Lakers have abt 23 mil in cap left. I say use it all for starting guard and 6th man. Go over the cap with vet min deals and MLE.

Danny Green 2yr 20mil
Patrick Beverley 2yr 12mil
Wes Matthews 1yr 7mil

Rajon Rondo MLE

Jeff Green vet min
Regis Bullock vet min
Ed Davis vet min


19 Jun 2019 02:23:34
Cant sign over cap only resign. No davis ( ed)

19 Jun 2019 03:14:35
If they got him on a min deal, they can sign Davis. You can always sign players to min deals.

18 Jun 2019 14:36:04

18 Jun 2019 14:56:23
Bojon gets more than that.

18 Jun 2019 16:12:21
Bojan is the Pacers no. 2 option (and going nowhere) . For the Lakers he would be coming off the bench behind LeBron. Not happening. He wants to start.

18 Jun 2019 18:46:55
Yes add rose. Let the lakers have 3 older injured guys. Do it do it.

18 Jun 2019 00:53:21
Lakers sign cousins carter green Ariza Melo
Rivers Felton

Resign rondo Stephenson McGee chandler

Rondo rivers Felton
Green ariza Stephenson
James Melo carter
Davis Kuzma Wagner
Cousins McGee chandler

18 Jun 2019 03:58:31
They have 25 million in cap space. Explain how that works? Btw cap holds on Stephenson and McGee get waived so they can't go over cap resigning them.

17 Jun 2019 20:38:59
The Lakers ...

Since probably Irving will really sign in Brooklyn to have is own team and to try a frist ring with the young core Lakers may target Walker as PG and it would may a lot of sense.

So Dallas goes young and offer Russell a max, maybe Brooklyn wants a trade exception in a sign & trade.

So Mavs go young in a crazy future:

1: Draft Day
1.1 Since Boston want to exchange some of their 1st picks:
- Boston: Jackson, future 1st
- Dallas: #20

1.2 Cleveland rebuilds:
- Cleveland: Lee (release), #37
- Dallas: J.R. (release him)

1.3 Detroit is stack in CAP and need scoring on the backcourt to allow Jackson, Griffin to win:
- Detroit: Powell and a C at #20, Hardaway (& young wing with their #15)
- Dallas: Drummond, Thomas

I think it is a win - win, Mavs get a perfect partner for Porzee and Detoit 2 wings and 2 centers.

2: Free agency:
2.1 Sign (and trade ?)
- Brooklyn: 14m trade exception
- Dallas: S&T Russell 5y max
2.2 Sign Oubre and overpay him to lure him away from Suns.
- Dallas: Oubre Jr. (2+1y 60m)

Drummond, Holmes
Porzee, Maxi
Oubre, FinneyS
Doncic, Thomas
Russell, Brunson

17 Jun 2019 20:46:33
I would go after Danny Green instead of Oubre to had some defense on the wing plus he’ll be cheaper


17 Jun 2019 21:19:48
Everything being reported has the Cavs getting a 1st outs of jr and in general a 2nd round pick doesn’t cost 6 million.

17 Jun 2019 22:38:16
Small wrinkle. Teams have to use all their cap space before they can use any trade exceptions. So things would have to be reordered in order to get Dlo on a 5 year S&T.

17 Jun 2019 23:16:43
Cuban should be happy because LA is screwed right?

17 Jun 2019 23:35:03
Oubre and Russell will both be in Phx next season. Dallas has got a decent free agent to sign with them in 20 years.

17 Jun 2019 16:09:16
Predicting Lakers Free Agency
After the trade is completed it's reported that they'll have $27 mil in cap plus there MLE . So they need a starting PG and C.

Sign Rondo 1yr vet min
Sign Brogdon 4yrs 60mil
Sign B Lopez 3yrs 24mil
Sign Darren Colison 1yr vet min
Sign Mcgee 1yr vet min
Sign Marcus Morris 1yr MLE
Sign Ellington 1yr 5mil

Davis / Kuzma / Wagner
Lopez / Mcgee

You build a solid team with reliable depth and you're set to compete .

17 Jun 2019 17:03:25
Milwaukee will match the offer for Brogdon and Kings will probably be offering Lopez more than $8 mil/ year. Also wouldn't be surprised in Collison gets more than vet min from Indy/ Phoenix/ Orlando.

17 Jun 2019 18:06:16
I think orlando will not get collison.

17 Jun 2019 18:16:26
Milwaukee will match not only Brogdon, But also Lopez! Plus, Middleton just bought a house in the Milwaukee suburbs. Looks like the band is going to be staying together for a while.

17 Jun 2019 18:46:38
The Bucks can't "match" Lopez. They can offer the same, but Brogdon has no choice in where to go like Lopez does.

