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.

LAL send: Deng, Hart, '19 2nd
Receive: Melo
Clear cap space for '19 offseason and give LBJ a banana boat friend to play with.

Kings send: Temple
Receive: Deng, Hart, Ferguson, '19 2nd
Receive two young wings and a pick for their cap space.

OKC send: Melo, Ferguson
Receive: Temple
Get a two way wing for what it would cost to waive Melo (also won't have any dead cap the following 2 years.

A pick and Hart for Melo? Hell no. Keep Hart and move/ stretch Deng next year.

I'm going to have to let people know this before we hear more Melo trades. When the Lakers signed Stephenson they now have $382,000 in Cap Space this year. What you have going out for Melo doesn't match. I know what you are thinking which is clear cap space in 2019. That's not going to work here. Thunder will stretch Melo.

Lakers - Thunder:

OKC receive: Deng, '19 & '23 2nds
LAL receive: Melo

Lakers get rid of Deng, take on more salary for this year and give LBJ a banana boat friend.
OKC shave a large amount of salary and tax with this trade, also add a couple of seconds.

Lakers only have $5M in cap space. Melo is owed $28M and Deng is owed $18M so that's a $10M difference. Also the Thunder are looking to unload Melo's whole contract without getting anything in return but picks. Not happening. He will get stretched over 3 years and sign with the Rockets. People may say the Lakers but with Ingram, Kuzma, and the 2 draft picks it's not happening.

Spurs receive: Ingram, Hart, Zubac, '21 1st (LAL)
Heat receive: Kuzma, Deng, '19 1st (LAL)
Lakers receive: Whiteside, Leonard

S&T Thomas to Magic
Lakers receive: Simmons, '20 2nd

PG: Ball, Rondo
SG: KCP, Stephenson
SF: Leonard, Simmons
PF: LBJ, Frye
C: Whiteside, McGee

This was brought up a couple days ago. Lakers can't add Leonard and Whiteside. They would have to stretch Deng just to get Leonard in a trade. More money coming in than going out. Lakers only have $5M in cap space left. I say sign Brook Lopez at center. He fits much better than Whiteside.
