Lakers/ Kings

Lakers trade: Randle
Kings trade: WCS and Labassierre

*Assuming Lakers don't sign Whiteside or another Center.

Believable5 Unbelievable10

28 Jun 2016 08:11:20
This trade doesn't help at all. Randle is developing into a good player. WCS still has a lot of work to do and I doubt Labassierre will be anything close to what you expect him to be.

Agree6 Disagree4

28 Jun 2016 12:14:30
Agree with citydude, WCS needs to work on his game quite a bit, and Labisierre is a few years away from being anywhere near capable of playing consistently at a high level. His fouls and rebound numbers were near the exact same against college players. Would be worse against grown men

Agree6 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 17:25:42
Lakers/ Kings

Lakers trade: Lou Williams and future 2nd
Kings trade: Skal Labasierre.

Nick young and a second rounder

Agree9 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 16:24:31
Plan A
Trade Nick Young for 2017 2
Trade Lou Williams for 2017 1

Lakers get back into the first round next year to continue growth and also obtain a second to continue the youth movement while clearing more space.

Current Pieces

Julious Randle
Deangello Russel
Larry Nance Jr.
Anthony Brown
Ivania Zubac
Brandon Ingram
Cap 93 Million
Space 71 Million

Solid youth. Clear needs at the Center, SG and depth. As well as a proven scorer and reliable 3&D players.

Free agents we should retain from last year --
Tarrik Black 2 year 5 million 2.5avg
Jordan Clarkson 4 year 50 million 12.5avg

Gives us a starting 2 or a backup PG. Whatever Luke decides. Clarkson also young and has developed well the last two years. Tarrik Black provides raw potentional and brings a tall shot blocking center who can rebound.

Cap space 56 Million

Free agents we should not retain

Roy Hibbert
Ryan Kelly
Robert Sacre
Marcelo Huertas
Metta World Peace
Brandon Bass

These are not fits for the new look Lakers. Maybe you could do a sign and trade with a team who wants Hibbert and sends us a trade exception and a pick. Other then that these guys should not be on the Lakers next year.

Free Agency NEEDS {C, 3&D, Backup Guards&Forwards}

Sign Hassan Whitesite 4 year 88 Million 22m avg

Hassan Gives us a star. Maybe not the best scorer but a solid player who is one of the best definsively and can alter a gam with his rebounding and shot blocking. Fills a need at C.

Sign Chandler Parson 4 year 72 Million 18avg

Gives us a solid forward who knocks down 3's and is a good compliment to this team. Still young and developing.

Space 17 million aprox. Still need backup guards and more 3 point shooters.
PG- Russel-
SG- Clarkson-
SF- Ingram-Brown
PF- Parsons-Randle-Nance Jr
C- Whiteside-Zubac-Black

Sign Brandon Jennings 2 yr 12 million second year player option

Gives a backup PG and can help us. Coming off an injury should get him a discount.

Sign Kevin Martin 1 year 5 million

A veteran SG who can score and is taller who could guard shorter SF or taller SG. Can shoot the ball well and bring help to this team in leadership.

Sign Seth Curry 1 year 5 million

Athletic Gurard who can play the 1 and 2. Would help with shooting.

No cap space left but still have exceptions. Wont use them but will sign vetren mins to fill roster out.

Parsons-Randle-Nance Jr

Ronnie Price - Vetrans Min

Fills out a PG need and is a vetran who can shoot 3's. Fills out 3rd spot.

Chase Budinger - Vetrens Min

Fills out a SF need. Could also play stretch 4 and shoots the ball well.

PG- Russel-Jennings-Price
SG- Clarkson-Martin-Curry
SF- Ingram-Budinger-Brown
PF- Parsons-Randle-Nance Jr
C- Whiteside-Zubac-Black

This team can shoot and they are young. Needs to do lots of work on the defensive end but if they can develop their the team could grow. Ingram, Russle, Clarkson and Randle would all need another year of developing so this team would look more to winning two years from now and they can gain chemistry with Parsons and Whiteside.

Next years Free Agency
Cap would go up around 22 million next year aprox.
Around 12 Million Coming off next year
34 Million Cap space could be closer to 36.
Could target Griffen/ Westbrook.

Also the next few years we should develop are scouting deparment and our DLeague team. Focus on getting good coaches and a new top notch trainer. Invest in facilities and upgrades to keep players developing and keeping healthy. Sign MWP to dleague staff or as player development coach.

