Phoenix also asked if Lakers would remove protection on the pick they owe them (currently top 5) protected. No traction on either discussion— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) February 18, 2015
We're talking about Goran Dragic heading into unrestricted free agency while losing a shot at a top-five player this summer. There's no world the Lakers should ever even entertain that thought, but here's a list of things Mitch could have countered with.
- Throw in a time machine.
- Eric Bledsoe too, while you're at it.
- Training staff? Yep, clean out your lockers everyone, you're moving to Los Angeles.
- Also, we're taking our pick back, that'll cover our counter demands.
- The gorilla too. We'll take the gorilla.
