    Ryan Hollins is correct. CP3 would not fit chemistry wise with LA becuase not only he does get along with Rondo, he does not get along with Cousins. CP3 is a better off in Philadelphia because they need a floor general.

    Would the league even allow the lakers to buy out a 158 million dollar contract of Chris Paul's and sign him for the league minimum or does the league have no decision in the matter?The only other think if I read right is Chris Paul can forfeit some or all of his money on the buyout and sign with the lakers but why would he do that?It is said on a player per player basis so kind of confusing.

    Anthony Davis trade, you have to add at a minimum Danny green and boogie cousins to the list of players the lakers get in trade. Because they don’t get those two players on the roster without AD recruiting. So it looks like lakers have the edge.
