i think the lakers should pursue Trevor Ariza & derrick rose as bench guys possible starters depending on the rest of the roster

They didn’t want him this season... idk why would they want him now.
Porzingis&Doncic will be the white and more dominant version of Kobe&Shaq.

There are some nice retirement homes in LA.

You probably need to take him. How many vet minimums will be available?
In '03-'04, Jerry Sloan coached the ESPN predicted "worst team of all time" to 42-40.

Just two days after the Finals , the Lakers left Lonzo’s shooting woes, Ingram’s questionable health issue... and Lavar Ball Era goes to Mardi Gras

Max Butler.

Lebron>simmons
Butler=Butler
Kuzma <=Tobias
AD>Embiid

So a better 76ers. Then fill the bench using exceptions and vet mins on Seth Curry, Noah, Melo, Ariza, etc.
— 1+ game is more than a big enough sample size
BOLD PREDICTIONS
—Bulls 46 win 6 seed in the east, One of Nets, Celtics, Raptors Miss playoffs
—Wolves (dark horse for playoffs) 46-48 win season.
—No Cali teams make the WCFs

Done Deal. This isn’t last year trying to deal with chemistry issues and young guys fitting in with LeBron. He comes in for a full training camp and gives you points off the bench.

Couldn't produce on a vet team off the bench where all he needed to do was shoot 3's and had a full training camp last year. He isn't going to be any better a year out of the game

Nobody wanted him last year. Will be same again this year.

Melo would rather carry the Shanghai Sharks as the first option than be a role player for the Lakers. Geez! I hope I’m wrong...

I would love melo getting like a ten day or something as a sort of try out. He doesn't seem to be in great shape right now, though I could be wrong about that. Like in nba player level shape.
