Durant signs two year Max with player option in thunder.

Lakers draft Ingram and pay Whiteside max. Then resign all players to decent one year deals.
Lakers get second pick in 2017 draft and get Harry Giles. then trade Williams for a future second round. Extend young. Have major cap. Have Russell, randle, whitside , clarkson, Ingram, pick 32 2016,Giles, Nance, brown, pick 32 2017. That's about 52 used with 10 players and 4 potential stars in Russell, clarkson, Ingram, Giles, and star in Whiteside. Cap should be at 115 is my estimate. They would have about 60 mil in cap. Sign harden and Durant. plus can sign a couple veterans to fill roster.
Russell/ clarkson
Harden/ brown
Durant/ Ingram
Giles/ randle/ nance
Whiteside/ giles/ randle
Lakers would be showtime again.

Again, zero thought. No to all that. And if your plan is to have whiteside come over to be the second worst team in the league, he won't. He wants to win.

Also, how can you possibly claim you have a team of 3 potential stars and one current star next year but you are the second worst in the league? You do realize, if you have players. And your team keeps sucking. It's usually indicative of the players. Durant and harden aren't leaving to go to what will be the second worst team in the league. Again. Based off your statement. Free agents care if teams of stars are always the second worst in the league. They won't go.

2.) 28 Apr 2016 16:51:36
Players choose teams that they feel they can make better, like I said last year has nothing to do with where a free agent chooses to pay especially if it's a whole new team. LBJ left Mia and just went to finals to join Cleveland who just won lottery. Stat joins NY with no one there. Melo wanted new York to gut roster to trade for him. Boston went from lottery to win in 08. Point is teams can do poor and become title contenders. Bash lakers all you want but you know the always do great things and if Kobe would never got hurt Lakers would been different. If they would got Paul Lakers would been different team. So Lakers have valuable reasons to be this poor. Your on some type of stuff if you think durant and harden w join this team along with other players would be second worse that's worse then what bensimmons would say. Just because you get second pick don't mean you the second worse team Cleveland just missed play offs and won lottery.
I can post anything about the Lakers because they do greater things then any team in this league. i'm not frustrated or upset with Lakers poor record. I understand the game as a 50 year old man. I seen Lakers do great things but with there current situation this off season expect something great from the Lakers.
If Lakers have cap they have a chance to sign anyone they want. Because players barely turn down Lakers but get excited by the thought playing there. If Philly was my team I wouldn't expect them to sign key free agents cause that's not what Philly does.

3.) 28 Apr 2016 19:04:58
Stat went to NY because they were the only ones that gave him a huge contract (uninsurable knees) . Lebron went to cleveland because he wanted to go home (got his championships and wanted to be loved in ohio) . Melo went to new york because he wanted to go home. Boston went from zeros to heros because of incredible trades (thus DA one exec of the year) .

Actually. because your record is second worst. you are second worst.

And wait. seriously, you are 50? You are 50 and calling people who disagree and have rational reasons as to why they disagree little girls? And now. its. just. sad.

4.) 29 Apr 2016 01:50:41
James came back because it was the better option. Cavs had all the tools and young players and cap to get better over one free agency. Lakers have the tools to do same thing.



28 Apr 2016 01:41:04
Cavs get Chris Paul and brown

Clips get Ingram and Clarkson sign and trade

Lakers get Irving.

Bulls get cousins and bulls keep same team but Noah

Stretch young to 2.4 over 4 years. Then if young is bought out and signs at 1.2 does that deduct from the 2.4 on the Lakers cap?
Lakers get butler at 16.5. Irving about the same. sign Bazemore 14, not going to over pay for batum. sign Marvin Williams 10. sign Whiteside 20. sign Chalmers 4. sign Martin mle. sign Dudley mini exemption. sign Mozgov 5. Plus other veterans (2)
Irving/ Chalmers
Butler/ Martin
Bazemore/ dudley/ young
Williams/ Nance
Whiteside/ mozgov

Kings get Russell, randle, Williams, pick 5,2020 lakers unprotected, asik. kings lose gay and cousin but have a great future. I figured they have so many young rookies they could afford asik contract while they develop.
Plus have there own pick and other veterans.

