If you were given only ONE contract to save the Lakers where you could offer a 4-year MAX contract to any ONE player 32 years of age or younger (FA or not) who would it be?

 

For instance if you sign a 30-year old you would be committed to X player and his max contract until he was 34 years of age, think about it...

 

Would that ONE player transform these Lakers?

If anyone answers this with anything other than a top 5-6 NBA player they should have their head examined

 

Hayward or George

Thought you were talking about this years FA. Obviously if you can straight up pick anyone its a different answer, but it's not that useful of a question then. 

 

I'm going with Anthony Davis for obvious reasons.

Giannis Antektempo...(sp?)

 

This system and roster, take him, Russell, Ingram and Zubac and trade Randle/Clarkson for a legit 4 who can shoot and board and is a decent defender, draft Ball or Jackson with our pick...

 

Yep...that's what I would do.

If we could get anyone: AD probably

FA 2017: Durant

FA 2017 (long shot): Hayward.

 

FA 2018: Boogie and PG13

AD is way too injury-prone. I would go with KAT.

 

24.6 - 12.2 - 2.8 on 53.5 / 35.5 / 81.8 on second season.

 

No [expletive]ing joke.

It would be a coin toss for me between KAT and the Greek Freak.

The obvious is Lebron.  However, in terms of fitting with our current core and competing for the future....

 

1A) Karl Anthony Towns

 

1B) Kawhi Leonard

 

Anthony Davis is way to fragile.

The problem with Lebron is he is 32 which would mean you would have his massive contract until 36, had Born been 30 or younger, absolutely.

 

BOTH of your choices are solid.

 

Im stuck between KAT and the Freak (this guy is just getting started)

Giannis hasn't peaked and is still one of the youngest stars in the League.  His potential is limitless.  Russell/Giannis/Ingram with Zubac?  The length and defensive potential of that team is outstanding and they will all likely extend each other's primes...

 

If we could get a young player like Marquese Chriss to play the 4, we'd be set for the next 10 years at least...

 

 

Remember how I was saying we should have traded Randle for a top 10 pick last year and drafted Marquese Chriss?  Yeah...still thinking that.

Exactly, honestly I have always been a fan of Giannis (pre draft), he was truly a freak of nature simply raw.

 

Russell

Giannis

Ingram

Zu

 

Im sold!

I think you said he wouldn't net us a top 10 pick and we would be lucky to get the 15th-20th+ pick for him. You did mention Marquese Chriss though.

If we are considering prime ability and future at current age then how can anyone pick anyone outside of KD or Lebron.  As good as the other guys in the league are those guys are just flat out better by a decent margin.  If Lebron wasn't going to be 33 this year then he'd be the easiest pick.

I'd still take LeBron. He instantly makes you a contender. Picking anyone besides him or KD just speeds up the rebuild. I'd gladly win 1 or 2 rings in the next 5 years then start the rebuild over again. There is nothing wrong with that.

How good does KD make this team?

KD by himself? Somewhere between seeds 4-6. If we get KD or LeBron trades will be made. Ingram and a top 3 pick will get us another star. Add Russell and some other assets and there is another very good player right there.

After that we could probably compete with any team in the NBA.

I'd target Lillard, Butler, or PG13 just to name a few guys. With our assets, as long as we are willing to gut the team to compete, I think we could realistically get two second tier type players to put besides KD. The rest of the roster will be filled during free agency.

Moz and Deng's contracts will be an issue in this scenario though.

I think that people severely underrate KD.
