    As far as predictions go, LA finds a trade partner in the ATL Hawks for Deng. Hawks will have traded several of their 4 picks to move up in the draft and they will acquire 2 more picks for Deng as well in exchange for cap space. LA signs Randle and acquires LBJ and PG13.
    I really want you to be right on this one. I said 7 seed due to DMC coming back in the middle of the year and just getting in shape for the playoffs. If healthy then sure we can be higher

Even if it's just to see if he comes back healthy they will have a great trade chip.
    Ya I see Brooklin being dumb enough to offer him a multi year deal.

    The all in prediction

    PG13 opts in and the following trade with OKC happens (Deng out, Kuzma out, 2020 1st out)

    LBJ Signs for slightly less than max

    Lopez resigns for the vet min

    KCP or Reddick sign for the BAE

    Randle is matched for around $17 million per year (used in a trade at the deadline)

    This trade here with OKC is realistic. I don't think it happens but it sure is better then the Deng, Zubac and a 1st you talked about awhile back. Or was it Zubac and a couple of 2nds lol?

    There are good predictions though. Just off the top of my head it looks like the #s work.

    Gonna be an interesting summer

    2 firsts in the past Ö but I think only way OKC will do it is by getting a young player instead of 2 firsts because they know how good kuzma already has performed.

    Gonna be fun.... the only thing I would consider a failure is if we don't sign PG13 and then turn around and sign a couple of mid-tier guys to multi-year deals...

    I will even be OK if we don't get a big name and just re-sign a couple of guys and take on some bad deals for picks from other teams.

    pretty sure it will be hard for Maginka to **** this up

    Honestly, watch out for the lakers trading deng. Itís going unnoticed but when we had so many injuries late in the season, questions arose why we werenít playing deng and they said that they didnít wanna risk him being injured as they will try to trade him in the off season.

    My prediction is we get another pick via Denver. We absorb Faried's contract and get #14. We trade two of our other picks to move up (25+47 for Minny's #20).

    Draft night: #14 - Donte DiVicenzo and #20 - Moritz Wagner (Gelo Ball goes undrafted and is signed - 2 way)
    Free Agency: Paul George is signed / Julius Randle is resigned (Brook Lopez is also signed for whatever is left)

    Tip-off:
    Lopez/Wagner
    Randle/Kuzma
    George/G.Ball
    Ingram/Hart
    L.Ball/DiVicenzo
    Lakers worked out Lonnie Walker who's projected to go right around that Denver pick at #14

    Wow, Faried's contract ends next season. That is an interesting potential trade for us to target depending on what we do.

    HOLY ****
