What else can the Los Angeles Lakers do in free agency? | SportsCenter

  • Published on Jun 16, 2019
  • NBA Front Office Insider Bobby Marks says that the Los Angeles Lakers can add a max contract player to their roster if the New Orleans Pelicans are willing to coordinate the timing with them. He also talks about where David Griffin and the Pelicans’ young core will stand after the trade and their presumed number one draft pick Zion Williamson and the changing perception of the Lakers around the league.

    Thing is Lakers trying to rush to a championship which is going to fuck them over at the end... reason why is lebron old ass is about out and that's who they trying to build the team around instead of building around a young upcoming player, like kuzma or Ingram... warriors didnt become great in a day, took them awhile... everybody just wanna pack all stars on one team... wack ass fuck... I personally think Ingram, kuzma and lonzo were a work in progress and had a chance.. Kobe didnt even start off his first 3 years doing good and look what happened.. neither did curry... but they going to do what want

  • Eric Lee
    Eric Lee Month ago

    Couldn’t the Lakers sign KCP to a 3 mill one year deal with the understand that next offseason they will make up for it? Most players would never ever consider trusting a team that much but because of the situation the Lakers are in they would have to honor the deal because if they don’t it would anger Klutch sports and cost them AD re-signing. KCP is worth about 9 mill per year. So let’s say they agree for him to sign a 1 year deal at 3 mill and then next offseason pay the remaining 24 million over 2 years. At that point the Lakers fan go over the cap without it hurting them because they’re ill be over no matter what. They also have Bullocks Bird rights at 4 mill. He too is worth about 9 mill per year. So they would get two guys worth a combined 18 million for only 7 million against the cap. That would leave 18 million left over. Which could go to Bogdanovic. That would be three guys all of which are clearly above average defensively and combined shoot nearly 40 percent from three. I’m not sure if what I brought up is legal or not but if it is that would be awesome

Jahlil Okafor ........... try to trade one of those other 1st round picks and snatch Killa Cam Reddish or make some moves/trades to grab Kyrie Irving , Jaysun Tatum , Luke Kennard , Marvin Bagley , Grayson Allen , Rodney Hood , Seth Curry , Quin Cook , Jabari Parker , Harry Giles , Wendell Carter , Gary Trent jr. , Justice Winslow , Tyus Jones , Austin Rivers , Semi Ojeleye , or one of my Favorite Duke players of all time just because of his HARD WORK , dedication to Duke and his willingness to stay all 4 years and improve every year and be a prime example of what you can become by trusting coach K and the program Mr. HARDWORK himself Amile Jefferson. Then we can have Duke's NBA team lol. if you cant tell im a Duke fan lol. What if a NBA team could somehow acquire all of these players , do you guys think that team would be any good if they could? reply guys and LMK what yall think of my all DUKE squad lol..........

    I feel that the Lakers did very well with this trade but it all comes down to what else they do in free agency and/or trades. Trading ball does get rid of a decent pass first good defensive point guard and now they are somewhat hurting at the pg position. If they are able to even get a decent ball handler that can shoot alongside having Kuzma outside, they have a strong chance of blowing through all of the competition. I do have to say that on offense a tandem of AD and LBJ is something to fear. They will be a handful for any team that they come across.

I’m sure they will sign some other big name free agent as well. All the Lakers do is poach other teams. God forbid they build up a team through the draft like everybody else has to. Just like LA itself the team is a bunch of phonies.

    hmmm....maybe theres a clue in thier names?
    hey check this out: (this is all true and not made up)
    *Meaning Of Thier GOAT Names*
    *Micheal* from Hebrew "one who is Godlike"
    *Jordan* from Hebrew "flows down descends from heaven"
    so *Micheal Jordan* name literally means *"one who is godlike descended from heaven"* THE REAL GOAT
    now lets look at LeFake GOAT
    *LeBron* from Spanish "cowardly, timid"
    *James* from Hebrew it means "supplanter"
    so *LeBron James* name actually means *"cowardly, timid supplanter"* or a pretend GOAT who has to proclaim it himself since 72% of actual modern NBA players voted Jordan GOAT over him. LeBron is the fake self proclaimed GOAT
    ha ha ha! 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😅😅😄 even the name they were given when they were born fits them PERFECTLY!! no joke this is all real
    once again this is not made up. its 100% true. i would look foolish since everybody can check things up on internet now and i dont want to look foolish in front of LeBron fans, who are weak cowardly timid supplanters. instead, i will be godlike and forgive them thier transgressions
