Lakers get Will Bynum
Celtics get future 2nd
Laker should ship Kobe to Knicks in exchange of amare, whose contract is expiring next year. as ridiculous as this trade sounds, this will def do good to Lakers since it will have more cap to rebuild next year.
From the preseason games we know that Kobe isn't the old Kobe, and I don't think he can make difference for lakers this year.
Kobe's contract will help us rebuild quicker believe it or not. In fact he needs to probably sign for an additional year for approximately 20 to 25 mil based on my calculations.
People forget teams have to spend 95+ percent of the salary cap otherwise they are penalized. Kobe's contract gives the Lakers ability not to commit lengthy contracts to other players until we start the rebuilding process.
I'd trade Jordan Hill for picks, let Nash contract expire and let the disable players exceptions expire. Maybe pickup another big.
Be patient Lakers fans. Don't believe the naysayers the Lakers plan B is on track, maybe a little ahead of schedule. That's why Jeanie Buss could definitively say Jim Buss has 3 years.

Monroe 4y 60m
Gay 3y 40m
I'd rather wait on Anthony Davis. Randle and Davis in the back court. We don't need to get players just because they are available. Lakers fans need to be patient.
Hopefully Kawhi and Klay thompson won't sign extension with their respective clubs, thus making them an unrestricted players next season.
Lakers should, by hook and by crook, obtain those two players who can be the club's next franchise in the near future.

sign Iman Shumpert for $10 mil
sign Gerald Green with mid-level exception $5 mil
resign Jeremy Lin for $5 mil
resign Ed Davis for $6 mil
draft one of the Harrison twins from Kentucky
Clarkson & Harrison/Green/Young/Kelly/Davis
in the 2016 summer the Lakers will have over $34 million to throw at Kevin Durant or Anthony Davis as a result of Kobe and Jordan Hill's contracts coming off the books. Big free agents will also be more inclined to come to LA since there will already be a good nucleus to join consisting of a very solid bench and only two of the five starting spots being unoccupied.

With Nash out for the year, the Lakers should try to trade him to a team looking for cap or roster space. I think Minnesota could fit that bill. Nash for Barea and Brewer.
Lakers get a decent backup PG and a versatile wing, who can either start or come off the bench.
Minnesota clears up some roster spots as well as some playing time for their young players. Plus, even though Nash won't play, he can mentor Rubio from the bench.
Win win for both.
The Lakers are the best organization in the league. Trading his contract is probably not the right thing to do at this point. We should let it expire and let Nash retire with dignity.

Small move, not sure if it works timing wise
Lakers apply for disabled player exception for S Nash, get extra $4.85 million cap space
Celtics send W Bynum & 2 2nd round picks to Lakers
Lakers get extra pg for depth
Celtics get under luxury tax line
I think Philly might trade Michael-Carter-Williams. So I think the Lakers should wait.

DEN get: Steve Nash (exp) & 2nd Round Pick
they don't need mcgee with mozgov & hickson. cut ties and move on with a shorter contract.
LAL get: Javale McGee
team up with old pal Swaggy P, give lakers a C for the future
20 Oct 2014 12:54:04
Only if things go wrong in Memphis:
- trade s. nash and 2015 1st round pick (from HOU) for c. brewer and j. j. barea
- trade j. hill, w. ellington and j. randle for m. gasol and j. leuer
Lin - barea - price
Bryant - johnson - clarkson
Brewer - young - henry
Boozer - kelly - leuer
Gasol - davis - sacre
I'd rather wait and go after Anthony Davis, if he decides to re-sign with New Orleans, then we can stockpile draft picks.
19 Oct 2014 09:55:33
TORONTO get: Nash+Sacre (both canadian)
LAKERS get: Fields+Hayes + 1st pick (lottery-protected)
17 Oct 2014 15:57:36
Lakers Knicks trade
Lakers get Amare, Shumpert and Outlaw
Knicks get Kobe and Jordan Hill
This trade only happens if the Lakers have a losing record by the midway point in the season and Kobe demands a trade
I chose the Knicks because of the relationship between Kobe and Jackson
No, no, no. Kobe's a Laker for life. Let's just wait and rebuild slowly.

I can't see this happening as Sixers fans & Brett Brown have grown a liking to Noel but here goes.
Sixers get Randle
Lakers get Noel
Sixers do it to get a scoring option which is something they lack and Randle would be a better fit he's more a Pf then Noel whose more a C which cuts the problem of who to play Pf and C.
Lakers have no defence so taking Noel gives them much needed rim protection.
17 Oct 2014 07:42:25
Jeremy lin, Michael Carter Williams
Kobe Bryant, Jordan Clarkson
Gerald Green, Nick young
Julius randle, Ryan Kelly
Trade Xavier & ed davis for gerald green
Trade Nash, boozer (throw aways) & first round pick for Michael carter
Look, rather we want to admit it or not,
Wesley Johnson sucks on defense & offense we need to get better at small forward.
I knew this but no one wanted to beileve me.
& I don't want to give up ed davis because he's a force on defense but it's better than letting jordan hill 12 points 2 blocks & 14 rebounds go.
& boozer just sucks, you built just like a rock & wanna shoot elbow jumbers?! Than say you wanna train Julius randle? Hell no get away from are future. He does not need to shoot 18 foot jumpers all the time. Let that guy band down low with Jordan & get 10 rebounds a game like back in college that's why we drafted him
Another thing is, we not only need to get younger, but actually young future stars & be patient. Let them devolved.
That means Ryan Kelly, Julius, Michael, Clarkson, Jeremy ect need too see big minutes. & are vets like Jordan, Kobe, Nick, ect needs to school these players fast & let their younger body care us to the playoffs than that's when the vets minutes increase & show the younger guns how they when a championship.

Kobe contract up in next 2y plus the cap space going so really lakers win in this signing if happen and kobe don't re tire give him 2y 30m
14 Oct 2014 01:11:25
SIXERS: Jeremy Evans, ROCKETS 1st pick from LAKERS, CLIPPERS 1st pick from CELTICS, 2nd pick from LAKERS
JAZZ: Ryan Kelly
CELTICS: Jordan Hill
LAKERS: Jason Richardson expiring, Tyler Zeller, Joel Embiid
Not bad, but if since the Lakers can't get Kobe his 6th ring. We are better off stinking for the next 3 to 4 years.

This is the same line up I proposed last week. Nobody mentioned Rudy Gay in any posts until I did last week.
Whoever the 2 people who disagree need to go back and see this guy old post lol. He really did say this already and mentioned re sign Kobe.

Get rid of Nash, Sacre, Kelly, and Henry. Young, Hill, and Davis can go if needed.
Go for Rondo, Rubio, Perkins, Monroe, or Hibbert during the season or in free agency.
Make a move for Thabo, Smith, or Fareid.
Carlos Boozer can't be traded so were stuck with him for the season.
Julius Randle will most likely be an all star and contender for rookie of the year so you hold on to him while he devolops.
Try to get Kobe to agree to a final 2 year contract when his current expires. (Not a max)
This is the first time I heard Rudy Gay mentioned. These are all smart moves but not all are possible.
