Lakers will start at point guard by trading the expiring contracts of Lin/Nash for Rajon Rondo (as long as he agrees for extension) Both the Celtics and Lakers will help each other with this trade. Offseason priority should then shift to the center and forward position. I quite honestly hope we can keep boozer at the 4 at a cheap price. Go after unrestricted free agents thaddeus young and Greg monroe. Keep Ronnie price, nick young, Julius randle, sacre, Kelly on the bench. Along with Clarkson. See if we can sign local veteran and defender Tayshaun prince and bring him home. We will probably Lose hill and wesley Johnson To Get This Done As well. Be here is my projected 2015-2016 line up:

Pg. Rajon rondo 10. 5ppg 10. 7 asts 2. 3 stls.
Sg. Kobe Bryant 25. 7 ppg 5. 3rebs 4. 3 asts. 46% fg
Sf. Thaddeus young 15. 4ppg 4. 5 rebs 46% fg
Pf. Boozer 12. 5ppg 7. 4 rebs 48% fg
C. Greg monroe 17. 3ppg 10. 2 rebs 1. 8blks 50. 3% fg

Bench:
Pg. Ronnie price 5. 5 ppg 3. 2 ast control the game
Sg/sf swaggy ppg 13. 8 ppg 38% 3pt instant offense

Just trade kobe away from Lakers.

http://probasketballtalk. nbcsports.com/2014/11/21/kobe-bryant-says-he-took-large-enough-discount-for-lakers-to-contend/

Does he know what it means by discount? Kobe should look at 'discount' taken by Dirk. Lakers should just trade kobe away regardless of the contributions he has for the past 19 seasons, because the goodwill costs too much for one who doesn't even know what discount means.

Owners should eliminate the salary cap. Take a discount so that billionaires can make more money is stupid.

Wolves Trade:
Young
Martin
Brewer
Budinger

Lakers need talent around Kobe and Kobe cannot do it himself.
Wolves get 2 extra picks for next year and another top pick of 2014. Once he is back to full health with a core of Bennett/Wiggins/Deng/Rubio. This will also keep the wolves from contending for a few more years and not have to give Phx their first round pick.

Lakers get Stoudemire, Tim hardway, and larkin

Knicks get Kobe, and Boozer.

By doing this trade, Lakers will not improve its winning rate, thus bottoming the western conference and obtaining either first or second pick in the coming year. Then lakers can select jahlil okafor, a promising centre in the future.

With this trade the Lakers get bench production and a possible trade piece for an expiring contract.
For the Knicks, you get an expiring contract and a possible mentor to Shane Larkin. You also give Tim Hardaway and Iman Shumpert more opportunities in an unimportant season

Lakers - Pistons Trade

Lakers get Josh Smith and Jennings, to help Kobe.

Jennings - Kobe - Smith - Bozzer - Hill.


Detroit get Nash (out indefinitely and expiring), Lin (expiring) and Randle (out indefinitely).

Lin - KCP - Butler - Monroe - Drummond.

Randle is LA future they will not trade him for a short term process

Jennings and kobe is great
but Randle isn't going anywhere

Pjrw

(7)
(1)

I would do part of this trade. Jennings for Lin I'd do in a heart beat but I'd do either Randle or Hill for Greg Monroe. This would give the Lakers more offense and defense. No one could double Kobe because Monroe is a beast in the paint plus Jennings is a shooter who would thrive all the open shots he'd get. In additional Jennings can penetrate putting pressure on the opponents defense. The Piston would take Hill because he has more shooting range than Monroe. This would give Drummond more room in the paint.

Pistons-Lakers-Warriors-Grizzlies

Pistons trade: Monroe, Singler
Pistons get: Hill, Stokes, 2015 second rounder from Memphis, 2016 second rounder from Lakers and draft rights to Sekularac

Lakers trade: Hill, Price, Ellington and 2016 second rounder
Lakers get: Monroe, Singler

Warriors trade: Draft rights to Sekularac
Warriors get: Price

Grizzlies trade: Stokes, 2015 second rounder from Memphis
Grizzlies get: Ellington



Why would they do?

Pistons: Monroe will leave the team. That's quite clear. So trading him is a good option to get something instead. They get Hill who is a good player and will not mind backing up Smith and Drummond. Also his team option is something quite good because Pistons may try to sign a big name at next free agency. Stokes adds depth to frontcourt. Two second rounders may help to bolster squad at future seasons.

