The Lakers get Harris and Allen

The Nets get Ingram

I don't see a very good reason for the Lakers or Nets to let those guys go. Allen is a solid defensive big, with a capella-like stamp on his future. Ingram is still developing, and I don't see another team offering enough to lure him away just yet. If he has only gained 10lbs and hasn't improved his shooting in 2 years then dump him maybe. He's sean Livingston at the worst.

He’s a 22 year old averaging 19 5 and 3. He has all star potential, but he doesn’t fit well next to Lebron and the Lakers need guys now. Allen and Harris are both young, have some upside, and fill two of their biggest needs. Plus, they’re both ideal players to have around Lebron and/ or other stars.

I don't hate this trade for the Lakers but i value Ingram more. Maybe i’m wrong but that’s how i see it. I also agree that he doesn't fit well with LBJ.

Just read ingram wants out. He's definitely going to be involved in a trade it looks like.

@ jorgawood, What do you think of the Milwaukee Bucks sending M. Brogdan and C. Wood to the Lakers for B. Ingram? They could then use Ingram at SF and move Middleton back to SG.

Thoughts?

I'd do that deal if I was both teams teams.

I think Ingram and james work. James need to step up defense and be more a defense leader. Plus lakers need ball back.

Exactly, the issue with the Lakers is defense. They are last in the league in defensive efficiency. They need to get 2 way players to "teach" the young wings how to slap the floor.

In a effort to eliminate defense the NBA has put a premium on defensive players. Changed the Center position dramatically.

They where a top ten defense and 3 or 4 games behind first before james got hurt. There a top 4 team in west when all healthy so y can't james and Ingram play together. That was through 34 games.

They were that until James got hurt and other teams started to figure out the New LA Lakers with James and Chandler. I think it just took half the season for other teams to figure them out.

It was just a messy team with a bunch of volatile aging misfits and young guys that don’t really know how to win. Lebron held it together until he was hurt and he looked out of shape after coming back. Which makes sense given how big he is, how old he is, and the fact that resting his lower body was really the biggest part of healing.

I could see something like this happen. Their chemistry sucks. I wonder how much effect the failed tampered AD trade affected Ingram and Kuzma.

Ok, but why would the Nets want to offload Allen for Ingram, when they have no replacement for Allen, but have many for Ingram: Levert, Crabbe, Hollis, Harris, Carroll. Allen for Ingram is probably closer. I think Harris adds too much from the Nets. This is fine for the Lakers obviously.

Ingram is as frustrating as Wiggins. Similar stats. Doesn’t make the team better offensively or defensively. Just overpaid.
