An interesting situation since LBJ best position on defense is at PF. I say just leave AD at center. Lumbering men are nearly extinct and his defense is better utilized helping off a center vs a perimeter shooting pf.

Spend some peanuts on a reserve traditional big imo

I completely agree, a traditional big would basically be there much like GS. I’m thinking more load management for AD during the season against the Steven Adams/Kanter/Jordan.

A majority of the time the team will definitely be AD/James/Kuz/G/G.

Remains to be seen how Pelinka fills the rest of the roster. Can’t believe he messed up the trade with the Pelicans by not accounting for a third max slot. For someone touted to be a CBA expert, he’s been underwhelming.

They got AD in spite of management.

Also the Rambi being that entrenched in decision making is just sickening.

It’s a good thing they are in LA. These fuckers would get no one if they were in Minnesota or so.

Depending on how they fill the rest of the roster is how I’ll judge Pelinka. For now he’s ranking super low. He also signed off on the dumbass roster moves under Magic.

Lol my friends are so upset, but I figure we still get Davis, so Leonard was a bonus. We all figured he was going to the Clippers before the Lakers rumors started so he used that as leverage

Lakers have also picked up Danny Green, so there's some shooting.

Yeah, and that was initially what we needed before the Kawhi hoopLA started, so mission accomplished, I say.

Troy Daniels also adds shooting off the bench for cheap. That was such an Achilles heel last year, especially free throw shooting in close games
