KL is a FA in 2019, why would you lock this thread.

They have a max slot open now that they've removed Deng from the picture.

Because the Lakers lounge is a place to discuss current players or ones that are rumored to join the team in the short term. Moving it to general discussion would be appropriate for now.

Since when? There was an official LeBron James thread and an official Paul George thread for over a year in the lounge.

Hopefully it becomes apparent that Bonga was Masai Ujiri's pick.

I was just thinking about Jerry West and how the Clip could be competition for Kawhi. Then all of a sudden something click, Jerry West bleeds purple and gold.

Since Jerry got hired by the Clips, Jun 19, 2017 the Clipper downfall started. Maybe Magic n West are chuckling in private and the Clips are just clueless to what is happening.

Jun 26, 2017 - Chris Paul traded (Heart and Soul of the Clippers)
Jun 30, 2017 - Blake Griffin sign Max Contract (Clip for Life) lol
Jan 29, 2018 - Blake Griffin best stud draft pick in there history Traded
Jul 1, 2018 - D Jordan agrees to a free agent deal with Dallas

Paul, Griffin, Jordan = Lou, Beverly, Avery, Tobias, Shai (11th pick) n low Houston 1st round pick.

Way to go Logo (purple and gold)

He probably meant that Deng’s salary would have allowed a KL trade to happen more easily. But with Deng gone, we would have to trade a lot of young guys (whose salaries are relatively low) in order to match salaries with KL’s. That’s probably what he meant. Although, he is still wrong bc we can trade Rondo, Lance, McGee etc at deadline

Not really. After 12/15, could aggregate Rondo/Lance/Beez to get us into the 19m range. Or if KCP gives his consent, could trade him and his 12m as well.

I don’t disagree with moving this thread. We had a stupid Paul George thread here all last season. I’m sure I’ve complained about it the too. People thought he would have been handed to us on a silver platter or something.

If we decide to keep a Kawhi thread here, let’s also start a Durant and a Butler one. I mean, what’s the difference, right?

Well... if you can point out the times KD and Butler's teams said he wanted L.A.
PG and Kawhis teams have said he wanted to be traded and to the Lakers or L A.
I think that warrants a thread here.

The comment section has some interesting real estate tidbits why this news is either something or nothing.

I would buy 7 homes in TO if I lived there for a year and I had 100Ms in the bank

Kawhi may pick signing with Clippers over the Lakers?

Quote:
Shelburne: “When we checked on that back in July, we were told no that (Kawhi Leonard preferring the Lakers to the Clippers) was not accurate - that’s what the Spurs think, but he really does want to be a Laker, but this was before the trade to Toronto. So now he’s in Toronto, and Toronto is pulling out all the stops.”

“I’ve had several people say that the whole Laker mystique doesn’t hold any appeal for Kawhi, that’s not why he wanted to be with the Lakers. He wanted to be with the Lakers because he thought they were closer to winning. Then they went out and got LeBron and several people who know Kawhi, talk to Kawhi say he’s not going to like that, he’s not going to want to play in his shadow. But the people who I actually trust in terms of they matter in his decision making, they said no he still wants to be with the Lakers because they’re closer to winning.”

“Now I don’t know where he is now that he’s in Toronto.”

”I would say (Kawhi’s preference to sign next season): Clippers #1, Toronto #2, Lakers #3... I think it’s fluid, but I would say I don’t think that LeBron and Kawhi have a history together. They’re not friends, Kawhi’s not really friends with anyone.”

"Leonard will not be a Laker"

Now that this is settled we can move on to focusing on this team, this season and worry about free agents next summer.

You would think I would be used to all the annual drama and useless speculation concerning players and the Lakers.

Ramona said a lot....... while saying absolutely nothing! She was all, over the place. We will see next July where his head is at. As of right now, who cares. What in his head now is irrelevant. What's in his head next July is what's important. Have we learned anything for the PG fiasco? We will cross this bridge when it's time. We have an exciting season coming up. Let's enjoy that. Until next summer....f@&$ Kawhi!

Kawhi signing with the Clips would be more idiotic than PG re-upping with the Thunder, and that's saying a lot.

Makes zero sense. Hope Kawhi gets the itch back for competing deep in the playoffs, and also badly longs to be back home.. We’d be the only choice then
He lived with his mom in SA, I’d imagine they’d prefer to be home in LA

Now that Lebron is here, the national media is no longer going to sleep on the Lakers young core...they will soon find out because they will actually be watching Lakers games this season.

Without a doubt, the Lakers will be choosing who they want in summer 2019. No more begging FAs.

Kuz, BI, Lonzo and even Hart will show that they are better than some of the “name” players, imo.
