: for a good piece that will fit, yes/no?
Ball can play alongside them, he's no ballhandler/scorer/playmaker the same way LeBron, Ingram, and Rondo are. Pelinka and Magic even wanted Isaiah Thomas to play alongside Zo and Ingram.
Zo's more of a playmaker in the Boris Diaw/Kyle Anderson sense. He's not great at creating off the dribble, and even worse at shooting while moving. Spot up only, unless the defense lets him walk up the court into a 3.
Besides, Rondo will not be back next year unless he gets the MLE. At this point Javale McGee would probably get that mid-level exception money, or another big if McGee signs elsewhere. Lakers have to renounce Rondo & KCP to sign a max free agent this offseason. Also either Lance or Beasley have to go this summer to free up that $32 Million.
