Lakers trade Nash and 2nd round pick
Knicks trade JR Smith
Sign Tyrus Thomas
Have JR Sith and Swaggy P shoot all they want off the bench with defense from Price Thomas and Davis
Just trade kobe away from Lakers.
Does he know what it means by discount? Kobe should look at 'discount' taken by Dirk. Lakers should just trade kobe away regardless of the contributions he has for the past 19 seasons, because the goodwill costs too much for one who doesn't even know what discount means.
Owners should eliminate the salary cap. Take a discount so that billionaires can make more money is stupid.
17 Nov 2014 22:45:05
2015 1st (Houston)
2015 2nd (Clippers)
Lakers need talent around Kobe and Kobe cannot do it himself.
Wolves get 2 extra picks for next year and another top pick of 2014. Once he is back to full health with a core of Bennett/Wiggins/Deng/Rubio. This will also keep the wolves from contending for a few more years and not have to give Phx their first round pick.
succeed and proceed
17 Nov 2014 15:39:30
LAL get Corey Brewer and Mo Williams
MIN get Jeremy Lin and future 2nd round pick
NYK get Steve Nash and 2nd round pick

Monroe 4y 60m
Reggie Jackson 3y 28m
Jackson is going to want more money
17 Nov 2014 12:04:15
Lakers get Stoudemire and Shumpert
Knicks get Kobe and Sacre
Lakers get Stoudemire, Tim hardway, and larkin
Knicks get Kobe, and Boozer.
By doing this trade, Lakers will not improve its winning rate, thus bottoming the western conference and obtaining either first or second pick in the coming year. Then lakers can select jahlil okafor, a promising centre in the future.
Try to get kawhi leonard and rondo
PF: Ed davis/Randle
SG: Nick young/Tim hardawy
16 Nov 2014 14:04:54
Lakers trade: Steve Nash
Knicks trade: JR Smith
With this trade the Lakers get bench production and a possible trade piece for an expiring contract.
For the Knicks, you get an expiring contract and a possible mentor to Shane Larkin. You also give Tim Hardaway and Iman Shumpert more opportunities in an unimportant season
12 Nov 2014 20:43:49
Lakers - Pistons Trade
Lakers get Josh Smith and Jennings, to help Kobe.
Jennings - Kobe - Smith - Bozzer - Hill.
Detroit get Nash (out indefinitely and expiring), Lin (expiring) and Randle (out indefinitely).
Lin - KCP - Butler - Monroe - Drummond.
Randle is LA future they will not trade him for a short term process
Jennings and kobe is great
but Randle isn't going anywhere
I would do part of this trade. Jennings for Lin I'd do in a heart beat but I'd do either Randle or Hill for Greg Monroe. This would give the Lakers more offense and defense. No one could double Kobe because Monroe is a beast in the paint plus Jennings is a shooter who would thrive all the open shots he'd get. In additional Jennings can penetrate putting pressure on the opponents defense. The Piston would take Hill because he has more shooting range than Monroe. This would give Drummond more room in the paint.
12 Nov 2014 20:35:57
Monroe 4y 60m
Trade hill for a 1st
12 Nov 2014 14:40:46
Pistons trade: Monroe, Singler
Pistons get: Hill, Stokes, 2015 second rounder from Memphis, 2016 second rounder from Lakers and draft rights to Sekularac
Lakers trade: Hill, Price, Ellington and 2016 second rounder
Lakers get: Monroe, Singler
Warriors trade: Draft rights to Sekularac
Warriors get: Price
Grizzlies trade: Stokes, 2015 second rounder from Memphis
Grizzlies get: Ellington
Why would they do?
Pistons: Monroe will leave the team. That's quite clear. So trading him is a good option to get something instead. They get Hill who is a good player and will not mind backing up Smith and Drummond. Also his team option is something quite good because Pistons may try to sign a big name at next free agency. Stokes adds depth to frontcourt. Two second rounders may help to bolster squad at future seasons.
