Yeah, I meant 1 year deal, think most of their signing will be one year deals, to keep cap space. As far as Cousins, yeah it's possible he leaves( just like it's possible LBJ comes, Lol) , but doubtful ,think he'd be crazy to leave playing next to AD. Imo

But we don't know what they'll offer him. That's my main point.

Like I said, doubt Lopez can't get a multi-year deal somewhere else.

For the Lakers to resign Lopez they have to use cap space, the other option is the vet minimum but why would he do that if he can chase a ring with Golden State or the Rockets for the same money.

Yeah, I get what you're saying. I thought the original premise was to sign him for the MLE. You shoulda just said we don't have one from the start instead of saying might as well sign him to the min.

My bad though. Obviously we don't have one if we're not over the cap.

OK, so given our recent improved level of play...what are our still existing weaknesses? Assuming this level of play is the new norm. Of course we can always try to get better. But is there any one area we really need to address that would make a big difference? Coz if we're talking PG and LBJ, those positions are pretty solid atm. Even tho both those guys are upgrades.

We need a center that can defend/rebound, and we need a little more shooting. That could improve as the younger players become better shooters. But another shooter off the bench would be nice.

Then as far as depth goes, we definitely need a backup PG and a backup SF. Depending on who we let leave this offseason.

It was 0.6, Fisher hit a winner with a similar amount of time remaining but sure just dismiss it because it doesn't fit your narrative.

well that and the ball got tipped making it impossible for them to get a shot off. That call didn't help the Lakers at all. If they would've just started the clock at the appropriate time, the game would've been over sooner and we wouldn't have had to do a jump ball or anything.

He has stepped it up. Was not impressed with the first half of his season at all. This offseason will be very interesting!

I don't think the Lakers even consider Cousins now with injury.

And if Lopez gets a better offer and leaves, so be it.

Sure they'll find a 5 somewhere, just hope it's better than what they have coming off bench.

No idea what team considers Cousins. No idea what The Magic will do if he strikes out on George & James. I imagine resign Randle, but no idea after that. If they can get Cousins on a cheaper deal, who's to say they wouldn't sign him.
