Next year Lakers trade Deng and 19 first for something like denver Just did. Or at deadline Trade Deng and 19 first and second for George hill. King James went to the Lakers for a reason something big happening next year and it starts with Deng getting traded for nothing or part a deal for a star

I was thinking, how the Lakers can compete if they don't have a good starting center..

Agree0 Disagree4

Lakers are looking at a McGee, Wagner, Zubac rotation at center. There really aren't many if any good starting centers available that can give you 15 and 10 a night. One was available Dwight Howard but the Lakers fans hate him. Lakers past on Lopez who I thought they would bring back. Two are available now Greg Monroe and Alex Lin but those 2 are bench players. I think Lebron James is going to take most of the shots, then you have Ingram, Kuzma, KCP taking shots so I think who the Lakers have now works perfect for defensive side.

Just wondering. Has anyone seen anything about Leonard’s injury? Meaning is he basketball ready? The more I think about it I think it’s a bad idea to trade for him. He hasn’t played in a long time. And hearing about him hiding from the spurs reps when he was in recovery makes he wonder if he did come how much of a bad influence he would be?

Agree0 Disagree5

There is no current update on Leonard's injury. There was a discussion on an ESPN show about this today. Teams trading for him will want to see medical records and examine him. So right now nobody knows if Leonard is basketball ready. This is just an opinion of mine. I think he is just avoiding the Spurs all together so he can't play and just enter free agency next year without injury. He is being influenced by his uncle. We don't know if he want to play for the Spurs anymore or if its his uncle. If he refuses to play the Spurs will suspend him for going awol. Yes you are right that's bad for chemistry for other teams. Now the USA team coached by Greg Popovich is happening in August. Leonard is due to arrive and be at practice in August so we will see what happens.

What I would love to see if possible
1. Keep what we got this year
2. Next year work on some more super stars
Get john Wall greek freak and Klay Thompson
3. Bench players get Okafor Ariza and Riddick
4. Get rid of ball and hart and some how get rid of deng maybe trade them all for 1st round picks if possible.

The only guy you mentioned that's available in 2019 is Klay.

Salary cap exists you can't sign all of those players.

You want to trade Deng for a 1st Rounder? Good Luck.

This has been on my mind for awhile. News came that Magic is not working on Lorenzo's shot. At UCLA he hit .67% Free Throws / .55% FG / .42% 3pt. Last year he hit .45% FT's / .36 FG% / .30% 3 pt. The most glaring stat is free throws. He was just 67% at his best at UCLA. The shot needs to be change 15 feet or less. IF he had played enough games, he would have had the LOWEST % in the NBA. That's a red flag to say the least. You should have a starting point guard who can make charity strip points at a 70% clip or higher. The shot needs work or he probably needs to go. Period.

Why not just keep what we got this year and get one or the other from golden state either Klay Thompson or Kevin Derant correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t they both free agents next year?

We already have a playoff team.

Agree8 Disagree0

That is actually the plan which is why the Lakers are signing players to 1 year contracts. The question though is will the Lakers get a chance to even talk to either of them and will they jump from the Warriors to the Lakers? That's hard to say especially after both are wanting to be on the team for the long term.

07 Jul 2018 04:21:30
If Leonard traded to Philly boston still be better and never get better then Boston especially if embiid get hurt then there done.

So Lakers add him as a free agent will be best option for him to compete.. they can trade Deng who will be expiring contact next year along with a young player and a couple draft picks for a star or borderline star

Agree7 Disagree0

Leonard's Camp needs to let everybody / all the league know again that he absolutely wants to go to the Lakers when he becomes a free agent. Just to clarify the situation and shut the door on any major assets going to the Spurs, knowing he is just a rental. At that point, we may want to trade for him. Ingram and Deng and maybe a 1st or 2 2nd's. Just a thought.

Will bossh and wade join James

Agree9 Disagree2

Bringing back Dwight Howard? He wants to be with Labron. Good? Bad? What do you guys think I’m kinda mixed emotions about it myself.

Agree6 Disagree0

Howard has agreed to join the Wizards. Lakers should offer $4M for 1 year to Brook Lopez and see if he takes it. Lakers need another center and somebody who can shoot 3s so he would work.

03 Jul 2018 16:44:35
Paul George put LA in a bad spot. I think they should wait on Leonard and only trade to be made is Ball out of LA hopefully for Lillard.

Agree9 Disagree1

03 Jul 2018 17:59:45
Not really. Lakers still got Lebron James and are signing players to 1 year deals in order to get a max free agent next year. I think that 2019 free agent class has better players than Paul George so I say let's take our chances for a second star next year. Like you said wait for Leonard would be the best option. Leonard is better than George and I think we can both agree on that one, lol. Lillard would take up too much salary cap and salaries would have to match. Doubt they do a Ball/ Deng for Lillard deal.

04 Jul 2018 05:00:17
Dont think lillard is owned that much besides Lebron needs another scorer now which I'd
S why they looking into it now. As for the trade make it deng, ingram, ball, if you sure you getting Leonard next year.

04 Jul 2018 05:43:36
If the Blazers would be willing to take Ball, Deng and Hart for him I say do it. Of course Leonard would be out but the Lakers would still have Ingram and Kuzma. Lillard is owed 3 years $90M.
