05 Feb 2016 17:48:38
Doeant cause for a long conversation because it's just bad in general
05 Feb 2016 19:00:59
The whole deal doesn't make sense at all but you're right about 1 thing, this post does cause for long conversation. Long conversation to tell you how horrible it is. Especially the part where you have the Lakers drafting the #1 and #2 lottery picks this year. What?! Makes no sense!
05 Feb 2016 21:13:42
I think USA purposely makes dumb trade deals just to get a negative reaction.
06 Feb 2016 00:49:50
nance can not play SF at all. Simmons can play SF so they would have to switch places. Randle is not going anywhere. He is a walking double double.
05 Feb 2016 16:47:33
i feel like if we traded clarkson russell and the rest of the team might develop better. i'm not saying clarkson isn't good but maybe we could be better by trading him
maybe its addition by subtraction.
05 Feb 2016 14:22:48
And one more unrealistic, MIL-LAL
Monroe, MCW (Vaughn if needed)
And with drafting Poetl would be also nice.
05 Feb 2016 07:58:12
Lakers trade: Lou Williams
Heat trade: Whiteside and Deng
This is a win-win for both teams-
Miami gets a solid scorer to come off the bench and help in their playoff push
Lakers not only get Whiteside for the remainder of the season to evaluate him and see if he really is worth the max contract and how well he and Russell play together (which I think is a perfect match as a roll man), but it even opens up more playing time for Russell and clarkson! And if we end up losing Whiteside, we open up some more cap space by trading Lou.
05 Feb 2016 06:42:54
Let kelly sacre Hibbert bass huertas MWP all walk
Resign black and Clarkson
Fire Byron Scott, hire Luke Walton or mark Jackson
Draft Brandon Ingram at #2
Draft a center at #32 (aj hammons? )
In free agency sign nic batum 2 yrs with player option after second year
Sign whiteside or ezeli
PG clarkson/ Williams
SG Russell/ young
SF batum/ Ingram/ brown
PF Randle/ nance
C ezeli or whiteside/ DP/ black.
04 Feb 2016 22:48:38
Bucks Get: Roy Hibbert, Jamal Crawford, Jordan Clarkson
Lakers Get: Greg Monroe
Clippers Get: Michael Cater-Williams.
04 Feb 2016 23:25:27
With the Lakers losing so many games and having an estimated cap space of over $70 million next year they will have a great chance to get the #1 or #2 pick in this years NBA Draft plus they will have ample cash to lure all star and superstar players.
The Lakers Make Over Steps:
#1. Draft Ben Simmons #1 pick or Brandon Ingram #2 pick of the Draft
#2. Sign Hassan Whiteside*
#3. Sign Demar Derozan*
#4. Convince Kevin Durant to sign with the recent acquisitions on board
#5. Trade Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram to the Sixers to get Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington and a future 2nd Round Draft Pick
#6. Make the Playoffs
#7. Compete for a Championship
This line up would be scary!
D'angelo Russell/ Lou Williams/ Marcelo Huertas
Demar Derozan/ Jordan Clarkson
Kevin Durant/ Robert Covington/ Anthony Brown
Julius Randle/ Larry Nance Jr. / Brandon Bass
Hassan Whiteside/ Nerlens Noel/ Tarik Black
* Steps #2 or #3 will work either way!
06 Feb 2016 02:39:42
That would be awesome
04 Feb 2016 22:55:37
Fire Byron Scott for Scott Brooks. Fire Mitch Kupchak for James Worthy then greatness awaits.
04 Feb 2016 22:43:53
From the last post: Start Joakim Noah at Power Forward. Move Julius Randle to SF
PG: Chalmers, Russell, Isaiah Cousins
SG: Jaylen Brown, Lou Williams, Jabari Brown
SF: Harrison Barnes, Randle, Anthony Brown
PF: Joakim Noah, Larry Nance Jr, James Webb
C: Hassan Whiteside, Tarik Black, Robert Upshaw
04 Feb 2016 22:26:49
Lakers Offseason: Draft Jaylen Brown and James Webb. Lose Jordan Clarkson Kobe Bryant Roy Hibbert Brandon Bass Ryan Kelly MWP Robert Sacre Marcelo Huertas. Get Hassan Whiteside ( 20 million) Harrison Barnes (20 million) Mario Chalmers (5 million) Joakim Noah (13 million) Jabari Brown (1 million). Get Isaiah Cousins undrafted. Cut Nick Young
04 Feb 2016 21:28:42
Lakers get Kaman, Harkless, Henderson and second draft pick
Trail Blazers get Young and Hibbert.
