Lakers Trade Brandon Ingram Lonzo Ball

Boston ain't going to take the deal

Lakers will take the deal it's a lottery pick

Magic Johnson big smile on his face 😁

Magic Johnson will flip the Trade if they played well with Lakers plus they're getting lottery protected pick in return

16 Oct 2018 19:43:52
If you give them a lottery protected pick, it would have to be outside the Lottery to convey. Lakers wouldn't get the pick because it would be in the lottery.

16 Oct 2018 20:51:40
How come Boston get lottery protected they already draft Jaylen Brown Jayson Tatum.

14 Oct 2018 12:46:01
Issac is worth more than ball.

16 Oct 2018 00:20:39
Who uses a keyboard?

11 Oct 2018 06:46:14

Lakers- Butler, Turner, Jones


Pacers- Ball, Patton


Wolves- Ingram, Pope, Zubac, 1st rounder Lakers


11 Oct 2018 07:52:50
The Lakers won’t be moving Ingram and without him it’s hard to make the money work.

06 Oct 2018 04:23:41

LAL get Jimmy Butler & Tyson Chandler (exp)
- add a star next to Lebron and add depth at center. don't think they need to add more to be able to get Butler with the current situation

Pg Rondo/Hart/Caruso
Sg Butler/Stephenson
Sf Ingram/Beasley/Mykhailuk
Pf James/Kuzma/Wagner
Ce McGee/Chandler/Zubac

MIN get Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (exp), Darrell Arthur (exp) & TJ Warren
- get 3 young players to move forward with Wiggins and Towns

Pg Ball/Rose/Jones
Sg Pope/Okogie
Sf Wiggins/Warren/Deng
Pf Gibson/Tolliver/Arthur
Ce Towns/Patton

PHX get Jeff Teague, Gorgui Dieng, 1st round pick LAL & 2nd round pick LAL
- get a veteran point guard to help this young team to compete for a playoff spot. They take Dieng while getting picks

Pg Teague/Okobo/Harrison
Sg Booker/Melton
Sf Ariza/Jackson/Bridges
Pf Anderson/Bender
Ce Ayton/Dieng/Holmes

05 Oct 2018 16:17:35
The Lakers get Bam, Richardson, and a Heat 2nd

The Heat get Butler and Dieng

The Wolves get Ball, T Johnson, Wagner, Heat 1st, and a Lakers 1st.

05 Oct 2018 16:36:44
Wolves already making out by getting Ball, no need for the picks.

05 Oct 2018 17:09:35
Wolves asking for Bam + Richardson for Butler + Deing. No need to involve Lakers. Besides, Heat appear to have rejected that deal anyway.

05 Oct 2018 18:03:45
That is a really bad deal for the heat. Dieng is just to long lasting of a deal and 50 million dollars. To me fair value is bam, Richardson, for Butler, Dieng, 2019 1st. That's how far off I think values have been for an expiring contract and -$50 mil. Someone will pay more and also risk losing butler after the season if the kawhi Leonard situation plays again.

06 Oct 2018 01:29:31
It’s also a bad deal for T-Wolves. Only winner here is Lakers. No deal.

06 Oct 2018 17:13:06
heat have to get something from la for this to make more sense than a trade with just minn.

28 Sep 2018 20:35:51
Pacers get - Ingram

Lakers get - Turner and 2019 lotto protected 1st

Lakers sign go for KD or Kawhi



29 Sep 2018 13:21:27
Ingram for Turner, interesting proposal. Don't think pacers are going to include their 1st though.

28 Sep 2018 19:15:05
*Lakers get: Bobby Portis
PG Rondo/Ball/Bonga
SG KCP/Hart/Mychaulik
SF B. Ingram/Beasley/Stephenson
PF James/Kuzma/Williams
Ce McGee/Portis/Zubac
- Get another young big for their roster. Losing Wagner is not bad because Portis is better and more experienced and could help contribute now.

