If we strike out on Kawhi, trade it in package for AD for sure.

I’d rather wait to see if we can add Kawhi or Kyrie without giving up anyone before considering trading for AD. I also really like the idea of drafting Darius Garland.

That would take trading most of team minus LeBron to create enough cap space to be able to absorb ADs contract while adding another max player. Would end up being like a 6 or 7 for 1 deal. I don’t see that happening.

Make the pick. Wait until after free agency is over. If we sign a max guy, then try to package the pick. If we don't land a max star then keep the pick

Exactly. Good point.

Even if we cant trade for AD we can always lets say trade for Beal or someone like that.
LBJ
Kawhi
Beal

Just and idea.

1. Trade for AD or Beal or Sign and trade for Kawhi

Something like Ingram, Kuz, Hart #4, +fillers for AD.

Offer the same for Kawhi (if he wants to come to LA, he'd get more money this way via a S&T)

Offer less for Beal.

2. Sign a max free agent (Kawhi/KD/Klay/Butler). I realize most of those are longshots, except Butler.

3. Roll out a potential line up of Lonzo, Lebron, AD+ max free agent.

I'd keep Lonzo out of the 4 young ones. Need a point guard to distribute the ball to all that incoming talent.

Best choice is to sign a max guy and draft Garland IMO.

If healthy Ball would have 20 assists per game with that team.

I think the Pelicans are still going to try and be dicks about this and ask for most of our young core in addition to the pick. They will use NYK and others as leverage. I say keep the pick and try to sign a max FA.

LeBron + Max FA + Aging "young" core is enough to have a shot at the finals. The #4 pick can take next year to develop for when LeBron declines, or, with luck, step into some kind of contributory role from the start.

LeBron + AD is nice, but I would question our depth. AD is prone to nagging injuries and LeBron is going to be 35, so I'd prefer to have our productive capabilities spread out a bit more. Having Kuz/Zo/Hart/BI accomplishes that. And make so mistake, the Pels will ask for at least 3 out of those 4.

Simple. They can go and feck off. I would give them No.4 + one of 4. Thats it. Take it or leave it.

Did I miss something?

When did Beal become available?

When did NO change their minds on doing business with the Lakers?

Not how it would work.

Lakers would sign a Max player, then need trade ~22m in salary to get AD. That could be the #4 pick (after 30 days), Ingram and Ball.

Say Washington would do Beal for 4+Kuzma.

Is this a championship contending team?

Lonzo
Beal
Ingram
Lebron
Hart
Wagner

+ ~17m in cap space?

Assuming we strike out on Kawhi, I would trade the pick, Ingram, Kuzma, and Hart for AD. Then sign Klay Thompson.

Lonzo
Klay
Lebron
AD

Ditto.

Not giving #4, '21 1st, "23 1st, '25 1st plus

Lonzo, BI, Kuz, and Hart for AD.

Pels were total pricks last time around.