Pelicans get gay and get better plus sign horford. Lol that sounded funny!

lakers fan2016

1.) 28 Apr 2016 13:22:42
Just ignore this trade everyone. It's an illegal sign and trade. And ridiculous.



23 Apr 2016 07:08:52
If magic want Irving it's going to cost them. Oladipo, hezonja, vuc, Payton and two first round picks. Remember what NY gave up for melo.

Then magic could sign Howard and parsons

lakers fan2016

1.) 23 Apr 2016 07:52:03
That's too much for Irving.

2.) 23 Apr 2016 13:09:51
Irving is the best pg under age 25. Something Orlando can build team around. About time Irving 27 he should be the best pg in league. Plus going to have to get someone good for Howard and parsons to join.

3.) 23 Apr 2016 13:53:35
Ok, I agree with you about being the best PG but I think two picks is a little too much. Take One Of those Picks out then were good.

4.) 23 Apr 2016 15:54:09
way too much for Irving.

Olidipo, Payton, and Vuc is plenty.

5.) 23 Apr 2016 17:31:01
Agreed TreGib, and it would make the Cavs improve on pass-first Pgs and great role players.



23 Apr 2016 05:13:43
Cavs trade Irving and Thompson for cousins and gay.

Kings would have a solid staying line up and could start developing wcs. Irving would lead the league in scoring.

Cavs could just start delly and use gay as sixth man.

lakers fan2016

1.) 23 Apr 2016 07:23:01
If the Cavs don't make it to the finals it's a small possibility of happening because Delly is worth the money and chance but Cavs would have to trade Love I would feel unless the Cavs want a James Love cousins combo but I doubt it.

2.) 23 Apr 2016 07:53:11
Delly/ mo
Shumpert/ Smith
James/ gay
Love/ frye
Cousins/ Andy back.



21 Apr 2016 02:02:05
Thompson, love, and Irving to pelicans pelicans would be in great shape and could have potential to make deep playoff run but would miss daivs but can't refuse this

Davis and second pick from magic to cavs. Trade smith for a second round pick. Sign Durant 24 and LBJ finish contract. sign dwade ten mil. Use bird rights and resign delly.
James/ frye

Shumpert and asik to magic. Magic can do a sign and trade for Fourier somewhere because he suppose to start.

lakers fan2016

1.) 21 Apr 2016 15:23:14
Pelicans would never trade Davis.

2.) 21 Apr 2016 17:19:38
This would be fair value though. New Orleans just need to get him some real help out there or he going to just leave when can. Sucks not seeing Davis in the playoffs. If it sucks to me it really sucks to him.

3.) 21 Apr 2016 18:39:35
It does suck, agreed, but keep in mind Pels had Roster Players miss 353 games this season, ridiculous amount. Good news is they are free of Anderson and Gordon and they have 3 top 40 picks. They need to find complimentary pieces around AD and Jrue. Bad news is Asik's contract is beyond bad.

4.) 21 Apr 2016 19:17:29
dacman his contract sucks but the cap will make it a little better and who would NO sign?

5.) 21 Apr 2016 23:35:28
Nate, You make a good point, this FA Season is not big on Centers. I wish there was a way somehow to get Whiteside along AD.

6.) 22 Apr 2016 01:34:57
try Al Jefferson he can help somehow.

30 Apr 2016 03:17:18
Lets go Luke Walton. Now let's sign these stars and hopefully be able to draft Ingram or Simmons.

lakers fan2016

1.) 30 Apr 2016 03:54:02
Harrison Barnes or Festus Ezeli?

2.) 30 Apr 2016 03:57:27
Cross out the stars part and hope for the best.

