THEIR IS ONLY 1 BALL. This is what so good about the Warriors. Not everyone needs the ball to make an impact. Derozen, Durant and Irving are all SCORERS and need the ball to have an impact.

Agree3 Disagree1

01 May 2016 15:30:34
Lakers13 If Irving would change his game and adjust to start passing the ball more then what he does now this could work. Even though there is 1 ball if the Lakers trade Clarkson & Williams plus of course with Kobe retiring this could happen giving the right shot selections. Problem of course is the defensive side. As far as the Warriors being good about shot selection well yeah that's how you win. The Lakers now have there assistant coach so Walton could then work on how many shots each would take. I think Durant, DeRozan, and Irving would be willing to take less shots to win over somebody like Harden.

Agree1 Disagree3

If the Lakers miss out on Ben Simmons, but keep their pick:

top 3 pick: Brandon Ingram or Buddy Hield
32: Patrick McCaw

trade 1 w/ CHI:
-D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram or Buddy Hield, Lou Williams for Jimmy Butler

trade 2 w/ ATL:
-Jordan Clarkson (sign/ trade), Larry Nance Jr for Jeff Teague

*Jeff Teague + Jimmy Butler's contracts = 24M incoming, Russell + top pick + Nance + Williams = 16M outgoing. Let's say Lakers have about 48-50 million to spend after acquiring Teague and Butler's contracts

-Harrison Barnes (64M, 4Y)
-Hassan Whiteside (90M, 5Y)
-Ryan Anderson (20M, 2Y)
over cap signing
-Brandon Jennings (full vets minimum, same deal as Pau in Chicago)
re/ signsings:
-Brandon Bass
-Tarik Black
-Marcelo Huertas

I like Butler and his D. This lineup would be great.
My only concern is Russell making good decisions. I'd like a veteran point guard backup besides Huertas.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 16:17:58
I'm going to be realistic here as lakers are not the most desirable team for superstars.

Coach: Luke Walton

Draft: Ingram

Trade: Nick Young for cash or a future 2nd round pick

Sign: Barnes, Ezeli, Whiteside and Gerald Green

PG: Russell, Huertas
SG: Clarkson, Williams, Green
SF: Barnes, Ingram, MWP, Brown
PF: Randle, Bass, Nance Jr
C: Whiteside, Ezeli, Black

A lot of these players can play multiple positions so that can be changed around a bit if needed. This team can be a playoff team in a couple of years and maybe attract future free agents.

trade 1-3, clarkson, williams and nance to sac for boogie.
stretch young.
sign barnes.
sign durant.
sign mccallum.
sign bazemore or trade for ariza
sign black.


bazemore/ ariza

all under cap. lineup would be crazy competitive. with luke at the help and an offense focused on ball movement, this is the lakers future.

Believable6 Unbelievable9

30 Apr 2016 20:58:13
McCollum isn't a free agent. Lakers aren't getting both Barnes and Durant.

Agree5 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 23:17:00
mccallum is a free agent. he was released on the 1st by mem.

getting barnes and durant is simply math. gsw will have to re-sign curry next off season so committing to a max contract might not be in their best interests.

durant is the hard push. he wants talent and championships. the above starting 5 is better than what they have in okc.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 May 2016 04:34:01
I thought you meant McCollum from the Blazers. McCallum from the Grizzlies won't help. As far as GSW they will have $15M in cap space next year and when Curry is a free agent they will have $55M as of now and a little less after Barnes signing. So the Warriors best interest would be resigning Barnes which they will. That roster you made is not better than OKC roster now. They have Westbrook, Ibaka, Kanter, and have a quality bench.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 15:48:20
Draft Ingrim
Jordan Clarkson (s&t) plus Williams for 1st round pick.
Hit the free agency like a mad dog, secure Kd and others will come.
If hassan Whiteside doesn't agree deal (wants max) . Get pachulia.
Gasol said he wanta to win a title and would take a paycut. i'm sure he'd love to come back to LA.
All F. A gets 2 year contract. Except Conley and K Durant.
* numbers in parentheses represent salary.
Cap size adds up to 89 mil as it will be next year.
Good offensively and defensively.
Let me know what you think or would change.
*shared mins at pf and C (if not Whiteside)

Pg: M Conley (13)/ ish Smith (5)
SG: D Russel (5)/ N young (5)/ A Brown (1)
SF: K Durant (25)/ Ingrim (5)
Pf: P Gasol (7)/ Randle (4)/ Nance (1)
C : H Whiteside (13) or pachulia/ Biyimbo (5)

Correction to my own post. I forgot about huertes. I'd have him instead ish Smith. And use the other cap salary to lure Whiteside or Conley with more money

30 Apr 2016 21:00:37
I doubt Durant leaves OKC for this roster. He will want multiple allstars to play with.

Rondo isn't worth that deal. Especially for 4 years. I'd put Conley instead.

Gasol won't request that much. He said for a championship team he would take a pay cut.

Agree6 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 14:11:11

LAL get Andrew Wiggins and Adriean Payne

MIN get #2 pick, Julius Randle and Lou Williams

I know Wolves might say no since their team is already built. I just love LAL to have Wiggins then Kobe develop him even more.

MIN draft Ingram

Pg Rubio/ Jones
Sg LaVine/ Williams
Sf Ingram/ Muhammad
Pf Randle/ Bjelica
Ce Towns/ Dieng/ Pekovic

sign Hassan Whiteside

Pg Russell
Sg Clarkson
Sf Wiggins
Pf Nance

30 Apr 2016 15:58:25
So whose the superstar that's going to read us?

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Apr 2016 13:42:18
Here we go.

