18 million pay cut per year for two stars:
Lakers Cap Space: 47.5 million
LeBum + George = 65.7 million

It is a huge mistake to renounce the rights to Julius Randle, Brook Lopez, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

Dump Jordan Clarkson, Lakers will be swept by Rockers in the playoffs.

Based on the NBA's 2018 salary-cap projection of $101 million, James will get up to $35.4 million, while Cousins and George can top out at $30.3 million.

The math doesn't actually work for the Lakers, who are looking at roughly $47.5 million in space once they renounce the rights to Julius Randle, Brook Lopez, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Corey Brewer and Andrew Bogut while waiving Ivica Zubac, Thomas Bryant and Tyler Ennis.

This is the best idea,

Let Deng play 40 minutes and have 25 shot attempts each game for 2 months,

If he score 20 pts per game, trade him for Monroe,

If he score 30 pts per game, trade him for Boogie Cousins.,

If he score 40 pts per game, trade him/Clarson for Ben Simmons + Red Dick,

Genius.

Trading Clarkson would also allow us to sign two max guys and keep Julius, who's had a serious breakout year.

Even if we don't get two max guys, I'm ready to roll with Zo, Kuz, Ingram and Randle as our long term core moving forward. We'd have JC, Nance, and a ton of cap room and all of our picks back to go shop for shooting.