Lakers: Lakers lacks a star player who will help Bryant to lift the team to the play-offs. Monroe can provide this. Singler will supply much needed depth in SF. Forcing Monroe to resign next summer and trying to attract another star player will be the plan. Also another roster spot is maintained to get both Majok and Miller

Grizzlies: Depth in wing can be maintained by adding Ellington. Not much is given.

Warriors: They need depth in 1. They give anything but a spot to Lakers. Price is a good back-up.

Jordan Hill: He will accept this trade as LA will probably won't use his option to keep his contract.

Greg Monroe: Money is not in his mind for this season. So more probability of a winning team is a preference.



Depth Charts for Pistons and Lakers:

Jennings/Augustin/Dinwiddie
Meeks/Pope/Martin
Butler/Datome/Mitchell
Smith/Jerebko/Stokes
Drummond/Hill/Anthony

Lin/Clarkson/Nash(+)
Bryant/Young/Henry
Singler/Johnson/Miller
Boozer/Davis/Kelly/Randle (+)
Monroe/Sacre/Majok

Stop thinking that LA will do all to find a competitive team to Kobe. it will jeopardize their chances to rebuild. Next summer they will add Marc Gasol and check Love status. The trade as much as possible to get a perimeter threat ( Gay, and a bunch of role players to support the team) Kobe will probably not make his last year, that is the rebuilding price tag

Kobe is the worst player so far, jacking up so many shots and only converting a fifth of them.
Best solution is to trade him away, or else just pray that he gets injured so that he won't be playing for Lakers for the next two seasons.

I think they will need both Rondo Marc Gasol and LOve and to do so they will have to cut Kobe

This is not a championship team. We'd have to commit to long term deals for Rondo and Monroe. We can find better talent.

It's easy to be a fan of any team when they are winning. But it's hard to have patience and remain a fan when they are losing.

Lakers are unintentionally tanking, or in other words, they just suck. They can fix their team now or in the summer. If they were to do it now:

trade#1
Lakers-Timberwolves
Lakers Receive:
-Ronny Turiaf
-Chase Budinger

Wolves Receive:
-Jeremy Lin

(note): The Wolves are rumored to want to part with Budinger due to their crowdedness at the SF position (Wiggins, Brewer, Bennett, Shabazz are all capable of playing SF) and they have 2 more than capable centers (Pek, Dieng). Chase and Turiaf are basically "extras" to the Wolves young/talented cast. Jeremy Lin is a way better backup than Mo Williams and he can definitely fulfill the position if Rubio gets injured.

trade #2
Lakers-Pelicans
Lakers Receive:
-Ryan Anderson
-Jimmer Fredette

Pelicans
-Jordan Hill
-(if people think the Lakers aren't giving enough, add 1st round pick via Rockets if you want, I think this is fair because the Pelicans are rumored to be considering shopping around Anderson, Hill is a great replacement. High energy "garbage man" who can knock down a mid range and rebound like crazy. You can start or bench him and he still gives 110%)

Roster after trades (these trades can only happen after December)
*waive Ellington, perfect when Young comes back

PG: Jordan Clarkson/Ronni Price/Jimmer Fredette
SG: Kobe Bryant/Nick Young/Xavier Henry
SF: Chase Budinger/Wesley Johnson (or) Henry
PF: Ryan Anderson/Boozer/Ryan Kelly
C: Ed Davis/Ronny Turiaf/Robert Sacre

injured players out for season: Nash, Randle

This roster stands at 14 active, Lakers are allowed to have a 16 man roster if granted by NBA with a certain amount of players inactive which would be Nash, Randle.

*Clarkson should get the start, help improve backcourt defense, not scared to drive to the rim, decent ball handling skills, good size at 6'5 to make it harder for other PGs, and ball will be in Kobes hand most of the time anyways. i'm pretty sure starting him (rather than keeping Lin) is no different from Lin, if anything he's better
*Budinger, Anderson add consistent 3 point shooting and scoring to take load off Kobe. Budinger > Johnson
*Davis as a starter adds defense when Kobe gets beat off the dribble, which he will
*Nick Young can lead bench in scoring or bring in Fredette instead of Price for even more scoring

Best thing is that Lakers and other teams involved all get to keep cap flexibility for next summer

Seriously don't expect LA to have a championship team with KObe anymore. They will take 2 years, draf assets to trade, get big contract out and rebuild. This is what they will sell to their target. next year you play with Kobe and then we build on you: Love, Rondo, Marc Gasol, and a perimeter threat like Gay, Evans,

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.

(3)
(9)

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.
