People won’t like this but trade James before he leaves for nothing. Like he always does.

James for Bam, Duncan, Herro
Then
Davis for Collins, Hunter, Knox
Then
Westbrook for Heild, brogdon and a 1st or 2



Pg Brogdon/ Nunn/ THT
SG Duncan/ Herro
SF Heild, Hunter
PF Collins/ Knox
C Bam/ Johnson
I would resign Monk but he’s going to get a big raise after this year and we can’t pay him.

That's good quality value for Lebron James in a trade however the Heat wouldn't do it cause Lebron would have a year remaining on his contract and would need a commitment of probably an additional 2 more seasons. If he leaves the Lakers he will just sign with the Cavs at a lower rate.

Davis has a no trade clause. I say keep Davis unless there is some kind of demand. The value the Lakers are going to get for him will be kind of low due to the no trade. He will want to go to Chicago and the Bulls aren't giving up major pieces to get him.

Lebron James and Anthony Davis wanted Russell Westbrook so my thoughts are they should ride it out until next offseason.

If NOLA won’t trade with Lakers and Celtics get their man. And we miss out on key FA.
Nets/ Lakers
Nets get LeBron
Lakers get D-LO, Harris and Allen
Sign Curry, McGee, Parker all to 1 year deals. And go after Davis next year.
Ball, Hart, Curry
D-LO, Harris, Bonga
Ingram, Parker, draft pick
Kuzma, Wagner
Allen, McGee, Bryant

I know this won’t be popular but there is a small window with LeBron.

Lakers are favored to win the championship next season even before a Davis trade or free agency. Yes Lebron has a small win but with the Lakers.

James just screwed the Lakers! Now there is no chance of winning a championship. Near $50 million for a nearly 40 year old. Are you kidding me! When is the last time he played more than 70 games? Now not much cap room for the next 2 years. Almost $100 million between 2 players that can’t play more then 3/ 4 of the games.

toolguy

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.


2.) 01 Sep 2022 01:05:57
We had Lebron last year and we didn’t even make the play in. He nor Davis can play a full season. Only reason they won the 2020 was because they had 2 months off to get healthy. But if Lebron really cared about winning he could of signed for less like Harden. I understand he is a great talent but he is over rated. If Kobe had Davis and Westbrook there is no way they miss the playoffs not to mention the play in. My issue isn’t signing him but at this stage he is not worth $50 million a year.

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.

What’s the Rose rule?

toolguy

1.) 02 Dec 2018 01:53:55
The Rose Provision allows players coming off their rookie contract to sign a 30% max contract, instead of the normal 25% max contract all other players coming off their rookie deal are eligible for.

To qualify for the Rose Rule, a player must meet one of the following three requirements:

Be named to the All-NBA first, second, or third team twice.

Be selected to the All-Star team twice.

Win one regular season MVP.

Just wondering. Has anyone seen anything about Leonard’s injury? Meaning is he basketball ready? The more I think about it I think it’s a bad idea to trade for him. He hasn’t played in a long time. And hearing about him hiding from the spurs reps when he was in recovery makes he wonder if he did come how much of a bad influence he would be?

toolguy

1.) 12 Jul 2018 07:22:30
There is no current update on Leonard's injury. There was a discussion on an ESPN show about this today. Teams trading for him will want to see medical records and examine him. So right now nobody knows if Leonard is basketball ready. This is just an opinion of mine. I think he is just avoiding the Spurs all together so he can't play and just enter free agency next year without injury. He is being influenced by his uncle. We don't know if he want to play for the Spurs anymore or if its his uncle. If he refuses to play the Spurs will suspend him for going awol. Yes you are right that's bad for chemistry for other teams. Now the USA team coached by Greg Popovich is happening in August. Leonard is due to arrive and be at practice in August so we will see what happens.


 

 

15 Jun 2018 04:14:38
I don’t want collage basketball. What would Randle get us in the draft? I’ve heard Mavs want Randle and that Grizz might trade their pick. What would it take to get one of those picks. Would Randle and the 25th get the job done? If not what would? I don’t see the Lakers trading Ingram, Ball or Kuzma unless it’s for a all star.

toolguy

1.) 15 Jun 2018 07:12:53
Randle is a restricted free agent and the Lakers must submit a qualifying offer first. Then must sign and trade him if they want to get value for him. If a team fears the Lakers will match the offer they can agree to a sign and trade. Value wise the Lakers could probably get a couple second rounders maybe a protected 1st. It's not going to be much. The Lakers are focused on allstars so I doubt they will be trading for top draft picks. They been working out shooters for the draft selection. People are talking trade for top draft picks. The Lakers have worked out nobody projected in the top 12.

It been said Lakers won’t trade AD for Duncan so no way do they trade him for PC13.

As a Laker fan I would love to see both Lebron and AD go. James will leave next year because he can’t win here. Look at Miami and Cleveland. Trade him now so we don’t lose him and get nothing in return. He is loyal to only himself. As far as AD we paid to much for a guy that plays for about 1/ 2 a season. And looks like he has given up.

No point for either team. Lakers want less cap space and the can stretch Deng.

Your probably right. I would like to of seen this team with Russell, Clarkson and Nance.
With a 3 guard rotation of Ball, Russell and Clarkson.
Ingram at the SF. And a big rotation of Randle, Nance and Kuzma. If we could land a good center. They could make a very good team in a couple years.

But if we miss on James but land George I think this would be a really good team.

Ball, Thomas
George, Hart
Ingram
Randle, Kuzma
Capela
I think we can get Thomas pretty cheap because of his injury.

If a dream scenario I would take Durant and if not him George over James. We already have drama with the Ball family we don’t need more with James. Plus George is 5 years younger.
