Lots of moving parts to obtain non-playoff-tested players to quickly adapt to LBJ/AD on a team whose only goal is winning ring - this year

Appreciate your effort to obtain Murray + Jones that doesn’t “Move the Needle” while losing continuity, draft choices, playoff-tested players, cash and youth

Adding Kyle Lowry would be a much better option that brings strategic outside shooting, winning character (along reuniting with Vincent to bring some “hard hat” mentality symbolic of Heat Culture - if there is a buy-out)

Another possible buyout option (Gordon Haywood) would be a better pickup because of his outside shooting, size and playmaking skills - even at this stage of his career

LBJ likes veterans who are battle-tested

Just when Dlo's game is coming around he's in trade rumors! That has to hurt his game. ^^ Lowery's age and salary IMO are deterrents.

Pass. Cost is too steep. Doesn't help make the team better.

This trade does not get under the tax.

For the team to compete, they need to spend, not save money.

I think Lowry ends up with PHI but that's me. TBD

Lakers don't get under the tax, as noted, it's staying under the apron that's required

Where is the "new head coach" article? How each would use current personnel.
