Three big questions still facing the Lakers after free agency overhaul

first_imgThere’s also the uncomfortable truth that when Cousins was injured in 2018, the Pelicans ran off a 21-13 finish to the season that allowed them to qualify for the playoffs that season. Before Cousins was hurt, the Pelicans were 27-21. Davis played arguably at his best when he played center (finishing third in MVP voting that season), which might well be his best position with the Lakers. There’s also the question of how far Cousins’ recovery will take him, given that Achilles tendon injuries are notorious for sapping a player’s athleticism. The Lakers might never get All-Star Cousins back – a fairly small risk considering his salary, but not much help come postseason.2. How do the Lakers match up defensively with elite guard tandems?There’s a squishy sense of the starting lineup at the moment, particularly in the wake of a Yahoo Sports report that James will be starting at point guard. While James has almost always been the primary ball-handler on his teams given his unique passing ability, the report doesn’t exactly clear up how the Lakers will handle that decision on defense, where there are immediate concerns.James has notably seen a decline in defense as any number of social media videos of him watching someone drive by can attest. He’s likely to expend so much on offense that the Lakers are better off “hiding” him on a low-scoring wing or forward who is less of a threat. The front office signed Danny Green, Avery Bradley and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope partly with the intention of using those players as backcourt stoppers, but if Green and James start, how do the Lakers defend teams with two high-scoring guards? In the West, there are a lot of them: the Warriors (D’Angelo Russell and Steph Curry); the Rockets (James Harden and Chris Paul); the Trail Blazers (Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum) and the Jazz (Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell) chief among them. All four of those tandems averaged at least 45 points per game last season, and several of them require defensive attention well beyond the 3-point line.That’s going to require some tough choices: Are the Lakers going to commit to being big, playing Cousins, Davis and Kyle Kuzma at the other three starting spots, leaving James or Kuzma to have to defend a really good scoring guard? Will Kuzma come off the bench, leaving Cousins and Davis to man the front and one of Bradley or Caldwell-Pope to start and take on point guard defensive duties? Will the Lakers play smaller with Davis at center, allowing Kuzma and an additional guard to start?The Lakers have a few months to figure out the answers to these questions, but the roles on the team, including starters and rotations, could be very much determined by match-ups in an increasingly guard-oriented league. The front-heavy composition of the roster could lead the Lakers to be exposed on defense around the perimeter. At the very least, the Lakers could face the additional complication of cross-matching while running back on defense with James on the floor, adding a degree of difficulty to Vogel’s objectives on defense.A relevant tangent to this one: If the Lakers are determined to start James as a point guard, there are at least three other players who can play point who will be vying for perhaps just one rotation role between Rajon Rondo, Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso. How does that work out?3. Is there enough depth on the wing?There’s a very noticeable gap between two kinds of players on the Lakers roster: the bigs and the guards, and even the players on the roster who qualify as wings lean into one of the other categories. James is a small forward, but likely to play more point guard. Danny Green could split time between small forward and shooting guard. Kyle Kuzma played power forward for much of last season. Jared Dudley is on the tail end of his career and can’t be a guarantee for big minutes.Related Articles Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed That’s an issue when considering that particularly the neighboring Clippers have two of the best wings in the league, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. One of the reasons the Lakers are lacking true wings was that they were hoping for Leonard themselves while many solid role players came off the board (Bojan Bogdanovic, Trevor Ariza and Thaddeus Young were among the players who cashed in early at a widely desired position).There are some remaining options who might be available to the Lakers in the future. Notably, fans have cried out for Andre Iguodala, who was traded to Memphis by the Warriors and is a former Rob Pelinka client. The 6-foot-6 do-it-all wing fills a very obvious roster gap for the Lakers, who could use the defensive sensibilities of a player many regard as one of the most intelligent of the league. But the Lakers also lack the assets for a trade with the Grizzlies to get Iguodala, and it’s unlikely that Memphis buys out Iguodala’s contract, preferring a trade (possibly to the Clippers?) to receive assets in exchange for the 35-year-old three-time champion.Carmelo Anthony, on the other hand, has been on the market for most of the last year and is a close friend of James. But there’s also a reason he’s been out of the NBA for so long: He struggled, particularly in the playoffs, in his last full season in Oklahoma City, and his Houston Rockets tenure was so unsuccessful, it ended after just 10 games. Another former James running mate, Kyle Korver, was waived in Phoenix and plays this position, but he’s also 38 years old and defensively limited. It’s late in the free agency game at this point, and the Lakers have a very new look.How far will it get them?Headlined by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, there’s a higher confidence that the new roster will break through the franchise’s six-year playoff drought. According to an ESPN report, NBA executives polled generally believe that the Lakers will be a winning team next season, with potential to win more than 50 games.A quick once-over of the roster helps explain it: The Lakers will be propelled by two superstars who are widely considered well-matched pick-and-roll partners. James has never played with as adept a finisher as Davis, and Davis has never had a playmaker as versatile as James. Beyond them, the Lakers have added shooters such as Danny Green, Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook and Troy Daniels who can provide sorely needed spacing to a team that lacked it last season. What was a young team last season has now mostly turned into an experienced one, with several players who have at least made deep playoff runs before. Between the signing of DeMarcus Cousins and the retention of Kyle Kuzma, the Lakers shouldn’t have a problem scoring inside the paint.

New head coach Frank Vogel will have a lot of weapons to work with, but the roster balance and roles might take a great deal of thought to fine-tune into a championship contender.1. How much can Davis play with DeMarcus Cousins?It didn’t cost much for the Lakers to take a gamble on a former four-time All-Star who used to be Davis’ teammate. It also seems that Davis went out of his way to welcome Cousins into Los Angeles and ask him to come win a title with him – it’s very possible that the Lakers might not have Cousins if Davis didn’t waive his $4 million trade kicker.On paper, there’s good reason to reunite this duo if they can reach the heights they had during the 2017-18 season as a pair of bigs starting together against the grain of the NBA. In New Orleans, they had a plus-5.3 rating when they shared the court and were both voted All-Star starters. They both averaged more than 25 points and 11 rebounds per game and were regarded as perhaps the toughest frontcourt in the league.But there’s a reason this trend has been fading: Pairing two big men in NBA starting lineups is increasingly fraught. After losing to the Rockets for a second straight postseason, the Jazz punted on a Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors pairing in favor of going smaller. The Miami Heat traded Hassan Whiteside, who had proved to be an ill fit with their system alongside Kelly Olynyk. While the Indiana Pacers seem set on pairing Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis next season, in the playoffs this year, the duo had a minus-27.6 rating while sharing the court against Boston.
