The Kobe Bryant farewell tour has come to an end. This will be the most different Lakers team we've seen in two decades. First and foremost, we need that top-3 pick. Who can we realistically get in free agency? Who would help the most? Who do you hope they don't throw money at? Who stays and who goes? Tons of questions and no answers yet. Excited for the offseason and hopefully the guys come ready to play next season after what was a tough season for them this time around. They all need to be in the gym consistently throughout the summer. Hopefully Kobe's work ethic and dedication rubbed off on the younger guys.

You don't give up a Paul George in his prime for unproven talent, however promising. No chance.

However, I'd give up anyone (or two) they want for PG.

What happened to the days when the Lakers were the team sending washed up stars to other teams for their high draft picks (Magic, Worthy, Scott)? This didn't used to be a quick fix kind of team. Please don't trade this pick Lakers!

My dream draft scenario

Lakers take Ingram/Simmons with the 2nd pick. Take Thon Maker with the 32nd pick.

DRuss
JC
Ingram/Simmons
Randle Nance
Maker

That's a hell of a young core. Luke would have plenty of talent to work with

At this point, Shaw is an overqualified assistant. Great hire.
