Now that we have Ingram.
Sign Whiteside to max
bring Noah as back up center or Speights.
Sign Bazemore to 6six man.
Try and still Livingston from WGS
Resign Clarkson and Huertas.
Trade nick young. Sign cheap Bench warmer to complete roster.
PG- Russell, Livingston, Huertas
SG- Clarkson, Lou will, Chris Johnson
SF- Ingram, Bazemore, A. Brown
PF- Randle, Nance, Kelly
C- Whiteside, Noah/ Speights, Zubac
Develop this team and win as many games as we can and make the team attractive for 2017 offseason. we should have cap left after building this roster to add to next years. we may be contenders in 2 years. If we add a Superstar next years offseason.

So Lakers and Kings in talk for Russell. Only player I would want is Cousins. So this is what I would like to see.
Lakers get Cousins and Gay
Kings get Russell, Brown, Randle
Kings only do this if they are ready to do a total rebuild and do a salary dump. After all they did trade down in the lottery to get more young players.
26 Jun 2016 05:16:01
Sign Hassan and Parsons.
PG: Russell/ Huertas
SG: Clarkson/ Williams/ Jabari Brown
SF: Parsons/ Ingram/ Anthony Brown
PF: Randle/ Nance Jr. / Zach Auguste
C: Whiteside/ Black/ Zubac.
26 Jun 2016 06:08:33
Much rather start Ingram than parsons
26 Jun 2016 06:54:57
Sign Bazemore instead of Parsons do he can be our six man & let Ingram take the starting spot & become the star we all hoping he becomes. Add Livingston as back up point guard
26 Jun 2016 03:46:59
Clarkson 4y 54m
Whiteside 4y 80m
Whiteside Zubac Black
Durant didn't give Lakers a meeting might change.
25 Jun 2016 18:35:40
Day 1 of free agency
Horford 4 year 70 mill or
Whiteside Max deal 4 year 80 mill
Now we have a good starting 5
Day 2 of free agency need to find a combo Sgthat could play sf if needed. derozan would work great if we can get him great He plays good d and great mid range game.
This team in my opinion is #5 in the west along with a good deep team 2 years from now top 3 in the west!
Russell clarkson huertus
Ingram brown young
Whiteside black Zubac.
25 Jun 2016 21:37:46
Derozan doesn't play defense
26 Jun 2016 00:56:44
I say trade sell buy cash out what ever we got to do bring DeRozan and George to the team those are the only 2 guys worth getting this year
26 Jun 2016 01:14:01
Trade Roy Hibbert - Lou Williams - Robert Sacre - Brandon bass - nick young and deangelo Russell all these guys Mitch got for us all bad moves if he doesn't do right this season give him the swift kick in the ass and tell him adios mother @$?!er and who ever tells me look for another team to root for that's the stupidest thing I ever heard I'm giving my advice how to fix the team not bad mouth it I've always been a laker fan die hard since I was a kid but when they suck hey they suck if a player comes to the lakers either draft or trade if they suck then they suck like Jeremy Lin he sucks evening he's a laker a bull or a hornet ext. he still sucks shaq when he was on any team he was great because shaq was a great player and we was blessed to have him as a laker. So if a player sucks as a player he will suck as a laker as well
26 Jun 2016 02:17:57
It is reported that DeRozan isn't meeting with any teams except the raptors so it's unlikely he goes to the lakers or anywhere else.
26 Jun 2016 06:16:22
Paulfatjoes- your hate on Mitch is silly, he's one of the top GM's in the league and we wouldn't be able to find anyone better anyways. A couple of bad contracts doesn't make him a bad GM. Oh and your knowledge on who we can actually trade is pretty bad. Sacre, Hibbert, Bass are all off contract. As for the other 3, Young can go but isn't worth anything, Lou is alright off the bench if he plays for the team and buss has come out and put him in the fire players they want to keep from last year and Russell is our future so I can't see any of them going.
25 Jun 2016 15:11:39
T. Mosgov 3yrs 30 million 10 yr
J. Clarkson 4yrs 50 million 12.5 yr
C. Parsons 2yrs 40 million.
25 Jun 2016 16:58:02
20mil a year for parsons? No. Especially when we have Ingram now.
