I've always like option 2 and have thought that team is well balanced. One great versatile player and a host of guys who know their place and roles. Not unlike the Toronto team IMHO.

As for it being blown up and back to square one in 3 years..... That's happening anyway we look at this guys. We are going all in for a chip and then starting over. None of the youth is going to give us as good a shot as LeBron now IMHO. Signing Ingram long term next year would kill us for even longer.

We’re not getting Kwahi, Durant or Klay so are focus needs to be very targeted. There should be only one goal, sign an allstar wing like Butler, Kyrie, Kemba, Middleton and stack up enough assets to make a trade for AD or Bradley Beal. Which means trading Lonzo to the Bulls or Suns for their lottery pick and additional assets. Ideal lineup would include:

Lebron, Kyrie/Kemba/Butler, AD/Beal plus vets and young players to round out the rest of the roster.

Option 2 would be my choice out of those options. We need a C more than anything else.

We currently have Lonzo, Hart, Ingram, Kuzma, James, Bonga, Wagner and Jemmerio Jones under contract.


Sign Caruso and Rondo (MLE)
PG rotation: Ball, Caruso, Rondo

Sign Klay as FA
SG rotation:
Klay, Hart, Bonga

SF rotation: Ingram, James, late 1st rd pick
PF rotation: James, Kuzma, 4th

Sign Nurkic on the cheap. Re-sign McGee on the cheap.

C rotation:
Nurkic, McGee, Wagner


Ball, Caruso, Rondo
Klay, Hart, Bonga
Ingram, late 1st, (James/Kuz/Caruso/Hart/Bonga)
James, Kuzma, 4th
Nurkic, McGee, Wagner

Can we fit that within our cap?

Nurkic isn’t a free agent and is making 12.5 per the next 2 years.

Cool. Then we can probably forget him until the TD or end of season as an expiring.

Best case right now:

- Sign FA Butler
- Trade Ingram, Lonzo, pick 4 for AD
- Sign a guy like Seth Curry for 3m MLE
- Sign a backup PF/C for 1.7m vet min
- Sign a bunch of G-league and vet min shooters

Curry, Butler, LeBron, Kuzma, AD
Bonga, Hart, vet min, Wagner

Why would anyone even want Muscala after what he showed in the few games he did play? I'd much rather bring back McGee and Chandler on the minimum, they can atleast fulfil their roles well enough.

Tyson maybe. I think people were angry about the Zubac trade, he was an ok option as a stretch 4/5.

When he actually got minutes in the last couple weeks of the season he put up: 12 pts, 2.7 3s, 5 rebs, 0.5 stl, 1 blk, 1 to
Had one of the best 3% on the Lakers, reliable FT shooter. His RPM was 87th in the league, McGee was 359th.

But anyway, I just meant a cheap stretch 4/5 option. Tyson would be great as a rim protector.
