    OKC have a pretty good GM. I wouldn't be stunned in the end if he negotiates a deal for PG to OKC and gets back young talent. Win-win for both sides, if LAL can lure another big free agent with PG as the bait.

    Kuzma I'd keep. Lonzo has the baggage of his father, a giant pain if ever there was one, someone who makes Draymond Green look laconic and introverted.

    Can a team have clause in the contract stating something along the lines of:

    "If your conduct is detrimental to the team, team activities, team perception, team recruitment, etc., you are subject to fines and/or breach of contract."?

    I would hire a Social Media Team to approve all of the kids stupid activities. Poor management skills/team culture.

    Lonzo/Ingram/Picks/Salaries to Spurs for Kawhi... That's the solution or something close to it. Idk, how plausible this is on the trade front but if this is what it takes to get Lebron... I'd do it. Wouldn't be good for us though, unless Morey can sneak in as a third team and bring in Randle (I remember reading somewhere that Morey is fixated on the guy... Cyber?)

    Why would Pops want to deal with that mess?

    I'm giving Pops the credit where credits due. If there is a man who can make it happen, it's him.

    Popovich would retire if that deal happened. Going through a rebuild (something the Spurs don’t do) is not something he would want to do at his age.

    The other clown may be running his mouth off while running off his putative replacement as GORT: greatest of recent (LAL) time, that is.

    Relax.
    You do realize Ingram is 20 years old right? Lonzo averaged 10, 7, 7 in his rookie year and Kuzma was one of the best rookies last year. You’re right it won’t happen, I was more trying to show that Lakers can pull off one hell of a trade for a third star on top of having enough space to sign 2 super stars.
    3 second year starters sounds a lot better than what Jimmy Butler netted the Bulls at the time. Same goes for Paul George. At the time we were all saying what a ridiculous trade. These three guys are definitely a better deal than what the Kings got for Cousins.

    I think they do have that policy. Players can be fined/suspended for what they say in interviews or social media, but only stuff that would be directly damaging to the team or league. Ragging on other players is not punishable. Remember when Ty Lawson made fun of Harden's defense or CJ McCollum made fun of Parsons?

    Besides, Kuzma sent that tweet six years ago when he was only 16 years old. He wasn't even close to sniffing the NBA back then and was just a normal fan. How do you punish someone for something they said as a kid?

    See, I want to add the clause that makes that punishable. It puts a negative spin on team chemistry, adds to the "Cons" column of Lebron coing to LA.

    I would fine the shite out of them.
