Lebron+AD+Kuzma+FA+random non-2019 Lakers is pretty solid given the Warriors injuries.

If they sign another max FA, you and I might be in the running to be some of those random non-2019 Lakers.

No one can compete with the NBA on year-round engagement.

We’d still win 55 games:confetti:

I guess this means we won't ever hear of Lonzo Ball's dad ever again now that his son is in New Orleans.🌞☀️

He'll battle back hard and be louder than ever these next few weeks initially, then he should fade off into irrelevance once and for all.

John Paxson supposedly likes Lonzo Ball and thinks he would fit in real well with the Bulls. He also claims LaVine, Markkanen and Carter Jr. are off-limits, so it doesn't seem likely anything can get done without one of those players being involved.

You know, D’Angelo Russell would make a ton of sense for the Lakers now.

I don’t think the Pelicans could have done much better.

Imagine the Celtics giving Tatum and every other asset leaving AD and Hayward.

Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42

The Lakers will have either $27.8M in room or $32.5M in room after this deal. All depends on the timing and if Davis waives his $4M trade bonus.

Thought they did fantastic. They have endless options at this point.

Ahything from using 4 to attach to Hill/Moore and moving down.....then getting a high level FA (or acquire existing player under contract in that deal). They have a #### load of cap space if they rid of Hill and/or Moore and Jrue/Ball/Ingram/Williamson to build around.

Jrue + Ball + Ingram + Williamson is only around $50 million for the upcoming season.

EDIT: There's a going to be a ####load of interest in that 4 pick.

As a C's fan that would have been fine with me. Get the rebuild started. As it is, we're stuck in mid-2000's Hawks Josh Smith/Joe Johnson territory.

Glad that the Lakers got the deal done without having to take a bad contract back in return.  I thought Pelinka would give away everything and take back a bad deal too.  I wonder what number Davis will wear next season, as 23 is taken.

Is Jrue/Ball/Ingram/Williamson the worst shooting team ever* assembled?

happy for the Lakers that they got the guy they wanted, but i will be hammerring Lakers unders and fading Lakers galore for next year. What the hell does that team have left? I really hope it was Palinka and no Magic last year that made those moves.

Woj needed to add that the Lakers traded Lavar away as well.  That really helps the trade grade.

The Pels backcourt will be a defensive nightmare for opponents if Ball can stay healthy.

He said AD can't dribble, can't shoot FT's and that in LA you had better perform because sugar turns into #### real fast.

under discussed point of that AD trade is the 3 1st round picks. Let's say Lebron shows more wear and tear this year, what the hell is AD going to do for the next 5 years there?

2nd best part of the trade has to be the Celtics. That team has 7-8 seed written all over it for the next few years. Great job Ainge and Celtics' front office, way to show no balls to get any kind of quality player

He's a free agent after this upcoming season, he can jet.

LeBron from two years ago, I would say LA could have assembled the title favorite. I feel like with 2019 LeBron, some of the shine has worn off personality wise, if not talent wise, and it's going to be a little more difficult to assemble a legitimate roster around AD and LeBron, unlike the Heat from 8 years ago or whatever.

No worse situation than they've been in for the last 5 seasons.

Given how teams now actively target the opposition's worst defensive player with PNR, and sag off a team's worst shooter to clog the lane, it'll be interesting to see how the 2 (3?) really good guys, one decent guy, and a bunch of filler approach works in 2019-2020. Certainly going to be an interesting experiment.