25 Jun 2016 20:01:52
I'd prefer to just start zubac instead of giving mozgov 10million
26 Jun 2016 02:18:25
I'd pay Mozgov 5-7 mil at the most
25 Jun 2016 12:31:59
Sign and trade Clarkson and brown for buddy hield
we get a perfect shooting guard for Luke Walton system one that doesn't need to handle the ball.
I'm not saying buddy is worth both players combined.
But we get his low salary for many years and can get other players in.
Clarkson will cost at least 12 mil.
Idk, what you think.
25 Jun 2016 13:21:39
Aren't we going to have to pay hield in a few years anyways? Whether we do it to a player now or in 4 years doesn't really matter. Besides I'd like to see how Clarkson plays in 'Luke's system'.
25 Jun 2016 09:31:09
Lakers get okafor
Sixers get russel.
25 Jun 2016 13:22:54
If lakers wanted Okafor, they would have picked him in the draft. A trade between the two isn't going to happen
25 Jun 2016 08:50:13
Trade: Randle, Lou and Brown to CLE for Love.
Sign: Durant, Whiteside, Speights, Crawford and Seth Curry.
25 Jun 2016 18:01:31
I'd love for it to happen but I highly doubt KD is going to sign with the lakers and getting Kevin love I'm not a fan of I do like the idea you said a couple days ago about getting back ariza he's a hustler and great defender good shooter too for a descent price now we got Ingram and this new 7 foot center correct me if I'm wrong from Serbia he's got the height and a tough guy look I think he'll be a great rim protector and post up center on offense like I said before give him to shaq and Kareem to train him and he just might be pretty good I still want to see young and Russell out of La though but they have to be traded separately because they can't be on the same team and I pray this is mitch's final year as GM bring back Phil
25 Jun 2016 18:23:34
Pauljoes- I think we are perfectly fine with Mitch at the moment. He got Walton as coach & did well in the draft. let's see what he can do in free agency. I am not expecting him to hit a home run with free agents like get Lebron or KD but get players that can help the team win.
25 Jun 2016 01:33:58
Trade Lou, Young and Brown to Houston for Ariza.
Sign: Horford, Derozan, Anderson and Rivers.
24 Jun 2016 17:38:39
Philly and LA Lakers
Noel for Deangelo Russell
I think Noel is a better fit next to Julius Randle because of his defense and athleticism.
24 Jun 2016 23:40:29
Makes no sense. Lakers drafted Ingram to play next to Randle and without Russell they would be lacking a point guard. I wish the Sixers would just trade Noel and Okafor already to somebody else.
25 Jun 2016 08:46:42
But Russell will be a better player than Noel. And you can find shot blockers every free agency
24 Jun 2016 17:32:22
Resign Clarkson, Huertas
Sign DJ Augustin
Sign Kent Bazemore
Sign Marvin Williams
Sign Timofey Mozgov
PG: D'Angelo Russell, DJ Augustin, Marcelo Huertas
SG: Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams
SF: Brandon Ingram, Kent Bazemore, Anthony Brown
PF: Julius Randle, Marvin Williams, Larry Nance
C: Hassan Whiteside, Timofey Mozgov, Ivica Zubac.
24 Jun 2016 18:29:49
Bazemore won't sign with the lakers just to be a backup
25 Jun 2016 17:00:37
Yes he would, he's a role player like Lou Williams. Hell get around 7-8mil.
24 Jun 2016 16:05:44
TOR/ SAC/ LAL
TOR get Demarcus Cousins
SAC get Lou Williams, Demarre Carroll and Julius Randle + future 1st from TOR
LAL get Jonas Valanciunas.
24 Jun 2016 21:56:05
Your an idiot. why would we get rid of a player than won 6th man of the year and someone as good as julius randle for a nobody. lmao. your crazy, if anything we should get demarcus cousins and I still don't like that trade.
24 Jun 2016 15:56:04
Sign Derozan and Whiteside to a max
PG: Russell/ Clarkson
SG: Derozan/ Williams
SF: Ingram/ Brown
PF: Randle/ Nance
C: Whiteside/ Zubac.
