TRADE WITH THE CHARLOTTE HORNETS

HORNETS GET: LUOL DENG + PROTECTED 2020 2RP
LAKERS GET: BISMACK BIYOMBO

1. LUOL DENG didn't PLAY THIS YEAR, BUT BISMACK BIYOMBO DID. THE CONTRACTS ARE SIMILAR, BUT THE LAKERS GET A CENTER THAT CAN ACTUALLY PLAY SOME MINUTES.

2. HORNETS GET A PROTECTED 2ND ROUNDER TO COMPLETE THE DEAL.

Here is the problem. If the Lakers did that deal then the Lakers would be out of the running for a second star next off season. They must stretch Deng or clear Deng's salary off the books completely to get a second star. Adding Bismack Biyombo defeats that purpose. They can't stretch him and buying him out will not generate enough cap space.

Lakers will have a McGee, Wagner, Zubac rotation at center.

TRADE WITH THE BROOKLYN NETS

NETS GET:LUOL DENG (2YRS LEFT) + 2019 1ST ROUND PICK

LAKERS GET:DEMARRE CARROLL (EXPIRING)

1. NETS GET A 1ST ROUNDER TO TAKE ON DENG'S 18 000 000/YR FOR 2YRS

2. LAKERS GET A CARROLL'S EXPIRING CONTRACT, WHICH GIVES THEM MORE CAP SPACE ON 2019 FREE AGENCY (45,525,344 ACCORDING TO BASKETBALL REFERENCE PAYROLLS)

That's the type of deal the Lakers are looking for but the Nets are looking to conserve cap space next year to sign a star free agent. When they strike out they may do a deal to take on an expiring contract of Deng with a pick attached.
