I'd take Davis, and then surround Bron/Davis/Kuz with smaller pieces

Darren Collison/Alex Caruso
Bojan Bogdanovic/Josh Hart
LeBron James/Trevor Ariza
Kyle Kuzma/Jeff Green
Anthony Davis/JaVale McGee

So we got him. Ball, Ingram and Hart. Plus 3 first rounders including our 4 pick. Seems plenty but there's 35 million in cap space to put some pieces in place. 2 year title window officially open.

We did it, gents. And the thread title remains intact :p

Is it just me or would it be better signing depth to surround our two stars? Our combination is arguably the best 1-2 punch in the league, now KD is out for the season, I’d prefer to go the Toronto route now. Something like this would be nice:

Ricky Rubio/Alex Caruso
Bojan Bogdanovic/Bullock or KCP
LeBron James/Trevor Ariza
Kyle Kuzma/Paul Millsap
Anthony Davis/JaVale McGee

So have an awful FO, a terrible post season, a general stink around the franchise, and still land LeBron one year, AD the next.

Must be tough.

There was some discontent last season as to wtf the orgnisation was doing when it traded DAngelo Russell out as he became an all star. I told anyone who'd listen to calm your farms and wait. I was confident that move would result in a championship eventually. Whilst not proven I could be right in 12 months time

Lol don't try and claim the Lakers have done any shrewd business aside from simply being the Lakers....
Charlotte has the last 12 months you've had and they probably fold.

So if a small market team ended up with LeBron, AD, Kuzma and cap space within a year they’d fold? Please

No guarantee to make the playoffs.
Nah, we have the best duo in the league now. Barring injury, I think we’re the best team in the West now that KD and Klay are hurt, whether we get a 3rd max or a bunch of role players (provided we sign the right guys)

I’m excited about our chances

I haven't followed the draft, been too busy. Anything in there for the Lakers?
We bought a 2nd round pick and got a guy called Talen Horton-Tucker. 6'4" with 7'1" wingspan, one of the youngest guys in the draft

Well, he sounds okay, but not pleased to hear his greatest weakness is shooting. That is one area we badly need to improve upon.

Anyone else sweating on the July 6 deadline? Hoping we included in the AD deal, that the trade was to be official 30 July, to allow that cap space to be $32.5M instead of $23.5M.

We've not current favourites for any FA but if KD & Kyrie both go to the Nets, DLo might make his way back and still give is some $$$ to get some decent depth. With Lebron and AD, we just need some shooters. Lebron is going to be the primary ball handler so PG not a necessity. DLo is a nice fit, albeit feels real awkward.
