AM: Who out of LA’s summer signings has impressed you, or really made an impact so far this season?

CW: Lou Williams has been playing really well as of late after starting off the year shooting every bit as poorly as Kobe. However, most of the Lakers’ signings or acquisitions this summer seemed wrong at the time and have played out as such.

Brandon Bass is now behind Robert Sacre in the rotations, which speaks for itself. Roy Hibbert was brought in via trade to try and help sure-up one of the league’s worst defenses and he’s been solid as a rim-protector, but even he can’t single-handedly fix all of the issues the Lakers have defensively.

Even Williams is a bit of an issue as it’s another player that needs minutes in the backcourt. Moreover, he’s the type of player that’s a luxury for a playoff team to have, but somewhat of a burden for a lottery-bound team like the Lakers. It’s not that they’ve all been unimpressive, but more that they just don’t fit with what the goal of this current team should have been.
