    Edited to match updated signings..

    Here's where we are as far as Signed Players Today.
    Still some holes to fill.

    What are our options.? Any thoughts or predictions.?

    Schroder / Caruso / (Simpson?)
    KCP / Matthews / Tucker
    LeBron / Kuzma / McKinnie
    AD / Morris / Kostas
    Gasol / Harrell / ???

    It's either
    1) KCP ( or sign and trade acquisition(s)) + 4 minimums or

    2) 5 minimums .

    Stressful times ...

    Moving KCP for 2 solid mid tier Players in a sign & trade might be our best option..??
    Bringing KCP, Morris & Dudley back would be a good start too though.. I trust Rob.

    We need another center.

    I'll be shocked if KCP leaves.

    I hope we keep Morris.

    Bron is a great recruiter. Vets will come.

    Buyout market is an option later too. The roster we start the season with likely won’t be the roster we end with.

    Roster really lacking 3point shooting right now from the SG, PF, and C spots

    They used AD at C to fix the spacing issues during the finals run but without Morris then you may have back Kuzma back to the 4 where he wasn't that effective last year. He was much better at 3 particularly on D

    Wes Matthews is a good 3 pt shooter but w/o KCP or equivalent, shooting from the guard spot not looking so hot right now. Schroeder shot well from 3 last year but that hasn't been a strength of his and AC needs to still improve with his consistency. THT may be the future but again he's a question mark till he proves him. Lakers seem pretty confident that he can play and play well based on how they've approached this offseason

    All fixable but I'll be much happier when/if KCP and Morris are resigned

    Schroder is best at Catch & Shoot Threes & Matthews is deadly from both corners. I actually think we've improved our 3Point shooting.
    I agree though. Bringing back KCP & Morris would be a nice way to round out this Roster.
    Would be interested to see what sign & trade options there are for KCP as well.

    We really need KCP, because he fits great. Everything else will fall in place then.

    Would Kyle Korver fit on a Vet Min deal..?
    He's old, but can still shoot lights out in limited minutes off the Bench.

    My dream scenario is a KCP s&t with Kuzma to get Bogdan. Sign Cousins and Morris to vet minimums. Maybe pick up Batum for the minimum as well.

    This is intriguing to me as well. Definitely love Bogdan's game, but is he worth both KCP & Kuz when we need depth now..?

    Basically, now we just need to sign Gasol and/or Kieff, right?

    Schroeder/Caruso
    Pope/THT
    Bron/Wes
    AD/(Trez)/Kuz
    McGee/(Trez)/?

    Those two would fit nicely. The rest doesn't really matter at that point. You can have a guy like Dudley there, able to play few minutes, go hard in practice, bring stability to the locker room.

    Noticed and fixed. Yeah, Gasol would be nice at this point.

    Schroeder did so well off the bench, so let him continue that with larger minutes. He can be there to finish games too

    AC/Shroeder
    KCP/THT
    Mathews/Kuzma
    Lebron/???
    AD/Harrell


    If either AD or Lebron or sitting out then I would insert Schroder in there

    Are they hard capped out now or can they still use money to get back Morris?
