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

No Bogdan then.

or if they were going to go into 21 cap space then do it for someone better like bogdan


They can still get Bogdan

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.

It helps when Lebron comes and hands you a get out of jail free card.

Giannis joining the Lakers is a pipe dream anyways, I doubt he wants to be hated like Durant while being the 3rd best player on the Lakers.

Especially if the Lakers repeat as the NBA champs, which with the current signings should put us as one of the favorites.

For being a huge reason why the lakers just won a championship, he deserves it. Well earned.

Lakers got KCP back + Wes Matthews with Danny Green money, they got it great. Lakers FO doing very well in the free agency, losing Rondo and D12 will hurt, but they retooled nicely.

I remember reading here players that are going to S/T have to be on a 3 year deal minimum. Perhaps there’s a CBA scientist out there somewhere who could explain this better?

These are the type of posts that have no basis in reality.

“They should’ve done it for Bogdan”

As if the Lakers are in complete control over:

1. The amount Bogdan is asking for
2. The amount the Kings aren’t simply willing to match
3. The Kings asking price to facilitate a sign n trade
4. The amount KCP is asking for and if he’s even willing to go to Sacramento to make the trade work

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

only had 2 real starters last season too, worked out ok

He's not a starting caliber player on most teams. Decent 3 and D guard. I guess the Lakers don't want to rock the boat too much.

Joining Klutch early on was the smartest decision of KCP’s career.

agreed here, miscommunication but i don't think Harrell happens with Howard back, would've rather done Howard n say Crowder on his mle deal

Yeah, I'm sure it's so hard to run a team in LA. It's not like Superstars go there even when they suck. :roll:

No, they're far from the "best run organization." They just happen to be in the area most young athletes want to go. They do a good job of taking advantage of their situation, but if they were based in San Antonio, Utah, or Oklahoma, they wouldn't be as well run as those teams currently are.

Crucial signing. A bit steep, but honestly they needed KCP back. If he is consistently doing the things he did in the finals all next season this turns into a steal honestly.

championship starter who hits threes and defends. i don’t see how 13 million a year for three seasons is an overpay.

Then why did the Lakers have so many losing seasons? If it's where young players want to go? If it's that easy? Why were they in the lottery 2014 to 2018?

If you don’t think there are large, inherent perks, to being the Lakers organization, comparative nearly any other team in the league, I don’t know what to say.

While I think it is a bit over-blown at times, you never have stars turning down good situations basketball wise, simply because they don’t want to leave where the team is located.

I think we will add another c with mle.

You will also change your stance on Harrell once he starts scoring and rebounding in bunches for the team. He is going to be a fan favorite.

Next year we won’t get out scored and when Bron rests, we are going to still kill it with Schröder, AD and Harrell. This is a super, super deadly team. Just need supporting mle casts (wing, guard and center).

It’s not even going to be fair at times.
