2018 Offseason Plan (Lakers)

Step One
Magic Receive-Luol Deng, 2018 Cavs first round unprotected pick, 2020 Lakers first round unprotected pick

Lakers Receive-Wesley Iwundu

Step two
Lakers extend Julius Randle and sign Isaiah Thomas+Avery Bradley in order to compete

Step 3
Have assets to move at the 2019 deadline and still save a load of money to spend on 2019 free agents. Klay will be available and want a max deal which the Warriors won't be able to afford. Jimmy Butler will also be there but that's unrealistic. Lebron James will likely only sign a 1 year tenure to the Rockets or excursive his player option to return to the Cavs. All in all, the Lakers will have money to sign a superstar weather they want to in 2018 or 2019. Personally I think that the free agent class will be stronger in 2019 compared to the 2018 class.

You made a statement Jimmy Butler is unrealistic. Well if the Lakers have cap space for him it is definitely realistic. Wiggins just signed a max deal and KAT will be signing a max deal. Timberwolves can't afford to pay Wiggins, KAT and Butler $90M of the $100M cap space. Which will be the same problem the Warriors will have with Thompson and Green in a couple years.
