It would have to be very protected. Between JV (who our team really likes), JJJ, and Clarke we have most of our PF/C minutes covered. We know that our window to contend isn't now so even though LA is a sizeable upgrade over Dieng I'm not sure how much we'd be willing to give to make it happen. It would stealthily clear more 2021 cap for us though which may be the biggest selling point to our FO.
The most I see us maybe giving is a 2021 1st Top 20 protected and then turns into 2nds. Basically if LA pushes us over the edge enough to finish top10 then they get the pick and if he doesn't then we send two 2nds instead. I'm not sure if SAS goes for that. Feels like they'd have a better option even if it isn't significantly better. Memphis though likes JV's rebounding next to JJJ and Dieng is a solid backup plus LA taking a backseat to young guys or heck maybe even coming off the bench at times could potentially cause locker room problems if he gets upset.
