We already have our Big 4 if you add Kuzma to the party.
There’s no doubt in my mind about this:
Lonzo, future all-star; Ingram, future all-star; Kuzma, future all-star; James, perennial all-star. Is being an all-star what merits a player as a ‘Big..’ member?
Get us Vucevic or Nurkic or better at the C, allow the kids another season to grow. I’m sure they’re dying to show the league what they are becoming.
If we get Leonard or Klay, we’d be stupid not to package one of Kuz or Ingram with the 4th pick and fillers for a top five Center.
Lonzo, Leonard, Ingram, James, Vucevic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Leonard, James, Kuzma, Nurkic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Klay, Ingram, James, Vucevic (AD/Zion)
Lonzo, Klay, James, Kuzma, Nurkic (AD/Zion)
Either lineup is a contender, assuming a healthy roster.
Im down for some fantasy play. Rob Pelinka has some work to do to get this team assembled...
Kyrie, Klay, Leonard, KD, AD.
We trade Lebron & the current to acquire the above players.
Even any of these lineups would be a contender.
Lonzo, Leonard, Ingram, James, JMG/Wagner
Lonzo, Leonard, James, Kuzma, JMG/Wagner
Lonzo, Klay, Ingram, James, JMG/Wagner
Lonzo, Klay, James, Kuzma, JMG/Wagner
Not exactly fantasy play. The idea being that we trade either Ingram or Kuzma with the number 4 pick and filler for the best center we can get. Kuzma behind James at the four means limited minutes for Kuz.
But yeah, if we get Leonard or Durant I’d trade Bron together with the 4th pick for AD in a second and keep both Kuz and Ingram.
