If the lakers retain their top 3 pick, there's a good chance they keep it and there's a good chance they trade it. The lakers want a superstar ASAP. To get one, they may use a top 3 pick to get it. A lot of people say trade for Paul George and I wouldn't mind that. But if I had the choice, I would look to trade for John Wall. The lakers need someone who could lead their team right now and John Wall could do that being the point guard.

I find John Wall to be underrated and he doesn't get much recognition like Westbrook, curry, harden, etc.
Wall can score the ball, pass it, he can definitely play defense while getting steals and blocks. He's very athletic. Now here's that trade.
Lakers trade: top 3 pick, Julius Randle, Nick Young, 2 second rounders

Wizards trade: John Wall, 2nd rounder

I don't want to trade Randle as he has great potential but we do have insurance with Larry Nance. But I would try to trade for Wall without any of our youngsters first. But if we do have to include Randle do it.

Starting Lineup 2017-2018
PG: John Wall
SG: D'Angelo Russell
SF: Brandon Ingram
PF: Larry Nance Jr
C: Ivica Zubac

Now in the next free agency, we know damn well there's a good chance we get Paul George. Sign him and move Ingram to PF. He can play that because he's long and stretch the floor. It fits with how basketball is played now.

Staring Lineup 2018-2019

PG: John Wall
SG: D'Angelo Russell
SF: Paul George
PF: Brandon Ingram
C: Ivica Zubac

You need to be realistic though. Do you honestly believe that the Wizards will trade John Wall? Even if the Lakers had the #1 pick I doubt the Wizards stay on the line for very long. The reason why you hear Paul George's name is cause he is much more realistic possibility.

Alright, if we keep our top 3 pick, Magic is going to pick Lonzo Ball, all he has been doing is raving about how good he is. Then we shoukd trade the rockets 1st round pick, a 2nd round pick, and our 2020 1st round pick with or without Deng for Jae Crowder. Then in free agency, sign Ibaka who could stretch floor and block shots. Also sign Livingston, a veteran guard who can shoot midrange, play defense with his 6'7 size. Also sign Roberson for Defense. And get rid of Mozgov's contract.

PG: Russell, Ball, Livingston
SG: Clarkson, Young, Roberson
SF: Ingram, Crowder
PF: Randle, Ibaka, Nance
C: Zubac, Black

Start the young guys this season and develop them then in free agency, sign Paul George if possible, then move Ingram to SG, George SF, and Clarkson to bench.

Why would celtics want even more picks? Plus take on Dengs horrible contract and his low performance for Crowder?

2.) 26 Feb 2017 00:47:15
Why would Linvingston and Roberson sign on to be third string and Crowder and Ibaka not to start?



21 Feb 2017 14:00:59
The rumor going on now is lakers and bulls talking Clarkson, Lou, and Randle and a pick for Butler and MCW. If I'm the lakers, I say take it. Even though it's hard to get rid of Randle and Clarkson. But they would have insurance with Nance and MCW. But in free agency, they can go after Blake Griffin to fill in for Randle if they can free up cap space (Deng, Mozgov). We would lose our top 3 pick as we would improve with butler but now we have a legitimate superstar.

So with the season going downhill, there's a pretty good chance we get our pick. If we do, it'd be pretty nice to add another young player but we should try to win soon as possible and we aren't going to be able to sign a star. Curry, Durant, Paul, Griffin, Hayward, etc are all staying put. So let's offer the bulls the top 3 pick, Lou Will, Deng, a 2019 1st round and another 2nd round for Jimmy Butler. Then look to sign Shaun Livingston(big guard,mid range shooter), Andre Roberson(defense) and Marreese Speights(stretch big)

PG: D'Angelo Russell
SG: Jimmy Butler
SF: Brandon Ingram
PF: Julius Randle
C: Ivica Zubac

PG: Shaun Livingston
SG: Jordan Clarkson
SF: Nick Young/ Andre Roberson
PF: Larry Nance
C: Tarik Black/ Mo Speights

Why would Livingston and Speights leave good teams for a team lucky to make the playoffs.
Also Bulls could get a better offer than that.

2.) 08 Feb 2017 16:37:10
Toolguy, Those 2 players would leave if the Lakers offered a good contract. I expect Livingston to leave the Warriors cause they will be way over the cap when Curry resigns and Durant picks up his option.

3.) 09 Feb 2017 04:49:01
we aren't offering them rubbish they are old we need to focus on the rebuild for ****s sake i'm sick of this bs where we try and get any old player we are in rebuild why does everything think its a quick process warriors weren't even known 5 years ago.

4.) 11 Feb 2017 15:57:50
Rahul Jimmy is only 27-28 yrs old. He's going to offer a veteran presence, a consistant scorer and defender. This is not interfering with young players at all. And signing Livingston and Speights could happen. They're old and offer experience to the lakers, both still productive too. And why would they leave the warriors? Cause they have to pay for curry and Durant this offseason. So y'all open your damn eyes and realize what we have to do here to win. and the lakers organization knows that. We don't go 10 yrs losing if that's what you want. It's already been 4. So we have our young guys and let's go get that final piece like magic said instead of using another draft pick on another young player.



28 Jan 2017 01:37:11
The lakers need a defensive star. Our defense sucks. Jimmy Butler isn't happy. Lakers should call up the Bulls and offer Luol Deng, Lou Williams, Thomas Robinson and 2 first round picks for Jimmy Butler. Very unlikely but imagine:
PG: D'Angelo Russell
SG: Jimmy Butler
SF: Brandon Ingram
PF: Julius Randle
C: Timofey Mozgov
Bench: Clarkson, Young, Nance, Black, Zubac

They should also look to trade Mozgov for a better backup SF. And then start Zubac. He's shown a lot of potential.


1.) 28 Jan 2017 03:41:14
No way Bulls do this. If they trade Butler it is to rebuild and the Lakers picks would be 2021 at the earliest.

2.) 28 Jan 2017 19:12:18
2018 pick 2019 dude if we tank we get both

3.) 28 Jan 2017 21:24:16
And if we had Butler we would not be in the bottom 3. So we lose the picks.

Bro your trades are trash. Brook Lopez ain't even in his prime no more. You traded D'Angelo for two bench big men. And no way jimmy butler gets traded for a 30yr swaggy and a late 1st rounder. Don't matter they work on espn trade machine. I could trade Mozgov for lebron on there. But don't matter cause they got no sense in them.
