What about BI ,JR and 27th 28th for the unicorn?

Agree0 Disagree5

23 Jun 2017 00:23:28
Well based on what the Knicks asked from the Celtics that isn't enough.

What are your thoughts on Lonzo Ball potentially being drafted by the Lakers? Do you think his game will translate to the NBA? Do you think he will be an All-Star, Superstar, Role player, or Bust? Would you trade the #2 pick for a different point guard? Would you select a different point guard/ player in the NBA DRAFT?

I'm so happy about the trade for delo and mozkoff for brook lopez now all we need is PG13 to come here I'm feeling labron will follow great job magic Jonson so far see once you fix your front office to someone the NBA players can respect you get better players to come in this is the start of something big in La.

Am I the only one who doesn't want a 33 year old LeBron James on the Lakers roster? The Lakers would offer him a max contract when they could use that max contract on a different player. I think it would be a bad idea to give LeBron a max contract when he has so many miles on his body. In the 2018 off-season the Lakers should go after younger players like Demarcus Cousins or Russell Westbrook.

21 Jun 2017 14:23:39
Lakeshow87 so if Lebron James the best player in the league is willing to come to the Lakers as a free agent you would pass on him? Who care if he wants the max he is worth the max. The mileage isn't stopping him from doing nothing. Lebron James would make the Lakers a championship contender.

22 Jun 2017 08:39:53
I M TEAM KOBE, i like Lebron and i m not sure if i want to give Him more Ring . and at LA!

I think we can make big Bulter, PG13, Cousins .

We have enough assets for make trade for Jimmy and Cousins we can sign him.

22 Jun 2017 13:39:49
Yes, I would pass on LeBron James as a free agent. He has been to 8 NBA Finals, played in 3 Olympics, and it would be like his 15th season in the NBA. I would rather go after younger players like Demarcus Cousins, Paul George, or Russell Westbrook in the summer of 2018.

26 Jun 2017 01:24:18
I'm in Oh but not a big Blk fan although he had his best season. Now it's funny looking at names I'm not going to mention jump off the band wagon when all I saw were people saying let's keep the young core. Magic did exactly what I said he would and as I said these guys have no value and LA not built to wait. The pg3 trade will happen and you may see A Davis next yr.

26 Jun 2017 14:40:09
Scorpionking- Magic Johnson can only do so much. He gave the Lakers a chance at free agency in 2018 by giving up an asset in D'Angelo Russell. However let's look at it a different way what if he strikes out? There is a risk for reward and risk that fails. The only way to know is if he brings in 2 allstars in 2018. If he doesn't then the Russell trade for cap space was a fail.

27 Jun 2017 00:04:36
A chance at . ca is more than they had before so it's a win regardless. If I remember citywide you were one that said keep the core and they had to spend the cap money on someone which they didn't and proven it was dumb. Russell, Randle, nor Clarkson are nba starters and I told you he would get rid of them all t week of which he can't give away.

27 Jun 2017 22:54:03
A win regardless? Personally I think its a steep price to give up Russell and get no all stars in free agency. I made the claim stay with the young core but sign all stars when the Lakers can get them. Nothing is guaranteed.

We are all talking here. Just because we like allstars doesn't mean everybody is coming which goes back to my logic which is at least the Lakers have a young core to develop. This year the Lakers are out on Free agents based on what Magic and Rob said.

Next year there is Lebron, PG13, Westbrook, Cousins, and Isiah Thomas.2 years from now Klay Thompson and Draymond Green hit the market. If none of these guys come then it will set the franchise back cause that 2019 pick isn't coming and trades these teams want way too much.

21 Jun 2017 02:34:09
Looks like Lakers are going to select Lonzo Ball. Will they trade the pick and go down a bit and get some more assets? I think Lonzo can last until 4 or 5.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jun 2017 03:10:28
Please for heavens sake please don't try to trade jordan clarkson he by far lakers best bench guy and could possibly and 6th man material for lakers.. i think he lead the scoring for the lakers when lou williams was traded so please don't trade JC

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 15:41:23
Bench guys are a dime a dozen.
Eric Gordon, Lou Williams, Will Barton, Nick Young etc there are plenty of offensive oriented players who will come of the bench and spark some energy.

21 Jun 2017 01:27:41
First, I'm the only one who visioned a trade for Brook Lopez way back April, 2017.

Second, I really belive that Lakers will be pursuing Paul George.

Third, I posted about Lebron James coming to L.A.

#2 and #3 is being negotiated now.

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Jun 2017 02:26:10
Your not the only one who visioned that in this forum. Brook Lopez for Timofey Mozgov was rumored ever since the trade deadline. That was a very common trade rumor. The key was the prospect the Lakers had to give up. Hopefully the Pacers accept the offer but without Randle.

