Lakers undecided on free agents Hill, Johnson


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) The Lakers have a lot of offseason issues to address and two of them revolve around forward Jordan Hill and guard Wesley Johnson, both of whom will be free agents, per the Daily News

Hill averaged 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds last season, but appeared to grow weaker as the season went on, unable to grab a bigger role for a team with plenty of minutes to go around. 

"The first month, I was showing the energy," Hill said. "But it was the first time having all these minutes on my hands. I started feeling myself going down and feeling fatigued. It wasn't something I was used to."

Johnson, who averaged 9.9 points and showed a willingness to play different positions, has been too inconsistent for Lakers' brass to make a full commitment.

Lakers' Wesley Johnson trying to be more consistent


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) On Feb. 20, Lakers forward Wesley Johnson was benched. Coach Byron Scott decided to send Johnson a message with a DNP-CD. 

Message received. The next game, Johnson hit nine of 11 shots for a career-high 22 points. 

“I should sit him down again and not play him," Scott told Mark Medina of the LA Daily News. "He seems to come back and play better. ... If I do that every other game, he’ll probably average about 20.”

That inconsistency is part of the problem that Johnson is trying to solve. 

“We all have problems trying to understand Wesley. For three or four games, he plays terrific. The next game he’s not there,” Scott said. “If he thought about going out and saying, ‘I’m going to prove myself every single night,’ maybe he would be a different player.”

Johnson will be a free agent after the season and hopes to return to the Lakers. He knows that his ability to give a reliable performance every night will help make the team's decision easier. 

“I’m not always being aggressive,” Johnson said. “I’m trying to feel the game. (Scott) tells me to disrupt the game and take over.”
