What happens to Lakers offer if Lakers have a good playoffs run?

I get Pelicans want to wait for Boston's offer, but with reports going around that Davis is telling everybody that he's joining Lakers in 2020 no matter what, who says Lakers offer will be the same during the summer?

We all know that LA will look so much better when Lebron returns, and if Lakers get playoffs Lebron then they could easily go the WCF or semis. At that point some of those guys value could go up.

New Orleans playing a really risky game by waiting, worst case scenario is that nobody puts up a good trade offer this summer for a 1 year rental, LA have a good playoffs run and they give them a worse offer.

You're kidding yourself if you think LA won't trade the whole team for Davis. Fact is Orleans could have everyone right now if they wanted to. They haven't made a deal yet because the Hornets know they can do better and are pissed off by the colluding. If LA recovers well enough to be swept by the Warriors (their best possible outcome) they will just be talking about how they need another superstar (really 2) and resume begging Demps to take away half their roster.

No, it really isn't. Ingram has shown to be wildly inconsistent while Kuzma is a good scorer, but about it.

Then throw in everything else Boston can offer that the Lakers can't/

Wasn't Paul George signing with the Lakers no matter what? Didn't Kawhi say that as well, and yet, Toronto took a chance and gave up a decent amount?

The ball is in the Pelicans court here, they don't have to fall for the mob moves by LeBron and Davis here, unless they get what they want. I agree they shouldn't lose Davis for nothing, and they also shouldn't take an inferior package to spurn the Lakers either, but look at it this way. If Davis wants to punt this and next year to join LeBron in the Summer of '20, Lakers front office is going to scramble to reserve cap space that year and most likely waste a year of LeBron's final years.

Did George or Kawhi hire Rich Paul as agent? Did Kawhi and George basically announce their intentions in a way that gives the Lakers an advantage and their biggest competitor Boston a disadvantage?

So the speculation by the media wasn't clear that George would sign in LA no matter what?

Kawhi had a bit more push to it, and still does, as it seems the Clips would be his preferred choice.
