Honestly, just not giving him to the Lakers to improve their roster is more of a benefit than getting anything they would offer in return. Let CP3 walk if that's really how he feels. Lakers can't sign him outright.
Eh this is meaningless to me. CP3 had 10 days off after the Denver series and another week after the Clippers. Most of the finals games have 2 days between too. There's no reason he shouldn't be able to play heavy minutes same with Ayton.
