What about offering the #2 & 2th pick and Julius Randle to NOP for Anthony Davis & Omer Asik.

Then we could trade for Miles Plumlee as a backup center and trade for Tyler Johnson. Sign Gerald Green, Jimmy Butler and Jameer Nelson during free agency. The team would look like this:
Roster:
PG- Jordan Clarkson, Jameer Nelson and draft pick
2G- Kobe, Gerald Green, Tyler Johnson
SF - Jimmy Bulter, Nick Young, Wesley Johnson
PF - Anthony Davis, Ed Davis
C - Omer Asik, Jordan Hill, Miles Plumlee

We would have depth and Kobe wouldn't have to play heavy minutes until the end of the season and playoffs

Realistic summer plan for Lakers

- draft J.Okafor (2nd pick)
- trade 27th pick, 34th pick and cash considerations for 20th pick
- draft J.Anderson (20th pick)
- reject team options of J.Hill and R.Sacre
- renounce all the players rights except the players below
* Capholds: Bryant (25M), Young (5.22M), Okafor (4.25M), Randle (3.13M), Kelly (1.72M), Anderson (1.26M), Davis (0.95M), Ellington (0.95M), Black (0.85M), Clarkson (0.85M) and Brown (0.85M) = 44.17M
--> 67.1-44.17= 22.93M cap space

* As soon as free agency starts (July 1st), offer K.Leonard and J.Butler full-max contracts, including trade kickers and player options (their teams will have 3 days to match the offer if they want to retain the player).


Option 1 - If one of their teams doesn't match the offer (it's unlikely but there is a little chance):
- sign K.Leonard/J.Butler (4-year, 67M: starting from 15.9M, includes trade kicker and player option at last year of the contract)
- sign K.J.McDaniels (3-year, 15M: starting from 4.8M, includes team option)
- trade R.Kelly to 76ers for a future 2nd round pick
- renounce rights of W.Ellington
- sign M.Williams (1-year, 5M)
- resign E.Davis (4-year, 30M)
- sign G.Datome (2-year, 5M: includes team option) via room exception
- sign R.Sacre and D.Buycks (1-year, min.)

Clarkson - Williams - Buycks
Bryant - McDaniels - Brown
Butler/Leonard - Young - Anderson
Davis - Randle - Datome
Okafor - Black - Sacre


Option 2 - If both teams match the offers (sorry, lakers fans but that's the likely one):
- sign D.Carroll (4-year, 40M: starting from 9.36M)
- trade R.Kelly to Celtics for G.Wallace (10.11M) and one of BOS's 2016 1st round picks (less favorable one)
- sign M.Williams (1-year, 5M)
- resign E.Davis (4-year, 30M)
- resign W.Ellington (1-year, 3M)
- sign D.Sloan (2-year, 5M: includes team option) via room exception
- sign R.Sacre (1-year, min.)

Clarkson - Williams - Sloan
Bryant - Ellington - Brown
Carroll - Young - Anderson
Davis - Randle - Wallace
Okafor - Black - Sacre

Don't need to trade down to 20th for Justin Anderson,

If cousins is available, we should make a trade for him as he is the best centre in the league and still only 23 or something.
An unhappy Boogie and someone with a relatively large contract such as Thompson could probably be gotten from the Kings for the lakers 2nd pick, 27th pick, hill and kelly.

Put Young and 34th pick together in order to move up the draft and pick Justin Anderson.

Lakers then could sign a SF such as Harris or Middleton and a PG such as Williams (or maybe, if only super cheap, rondo)

Then resign Davis, Price, Ellington.

Clarkson/ Williams/ Price
Bryant/ Ellington/ Brown
Harris/ Anderson
Randle/ Davis
Cousins/ Black/ Thompson

Not winning a championship, but could surprise a few people with the balance in the side. And we have a future centrepiece to build around in Boogie, potentially pulling in star free agents next pffseason when lakers will have a massive amount of cap room

Thunder-Pistons-Lakers

Thunder gets: 8th (Detroit)

Pistons gets: 14th (Thunder), 27th (Lakers), 34th (Lakers), Hill, PJ3

Lakers gets: 48th (Thunder), Jennings, Lamb

Thunder moves young prospects and two picks, and moves up in the draft. At 8th, they pick Stanley Johnson or WCS. If they pick a C they don't resign Kanter.

Pistons decline Hills team option and saves money so they can resign Jackson. Getting two picks in the first round and a young prospect in PJ3. Now they can purse FA that fits Van Gundys system.

Lakers move their late picks and a expiring contract for a PG. They can start Clarkson and let Jennings recover by playing limited minutes of the bench. Thin Jennings and Kobe will brag about who should shoot most? Both will sit out some games and rest so both will get their chance. Also gets a young moveable piece in Lamb.

What happens if Lakers select Russell with the 2nd pick instead of Okafor or Towns?

Would Sixers trade 3rd and Lakers pick 2016 for Russell and 27th?

Would Sixers select Mudiay and leave Okafor or Towns to the Knicks?

Would Sixers pick Okafor or Towns with Embiid and Noel already in the front court?

Would Sixers trade Embiid for the 4th pick and select Okafor or Towns with the third and Mudiay with the fourth?

Will be a interesting draft night.
What do you think?

