Am I the only one a little infatuated with his game and his effort???

16th in the league in RPM for PF's.

25th in WINS for PF's.

15 in defensive RPM for PF's.

I like this kid!!!

Nader and our first rounder might get it done.

Thoughts??

I think Nance is one of the most likable players unanimously in the Lakers outside Ingram and Kuzma.

They wouldn’t give us Nance for Avery Bradley. They’re not going to move him for a late first.

He is signed for almost nothing through next year before becoming a RFA; I have no idea why the Lakers would ever consider trading him - especially for Nader and a crappy 1st.

I guess it also really comes down to who the Cs prefer: Nance Jr or Theis. Theis is already familiar with the system and can help stretch the floor. I would happily add Nance Jr. to our roster with or without Theis, though.

They might have to use Nance in a deal to offload one of those bad contracts (Clarkson).

He is on the block:

Don’t know Nance at all.

Obviously there are better players than Theis but we shouldn’t sell him short, especially on that cheap cheap contract. Somebody made a nice point the other day that Brad has been bringing Theis along gradually. Each month his minutes are ticking up. His last few games he’s grabbing 7 boards in 17 minutes. That’s really good production out of a backup center. He also plays good defense and is a pretty reliable roll man and midrange pop man.

I love Theis and his ability to open up the lane with his outside range.  Nance plays almost exclusively on the block!!

A little different, but both play solid defense and rebound.

I've had a man-crush on Nance for over a year...and I think Danny does too.  Unfortunately, he's not gettable.

I would much rather get Kuzma but he is not on the block but that guy can play.
