And why would KCP want to goto SAC? I mean unless SAC pays him an ungodly amount of money... but why would they do that?

Bogdan seems to be pretty polarizing, but he can create his own shot, break down defenders off the dribble, hit contested shots and plays with a great swagger. Nice addition to any team.

Would be a bad move for the Lakers. Kcp, green, AB and yes, kuzma were all their best wing defenders outside of lebron last season. They’ll be losing all of them and completely losing their defensive identity.

They’ll be great offensively though. Having watched the all offense cavs of recent years I think the Lakers great defense was a much better approach.

Caruso was their best defender by far.

It sounds like weaker D and size for the Lakers and already has started by trading Green and #28 (Desmond Bane?). Bogdan is long, but maybe keeping KCP and Kuzma would be better. I think Bogdan's a better shooter than KCP, but not sure about defense.

Did Bogdan sign an offer sheet with the Hawks?

Yes true. He’s still fairly small though and not ideal for big wings.

Ignoring the Lakers side this doesn't appear to make a lot of sense for Sacramento. Ostensibly they'd be letting Bogdan go in part because they've got too many guards--so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to then pay KCP what they'd need to pay him to agree to the dual S&T.

Lakers need shooting true but they also need defense. Too many cooks in the kitchen. While we still have reliable perimeter defenders in Matthews and Caruso, we shouldn't push it too far either. Even if we do, we do have a coaching staff that will get the best defense out of the composed roster.

The Lakers need a pure shooter more than anything and Bogdon is as close to that. Look at the Finals stats and Lakers got lucky Davis shot lights out because every player outside or Bron and Caruso shot .38 % or less vs Heat who had 1 guy who shot sub .40

Keep KCP. Trade Kuzma for some bags of toilet papers rolls for all I care.

Pelinka and the Lakers have a few Aces/surprises up their sleeve.
