Lakers sign KCP for 1Y 17M

PG: Ball/Clarkson
SG: KCP/Nwaba/Hart
SF: Ingram/Deng/Brewer
PF: Randle/Nance/Kuzma
C: Lopez/Zubac/Bryant

10th seed

If Detroit rescinds his QO, then this can possibly work unless he's interested in another place

It's possible but it's more less if another place offers a multi year deal. Lakers are right now at a disadvantage with 1 year deals. I know they attempted very hard to get Avery Bradley but couldn't via trade. Eventually get somebody.

Lakers/ Pacers/ Pistons

LAKERS - George
PACERS - KCP* (s&t), Randle
PISTONS - Brewer, 2019 pick swap, 2020 first (Lakers)

*waive Black, 6.6M*

sign: Tyler Ennis (2Y, 8M)

PG: Ball/Clarkson/Ennis
SG: George/Hart/Nwaba
SF: Ingram/Kuzma
PF: Nance/Deng/Bryant
C: Lopez/Zubac

-Better than letting him sign with another team (which will more than likely happen)


1.) 26 Jun 2017 16:07:36
bryant has more upside to start him over deng, or just get rid of deng for substantial picks, late 1st or second rounder.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 00:16:24
A second round pick over a vet who can still play decent ball?



20 Jun 2017 18:53:11
-Lakers are not trading Ingram and the #2 pick.

-Lakers like Ingram, Nance, Zubac.

-Lakers called about Porzingis TWICE, after he skipped the April meetings and recently with the rumors that Porzingis is available. I wonder if Jeanie and Phil do business....

-Lakers want another lotto pick, apparently Kennard impressed in his workouts.

-Lakers might add 1-2 free agents this summer

These are the reported rumors that make the most sense. Lakers know Mitch and Jim messed up taking Russell over Porzingis.

Lakers would make a mistake trading the pick for anyone other than a star. Why they would want to trade back confuses me. The only scenario I can think about is if the draft plays out like this:
1. Fultz - Celtics
2. Fox - Lakers
Lakers/ Suns (who want Fox)/ Magic
LAKERS - Gordon, 4th pick
SUNS - Fox (via Lakers), Deng
MAGIC - Randle, Bledsoe
3. Jackson - 76ers
4. Ball - Lakers (via Suns)

Lakers/ Nets
LAKERS - Lopez
NETS - Mozgov, Clarkson

PG: Ball/Mills*/Ennis*
SG: Russell/Mclemore*/Nwaba
SF: Ingram/28/Brewer
PF: Gordon/Nance/Black
C: Lopez/Zubac

* = sign

I say when 2018 comes around, try flipping Ingram and Russell for Anthony Davis. This opens up spots for PG and LBJ if they want to play.

PG: Ball/Mills/Ennis
SG: George/Mclemore
SF: James/28
PF: Gordon/Nance
C: Davis/Zubac

You have officially seen my "dream" lineup
Best defense in the league right here


1.) 16 Jun 2017 18:32:27
There is another scenario though. Say the Celtics pick Lonzo Ball. The Lakers could be happy with Fultz, Jackson or Fox with Ball off the board. Who has the most value Fultz. They could select Fultz and trade it to either the Sixers or Suns for the 3rd or 4th pick + a 2018 pick. Will that happen? No. I agree the Lakers will make the pick and stay but look at a scenario coming away with say Jackson + a Suns 2018 first rounder.

2.) 17 Jun 2017 00:27:06
I wouldn't trade Randle

Send Clarkson, Mozgov, Nance 28th pick for PG13
Draft Jackson.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 15:23:32
Zanin: you are undervaluing George and overvaluing Randle, Clarkson and Nance.

Prime Paul George is not worth 6th man Clarkson, role player Nance, out-of-date big man Mozgov and a 28/ 30 first round pick. That's not happening. Any trade involving George will either involve Russell or Randle or both. Randle is good but his potential is limited.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 07:26:29
Randle is 22, Magic Johnson didn't even have a jump shot at 22 look how he turned out, Randle is no were near that but he is the only one who has a go double double machine plus his passing is geting better and that's all ya need from your big forward
PG13 is 27/ 28 like most players he will be past his best at 32 that's 4 good years
Only get PG13 if he signs up in 2018 don't trade youth.

