Just listening to Pelinka, it seems like we will sign somebody for that MLE. Let’s see who can guess it right?

my dream scenario is Ibaka at the MLE, Harkless for BAE, Matthews for Min.

Something tells me we might get the twins in LA. Them or Ibaka.

... But I am basing that off gut.

Tough question. My initial reaction is to choose Serge, but he is getting a bit old. Then I think about how we lost Danny Green, KCP opted out, Rondo might not be returning. The Lakers built their identity on defense, so defense shall be targeted with the MLE.

Montrezl Harrell is a good defender right? Thats who I chose. I havent watched the Clippers in a while.

I assume Detroit will offer Wood more than the MLE.

He most definitely isn't hahaha

Realistically, I'd be looking at both Ibaka and Justin Holiday. If we can't get either of them, I'm splitting it between Harkless and one of Dwight/Kieff

FWIW, Baynes would also be an underrated pickup. Stretches the floor and plays very good defense. We'd be able to offer him a starting job too, unlike the Suns

Only issue is age (he's 32), so it'd be a short-term contract

Yeah I think Marcus Morris will be our MLE signing but Pelinka might pull off a shocker and get someone better.

Currently they can only offer a deal starting at 10M

Ibaka would be a good get at the MLE value. Just in terms of talent and fit, in Vogel’s system and AD/Bron complimentary needs.

The pipe signing for me would be Fred Van Fleet FVF ... 4 years full MLE opt out for him after year 3 ... but that is probably 20M less in guaranteed money than he would get elsewhere ergo Pipe

I think most of these options are completely pipe, if we can land another shooter regardless of position I'll be cool with it. Wood and Gallinari are at the top of my list, but I'm realistic that we only have the MLE and might not have the cash to get these guys.
