So lets assume everything goes wrong. Klay, Butler, Middleton, Kyrie, Kemba all stay put, Kawhi and KD goes to LAC and AD goes to Boston.


(I'll stop typing for 2 seconds as i throw up)


Then what? A couple of suggestions...


#1. Beal and Boogie.


We offer all non-Lonzo/Kuz assets we have for Beal, which would be BI, Hart, Bonga, Wagner, 2019 1st (the selection) and the 2021 1st (with good protection) which isn't a bad offer. Since Beal would go straight into our cap space, we'd still have 21M left to spend which could be used on Boogie Cousins.


That would leave us with


Lonzo - Beal - Lebron - Kuz - Boogie as our starting 5.

Room-MLE could then be used on two veterans to round out the roster.



#2. Bledsoe and Boogie.

Instead of Beal we go with Boogie and Bledsoe. Bledsoe is a FA and Milwaukee (probably) cant afford to keep him and he's been pretty good this season. Bledsoe is Klutch and we'd be able to rolll with:


Bledsoe - Lonzo - BI - Lebron - Kuz - Boogie - Hart - Wagner - Bonga

Plus out 2019 pick

Damn solid squad that both can win and has all the flexibility in the world to make mid-season deals.

I am hoping for a miracle, but the last few seasons haven't been kind to the lakers and FA.  I would be stoked if we could get Chaz back and round out the roster with lottery pick busts.   That was awesome.

If we strike out on the big name guys then we'll have to consider other options. In the scenario you describe I'd have no problem going with Boogie and Beal.
