News has just broke that the Spurs basically gave the cold shoulder when the Lakers called about Kawhi Leonard. So as of now Leonard won't be a Laker unless he signs next offseason if cap space permits it.

Prediction Spurs trade him to the Celtics. Hate saying that but its looking that way.

I hope they trade him to Boston. They give up a lot and he leaves next year and signs with Lakers.

News has just broke that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio and wants to come to the Lakers.

Couple interesting notes to share that have been mentioned on twitter.

Kawhi Leonard was spotted at a Dodgers game last night. This could be nothing but maybe something. He didn't attend any Spurs games in the playoffs but attends a Dodgers game wearing a gold hat. Dodgers owned by Magic Johnson. Hmm.

Paul George was seen at Disneyland again before his surgery. He's been to Disneyland before. Spending a lot of time during the off season maybe something could happen to spend even more time at Disneyland.

This deal just went down.

Lakers traded Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. to the Cavaliers for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, and Cavs 2018 protected first round pick.

Not sure if the Lakers will release Frye but more than likely that might happen and not sure what type of protection is on the pick.

This deal gives the Lakers a better chance at getting Lebron and PG13.

Nance going back home to Cleveland. It will be interesting to see Nance in the dunk contest in LA but in a Cavs uniform.

This deal has been discussed. I wouldn't do this deal but if it did go down I would expect a Mavericks 1st Round pick to be included in with Noel.

I would see if we could unload Deng ( doubtful ) but even if we had to add Zubac/ Braynt and the 2nds we have. I think our 2020 first would be too far away.

why would you trade an unrestricted free agent for an injured expired contract.

How about
Noel for Bogut. It’s not like either get much playing time.

I think you are misunderstanding what needs to be done and aren't reading what people are saying about Deng. For the Lakers to get space to sign Leonard as a free agent they either need to trade Deng and get nothing in return or a very little salary contract next offseason or they must stretch him. Henson and Dellavedova are owed $20M total for the following season in 19-20. So they will be out of the running for a max free agent if your trade went through. You got to remember the max salary slot is $30M-$35M. With the young core contracts being picked up the salary will be at $81M in 19-20 season.

The asking price to take Deng was either 2 of the following players: Ingram, Ball, Hart or Kuzma AND 2 future first round picks starting 4 years from now. That's a high price to pay just to unload Deng right now especially when the Lakers don't actually need to. Teams aren't stupid. They know what unloading Deng would get the Lakers so the price will be high. I say put Deng in the rotation off the bench and show what he can do. If he can average a decent number he might get some interest from teams in the offseason as an expiring contract. If not then stretch him.

Spurs don't want to deal with the Lakers so this trade would be out because of that for one. Yes Pau Gasol could retire with the Lakers 2 years from now on a minimum contract. Also if the Lakers trade for Gasol they will be out of the running for a Max player next summer. This deal would happen between the Spurs and the Hornets. Not including the Lakers.

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.

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.
