Lakers - Magic
Lakers send j. Clarkson, T. Black and N. Young

Magic send N. Vucevic, E. Payton and CJ Watson

Lakers receives a center with more upside than mozgov, backup guard to russel and bench player that could play valuable minutes off the bench.

Magic receives an athletic guard to replace oladipo minutes, a backup forward and center if they play small and n. Young a threat on the outside.

Balance for both teams.

Trade scenario between the Lakers, 76ers and Kings.

NOTE: I'm only including the primary players to be traded, it may include picks.

Lakers:
-send Lou Williams, Anthony brown to 76ers
-receive Demarcus Cousins

76ers:
-send Noel or Okafor
-receive Anthony brown and Lou Williams

Kings:
-send Demarcus Cousins
-receive Noel or Okafor

EXPLANATIONS:
This trade depends on who the 76ers want to trade either Noel or Okafor, if they decide to trade Noel this needs to be done this season because Noel will be a RFA after this season. If they decide to trade Okafor, this trade could happen next offseason since Okafor will still have 2 years in his contract once the season ends.

For the Kings, whoever they get will be fine for them, they still retain a quality center since Okafor will still have a few years in his contract and Noel is a RFA who they could easily keep. Still a win for them.

For the 76ers, everyone knows they want to trade one of their centers, with that they get a quality shooting guard in Lou Williams and a decent defender in Anthony brown. Their current Shooting guards are henderson, stouskas and Bayless, that ain't going to cut it.

Now for the Lakers, they get the all star that they are dying for in a long time plus freeing up around 8M from Williams and AB.

I think this is possible, 76ers want to trade one of their centers no team is biting on it, kings desperately want to get something out of Cousins before he leaves and Lakers are in need of an all star without sacrificing their young guns.

Believable4 Unbelievable11

28 Jul 2016 16:05:42
Kings are going to want more than either Noel or Okafor if they are trading Cousins. Do you honestly believe that the Lakers can get Cousins with only giving up Lou Williams and Anthony Brown? That's not going to be possible. Kings will want Russell if they trade Cousins. Also the Lakers aren't freeing up money they are actually spending more with this trade. So Calderon would probably have to be included.

Agree7 Disagree3

28 Jul 2016 19:36:59
The 76ers and Kings are already bad teams. No reason to screw them over like this. This is why we have our own site.

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Jul 2016 07:40:05
Can I see some dream scenarios. Well may i?

Mine is Lakers win lottery next year.

Trade that pick, young, Williams and Randle for cousins. Kings would waive the vets or keep Williams. That's a lot for a rental but it's worn it. Cousins would love Westbrook.

Sign Westbrook

Westbrook- triple double machine
Russell- can shoot and clutch
Ingram- dk yet just potential everywhere
Nance- love his hustle/ hope develop more
Cousin-pure beast
With mozgov, clarkson and deng there main bench players. Along with other young players and can sign a decent bench player with mle. After two years they can be contenders. Think Ingram and russell would decide that.

Believable3 Unbelievable10

28 Jul 2016 21:19:16
We hAve a chance next year to get Tatum or Giles in the draft next year. We need to try and keep our pick

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Jul 2016 20:48:17
Trade Russell Randle young for cousins
Clarkson
Ingram
Deng
Cousins
Mozgov
Keep in mind starting Ingram at the 2 is not a bad idea KD did it his first 2 years with the thunder.
Make mozgov look attractive 25 min a game average 9 points10 rebounds 4 assists 1.5 blacks a game
2017 trade mozgov for cheap to gain cap space back
Sign Westbrook 4 year max
Westbrook huertus
Clarkson Williams
Ingram brown
Deng/ nance
Cousins/ Zubac/ black
2018
Sign cousins 5 year max deal
Maybe start looking for a trade for deng again future assets to free up cap room to sign Ingram when he come a free agent but to also hit the free agency harder with a good looking team with Westbrook and cousins and Ingram if we can't trade Deng he would come off the bench and nance would start.

For those that want a star.
Kings/Lakers
Lakers get
Cousins/Kufos/Gay/Maclemore

Kings get
Deng/Mozgov/Russell/Randle
We would have to wait until December.
Kings get 2 young talented player and rid themselves of everyone they want gone.

Lakers get a star a better version of Deng. Able to play 3/4. Gay has p/o next season and Kufos the following year. They will both opt out.
Lakers
Clarkson/Calderon
Maclemore/Williams
Gay/Ingram
Cousins/Nance
Kufos/Zubac

Then at trade deadline see what we can get for gay. Maybe a power forward. Hopefully someone that can attract Westbrook next year.
Next year
Westbrook
Clarkson
Ingram
??
Cousins

25 Jul 2016 07:46:37
some of the dumbest trade ideas ever. 1st and foremost, the Lakers won't trade DLO-Randle- or Ingram unless it's D Cousins. The K Love for are young talent is laughably stupid. He plays 0 defense, and his skills are rapidly going down. The Lakers have no reason to trade half the team for Westbrook. A few good Laker trades.