3.) 30 Apr 2016 04:02:44
Great signing by Lakers.

4.) 30 Apr 2016 05:09:06
If Walton brings the same system as that they have in GS, floor spacing and ball movement, Brandon Ingram would be the perfect fit.

5.) 30 Apr 2016 06:35:34
I'm with laker fan, they sign stars not average players or they will sign veterans on one year deals and try again next year.



28 Apr 2016 08:52:28
I know I talk big things about the Lakers because players need to do something to stop golden state there great without curry so players need to do something or watch them repeat over and over but maybe not this year but curry just stay healthy and don't pull a bynum. Also stop them to get chance to win. I just think Lakers are in great position to do just about whatever they want but break up spurs or warriors. Or get towns or Davis.
Say new York was in great position with melo, prozingis, get there pick, and nothing else. The Knicks would be getting this hype to because there in a place where players wanna be and they can get money outside of basketball. Knicks just need to smarten up. I believe the main reason LA is so successful because they make great decisions on drafting and trading for players. Honestly we don't know what the agents say to teams to make them get traded to LA. Agent like Westbrook would only accept a trade where durant go. Then tell other teams not interested. just a scenario. Other reason is money outside basketball. All players Wanna play in big markets especially if the opportunity right just like the Lakers will be next year so that's why I got so high expectations for the Lakers.
Past few years been crappy but Lakers never had an injured player taking a Lil over one third your cap and other players leaving because they aren't the same with kobe hurt. plus Howard was getting off injury and Kobe pushed Howard too hard so Howard left. Plus Kobe just got hurt and Howard thought harden and Houston was better option I did too just like gasol to bulls to was better option. So Lakers have reason for poor play least they racked up some valuable young players.
Honestly why you think Lakers took on Hibert. Just to suck and get this pick. because No one wanted to play in LA because Kobe was hurt and couldn't build a contender so free agents turned down Lakers but things totally different now can't wait to see the big things Lakers do. This year or next. so stop hating! Finally I accept those losing seasons and would accept another next year for a top three pick!

I highly recommend against the "Wake and Bake" before writing a manifesto. James Joyce would be proud.

2.) 28 Apr 2016 17:55:57
One of the main reasons people get so irritated is that there are other fan basis who suffer thru years of loosing, finally get some decent players then have to hear about the LA media and fan bases asking every time they play a games in LA whether those players wanna play in LA. How about the Lakers build their own team and let other fan bases enjoy a winning a squad once in a while. Ie Leave Towns, Durant LBJ Davis etc to the fans that have earned a chnce to enjoy watching them.

3.) 28 Apr 2016 19:18:45
HAHA philly, rather snappy on the sarcasm. I like it :)

Kinda hysterical, especially seeing as he claims he's 50 and is calling everyone who disagrees a hater and little girl. Too funny.

4.) 29 Apr 2016 06:18:32
This a business not to please fans.

You please fans on your current team.

What are you even talking about?!? Put down the bong laremy!



24 Apr 2016 22:05:13
Warriors are in trouble. Curry better get healthy or going to lose second round to clippers. I think they can still best the rockets without Curry.

lakers fan2016

1.) 24 Apr 2016 23:59:42
Rest him game 5, hope clippers-Blazers somehow go to seven games, curry should be healthy by then.

2.) 25 Apr 2016 13:04:54
They can still beat the Clippers but in a hard way. But i don't think they'll pass on the Spurs or Thunder without Curry.

3.) 25 Apr 2016 16:58:20
Curry was supposed to rest up and sit out last two games. Guess record was worth it. Curry never going to be 💯 these playoffs. Unless he rest till like game three against clippers just to me safe.

4.) 25 Apr 2016 19:48:48
I fail to see how playing the final two games of the year resulted in his tweeking his ankle. If he was tired, sure. But it had NOTHING to do with his injuuries. As far as needing til game 3 before fully healthy? What?

