re: Windhorst: AD has instructed Rich Paul to get him to the Lakers exclusively
If AD ends up going to the Lakers I think the major pieces of the deal were agreed to before this latest Rich Paul stunt. It just feels like Rich Paul is trying to get in front of the deal so he can take credit for it. He knows his reputation is in shambles and is trying to establish some credibility with the players.

re: Windhorst: AD has instructed Rich Paul to get him to the Lakers exclusively
Even if we gave the Lakers AD and got nothing in return, they’d still be a 40-48 win team tops.

AD and LeBitch only make up 40% of the players on the court at any given time, and neither is going to play 48 minutes a game. So assuming they both play 36 mpg, that’s 30% of the players on the court at any given time if both play all 82 games.

They won’t play all 82 games. Let’s be generous and say they play 70 games each. That puts their combined actual presence on the court at 30.7 mpg.

That’s 61.4 mpg out of a total of 410. The other 348.6 mpg would be guys besides AD and LeBron.

That team would be average at best. If the breaks go their way, I could see them maybe competing for a 7 or 8 seed.

If the Pels get anything close to the ROI we’ve been discussing on here, the Lakers supporting cast is the west coast equivalent of Solomon Hill, Tim Frazier, Tyreke Evans and Omer Asik.

LeBron and AD won’t be able to carry that hodgepodge of basketball diarrhea farther than the first round, and I would put their odds of even making the playoffs at +/- 50%.

But remember, it’s all about winning. AD wants to go somewhere he can win, so he insists on being traded to a franchise that pretty much guarantees that he won’t win anything of significance for years if ever (during his career).

Lakers supporting case is poo, and it would only get worse if they traded for AD.

Honestly, for them as a franchise, they’re better off just playing out 2019/20 and signing him in free agency in 2020 than trading their below-average players for guys who suck even worse.

I will thoroughly enjoy watching them wallow in mediocrity for the next 3-5 years at a minimum.

re: Windhorst: AD has instructed Rich Paul to get him to the Lakers exclusively
My complete outsider read:

A deal not involving LA is in advanced talks, Boston a likely suspect.

AD wants the Lakers.

Lebron wants to win.

And those two things become hard to square if AD doesn't get to LA soon.

Rich Paul and AD both know that now is realistically the only time to make this happen.

If AD goes to Boston, goes to NY, goes anywhere but the Lakers this offseason, that's probably it. As Lebron is numero uno, and the Lakers are still going to have to go all out to put talent around an ever impatient 35-year-old Lebron. No way they can go another season with one year deals and the youngsters he has demoralized. Moves will get made. Which means, AD to the Lakers becomes a trickier possibility once they trade away Ingram/Ball/Kuzma and draft picks to bring in a Beal or Chris Paul type player and likely fill out their cap space with role players in the process.

Ainge probably knows this as well. Ainge knows the Lakers are going to find a way to spend money and in doing so will very likely box out AD by necessity. Which means the risk is less risky than the pundits suspect.

Ehhh. If you say we get nothing in return a Ball, James, INgram, Kuzma, Davis lineup would win more than 50 games easily....

re: Windhorst: AD has instructed Rich Paul to get him to the Lakers exclusively
so from 29 teams...to two....now to one

again...

His response for the Knicks and Lakers? "Whatever list that came out. That's between my agent and the Pelicans. It's true."

As the questions continued, we soon learned that the Celtics, Lakers and Knicks are not alone on that "list."

"All 29 teams are on that list," Davis said.

Why is everyone upset that AD’s agent is trying to do what his client wants?

If the Pelicans want to be mad. Be mad at themselves for sucking with AD.

And before you say the Lakers also sucked they did not suck with a top five player for six years.

Yesterday AD was ok with 2 teams, and today it's Lakers only.

How is that to be interpreted any other way than desperation on RP's part?

Seems like he knows AD may likely go elsewhere and is pulling out all the stops. Why else would NYK be in play yesterday and then not today?

It is kind of odd the Knicks (and other potential teams) have not been a part of today's flurry of reports.

the knicks assets aren't really assets.
They have the #3 pick, and that's about it.

Because we as Pelican fans realize RP is trying to derail deals that would benefit US Pelican fans. It's not enough to poison our 2018-19 season, RP via LeBron and AD want to screw us for future years. We, you know, the Pelican fans should not be upset? Screw you, pal.