04 Feb 2016 20:57:16
LAL get - Eric Bledsoe, Markieff Morris, Alex Len
Pho Get- Russel, Hibbert, Bass.
04 Feb 2016 19:58:32
LAC get Brandon Bass and Nick Young
LAL get Lance Stephenson (exp)
LAC get a SF and a back hustling PF while Lakers get an expiring deal.
04 Feb 2016 02:49:16
Couple lakers trades
Sac gets Lou Williams and a second round pick
Lakers get McLemore and Caron Butler (buyout)
Sixers get Clarkson
Lakers get Covington and their first round pick guaranteed.
04 Feb 2016 03:42:18
In the event LA were to receive the 1st pick.
Three-way trade involving LAL, Boston, and Philly
-LAL get: Nerlens Noel, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder
-BOS get: 1st pick (Simmons), LAL 32nd pick, Anthony Brown
-PHI get: 3rd pick (Kris Dunn)
LAL sign both Harrison Barnes and Hassan Whiteside to max contracts.
In 2017 Summer sign Russell Westbrook for the max
Russell/ Bradley/ Lou
04 Feb 2016 05:34:12
Your trade makes no sense. If the Sixers get the 1st pick why would they trade down to 3rd and trade Noel with that 1st pick? So Noel & lst pick for 3rd pick? lol. If the Lakers get the 1st pick why would they trade it for Noel, and 2 long term deals in Bradley & Crowder when they can just select Simmons? Simmons would have more value anyway.
04 Feb 2016 13:10:49
I'm sorry for the confusion; please allow me to clarify.
I thought it was self-evident that in this scenario the Sixers would be drafting second AND receiving Boston's third pick (via Brooklyn) in order to draft Brandon Ingram second and Kris Dunn third to finally shore up their issues at the guard and forward spots while still having a bevy of front court guys in Okafor, Embiid, and Saric.
I also didn't make it clear that the idea here with this particular method of team construction would be to lure Westbrook to LA assuming that KD in fact left for Golden State.
Perhaps I overvalue Bradley and Crowder and even Nerlens Noel for that matter but I have looked at the serious bench issues the Lakers have and the even more serious defensive issues the Lakers have. With the Simmons for Noel/Bradley/Crowder deal I was figuring to kill three birds with one stone by showing Westbrook that there is a stout starting core and very solid bench to join in LA where defending scutterbugs like Steph and dynamic wings like KD/Kawhi is pivotal while also having the front court advantage over most teams in having both Whiteside and Noel.
04 Feb 2016 15:59:35
And it would help if you were capable of reading the very first sentence "in the event that Lakers receive first pick"
04 Feb 2016 17:30:35
I covered that. Fact is that isn't a smart deal to make. Lakers can get players for defense during free agency. I would not trade the first overall pick for similar guys they can get without giving up draft picks. Also if the Lakers were to trade the 1st overall pick they would want a top level talent in return. That would be my expectation. To give up Ben Simmons I better see top level return.
04 Feb 2016 18:31:51
This is mainly where we disagree. From who I see available in free agency the next two years, there aren't any high quality rotational players.
Is Nerlens Noel not a top level talent? I think he would look a lot better where his role isn't so up in the air. After more thought in regards to your replies, Simmons is worth a lot more than those three but how much is he worth then as trade bait?
04 Feb 2016 20:47:16
Some names that have been brought up are Nick Batum, Luol Deng, Tayshaun Prince, Gerald Green. Players who can come off the bench and give good defensive minutes for next season. Depending on what players we don't get they could also start. To me Nerlens Noel is not top level talent. He is a work in progress. We already have enough of those types of players. Now you have the Lakers signing Barnes & Whiteside. There wouldn't be any room for Noel with Randle, Nance Jr., and other free agents. I am unsure if Noel would do well in a bench role. Now you asked what is a guy like Ben Simmons worth in my eyes. He is only worth what some team is willing to give up. That deal may not even be out there next offseason. People brought up Demarcus Cousins, Paul George, and even Blake Griffin. Those players would be great to have if and that's only if we see guys like DeRozan and/or Durant sign with the Lakers so that there is a team that can win. Taking Kobe out and putting one of those 3 in I doubt will win. We will need to sign DeRozan or Durant to add to that talent. Kind of like what the Cavaliers did with Lebron James and they added Kevin Love. Way I look at it is if Cavaliers can do it and Celtics in 2008 can do it why can't the Lakers next season do it. Make a losing team an instant winner.