Curry should have close to a week before needing to play. There is a fair chance hell be fine. He is a jump shooter. His biggest asset is his jump shot, particularly his 3. No clue why it isn't feasible he is good to go ina week.

5.) 25 Apr 2016 22:07:49
Well reports came out a little while ago and say he will be reevaluated in 2 weeks. Not looking like he will be back till at least game 3 of the next round.

6.) 26 Apr 2016 03:27:41
Lol just saw that also. Amazing. They didn't need to get and mri. Lakers fan knew it. Also, if he didn't play the last two games of the season. He wouldn't have slipped.

7.) 26 Apr 2016 13:36:13
Now that Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are injured, i can tell GSW are still a little bit fortunate.

8.) 26 Apr 2016 15:42:51
I had the Warriors losing the semi's regardless to okc or Spurs. So this just reinforces that.

9.) 28 Apr 2016 05:30:15
After a while your body breaks down and you get weak. Why you think LBJ rested to get a break, tend to body, and more energy.



21 Apr 2016 18:30:44
Shaq thinks durant to Lakers make sense. You know how much durant would make off nike in LA then okc. Sorry but there just tons of reasons to believe durant will go to Lakers and make his demands like james did with youngsters in Cleveland. Lakers will have two cornerstones. Ingram and Russell like Wiggins and Irving. Plus other young players clarkson>waiters. Thompson may have edge on randle but nance is way better then Bennett. So the Lakers can go from bottom to top with this team just like Cleveland and be better. Because they have more cap, better young players, better market and better management. If Lakers sign durant, I would only trade Russell, Nance Jr and pick 32 for Westbrook. Because they can just wait to next season and sign him.

lakers fan2016

1.) 21 Apr 2016 18:51:39
If you're honest and unbiased, you can be real and realize if Durant moves, itll be to the east coast. Westbrook is a complete LA guy. Durant would far prefer DC, NY, Boston. Just close to home and seems like his personality (hes a business first guy, not known for being all about the limelight) . Just true.

2.) 21 Apr 2016 18:57:25
The Cavs traded Wiggins for Love so he's not a cornerstone of James' Cavs. The Cavs also had Kyrie Irving, a 20ppg scorer going into his 4th season.

That's hardly comparable to Durant going to the Lakers and landing with a 19 year old Ingram and a very young Russell. Are you suggesting the Lakers would then flip one or more of the young core for an established NBA player like the Cavs did? That's the only way this comparison comes close to working.

3.) 21 Apr 2016 19:21:37
Shaq thinks a lot of things, and Durant would make just as much playing in DC or Boston as he would in LA. The real problem in LA isn't the roster or the cap space, (those are both possible assets), its that jerry bus and jerry west no longer run the show. The whole league is waiting out Jim buss and Mitch kupcheck. Waiting until their ineptitude finally sinks the administration and Jeanie buss takes over operations. The owners know it, the players and their agents know it.

4.) 21 Apr 2016 19:50:17
Jim buss is the problem, Mitch is fine.

5.) 21 Apr 2016 20:09:46
I agree but he'll go down with Jim. Probably by next season. BTW I'd love a Jeanie buss Kobe Bryant front office. That would put the Lakers right back on track. The one area Kobe never got credit for is being a genius level mind. In the game and out.

6.) 21 Apr 2016 23:26:22
Some people have mentioned magic and Kobe in the front office. I wouldn't mind giving owe two a chance.

7.) 22 Apr 2016 00:52:18
Those two*.

8.) 22 Apr 2016 05:09:45
Durant is Hollywood all day. But my main option for him to sign another year in okc. In 2017 Lakers keep pick also and sign Westbrook, Durant, and someone else. or join James and an established player in Lakers to play with young gunners plus Lakers keep 2016 pick. Wouldn't be mad if he sign and traded to Cleveland for love or Irving.

