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

    Pelicans have to be shaking their heads...if they would have accepted Magic's midseason offer they would have gotten Kuzma plus more players. Draft picks mean 2-3 years of on the job training. Lakers hiring assasins to rule the league today. Go Lakers!

  • Eric Lee
    Eric Lee 5 months 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

      ME TOOOOOOOOOOO That would be B.I. , "BEASTMODE" Zion , and the most SOLID NBA ready player in this draft RJ Barret which reminds me of T Mac to go along with Frank the Tank Jackson and the MF BEAST everyone has forgotten abt mr. 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..........

    Lakers need to trade for Patrick McCaw, he's a good luck charm and a future hall of famer. Winning a chip next season makes him the only player in history to win 4 chips in his first 4 years in the league. Bam!
