: : One key and necessary Laker addition is a back up low post efender. When McGee goes to the bench, the Lakers have no answer defending the likes of LeMarcus Aldridge, Yokich and other bigs in the low post . Adding Lucas Nogueia, Tarik Black or even trading for Tyson Chandler would be a wise move and improve their team immensely !
: : Coach J
: Trading for Chandler is nearly impossible, as Rondo and KCP are the only two salaries that could be used to match 80% of Chandler's $13.8 Million salary.
: Neither is likely to agree to go to Phoenix, since all vet players on one year deals have automatic no-trade clauses. It's possible an Eastern Conference team would step in to facilitate the deal, but chances are the Lakers have to wait until March 1 and hope the Suns buy him out rather than find a trade partner.
: Black and Nougiera could help but the Lakers would have to cut Zubac or Beasley, and they want to see what happens with Wagner before waiving people. Also Johnathan Williams III plays with heart and knows how to take charges, despite being undersized.
Don't sweat it. Anthony Davis is going to opt out this summer and he'll be here before you know it. Lakers will also add another impact player, most likely Leonard or Butler. The KCP era will be ending soon in LA.
