Does this sound like a guy wanting to come to the Lakers?

@ChrisBHaynes tells us now on @ESPNLosAngeles if these teams had a max slot LeBron would listen to them b/ c he respects them. Teams are the Warriors, Spurs, and less so the Heat (b/ c he's been there done that) . Wouldn't rule out Lakers, Cavs and Rockets. No Clippers.

So he would not rule Lakers out. Doesn’t sound promising
This is why I think we should hold on to the young guys.
Cousins is out and don’t know how he’ll be when he is back.
George is unlikely to leave a top 5 team in the West for a team not making the playoffs.
I also think they jumped the gun on trading Russell.
Are there any other “max” guys out there that would work? Jordan.

Chris Haynes is just trying to create a story. Neither Lebron James nor the Warriors mentioned anything. Do the Lakers need a Plan B if Plan A doesn't work? Yes. Which I think they have. If the Lakers don't get any allstars signed will the Russell deal be a bust? Yes. The way I look at Paul George is that he hasn't said anything either about committing long term with the Thunder. Magic Johnson will be aggressive during free agency. It will be different from the Kupchak/ Buss era.

02 Feb 2018 13:58:46
I agree that Lakers need a plan b but magic will hopefully sign one of pg13 Bron or boogie.

02 Feb 2018 15:57:03
One maybe. But that’s why I don’t want to trade Randle and Clarkson. They are good young pieces to go with Ingram, Ball and Kuzma.

02 Feb 2018 16:41:31
I like Randle and Clarkson but Randle is going free agent and probably won't resign and Clarkson is a good bench player but he isn't going to help them win a championship. Here's what Lakers should do

Trade for first round pick, sign boogie or trade for a good c, sign pg13 or Bron, and get a good bench player.

01 Feb 2018 15:27:07
With the bkn pick lakers could draft Mo Bamba as a backup to love. Bamba might end up being the best rim protector in the nba. Lakers need a good defender

The only problem is that the Cavaliers have stated they aren't going to trade the Brooklyn pick. I know you have been mentioning Kevin Love's name in this forum. The Lakers should wait til free agency and see who they can come up first.

01 Feb 2018 18:41:51
I get what you're saying. It would be hard to get the pick and love but cavaliers will be willing to take Lopez Randle Clarkson and brewer for them. The free agents would be either boogie or dj. Boogie will want too much 💰 and dj is just a big body who can't shoot. If lakers wait until free agency they might get nobody. They should get love now and hopefully the pick then make a run at pg13 in summer.

01 Feb 2018 19:35:50
For starters the Cavilers can't take back $47M in salary and send Love and his $22M in salary to the Lakers. So that wouldn't work the way you constructed it. The Cavilers did show an interest in Jordan Clarkson but again stated that they aren't sending the Brooklyn pick for him.

It would've been Shumpert + another player + the Brooklyn pick for Clarkson. Cavaliers rejected it. They would do a Clarkson and Brewer for Shumpert + Frye + 2018 Cavaliers first round pick deal. However the Lakers aren't doing that.

Boogie has an achilles injury so he isn't going to get that big contract this offseason. I think he resigns with New Orleans on 1 year deal then reenters free agency the next year. We don't know what his future will be like with that injury. See how things change quickly. We don't even know if he is even going to play next year. Yes DJ is a big body that can't shoot but he will be getting a big money contract as well and he would be a plan B option if others don't sign.

I would like to see the Lakers get PG13. He would be the priority choice. Wouldn't be surprise at 12:01 midnight when free agency begins he gets the call from the Lakers. I would probably hold off on Jordan and wait til 2019 free agency. Klay Thompson would be available.

01 Feb 2018 23:30:36
I didn't realize the money differential. Here's Lakers dream scenario: trade Randle Clarkson brewer for shumpert Frye and bkn pick. In free agency they make a run at pg13 / Bron and boogie.

01 Feb 2018 23:32:04
Boogie wouldn't want a one year deal and he's not re signing with pels most likely.

30 Jan 2018 11:31:02
i know we all want lebron but lakers are not going to get lebron, he wants rings and would rather not join a rebuilding team. let's all hope that all these rumors with pg13 loving la comes true. a trade i wouldn't mind right now is if we send clarkson, randle, and brewer to the cavs for kevin love. then we sign pg13 in the offseason as well as a few other talent. i like Lopez game and i think laker should be giving lopez more minutes than what he's getting now. so i wouldn't mind resigning him if the price is right since there aren't any good FA bigs anyways. cousins won't be returning for a while and DJ is going to want a very expensive contract. then sign tyreke evans to help the bench put up some pts. if no lopez then maybe go for noel.

ball, ennis,
pg13. hart
ingram, evans
love, kuzma
lopez or noel, nance

sign pg13 4yrs 120m
sign tyreke evans 2yrs 22m
resign lopez 3yrs 54m or noel 2yrs 24m

let me know what you guys think. not sure about he salary cap next year but i see teams this year with a salary of 137million.

