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)

-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

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.

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Prime Paul George is not worth 6th man Clarkson, role player Nance, out-of-date big man Mozgov and a 28/ 30 first round pick.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.

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?

-Lakers receive Brook Lopez
-Nets receive Jordan Clarkson, Timofey Mozgov, 2018 second round pick, cash considerations
*clears up 6-8M*

-waive Tarik Black
-sign Gordon Hayward to a max
-re-sign Tyler Ennis

PG: Russell/Ennis
SG: Hayward/27th pick/Nwaba
SF: Ingram/Deng/Brewer
PF: Randle/Nance/buy 2nd round pick
C: Lopez/Zubac/sign SL player

-stars: Hayward, Lopez (former)
-core in tact: Russell, Ingram, Randle
-defense improve: Hayward, Lopez- top in blocks multiple years
-modern center: Lopez can shoot the 3 now

If the young players come into training camp in the best shape of their lives and improved, I see no reason why they can't be a 4th seed with this roster. They got off to an 8-8 start with second year players and no stars. Why can't they get off to an even better start with 2 stars and improving players?

This is not dependent on the team keeping the top 3 pick.

Wow one salary dump with a player (Russell) that reportedly had maturity issues and lack of professionalism, now people think it's okay to pair Ingram and Deng in a salary dunk? Nope. Don't think it works like that.

Like the concept but as others say, I think it takes a little more to make the Bulls bite on this.

Not sure if Bulls picked up the team option on Rondo yet. They can not pick it up and I believe they will try to buyout D wade.

Boston also likes Tatum and will take him. I wouldn't draft a player just because another team wants them. Then the Lakers are stuck without a PG.
