Lakers/ Suns/ Hawks

Lakers receive: Tyson Chandler, Tyler Ulis, 2018 1st (Suns)

Suns receive: Julius Randle, Marco Belleneli

Hawks receive: Brook Lopez, 2019 second (Lakers)

*waive Ennis

PG: Ball/Ullis
SG: KCP/Clarkson/Blue
SF: Ingram/Deng/Brewer
PF: Kuzma/Nance/Bryant
C: Chandler/Zubac

Unpopular opinion: I think Deng can give us 10&5 off the bench which is a lot better than what Brewer is doing. Deng can still do a lot that Brewer can't. He deserves some minutes.

Second unpopular opinion: Lakers need a backup PG. Ulis can shoot and fill that void. Chandler is also top 20 in rebounds. Lakers have no one top 20. This lineup provides a lot of spacing and rebounding. Chandler brings toughness. I like this deal regardless of his contract.

Lakers do not want to add more money for next year. They are trying to get more cap space not less.


2.) 07 Dec 2017 16:47:27
To add what Toolguy was saying the Lakers have no plans to play Luol Deng. So its not really an opinion when something isn't going to happen. In Deng's 13 minutes he did play he looked lost.


3.) 07 Dec 2017 21:43:20
Deng should just get bought out.


4.) 07 Dec 2017 22:14:17
Judging a players by 13 minutes played is no different than calling Zo a bust less than 30 games in but whatever you say, you’re the basketball genius right.


5.) 07 Dec 2017 22:16:17
Too add to what I’m saying, none of this is really opinion if it’s not going to happen if we continue with your logic. This whole forum is a waste, if we continue to apply your logos. All that cap space and the only realistic option is PG13. They can only offer him so much. Chandlers contract is only 13M for one more year after this. If they extend Randle, I wonder what their cap would be and your responses.


6.) 08 Dec 2017 17:49:47
GM step into reality dude. Deng most likely will not play another minute for the Lakers and will be stretched at the end of the season. You can sit here and argue or disagree all you want its not going to change. Are you an LA resident GM? Do you watch Lakers insiders and local Lakers coverage? If you did you would know the thought process of the Lakers and already know what is happening. This is a developmental year and Walton and management want to play the young guys. Chandler makes zero sense for what the Lakers want to do plus he is having a very poor season. If PG13 comes then that is what happens. If he doesn't there will be back up plans.


7.) 12 Dec 2017 02:23:24
Lol you really think you know how the Lakers think because you watch Lakers insider shows LOL! Chandler’s having a bad season? BUT unlike any Laker, he’s top 15 in rebounding! You’re really just a fan just like me. Get off your high horse. Chandler doesn’t fit but “I can’t grab 5 boards a game” Lopez does? Oh it’s because he can (occasionally) shoot a 3, I forgot! Please tell me more on the Lakers thought process, o mighty one. (sarcasm) Remember when you said they wouldn’t trade Russell and questioned my trades with Russell then they TRADED RUSSELL? Yeah, I’ll take your “insider” - based know-it-all remarks with a grain of salt.


8.) 12 Dec 2017 07:26:37
Well when Magic Johnson himself tells everybody what his plans are directly its kind of hard to say oh they will do this or that. He said he is trying to preserve cap space and acquiring Chandler ruins that. You know he is owed $13M next year right? Chandler's contract isn't expiring so Lakers aren't doing that.

I still believe they shouldn't have traded Russell. If no allstar free agents come then that will be a mistake. I knew Russell was on the market and at the time I thought he would go to the Pacers. I still believe that Russell and Ball could've worked together but hey that was Magic's decision. However I can only judge after what happens in the offseason. I will say it again. If no allstar free agent comes to the Lakers this offseason then the Russell trade was a mistake.


9.) 12 Dec 2017 20:34:11
I know how much chandler is owed.13M is a reasonable price for one more year. Especially when the 2019 free agency center class is pretty good and a lot of those guys will fit well with the Lakers core (ala Nikola Jokic / Deandre Jordan - unrestricted) .

Russell was a known party boy in LA. Lakers defense would be lackluster and he would probably show up to practice lethargic and drunken as I’m sure he has. He’s been injured to the point where he’s missed weeks these past two seasons. He is better off somewhere where they aren’t looking to be serious for a while. I doubt Paul George stays in OKC where his play doesn’t translate to wins. More so, I have no problem with going after mid tier players that won’t get in the way of Ingram’s development: Danny Green (possibly the best if not one of the best 3&D SG) or making an offer for Zach Lavine who was averaging 20ppg up until injury. Those guys will compliment the core well too.