9.) 22 Apr 2016 13:31:59
HAHA, great argument. While it is true, he has zero connections to the west coast and is consistently classified as an east coast guy and has that mentality. a lakers fan goes he's Hollywood all day. Done deal. Well played.

10.) 22 Apr 2016 18:03:10
Go online and look, it barley say anything about durant going to Washington or especially Boston as much as Lakers. He would make tons more money in LA then Boston and Washington. With the Lakers big population how many people you think would buy his jersey and shoes. Plus can go to Lakers and pretty much take whoever he want with him because there cap.

11.) 23 Apr 2016 14:35:19
I did search, the top listings are wizards (scott brooks signing), warriors (they are the warriors) and the celtics (young team, great coach, just missing superstar) .

As far as making more money, seriously? LA has a notoriously high tax rate. But even more so, players don't get paid for jersey or shoe sales. He isn't going to see a dime of that.

As far as the lakers taking whoever he wants, a) No. and b) who is he bringing with him? And further on that. who is such a pawn in the NBA that they are going, oh Durant say jump, I ask how high.

The ONLY way durant goes west coast and leaves his top 5 team is to go to the warriors, a team that is better. To realistically believe he will go to the 2nd worst team in the league on faith that management will do what they have failed to do in years past (bring in, develop and keep talent), well. you can live on that hope. It just ain't happening.

12.) 23 Apr 2016 14:56:17
Most of the on online hype over Durant to LA is the product of LA columnists who think if they print it enough times it'll actually happen. That and it sells papers. The papers here in Minneapolisst Paul have been doing the same thing since thibideau got hired, its laughable.

13.) 23 Apr 2016 19:11:23
He see the money from his Nike contract. If he went to warriors they would be great but he just got to have over his shoulders that with one hard fall or a little trip and curry can be done for the season. So far he fortunate to be playing like he is with weak ankles. I just couldn't chance that. If he signed with wizards or Boston, still wouldn't beat the cavs.

14.) 23 Apr 2016 23:50:16
But if he plays for the lakers, where he will be the best player, if he has one slip and fall like last year, he is done. And so is the lakers rotation of 8.

15.) 23 Apr 2016 23:51:02
I don't even understand what you are saying about Nike. He isn't locked in for a massive long term shoe contract and it largely hinges on his jersey sales next year? It makes no sense. At all.

16.) 24 Apr 2016 02:35:49
Buss not the problem. Problem was Bryant being injury and no one wanted to play with an injuried player who 37 and no other help. But with cap they can sign two max contracts this year and got pieces to trade for an established star. Plus cap to sign other players. Lakers are in a great position to become contenders because there known for making superstar trades even if it's an expiring contract because they feel with there market and history they got great chance to keep that player. Do don't be shocked if they trade for Westbrook after they sign Durant.

17.) 24 Apr 2016 15:44:25
And yet the last player they did that with, Howard, immediately left. And the only major attraction in la is Russell, a guy literally no one trusts or wants to play in. It's a whole lot of living in the glory days of the early 2000s and very little of being in touch with reality. The lakers are at best, the third most popular and desirable team in California. Until you realize that, your pie in the sky goals will never come about. You. Must. Rebuild.

18.) 24 Apr 2016 17:46:11
Howard left because it was obvious. Nash and Kobe where hurt plus already aging. Him and gasol didn't work and they got out out in first round. Houston was obvious the better chance to win. It's not always about what a team had last year it's about what you can do to upgrade that team. last year mean nothing if you add all new starters and coaches. Lakers don't have bad contracts or players taking up lots of cap so they can build new team. Russell not the main attraction in LA. The main attraction is just LA itself.

19.) 25 Apr 2016 18:34:18
People don't move from a contender to an awful team with hopes they revamp everyone. Stop.



18 Apr 2016 18:22:17
If lakes can trade and get rid whole team for cousins. Just keep Clarkson and have 70 mil in cap to spend and can sign James30,15 bazemore and Durant25 should be interesting. Not saying this is likely to happen but its workable and those 5 would be a powerhouse. At 6-4" clarkson could be a beast at pg and become solid defender. Bazemore would be just as good especially playing with James and Durant. Cap night even be 92 mil who really knows.

