What does Luol Deng buyout mean for Lakers?

“They’re (Lakers) going to have $38M in cap space. He gave back $7.5M. He wanted to go out and play basketball” – Marks

“The main thing for him: To show the world that he’s still healthy, capable of contributing to a winning situation” – Elhassan

“He (Luol Deng) fits a need as a versatile player, can play stretch four, can guard multiple positions. (Joakim) Noah: There’s not a whole lot of need for a big there ” – Elhassan

“What you want to do if you’re a coach: You want to get all your allies in a locker room and now you got 5 of them (Rose, Butler, Gibson, Noah and Deng)” – Marks

According to Bobby Marks, if Kawhi Leonard leaves next summer, the Raptors are projected to have $50M in cap space

“Yes because they did two things: They upgraded their roster and then you add Danny Green. They are a better team today” – Elhassan

“I would give them an “A” for the Kawhi trade but I would give them a “B” overall because I still have concerns at head coach with Nick Nurse” – Marks

Marks: R.J. Barrett
“I thought he could have played in the league right there (City of Palms Classic in Florida). I wanted to grab him and put him on a team”
