Need to keep him and have at least ONE homegrown player on the team we can root for.

Little disappointed that with how much THT is getting paid that he’s still bench material, same with newly signed LW4 for MLE.

With Kyrie (and his defense) out of the picture, I can see Austin being a starter.

THT can't shoot, this has always been his issue, he even regressed last year. i will pay close attention to the shooting percentage of AR this season, he has a great stroke, but he wasn't making a lot of open shots. however, he is still miles better than THT in terms of shooting.
AD/LBJ/AR
i suspect the other 2 would be RW(if he is still here) and jones/Bryant.
this is an important year for THT, Nunn is healthy and ready to go now.

No way you start THT with Russ here.

Even if Russ is gone we gotta see if THT improved enough to warrant big minutes.

As of now, starters are likely Westbrook, Reaves, LeBron, AD and Bryant. With Bryant being somewhat necessary because of Westbrook and floor spacing. As well as needing a 5 so AD can play 4.

Closers are another question. For sure Reaves/LeBron/AD most nights. Bryant out with AD at the C. From there you could go a number of directions...and we probably will. Feels like Troy Brown could be in the mix quite a bit on any given night as a more balanced two-way guy. Maybe one of Westbrook/Nunn to give LBJ some possessions off offensively.

The question for me is if we trade Westbrook for any of the remaining packages out there, which of those players can slot in as closers?

His progression has been underrated. He will be a solid player, if not starter in the league. I just want to see some roid muscles on him, because he's often a target on defense.

Walker is a tax payer MLE. Who cares.

Reaves is by far the best fit as neither of those two players can shoot while we will see natural shooting progression from Reaves.

That's the pretext I'm looking at any Russ deal that includes draft sweeteners. We have a lot of middle reliever type talent on the roster (much better than last year). But when it comes time to close, what are our one or two best options...

Honestly... Hanging AR in the startin lineup makes sense if we keep WB.
We have a young guy that is learning from his mistakes.
And an old guy, who refuses to learn from his.

That balance is almost Zen like. Right?

Lakers' Austin Reaves sits down with @Stadium: "I definitely don't pass the eye test and I'm not the most athletic in the world, but I've figured it out so far." On goal of starting role in 2022-23, LeBron and Kobe, believing he's the best golfer in the NBA, and more.