21 Jun 2017 02:31:53
Congrats.

20 Jun 2017 23:30:40
Oor how about this trade
Pacers get clarkson 8th pick(from knicks) deng
Knicks get randle 2nd pick(from lakers) 18th pick from indiana and maybeeee just maybe even lakers 28th pick
Lakers get paul george kristaps porzingis and maybe a second round pick from on of the otherz

Agree3 Disagree2

20 Jun 2017 22:44:51
If you had to choose an option from each section, what would you guys prefer the Lakers do with the #2 pick?

1. Draft
A: Lonzo Ball
B: Josh Jackson

2. Trade Down
A: Trade with Kings for #5 and #10.
B: Trade with Suns for #4 and 2018 1st round pick.

3. Salary Dump Trade
A: Trade with Deng and Mozgov and the 28th pick to the Nets for expiring contracts Brook Lopez and Trevor Booker.
B: Trade with Deng to the Kings for the #10 pick and ability to waive Aaron Afflalo.

Agree1 Disagree1

Redo the 2015 Draft (first 10 picks):

1. Timberwolves - TOWNS
2. Lakers - PORZINGIS
3. 76ers - BOOKER
4. Knicks - RUSSELL
5. Magic - WINSLOW
6. Kings - TURNER
7. Nuggets - JOHNSON
8. Pistons - HEZONJA
9. Hornets - WCS
10. Heat - MUDIAY

Russell's talent compared to his peers is subpar. Most of the players drafted have 2-way potential. Booker is a better offensive player than Russell. Not hating on Russell but be honest about his potential. No biases

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jun 2017 19:35:02
You got to factor in position. Lakers needed a point guard. So they took Russell. Russell is not subpar he just isn't a leader. He rather shoot 3 pointers. The talent is there with him. If the Lakers were looking for a PF they take Porzingis. Booker is excelling cause ofpoint guards are getting him the ball. Lonzo Ball will help with this issue. Not saying Russell won't get dealt I just think your giving up on him to quickly.

20 Jun 2017 19:54:09
I would like to add though that if the Knicks were offering Porzingis for Russell right now as what the rumors are saying it's something to consider cause you put Porzingis in Walton's system along with George that would be interesting. Hey let's see the Knicks might even give up there #8 pick along with Porzingis.

20 Jun 2017 22:13:52
Fans overrate him and I just understand his potential. He can be a good scorer but that's it. Not great, not a two way force, not a centerpiece on a team. Fans place him at superstar level and he's not that talented. He's 6'5 with slow foot speed, below average defense, and low basketball IQ. We had a sample of 2 seasons and people hold that game were he dropped 40 on the Cavs in light as if the Cavs are some great defensive team (they're not) . I'm just not impressed. The things he does when people see "flashes of potential" are things that are expected and some of a number 2 pick. He didn't get a double double in assists until his second season. Can't make an excuse when Devin Booker had a few in his first season. When I note these things, it's not giving up. It's just what he is. A basic player that fans want to keep instead of attaining a potential HOFer in George.

20 Jun 2017 23:33:17
Looks like you got your wish. D'Angelo Russell was just trade along with Timofey Mozgov to the Nets for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in this years draft.

21 Jun 2017 02:33:36
Enter the realm of the Ball era. I've been watching him since he was in 10th grade. I know he will be what people were waiting on in Russell and some. A 6'6 pass first PG with a good 3-point shot and some athleticism. Lakers will be fun again.

20 Jun 2017 16:36:51
Lakers Fans Question: Would you be satisfied if you don't offer up one of russel, Ingram, or 2nd pick for PG this year and he goes to Cleveland due to best offer and he resigns there after next season? Or looking back would you pull the trigger?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jun 2017 17:49:49
This has been discussed. I wouldn't make a trade for PG13 if it means giving up assets for him when the team can get him without assets next summer. Right now its a risk for Cleveland to even make that deal but I think that the owner wants to go in a different direction. In an earlier post I mentioned Clarkson and Deng maybe a draft choice of some kind for him if the Lakers want him now. Lakers are currently looking for a lottery pick maybe to include in a George trade this summer.

People are worried about Cleveland. There is a rumor that Lebron James is leaving Cleveland for LA after next season. Should worry more about the Clippers but I have faith star players are coming to the Lakers very soon.

21 Jun 2017 00:28:13
And what happens if you do make the trade and he leaves? Then you just put us a few more years behind. And if you keep the core and he comes then you could trade for another star. If we give up too much he will be back in the same situation as with the Pacers and he would not resign.
