Lakers gets: Lawson
Brooklyn gets: Swaggy P, Gallinari
Denver gets: D.Williams, Plumlee, Lakers top 5 pick 2015
Lakers upgrade at PG and get rid of Young. Maybe they should get Plumlee instead of Denver if the pick is top 3. Still have money to make a big splash in free agentcy.
Nets save some money by giving up D.Will and will start Jack at PG. Young takes over the bench scoring. Gallinari gives them a starting SF and moves Johnson back to SG.
Denver takes Williams contract and gets rewarded with a top 5 first pick in this years draft. Lawson will be missed but with two draft picks in this years draft and Plumlee they have pieces for rebuilding.
The Lakers could get WAY more value for that pick. Lawson is an underrated starting Pg in the nba and might be an interesting combo guard to trade for it they got lucky with Towns/Okafor in the draft but definitely not worth that pick. In their current situation Mudiay and Russell are well worth the gamble over a 27 year old who's hit his ceiling.
It will be unwise in the extreme to trade away the top five pick. It's the first one we have had since Worthy was drafted, and it will be a long while before we get another. Let's use it to get a top talent, and not waste it on slightly above average players. D'Angelo is already better than Lawson!

Lal trade 27th and nick young to phi for wroten and 2nd
It'll be great if it could happen, but why would Philly give up their second pick for a talent they know well about (meaning Young) and don't want!
05 May 2015 13:06:03
Restructure Kobe's contract and take pay cut if he wants a chance at another championship in his last season. Decline Jordan Hills team option.
Sign Marc Gasol 14-17mill
Sign Kevin Love 13-16 mill
Sign Demar Carroll 5-8mill
Draft Russell with top 5 pick
Trade Nick Young, Ryan Kelly, Black, 27th pick and 2nd round pick to Miami for Dragic- sign and trade
But unlikely to happen
04 May 2015 23:32:39
LAL get Jeff Green
MEM get Nick Young, Jordan Hill and 27th pick
LAL sign Rajon Rondo and Robin Lopez
MEM sign DeMarre Carroll
Jeff Green is a free agent
Lakers could just sign him especially if they get Rondo. Draft Russel or winslow. Then maybe trade Nick Young, Hill and Sacre for a reliable Center (Byombo), and finally signing Koufos.
With the remaining drafts Upshaw, Jefferson
Rondo, Clarkson, Price
Bryant, Ellington, Brown
Green, Winslow, Jefferson
Davis, Randle, Kelley
Koufos, Byombo, Upshaw
Lakers would be giving up way to much for green, and he is a free agent anyways
Byombo is not a reliable center

