Lakers targeting Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2021 Free Agency
 

 
The Lakers have stated that they want Jason Kidd on their coaching staff to serve as a veteran a*sistant to Frank Vogel and a mentor to Lonzo Ball, but the real reason may be more ambitious, according to Steve Popper of Newsday.

A source familiar with the Lakers told Popper at this week’s draft combine that the Lakers are hoping to make a pitch for MVP finalist Giannis Antetokounmpo when he becomes a free agent in 2021. They hope Kidd will provide the personal connection needed to attract the Bucks star.

Kidd was Antetokounmpo’s coach for three and a half years in Milwaukee before being fired in the middle of the 2017/18 season. He helped Antetokounmpo develop from a part-time player as a rookie into one of the NBA’s top talents.

L.A. currently doesn’t have any salary committed past 2021 other than $5MM owed for the final year of Luol Deng‘s stretched contract. LeBron James has a $41MM player option for the 2021/22 season, while Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart will all be eligible for extensions by then.

Although nobody can tell what might happen in two years, the Lakers seem to have a tough sell to convince Antetokounmpo to leave a Bucks team that appears headed for a long run as a title contender. Beyond that, he will likely be eligible for a supermax contract that would pay him 35% of the salary cap, but that’s an offer that only the Bucks can make.

Winning this year’s MVP honors would automatically qualify him for a super-max, as would being named Defensive Player of the Year or making an All-NBA team in 2021 or two of the next three seasons.

no they ain’t

They are not saving a max cap spot for 2 more years waiting on a star

They probably won’t even save it for one year for waiting on AD for free agency in 2020

They will use it this year in free agency or by trade

“Jason Kidd was thinking of trades while he was taking a massive dump today. Sources tell me it was after a large burrito from Chipotle so he was really contemplating life and the future of the team.”

Lol how the casual have fallen

Went from " we got LeBron. It’s the new Lakers dynasty. The Lakers Are the team to beat this year."



They literally have the best player in the planet, in their team and they're targeting someone 3 years away.

Lakers fans deserve every bit of bad luck they get.

Giannis already shot down lelarry's dumbass for Space Jam, and shot his a*s down for the workouts over the summer. Giannis damn sure don't want to play with Le"I always need more help" James, or Le"It's always your fault not mine" james. Only a fool would want to play with Lecancer.

Best player is Kawhi, Giannis, or KD. Lebum ain't that, and hasn't been for years now.

He also doesnít have a no trade clause. Iím not saying it will work out that somebody take him off their hands but Iím thinking thatís their goal. Get him to not opt in or trade him to somebody desperate to make a run that year....maybe Houston.