1. Lakers cannot trade the pick. They have to draft THEN trade.
1a. IF they draft Ball, they are more than likely keeping the pick

2. Lakers will not trade Russell to move DOWN to the 3rd pick, even if it involves getting rid of Mozgov's deal.
2a. Mozgov's contract hold for the 2017-2018 season is 15M. They'll want to get rid of Deng first at 18M per
2b. Okafor plays ZERO defense, not worth trading DOWN + RUSSELL

3. If they trade anyone for anyone, it'll be for what Magic, Pelinka, Jeanie want:
-all star by 2018 all star game (Jeanie
-modern center (Pelinka)
-Paul George (Magic)
3a. How long do you keep a player who wants to be in another city? They'll want to trade George for what they can rather than have him bolt in 2018

4. Lakers have room for one max contract. Cap only increases by 1M in 2018-2019, the FA class Magic likes
4a. Trading for George now allows for 1) adding Dengs contract to the package which 2) clears space for 3) another slot to open up. If you add all this together, you get:

George as the all star Jeanie/Magic want for 2018, Magic adds the modern center Pelinka suggest in his favored FA class next year, Cousins. They're thinking George/Cousins combo for the future.


1.) 17 May 2017 18:45:10
again why would we trade for paul george. He can come to us next year. Honestly be patient why would we give up young talent he can come to us in a year.

2.) 17 May 2017 23:25:07
3736andrew: i already stated why to trade for George now.
it's not impatient. If you can land Paul George, you go for it. Ingram, Russell, Clarkson, Randle, Nance, Zubac. They're not all staying together. Take Russell and Clarkson or Russell and Randle. There's more than enough young talent left.
If they trade for him Lakers will have George's bird rights in 2018, allowing them to make a signing over the cap. They will be able to sign that max player in 2018 along with re-signing George.

You want this:
Ball/ Russell/ Ingram/ Randle/?
But where does George fit in? You say wait and add, so where will he be inserted at in this lineup? Center?

Why? Why? Why?

1) value of Irving can net back Dragic and Winslow from Miami or Thomas, 2018 Nets pick from Boston. So you trading a group of BENCH PLAYERS, bad contracts, and a 2nd for a young all star talent with a ring in his resume is not going to work.
2) What is the point of this for the Lakers. As if Magic did not make it clear enough, LONZO IS THE PG FACE OF THE LAKERS. Irving wants to be the face. Irving is a PG. It does not work.

Laker Love - I don't think you understand salary dump. Trading clarkson, a future first, and Denver is not a realistic salary dump. Clarksons value is not high enough to attach to anything except the exchange of a second or another player. Dumping Clarksons salary with a future first will set the Lakers back. Clarksons productivity at 12M is good and does not do any harm right now.

Not as much as Deng at 30+ making 18M per. You would need to at least attach Randle and a future first to get rid of Deng.

Didn't see much in Hart for him to replace Clarkson as backup SG. Ingram isn't strong enough for PF, he will get bullied.

Why add yet ANOTHER PF, (Randle, Bryant, Nance, Kuzma) . There's a logjam already. Arthur doesn't help. Mudiay is a turnover machine and not a reliable shooter. Lonzo needs shooters around him. And I doubt Mudiay's future is a backup PG. he will build his stock back up this year.

Clarkson's ceiling is peaking. He is a sixth man and everyone knew that from the jump. He has a tradeable contract but he is reliable at what he does and isn't constantly injured. He's still fairly young and can play. I don't see why fans want to trade him. He's great for this team.

Don't think amelo would waive his NTC for LAL. Plus I'd rather have PG13 over 34 year old crybaby MElo. Not a good teammate. Not a reliable vet. Often injured.
