Lakers - Pacers - Thunder

Lakers gets:

Pacers gets:
21st pick (Thunder)
Future 2nd (Lakers)
Future 2nd (Lakers)

Thunder gets:
27th pick (Celtics via Lakers)
28th pick (Rockets via Lakers)

Lakers gets George as a star and have his bird rights next year.

Pacers gets a better value by getting the Thunder pick and two 2nds than the 27th and 28th Lakers offered earlier.

Thunder move back in the draft and gets some cap relief by moving Singler.

21 Jun 2017 22:53:25
Stop it. Pay for the price or wait bbq the yr.

21 Jun 2017 20:36:28
Ed Davis + this year's #20- Lakers

Brook Lopez - Blazers.

21 Jun 2017 22:45:51
You do realize the Blazers are way over the cap, and Lopez makes more than Davis.

21 Jun 2017 23:02:55
The blazers are way over the cap, and they trade 6 million away, and get 22 million back. Can't happen. This only works if you include crabbe as well.

Maybe crabbe, Davis, 20, and 26 for Lopez.

21 Jun 2017 23:14:30
why would the blazers want Lopez? Unless they are not settled with Jusef. even then Portland's two biggest on court needs are defense and rebounding. Lopez is center who can score but doesn't rebound. Not part of a winning recipe for Portland.

21 Jun 2017 17:48:09
The Lakers get Wade and Butler

The Bulls get Deng, Clarkson, Randle, the 2, 27, and 28

21 Jun 2017 18:45:15
I wouldn't want to take on Wade unless he would be willing to take a big discount next year to make space for LBJ.

21 Jun 2017 18:52:46
TriangleO, the idea was to have a recruiter for Lebron. It's not a forgone conclusion that Lebron is going to LA. No matter the chatter until LA shows they can put together a championship caliber team, I highly doubt Lebron seriously considers going their. Wade could help and at worse he's an expiring.

21 Jun 2017 21:18:37
Rkenne, I'm not saying I truly believe LBJ is going to the Lakers next offseason, I'm just saying that it's pointless to bring Wade over if he expects a salary above an exception level next year. They would not be able to keep him anyways if LBJ does in fact want to come, and Wade won't take a minimum. e.

21 Jun 2017 21:29:53
why would the lakers trade the 2 pick. there going to take lonzo or fox. if they trade it there was no point of trading diangelo russell.

21 Jun 2017 21:41:54
That's a lot of picks for Butler and wades contract.

21 Jun 2017 17:26:43
LA Lakers crazy Offseason

•Trade: Lakers-Pacers-Suns-Jazz

-LAKERS get Paul George, #4 pick (via PHO), #52 pick (via PHO), and a 2018 2nd (via IND)
-PACERS get Dante Exum, Jared Dudley, #27 and #28 picks (via LAL), and Miami 2018 1st (via PHO)
-SUNS get #2 pick (via LAL), Luol Deng, and Derrick Favors
-JAZZ get Eric Bledsoe

•Trade: Lakers-Celtics-Knicks

-LAKERS get Avery Bradley
-CELTICS get Kristaps Porzingis
-KNICKS get Julius Randle, #3 pick, Boston 2018 1st, Lakers 2018 1st (or Kings 2019 1st via BOS), and a 2019 2nd (via BOS)

•Draft De'Aaron Fox

•Free Agency:
-Re-sign Nick Young 1yr 13m
-Sign Terrence Jones 1yr 5m

PG: Fox, Clarkson, Nwaba
SG: Bradley, Young
SF: George, Ingram, Brewer
PF: Nance, Jones
C: Lopez, Zubac, Black

Then they still should have cap room for another all star in 2018.

21 Jun 2017 20:18:34
Don't think that the Lakers will be able to get back the #4 pick along with George while giving up the #2 and off loading Deng.

