We need to go out and get Morris if he opts out of his deal. With Lebron as a P.G, i can't see how we can't go out and get another P.F. rework the KCP deal if we must (or let him go entirely since we have Bradley) but we need him. He can play the 3 and 4 and we're lacking in both with Lebron at P.G.

Lebron
Green
Morris
Kuzma/A.D.
A.D./McGee

is way better than what we're currently rolling with.

By reworking some deals we could have it tbh. We'd need to ditch KCP or Bradley or both (which tbh i'm fine with since we need more forwards rather than more guards).

What's up with the Knicks? Are they going to roll with a roster full of power forwards? Must be stocking assets for the trade deadline.

This is not my favorite Lakers team by any stretch of the imagination but... it is definitely a team that can win with a little luck in the injury department.

Even better the Clippers are favored. That’s going to make winning that much sweeter!
Sometimes being wrong is awesome!!! :D

Isn’t KCP a Klutch soldier? If Lebron Inc./Klutch/Pelinka can get rid of him in a trade that helps the team, while Kcp can have a bigger role elsewhere, he won’t bite the teat that’s fed him.

On the other side of the debate, we dont bite the hand that feeds us. Keep klutch clients happy, and we Keep AD for life.

Yeah, I'm sure if all those things line up, he'd accept the trade... That said, Klutch is not going to help us move him unless it's the ideal situation for him... And right now, I feel like KCP and Klutch both feel like playing for us is the best situation for him...

Trading KCP, while technically possible, just seems so unlikely that it's hardly worth thinking about.
For what he brings to the table, I'm sure most teams wouldn't even want the bother of trying to make a deal work.
It'd almost have to be KCP himself trying to get out of LA to make it happen. Just don't see it...

we can hold off on a minimum deal or two for now to bring in Morris (maybe delay the official Bradley signing).

Better than signing on a below average player like KCP for two more years.

This whole principle is fn stupid.

1 - KCP is better than Morris and has been most his career, especially defensively a

2 - Morris doesn’t want to be a laker as he laughed at the thought on Twitter

3 - Pelinka isn’t looking bad or making Jeanie look bad by taking away a deal from a laker whose been here going on 3 years, hasn’t caused a problem, and who hasn’t failed a physical

4 - Rich Paul and Klutch isn’t **** over one client in KCP for another client in Morris and costing himself

What's with the hate I mean do you expect KCP to be featured in the offense? He'll focus on shutting down opposing PGs and SGs that can't bully him down low. It's not like he'll play the whole 48 minutes. And he had a resurgence late in the RS and it's possible he'll build on that.

He's a specialist, my goodness. Some of you act like we overpaid for an underachieving/going down hill, has been superstar to save the franchise. C'mon.
