We know that Kyrie has expressed some interest in wanting to return to Lebron and play for the Lakers after failing as a leader for the Celtics...there are also reports that Lakers are going after Kemba. Who do you guys think is a better fit with Lebron/AD?

Kawhi, the Lakers would easily win 3 straight rings with Kawhi, LeBron, and Davis and I think LeBron would be 38 years old.

Easily Kyrie. Kyrie is the better player and you already know what he looks like playing alongside LeBron.

I would list Harris as more likely going to Brooklyn with Kyrie. I think Kemba will be targeted by Lakers, but doubt he will go. I could see him staying with the Hornets as a lifer or going to the Knicks as the too most likely possibilities for him. Kyrie I have penciled into Brooklyn.

Kyrie is better but how would he feel not only being second fiddle to Lebron, but third fiddle Lebron and Anthony Davis.

I say Kemba

AD will waive the trade kicker. That puts them at 30% max is they waive Wagner/Bonga if I'm not mistaken. They can offer everyone the max except KD, who's not going there anyway and wouldn't make sense. Kemba might even take a slight discount if it lets them keep/acquire pieces.

Tampering is allready in full mode.

They allready know who they could get and who not. They go after the player they know they can sign.

Kawhi doesn't strike me as the type to join a superteam...also how much can the Lakers even offer Kawhi? The Raptors can offer 5 yrs/190m and the Clippers can offer 4 yrs/140m. So Kawhi would also have to be willing to take a discount just to win some "super-team rings"

i got 27.7 mil if my math is correct, but I did not waive Wagner or Bonga.
