The pelicans might not have any choice, from the news circulating now Danny Ainge is adamant that D Celtics will only trade for AD if he guarantees them that he will resign this is because Some nba insiders are saying AD only wants to sign long term for the lakers so if both of these are true then the lakers package might become the best available cause i don't see any other teams with better assets.
As for Butler this is another clear case of players fitting on paper but not on the court. Although I really do think that their problem is spacing if they can get a good stretch 4 then, the only problem will remain one of coaching
Celtics also have very good assets too, better than the Lakers if I must say.

What of AD to the Warriors, trade Klay and Draymond and maybe Mckinnie or Cook.

Just saying

Jimmy Butler has an attitude problem. This is the 3rd team he is having problem with! These GM's just don't learn

Legacy wise Boston is the proper landing spot for AD,If he goes to LA he would just be another chapter in the ongoing LeBron legend. His people should be telling him this.

Not enough touches to go around is what I think the problem is. Though it was working for a bit with butler as the go too buckets guy in crunch time.

God forbid bad thing.
We're praying KD should leave(seems unlikely with recent statement). Though,that trade package isn't enough.

Celtics have the most assets to trade but their GM wants a guarantee from AD that he will resign with them when his contract ends and as for GSW klay is entering free agency at the end of this season so he is not actually an asset for a trade, as for Green the Pelicans already have mitrovic and randle, unless they will retrade both guys for picks and start again from scratch that is not a sensible trade(IMO it will just make them the miami of the west).
For the lakers Ingram + Ball and 2 first round picks should do it especially if AD refuses to sign the super max at the end of the season

Depends on how you look at it, in Boston the question will always be is it AD's team or Kyrie's?
In LA on the other hand James is at the tail end of his prime, so in 2-3 seasons it will become AD's team. The lakers have experience in dealing with that kind of scenario...heck their GM Magic lived through it. when Magic was drafted it was Kareem's team after a couple of years it became Magic's team without a fuss

It won't be a question cause AD is undoubtedly better.
The age difference isn't as wide as that between magic and Kareem. James still has four years of serious basketball if he serious about his GOAT challenge his body of work isn't complete.

Then the question is why did Kyrie leave the cavs, his main reason was simply so that he can go be the Alpha on a championship team. How will that work out? Not everybody is steph.
I respect Lebron but there is no way, he is still the best player on a team with AD in 4 years time. Come on he will be 38 by then.

One of the most disappointing hires in recent times. He's been demystified by his inability to lead this Timberwolves team anywhere.

The closest player to LBJ in terms of physique and durability is Karl Malone and he was the best player on the jazz till may be his last year with the Lakers. With modern medicine bron could stretch that. Can't be better than AD though,if they get him.

I think the news that came out was that kyrie heard he was being package for a trade.
Sharing the spotlight with AD is different than Sharing it with LBJ with the former you at least get to be the star sometimes.

Lakers no be only LeBron. They're missing one other starter and their best bench player. Even Cavs are depleted too. What were you expecting?'

They barely sneaked into the playoffs last year if not for Paul Millsap who was injured for over 2/3rds of the season and couldn't help the Nuggets. Now they are outside the playoffs spots again despite increasing their depth. His calling card is supposed to be defense but they are still defending poorly so what gives?

Tom Thibodeau sacked at long last. Wolves needs a coach that can replicate what is going in milwakee and with the raptors. Get a coach that will play a system that suits your best players simple. wiggins is in IMO another derozan just stick him to his midrange game. Also they need to give the rookie Okogie more minutes the kid brings energy for that team on both sides of the court

Depends on who they get, if its AD then he is the best player for at most 2 more seasons. But if it is some like kemba, klay, or butler, then maybe he can be the best for 4 more years.
