I’m wondering if it’s minimum deal or what?

Cousins if he can stay healthy will be better this year. Remember he only came back at the very end of the season. Come next season he will have a lot longer recovery time under his belt.

Alright! Cousins signs a one year contract with the Lakers.

So far it is looking good. Now who will be the point guard? Rondo really tried hard last season, but their was the guy from the G league who also played real good. Slips my mind what his name was.

Caruso

Honestly I don’t know if they will have a true PG to start or not. I can see them putting KCP in that position but Lebron actually be the PG on offense.

Yep! Caruso was not a bad point guard and should be given some consideration.

Unfortunately I can see Kuz going to the bench now. But who knows maybe Cousins will be coming off the bench.

That Is alright! Got to have a strong bench and I believe he prefers coming off the bench. Too much pressure starting with LeBron, AD and others.

It does not do any good scoring a lot with the starting group and then lose the lead with the bench. Got to have a deep bench and sustain what the starting five accumulated.

Kuz actually plays very well with Lebron. Lebron received majority of his assists passing to Kuz and the second place person wasn’t even close. Kuz is a great slasher and off ball player which is what you need next to Lebron. If it was my choice Cousins would be coming off the bench.

Yes I believe the Lakers are going to be tough this season. I really like what Pelinka done with plan B. If the Lakers can stay healthy, the lakers will be up there.

He just signed with Spurs. We had an agreement with him, but he backed out of it due to him being worried with how much playing time he will get after we signed cousins.

This is what happens when you pass a legend like Jerry West.

Exactly! And we hired Magic freaking Johnson who refused to let West be our advisor. SMH!

Right? Lol I mean don’t get me wrong I wanted KL here but now he’s not so let’s move on. And actually had the clippers not have been able to make that insane trade they just received sounded like KL was coming to us. So I give our FO credit. But sounded like Kawhi was a little upset about magic’s Conversation he had with him leaking which I was wondering when I was reading basically word for word what was being said. Magic just can’t help himself. But ultimately we will be ok.

I’m actually impressed with Rob right now. I’m pissed he didn’t trade LBJ lol, but other than that he’s done great. Magic was such trash as an exec.

I tell you one thing, Jerry West and that F.O. can sure keep their mouths shut because I don't think anyone saw that PG13 trade coming. Kawhi definitely knows he can trust them. Can't be mad at that.

Nope! Imagine if we had hired West when he wanted to come here. I bet West would’ve gotten George last year and Kawhi this year without trading our core. Might’ve then traded them for Davis. Who knows, but even though Rob has done a good job this offseason, having West for a couple of years clearly would’ve been better than Magic lol.

Probably....lol. Right now the Clips have the edge IMO on paper. The game still has to be played so it remains to be seen. I think the x-factor is going to be Kuz. If he comes into his own this season then I might have to re-think my assesment.

Yeah, I think they closed the gap today (Lakers) but on paper I still give the slightest edge to the Clips with Beverly, George, Kawhi, Harrell, Zubac, Lou, & Doc.

We have the deeper team now, on paper, but we’ll really have to see how all our players get together. It’ll be interesting. And on paper doesn’t mean much. Either team could have injuries or chemistry issues. Only time will tell.

Lol you knew he wasn’t gonna be trading Lebron! And I agree Magic was basically only good for his relationship skills he has with people but as a decision maker and also keeping things quiet, he was the worst.