17 Jun 2019 22:40:55
Torque, Lopez is not a RFA. So they can not technically "match".

17 Jun 2019 03:26:09
Lakers 2019

Cousins 1y 10m

Green 2y 15m

Sign a cheap PG that can shoot and sign a backup SF

Resign rondo mcgee

Green Bonga
Davis Kuzma
Cousins McGee Wagner

17 Jun 2019 06:37:55
Forgot about lance stevenson.

16 Jun 2019 22:02:21
Lakers sign Irving Reddick cousins carter green Melo Felton

Resign rondo Stephenson McGee chandler

Irving rondo Felton
Reddick Stephenson carter
James Anthony green
Davis Kuzma Wagner
Cousins McGee chandler.

16 Jun 2019 22:24:43
That got 37 million so they all take 7 or 8 a year?

16 Jun 2019 23:04:23
Irving, Cousins and Reddick are not going to take pay cuts. The rest, you can get at vet min.

16 Jun 2019 23:42:27
No can do on the resigns. Bird rights waived for max cap space. can't exceed salary cap unless using MLE and BLE or vet mins. Good luck with that.

17 Jun 2019 03:27:06
Lakers don’t have full max money regardless of how the Davis Trade shakes out (best case they’re $200K) short. You may get Kyrie to take that, but there is no way you’re getting Reddick and Cousins to take minimum deals.

Lakers, like the Knicks had they acquired AD, didn’t have enough assets to make the deal without leaving themselves dangerously thin. Guys like Cousins and Reddick are not going to do them the favour of combatting that.

16 Jun 2019 21:55:24
Lakers sign Irving or Walker, Vince carter, Kenneth faried, Danny green, Jeff green

Resign rondo Stephenson McGee chandler KCP

Irving rondo
Green KCP Stephenson
James green carter
Kuzma faried Wagner
Davis McGee chandler.

16 Jun 2019 22:25:13
Do you understand the salary cap?

16 Jun 2019 23:43:19
No he appatently does not.

17 Jun 2019 01:35:34
Still couldn't beat GS when healthy.

16 Jun 2019 16:04:47
Lakers vet min free agent targets if they get Kemba

Derrick Rose PG
Wesley Matthews SG
Wayne Ellington SG
Jeff Green F
Robin Lopez C


16 Jun 2019 18:30:49
Lakers should sign cousins 1y 10m and let Davis play pf.

16 Jun 2019 18:41:08
Going to have to throw MLE at Matthews and hope BLE is enough for R. Lopez (doubt) .

16 Jun 2019 23:36:12
Starting 2 guard and all people that will sign for 5-10 mill a year. for the vets minimum? You’re nuts.

16 Jun 2019 11:21:43
lf warriors won't compete next year


GSW- Solomon Hill, Josh Hart, one of Lakers pick.
NOP- Andre İguadala, second round pick.

Pelicans can use iggy as a mentor for young player.

Second trade

Gsw- Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie

Nets- Draymond Green and first round pick Gsw 2020 and a second

16 Jun 2019 11:57:00
why should Pelicans trade Hart and a 1st rounder for someone who is going to retire after next season?

16 Jun 2019 12:05:26
1 round for dumping hill. İguadala can help pelicans. He is good player and good defender. He is the definicion of profecional basketball player.

16 Jun 2019 12:24:02
Hill is on an expiring. Why would they need to dump him?

16 Jun 2019 13:53:48
Be easier to sign Vince Carter as mentor.

16 Jun 2019 06:40:24
Lakers 2019

Cousins 1y 10m

Danny green 2y 15m

Any cheap pg that can shoot the 3 and defend

Point guard
Green Bonga
Davis Kuzma
Cousins mcgee

16 Jun 2019 12:27:02
Cousins was a bad fit with Davis pre injury.

16 Jun 2019 00:55:49
Lakers get AD for Ball, Ingram, Hart and 3 first rounders.

That 2023 might be interesting as well as the #4. Garland and holiday will make sn intetesting back court.

16 Jun 2019 02:39:30
Hope they flip ball for another pick.

16 Jun 2019 02:51:45
There are apparently pick swaps involved too.

16 Jun 2019 03:25:44
Rumors are that New Orleans will probably trade the 4th pick for someone. We will see the fallout.

16 Jun 2019 04:44:14
What if lakers get walker butler Irving or klaw. Then how will that 2023 pick look. Plus I think lbj play beyond 2023 at a high level.

16 Jun 2019 10:15:07
Lbj could hurt serious injured next year and AD seems to miss 20 games a year.

16 Jun 2019 15:47:41
Don't get too excited about signing a free agent. Kemba still stays in Charlotte. Kyrie already has a new home in South Orange, New Jersey. Kawhi is between Toronto and the Clippers. Durant and Thompson will stay with Warriors. Vucevic will stay with Orlando. Philadelphia with Harris and Butler, along with Embiid and Simmons are still better than the Lakers. Cousins?

16 Jun 2019 00:52:28
I think what happen will be:

Leonard may stay in Toronto or go to the Clippers?

Probably New York will trade:

- NY: Davis
- NO: BARRETT, Smith, Know, Robinson

NY signs Irving and Durant.

If not Irving and Durant will go to Brooklyn and AD may end up at Lakers somehow.