21 Jun 2017 22:30:56
Seems very one sided towards the Lakers for both trades. The first one you get George by and the number 4 pick by giving up your current 3 1st round picks. And in the second one you get Bradley but only give up Randell and Boston looses all of the assets that they have built up over the years, if the Lakers through in some of their own picks I would be less suspect of the trade but I would still rather have Bradley, now especially since we won't be draft in Fultz.

21 Jun 2017 06:30:30

PG13 and Young


Deng, Brewer, Randle, #2 pick

Pacers go full tank.
Yes the Lakers give up Ball but next year they will have almost 0 cap responsibilities so they can add LBJ and a third all-star. Also this deal will allow the lakers to go after Milsap now.

21 Jun 2017 07:15:38
Not a fan of the rushed way Lakers have approached things thus far. In general I think its an awful idea to give up valuable assets now to clear cap space that you speculate you will use a year from now. A lot can happen in a year, I think Lakers would've been better off sitting tight and moving Deng and Mozgov next offseason when they'd be easier to move with 1 less year on their contract and Lakers would have a better sense of which FA they could realistically get/ are interested.

Additionally, I think a trade for George should've been the first domino to fall if any. This is an awful lot to give up for the Lakers but I think they've showed their hand a little early with the Nets trade and the price for George probably has gone up. If they want to stay true to their strategy thus far they should aim for maximum cap space for next year. Thus take out Brewer (expiring contract) and Randle (also expiring but has Bird rights and low cap hold which could be valuable in a S&T allowing for them to get someone over the cap) and put in Clarkson instead and not receive Thaddeus Young (he has a player option for next year and although its relatively cheap I'd want to keep options open if I'm Lakers.

I don't like it but given the hole the Lakers have dug themselves if I had to give up #2 in a deal for George I'd do:

PG13 for Deng, Clarkson and #2.

21 Jun 2017 16:18:00
I don't see any reason to give the pacers the number two pick. Pacers are desperate now. Let George come to la naturally unless you can get him for randel and the two late firsts.

21 Jun 2017 16:56:37
If you don't give up #2 or ingram you can't include deng. After trading d-lo everyone knows they want pg now.
Worst case scenario is now that Pg gets traded anywhere else and Stay there. So you give up young talents for nothing. It's too late now to speculate. They have to go all in.
After all. The deal with the Nets was awful if pg doesn't come.

21 Jun 2017 19:36:51
Yeah, I completely disagree with the lakers fans that don't want to give up anything for George. You should be scared that he goes somewhere else (Boston, Cleveland), goes to the finals, and stays there. There absolutely should be a sense of urgency on the lakers side. And the pacers have plenty of leverage, there are at least 7-10 teams that would trade for George.

21 Jun 2017 04:31:32
Lakers 2017

Lakers Paul George

Pacers Randle or Clarkson 27th and 28th pick

21 Jun 2017 06:22:58
Lakers have already reportedly offered that. Pacers allegedly plan to make a move before the draft Thursday night so they are probably just waiting for better offers to come in. They'll probably just take the best offer they have and at the moment that is the only one public.

21 Jun 2017 06:43:09
I feel like if that's the going rate for George, I'd offer 20, 26, Crabbe and Aminu if I'm Portland. That's a better deal than what LA is offering. Even if George walks, Portland gets cap relief, and they don't give up much assets.

21 Jun 2017 07:54:06
Ya that offer is definitely beatable and Blazers don't have much to lose with that offer since they'd have to likely part with one of those picks to move Crabbe's contract anyway. I think Lakers could beef it up to Randle, Clarkson and at least one of the picks if pushed hard enough.

21 Jun 2017 00:49:06
Trades to happen soon

George and Jefferson for 27,28, Randle


#3, whatever pick they get from Sixers, Brown for Butler
Sign Hayward
IT-Bradley-Haywayd-Butler-Horford (small ball)

76ers get Porzingis and Noah
Knicks get Korkmaz, Okafor, whatever pick they keep from Celtics deal, 2018 Sixers first, and 2 2nd rounders this year


21 Jun 2017 02:49:39
The sixers could never get porzingis for that package. But Embiid, Porzingis, Simmons, Reddick, Fultz sure looks like a nice starting 5.

