Should the Lakers give up two unprotected picks to dump Westbrook and getting Turner and Hield

Pf:A Davis/Gabriel
SF:LB James/Brown Jr
SG:Hield/L Walker/Reeves

Pacers should do this:
I don't think we can get better picks For Hield And Turner and we can tank for one year. Last time Indy had a top 5 pick, was Rick Smits in 1988

Lakers should do this:
If they believe A Davis can stay healty
The Lakers and Miami are the only teams that can risk their future trading away all their draft picks. They still can sign the stars they want so they could go all in on this trade.

Lakers: T rozier+ G Hayward
Charlotte: D Mitchell+Bogdanovic
Jazz: Westbrook + 1rnd pick Denver 23+ 1rnd pick Cha 25-27-29+ 1rnd pick LA 27 and 29

Lakers are not giving up 2 first round picks to get Hayward and Rozier in return. If the Lakers wanted those 2 the Hornets would trade those 2 outright for Westbrook without draft compensation. The problem for the Lakers is that those 2 place have contracts the Lakers don't want.

Indy: Westbrook+ 1rnd pick LA 26-28 and 2rnd pick Chi 23+2rnd pick Was 23
=> Lakers save 8 million

Indy:Bertrans+1rnd pick Dal 25 (top 10 protected)
=> Dallas saves 24 million

Lakers go all in
PF:A Davis
SF:LB James

OKC: Westbrook+ Mathurin+1rnd pick Cle 23+ 1rnd pick Bos 23+ 1rnd pick Indy 24+26+ 1rnd pick LA 26

LA: B Hield+ Dort+Favors+Bazley

Pacers:SG alexander

C:M Turner/Bitadze
PF:I Jackson/J Smith
SG:SG alexander/ Nesmith

OKC go's in full tank mode now Holmgren is out.

LA get some good rollplayers back for Westbrook

Dort is not eligible to be traded. Thunder would not trade a young prospect in Alexander for an aging Westbrook and picks they surely don't need. As a free agent yes OKC would be a location that I see Westbrook signing but only as a free agent not as part of a trade.

Utah:A Davis
NEts:Westbrook+bogdanovic+Beasly+ 1rnd Pick Minny 23-25-27-29+ 1rnd pick Lakers 26-28

What would be the smartest to do for the Lakers?

1) Trade 2 first round picks and Westbrook for Irving.
2)Trade 2 first round picks and Westbrook for Turner and Hield
3)Trade Westbrook and one first round pick
4) Keep Westbrook
5)something else


1.) 24 Aug 2022 03:06:05
At this point keep Westbrook and keep both first round picks. Turner is a free agent after the season and Hield will not make the Lakers any better. It would be a mistake trading 2 firsts for those 2 players.

The face of the Lakers has successfully transitioned from one star to another. What young star in today's game could be the succesor to James if he leaves?

1) Anthony Edwards:
2) Ja Morant
3)Zion Williamson
4) B Ingram
5) Trea Young
6) Luka Doncic
7) Lamelo Ball
8) somebody else
9) None


1.) 02 May 2022 03:02:26
Right away well nobody cause the Lakers have no assets other than a 2027 and 2029 first round pick to get any of them. Those players are under team control for around 6 to 7 years each. Lakers will need to go year by year and view each free agent class and figure out who fits the team best. Also they must draft well when they are eligible for a pick instead of giving it away in trades.

What teams are possible destinations for LBJ and Lilliard?

I can see LBJ go to a contender like Phoenix (playing with CP3), Golden state or the Nets.

I don't see a team that has enough assets to make Portland happy and that can content for a title. Maybe the Lakers can swap A Davis or the knicks could be prepared to give up their young players and assets.


1.) 17 Mar 2022 20:02:03
There is 2 ways to approach this. Reality and hypothetically. Reality is he is under contract for $44.4M next season. Teams are not going to want to give up assets for a 1 year rental of Lebron James. They will want a commitment of say 2 additional seasons which would brings him to his 22nd year. Big 3's don't work all the time and for a team like say the Suns, Nets or Warriors they would have to give up a piece in order to get him. That's not happening. There is an outside chance of him leaving for say a team like the Cavaliers where he would go home again but I find it hard to believe management or ownership wanting to deal with him again. He should just end his career with the Lakers. Lakers are not going to take on long term contracts.

Now hypothetically speaking just to talk if the Suns were to give up Devin Booker and say Jae Crowder sure that should be considered. If the Warriors put say Klay Thompson on the table along with Moody or Kuminga that might be enough to get a trade done. Nets really don't have anybody that would make sense for the Lakers in a trade for Lebron other than Durant but he will be untouchable. Irving is great but I don't see him getting dealt in a deal like that either. Simmons well he is represented by the same agent as Lebron. That's not going to work. Earlier I read someone bring up the Heat putting a package together which would make sense for the Lakers but doubt the Heat do it.

No way Lakers do this. You set them back 3-4 years and this is a team that hates to lose.
