Durant will most likely stay at OKC and LeBron in CLE. So lets be a little realistic. Throw max money at those 3 players. We can afford it. Horford is now a legit 3 point threat to alongside his hustle, smart play, mid range jumper and real good defense at C. The fact that he is short for C and is mobile means he would be a great defender at PF. Whiteside is a defensive beast who leads the league in blocks and is still basically a rookie. If his low post offense ever improves even a bit he will be a monster player. Mike Conley is a pro PG who makes the right play and is good at every facet of the game, can hit open jumpers, play the pick and roll, find the open man, and can defend other lead guards with skill. If we spend all our FA money on these not so big names and not so super stars we will be better off than trying to land a Durant or LeBron and flaming out. Lock these 3 guys up with max deals right away. Sell them on the future they can write for themselves here in LA where they will be considered a BIG 3 even if they arent household names right now. Throw in the young guys already on the Lakers and this team is a solid NBA championship contender for many many years. PG: Mike Conley, Lou Williams SG: D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young SF: Jordan Clarkson, Anthony Brown PF: Al Horford, Julius Randle C : Hassan Whiteside, Larry Nance Kobe Bryant as Head Coach. 3 PG's in the starting lineup with a fourth coming off the bench to make the fastest, slickest, most creative backcourt/swingman group in the NBA... and Swaggy P to sop up whatever minutes are left over. The NBA is going smaller and faster for the most part so i think we can get away with guys like Clarkson or Russell playing SF. Randle can even play some SF if needed for matchips. Our 3 man front court rotation would be sweet with Horford, Whiteside, and Randle. They could each average around 33 MPG and be all stars. Young and Williams have their issues obviously but they are signed for relatively cheap contracts for their ability to produce in bunches off the bench. Tough squad IMO with a great 8 man rotation in the playoffs.
