Interesting. How much more cap room would we need to get PG13 and Lebron on this team, without jettisoning Randle? Not that I think Lebron and this team are a perfect fit, but just wondering.


Either (a) Randle takes the qualifying offer; (b) George opts in as part of a trade to us; (c) one or both of George/Lebron take less than the max; or (d) we trade Deng without getting any salary back.

I think if Randle is worth it to us, we could package Deng to a team like Indiana with some draft picks now that we have the Cleveland pick. Honestly, I'd rather give up Cleveland's 2018 1st rounder and our 2020 1st rounder than lose Randle, and it may not even take that... could be one 1st round pick plus some 2nd round picks.


The thing I'm not sure about is if some team makes Randall a huge offer a minute after the free agency deadline starts, does that erase the cap hold member and make whatever his contract offer is count against cap?


No, but you still only have three days to match the offer after he signs the offer sheet. The thing is though, if the Lakers are working with him, they could just tell him they will match to give them more time to get whatever they need done. Depends on the relationship they have with Randle.

Randle held his own against any center not named embiid this year

What would that team do if they had to play Philly for the championship? Could we get away with double teaming him most of the time?

1) I wouldn’t bet on Philly beating Boston.
2) Randle actually stopped Embiid several times in that last Philly game. It helped put the Lakers in position to win that game, which they did.
3) I don’t see the Lakers having much trouble if they ever have to double any player with that lineup (Ball, George, Ingram, James, Randle) because of how mobile it is. If anything they would probably be one of the best teams in the league at moving their feet defensively when they rotate.

If Randle accepted the QO from the Lakers and became a UFA the following summer, would the Lakers still own his Bird right or could they only resign him with cap space?

This. Fastest team in the league.


I agree, they would punish the front of the rim all night. I really hate it when people think you absolutely have to play like the Warriors to win. They play that way because of the players they have. There will never be another Durant, Curry, Dray, Klay tandem. Just like there will never be another MJ (Kobe came close).

The team that takes the torch from the Warriors will not, I repeat will not play exactly like them.

This theory came to me out of the blue. Windhorst has made a career of finding out what color underwear Lebron is wearing daily. Lebron stated that Windy knows him better than his own mom sometimes. Windy has been spending a lot of time in LA lately. I mean a lot. He and his wife live in Omaha I and they have a new born. What would possess a man with a new born to spend so much time in LA. Why not from Bristol? Why not from NY. Why not from home? Just to be on the Jump with Rachel Nichols? I don't think so.

The only time I've ever seen Windy mad was when he was a the radio with Ireland & Jeff Katz. Jeff Katz basically said he had inside Hollywood information that Lebron is 100% coming to LA. Windhorst lost his mind and started confronting Katz. That was the last time I could remember Katz on ESPNLA. Why was Windhorst so mad about Katz breaking the rumor? Does he know something? Is Lebron to LA the worst kept secret in the world? Is Windhorst prepping for the next step of his career? Moving to LA to cover Lebron one final time?

Some of this is just me having fun. But some of this is just stuff that goes through my mind. Lebron just bought another home in LA, this one 23m. A second home? For what? Reportedly looking for schools. Back home in LA tweets. Magic and Zo love. Burbank TV studios. Maverick and Rich Paul moved out here. Rich Paul dinners with Jeanie. Magic had dinner with Maverick and the next day DLO was gone. KCP Mana from Heaven. The Lakers reportedly weren't going to be active and pushed the timeline back. Then the next day bye Nance, bye Clarkson. Hello 2018 2 Max slots. What's really going on here? And why is Windhorst always in LA these days?

AFireInside,

Anything is possible. The only thing I would say is I don’t think windhorst really knows. Imo Lebron has others that he goes to now (For example, Lee Jenkins).

I do think Windhorst has built up cavs organization contacts, but I don’t think he knows more than us with respect to Lebron’s FA plans. I think Lebron is still thinking about where to go too...he’s just 100% leaving Cleveland.

not commenting on your theory...just the part about Windhorst being in LA to be on the Jump....and how I do think he would travel there often just to be on the Jump....he has always seemed to me to be a guy that would wade through a flood to get his mug on camera. I do not dislike the guy....just think he is kind of living his dream....and loves his TV time and being around TMac and those guys. Also, Lebron and his guys have some respect for Windhorst, but I doubt they would ever leak that type of information to him or anyone. Lebron keeps a tight circle....and they have been extremely loyal to him his entire career....seriously doubt that start leaking news at this point unless they are instructed to by Lebron himself.

Good point. I'd do the same if I could. Just another kid from Akron living his dreams. Lebron, Nance Jr., Steph Curry, now Windy... 😁
