The only all-star the Lakers could acquire for Zo and a pick based on our current cap restrictions is Kemba Walker. That is, of course, unless we stretch Deng, but this would be a mistake long term. Walker isn't an ideal teammate for LeBron (virtually none of Kemba's buckets were off assists last year) and would be an unrestricted FA in 2019.
Let's see how Zo plays out w/ LeBron. He flourished with Holiday and Alford as fellow playmakers/scorers at UCLA, I expect his spot up % to go up 3-5% this season.
Lonzo is the only Laker LeBron took the time to talk to after a game. He obviously said something more than "Good game, young fella" based on the video...I think LeBron wants to kick the tires a bit before we package him up if the right deal comes along.