My first post, spelling may be off. Numbers I believe are correct. I respect any replies.

Believable7 Unbelievable10

27 Jun 2016 17:25:08
Everything is pretty much ok but i'm not sold on signing parsons. If you plan on signing a player who will be taking away the starting role from randle, I think it would be better if they sign luol deng or marvin williams, both only 3 yrs older than parsons and are two-way players unlike parsons.

And to be honest, I want randle to keep starting. Just my opinion.

Agree7 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 20:16:09
How would Huertas not fit in the new look?

Agree6 Disagree3

28 Jun 2016 01:23:33
Are you serious chandler parsons at pf can't guard his position at sf

Agree3 Disagree3

28 Jun 2016 12:17:14
My main issue is why spend all of our cap space on a team that would probably get bounced in the first round. Could be much wiser and save some money for next offseason

Agree4 Disagree1

27 Jun 2016 12:11:34

1) can't get noel for just Clarkson
2) can't get cousins for just russel and williams
3) batum won't leave hornets
4) turner won't leave celtics

P.S. You forgot Noel in the lineup, is he backup center or what

Agree6 Disagree9

28 Jun 2016 03:57:13
bazemore isn't that good. he had 1 descent season and i'm not betting thatk he's going to be any better next season. I rather have clarkson over bazemore anyday. plus you basically splited all the young core for older players. that lineup wouldn't last 2 years then needs to be rebuild all over again.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 08:09:12
Sixers get Clarkson

Lakers get Noel

Both fill their needs obviously lakers have interest in a defensive Center to cover Ingram and Randle and Sixers need a pg so everyone wins.

Believable6 Unbelievable9

27 Jun 2016 09:56:19
There is news, clarkson + young + sacre for okafor. imo Noel has better trade value than okafor, so if they want noel, clarkson alone won't be enough

Agree6 Disagree6

27 Jun 2016 15:18:55
Sixers are interested and can sign Clarkson to a restricted contract without trade. I think the Lakers will just sign Clarkson without having to match.

As I suspected no Durant nor DurazanLA on play is Whiteside and H Barnes with the core they have. Maybe add AL Horford.
Sacramento wants Russell trade him and Randle for Cousins then sign Conley, Horford, Barnes, Clarkson with Cousins.

This is pretty stupid to be honest with you

Agree11 Disagree1

26 Jun 2016 06:52:10
Now that we have Ingram.
Sign Whiteside to max
bring Noah as back up center or Speights.
Sign Bazemore to 6six man.
Try and still Livingston from WGS
Resign Clarkson and Huertas.
Trade nick young. Sign cheap Bench warmer to complete roster.

PG- Russell, Livingston, Huertas
SG- Clarkson, Lou will, Chris Johnson
SF- Ingram, Bazemore, A. Brown
PF- Randle, Nance, Kelly
C- Whiteside, Noah/ Speights, Zubac

Develop this team and win as many games as we can and make the team attractive for 2017 offseason. we should have cap left after building this roster to add to next years. we may be contenders in 2 years. If we add a Superstar next years offseason.

I doubt any team can steal livingston from gsw. He's too valuable for them. He is still under contract nxt season for 5.7M and i'm sure once he's a free agent he'll just quickly re-sign with them.

26 Jun 2016 18:40:14
Noah won't come over just to sign as a free Agent

Agree3 Disagree1

26 Jun 2016 05:44:29
So Lakers and Kings in talk for Russell. Only player I would want is Cousins. So this is what I would like to see.

Lakers get Cousins and Gay

Kings get Russell, Brown, Randle
Kings only do this if they are ready to do a total rebuild and do a salary dump. After all they did trade down in the lottery to get more young players.

Lakers Kings
Clarkson Russell
Williams McLemore
Ingram Casspi
Gay Randle
Cousins WCS.

Believable12 Unbelievable13

26 Jun 2016 19:12:33
I am hearing a Russell for Cousins swap. Lakers could take on the difference of Cousins salary.

Agree9 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 22:44:36
I woul like that. Then I say go after Conley and Kevin Martin and Curry and Spieghts or Ezeli

Cousins/ Speights or Ezeli

Not a bad team.