Golden State / Lakers Trade
Lakers receive: David Lee, Harrison Barnes, Golden State '16 1st round pick.
Golden State receives: Jordan Hill and Lakers '16 or 17 2nd round pick.
Why for the Lakers?
They get Harrison Barnes who's an athletic wing that is an above average defender who is a solid shooter. David Lee is a willing PF that can score, but his main value is his expiring contract. Lakers in addition can get a late 1st round pick for next year considering they wouldn't have a pick for next yr due to the Dwight trade.
Why for the Warriors?
Able to clear playing time and cap space in order to give Draymond Green the money he wants and more minutes. In addition they get Jordan Hill who could potentially thrive in Kerr's system as a PF or even C in a small ball lineup that can shoot the mid-range jumper and is improving his shot. They also get a future 2nd as a sweetener.
I agree Harrison Barnes will be a great addition, but we don't need another PF. Let me count: We have Randle, Ed Davis, Tarik Black, Ryan Kelly and Jordan Hill, of whom three or four will likely return, and they are all good. The two positions we need BADLY are at 3 and 5, and all the trades need to ficus on that.
Harrison Barnes can also play SF, which the lakers desperately need, because Wes Johnosn can not do it.
Throw the ball chucker clarkson In and we gotttta deal.
^is on drugs, why tf would we get rid of clarkson
03 May 2015 04:32:34
1st of all the Lakers need to get rid of clarkson, sacre, jordan hill, johnson and all the other d-league scraps from the past few seasons and make legit signings this off season and get some decent draft picks like Towns, Winslow, or even Mudiay.
2nd of all the lakers need a decent point guard and I don't trust Rondo but he is still the best option when compared to '' clank clarkson'' (lol).
3rd Lakers need to figure out a role for Kobe, he is 37 obviously not 27 anymore. He needs a young shooter who will come in for him and Nick Young hasn't proven me he is worthy of that role yet.
Sooooo with that being said here is my take on how the lakers depth chart and roster should look in this rebuilding process, i'm going to try and be as realistic as possible.
PG Rondo / Norris Cole / JJ Barea
SG Kobe / Nick Young / Wayne Ellington
SF Middleton / Dunleavy / Kyle
PF Randle / Brandon Bass / Jason Smith
C Towns / Kosta Koufos / Ryan Hollins
That is probably the most realistic team I could come up with if the lakers get lucky in the draft and free agency.
So you want to sign Rondo and get rid of Clarkson. I just want to point that out. unbelievable
Why hating on Clarkson?
Why all this hate on Clarkson?
Buy the entire free agency lol
I don't want to get rid of just clarkson I want to get of the entire team pretty much and rebuild with free agency and draft picks. or do you want to keep a solid 2nd round pick that lead the lakers to the worst record in franchise history?
Clarkson is a good part of our future.
Clarkson a good part of our future? lmao. Clarkson is a good 3rd string point guard at best on the worst team in the NBA. Clarkson has to go along with 80% of last seasons roster. Lakers need to get serious this off season, enough d-league players and more legit NBA level players.
Only players that would make a trade for randle or clarkson or both adequate:
Lol u saying Clarkson sucks. I wish u were the GM. Put down the Haterade man.
I agree clarkson isn't whack but he isn't as good as durant and co.
whoever put that is tripping
I don't think any one who watches basketball would disagree on keeping Clarkson. Jbarker404 is probably the one clicking on the unbelievable buttons in the comments defending cLarkson.
If LA is looking to trade for any of the names I posted on that list, they can use Clarkson or Randle to speed up the process maybe a second rounder with kelly and young or hill. But if Lakers give up on Clarkson or Randle, they don't have to trade the First round pick.
02 May 2015 21:04:37
For once i'm going to be short and quick
pg - clarkson
sg - kobe
sf - carroll/c.brewer
pf - randle
c - chandler/r.lopez/asik (8m)
bench - brooks, russell, g.green (trade with young), davis, mcgee/okafor
reserves - a.miller, vander blue, granger, kelly, d.johnson/upshaw
Not a championship side but has veterans with team USA experience.
The best part is it allows the core of Clarkson-Russell-Hollis Jefferson-Randle-Upshaw (hopefully) to develop which could be a title contender team in the future.
02 May 2015 16:22:02
Lakers get Damian Lillard
Blazers get 4th pick and Jordan Hill
Lakers sign Kevin Love
Why would the Blazers ever want to trade Lillard?
02 May 2015 16:05:46
CHI get LaMarcus Aldridge and Nick Young
POR get Nikola Mirotic, Jordan Hill and 27th pick via LAL, LAL future 1st rd pick
LAL get Joakim Noah
Not worth it tbh
02 May 2015 15:40:03
LAL get PJ Hairston and 2nd rd pick

LAL sign LaMarcus Aldridge and Rajon Rondo
LAL draft Justise Winslow

Rondo team option in the 4th year.
Lakers draft: Winslow, hollis jefferson and Upshaw
Lakers resign: Ed. Davis, Ellington and Black.

Lakers trade; Hill + Young for Lance Stevenson.
PG: Rondo, Clarkson, Brown
SG: Bryant, Stevenson, Ellington
SF: Green, Winslow, jefferson
PF: Davis, Randle, Kelly
C: Koufos, Black, Upshaw
Rondo should be paid less than Jeff Green
30 Apr 2015 23:14:55
Draft day trade:
Lakers get: Jarrett Jack, Tony Snell, 22nd, and 41st pick
Nets get: Nick Young, Robert Sacre and 27th pick

