Lakers shifting to 2019 FA class?

By: Troy Story.

With Cousins out for a year, George staying in OKC, and the uncertainty of Lebron's decision(plus wear and tear) the Lakers may push back to the class of 2019. Potential FA's for 2019: Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler. The key paragraph:

"Pushing back a year on big-game hunting in free agency could serve two purposes: It could alleviate the urgency to unload contracts at Thursday's trade deadline and around the June NBA draft that could require the Lakers to attach future draft assets as incentives, and it could allow the Lakers' talented young core -- including Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart -- to further develop and become more attractive for veteran stars to join."
