Trade Candidates (Expiring Contracts):
D-Wade - $23.5 million
J.J Redick - $23
Greg Monroe ~ $17.1
Derrick Favors ~ $11.7
Amir Johnson - $11
Joe Johnson ~ $10.7

1. Lakers get D-wade. Bulls get Deng, Randle, and their 2019 second rounder.

2. Lakers get J.J Redick, Amir Johnson. Sixers get Deng, Clarkson, and Randle.

3. Lakers get Greg Monroe and Spencer Hawes. Bucks get Deng, Randle, Bryant, and Denver's 2018 second round pick.

4. Lakers get Derrick Favors and Joe Johnson. Jazz get Deng, Randle, and Denver's 2018 2nd round pick.

In every scenario the Lakers don't take on salary past this season. This frees up either $30.5 or $43 mil (including Randle's $12.5 mil cap hold) for the Lakers next summer. Please add more trade options regarding the list of players above in the comments.

I would prefer option 4.

1. Lakers trade Julius Randle and Luol Deng to the Hawks at the trade deadline for Marco Bellineli, Ersan Illyasova, and Mike Muscala.

The Hawks capitalize on their expiring veteran contracts by adding a new building block to their recent rebuild. Lakers clear $30.5 mil off the cap next summer (including Randle's $12.5 mil cap hold).

2. Lakers trade Jordan Clarkson for a late 1st or early 2nd rounder.

Lakers go into 2018 free agency with just over $80 mil to spend. Sign George and Cousins to the max and resign KCP if LeBron won't take a pay cut at nearly 34 years old with a billion dollar Nike contract...

Ball - Ennis - draft pick
KCP - Hart
George - Kuzma
Ingram - Nance Jr.
Cousins - Zubac - Thomas

Didn't see much in Hart for him to replace Clarkson as backup SG. Ingram isn't strong enough for PF, he will get bullied.


2.) 28 Jul 2017 22:40:41
Did you watch Hart play in college? He improved every year and his game will translate to the NBA. He will become one of the more reliable bench players in the league by the time he enters his prime. Considering that Clarkson was traded primarily as cap relief in this scenario, the $11 mil in salary cap difference between the 2 players allows us to have about $20 mil on top of 2 max contracts and is well worth the minimal difference in skill between the two as a backup SG.

In regards to Ingram, you're correct at the moment. Given this is 15 months into the future and that may not be as significant an issue, especially with the constant increase in small ball/ positionless lineup emphasis. The reason I said Ingram at the 4 is because Paul George complained when the Pacers tried to utilize him there, but in this situation I would expect the Lakers to have him guard opposing power forwards that play within 15 feet from the basket.

Kyrie Irving asked the Cavs for a trade; which of our assets is worth trading for him (comment below)?

Lakers get Kyrie Irving

Cavs get Ball, Randle, and Clarkson

We go into 2018 free agency with ~$57 mil to spend after stretching Deng's contract. Pair Kyrie with Paul George and Demarcus Cousins and you got a contender with the average age of 23.5 (George would be the oldest at 28).

Irving - Ennis?
Ingram - Hart
George - (Mid-level Exception)
Nance Jr. - Kuzma
Cousins - Zubac - Bryant

The good thing about players asking to be traded is that you don't have to give a lot even though they are an elite player. When players ask to be traded, it takes all the power away from the original team and into the other teams hand. It's either the original team takes what they are offered or they just let the player walk and they get nothing. So we don't need to trade those 3 players together. Maybe a Clarkson, Randle and Brewer.


2.) 23 Jul 2017 03:04:39
I understand where you're coming from, but Kyrie Irving is a clutch champion and 4 time all-star at the age of 25. He has the best handles in the league and is on a team friendly contract for 2-3 more years. He is a top 3 Point Guard and debatably the best player in the league that hasn't entered his prime. The Cavs could receive the most assets in a trade since Carmelo to the Knicks. Don't kid yourself thinking Randle, Clarkson, and Brewer can realistically get you that kind of talent. Ball can't be traded till December 15th anyways so it's unlikely a Kyrie trade hasn't happened by then.