26 Jun 2016 05:16:01
Sign Hassan and Parsons.

PG: Russell/ Huertas

Day 1 of free agency
Horford 4 year 70 mill or
Whiteside Max deal 4 year 80 mill
Now we have a good starting 5
Day 2 of free agency need to find a combo Sgthat could play sf if needed. derozan would work great if we can get him great He plays good d and great mid range game.
This team in my opinion is #5 in the west along with a good deep team 2 years from now top 3 in the west!
Russell clarkson huertus
Derozan Williams
Ingram brown young
Randle nance
Whiteside black Zubac.

Agree4 Disagree9

26 Jun 2016 01:14:01
Trade Roy Hibbert - Lou Williams - Robert Sacre - Brandon bass - nick young and deangelo Russell all these guys Mitch got for us all bad moves if he doesn't do right this season give him the swift kick in the ass and tell him adios mother @$?!er and who ever tells me look for another team to root for that's the stupidest thing I ever heard I'm giving my advice how to fix the team not bad mouth it I've always been a laker fan die hard since I was a kid but when they suck hey they suck if a player comes to the lakers either draft or trade if they suck then they suck like Jeremy Lin he sucks evening he's a laker a bull or a hornet ext. he still sucks shaq when he was on any team he was great because shaq was a great player and we was blessed to have him as a laker. So if a player sucks as a player he will suck as a laker as well

Agree7 Disagree7

26 Jun 2016 02:17:57
It is reported that DeRozan isn't meeting with any teams except the raptors so it's unlikely he goes to the lakers or anywhere else.

Agree4 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 06:16:22
Paulfatjoes- your hate on Mitch is silly, he's one of the top GM's in the league and we wouldn't be able to find anyone better anyways. A couple of bad contracts doesn't make him a bad GM. Oh and your knowledge on who we can actually trade is pretty bad. Sacre, Hibbert, Bass are all off contract. As for the other 3, Young can go but isn't worth anything, Lou is alright off the bench if he plays for the team and buss has come out and put him in the fire players they want to keep from last year and Russell is our future so I can't see any of them going.

Agree7 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 15:11:39

Sign and trade Clarkson and brown for buddy hield

we get a perfect shooting guard for Luke Walton system one that doesn't need to handle the ball.

I'm not saying buddy is worth both players combined.

But we get his low salary for many years and can get other players in.

Clarkson will cost at least 12 mil.

Idk, what you think.

Believable15 Unbelievable10

25 Jun 2016 13:21:39
Aren't we going to have to pay hield in a few years anyways? Whether we do it to a player now or in 4 years doesn't really matter. Besides I'd like to see how Clarkson plays in 'Luke's system'.

Lakers-Sixers trade

Lakers get okafor
Sixers get russel.

25 Jun 2016 18:01:31
I'd love for it to happen but I highly doubt KD is going to sign with the lakers and getting Kevin love I'm not a fan of I do like the idea you said a couple days ago about getting back ariza he's a hustler and great defender good shooter too for a descent price now we got Ingram and this new 7 foot center correct me if I'm wrong from Serbia he's got the height and a tough guy look I think he'll be a great rim protector and post up center on offense like I said before give him to shaq and Kareem to train him and he just might be pretty good I still want to see young and Russell out of La though but they have to be traded separately because they can't be on the same team and I pray this is mitch's final year as GM bring back Phil

Agree4 Disagree4

25 Jun 2016 18:23:34
Pauljoes- I think we are perfectly fine with Mitch at the moment. He got Walton as coach & did well in the draft. let's see what he can do in free agency. I am not expecting him to hit a home run with free agents like get Lebron or KD but get players that can help the team win.

Agree12 Disagree2

Philly and LA Lakers
Noel for Deangelo Russell

I think Noel is a better fit next to Julius Randle because of his defense and athleticism.

Believable5 Unbelievable15

24 Jun 2016 23:40:29
Makes no sense. Lakers drafted Ingram to play next to Randle and without Russell they would be lacking a point guard. I wish the Sixers would just trade Noel and Okafor already to somebody else.

Agree12 Disagree3

25 Jun 2016 08:46:42
But Russell will be a better player than Noel. And you can find shot blockers every free agency

Sixers, Lakers, Suns, Grizzles had good drafts.

Sixers got Simmons (best player in class) and 2 wings who can shoot

Lakers got the 2nd best player and a first round talent in Zubas

Suns got Bender and Chriss thanks to the Kings

Grizzles took advantage of Baldwin and Davis falling.

Maker was my favorite player in the draft but 10 is too high.

Kings were high when drafting Papa Johns.
