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.

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
Simmons (or the first rounder)

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.

When the Lakers strike out on Aldridge hopefully Aldridge picks the Heat. Then these 2 possible trades could happen cause the Lakers need to do something.

Heat: Chris Bosh
Lakers: Second round pick


Heat: Deng, Anderson, & Chalmers
Lakers: 2 Second round picks

The salaries don't match for your trades. The Lakers would probably do a Deng for Leuer trade straight up to save cap space however the Pistons are over the cap so it needs to match. Lakers aren't looking to sign players this off season to multi year deals. They are going to look at 1 year deals. I doubt Ibaka, Tucker or Collison are looking for 1 year deals.

I wish it would be that easy to unload Deng's contract. The Chicago Bulls would want either draft picks or young talent for compensation to taking on Deng's contract.

We as Lakers fans have gone through a tough season then we lose Russell for a salary dump. A vast majority expect Lonzo Ball to be in a Lakers uniform and playing point guard. DSJ is not a #5 pick.

Denzel011- The Celtics rejected a trade that sends the #3 pick for Jimmy Butler. So no they wouldn't do that deal. To get Butler it will cost the #2 pick. The asking price for Butler is high. The Lakers offered Clarkson, Brewer the 27th and 28th pick to the Pacers for Paul George and that was rejected.