LAL- Young for a box of donuts.
Trade-Williams for a protected 1st Round pick.

25 Jul 2016 02:21:48
Didn't say it was a good trade but the way some of you wanna hold on to these whack players damn are you related to them or just wanna see LA suck for the next 5 yrs. As for how I know I don't but somehow one or two of this core will be gone by deadline

Agree3 Disagree2

25 Jul 2016 02:45:02
How is Kevin love going to make us better. That dude is garbage

Agree7 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 03:09:39
Scorpionking I know your one of those guys that don't believe in the young core which your welcome to that opinion however this young core has had 1 year of experience together. They need time to develop. Adding Brandon Ingram and the vets will help that process. Stephen Curry didn't win his first 3 seasons. Took 5 seasons to win a championship. Detroit Pistons during the Bad Boy days wasn't created overnight. Isiah Thomas lost his first 2 seasons. We have seen quick fixes like trades for Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. It didn't work. Trust the process. This offseason the young core has grown and developed chemistry. It's just going to get better.

Agree9 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 03:11:19
They are not whack. They are just young. Yes it will take a couple years before they are a good team but trading for Love we are still a bad team. I say give them a year with Walton and see what we have. Even if we trade the whole young core and get 2 stars we still aren't going to beat the Warriors.

Agree7 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 13:05:00
There's a reason why it's silent, because it's dumb

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Jul 2016 23:25:43
To city dude not that I'm totally against the young core but it's LA they never wait on development. Kobe balled out his second year how he hit the gym. Unless I'm wrong and is possible Randle isn't playing in summer league right nice way of improving your shot by not playing. Russell is doing ok but they should have never drafted him I think that indecision cost them Aldridge no plan for future and he saw no ballers on team.you can look at a player and see he's got game and right now that's Ingram

Agree2 Disagree1

26 Jul 2016 03:11:00
Kobe had like 2 years of coming off the bench before he really started getting his game on. Randle didn't play in summer league but he did practice with the team at the practice facility. So he is learning Walton's system and developing chemistry. Clarkson did the same as well. No summer league but practiced. Looking back on the 2015 draft the Lakers made the correct selection imo. Who would've you selected? Lakers needed a point guard. Porzingis and Okafor still need developing. Overall your right Aldridge made the decision cause he knew the Lakers wouldn't make the playoffs even with him. Look at it this way. If Aldridge signed the Lakers probably would've lost the pick to the Sixers.

Agree3 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 03:38:22
Look at Curry. Warrior fans were mad when they traded Ellis instead of him. Your giving up on the young guys to soon. It will take a couple years to see what they can become. Yes it's a slower build for the Lakers but it's a new era. Every team has more money to spend and super teams are just going to get better. One and two star teams won't get it done anymore. That's why we should develop the young core. Even it only Russell and Ingram make it to elite status the other young guys will be solid players. And in a couple years start making a play at the elit players. Trading for Love will not bring us another elit player.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Jul 2016 23:45:49
I'm Kobe first year they used him in isolation for game winners you can't do that with one player from last year team. Point guards come a dime a dozen now look at what they badly seek even willing to pay a guy avg 6pts a game and making more money nearly than Cousins. If they had drafted Okafor they'd not need a big man and would be cheaper along with putting that money on a FA. Let me get this right it's better for Randle to practice than play lol. He can't even work on the system yet he's needstill to work on his game 24/7

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 02:40:51
If PG's are everywhere, why are the sixers only able to get players like Ish and Bayless to play there?

Agree2 Disagree0

27 Jul 2016 03:15:42
Russell will be better than Okafor. There really isn't many top point guards in the league and Russell can at least score. He put up 39 points in a game last season so that has to count for something. He does need to work on his assists. The Lakers were able to sign big men in the summer. If they picked Okafor they would have just overpaid for a nonscoring below average point guard. That free agent wouldn't compare to Russell. Randle is learning the system in practice. Practicing can still be scrimmaging with other teammates and players around the league. You know that players scrimmage with each other. He didn't need summer league. We already know what he can do. Russell sat out the last two games of summer league. We know what he can do. Just wait til the season starts. This group will get it together.

Agree3 Disagree0

24 Jul 2016 10:42:23
2017 potential roster

Sign westbrook
Trade for blake griffin (randle, lou, young)
If enough space or money sign Demarcus cousins
Wedtbrook/ Marcelo
Clarkson/ Russel
Deng/ Ingram
Griffin/ Nance
Mozgov/ Cousins

This is a pipe dream guys and I would give up randle lou and young for griffin (hes a FA player option but i'm assuming we wouldn't have cap space after westbrook. We can trade for griffin after he signs with a team.

Russel can play 2 but I doubt it will happen because he's an alpha guard unlike clarkson.

