We have the best future defensive PG already.
We have Ingram whose performance end of season was flat out ridiculous on offense and his defense is perhaps all NBA 2nd team at the three.
FA will net us Leonard or Klay at the two. And as much as I hate it, it’s mist likely true that...
LBJ stays. Which leaves us with a pretty complete starting foursome assuming LBJ plays defense:
PG: Ball SG: Leonard SF: Ingram PF: James
As much as I love how well Kuz plays off of LBJ and how he’s got the eye of the tiger and all of the ways that he can score etc, he is still more valuable to us in a trade as long as LBJ hogs his starting spot. I don’t think we’re trading LBJ unfortunately.
So, to get Zion (the next generational physical freak difference maker a la LBJ) who would be the perfect fit with Lonzo:
Trade Kuzma and the 4th pick for the 1st pick.
It would take Zion doing a “Eli Manning” and refusing to
Sign in NO. I don’t think this has ever happen before in the nba
Or, a straight up trade for LeBron on draft day could work wonders.
