On paper they're about the same, but if they fix the chemistry issues by Harrell and Doc leaving then yeah, they're better.
Lakers improved by a lot though. I think they only downgraded against certain match ups like Denver or Philly (superstar big men)
Are they the same?
Kennard is better than Shamet...if healthy. Clips do have pretty bad luck, so who knows.
But not like Shamet played a ton anyways
Ibaka>Trez come playoff time. Better shooter and defender
Loss of Green hurts their depth a bit, but Patterson is similar
Maybe lose Reggie Jackson? Not sure what will happen there
Yeah, that all seems like a wash to me. I think whatever improvements they show is gonna be because of coaching and/or chemistry
Say it is a wash, the chemistry stuff is big too
We did improve though I believe
Man I wish we had kept Dwight and gotten Ibaka..
KCP, Wes, Lebron, AD, Ibaka,
Dennis, AC, THT?, Kuzma, Dwight
I really don't see how Kuzma fits too much, but he can play more min the games Lebron sits I guess?
Still some decent (realistic) options:
Cook, Forbes (probably wants more than the min), Bazemore
Korver, Craig, Roberson
PF: Illyasova, Kieff
C: Gasol, Dedmon, Baynes
