    Maybe the Lakers go with an alternative strategy. They only sign one max guy this offseason and then try to retain cap space to sign Leonard next year. That's possibly what Magic was refering to when he mentioned that it might be a 2 year process.

    That was my first thought. But not sure LeBron likes that strategy.

    That max FA doesn't neccessarily have to be Lebron. Could be PG13 this year.

    They want to take Anderson off our hands as a salary dump?

    If winning it all is important to LeBron, he needs to stop fuking around and force a trade to the Rockets. In a few months, dude is going to be 34. Not much time left to play what ifs or wait around for others.

    Anyone ever wonder if Kawhi will be the same player outside of SA?

    Dan Gilbert & Herbert Simon don't want to see the Lakers become a Super team and Dan Gilbert don't want to facilitate one. They think the Lakers were tampering and Herbert Simon want to Spite Paul George. What better way is to help Houston. They also can't stand Golden State. I can see Gordon going to the Pacers for a future protected first and a few non guaranteed contracts going to Cleveland// Anderson along with 2 Houston firsts and throw in pieces to the Cavs for Lebron on opt in. He gives it one shot in Houston to win it all with his Buddie CP3 and then he can finish his career in L.A. if he so chooses. Ryan Anderson more than likely be bought out by the Cavs.

    They wouldn't likely be willing to take on any salary past next year as they'd want to make a run at another max FA next summer.

    whoa on the second Woj tweet that would mean they would be really punting on this off season. No way would LeBron sign if all that is given up for Kawhi. Like losing some young talent, taking a salary dump how would the rest of the roster be filled out? LeBron + KL would be a tough combo to go up against but I do not believe its enough to beat the Warriors.

    I mean lets not forget that GS is limited in the moves they can make but they will try to upgrade their roster as well this off season.

    "Leonard has been adamant that he doesn't want to step into the San Antonio locker room again,"

    Well since Kawhi is complete little **** I hope the Spurs start revealing all the juicy details that they have been covering up all his carreer.

    Lakers are likely to acquire Lebron, PG13, CP3, Kawhi and Lillard.