Don't resign Lopez but this is awesome.

07 Feb 2018 23:53:25
I'm not sure that PG is coming but I wouldn't mind taking a chance on Noel if he isn't getting a lot of offers in F. A which he might not bc he hasn't been all that impressive.

That said the Lakers could use a mobile rim protector and rim runner, does seem to have attitude and work ethics concerns though.

wouldnt want Lopez back for more than a one year if other options aren't there. He can't keep up running with this team, poor 3pt shooting year, can't rebound or play D outside. Doesn't seem like a great fit especially when not shooting well.

23 Jan 2018 05:51:24
Laker 2018 Facts:

Yes, PG wants to be in a laker uniform BUT RIGHT NOW he wants to be in a team that can compete in the playoffs SO NO PG FOR LAKERS IN THIS SEASON OR NEXT SEASON

Lebron? Still a NO why?? he has love, thomas, but still not leading the east HEAT is just 2 loses away DAMN!

Trading randle or clarkson is a big mistake this season they have both showed good numbers and if you get rid of them with silly trades just to sign what is superstart like LBJ and PG just stop

Realistic Trade Assets
- Deng or just waive and pay him his game doesn't fit in the nba anymore
-Nance, because Randle and Kuzma are much better than him
-Zubac, he's a scrub if bryant can be better than him next season

Agree1 Disagree1

You say Lebron No. Well the Lakers will not make the playoffs without an all star go to guy. If there is a chance that Lebron James signs the Lakers will take it. The reason why the Cavaliers aren't good is cause they aren't the same team without Kyrie Irving. It's just not a championship team overall. You say they have Thomas. Thomas plays no defense.

I do agree with you on PG13 which is wait. Now I do agree partial on not trading Clarkson and Randle. Personally I doubt the Lakers get an offer of a 1st round pick and a young player/ expiring contract right now. However Randle is a restricted free agent and could leave for nothing this offseason so the Lakers still need to explore. I think they will all stay.

24 Jan 2018 05:03:22
Yes but if Randle leaves it’s because we got a big free agent. So I’m ok with getting nothing. I would be more worried if we traded Clarkson, and Randle and we miss out on the big names. That would set us back years.

18 Jan 2018 02:21:01
LA nation what's going to happen.
Sign D Cousins
Resign J Randle no max
Should sign Avery Bradley

Agree1 Disagree8

16 Jan 2018 04:26:51
If we trade for a player like Cousins can we resign him if we are over the limit?

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jan 2018 18:04:50
Yes Cousins can be resigned and the Lakers can go over the limit if traded for before the trade deadline.

15 Jan 2018 08:30:51
After the season the players I want not what think we are going to get chances are we won’t but hey let’s try it

1.Labron James win win he will bring more money on seats and more wins to la
2. Marc Garsol 2 reasons he’s a solid strong aggressive center and the Garsol family we had good luck with his brother pau is a smarter player than Marc but Marc is stronger in the paint
3. Lamarcus aldridge great all around player
4. Tony Parker still a solid player at his last year’s as a player but can do 2 things still play at a high level and he knows how to win something the lakers haven’t done in a long time
5.ill leave this pick up to you guys but this pick has to be a defensive player a monster creature someone like Denis Rodman.

Agree1 Disagree2

15 Jan 2018 08:21:35
I think we should put ball on the trading block for 2 reasons
1. See what we can get
2. Sure lovar up to show him your son is just a player like everyone else on the nba he can be traded for any reason and he could be the biggest reason we want to see basketball not a soap opera

Just because we put him on the block doesn’t mean we don’t have to trade him so before everyone freaks out on oh what are you saying let me clear that up another thing the kid has greatness he will be great but I think just putting him on the block is a win win situation.

Agree2 Disagree2

13 Jan 2018 04:03:27
Are there any good young centers that can shoot the 3 and plays defense? That the Lakers could get?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jan 2018 07:26:29
There really aren't many centers that shoot the 3 to begin with. Demarcus Cousins is the best 3 point shooting center. Marc Gasol would be another one potentially available. Then we have Brook Lopez already who shoots the 3. All 3 play good defense. KAT, Al Horford, Pau Gasol are the others I can think of that aren't available that can shoot the 3 and play defense.
