    Yeah, I know a little early you might say; it is, admittedly. Either way, I don't prefer going after RFA's, but one player that I'd like to make an offer to is:

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. I think Detroit matches, but what the heck? He's got good size, very capable offensively, and an above average defender.

    Thoughts? Mention other names that might help us, etc.

    It's never to early to talk about Free Agency in LakerLand.

    I like KCP, but would need a list of free agents to compare and contrast if he would be a top 3 choice for me. If we lose Young to FA or JC to a trade, on the top of my head it would be hard to argue against giving KCP a real shot.

    Just kidding. Really. I do have faith in the Luke factor but we need to start winning a respectable number of games the 2nd half of the season.

    Durant has a PO?

    I'm sure he's regretting his decision to go to GS, and will now give us a shot.

    Pretty much a done deal right there.

    Jrue Holiday is interesting; he is from Los Angeles, too. He has significant Injury history, though.

    Holiday is definitely interesting. I think if we pony up the dough we could maybe get to him, but like you said he's got a history of injuries. Hard to throw money that way. I'm interested in any former GS Warrior like Iguodala, Bogut, and Livingston. I've got some interest in Michael Carter-Williams, Brandon Jennings, Tony Allen, Rudy Gay, Danilo Gallinari, and Amir Johnson.

    I'm pretty interested in Ibaka, Redick, and Noel depending on their cost. I'm obviously also very, very interested in Hayward but I don't see a way that he would choose us.

    I like MCW. He just regained his starting position with the Bucks. I wonder if they end up paying him?

    There is just not a lot out there in the way of stars - I think with the internal improvement of our youth and some decent acquisitions this summer, we can make the PO'S next season.

    Unless there's another, he's with the Bulls. Easy to mix up but yeah.
