Core of Lonzo/BI, cheap trade piece, Lebron, AD, Kuzma, Hart, Bullock, rookie this season, plus vets
Thats a contender for some years.
I don't want to hear about Jimmy or Kemba. They aren't enough. Maybe we can compete (not a favorite even) for this 1 year or maybe 2, but thats it. Then we're capped out and ****.
1 year deals again if no big move. Just put shooters on the team
Ideally we are signing a Free Agent before any trade. Hopefully, it's a big name (I personally think it's going to be Kawhi). I'd rather bring aboard Jimmy Butler or Kemba Walker and pair them with Lebron and our young core than give away BI or Lonzo or Kuz. That's a good team.
In a worst case scenario, where we don't sign anybody - I'd prefer to do a trade where we absorb a large salary good player for our draft pick (whoever that is) and maybe Josh Hart and/or future pick. I could see a guy like Mike Conley becoming available for a package like that or maybe Jrue Holiday if the Pels end up trading AD to someone else.
