    So the Lakers are morphing into an older version of the Cavs?
    Thanks Pelicans Report - I get a laugh or three every day reading this thing. Hoping the magic returns to the SKC soon.

    No worries, the collateral damage will last for a long long time...at least 7 years. They have no draft picks ��

    But yeah.
    Buit Chris Broussard is 94% certain he's going to the Lakers, and Woj thinks he "more likely" is going to the Lakers.

    Of course all that's before the ESPN idiot jedi mind trick ("go to the Lakers for us Kawhi") machine found out he's meeting with toronto again today.

    Believe it or not, Jalen has been right quite a few times. I remember distinctly he called Kevin Durant going to Golden State, and people called him crazy and there was no way he was leaving OKC. After that season.....

    And I may be wrong on this, but I think he said LeBron would go to Miami? Don't quote me on that, the details are fuzzy in my head right now

    What!? You are hopping off the Jazz? I donít think the Clippers are on the same level as the Jazz with Kawhi.. IMO the Clippers over achieved big time last season and the Jazz underachieved.. The Jazz have made 2 huge additions while the Clippers have done nothing but rely on Alexander to get better..

    Josh Hart is basically a bizarro world Eric Gordon. It's hard to not love this dude.

    So most likely Iggy ain't going to the Lakers, unless they can find a 3rd team to buy him out.

    The Memphis Grizzlies do not intend to give forward Andre Iguodala a buyout before the season and are actively exploring the trade market for the former Finals MVP, league sources told ESPN.

    Ha! I love Memphis. Laker fans are imploding on this one as well. They've already written him down on their roster.

    With good reason. They've given up everything to get AD. And waited while all the guys who can improve their team around just AD and LeBron were signed up.

    Their only real chance to contend is to form a big 3. If Kawhi goes to the Clippers somehow? That would be too perfect. They lose Kawhi AND little brother can start kicking the crap out of them in their own city.

    I get why you'd call it good reason, but I'd also call it unwarranted. Is it fair to say they have good reason to be mad, but that the good reason only exists because they had unwarranted expectations?

    I think it's fair for people to question the Jazz being real contenders right now. They may have made two huge additions but they lost several key players as well and a lot of depth. It's really going to come down to how well the new roster compliments each other and of course injuries.

    Have they really lost a lot of depth though? I know they've lost some (Favors being an obvious example) but their roster still looks fairly deep to me. The only real hole is at power forward, on my knowledge.

    Some of them are even saying the Lakers should just wait until Kawhi decides before they execute the trade. They think with so many teams involved, no ones going to back out of the deal if they wait a couple more days. Totally oblivious to the ramifications throughout the league if they arbitrarily chose to do this.

    There's absolutely no way the trade is getting delayed. I've seen a few guys on twitter bandy this around, and like you're saying, they're oblivious to the reality of the situation.

    Delaying the trade means that we wouldn't get to play Hayes, Silva, or NAW in Summer League. Atlanta has already agreed to trade Solomon Hill, but they need to execute it as a separate trade after the multi-team deal involving LA. They think Atlanta are just going to wait to get Hunter and to do their completely unrelated Hill trade for the Laker's sake?

    Not only that, but we've traded for Favors. We can only do the Favors trade because we're doing it before his contract gets guaranteed with the Jazz. His guarantee date? The 6th! If we push the date back after the 6th, we can't get Favors and that also means the Jazz can't complete their Bogdanovic signing.

    There is no way on this planet that New Orleans, Utah, Atlanta, and Memphis are all going to just shrug their shoulders, allow their trade deals to fall through, just so LA can wait another few days before not even getting Kawhi anyway.

    LA fans are delusional.

    mostly it means players who've already given verbal agreements can't back out once everything goes official

    July 6th is the official date for transactions but yes, the longer this goes on the better. If Kawhi waits until after the 6th then the Lakers lose their max slot. They would only have like 28m to offer him.

    Leonard could get $68.1 million for a one-year deal with one option year; a two-plus-one deal would max out at about $106 million.
