There does not seem to be that much incentive for the Lakers to trade for Leonard. Why give up Ingram, Kuzma, and either ball/hart for Leonard when they can keep that young core and simply add Leonard next season?
Tick tock, tick tock on Bron Bron. The currently assembled Fakers cannot beat the Warriors. To burn one of four of Bron Bron's years on an empty quest (read non-title contention) doesn't make a lot of sense.
Leonard and Bron Bron, along with that veteran band of misfits could beat the Warriors in a seven game series, irrespective of losing Ingram and Kuzma or Ball or Hart.
Hey, they're the Fakers. They just have to wiggle their fake, plastic tinsel-town-ass, and free agents come a runnin'. They don't need picks and young players. They want results now.
