.

    Basically if they are signing him as insurance in case a deal with Biedrins doesn't get done I think it's a huge downgrade. If they bring back Biedrins, Turiaf is a nice energy big man off the bench.

    Which is a damn shame considering they've made TONS of money from the Lakers fans over the years.

    And the fans got a quality product for their dollar.

    Turiaf isn't worth $34mil to Buss, which is what he'd cost considering the luxury tax.

    Of course they got a quality product, but that's not what I'm saying. I'd be willing to bet the Lakers have been taking in more money than they've put out the past 10 or so years.

    I'm not speaking to Turiaf specifically. Just more of the idea that the LAKERS should worry about the luxury tax and where they are at with it.
