They will find a way to sign Schroeder bc they have a man crush on that dude. The dude can’t play offensively
I think the Lakers should probably extend D Lo, if for nothing else a potential trade before the deadline. Also see if they can land either Brook Lopez or Myles Turner. This puts AD back at the 4 and gives them another great defender in the starting rotation. If they can get CP3 on the cheap then that’ll be great but if not see if they can re-acquire Caruso from Chicago. That would take care of the backup point position. Then resign Troy Brown and Tristan to minimum deals, possibly add Drummond on the vet min. Max Christie and Cole Swider are waiting to contribute let’s see how good they are. The Lakers should be fine if those moves can be made
Tristan is a man. AD is a boy.... who sticks their chest out and takes a hit from joker? Tristan
Dude is gonna come back & then use his player option to go play with whomever drafts or signs his son
Vucevic is going to the Lakers and he scored 43points last year, him at the 5 and AD at the 4, and our new 1st round pick!! we’ll see you again chicken Nuggies in the western finals!
The Finals are going on and ESPN is still sucking off the Lakers.
I love Lebron but get off his nuts. They wouldn't have done anything without Athony Davis. Lebron ain't defending nobody. Jokic and Murray Gordon Bruce Brown and Co beat everybody. I think now it's time to look at trading Booker and Durant too 😂😂
Man LeBron James will not retried , l never believe that he was retiring.
Was Malika dating this guy at some point I heard rumors about it
Anthony Davis goes for 40 points 18 rebounds in a game and they act like hes a scrub smfh 🙄
Perkins think the best move is bringing back Tristan Thompson 😂
Aren't Malika and Dave dating lol ?
I like option 2. Extend Reaves and Rui. Pick up Beasley and Bamba’s option. Resign Lonnie Walker. Go for Kyrie or VanVleet. All the while drafting a young talented player at the 17th pick. Just make sure they keep that young core in tact
Jbrown i wud sign 1yr w/ 48m vs 54m/2yr or 60/5ys. I helped yall save n you can sign ppl. Orrrr
I hope lakers stay with lonnie
Why would you get rid of a player who contributed to winning and the culture too, when you can’t replace him? Stop over-reacting to one series and sign him to a team friendly deal. A bit of continuity could go a long way and we haven’t seen that in years
I like Russel....but his ups n downs playoff performance probably wont land him back next season....lakers in dire needs a prolific PG scorers like Kyrie or Dame. That will change the game. And add back dwight howard God sake. The superman is superb in disrupting bigs like jokic.
They go get Van vleet