21 Jun 2017 03:04:48
That trade for Porzingis is a joke.

20 Jun 2017 21:50:25
HEAT summer
heat : russell, randle, mozgov
lakers : dragic,t johnson, mcroberts(waive), #14 pick
let babbitt and reed walk
sign hayward, milos teodosic, briante weber

randle/j johnson/white

20 Jun 2017 20:19:08
Pacers Deng Randle 28th pick

Lakers George

20 Jun 2017 20:35:36
Deng, DLo, 28 and a 2nd.

20 Jun 2017 20:53:35
No deal Russell stays pacers get Randle or no deal added the future 2nd round is fine remember lakers can just wait 1 year.

20 Jun 2017 21:17:17
If the price is that low another team will make a deal. No way will the Pacers do that. Randle basically pays for someone taking on Dengs contract. So that means they get the 28th for George. The Pacers have no reason to appease the Lakers or George.

20 Jun 2017 21:21:36
they have to give up russell if they want george via trade. Pacers will get other suitors and if he ends up on a team like Cleveland or Boston, they could make title run and convince him to stay long term for more titles. And Lakers know that, that's why they'll trade anything. If they're going to bank on him coming in a year, why offer anything? If they're going to offer a trade, it'll have to be a trade that's close to what other teams will offer.

20 Jun 2017 21:21:47
Indy would rather just let him walk than take that garbage deal. Deng has negative value, randle has minimal value (and will likely get overpaid next year) .

The lakers can TRY to wait, but how confident are you that he'll sign with the lakers? If he gets traded to Boston, Cleveland, or the Clippers, I don't see any way he goes to the lakers. Indy has much more leverage than laker fans like to think.

20 Jun 2017 22:06:43
Pacers will never take deng and randle as return. Next year they have to pay Randle 20+ million. With deng they pay 40. It's the worst core of the nba. Then they prefer waiting or sending pg for a second rounder to the cavs.

21 Jun 2017 00:24:42
Russell was just traded to the Nets.

20 Jun 2017 18:06:01
Knicks Rebuild

NYK- Jae Crowder, #3 pick 2017, 2018 LAL/2019 SAC pick (Bos)
BOS- Kristaps Porzingis

Boston essentially trades the 1st pick, and Jae Crowder for Porzingis. They are the favorites to sign Heyward as well. This gives them a starting 5 of Horford, Porzingis, Heyward, Bradley, Thomas. Very strong team to compete in the East. The Knicks love Josh Jackson and could select him at 3.

NYK- #14 pick
MIA- Carmelo Anthony

The Heat were able to shed Bosh's contract. Melo would bring another piece to a pretty solid core. Maybe this could lure in Lebron next year.

The Knicks would have picks 3, 8, 14 this year and most likely two top 5 picks next year (their own and LAL pick if its between 2-5). They would be able to spend money in FA and attract some bigger names with a good young core.

20 Jun 2017 18:55:34
AJ- Don't think Knicks are trading Zinger. For the Knicks to trade Porzingis within division, it will cost Boston at least Crowder AND 3 #1's. Not sure if that's what you posted.

20 Jun 2017 21:23:34
Crowder and two top 5 picks seems like fair value for porzingis. I like this deal for both sides.

20 Jun 2017 17:48:57
Knicks trade Zinger and 8th pick
To Lakers for Russell,Randle and 2nd pick

20 Jun 2017 22:53:26
Who is this Lakers poser.

20 Jun 2017 17:39:22
Knicks Lopez 2nd pick Randle

Nets Noah Deng 8th pick 28th pick

Lakers Porzingis

20 Jun 2017 19:44:48
Only LAL like this.

20 Jun 2017 17:33:36
Knicks Russell or 2nd pick Randle Mozgof

Lakers Porzingis

Knicks can go full rebuild without giving up melo choose between Russell or 2nd pick and get Randle and take mosgof

