Lakers Active Roster + Season averages
-Carlos Boozer (13ppg 7rpg, cannot be traded)
-Kobe Bryant (25ppg 5rpg 4 apg, not going to be traded)
-Jordan Clarkson (4.5 ppg 1 rpg)
-Ed Davis (6ppg 7rpg)
-Wayne Ellington (6ppg 2rpg)
-Ronnie Price (3ppg 3 apg)
-Jeremy Lin (10ppg 2rpg 4.8apg)
-Jordan Hill (12.8ppg 8rpg)
-Wesley Johnson (8ppg 3rpg)
-Robert Sacre (4ppg 2rpg)
-Nick Young (15ppg 2rpg)

Lakers mid-season trade:
-Ed Davis, Clippers 2nd round pick to CLEVELAND (lacks interior defense), for Brendan Haywood and their 2015 first via Memphis (1-5 protected, 15-30 protected-Cleveland will not be a lottery team 6-14 in order to keep this pick. They will lose it for nothing or they can trade it to a possible lottery team like the Lakers in exchange for a useful player)

Lakers 2015 Draft:
The team will not be bad enough to keep their top 5 protected, but they should be able to keep the Cleveland pick and fall in the 6-14 range in the lottery. Hypothetically speaking, let's just say they're able to get a pick 6-8.
-Draft: Stanley Johnson

Lakers 2015 Offseason:
-Roy Hibbert (4y, 60m similar to current salary)
-Goran Dragic (3y, 24m 1m more than this season)
-Wayne Ellington (2y, 2.5m)
-Steve Blake(2y, 4m)

Lakers pick up contract options on:
-Jordan Hill
-Jordan Clarkson
-Robert Sacre

Salary: 66m

PG: Goran Dragic/Steve Blake
SG: Kobe Bryant/Wayne Ellington/Jordan Clarkson
SF: Stanley Johnson/Nick Young
PF: Jordan Hill/Julius Randle/Ryan Kelly
C: Roy Hibbert/Robert Sacre

Not sure if a guaranteed playoff team in the west, however it is a competitive team and a better defensive team than the current. They can remain a .500 team and when Kobe's 24 million comes off the books, there is room to sign: Demar Derozan, Bradely Beal, Lance Stevenson, Dion Waiters possible max shooting guard replacement for Kobe or move Goran over to the 2 and bring in Mike Conley for the max.

We really need to hang on to Ed Davis unless he is part of a big deal getting LA someone very good because the Lakers will likely want to resign him for next year. Also, why trade for that Cleveland/Memphis first round pick when both Cleveland and Memphis have very good records that will likely result in a pick that is 15-30 so LA would be giving up Ed Davis for nothing.

Why sign Roy Hibbert for $15 million when Jordan Hill has better statistics and is younger for $9 million?

Goran Dragic is opting out of his contract because he knows he can at the least get $13 million on the open market.

Lakers-Hornets

Lakers get Lance Stephenson

Hornets get Jeremy Lin , Wayne Ellington and 2nd round pick

* Kobe has the capability to control such Stephenson's attitude and make him better, Stephenson can play multiple positions and could be built as a strong PG with a very Good defensive ability

L. Stephenson / R. Price
K. Bryant / J. Clarkson / X. Henry
W. Johnson / N. Young / R. Kelly
C. Boozer / E. Davis / J. Randle
J. Hill / R. Sacre

* Lance is not working well with the Hornets , seems like he is not motivated and they get the expiring contract of Jeremy Lin and a good shooter in Ellington

K. Walker / J. Lin / B. Roberts
G. Henderson / G. Neal / P. Hairston
M. Kidd-Gilchrist / W. Ellington
C. Zeller / M. Williams / N. Vonleh
A. Jefferson / B. Biyombo / J. Maxiell

Lance Stephenson would only make matters worse. He has a long term contract and is unable to perform in the lowly East for a team that should be doing well so why would he do better for the currently lowly Lakers especially when Kobe is only around for one more year?

