    So.....when is the package deal with the Pels, Lakers and Hawks going to be announced?

    Will the Lakers have to secure a verbal okay from a max player first? They have until the 6th of July to secure that ok.

    Woj is so mad. Shams beat him to the trade and the pick. That's how I know Jeanie/LeBron have shut Woj out

    Nikola Vucevic makes the team a twin towers threat.

    PG: LeBron, Caruso
    SG: Ross, Lance
    SF: Green, Korver
    PF: Davis, Kuzma
    C : Vucevic, Davis

    LeBron handles the basketball and has 4 capable shooters surrounding him at all times.
    Defensively LeBron can hide behind the two 7 footers and the two 3 and D swingmen.
    The bench features opportunistic scorers/shooters like Kuz, Korver and Lance.
    Vucevic is not the sexy name but next to AD it multiplies the teams natural advantages while also providing insurance in case of an AD injury.

    Horton Tucker getting Draymond comparisons. Smaller Draymond, couple inches. Hefty like Draymond coming out of college

    @BleacherReport
    Pelicans/Lakers next year “When I see @kylekuzma on the court I’m tryna bust his ass...After that, we’ll have a glass of wine”-Josh Hart

    I would never let someone that plays video games for a living beat me in basketball.

    That’s weird because Josh Hart actually sucks at video games, or at least the one he plays most (fortnite)

    Shams broke the news that LAL had traded into the Magic's spot in the 2nd round. Or bought the pick or whatever. Also broke the news of who they were taking.

    Then Woj reported both minutes after he did. Woj is out of the loop

    The guard version.
    The jumpshot is shaky like Draymond's as well, but not broken like Draymond's. At 18 he has time

    I’m not sure he had that much time. We have a very top heavy roster right not, and we need bodies on the floor.

    He's going to the G-league so they're giving him time.
    They're playing for the championship this season, so 18 year olds are not permitted

    Latest reports are that LeBron wants D'angelo.
    He and Kuz making googly eyes at each other on twitter.
    Fuck Nick Young.

    Solid chance we may not see Horton Tucker in a full scale role until the last year of LeBron's contract. Just basing that on his age alone. You don't see 19-20-21 year olds in championship caliber rotations unless they're special.

    Now if you're telling me Horton Tucker is special, I hope you're right. But he fell to the mid 2nd round so it seems a lot of teams feel he's not

    Doubt it. His biggest suitor is Phoenix so this is probably about leveraging a better contract out of them. But of course the media is all over it.

    Lakers would be dumb as rocks to give him $20M+ per. Kid can't be trusted to do right, certainly not in LA. If you can't keep your nose clean in your contract year, with $100M hanging in the balance, it's likely a long term maturity issue. Hopefully somebody else pays for that mess. I do not think Jason Kidd is the proper mentor for D'angelo Russell..they'd get caught doing some shit together most likely [no homo]

    Like this guy. Horton-Tucker's teammate in high school @ Chicago powerhouse Simeon. Lakers signed him to a 2-way contract. Give this lefty a shot over paying DLo $20M+. He's 22, so closer to being ready to play

    Hard pass on DLO for the Lakers

    Ralph Mason@Ralph_MasonJr
    FWIW I think the interest is more on DLO's (agent) side than the Lakers. He's running out of suitors with cap space







    ..as he should. Who tries to sneak weed onto a plane, in a soft drink stash compartment? Only a true jackass

    He’s the best reporter in the business still, he broke the biggest deal of the offseason already. He’s just a pile of shit at the analyst part of his job
