    Default McBob to sign 2 year deal with LA for mini-mid level exception

    https://twitter.com/#!/spearsnbayaho...86631640965121

    F Josh McRoberts to sign two-year deal using mini mid-level exception with @lakers, source tells Y! Avg 7.2 pts, 6.2 rbs w/Indy last season.
    Thats seems quite low and not sure how the Grizzlies could have potentially offered less

    Maybe its because he felt slighted by the Pacers for not reaching out to his agent sooner and wanted to stick it to us and not allow the Mayo sign and trade

    Reaching? probably but outside of the "LA has more to offer than Memphis as a city, not sure what else was the driving factor
    Sittin on top of the world!

    at that price the Pacers should have offered him something.

    Looks like he's clearly going to see significant playing time up front as well, given Bynum's suspension, and:

    The Grizz offered more, Josh just saw an opportunity to get plenty of minutes on a LAKERS team.

    LMAO, with all the front court problems the Lakers have been having (Bynum suspension, likely injury in near future, and now this one..) Ater might make the team. I'll laugh so hard.

    Memphis' offer was significantly more than the Lakers.

    But they aren't the Lakers.

    Good for JMac. I'm happy for him. He will fit in really well there.

    Can't say I blame him. He gets to compete for a chip and learn from some of the best. He's only going to get better in that situation. Plus he gets to live in sexy LA.

    McBob was made for Showtime.

    “People talk about how quiet he [McKey] is, but he’s really been helpful. He gives a lot of insight to players in how to guard certain teams and what their weaknesses are. The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    When he nears his prime, he will be in excellent position to maximize his asking price due to the media exposure he will have received nationally for once in his career.

    By significantly more, I'm guessing you mean longer, because I can't see Memphis going into the tax for McRoberts. Anymore per year than the Lakers offer and they would be.

    Good for him. He'll be on a great team and have the chance to play with one of the all-time greats.

    Looks like I'm gonna be watching more Lakers games this year.

    I don't know if I can stomach rooting for them, but I'll be rooting for him when he gets on the floor. It looks like he will have the opportunity for ample playing time.

    Longer, and more per year. Heisley was willing to pay the tax.

    They wouldn't have had to if Bird hadn't tried to shove Rush down their throats, and just let the Mayo-McRoberts swap go, but McRoberts' deal was also independent of that and Heisley said he'd pay.

    Also, I don't know what kind of paper the Commerical-Appeal is, but the Grizzlies' beat writer has some bad information.

    It'll be tough when we play them and he gets an alley oop pass for a one handed dunk.

    I'm happy for him though. He's going to do well there.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!

    I'll be able to watch more Laker games than I would Grizzley games, most likely. So that's cool.

    Also, no way he gets screwed out of the dunk contest this year.

    Good for him. I am sure having Kobe on the floor will make him look better as well. I wish him nothing but the best.

    So that is why the deal didn't go through then? Ugh. I really would have been okay with Rush still on the team as the third string SG/SF.

    I don't really get this talk, why would he sign here to be third string? Clearly just didn't make sense for either side.

    I couldn't agree with you more bro ...
    While I will be extremely happy for Josh and rooting for him in every game he plays as a Laker (except vs Indiana),I will be extremely sad that we let him slip through our fingers..

    It's gonna really hurt seeing him become the great player that I and others have been saying all along he will become, on another team... (especially the Lakers) But I will be extremely pleased to see him do well..



    The Lakers is probably the best opportunity Josh could have offered to him...

    I look forward to seeing him in the dunk contest soon..


    The Lakers fans will adore Josh ... mark my words....

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    It hurts to see him go to LA. The state of Indiana has disappointed him a lot really, even going back to when Zeller and Dominique James were voted ahead of him for Indiana's Mr. Basketball. Can't help but wish him nothing but the best. Good luck Josh!
