Could a reunion be in the cards? I'd be down with that.

Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball has signed with Rich Paul of Klutch Sports. “For me, it was an easy call and it was the right time to make that call.”

The Lakers may have capspace at the end of next season. Ball is similar to Rondo in many ways, and would have same chemistry as Rondo has with AD. However, it would first have to be a situation where the Pelicans no longer want to pay him and just let him walk as a FA. This would not happen any other way.

Even with Lavar drama I would be happy to take Lonzo back. He can be perfect replacement once Rondo is finished. Also he has lots of upside , can grow to good third or fourth option. If possible in any way. Why not.

Pels aren't going to just let him walk. They'll trade him first and we don't have the right assets to make a trade for Zo (b/c the Pels have said assets ). I thought Zo and Zion had good chemistry.

Hopefully it'll happen someday. Probably won't be right now, though.

First off, not sure the Pels are planning on letting him go. IMO trading Holiday seems like the much better move considering the team and situation.

Secondly, why would having a young ball handler that facilitates the offense, plays defense and shoots 37% on 6 3pt attempts a game be a "bad" thing?

Most around here can embrace knuckleheads like Howard or Smith but still hold animosity towards Ball? Whose biggest issues were being a 19 yr old that struggled to meet lofty expextations as the Lakers savior and a crazy media whore of a Father.

Lakers would only be so lucky to be in position to bring him back.

Just a reminder, but Zo's massive caphold for 2021 means the 2021 plan would also be gone if you traded for Zo.

There’s only two teams I know that really wanted him. One was Phoenix, but I think that ship has sailed, and the other is Chicago. Also, I’m sure the Knicks can take a flyer out because what do they have to lose?

Some think this is a sign that either he didn’t like/receive his extension number or he heard that Josh Hart has an extension coming.

I’m a fan of all the ex-young core, but when it comes to Zo signing with Klutch, it’s who cares I guess.

Zo may be the type of player who would try to hit UFA in 2022. He's still getting paid well ($14m QO in 2021-22 season) so he can take a gamble on himself.

I liked Zo. I think he would do well on this team with Vogel's defense oriented team.

Zo was 37.5% from 3s on 6.3 attempts a game. He's improving on that end. Even improved his horrid FT%.

He would be able to take some of the ball handling duties to give LBJ a break. Pipe dream but it could happen if he's gone Klutch.

Pelicans are gonna trade Zo. They don’t like his game, Zo is not happy in New Orleans and they hate Rich Paul.

I thought he and Zion had great on court chemistry, much more than BI/Zion.

Would Philly do Embiid for Ingram + Ball + #13? Philly needs a wing and a playmaker. Though I'm not sure they would want a PG who can't space the floor, given that that's their issue...

Zo idolizes Lebron. Unfortunately they aren’t the same talent wise at that age. Zo’s in his own head too often, and it shows with his inability to drive to the basket. Lebron’s been telling him to do that since day one. Zo’s still young, and he can still become a beast, but he needs to start now. If I were him, I’d call Bron everyday until he agrees to help with whatever he can to make Zo’s game better.

I don't see Embiid/Zion as a good fit to be honest. Both need the same spots on the floor.

I personally wouldn’t give up that much for Embiid. But I’m not a Pels fan.

Hard pass on Zo. He is so bad offensively and would be practically unplayable in the playoffs.

He also isn’t a true creator so his role would be 3-D and really you can find a better, cheaper option without the drama.

Exactly and he’s not even 3D type as he’s a horrible erratic 3 point shooter.