Justin Anderson SF
Robert Upshaw C
Terran Petteway SG/SF
Jack / Mudiay / Buyucks

Rajon Rondo/Jordan Clarkson/Ronnie Price
Kobe Bryant/Nick Young/Jabari Brown

I liked that last one, can someone explain how that can happen?
What happens to Jhill
30 Apr 2015 19:02:40
Aquire DeMar DeRozan for Randle + Nick Young
Sign Rondo for less than max
Sign KLove for Max
Top 5 pick - WCS
30 Apr 2015 19:01:13
I don't see a lot of movement from bigger name free agents this off season (Leonard, Butler, Gasol, Jordan, Middleton, Aldridge) and the Lakers don't need to be a playoff team next year but if they can start building a strong core they'll have the foundation they need to entice a big FA in 2016/2017 when they have more money to throw around.
Two guys that fill major gaps in the Lakers roster would be Danny Green (Free Agent) and Taj Gibson (Trade). They are both hard nosed defenders, one stretches the floor with his shooting, the other protects the rim and can knock down mid-range jump shots. Bulls have a crowded front court and will be focused on retaining Butler.
Clarkson (6'4) Mudiay (6'5) Green (6'6) and Gibson (6'9 with a 7'4 wingspan) would be a very long athletic group that could become a really strong defensive unit by the end of next season.
Offense would come from Kobe, Randle, Young, Green stretching the floor.
Young, Ellington and Brown will supplement Kobe's limited minutes.
Emmanuel Mudiay - Jordan Clarkson
Kobe Bryant - Jabari Brown - Wayne Ellington
Danny Green - Nick Young
Julius Randle - Ed Davis - Ryan Kelly
Taj Gibson - Jordan Hill
They'd still have some cap room to play around with.
Their front court would be a little undersized but the length on the perimeter would be a huge advantage.
I like but I think Danny Green will get bullied by higher level 3s in the NBA
30 Apr 2015 14:42:40
LAL get: Paul George
Sign: Rondo & Love
IND get: Lance Stephenson, Julius Randle, LAL 1st DP 2015, & CHA 2015 1st DP
Draft: D'Angelo Russell or Emanuel Mudiay & Willie Cauley-Stein
Sign: Demarre Carroll
pg. russell or mudiay/hill
CHA get: David West & Nick Young
30 Apr 2015 06:21:43
This is my roster for the lakers for 2016
PG. Jordan clarkson
SG. D Angelo Russell or Emmanuel-Mudiay (Top 5 pick)
SF. Kobe bryant
PF. Julius Randle
C. Kevin Love (Free Agent)
PG. Jabari brown
SG. Rashad-Vaughn (early second round)
SF. Hollis Jefferson (Late first round)
C. Ed Davis
Where is nick young, trade him for another pick
We would have to score 130 points per night in order to win, cause there ain't no defense inside
28 Apr 2015 21:19:24
LAL get: Paul George & Gorgui Dieng
Sign: Rondo & Love
MIN get: Julius Randle & IND 1st DP 2015
Draft: Towns & Oubre
IND get: Shabazz Muhammed, Jordan Clarkson, & LAL 1st DP 2015
Draft: D'Angelo Russell
28 Apr 2015 10:23:39
Lakers get Terrence Ross
Raptors get Lance Stephenson and Jordan Hill
Hornets get st Amir Johnson and Nick Young + LA 2nd rd pick
- Lakers get a young starting SF
- Raptors add some toughness
- Hornets add a vet PF and a scorer
-sign Rajon Rondo, Kevin Love and Alexis Ajinca
Really liked that idea!
I'd resign Ellington and draft a SF.
Draft Upshaw and Hollis Jefferson
Rondo/ Clarkson or Brown/ Buycks
Bryant/ Clarkson or Russel/ Brown
YES Randle is like Z-Bo, but not exactly; he is more athletic, faster, and has better range. Randle can run up the floor from coast to coast. So, he is more of a 6'9 SF, pretty much like LBJ.
28 Apr 2015 04:34:03
LAL get Trevor Ariza
HOU get Jeremy Lin and 27th pick
27 Apr 2015 23:15:20
Lakers - Kings
Lakers get Cousins
Kings get Hill, Young and draft pick Hou
Lakers sign Rondo (40mil/4 yr)
Deng (9 mil/ 2 yr)
Derrick Williams (4 mil/2 yr)
and resign Davis (7 mil/2 yr)
At the very least they would have to throw in the 4th overall pick to have a shot at getting Boogy.
Centers that average 24 and 12 are nearly impossible to find, it would take a lot for the Kings to give him up.
The Lakers best shot is if they get lucky and move up in to the top 2 of the draft so they can have a legit Center prospect to package in the deal.
27 Apr 2015 20:39:15
LAL - IND - CHA
LAL get: Paul George & Roy Hibbert
IND get: LAL 2015 1st, Noah Vonleh, Jordan Clarkson, & Lance Stephenson
Draft: Justice Winslow & Willie Cauley-Stein
CHA get: David West & Nick Young
Draft: Kelly Oubre