04 Feb 2016 09:53:12
22 players in a trade? Really?
04 Feb 2016 01:10:17
Lakers offseason: we have about 65 million in cap space
-if we want any chance to sign durant, we need to convince him we are willing to trade all our assets and get him help for a Championship
*All these trades/ Signs happen once he signs with us*
1. Sign Durant to a max contract (25 mil) - 40 mil left
2. I say we trade Russell Randle and Ingram (15 mil) for Cousins (16 mil) - 39 mil left
3. Sign derozan to a max (20 mil) - 29 left
4. Sign Rondo or Conley to a 4 year 64 mil deal (16 mil/ year) - 13 mil left
5. Convince Pau to sign for 3 year 21 mil (7 mil/ year) - 6 mil left
6. Resign clarkson to same deal as Rondo but thanks to the Gilbert arenas rule he can only make 5 million his first and second year
04 Feb 2016 09:55:59
I believe u did your maths wrong. You only took off 10 mil when signing Derozan. Oh and he isn't worth 20 mil anyways
03 Feb 2016 19:15:19
Bass/ Lou- Oubre Jr/ Humphries/ Blair
Young/ Kelly- Mayo/ Plumlee
Plumlee/ Clarkson- Brandon Jennings
D'Russ/ Jennings/ Huertas
Derozan/ Mayo/ Jabari B
Oubre Jr/ Ingram/ Anthony B
Randle/ Nance Jr/ Humphries
Whiteside/ Noah/ Black.
03 Feb 2016 20:51:38
04 Feb 2016 01:39:29
Isn't Noah a free agent? There is no point of trading Hibbert for Noah.
Lakers will likely only be trading for expiring contracts with an added young prospect and/ or pick so that cancels out half your trades.
04 Feb 2016 03:54:12
Noah will be a unrestricted FA and we are trying to trade Hibbert to a contender and the Bulls are a contender so they can have Hibbert come off the bench with Bobby Portis. And since we went going anywhere the rest of this season, we don't need to rush Noah's health. So he will ready next season
04 Feb 2016 09:57:27
But what if Noah doesn't resign? We aren't gaining anything.
03 Feb 2016 17:33:55
Chi gets: Lou Will, Roy Hibbert
LAL gets: Nikola Mirotic, Joakim Noah, Kirk Hinrich
Butler/ Lou Will/ Moore
Kobe/ Mirotic/ Brown
03 Feb 2016 17:10:32
I would hate to see this as a Lakers fan but let's see if you guys think this is possible this offseason.
LAC: K Durant (S&T 2 yrs $54M, PO 2nd yr)
OKC: B Griffin and JJ Redick.
03 Feb 2016 05:45:55
Lakers trade Lou Williams
Celtics trade Turner, Rozier, Mavericks 2016 first round pick
I don't know what is wrong with Lakers HC Byron Scott but he should be playing Rusell and Clarkson as many minutes together as possible as the backcourt of the future. Moving Williams opens up more playing time for those two players. And adding Rozier (nice scoring combo guard for the bench) and the Mavericks first round pick add more youth to the rebuilding project.
Celtics have a million picks and a million young players glued to the bench not playing. While Rozier has upside long time Williams will give the Celtics the quick hit scoring punch they lack coming off the bench now with Thomas in the starting lineup. It's a good value buy for the Celtics as Williams is in year 1 of a 3yr/ $21M deal.
03 Feb 2016 15:08:59
John Wall would be a better option for the Lakers. We think big or nothing at all.
