Lakers buyout deng and save money for off season

then raptors use what they have to s8gn him as a stretch forward. who's going to play small minutes but can be a big help in playoffs .

Agree1 Disagree17

11 Feb 2018 01:55:38
The Lakers started the season trying to make the playoffs and have no reason to intentionally tank. If Deng had anything left, he would have played.

11 Feb 2018 00:07:39
raptors buyouts

raptors look to get a buyout

if Vince becomes a free agent sign Vince

but a better option would be illya for dunley or fry raptors need a stretch four to help in playoffs.

here's an off season move for an all in win now and bring in James

Lakers and hornets

Lakers get walker and Howard

hornets get Lopez, Ball and Randle first round pick.

Lakers then sign James and another free agent to round out the roster.



hornets restart with ball and Randle.

not sure that lakers lineup can even crack top 3 in the west. the bench would be horrid. even one season of howard’s salary is far from worth getting kemba (also expiring)
and magic is not trading his golden goose period.

10 Feb 2018 18:07:26
End of season trade

Lakers get - Jordan (opts in)

Clippers get - Randle (s&t) and Zubac

Lakers let Lopez Thomas and Kcp walk
Resign Brewer
Draft Brandon McCoy

Resign Jordan
Trade Ingram and Deng for Winslow and Richardson
Sign Kawhi and Thompson


Agree1 Disagree22

10 Feb 2018 22:20:37
I like this for the Clippers, but i'm not sure Jordan would op't in.

11 Feb 2018 06:57:41
i like one year of dj in la, but i'm not resigning him. too many better options summer 19, i'd prioritize kawhi, butler, kemba (assuming they don't sign extensions before then)
also possible lebron opts-in to his PO, this f. a. 2019
and its basically impossible to to sign 3 max guys, that would require 90% available cap. lonzo would be about the other 10 and u would have to fill the other 8 roster spots via exceptions.

10 Feb 2018 13:34:28
Noah for Deng.

Agree4 Disagree20

10 Feb 2018 15:09:45
Fresh start for youngsters.

10 Feb 2018 16:16:35
Why? Why bother?

10 Feb 2018 17:12:34
I guess I can see it for New York since they've been having problems with Noah, but I don't see why the Lakers would do it.

10 Feb 2018 17:25:24
Noah is a lot better then Zaza in similar system. And California is warm, good for body and soul, he could give good 20 minuts. Much money for that minuts but they are fucckin rich in LA.

11 Feb 2018 06:59:26
maybe 2014 dpoy, all-first team joakim is still in there somewhere. might come out in LA.

10 Feb 2018 12:09:09
Lakers offseason moves

Resign Cadwell-Pope 1year 20M
Resign Randle 1 year 17M

C: O'Quin/Zubac
PF: Kuzma/Randle

LA 2019
Pursue K Thompson and K Leonard

Agree5 Disagree23

10 Feb 2018 13:05:25
Why would you give up two firsts for O'Quinn and Baker?

10 Feb 2018 15:38:55
Gasupo bitter Cavs fan trying to take a shot at Lakers, bc LeBron is done with his city.

10 Feb 2018 15:39:45
Noah 2 2nd for Lebron.

10 Feb 2018 16:55:01
Why give up two firsts to unload Deng when you’re not signing significant free agents this offseason in this scenario? That doesn’t make sense.

10 Feb 2018 22:18:25
First, i'm a pacers fan, not a cavs fan.
Second, everybody Always says, it take more than one draft pick to ship Deng and his contract. Deng Has a contract for three more years, so trading him, gives them flexibility in the future.
And third, i believe LBJ go's to Houston.

10 Feb 2018 23:54:10
If the signing of Lebron/ Cousins/ George hinges on trading Deng, I would think that the trade makes sense. If it takes two firsts to unload him and there’s those signings lined up already, I would be on board if I’m the lakers. The thing that doesn’t make sense to me is that they don’t sign anyone with that money. The longer they hold onto Deng, the less it takes to offload him. Unloading him in the summer of 2019 with only one year left is pretty easy any maybe only costs second rounders.

11 Feb 2018 01:25:01
I have hard time seeing HOU dumping Anderson, and signing Paul, and figuring out how to keep Ariza, or don't, and sign James, and sign Capela. Deng only has a deal for 2 more seasons, and the rest of this one. Deng, if it's true, and he does want to play still, could agree to an extension, which would restructure his deal out to 5 seasons, and pay him less per year. Maybe the MIN, or DAL would then bite. It would be about 7 mil a season then if extension, and restructuring were to happen. Throw in Randle, or a pick, and it's palatable. Everyone has been wrong on here about pick values. Including me. Hoods value as well.

