: : You want to avoid another Paul George scenario
: One problem is, Orlando wouldn't trade Vucevic for KCP and Wagner, as the Magic are 7th in the Eastern Conference and apparently up-and-coming. They have a rotation of Isaac, Ross, Fournier, and Augustin at the 1-3. KCP wouldn't fit with that and Bamba isn't ready to play 30 minutes a game.
: Also, KCP would have to agree to the trade, which he wouldn't (players playing on one year deals after their initial rookie contract ends have an automatic NTC), as he knows the Lakers need him more than Orlando. KCP needs to showcase himself as he too is in a contract year.
: Now, if the Lakers should offer Ingram, the Magic do it, except the salaries wouldn't match. Ball plus Svi and/or Wagner might work, I didn't check.
