Wayne Ellington and Trevor Ariza are coming home!

Wayne will need to pick another jersey number

Add Bazemore, Monk, Melo and Nunn to the Laker list

But minus Caruso

This kind of reminds me of the Karl Malone era lakers. Lots of old talented vets coming in but does not necessarily make a champion team. Would love to see Westbrook grab a ring

Hope you're right mate. I think everyone wants to see some of the vets get a ring

Baze took WesMath’s number. Fair to say the latter isn’t coming back

Assuming we get one more random signing (I’m hoping a wing defender like James Ennis) plus Dudley. Then we leave a roster spot open for buyouts

So Rondo is back. I like it as a 3rd string PG

Any guesses as to whether we get a wing or a big as our 14th and final roster spot?

Lakers have 5 players who have led a team at some stage - I’m not sure how you squeeze that many egos into one lineup even if two of them are well past their best.

It really is stupid management putting this squad together.

I love watching the team implode like this. I hope they scrape together enough wins to scrape into the finals for a first round loss.

No lottery pick and a team that is even more geriatric next season. It's a fascinating storyline in the Days of our Lives: NBA edition. Provides a good alternative to the Kylie, Ben and Sixers stories.

Whoda thunk LeBron being a GM wouldn't work? What a horribly put together roster. The sad thing thing is most of us with a moderate basketball IQ were 75ish% sure this was going to happen after the Dwight v1.0 and Nash top ups in 2012

Team riddled with injury.

Need time to gel the new group
