    Hopefully McKinnie gets picked up by someone. He’s a good kid.

    Well, probably because everyone right now have enough guys to sit on the sidelines and do nothing.

    Dennis should have gotten with Rich Paul, he'd be signed by now.

    Means that Paul has learned his lesson. That's even better.

    Yes big hand to the owner of the Lakers but you do her wrong here. Again it is JEANIE Buss one N. And you’re not even close on how large of a tax she’s having to pay. It’s going to be over 200 million dollars.

    The Lakers don't have a 200 million tax bill. That would be unreal. 200 million total payroll tax included maybe.

    Got some insight on what's been happening RE: Caruso.

    Lakers FO asked Caruso to wait for a little bit, because they wanted to see if Schroder would be willing to reconsider coming on as a backup PG to Westbrook. Their idea was that Schroder could take a 1 year deal for less money to try to "prove" himself for a bigger deal down the line, since nobody was going to offer him the 100M+ he wanted. The Lakers were also simultaneously exploring some S&T opportunities for him. Plan B was to resign Caruso for a deal similar to what he got from Chicago.

    In the mean time, Caruso saw the reports from Shelburne about how the Lakers and him were going to part ways, and I believe he got worried that he was going to miss out on a good deal. This leak did not come from the Lakers, obviously. The Bulls meanwhile were recruiting him pretty hard, and he took that offer. He would have rather stayed in LA, but the timing threw him off.

    In the mean time, Schroder was obviously not interested in staying on as a reserve, so LA quickly pivoted to plan C: Nunn.

    Hope this helps! The Lakers roster looks nearly complete and poised to get #18!!!

    Many thanks for the info. Do you have any idea of what the plan is right now with Schroder, if there is any, since it looks like only 2-3 teams have cap to sign him without a S&T?
