How about when poster zshawn10 used twitter account “Silver Screen & Roll Twitter account on page 5 of this thread?

How about when poster snaquille oatmeal originally used this source, “Lakeshow World” on page 13 of this thread?

If Lakers take that counter-offer (they should) and providing that they keep BI (they should), who's there in FA that could be had in back court? They'd have their front court set with AD and Bron, but they're hurting at the guard positions. The third star should really be a guard.

Kyrie?
Kemba?
Try to trade BI for Beal? Though that would make them a bit too depleted, maybe...

If that is a true counter offer, and the Lakers get to keep Ingram then that trade needs to happen in the next 10 seconds.


Esshhh...TBH, I think it hurts the Lakers. By trading Kuz instead of BI they would then only have 21M in caps space to add a 3rd piece... Also, they would be Big heavy in a guard league.
C: AD / Wagner
PF: Bron / Bonga
SF: Ingram
SG: ???
PG: ???

No Guard on the roster, and Ingram is really more of a 4. Sounds like a recipe for poor spacing and poor playoff seeding.
Seriously, how much Better is that team than the 17/18 Pelicans?
AD = AD
Cousins/Jrue = Lebron + FA
Mirotic = Ingram

That team got crushed by GSW in the 2nd round.

Don't believe any of those tweets.
Just like last February when everybody was sure AD was gonna be traded to LA and we know how that ended...

No, they had a Prime Boogie and Jrue... How much better do you think a turning 35 y/o Lebron James will be than those 2? Those are certainly better then than Lebron is next year, but the question is how much? Lakers have 21M to fill/surpass that gap...but with who?

They are NOT getting Butler, Harris, Kyrie, Klay, Kemba, etc. with that much... SO you think Redick, Tyreke Evans, or Jeremy Lamb does?

Tatum a decent young player with a potential to become a better player. AD, on the other hand, is a top 10 player now. Take a chance on him and win now and hope he changes his mind. You can always draft more Tatums but it is damn near impossible to get another AD.


He isn't changing his mind on the Celtics. That seems pretty obvious at this stage of the game.


I agree it doesn't seem like he'll change his mind - especially after his father insisted he wouldn't re-sign either. Tatum and Brown are 21 and 22 respectively - I think the direction they should go is to build with them moving forward rather than a 1 year rental whose had a long history of injuries.

Soooo their counter offer is actually a worse offer ? Lol Pelinka wont think twice about that one. Josh was a net negative the entire season , and its a 2 player draft.

Is it possible for the Lakers to free up room to sign a third max contract free agent after trading for Anthony Davis?