Lance Stephenson plays SF by the way so I can't begin to understand the thinking behind putting him at PG to try to guard people like Westbrook and Chris Paul. Let's move a mercurial head-case SF to PG in a new system with Kobe Bryant and Los Angeles expectations. Nightmare scenario. No

I'm hoping Lakers swing a trade for Reggie Jackson. Thunder really would benefit from someone like J. Hill. If OKC truly wants to contend and not pay Jackson. Something like this would be viable.
Lakers get Reggie Jackson & Kendrick Perkins

Thunder get J. Hill and Ronnie Price

Now if Charlotte wants to get rid of Stephenson contract. Lakers can offer Jeremy Lin and Wesley Johnson. See if they bite.

2015 free agency is filled with centers that Lakers can go after Marc Gasol, Brook Lopez, Roy Hibbert, DeAndre Jordan, Nikola Vucevic, Omer Asik, Robin Lopez, Enes Kanter, Tyson Chandler.

Reggie Jackson/ J. Clarkson

Kobe Bryant/ Ellington

Stephenson/ Young

Randle/ R. Kelly

FA/ Davis

This is definitely believable and plausible but lacks for wisdom and longevity. Mitch and all others should stay far away from Lance Stephenson

I think Lance Stephenson would mesh well with the team especially Kobe. He can definitely fit that Ron Artest role. Lance Stephenson is not ready to be the man but he is definitely one great role player that can be a difference maker. Jackson is someone Lakers need to lock down and sign long term. He is not very injury prone and can keep up with the elite athletic PG. He does not need plays made for him. As for Perkins he is just a contract that ends next season.

Monroe or Gasol instead of whom? the Drummond trade would be necessary because of his inexpensive contract where his numbers are still close to Hill's for $8 million less, allowing for the signing of two close-to-max players in Rondo and Butler

Lakers 2015 Roster
Williams - Price - Clarkson

Johnson - Luc - Henry
Boozer - Davis - Kelly
Noel - Hill - Sacre

Nets 2015 Roster
Lin - Jack - Gutierrez
Wroten - Anderson - Brown
Johnson - Bogdanovic - Karasev
Garnett - Teletovic - Jefferson
Lopez - Plumlee - Jordan

Lakers do this because they can prepare for next season, they get a player who can play well in the backcourt with Kobe, and they get a rim protector who at best case scenario can take the reigns of the franchise after Kobe retires, they wouldn't have a lot of cap space next season, but they will have enough to resign some players on the roster and sign a couple veterans who want to win

Sixers do this because they get worse this year, they are planning on having a LONG but successful rebuilding process, they get Julius Randle who will look good next to Embiid in the front court, and they also get a pick for the future which might be high, they will have a better odds of being the worst team this year, thus getting them a better chance to get the number 1 pick, they also have Saric coming soon

The Nets do this because they need to get rid of money this season, They are paying useless money for being over the Luxury Tax and they are a horrible team, they get a late first round pick this year and they get Tony Wroten who is looking so far to be a pretty good young guard who has a ceiling of maybe at best 20 PPG on a Playoff team, they get Steve Nash who will just be an expiring contract but might be some veteran Tudor to the young players, and they get Jeremy Lin who is also an expiring contract but he may be a piece for the future, he most certainly won't be making as much money as he is this year, but he may be a good role player for Brooklyn in years to come

Feedback Please?

Negative feedback necessary. It would be brainless to give up three first round picks (Lakers top five protected, Randle, and Houston's 1st) for an overpaid and past-his-prime PG especially when the Lakers will be rid of Nash and Randle's contracts that add up to the same amount of Deron Williams' salary that could be spent on someone or someones who is/are actually worth all of that money. All of these trades on here involving Brooklyn are beyond foolish and short-sighted; Brooklyn has nobody worth trading for except Plumlee

The only trade I'd make this year is to move Nash's contract.

Celtics - Nash's contract and future second round pick.

