Some think that Magic had advance notice that LeBron was coming to LA.


NY having advance notice that Durant is coming is quite possible.

The tea leaves certainly suggest it. We cleared cap space with the JC/Nance deal to CLE last year. NYK cleared loads of cap space with the Porzingis trade. I simply don't believe it's a coincidence.

So if Kieff comes:

Ingram or Bron/Rondo (Ball)
Bullock/KCP (Hart)
Ingram or Bron/Stephenson
Kuzma/Morris
McGee/Muscala/Chandler

At full fitness:

Ball/Rondo
Ingram/Bullock/KCP
Bron/Hart/Stephenson
Kuzma/Morris
McGee/Muscala/Chandler

Who’s the 2nd star NY will bring in?

They can also trade their pick to get AD and make it a 3 headed monster.

Magic probably got an advance notice about PG too last summer which is why I think we shifted in trying for Kawhi.

Can also see they Magic probably getting hints/notice that KD or Kawhi might not want to come here which is why he probably tried to sell the farm to trade for AD too.

Markieff Morris would be a good signing for us off the bench. Hard nose D, provides offense, toughness, and he wouldn't have a problem playing his role, appose to Melo, I think he would have a problem coming off the bench and playing limited minutes. I think Melo would give us a really big boost though, just don't know if he'll buy into playing D, coming off the bench, limited minutes, and possibly not finishing games.

per Chris Haynes

Quote:
Agent: Free agent Markieff Morris cleared to return; Rockets, Lakers interested in his services


Quote:
Free-agent forward Markieff Morris has been cleared to play after recovering from a neck injury and has garnered interest from the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers, his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, told Yahoo Sports.

Morris has been sidelined since Dec. 26 after being diagnosed with transient cervical neurapraxia.

On Monday, he sought a second opinion from renowned spine specialist Dr. Robert Watkins of Los Angeles and was cleared to resume full basketball activities.

Last week, the Washington Wizards traded Morris and a 2023 second-round draft pick to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Wesley Johnson, and the eight-year veteran was waived by the Pelicans in a subsequent move.

Morris, 29, is expected to pick his next team this week, sources said.

In 34 games this season, Morris is averaging 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds.

Rockets are pretty stacked at the big man spot, why would Markieff go there to ride the pine? Capela should be coming back soon and Faried has been balling out, there big man rotation is set with Capela/Faried/NeNe... if he comes here he will get a lot of minutes.

Hahaha you really think LeBron's gonna go in cruise mode? Geez

For the record, Raptors and Rockets seem pretty stacked already, so you'd think there'd be mutual interest (I think Kieff wants minutes, but doesn't care if he comes off the bench)

LeBron on cruise control? We can't make stuff up and
then build an argument with any level of truth behind it.

“You should not have passed on me this summer.”

I hope they have one of Ks coming or it’s going to look bad.

PG13 still hasn't proven he can beat math teacher Joe Ingles in the playoffs.

So the jury is still out...

I hope the Lakers go after Vucevic this summer. Seems that he gives Joel Embid a run for his money head to head and he can stretch the floor.

He's a very good player, leaves all on the floor...they'll be lots of
players to choose from in FA but Lakers should go for realistic targets
and not end up with leftovers...

The Lakers want readymade Superstars and will waste their time pursuing them

They just got lucky with old LeBron coming here

No we aren't. Nene is done and Faired is a backup C for us. Neither can be used as a PF in our system. We are lacking forwards, so much that Harden starts at the 3 now. Tucker is playing too many minutes. We've been playing Green and d-league dudes too much at the 3. He'd play over every forward but Tucker and maybe Shumpert.

you talking about defense? Cause you guys still just run that one man offense, right?
