Lakers problem is play not coaching. Players turn the ball over, miss free throws, miss 3 point shots, look like they don't want to be on the court. Magic Johnson will probably have to revamp the roster this off season but it may not be with the players that people are thinking of. I wouldn't trade Ball or Ingram either. Ingram needs to show some kind of growth. Very inconsistent right now.

People expected to much. The guys are young and need time to jell.

2018 off-season Lakers

Lbj opts in and gets traded along with Crowder for kuzma, Clarkson, and deng plus next available first unprotected then sign cousins and George. Resign randle. Starting line up

Cavs then trade love and always kept Brook pick

If LA gets cousins i'd say my posts have been accurate throughout while most on here wanted to hold on to youths. don't be surprised to see LA offer ingram and deng for paul george then they this have money for james.

Lakers fans this is no bs we have hope for Deng without trading him. Lakers just need to extend him after this year to a five year deal adding two mil for the 3rd,4th and 5th year. So that would be 42 mil in guarantee money. He owed 36 after this season plus the two mil each for each additional year.
Using stretch provision they multiply the years on contract (5) times two then add a year so over 11 year period they can pay Deng the 42 mil averaging 3.8 a year. But Deng will still get his money the same just hit Lakers cap different.

Agree0 Disagree2

If Deng were to be extended he couldn't be stretched. He is owed $36M after this season. Stretching him for 5 years its $7.2M hit on the cap. That's basically what Lakers fans are looking at. People have to look at it as a pipe dream if they think Deng is coming off the book especially without Ingram or Kuzma included. Which the Lakers aren't doing.

OKC gets Randle, Clarkson, Deng (ext), Brewer, Ennis, Hart, Zubac, Bryant, the Lakers 20 and 22 picks, plus swap options in 2019

The Lakers get George, Melo, Collison and Felton.

The Lakers completely clear the books, they would only have Ball, Nance, Kuzma and Ingram under contract plus George's Bird rights. It's possible at this point they could get George and 2 other stars. Then use their exceptions to try and fill out the rest of the rotation.

For the Thunder they can start a mini rebuild around Westbrook and possibly build a team like Houston or to a lesser extent Cleveland, where everyone's game fit well with Lebron and Harden.

It’s also possible George leaves and Melo picks up his option. Then we are screwed.

Lakers 2018

Cousins 4y Max

George 4y Max

Agree6 Disagree0

That is what most people are hoping for.

21 Dec 2017 05:54:32
What is up with Zubac? I would think with Lopez out for a while he would get some playing time?

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Dec 2017 19:09:14
He can still be slow (laterally) and still not ready for nba pace but I would like to see him play more.

21 Dec 2017 19:38:44
I think Walton is more in favored of Bogut than Zubac. If Zubac can't get onto the court due to coaches decision then management needs to deal Zubac befor the trade deadline. Send him some place where he can play. Lakers can the get a draft pick for him.

19 Dec 2017 15:25:53
For the rest of the season we should play with
And next season hopefully

Agree7 Disagree1

13 Dec 2017 04:21:22
So I think we need to trade
And Deng but very unlikely.
But only trade for young player or expiring contracts and draft picks. But the question is what do you think we can get?
Brewer maybe a expiring and a second.
Lopez a expiring and maybe a first.
Bogut a second.
Deng would take a act of Congress.
If we can do this play the young guys more so they get some experience. None of these players are going to bring us a top free agent. I believe the best shot is the develop the young guys and hopefully they can make some improvements and attract a top free agent if not some second tier players.

Agree5 Disagree1

No one on the roster is going to bring the Lakers a top free agent. Players don’t rush to play on a sub .500 team.

No one will give you a 2nd for Bogut because his contract isn’t even guaranteed. Lakers can waive him and another team can claim him without giving up a 2nd.

Lopez this season isn’t worthy of a first.

Not getting a second for Brewer who hasn’t even hit a 3 this year. you get nothing for these players. They are not worth trading. Just let their contracts come off the books.

17 Dec 2017 00:07:51
Your right nobody wants to play on a bad team. That’s why I want to play the young guys. They are the key to the future. They need to develop. But if we can stay close to the 500 range with no all star players and cap space some players might be interested. George/ Cousins. Both have multiple all star players and no cap space and are hanging around the bottom of the playoffs.

And yes I personally think will have to look at teir 2 players. And I do think some younger teir 2 players would be interested in playing for the Lakers. Like KCP, Favors, Noel, Barton, Okafor (if cheap), Curry and Dedmon. I would also like to bring back Lou Williams. I liked the back court off the bench of him and Clarkson.

07 Dec 2017 18:24:46
We should just go hard after boogie cousins and after pg13 in free agency.
The only trades to look at are getting deng off and somehow getting okafor as that guy is overrated

Agree2 Disagree0

Okafor was traded to the Nets last night so he is no longer an option. I am so thrilled that happened. Now we can stop talking about him.
