My dream scenario for next year

Resign Julius Randle to a 4 year 72 mill (18mill)

Sign PG 4 year 120mill (30mill)

Resign IT 8 mill 1 year

Resign Lopez 1 year 8 mill

Let KCP walk

Wait one more year to trade Deng

Need some backup help at PG, sign a vet and draft a PG with our Cavs pick

Lonzo, vet pg, rook pg
Ingram, Josh hart
Randle, Kuzma
Lopez, Thomas Bryant, Zubac

Then 2019 I think we need to target a All star centre

Sign and trade randle, hart, 2018 first, 2019 first for Kevin love bkn first

Sign pg13 max draft jaren Jackson

I think this is the only way lebron will stay with Cavs he wants love gone and he doesn't want a rebuild. With the way randles playing right now they have a chance at another championship

With love and pg13 lakers can bring back #showtime

Cavs lineup 2018-19 Clarkson, hill, lebron(resign), nance, randle

Lakers 2018-19 lineup zo, pg13, Ingram, kuz, love

Randle 4 years $10M? lol that would be the biggest steal in awhile. To give you an idea Randle can get a contract in the range of $15M-$24M a year.

Agree3 Disagree2

citydude? its all about sacrifice if the lakers can sign george and thomas i think randle can lower his pride max deal the lakers can give would 48mil/ 4 years while thomas can get 56mil/ 4 years IF YOU WANT THE LAKERS TO BRING BACK DYNASTY THEN PLAYERS SHOULD COOPERATE. now a days players want more money than winning. primary focus as of next season is to get to the PLAYOFFS so signing george and resigning thomas and adjusting randles salary is the best way the lakers can reach that goal.

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Mar 2018 01:54:49
If Randle was going for his 3rd contract yes he would sacrifice. This would be his 2nd contract so he will be getting paid. Dallas Mavericks will make a strong push for him. This is a business so when you say players should cooperate that's kind of a nonsense statement. He will probably get what Deng got which is 4 years $72M. $18M a year. The big issue is if Randle will hold off negotiations with other teams and wait for the Lakers to land Paul George. If Randle shows the Lakers an offer sheet before Paul George has a commitment then the Lakers losing Randle is a big possibility.

Now if the Lakers sign George at the max they can resign Randle and Thomas but that will be the team going forward. No other max free agent. So when you say bring back the dynasty well you are banking on Randle being an allstar which remains to be seen.

2018: don't sign lebron, sign Paul George max, resign Randle 3 yrs

2019: sign Klay Thomson trade ingram, Randle, 2019 first for Anthony Davis and Solomon hill

2019 lineup: lonzo, klay, pg13, kuz, AD

In 2018 they can make a run at the playoffs in 2019

This is important that people must know. If the Lakers resign Randle they won't be able to get 2 Max free agents only 1. Will Paul George sign with the Lakers without Lebron? That is a tough one. Yes the Lakers can trade Randle for Davis but they can't add Klay Thompson with Davis/ George on a roster.

Agree5 Disagree4

15 Mar 2018 12:59:39
How about they don't sign Klay and trade Randle, Hart, 2019 first, 2021 first, 2020 second for AD and Ian clark.

15 Mar 2018 15:44:37
They can do that. Yes.

If, LBJ stays in Cleveland and K Leonard wants out.

Cle: M Gasol

LA: K Leonard

Spurs: Conley+ Kuzma

Memphis: Deng+Smith+T Thompson+ P Mills+ Ingram+ 1rnd pick Nets+ 1rnd pick LA 2019

Cleveland can make another title run, getting an all star and dumping some bad contracts

LA get a star and can go after a second one in free agency.

The spurs get a good return for a star that wants out

Memphis can start a rebuilt getting two lottery picks and Ingram

Why trade Ingram and Kuzma for Leonard who will be a free agent anyway after next year? Lakers shouldn't just trade those players for just anybody. I mean the only player that should be considered for Ingram and Kuzma at this point is Anthony Davs and that's if the Pelicans take the Deng contract. Kuzma if the Blazers were to trade Lillard then I would say the Lakers should consider that. I doubt Cleveland trades the Nets pick. They wouldn't trade it with Thompson for Jordan so I highly doubt they do it for Gasol.

Agree6 Disagree1

13 Mar 2018 15:27:28
In your case we don t HAVE GOOD PF and in free Angency also . So i prefer trade INGRAM.

And SF there is a lot : PG13, KAWHI, LEBRON, J BULTTER . ARIZA.

Agree1 Disagree3

12 Mar 2018 16:32:55
Lakers should avoid all things Lebron and just add to their core.

FA signings
-Paul George (max)
-Deandre Jordan
-Isaiah Thomas
-Julius Randle
-Alex Caruso
-Travis Wear

FA trades
-Lakers receive (one year player) + cap relief
-SAS receive Zubac
-ATL received Deng + (24-27) Cavs pick 2018, Spurs 2019 first (protected 1-20)

Waive Tyler Ennis

PG: Ball/Thomas/Caruso
SG: George/Hart/(Summer or G-League)
SF: Ingram/vet FA
PF: Randle/Wear/Bryant
C: Jordan/FA

ATL - potential tanking team in 2019
SAS - no decent big man

Forgot about KuzGoat, he can back up Randle or Ingram.