24 Jun 2016 16:20:46
I don't think the lakers should sign DeRozan as they should be more focased on developing the backcourt of Russell and clarkson
24 Jun 2016 14:14:52
Ingram, Russell, Nick Young
2. Malachi Richardson
4. Kosta Koufas
5. Willie Cauley Stein

Cousins, Gay, 2017 2nd

24 Jun 2016 06:09:07
Detroit: Ivaca Zubac Nick Young Jordan Clarkson
Los Angeles: John Henson MCW Marcus Morris Stanley Johnson Johnny O Bryant Greg Monroe
Milwaukee: Larry Nance Brandon Bass Roy Hibbert DET 2017 2nd round Marcelo Huertas.
24 Jun 2016 05:53:46
Sixers, Lakers, Suns, Grizzles had good drafts.
Sixers got Simmons (best player in class) and 2 wings who can shoot
Lakers got the 2nd best player and a first round talent in Zubas
Suns got Bender and Chriss thanks to the Kings
Grizzles took advantage of Baldwin and Davis falling.
Maker was my favorite player in the draft but 10 is too high.
Kings were high when drafting Papa Johns.
24 Jun 2016 07:29:34
Happy with Zubac, but was hoping Davis would fall.
23 Jun 2016 23:42:14
Reports that the Lakers wanted to trade Russel for top 5 because they really like Dunn but didn't want to not take Ingram. Slight chance they might take Dunn. If the sixers make a trade in time w Celtics Ingram might fall in their lap too.
23 Jun 2016 18:40:37
*In case we strike out on Durant or Derozan*
Russel for Noel, 24th and 26th pick (throw in Anthony Brown and 2nd rounder for deal or to move up)
Draft: Ingram, Bembry, Valentine or Hammonds
Free Agents: Clarkson, Crabbe, Dudley, and Noah
Resign: Clarkson, and Huertas if we go with Hammonds over Valentine
Ingram, Bembry, Dudley
Noel, Noah, Black
We remain financially flexible to make run at Westbrook and other big names next year and still have solid young core to build around.
23 Jun 2016 19:43:54
Trading Russell makes no sense for the Lakers. I think the Sixers are going to get Kris Dunn at #3 for Noel. Noel will go to the Celtics. Sixers get the point guard they need that way.
23 Jun 2016 13:32:55
Butler - 2nd pick and Clarkson
Bulls - Toronto
Gibson and 14# - 9#
Start rebuilding with Ingram, lot of space for FA this year and the next.
23 Jun 2016 20:36:30
23 Jun 2016 09:36:59
Russell/ Clarkson/ Huertas
DeRozan/ Williams/ Blue
Ingram/ Bazemore/ Brown
Randle/ Nance/ Black
Sign DeRozan 22m (only give him a 2 year contract)
Sign Whiteside 20m
Resign Clarkson 12m
Sign Bazemore 5m (idk what he's worth so if this is too little or too much let me know)
Bring up Blue
Trade Young and 32nd for 24th pick and draft Maker
P. s. I don't think DeRozan is a good fit but he's the only star caliber player willing to sign so we should take him.
23 Jun 2016 19:03:53
Why would DeRozan agree to only a 2 year contract?
23 Jun 2016 06:49:57
Philly drafts Ben Simmons
L. A drafts Ingram
3 way trade between Philly Boston and LA
Philly gets deangelo Russell
Boston gets okafor
Lakers get 3rd draft pick and takes Chris Dunn
LA draft thon maker 32nd
La signs derozan
Maker/ free agent center.
23 Jun 2016 07:21:12
3 rookies starting? that will take us nowhere past 15 Ws.
23 Jun 2016 14:25:59
Never said maker had to start. Maybe pick up Horford to start at center.
23 Jun 2016 04:26:13
Russell and Williams
#1 pick and Noel or Oakfor
Russell, Randle and Williams
I know it won't happen but it would be good young core.
23 Jun 2016 10:01:54
If u wanna get the first pick, trade Randle because Simmons is a pf.