Lakers: Lakers lacks a star player who will help Bryant to lift the team to the play-offs. Monroe can provide this. Singler will supply much needed depth in SF. Forcing Monroe to resign next summer and trying to attract another star player will be the plan. Also another roster spot is maintained to get both Majok and Miller
Grizzlies: Depth in wing can be maintained by adding Ellington. Not much is given.
Warriors: They need depth in 1. They give anything but a spot to Lakers. Price is a good back-up.
Jordan Hill: He will accept this trade as LA will probably won't use his option to keep his contract.
Greg Monroe: Money is not in his mind for this season. So more probability of a winning team is a preference.
Depth Charts for Pistons and Lakers:
Stop thinking that LA will do all to find a competitive team to Kobe. it will jeopardize their chances to rebuild. Next summer they will add Marc Gasol and check Love status. The trade as much as possible to get a perimeter threat ( Gay, and a bunch of role players to support the team) Kobe will probably not make his last year, that is the rebuilding price tag
11 Nov 2014 01:31:54
lakers next year
Sign Kevin Love
Sign Andrew Bynum (minimum)
Let boozer walk
let Henry walk and sign gerald green
Trade Hill for Mc Carter Williams
! LAKERS LINEUP 2015!
(NOTHING BUT CHAMPIONSHIP)
PG _ Rondo, Lin, Clarkson
SG_Kobe, Young, Williams
SF_ Johnson, Green
PF_Love, Randle, kelly
C_ Davis, Bynum
Don't you mean carter Williams than rondo
Kobe is the worst player so far, jacking up so many shots and only converting a fifth of them.
Best solution is to trade him away, or else just pray that he gets injured so that he won't be playing for Lakers for the next two seasons.
I think they will need both Rondo Marc Gasol and LOve and to do so they will have to cut Kobe
09 Nov 2014 08:30:39
Lakers get Wilson Chandler and JJ Hickson
Nuggets get Jordan Hill and Ryan Kelly + 2nd round pick
Lakers next season
let Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer walk
sign Greg Monroe and Rajon Rondo
R. Rondo / J. Clarkson
K. Bryant / N. Young / X. Henry
W. Chandler / W. Johnson
J. Randle / J. Hickson
G. Monroe / R. Sacre / Rocket's pick
- pretty solid to prepare for next season's comeback
This is not a championship team. We'd have to commit to long term deals for Rondo and Monroe. We can find better talent.
It's easy to be a fan of any team when they are winning. But it's hard to have patience and remain a fan when they are losing.

Lakers are unintentionally tanking, or in other words, they just suck. They can fix their team now or in the summer. If they were to do it now:
(note): The Wolves are rumored to want to part with Budinger due to their crowdedness at the SF position (Wiggins, Brewer, Bennett, Shabazz are all capable of playing SF) and they have 2 more than capable centers (Pek, Dieng). Chase and Turiaf are basically "extras" to the Wolves young/talented cast. Jeremy Lin is a way better backup than Mo Williams and he can definitely fulfill the position if Rubio gets injured.
-(if people think the Lakers aren't giving enough, add 1st round pick via Rockets if you want, I think this is fair because the Pelicans are rumored to be considering shopping around Anderson, Hill is a great replacement. High energy "garbage man" who can knock down a mid range and rebound like crazy. You can start or bench him and he still gives 110%)
Roster after trades (these trades can only happen after December)
*waive Ellington, perfect when Young comes back
PG: Jordan Clarkson/Ronni Price/Jimmer Fredette
SG: Kobe Bryant/Nick Young/Xavier Henry
SF: Chase Budinger/Wesley Johnson (or) Henry
PF: Ryan Anderson/Boozer/Ryan Kelly
C: Ed Davis/Ronny Turiaf/Robert Sacre
injured players out for season: Nash, Randle
This roster stands at 14 active, Lakers are allowed to have a 16 man roster if granted by NBA with a certain amount of players inactive which would be Nash, Randle.
