Any time the champs can add the 6th man of the year its a loss for everyone else.

George Hill to OKC. The Jrue Holiday/Bledsoe/Steven Adams trade keeps changing and getting bigger.

I got mixed feelings myself, but he is a bargain at MLE and now we got two more legit scorers than we did last year. More offense, less defense, but hopefully the improvement in O outweighs the loss in D. Also Harrell's defense is getting a bad rap because the Clips had no other bigs to help out. Clip fans though seem mostly happy to see him gone. They just remember him from the playoffs I guess. He must have been really unhappy there to take so little money to play at his crosstown rivals. Or maybe he just didn't want to move out of LA and wanted a change in spite of taking less $.

Key though is chemistry. Hopefully Vogel's genius in defense will turn him into a good defender or at least average. After all, the Lakers preseason weren't expected to be that great defensively, at least compared to the Clips, and they overperformed on the defensive end, especially in the playoffs and without Bradley. So it's hard not to be optimistic, getting 6th man of the year AND the runner up.

Just need to resign KCP somehow, but I read that the signing have triggered a hard cap and that will make it harder. Hopefully KCP really wants to stay.

Way too much cash for someone who's probably no longer an elite player. Reeks of desperation on the part of Charlotte.

I didn't see that one coming, and I didn't know the Hornets had the cap space to sign someone to such a contract. It's definitely an overpay, as he is constantly hampered by injuries, but what are the Hornets going to do? No one really wants to go there as a free agent, so they'll overpay anyone who's willing to, even if they're on the downslope of their career.

yea way too much money & i would say he was never elite. a player any team could use & was pretty good at one point at least. for that money it was the right move for him.

I just saw that Avery Bradley signed a two year deal with us. I also didn't see this one coming, as there was no talk of any interest in him leading up to free agency. When healthy he can make any team better defensively, and he's a pretty good three point shooter, but the key word is healthy. He hasn't been that in about 5 years now. I hope he can contribute to our success, though it's a pretty low risk signing, so it's not a big deal either way.

I'm happier that we brought back Dragic and Leonard for another run at the finals.

I guess Jae Crowder went to greener pastures. Good for him for landing that Suns deal. He deserves it with his excellent hustle play.

Rondo to Hawks. Good that he didnt go to Clippers.

Avery Bradley also gone, he going to the Heat. Not a big deal since LA won without him.

So Quinn Cook, Dwight Howard, Bradley, Green and Rondo gone. Got Harrell, Matthews and Schroeder in.

Elfrid Payton back to the Knicks two days after they cut him.
Nerlens Noel is also a Knickerbocker.

It's almost a wash between them. Harrell has the benefit of youth though and more upside (continues to improve). Good pickup for them though. Hopefully we can get Gasol but that's a step down from Howard. Still wondering why he left. Maybe he didn't like being benched during the Finals and thought LA would be trending more small ball next year? Or maybe some friction with a teammate or two? Lebron vaguely alluded to something of the sort early in the bubble.

Ibaka can spread the floor better, which is why I wouldve preferred him. I dont know I just keep remembering Harrell getting abused by Jokic so that doesnt help the Harrell signing for me.

Ibaka will help the Clips which sucks

Gasol would be nice. That would mean we never see McGee again probably.


I wonder what the starting lineup will be. I imagine, everything stays the same except Matthews takes Green’s spot. I read he aigned cause it woukd give him a starting line up job. Then Kuz, Harrell, Schoreder, and Caurso off the bench.

Markeef Morries wants to resign so we’d get him again, and last year’s rookie I read LA was hoping to give him more meaningful mins this year. Or at least they hoping he contributes more.

Matthews starting? Half the bench is better than he is. I think Schoreder should start, or at least give him the bulk of the minutes and Wes be a token starter (like McGee last year, playing under 20 minutes and not seeing the floor in the 2nd or 4th quarter).

I love and hate these transactions at the same time. The Lakers have traded JaVale McGee and a future 2nd rounder to the Cavs for Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie, while also signing Marc Gasol. We are suddenly much slower, but bigger up front with range.

EDIT: ESPN originally reported McGee for a 2nd round pick. I am cool if we also get former Warrior J-Bell in return.

Awesome! I think we're pretty much set now. Gasol is a great replacement for Dwight. Lakers are a better team now than last year.
