LAL: A Afflalo, A Tolliver, #3 pick

SAC: T Mozgov, J Clarkson, J Randle

PHI: D Russell, #10 pick

LAL: Draft Ball & Jackson #2 & #3, Adebayo #28

Have about $40M in cap space if Young opts out and release T Black

This is awful for SAC…They give up the 10th pick, and take on the NBA’s worst contract in Mosgov? This would get everyone fired.

They get 2 young prospects in Clarkson and Randle and keep their #5 pick. They add assets with this. Nobody of relevance is going to sign with them in free agency. With Gay opting out and Tyreke being a free agent, this helps them with getting to the salary floor while turning 2 assets (#5 and #10) into 3.

Good luck to all Lakers fans in getting rid of Deng and Mozgov contracts.

How long are clarkson and randle going to be considered "young prospects"?

Not sure why Kings would do this. Randle would be a poor fit alongside their centers and will be due big bucks in a year. Clarkson makes a decent amount of money already and although a solid player Kings can get a player with more upside at #10. Mozgov is a bad contract and cap space is valuable even to a bad team that won't be able to sign top FA. Teams will always be looking to dump bad contracts and will give up assets to move them. Lakers aren't giving up enough to convince Kings to give up their #10 and take on this salary when they can get a better fitting prospect at #10 and still have cap space to take one of Portlands bad contracts for one of their 3 firsts.

76ers are coming out ahead with Russell who would be a better fit than Jackson due to his shooting ability and still keep a lotto pick where they could add a solid prospect (ideally a guard like Ntilikina or Smith) .

Well Randle is only 22 and Clarkson is 24, you tell me when they stop being "young prospects"?

I remember reading that statistically, around 27 to 28 is on average the most productive age of a player.

Isn't Randle an expiring contract? Isn't clarkson a backup and nothing more? Get out of here with this junk.

Sixers keep #3 and give LA back their 2018 first round pick instead.
