    Really? I thought we had to wait 10 days? What changed or did I just misread whatever has been posted on this?

    This is tricky because Rich Paul is Lebron's agent and if Lebron wants him then I assume he gets first pick.

    NBA could find a way to support the Lakers.
    I like the Lakers to be in the playoffs. They are more watchable than Kings and Clippers.

    Not tricky, if Lakers want him.

    I have a thread in Lakers forum in summer: Why not spend the same money to sign Straight 5 Lopez and Randle instead of KCP? (Lopez+J Randle = 12 million)
    Lakers fans told me that KCP signing is to reward Rich Paul for LeBron contract.

    I don't think the Morris will sign with the Rockets. They need him to wait until his contract is more cap friendly since the main priority of the season is staying under the salary cap.

    He is TIGHT with Harden not Lebron. I don't see him going to LA over Houston/Boston

    Why? These players have a say on where they end up. Just because LeBron wants him on the Lakers doesn't mean he'll automatically go there.

    Damn, this is frustrating. Kieff can sign here whenever he wants. He's not even medically cleared to play yet, and the Rockets can sign him on the 22nd without any cap issues whatsoever.

    Yeah I'm not tripping about the time frame. With the ASB coming up that will give him extra rest anyways. the 22nd is perfectly fine. More concerned with him wanting to play with his bro

    Tell me the last time HOU ended up with an actually good player that they sought after since Chris Paul. Everything we've picked up were crumbs.

    Raptors don't have enough minutes for him, neither do Lakers.

    NBA and NBA media have such a hard on for Lebron and the shitty Lakers.
