What would you do if you were Mitch Kupchak for a day?

The Lakers' off-season is nearly complete, but it remains one of those things where it seems like forever before all the ts are crossed and i's are dotted. Will Shannon Brown return? Are there any free agents the Lakers can still pick up? Are there any legitimate summer league prospects that will make the team roster?

Those are all questions Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak has to take care of while the rest of us get enjoy the the summer going to the beach, hitting the gym, going to Disneyland, sleeping in and of course re-watching, over and over, the Lakers' NBA Finals. While Kupchak is busy making those decisions, there of course are fans at the L.A. Times Lakers blog proposing what he should be doing.

You guys never shy from suggesting trades, who to cut and what to do, so this should be an interesting exercise. Imagine you are Kupchak for a day and say what you would do. You can do this in a variety of formats. You can give a running diary of Kupchak's activities and the supposed events and conversations that take place through the day. You can suggest what off-season movements you would take if you were in his shoes. You can really do anything.

The best answers will be featured in a separate blog post besides the morning links post. I'm sure plenty of readers will have some ideas that will be good enough to feature Sunday.
