    You gotta admit though. That'd be a pretty dangerous (and deep) team.

    Bev/Reaves (SPJr.)
    Hield/Walker (Christie)
    LBJ/Johnson (TBJr.)
    Davis/JTA (Swider)
    Turner/Jones (Bryant)
    That should be the goal with Kyrie

    I mean, sure you can have those two but remember -- potentially you could ALSO have Ayton/Bridges + picks, then ultimately if Pops gets involved, you could get Nunn/Poetl + more picks.

    A pretty decent team and future flexibility.

    Simmons/Nunn (Mills/Dragic)
    Thomas/xxx
    Bridges/Warren
    O'Neale/xxx
    Ayton/Poetl
    I agree but I’m not the trade expert here. I figure get it over with but again I’m not a negotiator by nature so these things take time.
    It would have to be a sign and trade and it would kick in the hard cap so we can't do it.

    Take care!

    It would be interesting if Patrick Beverley does get traded the Lakers. He will make the games with the Clippers a lot more fun. Don't forget, the Lakers drafted him in 2009 in the second round using the 42nd pick even though he never played with the Lakers.

    Don’t be surprised if we do.

    I think the Gobert move kind of broke the NBA trade market.

    I'm sure the Nets would like to trade Irving also, I just think they have a way longer timeline then we do to trade RWB. IMO they have till next seasons TD, I believe we only have to the start of training camp.

LA people have no patience and won’t tolerate a rebuild. Don’t care what happened yesterday, what are you doing today. That’s the LA mentality. As the owner, what would you do knowing the personality of your fanbase? Just throwing out a different perspective.
    If this is what the FO is thinking then we should just trade LBJ. I'm sure we can get a 2029 1st for him, then we would have two 1sts in 2029.

    It's time to move on from Pelinka. He's a lame duck GM just like Vogel was a lame duck coach last season.
