Simmons will obviously help (Ingram is a two to three year project while he gets his adult body). However, I don't think Simmons is a "savior" by any stretch. He has a lot of work to do. Yet again the Lakers will be banking on the lottery gamble.
This is the rabbit hole I was on about three years ago, that everyone railed on me for (and I'm sure everyone will continue to). This is not an easy thing to get out of, this rut the Lakers have put themselves in.