Buss step down and let Kobe take over and be a young vice president. Kobe can talk to free agents about the great time he had as a laker to recruit free agents.

lakers fan2016

1.) 21 Apr 2016 15:56:08
So you got rid of your entire team. and now, with the cap space entirely used up, you have 4 playuers. 4. Not even a starting lineup, you have 4 players. Seriously?

2.) 21 Apr 2016 17:44:47
Looks like five to me.
Would be best starting five ever.

3.) 21 Apr 2016 18:53:48
You have not one bench player, and your cap is all used up. That team would be DESTROYED. You don't get 5 starters all commanding 12-30 million. You have no bench, and while you may think that doesn't matter. It does.

Besides, Durant and James aren't leaving their teams simply because Cousins went there. It's just a goofy idea.

4.) 22 Apr 2016 05:17:00
Thing your missing is cap never been this high. Look at west taking minimum to play on spurs others will do save to play on Lakers plus have there Lil extra contracts they can sign. Like get Crawford with mle. get bought out players like Andy and Smith. Maybe Pierce for min. gasol would jump on for other exemption and get a front office job when done. There options for a bench.

5.) 22 Apr 2016 13:09:51
mikrerockwell, stop bashing people. since you know SO MUCH about defense and the nba let's see your post.

I can see this happening

Orlando gets: Hasheem Thabeet For Nik Vucevic.

6.) 22 Apr 2016 13:38:06
I know the cap is going up, the issue is you have SO much dedicated to the starting, that the bench is just horrific. Gasol isn't going to sign there for that little money, Pierce will retire or remain a clipper, and there aren't buy outs in the off season that make these players available for cheap.

If you use up your cap on the starting 5, the penalties to create the bench will be astronomical. Even if you do it super super cheap, you're looking at like 7 players at 3-4 mill a piece, the costs would be huge with taxes, and the team would be so shallow. Just need to look for more depth.

Bensimmons, Vucevic isn't a desireable piece. He is essentially a Greg Monroe, but less of a defensive presence (if that's even possible) . To try and assume a team will trade a franchise star essentially for oladipo and vucevic is nonsense.

Perhaps you can trade vucevic for Monroe, or Kanter. but to think he is a major component of a trade for a franchise player. as even magic fans have stated on here. your ideas are beyond foolish.

I mean really. you say a couple posts down that defense doesn't matter in this league and vucevic is of the same type as harden, love and irving. which is just hysterical.

7.) 22 Apr 2016 18:18:57
Lakers can afford to pay taxes. There players who are already bought out and will play for minimum. That starting line up would give you a big lead instantly. If Pierce wanna another ring he would join. with LBJ they have a good chance at Andy. Plus mle on Crawford. Mini on Smith. They could sign mo Williams to minimum that's yen total players plus there way more options for a bench. Most likely at all times one of the starting line up will be on court.

8.) 23 Apr 2016 05:36:59
They can do a 8 man rotation with this line up. Everyone going to want there touches so play minutes and get them. there all franchise players or second options so 35-38 minutes each player is okay plus sit out allot of fourth quarters. But clarkson need all minutes he can get to develop. Crawford, Andy and Smith could be bench plus have 4 other reserves.

9.) 23 Apr 2016 14:46:25
Dude, it doesn't work that way. Pierce isn't coming to the lakers, for the minimum, to likely not win. what's funny is you say that, and argue that. Pierce is guarenteed next year with the clippers. So he either plays with them, retires, or they trade/ release him. He will not be traded or released or bought out. He will either play for the clippers, or retire. Crawford just won 6th man of the year, he will be taking more than the MLE. Andy? Great. even if you sign him, you get an injury plagued, declining center who is supposed to be part of the power 8 core and play every game for 35-38 minutes a game. Smith ain't coming to you for the league minimum, don't kid there.

and you plan on using all these players for 35-38 minutes a game, and not have any injuries? Well, you can't have injuries, because you have an 8 man rotation and 4 d leaguers.