*Bulls get: Moritz Wagner, 2021 2nd
PG Dunn/Payne/Arcidiacono
SG Lavine/Holiday/Blakeney
SF Parker/Valentine/Hutchison
PF Markannen/Wagner/Felicio
Ce Carter Jr./Lopez/Asik
- Get something now for Portis (FA) rather lose him for nothing. Wagner is a solid return since he is young and can stretch the floor, also get a second.

28 Sep 2018 07:38:19
Kuzma,kcp, and Stevenson plus 2019 pick for Butler. James mcgee Butler rondo and Ingram better then Irving smith James tt and love. Gives Lakers better chance to win even if Butler go to NY teams or the clippers it be worth it

28 Sep 2018 13:04:44
Nah Lebron was 3-4 years younger then and there ain’t know one close to Kyrie in that line up.

28 Sep 2018 15:41:18
It's closer than I'd like to think, but Rad is right saying LeBron was younger then. None of them are to Irving's level, but Butler is close. The big issue to me is who in the Lakers group is on par with Love? Ingram has potential, but Love is still really good, no matter how much they made him the scapegoat in Cleveland. McGee and Rondo might be better than Smith and Thompson, but I don't think they are. It's pretty even there. So all in all, the Cavs group is better than the Lakers. but not by a landslide.

28 Sep 2018 16:18:45
also, the wolves want more than just kuzma and a likely super late 1st.

28 Sep 2018 16:58:08
Lakers will have to give up Ingram if they want Butler. Not going to happen. They would rather try to poach him next summer.

28 Sep 2018 17:45:49
This offer better then most the ones I seen online, IT'S why Butler still there cause teams not giving up nothing good to get him. This better then the one posted above and below. You get a young player who was first rookie team on a great contract. a good player with experience who can shooot. Plus a mystery pick between 22-28 in a decent draft.

28 Sep 2018 17:55:05
Soxfan I think differently because love wasnt really a good fit or didn't play good enough defense. green used to lock love down he not doing that to James playing pf and Butler at sf with Ingram at the two. Love was there third option but at times Smith was really especially 2016.

28 Sep 2018 20:33:00
It's difficult to trade with the Lakers or Celtics. They make inferior offers and hope someone is dumb enough to bite. If they lose out on a trade they tamper with the player's contract and then try to steal him in free agency.

27 Sep 2018 01:51:36
Lakers-sixers trade

Sixers get brandon ingrams
Lakers gets dario saric and miami 1st 2021

I knew its not believable but who says no?

27 Sep 2018 04:55:35
Lakers say no, Ingram has the potential to be a top 20 player while I think Saric won't get much better than he is now.

27 Sep 2018 05:57:02
Covington and keep the pick.

27 Sep 2018 17:21:41
covington and philly’s own 20+21.

27 Sep 2018 01:18:39
Rockets try to get Butler:

Wolves send: Butler, Dieng, Jones
Receive: Gordon, Tucker, Nene, '19 &'21 1st (Rockets)
Stay competitive and get 2 future firsts

Kings send: McLemore
Receive: Dieng (Stretch & Waive), Qi, Bucks 1st (Via Suns), '20 2nd
Get a couple of picks and a prospect for a Dieng dump

Suns send: Bucks 1st
Receive: Jones, '19 2nd
Get their PG who can start

Rockets send: Gordon, Tucker, Nene, Qi, '19 & '20 2nd, '19 & '21 1st
Receive: Butler, McLemore

PG: CP3, Knight
SG: Harden, McLemore
SF: Butler, Green
PF: Melo, Ennis
C: Capela, Chriss

On a side note, after Dieng is presumably waived, I'd like to see him sign for the Lakers

27 Sep 2018 02:14:21
I'm guessing you don't care for the Lakers much if you want them to sign Dieng to a minimum contract that no other team would likely give him because they could be developing a young player in that slot.

27 Sep 2018 05:00:09
@Btec McGee is best used as a spark plug off the bench. Wagner is at least a year off from handling opposition Cs on D. Zubac is yet to show he should be a rotation big. I think for a non-guaranteed vet min Dieng could start for them before they move to their version of the "death lineup"

27 Sep 2018 11:51:28
I comprehend that. Dieng puts up Nene #'s. Are you really going to sign nearly age 30 Dieng when you could have a younger player developing? Dieng doesn't have a lot of mystery to his future potential. I doubt anyone gives him more than a 1 year guaranteed vet minimum, if anyone even picks him up. Especially the Lakers, who have wagner, McGee, zubac all younger, better, cheaper already.

