First one was put Deng in the package for DeMarcus Cousins, no Ingram, No Ball, no Kuzma. LOL, crazy!!

Not an easy choice to make, but a potential free agent addition like Paul George or LeBron James could handle the small forward duties. Luring one of them to Los Angeles would also be much easier with a lineup that consisted of Ball, Kuzma and Cousins.
