Melo is actually an offense initiator as well, it will be Kobe as a natural 1-2-3
Melo as a natural great scorer in his physical/mental prime and jennings a player learning how to play within a team with talent
But it could be players not named melo who are here as well, like LBJ, who knows.
I think Tony Parker could end up as a Laker to be honest, because rebuilding is something I can't imagine he would be into, and then you're talking maybe 8-9 million.
You have to look at the direction OKC is taking and wonder will Westbrook and Durant be there for the future?
OKC seems to be investing somewhat in Reggie Jackson, if Westbrook isn't there at the start of the season it could be something they consider. If it comes down to choosing Westbrook or Durant it's likely they pick Durant and just make him run the point forward. Depends how that works out but they may see Westbrook as expendable depending on how this season goes for him.
And I honestly have no idea what direction OKC is taking. My guess is they are gonna be depending on Jackson and Lamb to be their bench....