New Orleans will have a amazing young core in Robinson, Zion, (Randle maybe), Knox, Johnson, Barrett, Smith and Holiday or a return of him (maybe Suns pic to take White PG ?)

Since the Lakers will sign Butler and Cousins.

So the Mavs should target signs or trade:

Drummond or Valenciunas (Randle?)
Leonard, Middleton, Brogdon, Amuni or Lamb
Walker, Russell or Rubio.

A trade proposal will follow up!

16 Jun 2019 02:04:16
Well, that didn't take long to be wrong.

16 Jun 2019 03:26:22
AD is already a Laker.

16 Jun 2019 04:45:24
Ad to lakers is official.

16 Jun 2019 01:30:57
Finished lakers off-season.

Lakers sign kyrie to max 30m first year, shooters and defenders with mle, vets min.


16 Jun 2019 02:41:16
What cap space after signing kyrie?

16 Jun 2019 03:27:06
Lakers want Kemba Walker not Irving.

16 Jun 2019 04:46:59
Use mle on Beverly.

15 Jun 2019 23:41:47
Trade alert!

Lakers - AD
Pels - Ingram Hart Ball 4th and 2 future picks

- Lakers keep Kuzma and will look for guards in free agency

- Pels add 3 young talent plus another top 5 pick

16 Jun 2019 00:04:40
Good for the Pelicans! They still have Jrue who I’m guessing may be available now though.

16 Jun 2019 00:40:52
Sign Jimmy Butler and resign Rondo?


Wondering how much "load maintenance" will happen next season.

Also, Knicks hopes are dwindling quickly.

16 Jun 2019 00:54:08
Go lakers.

16 Jun 2019 01:12:46
Hope they flip ball for a pick.

16 Jun 2019 02:43:01
Lakers have no bench or shooting. If they sign kyrie instead of butler their defense is weaker. Nuggets and other west teams are happy today.

16 Jun 2019 02:53:30
They got pick swaps too.

16 Jun 2019 04:48:23
I take Beverly or collison over rondo.

15 Jun 2019 05:57:50
Lakers change identity.

Lakers/ Anthony Davis

Pels Brandon Ingram, kyle kuzma, Josh Hart, salary filler, 4th overall

Lakers sign: Jimmy Butler, Patrick Beverley, vets


14 Jun 2019 14:25:45
Lakers - Pelicans - Thunder

Lakers gets:

Pelicans gets:
21st pick (Thunder)

Thunder gets:
4th pick (Lakers)

14 Jun 2019 16:08:58
So the Pelicans give up the 4th pick and take on 17 million in the trade to get another guys that doesn’t fit next to Zion and locks them into having the worse shooting team in the league. Adams is not worth it.

14 Jun 2019 16:56:01
I'd probably rather have Moore than Adams straight up. Moore is an elite shooter.

14 Jun 2019 18:06:29
Adams + #21 + taking on Moore's salary = #4 pick?

Appears we are overvaluing Adams worth to non-OKC teams.

14 Jun 2019 10:47:32

OKC gets Holiday, LAL 2020 1st rd pick top 20 protected

LAL gets Davis, Patterson

NOP gets Adams, Ball, Ingram, Schroder, 4th pick, 21st pick.

14 Jun 2019 12:49:48
Return for Holiday isn't enough. He's one of the best defenders in the league, can create for himself and others. I think you can get way more for him. He's the perfect co-star like Horford or Love in his best days.

14 Jun 2019 12:57:09
OKC being in this just makes it worse for the two other teams.

14 Jun 2019 12:59:30
Adams + Patterson + Shroeder + #21 = Jrue Holiday? Hmmmmm.

13 Jun 2019 22:43:29
Lakers Get: Anthony Davis

Bulls Get: Pick #4, Solomomn Hill

Pelicans Get: Zach Lavine, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, LA 2020 1st Rd, 2021 LA 1st Rd

LA gets there guy

Bulls grab Garland at 4 and still have pick #7 to add another piece

Pelicans get 3 young starters and multiple picks (I understand they won't be all that high)

13 Jun 2019 23:54:26
Use lube on the pelicans. Geez.

14 Jun 2019 00:47:55
So pels get 2 late first rounds a broken pg and guy with clots? Btw can't trade firsts back to back years.

14 Jun 2019 01:40:20
Lakers can't trade consecutive year first round picks. It would have to be #4, 2021 and 2023.

Also, you think Lavine + taking S. Hill's expiring salary = #4 pick? Please refresh my memory. What did Chicago give up to get Lavine?

13 Jun 2019 21:33:26
Okc complete rebuild

Lakers - PG
Thunder - Ingram Hart Wagner 4th

Heat - Westbrook
Thunder - Dragic Johnson 13th

Hornets - Adams
Thunder - Batum Monk 36

Jazz - Schroder
Thunder - Exum 23

Thunder draft
4 - Garland
13 - Bol Bol
21 - Fernando
23 - Claxton
36 - Schofield

Bol Bol/Fernando/Wagner
