    How can you be mad at that? he's 100% right. We've signed Shaq 2 decades ago and got a discounted Payton and Malone. Other than that what big names have we signed? Vlad Rad? Steve Blake? Only a few seasons with cap space, but even then there's really only one MAJOR free agent that's on the table next year and it's very unrealistic to think we're going to nab him.

    Lakers will get a meeting with all the top free agents, but no free agent is choosing us simply because we're the Lakers.

    I read him as 100% correct, and he still managed to do better than we realistically thought possible this season.

    I hope Nick gets a lot of minutes early in the year and then we trade him. I don't see him as a full year option for us

    How can OKC match that, but they let beard go ? kanter is the WORST defensive player in NBA history.

    Hope we don't let that exception expire (if that is even possible?). I would assume since Mitch maneuvered the transactions this way to keep the exception that he plans to get someone with it.

    Offer it to KJ McDaniels please. I'm sure Houston won't match if we go slightly over 2 million.

    I wish! But it looks like Houston is going to match any (reasonable) offer to KJ

    In 26 games for OKC, he averaged 18.7 ppg and 11 boards.

    Defense is non-existent.

    I didn't watch much that year.
    Pau was pushing for a spot as a starter on that list the last couple years he was here.
