Like most reports involving the Lakers these days i put no trust in it, but if true the Pels org is dumber than i thought. Why would you purposely leak publicly that your not taking the Lakers proposal when the last time the trade was in talks they were supposedly offerning four young guys & taking back a bad contract. Now they have the ability to do all that along with a top 4 pick. even if you have no intention on dealing with them, just having other teams look at the Lakers proposed offer would force other teams to come strong. If they are gonna push this i'm not dealing with the Lakers thing... they are pretty much begging the Knicks to lowball them, because Boston's package is looking nowhere near as appealing as it did during the ASB. the 14th, and two early 20 picks this year? Tatum who's hype has died down a bit? AD is signing up to play with Jaylen brown and 34yr old horford in Boston?
