    Now if we can keep Randle and Ingram... yes!

    I think they will try to get Leonard now. Ingram would be the logical choice for a trade with LBJ and Leonard on the roster. I would prefer if they could trade Ball and move Ingram to the point, as LBJ would take the pressure off Ingram in that role. But Pops isn't going to want to deal with that mess.

    Randle can be retained now as they can go over the cap to sign him.

    According to ESPN, Lakers have $1.3 million in cap space, given Randle's cap hold. By my math, they would have $12 million if the stretch Deng, $14 million if they renounce Randle, and $24 million if they stretch Deng and renounce Randle.

    They also have the mini-mid level exception of $4.4 million. Maybe use on Brook Lopez. Maybe on a veteran backup point guard.

    Edit: Rumors that Lakers are interested in Nerlens Noel. He wouldn't come cheap. Also rumors that Chris Bosh is seeking medical clearance to return to playing and wants to join LeBron.

    Lakers have added Lance Stephenson (apparently to be LeBron's personal ear blower) and JaVale McGee. Stephenson is getting $4.5 million.

    Wait out Leonard until next season if San Antonio won't deal for exactly what you want. If he decides to pull a George, so be it and make a run at Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, et al next summer. How could George not even take a meeting with LA? Someone didn't want the pressure......

    Cousins on a 1 year deal, maybe.
