This is a thread where we can just spitball different half-crazy rebuilding scenarios.
Rubiks Cube solution 1: Ball + overhaul
Trade 1: Zubac, 28th pick, Mozgov to Brooklyn for a TPE. Taking on Mozzy sucks, but they add talent and potential with Zu and 28th, which is what they need.
Draft: Lonzo Ball
Trades 2: D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Clarkson to Indiana for Paul George - a weak return for Indiana, but they wont find anything better.
Trade 3: Two Future 2nd rounders to TOR for Lucas Noguiera. TOR is too deep in lux tax and C position to keep Lucas.
Payroll, so far: roughly 68M.
Free agents: Jrue Holiday (25M), Justin Holiday (whatever). The Holiday brothers are from LA and i think they could be interested in playing together.
Jrue - Lonzo - Ingram - George - Black
Justin - Brewer - Deng - Nance - Noguiera
In 2017-18 i think that team would be able to compete for a playoff spot. Lonzo and Jrue would share PG duties and ONE should be on the floor at all times. Ingram, George, Deng, NAnce would be the frontcourt rotation with Black and Nguiera handling the 5 spot. Everyone on this team are solid defenders that can pass. Most can shoot.
In 2018-19 we are in a position to make a run at a C if we dont believe Black or Noguiera are the long term options here.
