That's not depth, they still only have 2 real starters and that 2/3 spot has to be the weakest in the league based on your depth chart


2 real starters :lol:

Lol at worrying about 2021 when they just won a title and have the opportunity to repeat with an improved squad.

All their contracts are tradable if someone like Giannis wants to commit (unlikely).

Grear deal, very productive off season from the Lakers FO.
Key 3&D guy fresh of a championship with a friendly contract, as for the 2021 plan, could always trade him with a contract like that.

I love KCP but they should have offered him a 1 year balloon contract like before.

No Bogdan then.

Knicks or Hawks would've gunned it for KCP with the money they have

this is a solid deal for LA

Joe Harris just got over $20M per. KCP just got $12ish.. seems more than fair

McGee and Caruso are sub-par starters......but having arguably 2 of top 3 players in the NBA helps with that.

I however think Wes Matthews would get the start over Caruso.

Need to keep in mind also that KCP begot Klutch, who begot LeBron, who begot AD... All things considered, KCP has been dirt cheap...
Sure, I would have loved a cheaper deal, but I'm not going to worry about it... Also, as much as I call for KCPs head throughout the season, I think he's actually been pretty under-rated with the lakers... He's accepted a role that I think was beneath him if he played for another franchise. He never says a word about coming off the bench or losing minutes. He works hard and was essential in the playoffs.
In fact, I think I need to shut up about him from now on. ;-)

Not in a world where Joe Harris just got 4/$75M.

KCP was expected to sign between $13M-$15M per.

1 year balloon payment wasn't an option due to Lakers being close to the hard cap. You're also assuming KCP would want to sign another 1 year deal.

Funny that this signing is getting hate from people lol. I mean c’mon, Clips re-signed Morris (the knuckle headed twin, not the good one) for 4 years, 64 mil. Y’all forget about that?

KCP is in his prime and proved himself in the playoffs/finals.
11 titles won in LA in the modern era, while y’all living on “success” from 2 generations ago :lol:

People still haven't realised most roleplayers get worse in the playoffs. Every now and then you get unicorns who raise their level. KCP was one of those. You pay to keep those.

People expect all Pelinka deals to be a Lakers friendly? This is still a good deal for a 3&D wing that was clutch during the playoffs. He is also athletic and still young.

Good for KCP to sign a longer contract this time around. Also no trade clause so if something good comes up, he can be traded.

He was the one guy Lakers really couldnt lose imo even more so than Rondo. Good to have him back. If they trade him, they better hope Ariza or some other defensive wing gets bought out.

Two starters? That's all it took to win a world championship? Amazing.

This is exactly what he should have gotten against the hard cap and them having his bird rights. He probably could have gotten more money from the desperate ass Knicks and the Hawks. Hawks probably moved on to Rondo when KCP came back.

This is literally the perfect deal for KCP in this situation. Lakers are the best run organization IMO. Which is shocking because two years ago they were a mess.