23 Jun 2016 03:33:38
Clarkson 4y 54m
Durant 2y 48m Player option
Whiteside 4y 80m.
22 Jun 2016 23:06:57
Just around 24h for draft day and all rumours seem to point to Ingram as future Laker.
So by what I have been reading, Laker future is being built around the folowing players:
D Rusell, Clarkson, Randle and . Ingram. With potential backup players in Lou Williams, Nance Jr and Huertas.
All the rest are expendable IMO.
So that leaves are giant hole in the C position and the best FA candidates to fill it are: Whiteside (would require max. contract), Horford (C/ PF-near max. ) Biyombo (C/ PF 10-14mill) & Mahinmi (10?) .
Lakers should try to get at least two of the above.
Secondly, the SF position should not be the sole responsibility of a rookie. Best options I believe are: Batum (max. contract), Bazemore (15?) and/ or maybe someone more veteran such as Jared Dudley (WAS) good % in 3s this season.
Lakers should try to get at least 2 of the above.
Batum/ Ingram/ Dudley
I would not sign Derozan, quality player but is it what the Lakers need? . Nor H. Barnes-where was he in the last 3 games?
23 Jun 2016 05:23:18
Yes derozan is what we need *cough* all star caliber talent *cough*.
Although if we don't go after him bazemore would be my choice.
23 Jun 2016 19:51:50
Yes the Lakers need Derozan. If the Lakers don't get talent like Derozan & Horford they will not make the playoffs. Young core is good but with Ingram developing its going to take awhile to get enough wins to make a playoff run without an extra boost of talent.
22 Jun 2016 19:25:19
Sign whiteside Max 4 year 80 mil
Sign derozan 4 year 80 mill
resign clarkson 4 year 40 mill
Draft aj hammons
Get rid of nick young
Sign green 1 year 5 mill
Resign black and heurtus 1 year 1.5 mill.
22 Jun 2016 16:57:26
Philly gets #2
Pacers get Okafor, lakers pick, Covington, Russel, Young, lakers rd 2
Lakers get George.
22 Jun 2016 17:54:48
Couple problems. Pacers aren't trading Paul George and you have a Lakers pick going to the Pacers other than the 32nd. What pick is that? Cause other than the #2 going to the Sixers which you have the Lakers have no picks to trade.
22 Jun 2016 20:07:35
Maybe he meant lakers 32nd pick and future 2nd round pick?
22 Jun 2016 22:28:03
Mowdi- which is why I am glad that the draft is tomorrow. Lakers will select Ingram and we move on.
22 Jun 2016 15:59:40
Keep Russell and the pick. Need to keep young core of Russell, Clarkson, Randle, Ingram (#2 pick) together.
Sign Whiteside to max because he fits Walton's system. Tall, defensive player who knows his limits on offense. To be realistic, KD and Lebron aren't coming to LA and we aren't trading for PG13. Try to sign Derozan to max deal but please no Harrison Barnes. Played awful in the finals and is certainly not worth anything near the max. Also, maybe sign Alan Anderson. Not very good on offense but he's a vet who can come off the bench and play good on-ball defense, which is what Lakers need.
As for the #32 pick, I really think AJ Hammons from Purdue is a good pick. Good player with an all around offensive game.
Stretch Young because of his salary. I say keep Lou Will bc he's a veteran scorer off the bench.
Russell/ Clarkson/ Huertas
Derozan/ Lou Williams
Whiteside/ Hammons/ Black.
22 Jun 2016 12:46:19
Lakers 2016/ 17
1. D'Angelo Russell and #2 Pick (Ingram) to Clippers for Chris Paul
2. Nick Young and Julius Randle to Sacramento for WCS
PG - Paul, Hinrich
SG - Lee, Lou Williams
SF - Durant, Barnes
PF - Lebron, Nance
C - WCS, Black.
22 Jun 2016 14:04:03
There is no way this is going to happen. This is real life, not 2k
22 Jun 2016 12:32:08
LAL get Kyle Oquinn and Future 2nd rd pick
NYK get 32nd pick and Lou Williams.
22 Jun 2016 14:22:53
I can tell you're a Knicks fan
