    been saying that. its obvious. Lebron is not the same player he once was. He can talk about his broad shoulders but father time is undefeated.

    Westbrook is a realistic option but the fit may be an issue. All time worst free throw shooting team and dont help in shooting 3s. They would need to sign a bunch of vet min.


    Drummond, Gasol
    Davis, Portis
    Lebron, James Ennis, Mckinnie
    Toney Snell, Lou Williams
    Westbrook, Caruso

    Lakers could land some of these shooters

    PJ Tucker
    Lou Williams
    Reggie Bullock
    JJ Redick

    Wesley Mathews is already here.

    Lakers bring in Westbrook then these guys come to win a championship oppose to wanting to get paid.

    PJ Tucker remains with the possible new champs Bucks.
    Lou Williams is a possibility.
    Reggie Bullock stays with NY.
    JJ Redick is done.

    Wesley Mathews is gone!

    Lakers bring in a star that can shoot threes and is a pretty good pg. then these guys come to win a championship oppose to wanting to get paid.
    Williams might be willing to return and stick it to the neighbors. Lowry could come if him and Toronto want Dennis and THT with a S&T. This is just an example on how Lakers could possibly bring a vet star pg. Kubmass, KCP and Harrell could be along with Gasol be traded to make the second unit better.
    Drummond?Gasol?
    Davis, ? Morris?
    Lebron, ?
    Williams?,Wesley?
    Lowry? Caruso?
    We will have a long summer!
    Soon to be seen together!

    AD can't even stay on his feet, if he's asked to lead we will continue to be a low seed play-offs team exiting in the 1st round.

    Wouldn't be the worst use of tax payer MLE

    Lights out 3PT shooter in reg season & playoffs, competed on defeense. Age 32, has some good years left for sure

    FYI: TPMLE is projected at $5.9 million
    I like Mills with the vet min. No way for our TMLE. IMO we have to use the TMLE like a draft pick, sign the best player available that will accept the TMLE. No matter the position.

    Pipe Dream:
    1. DeRozan
    2. Lowry
    3. Fournier

    Getting a bit realistic:
    4. Porter
    5. Drummond
    6. Conley

    You never know:
    7. Olidipo
    8. Dragic
    9. McConnell
    10. Tim Hardaway Jr

    Not sure it's doable but the only way Zo comes back is probably a 2+1 with a PO after year 2. He gets paid as soon as LBJ's contract expires........ the FO decides to unload the contracts of Kuz/KCP for future picks this offseason.

    He'll probably get a Schroder type of deal next season.
    2+1? For how much? He's looking for $20+ million.

    You suggesting he sign for cheap with us and get paid in the future? He's a RFA so NO can match. If he signs anywhere for cheap NO will definately match.

    Wishful thinking and If he wasn't Klutch then I'd lose hope. You have to at least assume LBJ and Rich Paul will have a say on Lonzo and his future

    The Los Angeles Lakers are going to have to get creative this offseason to make a major addition to their roster. Bleacher Report’s Greg Swartz suggests the Lakers make a run at Pistons bucket-getter Jerami Grant. Swartz’s proposal has the Lakers dangling Kyle Kuzma, the No. 22 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and two future second-round picks (2023, 2024) in exchange for Grant.

    The selling point for the Lakers is obvious as the team lands a legitimate third scorer to play next to LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Kuzma’s upside has prompted plenty of intrigue around the league, but the Lakers forward’s inconsistent play in the postseason was glaring. Grant was a top-30 NBA scorer this season averaging 22.3 points while adding 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 54 starts for the Pistons.

    There are a couple of notes about the proposal to make it a realistic option. Even with nine free agents, the Lakers will not have cap space and would need to add more salary to the deal to make it work. Grant’s $20 million salary next season is about $7 million more than Kuzma, meaning the Lakers would need to add players to make the trade viable within the cap rules. The Lakers also cannot trade this year’s first-rounder until after the draft.

    I dont think that offer gets Grant but if we do, then we got a great complementary player to Lebron and AD.

    Since any Lakers fan would sign to it, it can't be realistic...

    It'll be the steal of the year if that happens. Hometown Kuz and picks certainly won't be enough. Won't think twice if they ask for THT, #22, Kuz and Trez if he agrees to a S/T with a third team involved.

    Gotta make the Pistons realize that if they're gona go on a full rebuild, this offseason would be the best time to do it especially since they're projected to acquire a lotto pick. Something like Kuz/Pat Williams goes to DET, Trez and two CHICAGO homecomers in THT/Okafor goes to the Bulls.

    Stewart/Plumlee
    Kuz/Williams
    Bey/Jackson
    #4 Green/Diallo
    Hayes/Joseph

    Vuc/Okafor
    Trez/Aminu
    Young/Satoransky
    LaVine/THT
    UFA/White
