Lakers should keep LBJ, Monk, Nunn, Bradley and Melo. Everybody else on the table. Especially if it helps unloading Westbrook. Nunn hasn't played a second but his game and James game blend. Ir would remind people when he played with DWade. No matter what reasonable package you put together with the people that are not listed above, Lakers easily seeds in the top 4.

You were ok until you said "Lakers easily seeds in the top 4." Top 4 of what? Standings? Lakers can't defend and honestly its just too late. Melo plays zero defense. AD is injured. I doubt Nunn will get back in time to really make a difference. Lebron James takes off defensive plays. Lakers are losing a lot of games to bottom teams and blowing big leads to those teams. No matter what moves they make the Lakers will probably be somewhere in the 7th to 10th range which will be the play in tournament. Got to be realistic.

I feel the Lakers should not make a move. Hear me out....Key piece: Nunn. Move Westbrook to 6th man. Give him the full green light on the second unit. A lineup of.....
Avery Bradley
.....should give teams hell if all 100% healthy.
And Howard should fill in nicely depending on rotational needs. I'll wait till next year to trade Westbrook. Contract more valuable as an expiring one. I can see a Lillard trade next year. Portland will rebuild and a Westbrook trade would keep them somewhat competitive and cap space is going to look lovely for the 23/24 season. Something to look forward to.

I think there is an interesting message to be found within the Lakers-Cavs-Knicks trade involving Rondo.

The Cavs were sending the Lakers a partially-guaranteed ($500K) . However, if the Lakers waived Valentine they would be stuck with the $500K + $1.25 mil in luxury tax. So they sent Valentine to a team under the luxury tax with the cash to pay for his $500K and a little extra for NY's cap space (lets say $250K) .

This message? Lakers are starting to count pennies when it comes to this current roster and may not be open to adding additional salary at the trade deadline.

The message is the Lakers would rather pay nothing to get Rondo off the books rather than pay $1.75M to have to waive Valentine. The whole idea is to open up a roster spot to sign a player say Stanley Johnson for the remainder of the season. Correct I don't expect the Lakers to make any major moves. They really have no young assets other than Horton-Tucker who has regressed this season.

Weird Stat comparison that I saw today

Lakers vs. Pacific Division. 1-5
Kings vs. Pacific Division 4-4.

That one Lakers win is over Sacramento.

We have to trade with Philly. Westbrook for Simmons. And for Philly to accept, we offer THT as well and they give us Curry and any other player to match salary.

If they didn’t fire Buss and traded James for Williamson. With the roster we have 2 years left. With the one below they would be competitive for years.
Pg. Ball, Caruso
Sg. D-Lo, Clarkson
Sf. Ingram, Kuzma
Pf. Williamson, Nance
C. Randle, Zubac.
With the rest of the roster get vets that will help train them.
Not it mention the #4 pick and all our picks back and any other picks we got in the James, Williamson trade.

I would have to disagree with you on being competitive for years with this roster. First let's look back on getting Lebron James. The Lakers had to trade Russell, Nance Jr. and Clarkson just to create salary cap space for Lebron to sign. So those players wouldn't even have been on the roster with James. If James hadn't sign with the Lakers then there would be no championship in 2019-2020 season. Davis and Lebron would probably be in either Chicago or New York right now. This team minus Williamson but plus the #4 pick (De'Andre Hunter) would be in the same position in the standings as the Lakers are in now if not worse. Those players are having individually success due to there roles on the the team they are on. Some doing better than others. As a collective unit this team would be too young and lacks that star players.

Are the Lakers a stacked superteam or are they washed and old?

So Lakers vs Nets

Durant Irving Harden Aldridge Griffin Millsap vs Lebron Davis Westbrook Howard Rondo Anthony Jordan Gasol (if stays)

This is basically the 2010's all star game lmao. How many are healthy by Christmas. Hope a complete one
