Hopefully he isn't too expensive, but I'm always a fan of adding wings who can shoot

The thing we have been lacking for years is size on the wing. We now have 3 guys (outside of Bron) who can really play: Rui, Vando, Prince

Love it. But also, does this make Rui expendable? I doubt it.

VERY GREAT PICK UP!!!

Size for both PF-SF, can shoot the 3 & play’s defense, if I remember correctly he always gave us trouble, but who doesn’t….

4.5 mill great price, I guess Dennis is a goner?

Looking at his stats

effective FG% of 56% which has steadily improved over 3-4 years.

https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/p/princta02.html

Can he be considered a 3 & D and can he play at the wing?

For reals. From Glen Rice, Mattews, and Beasley...it is the pressure and bright lights playing for the Lakers.

Great pickup for the BAE or equivalent: plays with heart and hustle, never gives up, feisty, competes, defends and can space the floor.
I'm rather surprised he took a 1 year deal even if BAE is roughly his reasonable value.

Oh good. When I saw he got dissed by whoever team that was (TP found out from a Woj tweet they were cutting him loose) I thought he might be a good pick up for us. I also saw that video of him after a NCAA game where some reporter asked him a super dumb question in a condescending way and TP dished it right back with the greatest reply ever.

Welcome aboard Taurean!