20 Jun 2017 17:36:57
That's terrible for the Knicks.

20 Jun 2017 19:52:59
Why would they want Noah AND Mozgof for 3 more years at 34million a year.

20 Jun 2017 20:29:19
Well they can trade Noah 8th pick to nets.

20 Jun 2017 15:52:01
Min - Russell, Matthews
Dallas - Rubio, #7
Lakers - #9, Tyus Jones

20 Jun 2017 16:23:26
I think Minnesota only does this if Isaac is gone at #7. I he's there, they'll take him as a good fit alongside Wiggins and KAT.

20 Jun 2017 19:43:59
Completely agree.

20 Jun 2017 15:50:00
Lakers 2018

Sign Paul George 4y Max

Nets: Mozgof Deng Russell 28th pick

Lakers: Lopez 4y Max


20 Jun 2017 16:30:28
You have the most one sided lakers trades there will ever be. Don't care for the nets but they won't take the two worst contracts in the league and give you their best player lol.

20 Jun 2017 15:09:53

Pacers: Russell, #28 pick, 2018 2nd (via DEN)
Lakers: George, #4
Suns: #2, Deng, 2019 Pacers 2nd

Pacers draft Terrance Ferguson or Donovan Mitchell at 18, Jordan Bell at 28, Frank Mason at 47.

Pacers begin rebuild and hope to land a top pick in 2018 draft to get Micheal Porter or another top prospect.

posted this earlier just fixed it and read that suns are interested as third team.

20 Jun 2017 15:38:58
Not bad, Lakers could then get Fox at 4.

20 Jun 2017 16:56:35
Do you really believe the suns pay 50 million for the difference between Ball and Fox?
I don't!

20 Jun 2017 15:04:10
Knicks trade
8th pick (LA)
Lakers trade
D'Angelo Russell (NY) 28th (POR)
Portland trades
15 (NY) Mo Harkless (NY)
Portland dumps cap
LA gets top 12 pick
NY gets better prospects.

20 Jun 2017 15:24:52
Knicks also want to get another 1st pick, why would they trade theirs? Plus Portland isn't necessarily interested in "dumping" Harkless for a 4th 1st round pick.

20 Jun 2017 17:20:08
They would trade theirs because they're getting two good young players back in return for moving back 7 spots. They'll be getting the PG they want in Russell, while bringing in a scoring SF and will still be able to draft a player at 15. They could possibly use that on Kennard or one of the many big men who will be available around then. Or they could decide to trade back, or use it to get rid of Noah.

20 Jun 2017 04:10:07

Pacers: Russell, #28 pick, 2019 1st, 2018 2nd (via DEN)
Lakers: George

Pacers draft Terrance Ferguson or Donovan Mitchell at 18, Jordan Bell at 28, Frank Mason at 47.

Pacers begin rebuild and hope to land a top pick in 2018 draft to get Micheal Porter or another top prospect.


20 Jun 2017 05:37:22
Not bad, but they can't trade the 2019 pick.

20 Jun 2017 02:40:46

Bulls : Bledsoe , #4 pick & Clarkson
draft J.Tatum


Lakers : Butler & #16
draft D.Mitchell


Suns : #2 , #28 & Deng
draft J.Jackson


20 Jun 2017 00:52:40

Lakers get: picks #5 and #10
Kings get: Pick #2

Kings VERY high on J.Jackson. Take him at #2.

Lakers pick Ball or fox with #5, whoever falls.


Lakers get:George
Pacers get: #10, Russell.

Pacers get #10 pick in this years draft, a young guard with potential.
Lakers get there guy in George.

Plus, as a sixer fan, this should put the lakers in that 8-10 range next year, with a lot of kids in ingram, ball or fox, and whoever they pick at #28. Which means we keep there pick next year and boston gets kings 2019 #1(which pleasantly is protected for the top overall pick).
