    Yes. It would involve a trade with Julius Randle

    Looking at that list, is it Ron Artest or Trevor Ariza that is their best FA signing in the last 20 years?

    Well that will be awkward. Talk about a chill in the locker room.

    Ariza was a trade.

    Probably something like ... Metta, Derek Fisher, Lou Will, KCP?

    The Lakers entire roster isn't worth Capela.

    Who can’t be traded because he’s a RFA

    So they would ask to be traded to whatever team he’s on in the East, but never asked to be traded to the Lakers if he and PG are there for what reason?

    They won’t be off the star market. They could still trade for one.

    Two days ago PG was an insight into his offseason which meant that he was going to LA. This morning, PG and lebron were going to LA. Now, it's probably no for PG and they need to trade kawhi to get Lebron.

    The reality is we don't NEED lebron to compete for a championship. TBH all we needed was a healthy hamstring. All this stuff is noise, and the truth is the success of our offseason isn't dependent on LBJ.

    I’ll say it again. Unless the Spurs get the Lakers first born, they aren’t trading him to them. Besides the fact they hate the Lakers from the Duncan vs Shaq and Kobe days, this divorce between them and Kawhi is getting very personal and messy. They will not give Kawhi what he wants.

    The Space Jam 2 angle does make sense for Lebron to join the Lakers though, in the first Space Jam it was focusing on when MJ walked away from basketball by retiring to play baseball, in the second it would be when Lebron walked away from basketball by going to a team without any chance of contending. Basically the same as MJ going to play baseball.

    When the MonStars come back they take top talent from the best teams in the league and that would lead to them overlooking Lebron on the lowly Lakers thus he could go save the day.

    The team that should be all in on Kawhi is Philly. He fits right into their timeline, and fills an immediate need.

    Trade should be something like Covington, Saric, Zhaire Smith, 2019 1st & Miami's 2021 1st. If San Antonio prefers Fultz over Zhaire Smith, then I switch them out. Then they can resign Reddick and Ilyasova using their non-bird/bird rights. Then they should still have enough room to use their full MLE to go get a guy like Isaiah Thomas to provide a scoring punch.

    IT / Fultz or Zhaire
    Reddick / McConnell
    Kawhi / Anderson
    Simmons
    Embiid / Ilyasova

    that package isn't exactly enticing for Kawhi. The best thing there is saric and he's solid at best. don't see much reason why spurs would even do that
