    AD and LBJ are basically Ray Lewis and Ed Reed on defense when both are locked in. And now Harrell with a 7'4" wingspan gets to play alongside them and fill lanes in transition when they get stops on the defensive end. So crazy

    Vogel said they were a fast breaking team, but this is about to be next level with Schroder and Harrell joining a defensive minded team. Harrell may end up being reminiscent of Worthy running the floor, catching and finishing. My mind is blown

    The Lakers are reportedly pursuing a sign-and-trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic

    Legion Hoops@LegionHoops
    The defending champs aren’t done yet: the Lakers are still pursuing BogdanBogdanovic in a sign-and-trade deal with the Kings, reports @KevinOConnorNBA

    Kyle Kuzma and/or KCP would be sent to Sacramento in the proposed deal.









    Can they get it done?

    In January, I reported that the Lakers had trade talks with the Kings, who offered Nemanja Bjelica and a pick to the Lakers for Kyle Kuzma, and Los Angeles countered by asking for Bogdan Bogdanovic. L.A.’s pursuit hasn’t stopped. On Friday, The Athletic’s Sam Amick and Eric Nehm reported that the Lakers are pursuing a sign-and-trade for Bogdanovic, who’s sign-and-trade deal to the Bucks fell apart. League sources confirmed the report: The Lakers are indeed pursuing Bogdanovic, though the Hawks are considered the favorites.

    The Kings may not have wanted to trade Bogdanovic to the Lakers before the deadline, but now they don’t have much of a choice. The alternative is losing him to the Hawks (or another team with cap space such as the Knicks), to an offer sheet that’s more than they’d like to spend, multiple league sources say. Of course, the Kings could match any offer sheet he receives. But they just drafted a guard in Tyrese Haliburton, gave $163 million to De’Aaron Fox, and still have a disgruntled Buddy Hield. Maybe, just maybe, the Kings would be better off taking KCP and Kuzma even if it means helping their interstate rivals get better.

    They building a great team around Caruso.

    PG: Schroder
    SG: Caruso
    SF: LeBron
    PF: AD,
    C : Montrezl

    Montrezls grandma died before the playoffs.
    He lost his spirit.
    Should get it back with the Lakers.
    Plus he probably dislikes the Clippers.

    The team is already set.
    Whatever other bench players they put around these guys it doesn't really matter that much.
    They got a #3 and #4 options that are both capable of scoring 20 points a game if needed.
    Kuzma for Bogie gives you a complete 5 star starting lineup. Crazy.

    Wouldn't mind taking a flyer on Nic Batum if they do indeed decide to move on from Kuz. If Batum is healthy that is

    Ariza's been traded like 5 times in the last couple weeks. Smh He'd have the last laugh if he gets bought out and lands home with LAL for another chip

    Rondo to the Hawks. Pulled the rug out from under Skip Bayless and his agenda Lol Now he's gonna tell us why Rondo is a coward Smh Can't believe Rondo didn't wanna team with Beverley and Lou Williams in a 3 guard lineup with a trio of 6'0" guys. Can't believe he didn't want to counsel George game to game

    Rondo knows that losing with the Clips is a blemish on an already HOF resume. No need to do all that..just stay a Laker hero 4 life. Sure he also wants to start coaching and it'd be nice to say, " I mentored Trey Young " in interviews for coaching gigs in the future

    Happy to have KCP back. Would've been happier to land Bogi, but it's a solid contract for KCP nonetheless..2 years and a partially guaranteed 3rd year. Tradable contract if something comes along. And there's probably something to be said of having a quality role player return when you've added a couple guys in Harrell and Schroder that take their share of shots

    Need to add a heavy body at center now..still like Aron Baynes for that unless somehow Marc Gasol wants to return to the team that drafted him and made his bro a Hall of Famer. Stein says Marc Gasol is in play for LAL..would be a better pick up than Cousins for what's needed surrounding shot thirsty Harrell/Schroder/Kuz on the bench

    Either Gasol or Boogie would be fine (assuming Boogie can join the team healthy as soon as he can). But I don’t think Gasol is coming on a vet min contract. Lakers would have to do some finagling. Boogie might just come on a vet min for one more chance at a ring. I also think a healthy Boogie is more versatile than Gasol.

    Pelinka trying to trade Javale McGee and clear $ for Marc Gasol. Seems like they have a commitment - if they can clear the money

    Knicks potentially a partner. Leon Rose the new GM there..LBJ's former agent
