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!

I think USA purposely makes dumb trade deals just to get a negative reaction.

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.

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.

Monroe, MCW (Vaughn if needed)

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.

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.

Call this,
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!

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)

2016 Summer

LAL sign both Harrison Barnes and Hassan Whiteside to max contracts.

In 2017 Summer sign Russell Westbrook for the max

-2017 Roster-
Westbrook/ Clarkson
Russell/ Bradley/ Lou
Barnes/ Crowder
Randle/ Nance
Whiteside/ Noel.

Believable5 Unbelievable16

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.

Agree5 Disagree2

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.

Agree3 Disagree2

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"

Agree0 Disagree1

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.

Agree2 Disagree1

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?

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

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

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.

Agree3 Disagree0

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

OKC: B Griffin and JJ Redick.

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.

Believable10 Unbelievable4

John Wall would be a better option for the Lakers. We think big or nothing at all.

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

PG: Westbrook
SG: Fournier
SF: Batum
PF: Simmons
C: Ezeli

If they get #2, draft Ingram
Sign Batum 4 yrs $80M
Sign Horford 4 yrs $88M
Sign Ezeli 4 yrs $56M

PG: Westbrook

SF: Ingram
PF: Horford
C: Ezeli.

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.

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
Williams/ FA
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.

Believable10 Unbelievable9

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.

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.
