True, but his time in Charlotte was ended by injury, he didn't have a chance in hell of cracking the Lakers rotation.
Nobody was a bigger Weaver homer than me (if memory serves, me and CK were equally upset with him being moved), so I'd love love love to have him back. Considering the massive ? with Livingston, Collins, and Henderson, I think Kyle would be an ideal addition, especially with the versatility that Larry craves. Dude handles the ball, defends, and has a solid jumper.
As for Ammo, all due respect to ammofan, but teej is right; the guy was gunshy and just miserable as all hell in Charlotte before being sent away. I'd even go so far as to say, he'd rather play foreign ball or retire than return here.

"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
In a quick answer to the general theme of the topic, NO! We are way past picking up other team's scraps. I think you guys are underselling Collins and while I liked the idea of Weaver, Nope. And if anyone brings up that guy with the long hair and the mustache as a legit member of this team.....I'm no good at threats so I'll say that if you do it'll make me disappointed for you and wonder if you have legitimate bad intentions for this team.
In all honesty, Adam played really quite well in the Preseason. He hustled, his defense has improved quite a bit and he has his shot back. I have seen him hit shots in the last few weeks that I haven't seen since the Gonzaga days. HONESTLY, I dont know why they cut him and kept N'Diaye, Seraphin and especially Hudson.
I would be all for bringing back Weaver. He is a very versitile player who can play and defend several positions. I'm not sure why he was not brought back by OKC though. Imagine Weaver out there with the "big 4" that has had so much success in the preseason lately (Wallace, Jack, Diaw and TT). That would be a very big 5 that could switch on everything. Seems like a good fit on the surface to me.
I also agree that Weaver is a mostly known quantity and while he would be decent for us, he will probably only be that, decent for us. Who would we cut to make room for him? Again, Collins probably would be the guy and Collins fills a particular role (3rd PG). Would Weaver be better than Collins for that Role? If not, then who would go? With the roster we have, you have to answer the question of who goes when you argue for adding someone at the same time.

Weaver can play point, he entered the NBA as a PG/SG

We need somebody capable at the point. Weaver's not the answer though. I'm surprised we haven't called Rafer Alston or Josh Boone.
Someone who I'd give a try would be Stanley Robinson. Too bad we didn't have the chance to give him some playing time in camp and preseason.
