Lakers should offer Deng, Zubac, 2020 first, 2019 second to team willing to take.


Lakers lineup+roster should be:

PG: Ball/Rondo/Caruso
SG: KCP/Stephenson
SF: James/Hart/Svi
PF: Ingram/Kuzma
C: McGee/Wagner

Small ball:
PG: Ball
SG: Hart
SF: James
PF: Ingram
C: Kuzma

I think Ball improves tremendously next year, similar to Ingram's second year. Weight/Muscle gain can minimize injuries and he's been watching tape with Magic. He has Rondo to mentor him and he's playing alongside his favorite player. I say they win well over 50 games.

LAL/ SAS
-Lakers receive Kawhi Leonard

-Spurs receive Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, 2018 first round pick via Cavs, 2020 first round pick via Lakers

Lakers sign:
-Paul George (max)
-Julius Randle (re-sign)
-Brook Lopez (re-sign)
-Isaiah Thomas (re-sign)
-Alex Caruso (re-sign)
-Marco Belleneli

PG: Ball/Thomas/Caruso
SG: George/Hart
SF: Leonard/Belleneli/Deng
PF: Randle/Kuzma/(FA)
C: Lopez/Bryant/(FA)

Small ball lineup would be crazy good

PG: Ball 6'6
SG: George 6'7
SF: Leonard 6'8
PF: Kuzma 6'9
C: Randle 6'9

PG13 6.9"
KAWHI 6.7"


2.) 17 May 2018 00:19:21
This is realist. Might happen. What's funny is that Denzel has brought out a fact on the heights of PG13 and Kawhi yet 3 people disagree. People look it up. PG13 is 6'9" and Kawhi 6'7".

Lakers should avoid all things Lebron and just add to their core.

FA signings
-Paul George (max)
-Deandre Jordan
-Isaiah Thomas
-Julius Randle
-Alex Caruso
-Travis Wear

FA trades
3 TEAM TRADE (LAL, SAS, ATL)
-Lakers receive (one year player) + cap relief
-SAS receive Zubac
-ATL received Deng + (24-27) Cavs pick 2018, Spurs 2019 first (protected 1-20)

Waive Tyler Ennis

PG: Ball/Thomas/Caruso
SG: George/Hart/(Summer or G-League)
SF: Ingram/vet FA
PF: Randle/Wear/Bryant
C: Jordan/FA

ATL - potential tanking team in 2019
SAS - no decent big man

Forgot about KuzGoat, he can back up Randle or Ingram.


2.) 12 Mar 2018 17:53:11
This is good but don't sign Thomas, Caruso, or Jordan. Have Randle play center and kuzma play pf.


3.) 12 Mar 2018 23:19:24
I agree on signing PG13 but I wouldn't sign Jordan. He does bring defense but the Lakers can get somebody cheaper at center than Jordan. Jordan will be looking for a 4 year $100M deal and he isn't worth that. I do agree with bring Thomas back but that's only if Lebron James doesn't sign. Shouldn't say avoid Lebron cause the way you have the roster I would say it's a 5th seed at best. With Lebron its a 2nd seed at best.


4.) 13 Mar 2018 15:31:08
No Deandre i prefer wait for klay thomson in 2019.

@city @honk

Nikola Jokic, Demarcus Cousins (assuming he stays in the West) or Anthony Davis, Steven Adams, Rudy Gobert, Marc Gasol = all seen 3-4 times a season

Drummond, Embiid, Howard = 2 times a season

You really think Randle will be effective at Center? He’s good at PF because most aren’t strong enough to contain him and he’s quick on his feet. But against those guys I named, he will exert too much energy trying to defend them to be as productive as he currently is as a PF. Lebron makes him or Ingram an odd man out. I’d rather be a YOUNG 5th seed that can grow into a 1-2 seed than get rid of Ingram or Randle for a 33 year old. Love Bron, just doesn’t make sense with how good Ingram and Randle are becoming. A center and shooting guard are the only gaps in this team.


6.) 13 Mar 2018 18:14:36
GM- So you would sign Randle for 5 years $100M+ over signing a 2nd allstar? Keep in mind what the Lakers record was at the beginning of the season and also Randle's numbers while Ingram is in the line up. Also when I say cheaper option I am thinking resigning Lopez at a cheaper number. I do agree with you and disagree with Honk with Randle at center.

Ingram and Randle are 1-2 years away from being all stars. Lebron coming will hinder their growth. I would rather sign Cousins than Lebron for a second all star but the way this team has been playing, I don’t see why there would be any necessity for both Lebron and George. I’ll take the younger of the two. I wouldn’t mind re-signing Brook AT ALL. Lonzo and Hart’s rebounding ability make Brooks lack of rebounding okay. Brook stretching the floor is great for lazy big men.

Lakers-Hawks-Blazers
-Lakers receive Bellinelli + Hawks 2018 first (via HOU, likely to be late 20s)
-Hawks receive Harkless + Randle
-Blazers receive Bazemore + cash considerations (LA)

Lakers-Pelicans
-Lakers receive Cousins
-Pelicans receive KCP, LNJ, (pick from Hawks - if necessary)

Lakers-Bulls
-Lakers receive Mirotic
-Bulls receive Clarkson


PG: Ball/Ennis/Caruso
SG: Hart/Bellinelli/Blue
SF: Ingram/Brewer
PF: Mirotic/Kuzma/Bryant
C: Cousins/Lopez/Zubac

How I would approach the drafts in the past LA has done (assuming they keep the pick each year)

-2014, pick 7 (Zach LaVine), pick 47 (same)

-2015, pick 2 (Kristaps Porzingis), pick 27 & pick 34 - trade up with POR for pick 23 (Hollis-Jefferson)

-2016, pick 2 (Brandon Ingram), pick 32 (same)
**Demarcus Cousins was offered for Ingram this season, late in the season. Lakers should pull the trigger BUT rest Cousins (tank) for he rest of the season to ensure they keep the pick the following year.

-2017, pick 2 (Lonzo Ball), pick 27 (same), pick 30 (Jordan Bell), pick 42 (Dillon Brooks)

PG: Ball/
SG: LaVine/Clarkson
SF: Hollis-Jefferson/Brooks
PF: Porzingis/Bell
C: Cousins/Zubac

This team would be a 3 or 4 seed right now without LaVine healthy.

Horrible idea, and definitely not a top 5 seed.


2.) 07 Jan 2018 19:06:50
Lakersfan- So if the Lakers had Porzingis and Cousins you wouldn't think this team wouldn't be a 5th seed? How about a 6th? Nuggets, Blazers and Pelicans aren't exactly playing very good basketball right now. Have to say though to GM that I am satisfied with the Randle pick in 2014. He should've gone higher.

Another note with Noel, his heart isn’t in the game. It’s been rumored by Dallas beat writers that Noel isn’t conditioned or plays hard enough. Why do the Lakers need Noel?

No one is going to want Bogut unless it’s a team shedding cap. Bogus contract is non guaranteed, Lakers can just waive him. Phoenix has a PF problem, Clarkson won’t help.
