I have a feeling he might leave if they don't make it out of the 1st round. My question is where are some of the other destinations that will put him in a better situation then with the Clippers? Just curious. Does he think of teaming with Harden at Houston and forming the best backcourt in the league. Do Houston make a
play for him if they dip out on D12. Dallas will probably make a run at him but a aging Dirk is not as enticing. What other teams can
realistically put him in a better position. I'd love for our Lakers to be but the likelihood of that is
very slim. We would probably have to amnesty Kobe and trade Gasol to a team under that can absorb his whole contract. We would also have to renounce our rights on all our free agents and not pick up Meeks option. We would then have to try and trade some our remaining guys Nash,MWP,Blake,Hill and Duhon. We would somehow have to cut at least 10 more mill off of their combined contracts which total nearly 29 mill. Again having to trade to teams that can
absorb salary and give future picks. If we were able to do all of this we then would be able to sign him. That's alot of moves which would have to happen to be able to sign CP3. On top of that we have to sacrifice Kobe to make it happen which is huge and would piss alot of people off.
We would have a depleted roster after this with Dwight and CP3 the new 1-2 punch. We would have to fill the rest of the roster out with the MLE and vet min and our picks. While this team may not necessarily win a championship this season it would set up the team for the short
term future. If we signed most players to one year deals to fill the roster it would also give us a chance to improve the team further if just D12 and CP3 were on the books for 2014. Personally though I feel the chances of all of this happening are about as likely as me winning lotto lol.
