    BRING THE GOAT EAGLE BACK TO HIS HOME NEST.
    It would be a complete 180 from Mystery Star Chasing but would bring tons of Christmas Joy to all of LakerNation.

    Well, those of us who thought we'd get off to a bad start weren't exactly well received either. Lol

    8-9 wins would be great though so hopefully you were correct and we can snatch 3 of the next five games.

    I'd definitely be interested in that Chicago deal.

    i don't remember that. i fully expected a bad start when i saw the schedule, and i don't remember many folks thinking we were going to win a lot early?

    i think 3 out of 5 is doable and makes the season salvageable from that point forward. 20-game mark, ftw.

    yeah, if we would take on salary, i think even bevs/nunn/jones/one more min is enough to get derozan by himself. just bevs/nunn gets vucevic. obviously the bulls would try to get picks, but i'd hold out as long as we're not spiraling.

    Some interesting trade candidates and buzz per Scotto with HoopsHype

    Los Angeles Lakers: Russell Westbrook


    Atlanta Hawks: John Collins and Bogdan Bogdanovic

    If the knee checks out, Bogdan for Bev, Nunn, & a 2nd.

    Brooklyn Nets: Joe Harris

    Unfortunately i don't see a path to Curry or Harris unless they blow it up and big fish get involved.

    Charlotte Hornets: Gordon Hayward and Kelly Oubre


    [​IMG]

    Detroit Pistons: Bojan Bogdanovic

    Indiana Pacers: Myles Turner
    [​IMG]

    Los Angeles Clippers: Robert Covington

    I think they sorely miss Pat Bev's leadership. Hell, they can have a 2nd round pick too.


    New York Knicks: Derrick Rose, Immanuel Quickley, Evan Fournier

    Fournier, Rose, Reddish. No picks

    Orlando Magic: Terrence Ross and Gary Harris
    Still think there's something worth exploring with Ross and Bamba

    San Antonio Spurs: Josh Richardson and Jakob Poeltl

    Worth checking out the link. There's something for every team

    I wonder if we could get Robert Covington. He isn’t the best 1on1 defender in the league but he is an excellent help defender and can shoot a bit.

    Would the clippers take Pat Bev for a swap?

    Pincus explores what he thinks is "the best realistic trade for the Lakers to vault back into contention"

    https://bleacherreport.com/articles...-would-make-the-los-angeles-lakers-contenders

    The meat and potatoes of this 3 team'er...

    The Lakers trade Russell Westbrook, Patrick Beverley, Kendrick Nunn and two future first-round picks (2027 and 2029).
    The Brooklyn Nets trade Kyrie Irving to the Los Angeles Lakers.
    The Detroit Pistons trade Bojan Bogdanović, Alec Burks and Nerlens Noel to the Los Angeles Lakers.


    I want no part of Kyrie. In NBA 2k, that's a good return.

    A few interesting tidbits in the piece...

    Is there, or has there been some talk of Chicago wanting to offload DeRozan's '23-'24 salary? And why would they off Vucevic who is expiring?

    Don’t want Kyrie any more. But I like the Bogdanovic Burks and Noel idea.

    there hasn't been, but if they're out of the playoff picture in december, they should be thinking about it. as for vucevic--him being expiring is why they might want to either extract value or simply be ok with moving on. expiring contracts on good players are actually tricky for the team holding them. if you really wanted them and they really wanted to play there, you'd probably have extended (especially if they're currently highly paid). it's possible vucevic and turner and whomever all get extended, but if they don't, i expect them to be traded.

    i'm still pissed that both utah and SA tried to bleed us when they could have just made a win/win deal. and i know everyone thinks ainge is a super genius who fully intended to compete, but he did not. they will not be happy if they miss out on a top pick this year because the core of clarkson/markannen/sexton/olynyk overachieved. because that team is going nowhere long-term. anyway, if i were lakers management, i'd have a long memory for this kind of crap. "perplexed" indeed.

    Yeah. Several teams are going to wish they had just made reasonable deals.

    So this completely depends upon Chicago thinking that our package is "good" as in Westbrook. I think Russ is proving he can help some teams still and plays what many consider to be "exciting ball" but I see it being a small-market team. Not so much Chi-town. Teams with no chance to land a KD, or AD etc and will take the next best or a couple tiers down. That's why I see our deals involving him being with Charlotte, San Antonio or Indy.

    westbrook's expiring salary wherever he goes. this requires chicago wanting to punt the season and get off 27 million in salary.

    Chicago signed LaVine for like 5/6 years.
    If they use such assets like DeMar and Vuc is to upgrade the team now, not blow it up. That's a straight robbery. They have a good team, is just not clicking, so I imagine if they move someone is to try something different but at the same level

    Whenever we think of a trade, we need to think what's in it for the other team. There's no indication that the Bulls are blowing it up. If there is, than let's entertain such offers

    Right, and Chicago is a big market team. Throw away 2 seasons to save 27mil? Made the playoffs last year, sure they got bounced in the first round by the Bucs but still a "good" team. Tanking ain't an option they owe their '23 FRP, they are out of the Vic sweepstakes.

    Indiana trade still makes the most sense for both teams: Indiana ain't going anywhere unless they can get another lottery pick to pair with Halliburton. Turner/Hield is really messing up their tank.

    Looking thru teams Turner's and Hield's numbers are surprisingly good both in regular and advanced metrics. The West is really open this year and I don't think any team looks scary (frankly the last truly great team seemed to me to be the Lakers post-bubble but injuries killed them: I mean look at how well Kuzma, Caruso, and KCP have played since then). With the growth of Walker and Reaves, Lakers could have lineups like Turner/AD/Lebron/Walker/Reaves or AD/Lebron/Walker/Reaves/Hield that would run teams out of the gym.

    It would also fit with what Ham like to do (2 centers who can shoot 3's) and what worked in the bubble. 2 centers (Turner/Bryant), AD/Wenyen at the 4, Lebron with JTO/Brown at 3, Walker/Hield at the 2, Reaves/Schroder at the 1. Really like this trade more I look at and it would fit with what ham like to do. 2 deep at every spot, keep everyone minutes in the 30's at the most. Flexibility with switching/drop coverage
