Likely no. But I would like to get rid of LeBron and Davis.

Can the Lakers and Dallas do a sign and trade?

LA: Irving
Dallas: Russell

Yes they can. However Irving, Russell, Lakers and Mavericks would all have to agree on the deal and both teams would have to agree to pay what each player wants. Here is the problem Irving wants a 4 year max contract extension. The Lakers were reported only willing to go 2 years. So that's not going to work. It would make more sense for the Lakers to resign Russell, Hachimura, and Beasley than sign Irving at that price. If you are the Lakers do you want to commit 4 years $200M to Irving? I say no. However we will all find out what contract offers are available to him. Also in addition I think the Mavericks will want draft compensation included which the Lakers do not have much of.

Lakers: F Van Vleet+ D Green
Tor:S Curry
Warriors: Westbrook+Barnes+Boucher+1rnd pick Tor 23-25-27+ 1rnd pick LA 27-29+swap option LA 28+ swap option Tor 26


C:D Green
PF:A Davis
SF:LB James
PG:Van Vleet

GS can start a rebuilt with a young core and draft picks and aim for the 25 free agency class to get the missing part.

What would be the smartest to do for the Lakers?

1) Trade 2 first round picks and Westbrook for Irving.
2)Trade 2 first round picks and Westbrook for Turner and Hield
3)Trade Westbrook and one first round pick
4) Keep Westbrook
5)something else


1.) 24 Aug 2022 03:06:05
At this point keep Westbrook and keep both first round picks. Turner is a free agent after the season and Hield will not make the Lakers any better. It would be a mistake trading 2 firsts for those 2 players.

The face of the Lakers has successfully transitioned from one star to another. What young star in today's game could be the succesor to James if he leaves?

1) Anthony Edwards:
2) Ja Morant
3)Zion Williamson
4) B Ingram
5) Trea Young
6) Luka Doncic
7) Lamelo Ball
8) somebody else
9) None


1.) 02 May 2022 03:02:26
Right away well nobody cause the Lakers have no assets other than a 2027 and 2029 first round pick to get any of them. Those players are under team control for around 6 to 7 years each. Lakers will need to go year by year and view each free agent class and figure out who fits the team best. Also they must draft well when they are eligible for a pick instead of giving it away in trades.

What teams are possible destinations for LBJ and Lilliard?

I can see LBJ go to a contender like Phoenix (playing with CP3), Golden state or the Nets.

I don't see a team that has enough assets to make Portland happy and that can content for a title. Maybe the Lakers can swap A Davis or the knicks could be prepared to give up their young players and assets.


1.) 17 Mar 2022 20:02:03
There is 2 ways to approach this. Reality and hypothetically. Reality is he is under contract for $44.4M next season. Teams are not going to want to give up assets for a 1 year rental of Lebron James. They will want a commitment of say 2 additional seasons which would brings him to his 22nd year. Big 3's don't work all the time and for a team like say the Suns, Nets or Warriors they would have to give up a piece in order to get him. That's not happening. There is an outside chance of him leaving for say a team like the Cavaliers where he would go home again but I find it hard to believe management or ownership wanting to deal with him again. He should just end his career with the Lakers. Lakers are not going to take on long term contracts.

Now hypothetically speaking just to talk if the Suns were to give up Devin Booker and say Jae Crowder sure that should be considered. If the Warriors put say Klay Thompson on the table along with Moody or Kuminga that might be enough to get a trade done. Nets really don't have anybody that would make sense for the Lakers in a trade for Lebron other than Durant but he will be untouchable. Irving is great but I don't see him getting dealt in a deal like that either. Simmons well he is represented by the same agent as Lebron. That's not going to work. Earlier I read someone bring up the Heat putting a package together which would make sense for the Lakers but doubt the Heat do it.

No way Lakers do this. You set them back 3-4 years and this is a team that hates to lose.
