With the addition of Boogie, a top five player at his position, Golden State has no weaknesses in their starting lineup.
As now constructed without Leonard, the Lakers are obviously not better than Golden State or Houston, but if they get into the playoffs as a 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th seed, they could face off against several teams in the first round that today look to have a more impressive arsenal: Utah, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, and Minnesota.
Reports shortly followed that George - who has been connected with the Lakers for much of the last two years - will re-sign with the Thunder on what is reportedly a four-year, $137 million contract.
Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry told reporters a week later the team "obviously" wants Cousins back. The Lakers would be giving up a lot of their young core and future stars but ultimately, setting themselves ahead to be favorites to take out the 2018-19 championship and de-throne the Warriors. All three have a history with James, and it will make for interesting theater, at least - if not necessarily brilliant results on the court. And, from a basketball perspective, the Spurs are already in a position to move on from Tony Parker at the guard spot.
Defeat to Belgium sets up Englands biggest game for decade: Southgate
Jose Pekerman has refused to entertain the prospect of seeing Colombia´s stuttering World Cup campaign end at the first hurdle. So now the pressure begins to build for England and Gareth Southgate . "We've still got some work to do".
In the video above JJ Reddick was included in the video, because it was flimed before he re-signed with the 76ers. The Sixers now can pursue depth pieces to fill out their roster, presumably including another shooter on the wing, perhaps another wing defender and a backup center to fill in minutes behind star Joel Embiid.
Leonard can become a free agent next summer.
That's a tricky area to maneuver, so the Silver and Black might be better off finding a trade package before the season starts.
Cousins was seen as one of the other marquee players in this free agency period and, besides Kawhi Leonard, was one of the most valuable pieces. Either way, they'll be without Kawhi, and spend the majority of last season without him anyway.
