Well Lakers better trade for kawhi asap
They're saying he might sit out next season
Anyways, if he does join LeBron then Lakers have a real good shot
I can just see it now , all the bandwagoners that wore purple and gold circa 2010 in the bay will once again put away their GSW stuff and pull out the #8/#24 jerseys and be "real" Lakers fans

No way. The Spurs have no leverage anymore. Bron knows the Lakers won't contend for the title this year. No point of giving up a king's ransom for a guy who will come on his own accord in a year.

Spurs' leverage was the possibility for Bron not joining LA without Kawhi. Now that he's there they're screwed.

GS just reloaded. Unbelievable. Now GS is going to have a inside game. Pass it to the post, and DC goes one on one. If you double team, then pass it back outside and" BANG" a 3 pointer. Teams are going to get blown out this year by GS. Who's going to take them out?

I agree that Spurs lost some leverage when LBJ signed but PG13 showed that a one year pitch goes a long way. If Kawhi gets sent to Boston or Philly he could fall in love. Lakers need to pony up now. Plus do you really want to waste a year of LBJ's prime?

This will go one of two ways: Boogie comes in humble, helps GS to a 3-peat, and refurbishes his reputation around the league OR he ruins team chemistry and causes Klay to leave next offseason.

I see your point but at least from what I've been reading, NBA execs around the league are very convinced that this guy won't change his mind. They wouldn't be surprised if he sits out all of next season just so he can make it to LA.

What little respect I had left for the NBA front office, I just lost. How in the world did they just let GS sign Cousins? 1 year for $5M? How is that not blatantly obvious that he took a massive pay cut so they could win another ring? Such a bunch of crap, haha

I don't get the LeBron to LA thing either. I'm not sure what he's going to achieve there. I don't think anyone will compete with GS again next season now, and certainly not the Lakers.

Meanwhile I'm over here waiting for the Rockets to do something but I'm not seeing much potential for us. Frustrating!

Cousins went on the market and had no takers, nobody wanted to pay him the money he was looking for. He is coming off a major injury so that probably put off a lot of teams, plus he is known for an attitude in the locker room. So in reality he did not take a massive pay cut, GS was the only team to take a risk on him.

That offer was back in January as reported by ESPN, the Pelicans removed the offer shortly after Cousins decided not to accept it. At the seasons end no offer was made again for Cousins by the Pelicans.

Crazy move by Toronto, and stupid. Leonard obviously wants to go to LA, as he told the Spurs several times. If he really wants to go, he'll just opt out after next season and sign with either the Lakers or Clippers and take slight pay cut. And then Toronto is screwed....they just traded their highest scorer and then Kawhi leaves

I thought like this too originally, but it's not stupid at all. Demar would've opted out of his deal a year later for more money anyway. If Kawhi wants to leave after this season, we can sign-and-trade his ass to LA, with the hope that MAYBE they'd be willing to part with a Brandon Ingram-type dude to make it happen. Once Lowry's contract is up the year after, Toronto currently only has Norman Powell on it's books - which means incredible cap flexibility. If Kawhi decides to stay, Toronto still should have all kinds of cap space to bring in talent to surround the guy. I'm hearing Kevin Love or Jimmy Butler as possible trade targets at the moment.

While I'm as disappointed as anyone that we gave up Demar, the value we gave up relative to what we got (potential top 5 player) makes it a no-brainer whether Kawhi decides to leave or not.

Hmmm, that makes a little more sense at least. Just crazy, there is no loyalty in sports anymore, from players or organizations. I get that it's a business at the end of the day, but man....

Y'all better build Demar a statue or something at least

I.T getting shipped from the Celtics ended any resemblance of loyalty from a pro sports standpoint in my humble opinion.

I'd love to see him get a statute in front of the ACC, err, Scotiabank Arena. He was the heart & soul of Toronto basketball.

Raptors forever: "it sucks how we can never keep or attract any star players to play for us long term"

Demar 2016: "I'm in, let's do this"

Raptors now: "cya buddy"
