If they trade Ingram and Ball, any chance they had t sign Lebron goes out the window. That team at is the 3rd best is the West and could be a bad as fifth and outside of Kuzma, there is no real upside.

I think this team would challenge warriors and possibly beat them and with rockets losing ariza that's a big blow. Ingram and ball don't help James sign. James wants experience to win now not three years down the line. Trading them enables the lakers to dump Deng and get a quality big to sign James and George. Lakers signing George and Bradley is y James would go there. Not to help develop ball and Ingram.

My opinion outside this trade. Trading ball Deng and Ingram for a star player allows Lakers to have cap to sign George and james could be a way to get them to sign with more experience player. Or stretch Deng have cap to sign james and George plus someone else.

I like to sign george and James. Plus sign Avery Bradley. then trade Deng and ball for DJ. Sign randle to his offer making him unrestricted next year and keeping him.

Sixth man sign Evans and 7th man Randle and 8th kuzma .
Now there be no mismatch with james defeating the warriors. love is a great player he just don't fit playing against the warriors. Now it be a Lakers and Celtics in finals in 2019.
-bradley can slow down Steph.
-George can d up Thompson but can Thompson d up George no
- james can handle Durant or least equal him out
-ingram can guard green plus play the 3 on offense.
-dj well dominate any center they have. So yeah this be great for James and George to join the Lakers even with out DJ and Bradley because there other options. But with them teaming up would be deadly. Especially to the Lakers because they will still have cap and can trade for another star with picks and young players. So the warriors wouldn't make finals.

I believe Ball and Ingram should be enough for WCS and capspace.

I'm not sure Bradley can be a full time pointguard, maybe he can do this, because LBJ is the main ballhandler.
Would LBJ take a discount when LA can sign CP3?