Coach: Luke Walton

(Harrison Barnes and Ezeli could be persuaded)

If we land draft #1 or #2, we go Simmons or Ingram. If #3, we trade it along with Lou Williams and Julius Randle with Demarcus Cousins since the Kings are willing to try him on Market. Trade Nick Young + 32nd Pick to Shabazz Muhammad of Minessota

Sign Barnes for max, Sign Ezeli, Sign Derozan for max for 2 years, resign Clarkson/ Huertas/ Black.

If we Land #1/ #2

PG: Russel, Huertas
SG: Derozan, Clarkson
SF: Barnes, (If Ingram), Muhammad, Brown
PF: Randle, (If Simmons), Nance Jr
C: Ezeli, Black

If we land #3

PG: Russel, Huertas
SG: Derozan, Clarkson
SF: Barnes, Muhammad, Brown
PF: Cousins, Nance Jr
C: Ezeli, Black, (Sign DeJuan Blair for 1 year)

If we lose the pick

PG: Russel, Williams, Huertas
SG: Derozan, Clarkson
SF: Barnes, Muhammad, Brown
PF: Randle, Nance Jr
C: Ezeli, Black.

Sign some vet.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

30 Apr 2016 15:21:27
Hibbert and Sacre are free agents so I doubt there would be a sign and trade with them involved. I would say Nick Young instead of Hibbert in the Cousins trade.

Agree7 Disagree1

30 Apr 2016 07:04:29
I would consider this a very possible and successful offseason for the Lakers

Draft Ingram (Please basketball gods)
Sign Batum (preferably) or Barnes to a max
Sign Whiteside (preferably) or Horford to a max

PG: Russell
SG: Batum or Barnes
SF: Ingram
PF: Randle
C: Whiteside or Horford
6th: Clarkson

Luke Walton is probably bringing the warriors system (floor spacing and ball movement) with him so this team can run it.

Believable9 Unbelievable2

30 Apr 2016 07:30:24
I'm with you. I personally prefer DeRozan at SG.

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 08:19:13
Agreed. With some capable bench players to go along with Clarkson and nance and a system in place like the Warriors system, this team could go alright. Would switch Ingram and Barnes/ batum's positions tho

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 16:00:04
I pressed believable. But there is no superstar and Whiteside will not waste time with such team.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Apr 2016 06:20:23
Lakers will have about $63M to spend. I think they go for 2 names this year and then Westbrook next year.

Sign DeRozan.
Sign Whiteside.
Draft Ingram.
Clarkson leaves.

PG = Russell
G = DeRozan
F = Ingram
PF = Randle
C = Whiteside

2017 - sign Westbrook.
PG = Westbrook
G = DeRozan
F = Ingram
PF = Randle

Best chance to top warriors.
If cavs and thunder fail to win finals, james and Durant goal is to win so they team up then wade join them. Best place is the Lakers. They can choose there coach or Walton. Trade Williams and 32 for a future second round pick. Stretch young. Then sign and trade clarkson plus pick one for pick two and Noel. Sign back up pg with Mle.

Huh? Miles Turner for Randle? Why would anyone do that.
Turner = 10.3 pts / 5.5 reb
Randle = 11.3 pts / 10.2 reb

Agree5 Disagree1

30 Apr 2016 17:19:37
I hope you are right, but I think Turner will be better than randle.

Randle can´t make a jump shot.

Turner is a much better defender and shoot from mid range.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Apr 2016 10:26:36
sign KD
sign Whiteside
trade pick and clarkson for jimmy butler
sign barnes and ezeli

let go or stretch young or I don't care as long as he is not there

the team I think will have a balance position from 1 to 5 spot and the front court is even stronger because of barnes, batum, randle, nance and whiteside that can help durant and butler. that's when russell can develop his potential since he is surrounded by good role players and 2 superstars.

russell/ huertas
butler/ williams
durant/ brown/ 32pick
barnes/ randle/ nance
whiteside/ ezeli/ black.

Believable3 Unbelievable11

29 Apr 2016 15:30:19
This would be a pretty good team, but there is no Power Forward in your starting lineup. I don' see Barnes as a PF. Also this seems to be over the cap.

Agree4 Disagree2

29 Apr 2016 17:50:57
Yeah that is wayyy above the cap space

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Apr 2016 07:50:59

Cavs gets: Anthony

Knicks gets: Russell, Lakers pick

Lakers gets: Love, 2nd Knicks

Salary cap don't need to match in offseason when all teams have cap space.

Cavs play small ball with Melo at the 4. In a separate deal they trade for CP3 and build a super team in Cleveland.

Knicks gets cap space this summer and can build around Russell, KP and the top 3 pick in this years draft.

Lakers gets Love as their first big piece this summer and hope to recruit big name free agents again.
Hope to sign Whiteside and Batum.

Any adjustments?

Melo, Love and Russell is the main pieces I would like to see in a deal.

Believable0 Unbelievable13

29 Apr 2016 10:04:58
Um this would be trash for the lakers. Not only because they get rid of two young peices but also because the 'star' player is in the same position they already have randle and nance in, so kinda pointless imo. And there are better players available for trade

Agree7 Disagree0

29 Apr 2016 10:25:24
good trade. however, I believe the same deal could be done to get demarcus cousins. Plus the knicks have no picks this year.

Dream Scenario.
Sign Durant.
Sign Wade.
Sign Lebron - if he thinks he has better chance at a ring in LA and play with friends. He can play point.
Trade 1-3 pick and Randle to Kings for Cousins.
Hire Walton.

PG Lebron - $25M
SG Durant - $30M
SF Wade - $20M
PF Nance - $1.5M
C Cousins $16M
Salary = $92.5M + Bench.
Salary cap - $89M next year.
However, it jumps to $108M the year after, just pay luxury tax for one year.

there is only one ball in this game, with this team we need to play at least with 3 or 4.