3.) 23 Jul 2017 03:53:09
Englago I know your one of the guys trying to push Kyrie Irving for the Lakers. It would be a mistake trading for him. Magic Johnson traded Russell because he wasn't a leader. Kyrie Irving is not a leader. His first 3 season before Lebron James got to Cleveland the team had a winning percentage of under .350 This year without Lebron the team went 0-9. Not 1 game won. Irving can't be the main guy. Lebron James made what Kryie Irving is today. Without him Irving isn't as good. Let the Knicks have him. Lonzo Ball is a team player. He can lead and developed good chemistry with the other players. Lakers have a better chance with the roster they have then that deal for Irving.


4.) 23 Jul 2017 12:43:44
I actually don't think we should trade for him, although I could see how you'd assume that given this post. I'd much rather have a good rookie scale contract point guard who shares the ball, than a soon max contract allstar scoring point guard. My posts are just interesting options for the Lakers. In my own opinion, we should be doing whatever possible to get a George and Cousins pairing in free agency by creating cap space through trading Deng and Clarkson (Randle would also be a casualty, but I love his game) .


5.) 24 Jul 2017 20:57:34
Guys, i don t think we should go after Kyrie, but this trade, it s not so bad

BALL + JC + Randle for WALL

THINK about this if we get wall now, cousins will sign with us next year and PG13 will come also cause, he want to play here and he will have more chance to beat warrior with us than Wesbrook .

pg WALL
sg INGRAM
sf PG13
pf LANCE or KUZMA
c COUSINS

and REMEMBER next year warriors have to choose between KLAY and KD, CAUSE klay will ask max deal, nothing less 25 M SO they can t keep him.
i think with this lineup we can make playoff, and maybe beat warrior in 7.


6.) 25 Jul 2017 03:23:27
Denzel- John Wall just signed an extension. That line up isn't beating the Warriors.

4 team trade with Cavs, Knicks, & Rockets:

Lakers Trade: Clarkson, Randle, Denver's 2018 and Chicago's 2019 second round picks.
Lakers Get: Porzingis and Frye

Cavs Trade: Irving, Shumpert, and Frye
Cavs Get: Gordon, Clarkson, Ariza, Black, Knicks 2019 (top 7 protected) 1st round pick, Denver's 2018 and Chicago's 2019 second round pick.

Knicks Trade: Anthony, Porzingis, and 2019 first round pick (top 7 protected)
Knicks Get: Irving, Randle, and Shumpert

Rockets Get: Anthony
Rockets Trade: Gordon, Ariza, Black

This trade allows the Cavs and Knicks to relocate their disgruntled stars immediately, instead of waiting until Dec. 15th for recent signings to become trade eligable. The Cavs maintain athe ability to sign Rose and compete their way into the finals, while also setting a foundation for a rebuild (expect a Love and/or Thompson trade for assets). The Knicks get a superstar in Irving along with 2 starters, all of which are at the beginning of their primes. The Rockets (who are selling the Franchise) will pair Melo with Chris Paul and James Harden to become a true contender, and increase the team's value.

The Lakers go into next summer with ~$60 million to spend (after stretching Deng's contract), giving them a chance to sign both Paul George and Demarcus Cousins. The new Lakers dynasty would be in the 2018-19 Western Conference Finals with an average age of 23 years old.

Ball - Ennis?
Ingram - Hart
George - Kuzma
Porzingis - Nance Jr.
Cousins - Zubac - Bryant

Knicks have been reported of wanting to trade Anthony, another minor contract, and picks for Irving and Shumpert. There is also a report that Knicks are no longer trading Porzingis.


2.) 23 Jul 2017 02:54:20
Melo is dealing with enough management drama with the Knicks, he's made it clear he prefers the Rockets. It will be an interesting development to see if the Cavs are willing to wait till December for a better trade offer.


