Lakers. Rajon Rondo

Cavaliers. Denzel Valentine

This is a real trade that went down. The Lakers are waiving Valentine to make a roster spot available probably for either Darren Collison or Stanley Johnson. Johnson has been impressive on defense.

Kuzma & Harrell for Kings. Hield

Kuzma for Spurs. DeRozan (s&t)

Schroeder (s&t), Kuzma, and Horton Tucker (s&t) for Wizards. Westbrook

Lakers have traded Wagner, Bonga, and Jones with a 2nd round pick to the Wizards as part of the Anthony Davis trade. Davis has agreed to waive his $4M bonus. So as we speak the Lakers now have $32M in cap space. They need shooters. Time to go shopping.

Lakers get Davis & Hill

Pelicans get Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, Rondo, Beasley, Stepehnson, and 2 first round picks.

then the Pelicans trade Ball to the Suns.

Hill would be stretched during the summer. Right now the Pelicans are in a wait and see.

NOLA wanted 4 first round picks and second round picks. They likely wanted to take every future assets of Lakers in exchange with AD. But anyhow, if the trade is successful, Lakers still need 2-3 shooters around Lebron and Davis to get past GSW.

I heard about that. I would pass on it. The package that I mentioned was overpaying. 4 firsts and 4 seconds in addition to all the assets other than Hart and Zubac is just gouging.

Kawhi Leonard needs to make his decision quick. Right now at this very moment he hasn't meet with the Lakers, Clippers or Raptors yet. Lakers are going to lose out on ALL 2nd tier and 3rd tier players do to this waiting game.

I know this will be brought up so I will break it down. Carmelo Anthony will be waived by the Bulls. The only way the Lakers get him is either trade a player for a draft pick or waive a player. If the Lakers were to make a trade that opened up a roster spot for Carmelo then the Lakers would probably sign him. Odds of it happening 5%. So don't count on it.

Don't count on the Lakers to make any major moves if any this trade deadline. Lakers are holding onto cap space created to sign a max free agent this summer. So no Marc Gasol, Mike Conley or Bradley Beal aren't being traded to the Lakers.

I would have gotten Marc Garsol a few years ago but now he’s to old and our centers are doing good not great but good if we do get him it’s got to be at a small price.

The Lakers have stretched Luol Deng's contract. He will be paid his full salary this season but it will stretch out the following 3 seasons for $6.27M each of those seasons. Lakers will have $33M-$38M in cap space for a max free agent next off season depending on the cap numbers and other player movement.

Lakers have signed Michael Beasley. He can score and shoot. He can also shot the three. So I think he is a good pick up.

People the Lakers are over the cap by $2M. This is what happened tonight in case you missed the other agreements.

Lebron $35.6M
KCP $12
Stephenson $4.5M
McGee $1.5M

Randle has a $12M cap hold

The Lakers can do nothing with the roster and sign Randle to a 1 year contract or renounce Randle and get $12M cap space. Randle will probably be gone now and the Lakers will then have $12M more to spend on the roster. Still have a chance Deng gets stretched or buy him out. Perhaps let him stay on the roster and deal with him next year and his expiring contract.

Lakers have renounced Julius Randle which frees up $12M in cap space and they agreed to terms with Rajon Rondo. Interesting. No shooting. Hopefully the Lakers get shooting.

Lakers and Pistons are over the salary cap so the salary must match for the Nets which it doesn't in this trade. The only 2 teams who can take on salary are the Spurs and Pacers. Neither will help the Lakers unless they get 2 first round picks in return. Which neither have players who will make the Lakers a championship contending this season.

Beverley and Nunn would get other players but no assets. If the Lakers are below .500 by the trade deadline and the Lakers can't get expiring contracts in return those 2 will probably get waived. You have Irving going out and a 2029 Lakers first coming in? Yeah not happening. Irving around the league has a very low market value. If it is going to cost the Lakers all those picks to get Irving this season might as well wait until he is a free agent this coming offseason.

Tyler Herro just signed a contract extension and is not eligible to be traded until after the season. Lowry is going to be 37 in a few months. Lets pretend if this trade could happen I wouldn't do it. Doesn't make the Lakers a championship team. Lakers will wait until after this season to make changes cause like you claimed about the Heat the Lakers will gain cap space.

Anthony Davis is balling out right now. I am sorry but the Lakers are not trading him. If they were to trade him the Lakers would be asking a lot for him which would include multiple first round picks and a superstar player in return. Lakers are not giving up first round picks to unload Westbrook. Lakers do not win in this deal. They lose more. Irving is not reliable. No team is interested in him and reports are the Lakers have lost interest.

You have the Lakers giving up Davis, Westbrook and a 1st round pick and not even get Durant in return? Yeah no thanks.

Lebron James can't get traded this year due to his contract extension. The pick swap can't get traded back until the selections is made. If the Lakers were rebuilding then yes.

Jazz are demanding 2 first round picks. Lakers are not trading first round picks to get rid of Westbrook. So that deal isn't happening.

Lakers are not trading a first round pick. Nets trading Irving and O'Neale isn't enough to get a 2029 Lakers first round pick. Irving on the Wolves? That will not work out at all.

You can probably take it one step further which is no team will be interested. I think he may retire after this season.

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.

Lebron James is a superstar talent. If he is not on the team the Lakers will be irrelevant. Lakers will have $20M in cap space next season plus the mid-level to sign players that's with Lebron and AD on the roster. Might as well anyway cause the pick would be owed to the Pelicans so say if the Lakers had no Lebron James at all the would be at the bottom in the west and no pick.

You use the word asset well around the league Westbrook is not an asset. He has an expiring contract which would net the Lakers long term bad contracts which the Lakers will have no salary flexibility next off season if the trade Westbrook. What will happen is Westbrook will play out his contract and become a free agent next off season. If the Lakers do poorly they will just buy him out and he will become a free agent during the season where the Lakers have no long term commitment.

As far as the opt out Lebron has no opt out. He has an expiring contract. Westbrook had an opt out but he opted in today at $47M. Westbrook is not in the Lakers long term plans so him opting out would make no sense cause no team is going to pay him anything close to that. Lavine to the Lakers is Out. Not happening. He will sign with Bulls at 5 years $250M max money. Robinson will have to take less with the Lakers so I don't see him coming either. There is talk about Monk accepting a $6M mid level so we will see but he will have teams interested. Lakers need to wait til next off season to have cap space.
