Houston would certainly pull the trigger on a McGee/Kuz deal for PJ Tucker wouldn't they?

- re-sign KCP
- Split MLE with Harkless, Wes Matthews (unless Gallo wants to take an MLE)
- Re-sign Morris with BAE
- Melo as a vet minimum
- Bring back Dwight, around $3M

PG: Shroder/Caruso/THT
SG: KCP/Bradley/Matthews
SF: LeBron/Harkless/
PF: AD/Morris/Melo
C: Tucker/Dwight

Why the **** would you give up the best player in the deal? Kuzmas offense and defense numbers were better in the series, he is younger, cost less, and doesn't have a beat up body because he got played at the 5. You essentially tell AD **** his body, what worked and play Center too if Tucker is starting art the 5.

And for anyoen saying Mo Harkless, did you miss teams giving him the leave him open and dare them to shoot in Portland which is why he was let go anyhow. And Melo clearly outplayed the Min salary in the bubble

2 first round picks for Covington?
Clearly the value of firsts has been inflated.

Well, Bucks are certainly doing all they can to keep Giannis. They just landed Bogdan Bogdanovic from Sacramento. We might want to reconsider our 2021 free agency strategy.

Giannis is going nowhere. Bucks just mortgaged the future for him.

PJ Tucker should be a must

Then trade Kuzma for a good wing that can shoot and defend and we good

Am I the only one who doesn't think Covington is that good? I honestly can't remember more than a couple of good games that I've ever seen him play. He is a versatile 3 and D, which is good, but man, two first round picks for him is just crazy.

Can still call Rich Paul to get Jerami Grant for Green's salary, as the Schroeder deal is not through.

Sign Justin Holiday & PJ Tucker for the MLE + any combo of McGee, Cook & Kuz.

That team will slap the Nets + Harden team around, if it ends up happening.

Would love it if George Hill gets bought out and we pick him for cheap. I've always been a fan of his game.

I read that Houston is trading Covington to Portland for Ariza. What are the chances that Ariza gets bought out.... then sign with a contender?

As they say "the grass is always greener on the other side..." Markieff Morris shot 42% in the playoffs for the Lakers from the 3pt area with an ORTG of 113/100 possessions. He is a free agent though and may ask for more $ and arguably Tucker plays better defense.
I wish Vogel had better sets to maximize Kuzma's talent but I'm afraid, his stocks are falling and his future seems like not that bright for the Lakers.

Lakers Trade:
Kyle Kuzma
Javale Mcgee
Quinn Cook

Rockets Trade:
PJ Tucker
Daniel House

Lakers improve defensively and add some shooting with house. Rockets get younger with Kuz. I think lakers may have to add in a pick?

Ew at trading kuz for tucker

James ennis is now a FA who I think would be everything we need in a cheap wing. I rather see our options at the deadline regarding kuz.we are going to need his creating ability if ,lebron is to rest early on, not to mention he might get a boost in value for that same reason.

This is assuming they get to the finals, what if they get bounced again before then?
