Quote:
"For the Lakers, they are pretty confident and have a great deal of belief that they're in position to get Paul George in 2018 whether he stays in Indiana or he's traded elsewhere."

"The Lakers don't have to give assets up to go and try to trade for him. In fact, I think they have been encouraged to do just the opposite. If Paul George goes there, he wants them to have assets, he wants them to be as good of a team as they can when he walks in."


Woj.

Maybe this explains Magic's sudden turn of events. Maybe PG13's camp reached out and told Magic to save up cap space and not trade away the core pieces for him.

I also think having a clever and long tenured basketball guy like Rob ultimately helps. He will be key moving forward.

Foston selects Ball and we select Fultz and we get Ball for free 5 years later just like how we're gonna get PG13 for free next year.

This was floated out (and many here suspected from PG13's camp) during the trade deadline too so it's not surprising. I never bought the notion that we'd give up the farm for PG13 in light of that fact. Strangely a lot of peeps forgot.

Can have a loaded team if we keep young core due to rookie deals. Add PG and maybe another all star if we can create cap space by trading Deng and JC in 2018. Maybe #28 we pick this year and Top 5 protected 2019 pick would be enough to offload Deng if PG and another all star commits.

It's obvious the Lakers want two max guys in 2018, doubt they make a major deal this summer. However, they're going to have to shed those dumb contracts to Moz/Deng. May cost them guys like Clarkson/Nance/28th pick/Randle.

No one will take those deals without an asset. Losing Clarkson would also provide cap space.

Clarkson/Moz or Deng/and Nance for expiring contracts is a type of deal that may happen.

Knicks are looking to build now around Porzingis. Not make side way moves.
