Love Durant Melo Top 5 Pick

Love Durant Melo Top 5 Pick

Could this be possible. Lets say we someone luck into a top 5 pick in a loaded draft class. Say Carmelo Anthony decides to take less to win. He takes a 15 million deal with the lakers promising under the table we sign Kevin Love to pair with him in 2015. We are able to add a PG in Marcus Smart or Dante Exum. In 2015 we sign Kevin Love. Hell if we are able to nab Melo for 15 million and Kobe at 24 we could bring in a big man. In the offseason maybe we could offer Jhill or Gasol a one year deal with increased salary to buy time for Kevin Love to hit the market. Ryan Kelly, Marshall are proving to be decent role players.

2014 Lakers
C Gasol or Hill / Sacre
PF Carmelo/ Ryan Kelly
SF WesJ/X Henry (hope we can bring them back cheap)
SG Kobe /Nicky Young
PG Smart / Marshall

Farmar Meeks Kaman prolly will take money. In 2015 we could take out Gasol and bring in a Love and pair with J Hill. in 2016 Kevin Durant is a free agent the same year Kobe is. We could swap out Kobe with Durant or Kobe can stay if he is playing at a high level

K Love
Swaggy P or Kobe
Marcus Smart

it can all be so easy
Howard Gasol
Clark Hill
Kobe Meeks
Nash Duhon
Playoff rotation! Bring Casspi or Ariza back home for a Title Run Mitch!!!

This only makes sense if we can also get LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Sign John Wall as backup, too.

I'll answer seriously. Sure, it's possible. Is there any reasonable chance at all that it happens? I don't think so.

I love throwing around the realistic best case scenarios, so here's my new fave for the week:

Waive Steve Nash
Get a Top 3 pick and select Joel Embiid
Pick up Kendall Marshall's team option
Re-sign Jordan Farmar, Jodie Meeks, Xavier Henry, Kent Bazemore, Wesley Johnson, Ryan Kelly for ~$11M/season combined
Sign Kyle Lowry for $8-9M/season
Sign Jason Smith and Darrell Arthur to one-year deals

Kyle Lowry...Jordan Farmar...Kendall Marshall
Xavier Henry...Jodie Meeks...Kent Bazemore
Kobe Bryant...Wesley Johnson
Jason Smith...Ryan Kelly
Joel Embiid...Darrell Arthur...Robert Sacre

At the end of next season, you have Lowry, Farmar, Henry, Meeks, Kobe, Johnson, Kelly, Embiid and Sacre under contract along with ~$10M in cap room. From that point, you just look to unload enough room to add Kevin Love.