Agree3 Disagree1

12 Mar 2018 17:53:11
This is good but don't sign Thomas, Caruso, or Jordan. Have Randle play center and kuzma play pf.

Agree3 Disagree2

12 Mar 2018 23:19:24
I agree on signing PG13 but I wouldn't sign Jordan. He does bring defense but the Lakers can get somebody cheaper at center than Jordan. Jordan will be looking for a 4 year $100M deal and he isn't worth that. I do agree with bring Thomas back but that's only if Lebron James doesn't sign. Shouldn't say avoid Lebron cause the way you have the roster I would say it's a 5th seed at best. With Lebron its a 2nd seed at best.

13 Mar 2018 15:31:08
No Deandre i prefer wait for klay thomson in 2019.

@city @honk

Nikola Jokic, Demarcus Cousins (assuming he stays in the West) or Anthony Davis, Steven Adams, Rudy Gobert, Marc Gasol = all seen 3-4 times a season

Drummond, Embiid, Howard = 2 times a season

You really think Randle will be effective at Center? He’s good at PF because most aren’t strong enough to contain him and he’s quick on his feet. But against those guys I named, he will exert too much energy trying to defend them to be as productive as he currently is as a PF. Lebron makes him or Ingram an odd man out. I’d rather be a YOUNG 5th seed that can grow into a 1-2 seed than get rid of Ingram or Randle for a 33 year old. Love Bron, just doesn’t make sense with how good Ingram and Randle are becoming. A center and shooting guard are the only gaps in this team.

Agree2 Disagree1

13 Mar 2018 18:14:36
GM- So you would sign Randle for 5 years $100M+ over signing a 2nd allstar? Keep in mind what the Lakers record was at the beginning of the season and also Randle's numbers while Ingram is in the line up. Also when I say cheaper option I am thinking resigning Lopez at a cheaper number. I do agree with you and disagree with Honk with Randle at center.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Mar 2018 01:28:46

Ingram and Randle are 1-2 years away from being all stars. Lebron coming will hinder their growth. I would rather sign Cousins than Lebron for a second all star but the way this team has been playing, I don’t see why there would be any necessity for both Lebron and George. I’ll take the younger of the two. I wouldn’t mind re-signing Brook AT ALL. Lonzo and Hart’s rebounding ability make Brooks lack of rebounding okay. Brook stretching the floor is great for lazy big men.

Only if PG is coming

LAL stretch Luol Deng (i don't wanna make any trade involving him :D)

let Lopez, Kcp walk (hate it but we need to)

resign Isaiah Thomas 2yr/30mil t.o 2nd yr
resign Randle, playing really well lately and i like him for LAL

sign Derrick Favors (3yr/30mil)

Pg Ball/Thomas
Sg George/Hart
Sf Ingram/Wear
Pf Randle/Kuzma
Ce Zubac/Favors

I read a while back that the Pistons were shopping Stanley Johnson hard. Now, I know he hasn't exactly lived up to expectations in Detroit, but I still believe he has the potential to be great (very solid defender, athletic, and has improved his shot) . Put him at the 2 next to Lonzo, and they would be a nightmare defensively.

Pistons get
Josh Hart
CLE 1st rnd pick 2018
LAL 2nd rnd pick 2018
LAL 1st rnd pick 2020

Lakers get
Stanley Johnson
DET 2nd rnd pick 2018

C- / Zubac
PF- Randle/ Bryant
SF- Ingram/ Kuzma
SG- Johnson/
PG- Ball/

Not a bad young core to build around (IMO) . With Lonzo's shot improving, if Johnson can become a more consistent scorer, this backcourt could be flat out lethal on both ends of the floor. Not to mention, we'd still have Ingram to go to, and Kuzma to provide scoring off the bench.

Believable1 Unbelievable9

07 Mar 2018 04:40:49
Stanley Johnson is not worth 2 firsts, Hart, and a 2nd. Lakers don't own the 2nd round pick in 2018. This deal would set the Lakers back actually. You said it yourself "He hasn't lived up to expectations. " Look at what the Sixers got for Jahlil Okafor.

Agree5 Disagree1

07 Mar 2018 18:38:50
If we could get Stanley Johnson for Josh Hart and a 2nd rnd pick, I think the Lakers would be crazy to pass on it. Don't forget, a big reason why Stanley Johnson hasn't lived up to expectations is because he wasn't given consistent playing time, and for the most part, had to compete for mins off the bench, against more established forwards. Before he was drafted, he was getting comparisons to players like Khawi Leonard and Ron Artest. The defense is there, he just needs to develop and work on his shooting (which is easier to learn than the other fundamentals he already possesses) . Josh Hart and Clevelands 1st rnd pick 2018 (this draft is deep, but let's be honest, what are the odds that late in the draft that we can draft another player with the caliber of a Kyle kuzma? ) . He could end up just being a 'late bloomer', it's not like he'd be the first one in the NBA.

Agree3 Disagree4

07 Mar 2018 19:18:49
Here is the thing. Johnson is a SF. Lakers have Ingram at the SF. If the Lakers get say PG13 he will be the starting SF or SG. So in theory Johnson would have a bench role on the Lakers. I do need to correct you. Johnson has been the Pistons starting SF all year unless he was injured. He isn't a bench player for the Pistons so he has gotten minutes just been struggling in Detroit. He would be a bench player for the Lakers. When you say he could develop his shot well he's in his 3rd year and next year he will be in his 4th. Johnson either has a shot or he doesn't. My opinion he will be a bench role player for a playoff team. I would keep Hart and pass on Johnson.

Lakers aren't trading Lonzo Ball for 2 first round picks just to dump Deng. Lakers will stretch Deng in the off season.