*Clarkson should get the start, help improve backcourt defense, not scared to drive to the rim, decent ball handling skills, good size at 6'5 to make it harder for other PGs, and ball will be in Kobes hand most of the time anyways. i'm pretty sure starting him (rather than keeping Lin) is no different from Lin, if anything he's better
*Budinger, Anderson add consistent 3 point shooting and scoring to take load off Kobe. Budinger > Johnson
*Davis as a starter adds defense when Kobe gets beat off the dribble, which he will
*Nick Young can lead bench in scoring or bring in Fredette instead of Price for even more scoring
Best thing is that Lakers and other teams involved all get to keep cap flexibility for next summer
Seriously don't expect LA to have a championship team with KObe anymore. They will take 2 years, draf assets to trade, get big contract out and rebuild. This is what they will sell to their target. next year you play with Kobe and then we build on you: Love, Rondo, Marc Gasol, and a perimeter threat like Gay, Evans,
05 Nov 2014 10:47:29
Lakers should tank and try to get their pick on next year's draft
if things go their way, select Okafor
sign Rudy Gay 4yr 60mil
sign Goran Dragic 4yr 44mil
G. Dragic / J. Clarkson
K. Bryant / N. Young
R. Gay / W. Johnson
J. Randle / E. Davis / R. Kelly
J. Okafor / J. Hill / R. Sacre
Just trade kobe away. scored 39 points by jacking up 37 shots. are u serious dude?
Be patient and wait for free agents in 2016, eg Durant, Gasol, Aldridge.
04 Nov 2014 14:56:51
Worst the Lakers are with Kobe the better Chance of both him wanting out and Lakers want out become. Do Lakers want the picks or players.
OKC get JrSmith Moultrie Aldrich
Lakers get Hardaway Early Bargnani Perkins OKC 1st
Knicks get Kobe
Lakers get some big with expiring contracts. Hardaway could be the next Klay Thompson and additional 1st
OKC desperate for scoring
Knicks - do it bc if they can manage to keep everyone healthy for end of April, May and June they have chance for something special
sign Okafor A.Bynum K-mart S.jackson
Shizee, I really hope that happens :DD
03 Nov 2014 04:55:57
LAL get Mo Williams , Corey Brewer or Chase Budinger
MIN get Jeremy Lin
expiring contract of Lin help Wolves
Mo Williams would be a better PG for the LAL + they get a SF
03 Nov 2014 05:56:17
lakers boston trade lakers get rajon rondo boston get jeremy lin julius randle 1rd pick 2015 via rockets
Julius randle cod be an amazing player one day, last time rondo played in the finals he lost to the lakers, he wouldn't resin with la and he's knjury prone bad trade
02 Nov 2014 06:35:46
Lakers refuse to tank. 76ers refuse to have healthy, NBA quality players to put on the court.
Lakers get N Noel
76ers get J Rand
Correction. Lakers refuse to say publicly that we are tanking and rightfully so. But we are tanking this year and next.
01 Nov 2014 19:11:59
Leonard 3y 45m
Monroe 4y 60m
I think there fa
01 Nov 2014 07:22:47
Lakers need to tank this season so they should trade for draft picks. They should try to have a bad record to be between the 1st pick to the 5th pick so they can get their pick back from the Suns. Trade Jordan Hill for picks
Don't resign Jeremy Lin or Carlos Boozer
Goran Dragic to a 4 year 60-70 million dollar deal
Marc Gasol or Greg Menroe to a 4 year 50-60 million dollars
C Gasol or Menroe
Hopefully we can draft Okafor
30 Oct 2014 19:34:14
LAL get Corey Brewer
MIN get Steve Nash' expiring contract and 2nd round pick
sign Brook Lopez (or any center like Omer Asik , Deandre Jordan) and Goran Dragic
resign Carlos Boozer for cheap
make Randle healthy
hope to be a contender come 2015
G. Dragic / J. Clarkson
K. Bryant / N. Young / X. Henry
C. Brewer / W. Johnson
C. Boozer / J. Randle / R. Kelly
B. Lopez / J. Hill / R. Sacre
Please. Boozer is a complete joke, no defense, bad hands, no lift. Keep Ed Davis and hope Randle recovers, those are the only PFs you need (Plus Kelly)
27 Oct 2014 13:48:56
Lakers get Will Bynum
Celtics get future 2nd
Laker should ship Kobe to Knicks in exchange of amare, whose contract is expiring next year. as ridiculous as this trade sounds, this will def do good to Lakers since it will have more cap to rebuild next year.