You can move deng to the 4 and ot could be westbrook, clarkson/ russel, Ingram, Deng, Boogie/ Mozgov

Letting u guys know that I know the only realistic signing is westbrook and that i'm just adding griffin and cousins as a pipe dream, so don't roast.

Let me know what u guys think.

Believable5 Unbelievable13

24 Jul 2016 14:41:16
You are right it is a pipe dream. Your over the cap for 1. Lakers could only sign 1 max free agent next offseason which would be Westbrook. So it would be impossible to add Griffin in a sign and trade without trading one of the following Clarkson, Deng or Mozgov. I rather add to what we have then make changes like trade for Griffin.

Agree8 Disagree2

24 Jul 2016 18:58:11

3 way trade to make everyone happy
Philly gets Russell
Sacramento gets Okafor
LA gets Cousins
This clears opening for Westbrook in 17 and Cousins will not walk from LA I'm traded there this year especially since he's already said he's wanted to go there and can offer him max money. Then you can sign Westbrook to max in 17 and keep your young core.

I think Westbrook has a better chance signing with Ingram & Randle on the team than Cousins. Cousins could just walk after next season which at that time the Lakers could sign him. Also Lakers owe 2 future picks already. Not in a position to give up more.

LAL-PHI-OKC


LAL- Russell Westbrook
PHI- D'Angalo Russell
OKC- Jalil Okafor, Julius Randle, and LAL 2017 1st.


LAL get a star to attract some big names to LA again. Westbrook is from CAL so he would be home and likely resign. This gives LA a solid core to build around.

PG- Russell Westbrook
SG- Jordan Clarkson
SF- Brandon Ingram
PF- Luol Deng
C- Timofey Mosgov

PHI gets the much needed backcourt help with Russell. Essentially swapping Okafor for Russell is a win for them.

PG- D'Angalo Russell
SG- Bayless/ Henderson
SF- Ben Simmons
PF- Nerlens Noel
C- Joel Embiid

OKC gets two very good bigs to groom. Although it does admit that they're rebuilding, it would be dumb to let Westbrook walk like Durant.

PG- Cameron Payne
SG- Victor Oladipo
SF- Kyle Singler
PF- Jalil Okafor
C- Steven Adams.

Believable10 Unbelievable16

No point in trading trading for Westbrook. With the team you show he will leave next year. That team won't get us to the playoffs. Now if we keep the young core and add Westbrook the. We have something. Then trade Russell and Mozgov and a 1st for Cousins.

Agree11 Disagree3

21 Jul 2016 11:21:28
Toolguy- I agree with the first part of your comment, it would be silly to trade for Westbrook, but then in the second half you essentially are doing the same thing. No need to trade for a player with one year left on their contract (cousins would have 1 year left on his contract next offseason). We are a few years away from putting in a serious playoff run anyways, may as well develop the youth

Agree9 Disagree1

21 Jul 2016 16:51:37
True. The more I think about it I really like the young core. I am excited to see this year. I know it was only summer league but I was empressed with Zubac. I think if everybody developes we can have a good team for a long time.

Agree8 Disagree1

20 Jul 2016 15:01:01
Pauljoes- My response would be the same as what labeast just said. There are no guarantees that Westbrook would stay and we can't afford the gamble. I rather gamble he come in July next year and have our young core. In addition trading 2 assets like Russell and Ingram now for Westbrook would make the team less competitive then it would next off season. let's face it we aren't seeing a championship team this year with or without Westbrook.

When all this plays out the only one left from this young core will be Ingram. LA will trade for Cousins and make a play for definitely Westbrook and maybe B Griffin. La is not a franchise of waiting and winning 20-30games yearly.

Believable7 Unbelievable11

17 Jul 2016 03:49:16
It is a new era for the Lakers. They have made plays for top free agent year after year and missed on all. Not even getting meetings with some. And with the money they gave Deng and Mozgov we would have to trade them as well to make a run at Westbrook and Griffen. And there no guaranty they sign. I don't see them trading everybody on hopes and dreams. And Cousin and Ingram won't be much of a attraction to top free agents. Not in the supper team era.
Everybody forgets how the Warriors became a great team. They drafted Curry, Barnes, Green and Thompson. And gave then the time to grow together. I'm not saying they well become as good as them but in 2-3 years maybe when Cousins is a free agent we can attract some top free agents.

Russell
Clarkson
Ingram
Randel/Nance
Zubac
This can be a very good team in a couple years with the vets here to mentor them.

Agree15 Disagree3

18 Jul 2016 02:42:06
They have made plays on FA but the reason why Aldridge,Durant,etc won't really consider is the so called talent everyone here is seeing no one that actually plays the game is seeing this talent. The only way to draw talent is to make a top notch trade for am all star period or this team will be as is for yrs to come

Agree4 Disagree2

18 Jul 2016 04:25:37
Yes. It will take a couple years. Butt in today's nba one star won't get you the top free agents anyways.

Agree4 Disagree2
