Anyone else scratching their head over the fact that they decided to give KCP 12m instead of Brook? I'm sure there are other players in the league that you can get for 3m for the same amount of production as KCP. His hero ball tendencies is what drove everyone nuts last season - I'm just glad LeGM's here.

No, I have no issue with bringing KCP back over Lopez. I've a huge problem with bringing in Rondo/Stephenson/McGee in and overlooking Lopez. Lopez should have been signed before Stephenson/Rondo. TBH, I see zero need for Stephenson or Rondo with the team we have, especially not Stephenson.

What was Magic thinking paying $1.5 million MORE for Stephenson than what Lopez got paid by Milwaukee? Completely inexcusable.

I'm baffled by them not bringing back Lopez too. I think it's pretty obvious at this point they plan on not playing with a true C for long stretches this season. They also must think Wagner can contribute right away.

Are you talking about Brook Lopez who went to Stanford and hardly became a problem in the locker room in his entire career?
The same guy who was top 5 in contested 2's just last season?

The same guy who was top 15 in the ENTIRE league for blocked shots, 11th among centers?

Apparently he is not "crazy" enough like Lance or had a DUI record or who had a run in with other players like Rondo?

Ok then Randle is not a true center who was the most consistent Laker last year. The guy pushed himself and was able to switch to smaller players etc.
