fuegoPels shouldn't take anything less than Kuz, Lonzo, Ingram, Zubac and a 1st round pick, and the Lakers should jump at that opportunity. As good as these pieces have seemed at times, Lebron's window is closing and they don't really fit the timeline. Their only real chance of getting him would be an offer like this, because the Pels can just wait out lowball offers that contain only 2 of the young pieces until Boston's restrictions no longer apply. Boston could definitely put together a more appealing trade package in my opinion, especially considering Lonzo and Ingram's falling trade stock this season.They'd be mad to give away that much tbh, the goal this season for the lakers was always development, as soon as they didn't land the kawhi trade. They said that a while back, next season a bunch of really good players become free agents, that's the Lakers target
If you want a top 5 player in the league and the best at his position you have to pay the price. 29 teams should be on the phone right now scrambling to put together an offer, and the Lakers have to do whatever they can to get Lebron a 2nd star to play with as it becomes increasingly implausible that one will sign in free agency.
Kuzma is the only player that has proven to be a good fit with Lebron, and the Pels will hang up on any offer that doesn't include him. Lonzo and Ingram have been underwhelming this season and the league execs have noticed, it has been reported that teams have lost some interest in both prospects.
Sure, the "goal for the season" was developing the young pieces, but the possibility of an AD trade trumps that in the overarching process of bringing another championship to the Lakers.