11 Feb 2018 07:12:59
@jorgawood i think they would have to find a deal where someone takes anderson and gordon (i know, tough, 34 mil in salary. lebron s+t? )
cp and lebron take paycuts (split about 50 mil), float capela cap hold (only like 6 mil) and sign him on bird after lebron

in terms of this lakers scenario, i like everything except giving IT 30 mil. he is worth about 15 (he will be lonzo’s backup) and you can't be a 5-9 sg.

10 Feb 2018 16:02:47
Gasupo is an Indy fan. He says that quite often.

10 Feb 2018 01:06:28
4 team piston, laker, OKC, Orlando

Detroit gets Thomas, L.Deng, Randal, Speights

Lakers get Biyombo, Hezonja

Thunder get Abrines, Jackson, Luer, 1st okc

Thunder get Galloway, Afflalo

Agree1 Disagree2

10 Feb 2018 14:38:41
That looks more like a three team rebuild.

10 Feb 2018 00:49:53
offseason trade

heat : wall, oubre, jackson
pistons : olynyk,gortat, meeks
wizards : dragic, drummond, winslow, wizards 1st round pick

Agree1 Disagree2

10 Feb 2018 02:57:32
wizards 1st round pick to pistons*.

10 Feb 2018 07:23:44
Niko your killing the pistons.

10 Feb 2018 11:15:49
You can do this trade without the Heat.

Was: Drummond+ 1rnd pick Detroit+ Jackson

Det: Mahinmi+ J Wall.

11 Feb 2018 07:15:12
wall can't be traded until october i believe bc he signed the supermax.

09 Feb 2018 22:03:54
Cavs waive zizic

Sign Perkins belineli and joe Johnson (if bought out)

Hill Clarkson Calderon
Smith Hood belineli
James korver Johnson
Love green osman
Thompson nance Perkins

Agree3 Disagree3

09 Feb 2018 23:20:08
no man ante zize need playing time.

09 Feb 2018 23:51:11
Why would they waive Zizic? He is the only young prospect with Osman and Nance on the roster, when James leaves they will have a bunch of bad contracts and Brooklyn pick to go through rebuild. Bad move IMO.

10 Feb 2018 15:25:15
Ante Zizic maybe another hidden gem like Cedi Osman was.

10 Feb 2018 20:25:53
Just don't sign him for a 4 year 10 mil a season deal like POR did with Myers Leonard. Projects earn project pay.

09 Feb 2018 18:40:55
2018 Offseason Plan (Lakers)

Step One
Magic Receive-Luol Deng, 2018 Cavs first round unprotected pick, 2020 Lakers first round unprotected pick

Lakers Receive-Wesley Iwundu

Step two
Lakers extend Julius Randle and sign Isaiah Thomas+Avery Bradley in order to compete

Step 3
Have assets to move at the 2019 deadline and still save a load of money to spend on 2019 free agents. Klay will be available and want a max deal which the Warriors won't be able to afford. Jimmy Butler will also be there but that's unrealistic. Lebron James will likely only sign a 1 year tenure to the Rockets or excursive his player option to return to the Cavs. All in all, the Lakers will have money to sign a superstar weather they want to in 2018 or 2019. Personally I think that the free agent class will be stronger in 2019 compared to the 2018 class.

Agree3 Disagree4

09 Feb 2018 19:42:45
Thomas with no defense why would Lakers sign him to a contract.

09 Feb 2018 19:45:20
I think the 2018 is stronger with James George Durant cousins Paul and possibly Jordan. But 2019 is younger and better to build with Lakers. Leonard and Klay would be great and trade Ingram for a center. Plus they could keep Deng for one more year and can easily trade in 2019 with Ingram and a couple picks for whiteside.

09 Feb 2018 19:47:16
Orlando takes that deal in less than a heartbeat.

11 Feb 2018 04:20:00
Dallas would take send for two first round picks.

11 Feb 2018 07:23:41
@true99 i'd keep ingram regardless of if u can get lebron, pg, kawhi, butler. the way the league is moving, wings are invaluable and u can do just fine without a traditional big. and ingram will be an all star. come 2019-20 whiteside and dj (both 30+) won't give u close to the same value as him.

09 Feb 2018 19:28:53
the magic have too many highly paid players with long contracts as it is. No way they'd accept another for what could be 2 very low firsts.