From the preseason games we know that Kobe isn't the old Kobe, and I don't think he can make difference for lakers this year.
Kobe's contract will help us rebuild quicker believe it or not. In fact he needs to probably sign for an additional year for approximately 20 to 25 mil based on my calculations.
People forget teams have to spend 95+ percent of the salary cap otherwise they are penalized. Kobe's contract gives the Lakers ability not to commit lengthy contracts to other players until we start the rebuilding process.
I'd trade Jordan Hill for picks, let Nash contract expire and let the disable players exceptions expire. Maybe pickup another big.
Be patient Lakers fans. Don't believe the naysayers the Lakers plan B is on track, maybe a little ahead of schedule. That's why Jeanie Buss could definitively say Jim Buss has 3 years.
25 Oct 2014 19:20:11
Monroe 4y 60m
Gay 3y 40m
I'd rather wait on Anthony Davis. Randle and Davis in the back court. We don't need to get players just because they are available. Lakers fans need to be patient.
Hopefully Kawhi and Klay thompson won't sign extension with their respective clubs, thus making them an unrestricted players next season.
Lakers should, by hook and by crook, obtain those two players who can be the club's next franchise in the near future.
Klay has re-signed which is okay IMO. I don't think he is a max player. One of the things the Lakers are doing right now that nobody is talking about if forcing teams to hand out max deals to non-superstars like Klay and Bledsoe. PHX will probably have to Dragic a max deal too. Rubio darn near got a max deal and that's crazy.
Owners can't afford to be in luxury tax situation and have the Lakers under the cap, and Lakers national TV ratings down too.
25 Oct 2014 18:38:08
sign Iman Shumpert for $10 mil
sign Gerald Green with mid-level exception $5 mil
resign Jeremy Lin for $5 mil
resign Ed Davis for $6 mil
draft one of the Harrison twins from Kentucky
Clarkson & Harrison/Green/Young/Kelly/Davis
in the 2016 summer the Lakers will have over $34 million to throw at Kevin Durant or Anthony Davis as a result of Kobe and Jordan Hill's contracts coming off the books. Big free agents will also be more inclined to come to LA since there will already be a good nucleus to join consisting of a very solid bench and only two of the five starting spots being unoccupied.
25 Oct 2014 00:50:27
With Nash out for the year, the Lakers should try to trade him to a team looking for cap or roster space. I think Minnesota could fit that bill. Nash for Barea and Brewer.
Lakers get a decent backup PG and a versatile wing, who can either start or come off the bench.
Minnesota clears up some roster spots as well as some playing time for their young players. Plus, even though Nash won't play, he can mentor Rubio from the bench.
Win win for both.
The Lakers are the best organization in the league. Trading his contract is probably not the right thing to do at this point. We should let it expire and let Nash retire with dignity.
24 Oct 2014 23:47:00
Small move, not sure if it works timing wise
Lakers apply for disabled player exception for S Nash, get extra $4.85 million cap space
Celtics send W Bynum & 2 2nd round picks to Lakers
Lakers get extra pg for depth
Celtics get under luxury tax line
I think Philly might trade Michael-Carter-Williams. So I think the Lakers should wait.
21 Oct 2014 20:22:09
Monroe 4y 60m
Gay 3y 40m