I get it, you want to build a team like in fantasy sports, but it just won't be good. At. All.

Just keep going with the plan of drafting and developing young talent and hopefgully signing free agents with high ceiling potential, like batum, bazemore, barnes. You aren't getting durant, you aren't getting james. And derozen, while not likely, would not be a franchise changer. If anything, he would push you to that crappy area of just missing the playoffs. Rebuilds take time, its been 2 years and the lakers fans are already over it. Jeeze.

10.) 24 Apr 2016 04:49:58
Smith gets 14 mil guaranteed. So he can sign for min. Andy 9 mil so can take min. Crawford want a ring before he retire so get mle and still have mini so they can have 9 titrations and reserves like Jones and other veterans. We don't sign Batum's we sign superstars or trade for them and build contenders.

What are you talking about? They are paid that this year. Not next. And smith specifically complained that making over 6 million was hard on his family. Now you think he takes 1.5? Crawford needs a championship before he retires? Andy is worth anything? Still making no sense. At best you are that failed lakers team with Malone and Payton. More likely, you are just not good because one or two injuries ruins the shallow team with absolutely no depth.

Smith got bought out, he still get his salary. He on books for 14 mil next year in Detroit and andy on for 9 mil in Portland. They get there salary but take a Lil less because the agreed to buyout so they can switch teams. Plus there salary still count against cap. that's chances players take like Lakers won as ship with a eight man rotation. It's not like the same eight players play the whole game, it's like you don't understand and need everything explained to u.
Cavs had a four year drought and did horrible but piled up on young players and cap space. Then they got James and love plus others and became contenders. Lakers can do the same but in three years and do better because it's the Lakers. Like no one thought James would leave the heat after making the finals for years in a row. Point is players can be successful and leave there teams.

Josh Smith got signed this year at 1.5 by the clippers then was traded. He signed for that because he was already bought out and gets salary from Detroit.

Cavs only trade Irving for Paul. I said sign and trade clarkson plus pick to clippers, Irving to Lakers, and Paul to cavs

Then said love to Boston

Three nets pick and smart to Knicks

Melo to cavs.

Not really love has the most value. Milsap is an expiring contract and gasol is coming off an injury. Love is getting over shadowed being a third option. Compared to milsap and gasol being top two options.

But how you know if any them showed interest and how you know if James and Wade not planning on teaming up again. how you know that's why each player choose those teams. Do you talk to them? That send like your opinion. Rondo and Howard left playoff teams.

You say you believe there were talks in 2010. I believe Wade, james, and Durant going to the Lakers would be there best option for them to win titles. Not like they have ridiculous contracts to move. I believe that Wade and james wanna team up again just like james said play with his buddies. So if cavs lose finals I expect James to leave.

Miami has about forty mil n cap if they announce all bird rights to free agents james get thirty and not enough for Wade
Dallas or Atlanta wouldn't be a good enough team if they joined. Philly got to many centers and no guards. Orlando no defense or pg but there better is a option.
Lakers can sign James 30 Wade 15 and someone else. Plus could trade and get more ready help. I just say Durant because gives him a better chance to win.

So why howard sign with Houston and he had no ties there. Why rondo cost Sacramento. No ties there. Why Monroe choose Milwaukee no ties there. All players don't choose where to play because of ties. They choose to play by opportunities having best chance to be successful and compete. That Mia move with bosh, Wade, and james made just about anything reasonable in basketball especially with players teaming up.

I don't think Lakers have bad owner, now that kobe off the cap for makin all that money it be easier to sign free agents and have four solid young players and hope to add a fifth on this draft. Let's judge him buss by next two season when Lakers have cap and better opportunities.
