    How are the Lakers going to be able to afford a 3rd max player AND DAJ?? Unless he's willing to go there for the MLE or BAE or something?

    Rather have Noel tbh if we move Clint and want a defensive big.

    Or Lopez if we want a shooter.

    Think we’ll be priced out of both of those players

    Noel? I don’t think so. I think the tax payer MLE is about right for him, and Hou would be a smart decision at 5 mill over almost any other team at 10 mill. Guaranteed he’d be looking at Clint money after a few years with Harden.

    I don't believe it. DJ's from the Houston area! According to ClutchFans rules, he's required to take a hometown discount and play for minimum wage (not VET minimum, mind you) to play for the Rockets out of sheer loooooove.

    That’s why we can get him for our MLE. He’d be a big steal for us, he’s a defensive monster, Harden would get the most out of him offensively as well.

    DJ would indeed be great but Noel is more likely what would get if Butler comes here.

    Noel might be an option. Lopez will likely be too expensive.

    Could have gotten Nerlens a long time ago. I tried to campaign for him on this board and was laughed out.

    Now we cant afford him.

    Pity.
