Why? This organization is going into a full rebuild mode. Who cares if there is a distraction for a few months when there is a non-zero chance you can get Zion (Knicks) or Tatum?As much as I hate to say it, if it's all of the Lakers young players, picks and salary relief it's not that bad of an offer. Maybe Boston offers something better this summer but it's probably in New Orleans' best interest to end this before the trade deadline. It's not an ideal situation to let linger over a franchise for many more months.
The Lakers’ offer is still mediocre. Their assets just aren’t that good.