The Bulls aren't getting anything in return to merit giving up a 1st round pick.


2.) 01 Dec 2017 23:11:33
GM I have to agree with Laker Love. Bulls pick will be a guarantee top 4 pick this year. They aren't trading it with Mirotic to get free agents to be Okafor and Brewer. Reports are that Mirotic now is ok with staying with the Bulls.


3.) 02 Dec 2017 03:19:24
You don’t think a former 3 pick scoring big man who can easily average 20+ As he did as a rookie is not worth a one dimensional 3 point shooter in Mirotic and a first?

Chicago has Portis and Markkanen as their 4’s > Mirotic and multiple guards who can let them play 3 guard lineups and be successful: Dunn-LaVine-Valentine, LaVine-Nwaba-Valentine, Dunn-LaVine-Holiday. Point, he doesn’t have a spot for much PT on this team anyway.

Mirotic can say he would stay but he’s not a fit in what can be in CHI. Chicago has multiple picks and they can make the pick protected for years as that LAL-PHX was.


4.) 02 Dec 2017 15:24:32
The Sixers have been asking for a second round pick for Okafor and nobody has given it to them. Okafor will not average 20+ points with the Bulls. He might get 8 to 10 points a game with playing time. He did not average 20+ points as a rookie. He averaged 17 then 11. What happened? He got injured and playing lousy at practice. Lakers point of view you have Mirotic going to the Lakers and Randle leaving. Randle is better than Mirotic. Randle can drive to the basket and get rebounds. Mirotic is an outside shooter. Lakers have enough outside shooting. You mentioned PT well he won't get PT with the Lakers either. Lakers have already benched Deng and Zubac for youth movement so Mirotic would be the same situation. Shooting around Lonzo Ball? KCP is a shooter and so is Lopez. Lakers specifically want Nance as a starter so they can bring in a shooter you might know him Kuzma.

Lakers positions that will be void in 2018:
SG
C

Go after Demarcus Cousins and Paul George.

Lebron is a dream. If he comes, great. If not, Cousins and George should be priority.

PG: Ball
SG: George/Clarkson
SF: Ingram
PF: Nance/Kuzma/Bryant
C: Cousins/Zubac

I like this line up.


 

 

21 Oct 2017 16:51:59
Lakers - Hawks

LAKERS receive:
-Marco Bellineli
-Hawks 1st DP (via Rockets - Rockets will make the pick be late given the potential record)

HAWKS receive:
-Julius Randle, Josh Hart

benefits:
*incoming shooter in Marco who will fit next to Ball in 3point shooting lineups
*outgoing of low IQ, pout Randle
*Josh Hart is pointless. I'd rather have Clarkson, Vander Blu as backups. Hart is injured all the time and doesn't even play

-Lakers BUYOUT Deng (why? No one wants him or his contract, he's going to start complaining. Just do it and learn from it)

(rotation)
PG: Ball/Ennis/Caruso
SG: KCP/Clarkson/Blue
SF: Ingram/Brewer/Bellineli
PF: Nance/Kuzam/Bryant
C: Lopez/Bogut/Zubac

(3 point)
PG: Ball
SG: KCP
SF: Bellineli
PF: Ingram
C: Kuzma

(defense)
PG: Ball
SG: KCP
SF: Ingram
PF: Kuzma
C: Nance

I know after what came out within the past week the Lakers will probably have to make a deadline decision on Randle but I see a better offer than that.

For the people that don't know Randle is unhappy with not receiving a contract extension and no starting. Viewing what Embiid got that's the starting point which isn't worth bring back Randle at that amount.

With Luol Deng that will probably be what happens in the off season. It will be a stretch contract.


2.) 22 Oct 2017 18:25:17
The thing about Randle that makes me laugh is that he thinks he is entitled to all of this. He’s not entitled to an ext. or to start. Embiid’s talent is top notch and if he’s healthy he’s a phenomenal center with a lot of value to the 76ers, but that’s the 76ers. Randle’s (health and all) talent isn’t on par with Embiid. Randle is not a smart player. He’s a bowling ball, no control driving to the basket. He stops ball movement and it’s taken him 3 years to get a jump shot and we don’t even know if it’s consistent yet. Nance has improved each year and plays hard and Kuzma is a great stretch 4 in the making.

Stretching deng would be the best option. No one wants him and he can go join some contender and leave the lakers alone. Jim’s parting gift in Dengs Contract is no fun.

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

37-45
10th seed

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

GMdeNBA

1.) 07 Jul 2017 15:58:09
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.
