    So I mean they have to be getting Kawhi plus right? Cause right now they're like a middling Western Conference playoff team.

    Boogie next for LA? That Lakers roster as constituted doesn’t get by Golden State or a healthy Houston

    Amazing how the Lakers is a huge win for us, but it is. East is ours for the taking for many years.

    I mean, yay he's out of the East, but I'll never understand what the Lakers do for Lebron besides being in LA.

    Never thought I'd be happy to see someone that good sign with the Lakers. The West is gonna be fun.

    The East is gonna be run out of Boston and Philly.

    Now I hope Danny goes and gets Kahwi before the Lakers can. Build it around Jaylen and Sac 1st.

    Not sure which I am happier with:

    1) it’s a 4 year deal so we don’t have to do the summer of lebron ever again

    2) he’s out of the east

    2a) he didn’t sign with philly

    Unless he’s definitively healthy and committing long-term...no.

    LeBron in LA makes it less likely that Danny goes after Kawhi.

    hilarious

    The 76ers continue their precipitous drop from their halcyon days of beating the Miami Heat in the first round...

    You haven't let the Lakers' new co-GMs finish their work yet.

    I hate how the Lakers never have to go through the normal rebuilding process like everyone else. Just clear cap space and sign superstars.

    Cavs fans won't be able to afford tickets. Going to have to be celebrities to afford a Laker game now.

    Honestly, why would he sign for 4 years? Hedge against his body breaking down to get the most money? I'd expected one or two years and jump to the next super team.

    My guess is, Lebron wants to move all the kids for veterans and the Lakers said OK, but only if you sign long term. Don't bother renewing your leases Brandon, Kyle and Lonzo.

    And he can't do that on one or two year deals that allow him to pull the ripcord at his own convenience?

    It's top-10 protected in 2019 and 2020, then converts to 2nd rounders. Atlanta is getting nothing from that pick.

    Source? I'm seeing that it's top 10 protected in 2019, top 10 protected in 2020, and if it hasn't yet conveyed, it becomes a 2nd round pick in 2021 and another in 2022:

    Because it's not going to be that team anymore?

    I'd bet there will be no more than three guys from last years team left standing.

    Yeah, sounds about right. Weirdly enough, the Lakers had some decent leverage here, because it was so clear LeBron wanted to be in LA.
