Default Have a weird feeling Kahwi joining Lakers!!

His family members have been hinting since yesterday .. Damon Jones hinting some huge news is coming well that would be huge. With that said with max slot issue with the July 6 opposed to July 30 and how much Money would be free would not expect any of the top guys to come for less than top $.. I am looking for it and would prefer Kyrie as far as team construction getting him next to Lebron AD and Kuzma would be silly...next couple weeks will be interesting. Also will KD leave the warriors - to be continued..

Nah no way heís going there. Why would you even think that? Especially how he just led the Toronto freakin Raptors to a NBA title.

I have this weird feeling that heís leaving the Raptors but NO WAY to the Lakers he needs to be THE man on a team. The dude is the bad ass of the NBA right now no way he goes there to play 2nd or 3rd fiddle to Lebron and AD

Why would he want to play with a cancer like LeBron?

Someone on the radio (forget who, sorry) said that Rick Kamla (the NBATV guy) told him in private he's 99.99% certain Kawhi is going to LAC, due to his sources. And I believe it.

If so, LAC > LAL no doubt. LAC may be better than LAL regardless, assuming they keep Zubac and Bev.

Kawhi, SGA, Shamet, Zubac, Bev, Gallo, Harrell, Sweet Lou, JRob + whatever GLeaguers coached by Doc is a Top 4 seed in the weakened West. But after Kawhi, they'll still have $20m or so to get some quality depth via FAs.

He's either going to the Clippers or the Lakers.

I'm about 90% sure it's the Clippers. What's his name on First things First... Cris Carter... has contacts within Kawhi's family... he's been saying Clippers all year...

Like I said would be a shock and not expecting it but weird hints been coming out.. with that said crazy how lakers say they are gonna pursue all the top guys and top guys are interested but they donít have full max ? That part doesnít make sense seems like pelicans and lakers have an understanding with that part who knows.

Well if clips get kawhi I can see them trying to unload gallo to also sign someone else. There will be takers, 22mil is fine for him. Sucks for Toronto, idk how they proceed, dont think they even have the cap room. Better hope siakam takes the next step and og develops

If I'm Toronto, and Kawhi has made it clear he wants to go to LA, I try to facilitate a S&T of Kawhi for Gallo.

Gallo doesn't hurt their future numbers and gives them an efficient 18 point guy.

Kawhi is 100% going to the Clippers or staying with the Raptors.

No other teams.

Damn thatís a good suggestion. He fits their blow it up timeline really well with all their big names being free agents in a yr. what would else would you throw in or is it a straight swap

Especially when he just did something equally as impressive as LeBron has ever done, just a few days ago.

Not much since the Clippers, in this scenario, would be where Kawhi wants to go and the can sign him. Ty Wallace or one of our very late seconds. Maybe the Philly future.

Though, I don't think the Clippers FO would be as willing to do that now with the injuries to Klay & KD, who were expected to be the second max targets. Can't see them open up the extra cap space to over pay Khris or Tobias, after dealing Tobias to not want to overpay him
