If Chris Paul decides to ring-chase this off-season and signs a veterans minimum with the Lakers would they be favorited over the Nets

Lets say CP3 takes this finals loss in a rough way and decides he wants to focus solely on getting a ring, so he opts out of his contract with the Suns and signs a 1 year vet minimum deal with the Lakers. Would the Lakers be favorited over the Nets next season? This is also assuming the Lakers make moves with the rest of their supporting cast as well, but would this put them toe to toe or above the Nets?
