Lakers have reached out to Andre Iguodala, Rajon Rondo and Ben McLemore.

I am unsure if Iguodala will take a 1+1 contract. The other 2 might but Rondo with Lonzo Ball?

Update:

Lakers waived Tarik Black.

Lakers reached out to Tyler Ennis, Thomas Robinson and Nick Young.

There are a few teams interested in all 3 players and it looks like Nick Young wants a 3 year deal from the Lakers and they are only going 1 year so Nick Young is leaving.

Lakers had a meeting Sunday with Dion Waiters. They are now in serious talks with George Hill in regards to a 1 year deal.

Prediction time for Draft Lottery on Tuesday. Will the Lakers get pick #1, #2, #3 or lose the pick with #4, #5, or #6?

Lakers receive Brooks Lopez

Nets receive Timofey Mozgov, Corey Brewer, & 2 first round picks from the Rockets.

Rockets receive Lou Williams & Tarik Black

This deal works both cap wise and player/team wise. Lakers get Lopez a big body that can guard the paint. Can score and wouldn't take up salary cap space next season. Rockets get Williams who they are in need of plus Black. Nets are looking to move Lopez and get first round picks back. They get Mozgov which I know is probably impossible to move but he would fit what they need plus get Brewer.

Houston gives 2 firsts for Williams and Black? Where does that make sense for Houston?


2.) 17 Feb 2017 22:34:14
This would be so nice if the Lakers were to actually fo this.


3.) 18 Feb 2017 01:01:59
Rockets aren't giving up 2 1st round picks for Williams and Black.


4.) 18 Feb 2017 02:40:36
Toolguy and Carl. Right now there are 6 teams interested in Williams. I think with the amount of interest there will be a bidding war. Cap friendly contract and good production off the bench.


5.) 18 Feb 2017 15:36:54
I hope I'm wrong but 2 first is to much for Williams.


6.) 18 Feb 2017 15:55:45
These first round picks from the Rockets will be in the high 20s. Rockets are the fourth best team in the league right now so the first rounder say this year isn't going to be in the teens. Same if say the Wizards get him. Now teams like the Thunder or Pacers could give a first rounder in the teens so that would be more appealing. Those 2 would be reluctant to give 2 first rounders but maybe a prospect and a first rounder. Keep in mind a prospect like say Roberson is good value as a first rounder in the teens/ 20s.

Lakers are meeting with Larry Sanders. He is a good defensive player. Not sure how good his conditioning is but for a remainder of the season pick up he would help. Probably have to waive Calderon or MWP to sign him.

I would like to try him out for the season. And wave MWP.

Sign Durant, Derozan, and Horford

Resign Clarkson

Trade Williams and Nance for Gibson

Draft Simmons. If Simmons is not available then draft the best available player.

So the Lakers will have

Guards Derozan/Russell
Forwards Durant/Randle
Center Horford

Off the Bench
Clarkson
Gibson
Simmons (or the first rounder)
Young
Brown
Black
Bass

People may ask why Clarkson off the bench? Well if Derozan is signed can't have Derozan, Clarkson and Russell starting so one will have to come off the bench. Second Williams would be traded in this lineup so the Lakers would need that spark off the bench.

Too how max contracts in derozan, durant and horford (without bird rights)


2.) 09 Dec 2015 22:03:03
hgraham - Salary cap is going up to $90 million so there will be enough room for all 3 players. In fact its right on the money.


3.) 10 Dec 2015 07:28:04
my other issue is why would you want russell and derozan in the backcourt? both are below-average defenders. derozan hasn't been able to so that he can consistently shoot the 3 which makes him inefficient. horford is v.good but offers avg. rim protection. if you're going 4 offensive minded players you need a solid rim protector.


4.) 10 Dec 2015 08:33:14
I look at there overall game and what they bring. Yes they are all 4 offensive minded players but Derozan does pass the ball and shoots a decent 3. Defense he brings is an upgrade to what the Lakers have already. Horford is a decent defender. You get what is out there on the market who can help the most.


5.) 10 Dec 2015 20:05:24
derozan's stats 15/16

21.4 pts, 4.2 rebs, 4.3 ast, 0.9 stl, 0.3 blk

.435 fg% .832 ft%, .219 3pt fg%

I like derozan, i'm glad he's improving but he's inefficient scorer who needs to add a 3pt game. He got the potential to be a star in the league, but at the moment he's more like rudy gay.


6.) 11 Dec 2015 00:47:18
Your questioning if you would want him on the Lakers? He is an allstar who would be opened to coming to the Lakers. He can score 20 to 30 points any given night. That's an efficient scorer. Lakers have an issue getting off to slow starts all the time. So this corrects that.

As far as the defense he give decent defense. Not superior but decent. With Randle, Bass, Horford, and (Gibson in trade) those guys would work the defensive end more so. I mean each player has there strengths and weekness. I just don't believe he isn't that bad of a defender to pass him up in free agency.

So basically your having the Cavaliers helping the Lakers get Lebron James plus help. Yeah I highly doubt the Cavaliers get involved.

I think Ball and Westbrook can play together. More ball movement which is a good thing. James will probably want Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram on the roster. Westbrook not signing that extension is a gamble for OKC. I am just having a hard time believing the Lakers will get 3 max players. 2 yes. I know your saying trade for Westbrook. Honestly I would not trade Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram who make decent salaries for Westbrook who will make a max salary. Westbrook is an MVP player and would help the Lakers win but its just not realistic with George and James without a paycut and players staying.

Scorpion Do you really see the Thunder signing and trading Westbrook to the Lakers?

Denzel- Teams still pay a luxury tax penalty if over the luxury tax amount even with signing a player with bird rights. Lakers haven't been paying tax so if they sign 2 max free agents and Lopez the Lakers would be on year 1 under the tax. Cavaliers are on the 4th year this season of luxury tax paying so they will be a 4 time payer.

Spurs aren't buying out Parker. Lakers don't need to trade Clarkson right now especially with Randle.