3.) 23 Jul 2017 15:35:58
As far as Melo to the Rockets I doubt it happens unless a Knicks buyout happens. Rockets must trade Ryan Anderson to add Melo and nobody wants his contract. So unless some mystery team comes in and takes his contract or the Knicks change there mind on Anderson I doubt a deal gets done. The Cavaliers are in no hurry to trade Irving. Yes teams are calling about him but the Cavs can say to Irving your under contract and we aren't trading you. Yes it will be interesting to see what team come in with an offer that the Cavs like. I think the Wolves, Clippers, Suns, and Nuggets would be teams to come in with offers that would satisfy the Cavs.


4.) 23 Jul 2017 19:34:39
What if the Pacers take him? They get Ryan Anderson, Chinanu Onuaku, and a 2018 first round pick from Houston, in addition to the Knicks 2018 second round pick. Knicks also send Melo to the Rockets, while getting Thaddeus Young, Trevor Ariza, and Joe Young.

Since the report stated LeBron as the main cause of his trade request, I expect the Cavs to make a trade happen by New Years at the latest. How about Cavs/ Spurs/ Suns:
The Cavs get Eric Bledsoe, Lamarcus Aldridge, Marquese Chriss, and the Spurs' 2019 1st round pick. Suns get Kevin Love and a 2018 1st rounder from the Spurs, while they get Kyrie Irving.


5.) 23 Jul 2017 23:25:05
As far as Ryan Anderson goes if the Knicks were to offer first rounders, and Houston offers first rounder plus take salary back like you mentioned Thaddeus Young it could work but I am unsure if the Pacers are interested in that. The Phoenix Suns have stepped up as a destination for Anderson and willing to take 3 first rounders with him but the Knicks want Chriss but the Suns want to trade Bledsoe and Chandler. Knicks don't want them.

As far as Irving the report is that the Kings are making an offer that includes De'Aaron Fox to get Irving. If a deal like that happens this off season I think Lebron James needs to think long and hard about potentially asking for a trade to the Lakers.


6.) 24 Jul 2017 00:01:29
I meant 2018 and 2020 first rounders from the Spurs.


7.) 24 Jul 2017 08:18:01
I think the Pacers need to hit the rebuild button. Anderson is a good compliment offensively to Turner and Oladipo's game. They get a young prospect, a 1st round pick, and swap bad contracts for a better fit (Young has 2 years left compared to Anderson's 3).

Yea, I don't see the Knicks taking Chandler without getting rid of Noah. I saw the Kings trade and it would be a mistake for them. They're rebuild is finally set in stone and they have good pieces on a rookie scale. They couldn't build a contender around Kyrie within 2 years with their current situation so he would walk in free agency. Not to mention a Kyrie and Buddy backcourt combo would be a disaster defensively.

If your the Cavs, would you wait till December to trade Kyrie for a Jeff Teague, Andrew Wiggins, and a 1st round pick?


8.) 24 Jul 2017 16:34:09
Cavaliers are way over the salary cap and if they trade Kyrie Irving they might be in the starting period of rebuild mode. Jeff Teague contract and Andrew Wiggins extension is going to be a lot of money not only next season but seasons to come. So I would say get Wiggins, the 1st round pick plus Pekovic for cap relief which the Cavs would trade Kyrie Irving.

1. Lakers overpay George Hill or Rajon Rondo on a 1 year deal to mentor Ball.

2. Lakers trade Deng and Randle to the Bulls for Wade (could be off-season or at the deadline).

3. Trade Clarkson for a future 1st round pick.

4. Lakers go into 2018 free agency with more than $80 million to spend.

A) Sign Paul George and Demarcus Cousins to max contracts. Sign Lance Stephenson and Marcus Smart.

Ball - Smart
Ingram - Hart
George - Stephenson
Nance Jr. - Kuzma
Cousins - Zubac - Bryant

B) Sign LeBron, Wade, Melo, and Chris Paul at $20 mil each on 1+1 deals with no trade clauses.

Paul - Ball
Wade - Hart
Melo - Ingram
LeBron - Nance Jr. - Kuzma
Zubac - Bryant

Update: George Hill has signed a 3 year deal with the Kings, so the Lakers should shift their focus to Rondo.


2.) 05 Jul 2017 00:25:51
Update: part B is bad for the Lakers and more than likely impossible.
