    Power forward and center position isn't really that different these days with small ball. Tristan/AD could switch roles back-and-forth. Tristan played significant minutes at center with that Cleveland roster that made four straight NBA Finals while Love played power forward.

    I would like to keep AC but he's going to also want to get paid. He's been underpaid for quite some years already. Just putting it out there that Pritchard is a viable option. He's undersized but can shoot, doesn't take dumb shots, and is locked in at $2 million next season with the final two seasons being team options. If it doesn't work, Lakers can just cut him.

    Pritchard is an interesting name in a sense ... we lacked someone who had balls and DGAF on the offensive end ... we could have used a Austin Rivers ...

    Last season we had Rondo ( even if he's not a scorer 1st) , this season nobody ... they all played scared and didn't try to do more than their role... pb is none of them can dribble a B-ball

    From McBuckets to McBricks or McClanks. I like it! Will he? ;)

    Wonder if that’s the mid level or Kuz and ?

    This guy is a proven shooter. Can we have both McL and McD?

    Good post. Agree with most of it. I wouldn't trade KCP, there's not many like him and he's not good enough to entertain an offer for a star, even with Kuz involved

    Caruso is an absolute lock, we can't let him go.

    This is 100% correct. Need to maintain that cap hold so we can do something with it later (i.e. trade). If we let him leave, no way to replace him.

    Lillard is likely staying in Portland and not demanding a trade considering reports that he wants Kidd as the HC for Portland.

    I would give Portland our whole roster(minus Lebron and AD of course) plus picks for Dame, sadly that wont be near enough unless he demands a trade to us

    Does Neil Olshey happen to need a kidney? I'd be willing to trade Kuzma, KCP, the 22nd pick, and LTLakerFan's kidney for Lillard. In fact, I'd throw in one of karacha's too so Olshey can have a full set.

    C’mom LT, take one for the team. We’d go on a three-peat.
