LAL send: Kuzma, Deng, '19 1st (top 20 protected, converts to 2 2nds)

Kings send: Shumpert (Exp), WCS (Restricted / Exp)

Lakers clear Deng and potentially their C for the future, could float WCS cap hold and have space for a max FA.

Kings add a young player with potential and a late first for taking on next year of Deng.

Lakers receive: Noah, '19 2nd
NY receive: Deng

Swap of bad contracts, Knicks rid themselves of a locker room issue and clear out their C logjam.

Lakers get another C who may be able to help their current C rotation. And get a pick which they can use to help dump Noah after the season.

Lakers receive: Koufos, Labissiere
Kings receive: Deng, '19 Lottery protected 1st, '22 2nd

Kings clear front court minutes, get another mentor and receive some picks.

Lakers clear cap space and receive a back up C for this year and a cheap young back up C for next year.

I think it is a rare win-win, but what are your thoughts?

2019 pick can't be traded until selected however I see Deng either being traded with a 1st in late June or early July of next year or he gets stretched. Unfortunately nobody wants Deng right now. I know people are going to keep bringing up Deng trades but the reality is the Lakers already talked to everybody. The teams interested wanted Kuzma or Ingram attached. Lakers said No.

Kings receive: Deng, '19 1st, 3x 2nds
LAL receive: WCS

At the trade deadline, IF Leonard has refused to play again:

SAS receive: KCP (get his early bird rights), Stephenson (salary matching), Kuzma, Zubac
LAL receive: Leonard

Spurs get a good young player in Kuzma and also have half a season to work out if they want to keep any of the other players.

Lakers obtain Leonard's rights and can go over the cap to resign him (Cap hold for '19 offseason is like $25m), they would be a Deng salary dump away from signing a third Max FA next summer.

The Spurs don't want what you just said. Trading Leonard to the Lakers so the Lakers can sign a third star via free agency in 2019. If the Spurs do any deal with the Lakers the package will start with Brandon Ingram. Lakers are reported to no longer be in talks.
