Love it but Butler has problems with the team and organization not just KAT. Trading KAT wouldn’t be a solution Minnes. would entertain.

3 team trade LAL-MIN-DET

LA receives: Karl Anthony Towns, Taj Gibson, Ish Smith

MIN receives: Andre Drummond, LA '19 1st + 2nd rd picks

DET receives: Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Luol Deng


Lakers shed Deng's contract to clear room for a max free agent next summer (Kawhi). Plus get their center of the future.

Detroit gets young core to put around Blake and kickstart their rebuild.

Min replaces KAT w/All star center + draft picks.

If it goes though I like it.

Karl Anthony Towns is due a contract extension of 5 years $149M. If he waits this season out and makes the All NBA Team he will be eligible to receive an 5 year $179M extension. The only reason why the Wolves might part with him is because Jimmy Butler doesn't think he will win with KAT and you can't pay Butler, KAT and Wiggins max so somebody has to go. If the Lakers trade for KAT they are out of the running for other stars. I would pass on this deal. KAT will not get the Lakers in the finals or win it. Ball and Ingram will still be on rookie deals. Yes they dump Deng but have no more room to do anything.

By trading for Towns you obtain his bird rights. Trading away Ball, Ingram, Deng gives the Lakers over $60M+ in cap space next summer. More than enough to sign a max free agent, especially when you consider the Lakers can go over the cap to extend Towns. If Towns doesn't accept an extension from the Lakers even better, (more $$ to fill out the roster) he becomes a Restricted Free Agent and has to accept the qualifying offer. Also, it guarantees the Lakers the right to match any offer he accepts with another team, which will not be more than 25% of the Cap. That's 2 years with the Lakers MINIMUM. If he made it all the way to unrestricted free agency w/ o an extension, the Lakers would STILL be able to offer him the most money + a 5th year.

I know by trading for Towns you gain his Bird rights however if the Lakers were to trade for Towns an extension would be in place. That extension would start at $29M next offseason. $46M + $29M total $75M if your trade happened. Not enough for a third max free agent. It would be more wise to use that money on Kevin Durant and then fill the roster out with veterans on 1 year deals. Lakers would still have Ingram, Ball, Kuzma, and Hart under rookie deals. Just makes more sense.

Lakers aren't trading the young core anything. GM Lebron made it known.

The Lakers don't have to extend Towns right away. Worst case scenario, they have him under contract for $7.8M this year and slap a $10M qualifying offer on him next year. If the Lakers were successful with this trade, they'd create $62.5M in cap space for next summer. Or in other words, if they extended Towns at the number you've mentioned ($29M) they would STILL have $33.5M remaining in cap space to sign a max FA (Kawhi's cap number would be $32.7M) . If the Lakers feel confident Durant can be had, they allow Towns to become a RFA, max Durant ($38M) and STILL have $14M+ in cap room. Or they could trade Towns, recoup picks/ assets, then pursue 2 MAX free agents like Kawhi, Butler or Klay Thompson. Either way, you get a minimum of 2 years w/ Karl Anthony Towns in his prime + you clear Deng from the books + you gain enough cap space to purse another MAX FA. I'll take that all day, er day over Ball + Ingram.

DET receives: Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Luol Deng

PG: Rondo/Hart/Ish

PF: Gibson/Kuzma/Wagner
CE: KAT/McGee/Zubac

Lakers shed Deng's contract + get top 3 Center in his prime. Gibson/Ish are expiring contracts.

Detroit gets young core to put around Blake and kickstart their rebuild.

Min replaces KAT w/All star center + draft picks

LAL-MIN

LA receives: Karl Anthony Towns + Taj Gibson = ($21.84M)

MIN receives: Brandon Ingram + Mo Wagner + Loul Deng + '19 1st rd pick = ($25.5M)


LA gets their young Center of the future in KAT, while also providing a boost to this year's defense with Taj Gibson on an expiring contract. They also free up enough cap space (~$4.7M) to sign Wayne Ellington to a 1 year contract, which will help bolster the shooting around Lebron. Min. seems to be reluctant giving Towns the max. They get youth + picks as comp.

LAL-PHX-SAS

LA: (SF)Kawhi Leonard + (C)Tyson Chandler

SAS: (SG)Brandon Ingram + (PF)Kyle Kuzma + (SG)Josh Hart + (C)Dragan Bender + (PF)Jared Dudley

PHX: (PG)Lonzo Ball + (C) Ivac Zubac + Loul Deng + LA 2019 1st round pick

LA gives up the farm but for good reason. THEY DUMP LUOL DENG'S CONTRACT + obtain Kawhi Leonard's BIRD RIGHTS. Now, they free up enough cap for an additional supermax contract in next year's free agency AND can go over the cap to extend Leonard. They also fill an immediate need at Center with Tyson Chandler who will help Lebron compete this year and just so happens to have a convenient expiring contract ^_

So, the Bulls would either move Lavine to SG or Hill becomes a $20M backup. Not realistic. Chicago already has 7 guards on their roster, adding one more doesn't make much sense does it? Cavs moving Hill and taking on Deng would pretty much end any chances of competing this year or next. Kind of defeats the purpose of extending Love to a max contract. only winners here are the Lakers. They move Deng AND upgrade their starting center. Not lopsided at all.

A pick and Hart for Melo? Hell no. Keep Hart and move/ stretch Deng next year.

Love the concept but hate Kevin Love. FK Kevin Love! He can kick rocks and regret not bottling Lebron's ball sweat in a pickle jar for the rest of his life. Soft ass

Butler isn't a champion either. I'd rather have Klay Thompson over Butler all day er day. Kawhi, Lebron, Thompson. yes sir. Ball, Ingram, Kuzma and their "could-be potential" can all go start a backstreet boy band and battle rap over who has the most daddy issues for all I give sht. Just remember Kyle Boller had potential once. that's right, Kyle Boller had potential too.
