If the lakers get Drummond I’m go say KCP for the win. They were teammates in Detroit and got along good. Pistons saw them as core pieces too with the offers they gave them. KCP just walked away and Drummond couldn’t from that much money which is why he’s in Cleveland now and hasn’t already gotten bought out like Blake.
Drummond would be a one year rental. Then you would have to give him an exemption this coming summer to get any kind of rights on him. It’s a slippery slope when it comes to taking less because he’s a big and as a big he’s go be 29-30 by the time we can really pay him if he chose to come and then stay. I mean the league ain’t about paying bigs anymore so I can see it being ugly on his pockets long term if he placed LA over making Brooklyn pay him their dpe. Heck last year our dpe is the only reason we got Kieff as we paid him more than any protracted vet mins out there.
I think the solution is simple though if you luck out and get him:
Drummond starts and Marc backs him up.
Trez goes down to the 4 and you keep ADs minutes low.
Bron starts and the 10-15 mins behind him goes to Kieff as he’s shown he’s productive with regular time and is a playoff player. Plus he and trez can switch anything.
KCP starts and Kuz splits time with him meaning D and shooting are much improved from the Wes/THT sg backup by committee we have going on where Wes can’t hit a shot and THT is hunted to screw up on D
Dennis and AC handle the pg spot between them
THT, Wes, and Mickinney are 11-13. You suppress the value of tht and offers he may get. You offer Wes up to see if he wants to be traded for regular time or keep him for spots.
