    "Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks – including the No. 4 overall in 2019 Draft,"

    That's pretty much what the Spurs wanted for Kawhi and the Lakers are now 1 year older, LBJ is one year older, and still didn't get to keep any of that. Brilliant piece of business!!!
    But they also added AD and can sign Kawhi anyways.

    I bet they still have a disappointing season.
    I bet they don't. Lakers are not finished. More of a chance the Spurs have the disappointing season not making the playoffs.

    Exactly No one should down play this Laker trade. Now they have added another star to entice a third star to jump on board. Kawhi is now more likely to sign with the Lakers.
    Theres not much of a chance for them to get Kawhi or any other 'star's at this point. $23M is all they have to offer and that won't interest a top FA

    I don't believe Kawhi wants to go there, rather the Clippers in LA. He's a diva now and will not share spotlight with LBJ. I also don't think they have the space to get him but I'm not a trade-math person.

    I don't think the Lakers will miss the playoffs, but they won't make a deep run either. The Spurs could miss the playoffs, but I think they end up with a similar result to the Lakers. Assuming they have a healthy Anthony Davis and Lebron James, that would be a disappointment for them.

    Unless LeBron has dramatically changed, he is now after a guard, to re-create the type of big three he had when he won it all at Miami and Cleveland. Kawhi is not a guard.

    really? Kawhi Davis and Lebron would be unbeatable if healthy, Kawhi is a good shooter anywhere on the court, no current team could score consistently against those guys, there are no adjustment issues when you have the two best players in the league.

    Nate Duncan: If AD trade is executed July 6, even if Lakers can strip it down to LeBron, AD, and Kuz and even if AD waives his full trade bonus, they’d only have ~$29.3m available (re Adrian Wojnarowski report on trying to get as much space as possible) – via Twitter NateDuncanNBA

    Adrian Wojnarowski: Lakers are aggressively pursuing the purchase of second-round picks in Thursday’s NBA Draft too, league sources tell ESPN. Those picks will offer two important things for LA: acquisition of inexpensive labor and ability to exceed the salary cap with those minimum contracts. – via Twitter wojespn

    I agree about the offense, but teams could score against them at will

    I think with 3 of the top 6/7 players in the league, they will easily get some dogs to do the dirty work, I really hope the Kawhi does not go to the Lakers, it would be worse than the Durant go to Golden State, at least in relation to the league's competitiveness.

    Lakers are tight of they can't get the money to sign another star.LeBron won't win without a big 3. He barely won with a big 3 when he was younger.

    imo, in the old days Buss Sr. would pay under the table to other owners.
    With the new breed of owners, well some of them (Cuban), Laker bullshit got called out. For example Chrissy Paul for a bag of chips trade got vetoed.

    So unless some great under the table payoff is coming, ya I don't see why any 2019 teams would help them.

    I have a sick feeling that Lakers are on the table
    I like that feeling you got. Lakers needed a 3rd team to dump end of the bench scrubs on to create another max slot:

    Pels trade Lakers #4 to ATL:

    So to all you farmers talking bout the Lakers FO:

    Now it's a real possibility that the Lakers actually have a 3rd max slot when the smoke clears

    Now, I really want Kiwi to help form the best big 3 since MJ/Scottie/Worm, to piss of you farmers. But I'd gladly settle for Killa Kyrie to piss Boston off.