27 Apr 2015 19:29:03
Get 4 pick
Sign guys like Rondo for 6-8 mil for 2 years, Tobias Harris or khris Middleton for 8-10 mil a year and possibly Kevin Love. They get two out of those three
My lineup projection
Clarkson/ Russell/ fa
Kobe/ Russell/ young
Harris/ young/ fa
Love/ randle/ fa
Love can't play c on his best day
27 Apr 2015 19:24:34
Sacre nick young and Kobe for durant
27 Apr 2015 11:10:30
trade Nick Young and Jordan Hill to Phoenix for PJ Tucker
Suns give way to TJ Warren
Lakers get a defensive wing
Lakers draft : 4th overall - D'Angelo Russell (would be Kobe's successor in the future as their prime SG)
27th pick draft Aaron Harrison
Lakers signings :
PF : LaMarcus Aldridge (4yr/72mil)
PG : Rajon Rondo (3yr/25mil)
CE : Ed Davis (3yr/15mil) - MLE
CE : Omer Asik (4yr/30mil)
Lakers would always want to b a contender and will have a line up like this
PG : R. Rondo / J. Clarkson / J. Brown
SG : K. Bryant / D. Russell / A. Harrison
SF : P. Tucker / R. Kelly / X. Henry
PF : L. Aldridge / J. Randle
CE : O. Asik / E. Davis / R. Sacre
- an experienced starting line-up and a bench full of young and energetic players
No space in the cap for this one!
PG: Rondo / Clarkson / Price
SG: Bryant / Aar.Harrison(27th) / Brown
SF: Winslow (4th / Young / Johnson
PF: Aldridge / Randle / Kelly
C: Davis / Black / Sacre
or switch davis and aldridge
27 Apr 2015 04:10:39
SA: 34ovr pick and 2 second round picks somewhere between 2016-2018
25 Apr 2015 23:35:47
Draft - D'Angalo Russell and Dakari Johnson with the two first round picks. (Johnson worked very well with Randle at Kentucky.)
Sign - Kevin Love - 15-17 Million (give him somewhat of a pay cut in first year and then with the salary cap rising make his $ amount rise in the future years.)
Sign - Wesley Matthews - 5-8 Million (With the injury his value is down and we should take advantage of that.)
Sign - Rajon Rondo - 5-8 Million, or however much is left. (With all the articles on Rondo's plan to go to the Lakers, I can see it happening. Plus Kobe wants him.)
PG - Rondo/Russell
SG - Kobe/Clarkson/Brown
SF - Matthews/Young
PF - Love/Randle/Black
C - Johnson/Davis
13th person could be a second round pick or one of the people the Lakers had brought up form the D-League towards the final games.
Upshot is better than Johnson
25 Apr 2015 20:24:03
Rondo on discount, Sign Kevin Love/ Alridgde
Ed Davis, Black, Ellington
Hill, Young, Sacre for suns' Gerald green
PG: Rondo, Clarkson, Buyck
SG: Bryant, Elllignton, Brown
SF: Green, Randle, Oubre Jr
PF: Love, Davis, Kelley
C: Towns, Black, Upshaw
Randle will be a small Forward, before you critique you should watch videos of him in Lakers pre-season games.Also, he has lost some weight.
Dunno what pick we are meant to get oubre jnr with, he won't fall to our last two picks.
For the people who are in that trade, we could get a better player than green
25 Apr 2015 17:04:54
Sign Rondo and Jimmy Butler.
PG: Rondo/Clarkson/second round pick
C: Hill/Davis/second round pick
Don't exercise Hill's option. Re-sign him and backload his contract.
25 Apr 2015 09:09:29
Of course everyone will say unbelievable but.LOL
Lakers turn things around
LAL offer 3 1st round picks including this year, Nick Young and Jordan Hill's team option for Kevin Durant
LAL then sign LaMarcus Aldridge and Rajon Rondo (small value)
Durant will be lucky to stay healthy for a full Season. His injury causes loss of athleticism, plus we want someone to play defense.
I'd play Aldridge as a center
If the Lakers' pick falls out of the top 5 it belongs to Philadelphia. Lakers traded the rights to that pick to Phoenix as a part of the Steve Nash trade and Phoenix traded it to Philly who gave up Michael Carter-Williams to get it. So it can't be traded.
If you end up with the 3rd to fifth pick in this draft then it's a no brainer draft Winslow if the Lakers get #1trade back for more picks Winslow is the guy of this draft
Hezonja is the best wing in the Draft
25 Apr 2015 09:06:54
sign: Rondo, Monroe, Danny Green/Wes Matthews
draft: Winslow, Upshaw
PG: Rondo / Clarkson / Buycks
SG: Kobe / Green pr Matthews / Brown
SF: Winslow / Young / Johnson
PF: Davis( low post Defense) / Randle(6th man), Kelly
C: Monroe / Black / Upshaw
Best centers in Draft
Best Point Guards in Draft
Best Wings in Draft