Lakers - Jeff Green

And kudos to Kobe Bean Bryant for NOT passing MJ on ESPN. That's right Kobe your loyalty is to the Lakers and TWC.

Yep. Simple and possible

Pjrw

Possible if new CBA agreement goes down before free agency in summer of '16. and take out Monroe but throw in Kobe for one more year after summer '16. but a way shorter deal, at that point Kobe will finally take a page out of Gregg Pop & Spurs book to capture one last championship. Byron Scott also believed Kobe could play one more year after his deal is done in '16. With Kobe usually always being very ambiguous about future plans. the better question would be why wouldn't he want to sign a shorter deal with these names on that possible roster?

TRADE
Lakers gets Brook Lopez
Brooklyn gets Nash and Lin
Why it's possible: Lakers would search for a center on the next offseason. Lopez is a good option if stays health. Nash and Lin are both expiring and Lin would be a PG option for Nets since they desire to trade Deron Willians.

2015-2016 OFFSEASON
Sign Reggie Jackson 16M/4y
Opt Out from Hill and Sacre contracts
Re-sign Wesley Johnson and Wayne Wellington 1M/1y each.
Sign Gerald Green 8M/2y
Sign Kosta Joufos 2M/2y

2015-2016 ROSTER
Jackson - Clarkson
Bryant - Young - Wellington
Green - Johnson
Davis - Randle - Kelly
Lopez - Koufos

Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers deal

Brooklyn get Jordan Hill (team option next season @9 mil) , Wayne Ellington and 1st round pick 2016

LA. Lakers get Brook Lopez

if Kobe still want to compete do this,

Lakers sign Emeka Okafor midseason
insert Ed Davis on starting unit to pair with Brook Lopez and let Boozer and Young lead the bench

Jeremy Lin-Ronnie Price-Steve Nash(out)
Kobe Bryant-Jordan Clarkson-Xavier Henry(out)
Wesley Johnson-Nick Young
Ed Davis-Carlos Boozer-Julius Randle(out)
Brook Lopez-Emeka Okafor-Robert Sacre

next season Lin , Boozer , Nash contracts off the books

sign Rajon Rondo (4yr 13.5mil per)
sign Rodney Stuckey (2yr 5.5mil)

Rajon Rondo-Jordan Clarkson
Kobe Bryant-Rodney Stuckey-Xavier Henry
Wesley Johnson-Nick Young
Julius Randle-Ed Davis
Brook Lopez-Emeka Okafor-Robert Sacre

if they are to keep losing, they are going to get their pick owed to PHX and can select Stanley Johnson to play SF for them.

-At the trade deadline: trade Jeremy Lin, Houston's 1st round pick, our early 2nd round pick for Michael Carter Williams.

During 2015 summer:

Trade:
+top five pick (Jahlil Okafor or Karl Towns or Mudiay)
+Julius Randle
+Michael Carter Williams
+Jordan Hill

for Anthony Davis

Sign Rajon Rondo for $16 million
Sign Jimmy Butler $14 million
Resign Ed Davis $6 million
Resign Wes Johnson $1 million
Sign Thomas Robinson $1 million

2016 Depth

Rajon Rondo/Jordan Clarkson
Kobe Bryant/Nick Young
Jimmy Butler/Wes Johnson
Thomas Robinson/Ryan Kelly
Anthony Davis/Ed Davis

2016 Summer

Sign Kevin Durant for Max
Resign Anthony Davis for Max

will be in need of a Center/PF to put next to Anthony Davis so perhaps signing Javale McGee or David Lee or Ryan Anderson would fit and be affordable

2016-2017 Season Depth

Rajon Rondo
Jimmy Butler
Kevin Durant

Rondo may cost more than $16 million but not much more, especially if he is getting to play with Anthony Davis and potentially Kevin Durant. But yes please criticize the Rondo bit where his salary can easily be adjusted making this scenario still plausible and the absolute best route for the Lakers to take.