22 Sep 2018 23:31:03
Lakers Trade Brandon Ingram Lonzo Ball Josh Hart Kyle Kuzma 2019 first round pick unprotected 2020 first round pick lottery protected

Pelicans Trade Anthony Davis

In Free Agency

Lakers going after Klay Thompson Kemba Walker Kawhi Leonard Kevin Durant

For Two Max Players

23 Sep 2018 02:28:03
Can't trade back to back 1sts.

23 Sep 2018 02:35:22
Hahahahaha why don't you give them Irving, Butler and KAT, while your at it. OMG.

19 Sep 2018 23:50:15
Could lightning strike twice for the Thunder? They went and grabbed George a little over a year ago when he was "bound" for the Lakers. He was convinced after one season to stay long term. Why not try again with Butler?

Okc gets Jimmy Butler, JaMychal Green
***All in. This bumps their tax bill but it'll be worth it when they beat the Warriors in the western conference finals and make a run at a title.

Grizz get Alex Abrines
***Grizz grab a shooter and a teammate of Gasol from the Spain national team

TWolves get Andre Roberson, Patrick Patterson, Terrance Ferguson, 1st rounder
***I don't think that the Wolves want to send Jimmy to his preferred teams. Those teams may also not want to forfeit talent and try their hand at adding him in FA. Enter the Thunder. They get a first, a defensive ace, a young asset, and a floor spacing 4.


20 Sep 2018 03:43:11
The T-Wolves will not trade Butler to a division rival.

20 Sep 2018 16:37:21
No it could not.

17 Sep 2018 23:51:06

13 Sep 2018 23:10:05
Lakers Trade Lonzo Ball Josh Hart 2019 first round pick

Hornets Trade Kemba Walker

14 Sep 2018 08:13:55
That's to much for a player that's going to be a free agent next year.

14 Sep 2018 13:44:50
Not really too much. Hart is abackup, ball is too.

14 Sep 2018 16:01:03
How is that too much? The first is one of the last 5 picks in the round. Hart is a throw in. And Ball is a decent prospect. This is about right for Walker, an all star.

08 Sep 2018 19:29:40
Lakers Trade Lonzo Ball JaVale McGee

Suns Trade Josh Jackson Tyson Chandler

Suns already has 3 lockdown Defender Small Forwards

Lakers can take down Warriors by adding one Lockdown Defender

08 Sep 2018 23:11:39
Why do suns do it?

09 Sep 2018 14:14:02
Lol you think Joshua Jackson is the key to beating the warriors? Oooook.

31 Aug 2018 23:33:48
Suns get Clarkson and korver they trade Chandler expiring for an extra year of Clarkson and korver.

Cavs get Deng and Lakers 2019 and 2021 unprotected. Cavs have no need for Clarkson and korver so instead paying them for two years they pay deng. They gain 2 picks and veteran leadership, Deng can play but not too his contract. He just got into with management and they benched him not cause he can't play he wants to. So they get two picks between 18 -22.

Lakers get Chandler. They get CAp with the risk losing there picks so they can't really make trades unless give up youth. So there next move has to be there best move

31 Aug 2018 05:56:47
Assuming the Grizzlies tank this year .
Deng , Ingram , Zubac, 2019 1st , 2020nd

31 Aug 2018 15:18:07
Grizz aren't tanking.

31 Aug 2018 16:16:47
Like Shiller said the Grizzlies aren’t tanking. The owner things that they can win 50 games, they added win now pieces, and it didn’t sound like they even shopped Gasol or Conley.

30 Aug 2018 22:20:10
Heat receive: L. Deng, M. Wagner, I. Zubac, J. Hart, future 1st Round pick, future 2nd Round Pick

Lakers receive: H. Whiteside, R. McGruder

01 Sep 2018 03:47:21
im saying no to any whiteside trade for LA unless they could somehow force him to turn down his po next summer.