Brooklyn-Lakers-Pistons

Brooklyn gets: Jennings, Hill, Young

Lakers gets: Williams, Butler, 1st Brooklyn (29th)

Pistons gets: Johnson, 2nd Lakers (34th)

Brooklyn moves salaries and saves over 20 million next year. They need some new pieces to turn the team around.

Lakers gets a starting PG to pair with Kobe in the backcourt. With Randle and Towns or Okafor as bigs, they need a starting SF. They could start Butler and focus on signing a star Big like Gasol or Aldridge and bring Randle of the bench.

Pistons make this move so they can resign Jackson. Bringing in a veteran like Johnson on a big expiring contract to play with their young core is good for a team in need of experience. They still have the cap space if they want to make a move for D.Green, but I believe he will remain with the Warriors.

Okay am I crazy for thinking this is possible? Also, no clue how salary cap stuff matches up for trades to know if this is possible.

LAL Trade
#2 pick
Randle
Hill
Young (or another piece or two if needed - possibly one or both other picks from this year)

SAC trade
Cousins
#6 pick

LAL draft WCS to pair in front court with Cousins

SAC gets Okafor/Randle to build around and some other decent assets and make sure they get something in return instead of just seeing Cousins walk when his contract his up since he's unhappy there.

Lakers would obviously make more moves than this. Would need to find a good SF, but do you guys think this would make sense at all?

(3)
(9)

Yes you're crazy. Oakafor and Randle are two lottery picks. Right now Cousin can't even get his team to the playoffs. Oakafor could turn out to be the next Tim Duncan.

Players can be taught to play defense. Offense is something you're born with.

^ As for the comment above, it's not cousins fault they are losing, he put up 39p 20r and still lost by double digits. He is an absolute machine

Revised for you
Lakers - Bulls

Lakers Trade: 2015 2nd Overall Pick, 2015 (27th) Overall Pick, Jordan Hill and Swaggy

Need to dump salaries tied to picks and Swaggy’s contract.

Bulls Trade: Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol
Lakers Sign: Marc Gasol

Lakers 2015- 2016 Lineup
Center: Marc Gasol/Tarik Black/Robert Sacre
Power Forward: Pau Gasol/Julius Randle/Ryan Kelly
Small Forward: Jimmy Butler/ Chris Copeland/Wesley Johnson
Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant/Wayne Ellington/Vander Blue
Point Guard: Jordan Clarkson/Nate Robinson/34th pick

Here’s why this could work.

Chicago has to start rebuilding now because they are on the hook for Rose’s contract they need draft picks to revamp their roster. Bulls would have 3 first round picks. If they re-sign Butler they’ll make the playoffs in the east for the next five years.

Lakers might do this in order to land big time free agents in 2017 when the salary cap will explode to 90 mil. Therefore I can see guys like Butler and Gasol signing modest one year deals. If you are a FA allstar you don’t want to sign a long term deal this year you want to sign a deal next year.

With that being said, I’m not sure if you can win a championship in today’s NBA with two 7-footers in the line.

But this isn’t as crazy as some may think. The importance of giving Kobe 48 mil was 1. It showed loyalty by the organization and 2. It put free agents on notice that the Lakers will spend money.

Don’t let the media fool you with they lie about FAs not wanting to play with Kobe. That was only Howard. Every FA this summer will take a look at the Lakers. The Lakers are holding the cards.

As for the idea of trading Okafor as the original poster suggested, I'm not sure I'd do it. Lakers are known for developing bigs and turning them into champions.

TRADE
Sacramento trade Cousins and 6th
Lakers trade 2nd/ 27th/ 34th, Hill, Young

Lakers get their big man who is an established star player. I say make a trade for him no matter how much potential Okafor/ Towns has, take advantage of this unsettled star. Also get the sixth pick.

Sacramento get to do a bit of a rebuild, being able to bring in 3 rookies (including a top 2 talent to build around). Also get 2 solid players who can provide sparks off the bench (if they decide to accept hills option)

DRAFT
Justice Winslow- at the very least will bring energy and defense. Can offensively learn from Kobe.

SIGN
Tobias Harris- Young, talented, versatile and is a bit of a different player to Winslow so the team can switch things up depending on who they are playing.
Mo Williams- Veteran PG who can help Clarkson develop, and add leadership to the bench

RESIGN
Ed Davis- Brings energy off the bench, capable of putting up near double double every night when playing. Wants to stay.
Wayne Ellington- makes his shots, puts in effort and won't cost much, as well as he wants to stay.
Ronnie Price- 3rd string gaurd, great defense and wants to be here. A leader.

Team
Clarkson/ Williams/ Price
Bryant/ Ellington/ Brown
Harris/ Winslow
Randle/ Black/ Kelly
Cousins/ Davis

Would love to see this team, although it is very much a DREAM. Got a good mix of young players and veterans. Would put us probably in the playoffs depending on injuries, and sets us up for the future with big names to attract other big name players.

Randle and Cousins could possibly be one of the best big man duos in the future, both attacking the boards well and being able to score in many different ways, along with cousins improved defense.
Winslow can replace Kobe in games in which he doesn't play due to injury, back to backs etc. Also, the whole bench should be able to hold its own as there are some pretty talented players on there.
Clarksons scoring numbers may drop however he should be able to up the assists due to the amount of players on the team that are able to score, and of course the increased playing time he will be getting all season.

THIS PROBABLY WONT HAPPEN AS MUCH AS I WANT IT TOO LOL
