I guess I value Roy Hibbert as a player higher than u do and u value Giorgui Dieng higher than I do!
Ok, Roy Hibbert had a bad season with a bad team, but let's don't forget his last 2 seasons with the Pacers.

Anyway, telling me that Minnesota will have 0 interest on Roy Hibbert + Brandon Bass or Tarik Black is just st*pid!
How r u so sure?
R u the GM of Minnesota?

I put on the table Pekovic + Hibbert + Bass or Black.
A great frontline that every team would like to have.

Why Minnesota would like Pekovic + Dieng more than that?
Speak with arguments.

This coming draft and free agency period is driving us, the Laker Fans crazy.
But as time goes by, I finally realized, Hey Dude! Come back to reality.
Probable Trade:
DeMarcus Cousins - LA 1st Round Pick (1-3) + Randle + Louis Williams (Cannot Trade Russel as he will play starting PG)
Jimmy Butler - 1st Round Pick + Russel + Clarkson
Shabazz Muhammad - 32nd Pick + Nick Young
Free Agency Overview:
Harrison Barnes: Max contract - Versatile in SF Position, can score, rebound, defend and hardworking.
Kevin Durant: Max contract - Outstanding scoring ability, very mobile with his height advantage and always have a mismatch at SF position, decent defender
DeMar Derozan: Max Contract - Good offensive awareness, Perimeter Defender and Athletic
Hassan Whiteside: Max contract - Outstanding Shot blocker, Very good defensive, Poor Free Throw Accuracy
Al Horford: Max Contract - Decent scoring, good low post defender, good perimeter shooter and high FG percentage
David Lee: 2 + 1 Team Option - You can say everything bad about him but still, he's a veteran with good moves at the bottom. Can play well if in good health condition although he might be a risk but should be offered lower than 10 million USD
Festus Ezeli: 3 + 1 Team Option - Decent Post Defender, Hardworking rebounder, Athletic, could excel if given a starting role and more minutes
Re-sign:
Jordan Clarkson - Good Potential, Offense minded player, Athletic but lacks Defensive posture against Guards
Marcelo Huertas - Decent Backup PG with good passing skills, also cheap
Tarik Black - Very Athletic, though a little short if put into C position but a very hard working guy
MY FINAL LAKERS TEAM:
PG: Russel, Huertas,
SG: DeRozan, Clarkson
SF: Barnes, Muhammad, Brown
PF: Cousins, Lee, Nance
C: Ezeli, Black.

Here my last dream scenario for Lakers. It's just there positioning there in plus the golden state dominance. So other stars could easily team up there!


James signs Max two year deal with player option with cavs.
Durant does same with thunder.
So Lakers just sign a few veterans to sizable one year deals. Like Hibert, JJ Hickson, and joe Johnson who loves money. sign a back up pg it one year. Draft Ingram. draft SG 32. Resign clarkson to whatever. Trade Russell for noel. Lakers give up allot but Noel improved a lot so they value him and get a pg of the future and Philly can take on Williams for laundry. Waive laundry
Clarkson/ back up
Johnson/ 32
Ingram/ young
Hickson/ Nance
Hilbert/ _noel
Second unit will get a lot of pt to try and catch up. This team would suck and maybe have injuries and could trade Johnson at deadline.
Lakers get number 3 pick in 2017. get tatum from Duke. Here where the unexpected come in at. Lakers could stretch young over as 1.4 per year. Lakers would have young, clarkson, ingram, Nance, Noel, pick 32, and tatum. That would be about 85 mil in cap because in 2017 cap jump to 108. sign James and durant two year deals worth 27.5 each year then max increase next season. Sign Paul to 21.5 two year contract and Max increase second year. Then d Wade get rest with max increase in second year.
Paul/ clarkson
Wade/ Tatum
Durant/ Ingram
James/ Nance
Noel/ Nance
This scenario only about getting players to play together and could top warriors easily. Would have a great bench and great future.

Now lakers have more money than before about 70 mill and cousins is on are roster.

Keep brown Williams
Pg Russell vet someone worth 3-4 mill heurtus
Sg derozan Williams

Trade that pick we got from King their 2nd round pick #40 and nick young for pick 30-36 now have another 6 mill this team bring great length and able to stretch the court best way Jim buss can keep his job is to pull this off its great because when gasols deal is up we can give cousins a max deal.

Lakers team if things don't go to plan.

This could be pretty long so bare with me. I am also prepared for dislikes as I feel a lot of people think we can do better, but I'm just trying to think of all scenarios.

Draft Ingram and Payton II, Trade Young/ Williams for picks, don't resign Kelly/ Sacre.

This is a team I would put together if the lakers are unable to attract 2 big FA's. I can see KD, Derozan and Barnes staying with their respected teams for a variety of reasons. However I do feel like Whiteside (Heat not offering Max) or Ezeli (wanting a bigger role) may be leaving their teams, these are two players that could help the team out big time, even if they aren't on a 'superstar' level.

Next thing, with the Lakers hiring Luke as their coach, it is important that the teams looks to bring in players that fit the system that he is looking to use, which from what I have heard is similar to what the warriors have used (I'm sure people know what that involves on OFF &DEF. Saying that, here are the free agents I would aim for.

Whiteside/ Ezeli- either of these players are great fits next to Randle, due to his inability to defend the rim, where as offensively, Randle (with a hopefully improved jumpshot) can make up for the 2 named FA's shortcomings on offense.

Lee/ Bazemore- both these players are athletic and able to defend well, being able to pick up the oppositions best offensive player. Both have shown that they are also capable of stretching the floor.

Jennings- an LA guy, great offensive player who can get hot quickly, could be a nice 6th man. Could use a 1 or 2 year deal to show the league what he is made of after a injury hit/ disappointing 1 and a 1/2 seasons.

Rush- having come off of a few injury struck seasons, Rush played well when called upon by Kerr this season. Shooting approximately 47% from 3 point range, he is an absolute sniper and would be a nice bench boost.

Mozgov- having lost his starting spot to Thompson, he has found playing time tough to find. At 7ft tall, he can help the bench rim protection, something we missed when Hibbert wasn't on the floor this past season.

Yes, this team probably won't win a championship next year, but it is, in my opinion, pretty realistic. Only Whiteside/ Bazemore would cost the franchise a considerable amount of money, the rest of the players are veterans who can come in a steady the team on relatively cheap and short contracts, whilst also fitting the system I believe Luke will put in place.

Final team.
Russell/ Jennings/ Payton II
Clarkson/ Rush
Ingram/ Bazemore or Lee/ Brown
Randle/ Nance
Whiteside or Ezeli/ Mozgov/ Black