04 Feb 2016 00:21:08
Williams isn't worth that much tho. That pick could be top 22
02 Feb 2016 20:05:03
If Durant leaves and OKC decides to blow things up, after this season:
LAL: R Westbrook (exp)
OKC: J Holiday, B Bass, J Clarkson (S&T), and '16 1st via NOP (currently proj #6), '16 2nd and '17 2nd via Lakers
NOP: D Russell, J Randle
LAL draft Simmons at #1
Sign Batum 4 yrs $80M
Sign Fournier 4 yrs $64M
Sign Ezeli 4 yrs $56M
Leaves about $6M in cap space
If they get #2, draft Ingram
Sign Batum 4 yrs $80M
Sign Horford 4 yrs $88M
Sign Ezeli 4 yrs $56M
04 Feb 2016 00:23:16
I wouldn't trade randle, russell and clarkson for someone who will be 28 when the season starts no matter how good that player is tbh
02 Feb 2016 15:28:29
LAL get Rodney Stuckey and Solomon Hill
IND get Brandon Bass and Nick Young.
02 Feb 2016 06:24:42
Lou and Bass- Whiteside/ McRoberts/ Deng
Young and Clarckson- Macklemore/ Belineli
Anthony Brown and Hibbert- Mayo/ Vasquez
Kelly and Black- Byiambo
Sign Whiteside (if couldn't trade)
Sign Jabari Brown
Russell/ Vasquez/ Huertas
Macklemore/ Belineli/ Jabari Brown
KD/ Ingram/ Deng
Nance Jr/ Randle/ Byiambo
Whiteside/ McRoberts/ Upshaw.
02 Feb 2016 15:06:50
Don't need McRoberts in that trade. Expiring contracts only. Can get more for Clarkson in the second trade. Your third trade I would be expecting a pick back for Hibbert. Monroe is on the Bucks so I don't see them trading for Hibbert.
02 Feb 2016 05:32:37
Lakers/ clippers/ Knicks
Lakers trade Russell and Randle to Knicks
Knicks send Carmelo Anthony to the Clippers
Clippers send Blake Griffin to the lakers
Lakers draft Ingram, sign Whiteside and hopefully Durant sees enough and decides to sign as well
Durant or Ingram
Knicks get rid of Carmelo which everyone knows they want to and build for the future with Porzingis Russell and Randle
Whoever the 3 will be/ FA
Clippers have been playing well without Griffin and they get a superstar to fill that SF position that has hurt them so much in the past
Whoever the 4 is/ FA
This deal works for all teams involved.
Lakers get their superstar and quick rebuild IF durant and Whiteside sign with us (they're willing to take the risk)
Knicks don't have any draft picks so Russell and Randle will help them build for the future and don't have to worry about pleasing Carmelo
Clippers are in win now mode and won't beat warriors with or without Griffin so Carmelo will be a huge upgrade.
02 Feb 2016 15:15:19
For that deal to work at the trading deadline Lakers would need to add $10M in players salaries & Clippers would have to add $3M in players salaries which all be going to the Knicks. This would be a deal during the offseason however I would be reluctant to give up Russell & Randle for Griffin.
02 Feb 2016 03:26:35
Lakers trade Lou Will bass 2017 second
Kings trade Rudy.
02 Feb 2016 02:44:19
Lakers have made russel available via trade
Sixers trade: Noel and return lakers pick ( this way next year lakers will have their pick)
Lakers trade: russle
Russel value is pretty rough right now but I think the lakers better get some thing for him as soon as possible. He might be better on another team that will give him more time to play with less expectation. Meanwhile lakers get to keep their pick This year and definately next year and get a great 21 year old defensive big to compliment Randel. Noel gets to be a center which he's much more used to playing.
02 Feb 2016 05:31:34
This person on the trade rumors page calls Russell a bust and how he can't shoot dribble or play defense yet he makes a trade for him every week!
02 Feb 2016 15:18:17
He is a Sixer fan who is trying to make us think he is bust so his team can get Russell. He is probably upset that the Lakers took Russell or Okafor.
02 Feb 2016 19:08:05
I know like most sixer fans
02 Feb 2016 02:13:13
Lakers/ Sixers/ Heat
01 Feb 2016 22:41:24
MCW, Mayo, Vasquez, 2016 1st
Russel and Hibbert.
01 Feb 2016 21:57:50
So much stock in Randle I'm not impressed package him with Hibbert and Swaggy p for Cousins got to have something to draw Durant.
Trade clarkson to Philly for pick or embieb to back cousins sign al horford pf.
