    Do you think Miami would trade Whiteside for Deng, 1st round pick, and 2nd round pick?

    Would we want to do that?

          That contract for JR was a HUGE mistake and I knew it the minute he signed it. That and Tristan Thompson’s contract were total bs Lebron not being as smart as he thinks he is with his conflict of interest agency. May not get out of the first round and its his fault playing gm, agent, coach, entrepreneur guy etc. etc.

            Lebron getting a pass for the Klutch Sports nonsense is laughable. But the contract JR signed with the Knicks was less that 1/3rd of the Cavs deal and he mailed that one in too. I’m sensing a pattern here.

            IIRC they were still gonna be over the cap if they let those 2 dudes walk so it ain’t like paying them prevented the Cavs from signing somebody else…it was just money. And let’s not forget…they finally got Cleveland a title immediately following. Gilbert is a boob but at least he ain’t afraid to write the check.

            As for the demise of the Cavs…that happened the moment Kyrie announced he wanted out. Not sure why anybody is surprised at what’s happening now…

      Just looked at his contract. I knew he had two more years but didn’t realize it was at 25.5 and 27m. Haven’t followed what his deal is on/off the court too closely, was wonder if it was as simple as a change of systems? But that price tag is way too much whatever the case even dumping Deng.

    Nerlens Noel suspended for 5 games 

    SMH…

    “Dallas Mavericks center Nerlens Noel has been suspended five games without pay for violating the league’s anti-drug program, the NBA announced on Tuesday. The program states that players are suspended five games after a third positive test for marijuana.

    As a restricted free agent, Noel declined a four-year, $70 million offer from the Mavericks last summer, countering by asking for a maximum contract. According to sources, Mavs owner Mark Cuban immediately pulled the offer off the table and never made another one, with Noel eventually signing a one-year, $4.2 million qualifying offer after changing agents.”

    Dude is a bust on so many levels. I’m still offended about the idea of trading Julius for him. lol

      The dude just cost himself even more Money. After watching him play I’m not interested. He maybe long and athletic but he weights 220. He gave up 30 pounds of muscle to Julius and 60 pounds to Brook. They both were bouncing him around at will. You need more in your back pocket if you are going to play center in the NBA or the bigger guys are going to just back you down.

      Definitely a stupid move by Nerlens. I would still sign the kid to minimum 1-year contract. He looked lost in the Mavs horrible offense. Mavs are a team players go to see their careers crash.

    The Phoenix Suns prefer to explore the trade market on the expiring contract of Greg Monroe before proceeding on contract-buyout talks, league sources told ESPN.

    The Suns acquired the veteran big man as part of a trade package for guard Eric Bledsoe with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday and decidedly value Monroe’s $17.8 million contract as a trade asset on the market. The Bucks included a protected 2018 first-round pick and a protected second-round pick in the deal.

      Trade Deng with future picks for Monroe, they can immediately waive and stretch his contract to open up the roster spot they need. A young building team such as Phoenix or Chicago should worry more about acquiring assets then the salary. They have to reach the minimum anyways and can do so without clogging the roster with overpaid vets.

      Just waive & stretch Deng this summer. Anything else is just gonna needlessly waste assets in order to dump his ridiculous contract. Thanks alot Jimmy n Mitch..long gone but still fukkin things up…

      • LakerTom (Publisher) 1:57 PM on November 8, 2017 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        A lot will depend on who is available as an elite free agent this summer.

        I think we can still add one vet max and one young max with $65M cap space after waiving and stretching Deng for $7M over 5 years.

        That’s a hit that will hurt for 4 years after next summer so hopefully the front office can get somebody to bite on Randle and Clarkson.

        But if there is only one elite player available -- Cousins, for example, I might be tempted to keep both Clarkson and Randle if they continue to play this well.

          Watching the development of both Clarkson and Randle, especially when they are on the court together, I don’t know why we wouldn’t want to keep them. The more they develop, the higher their value will be in a future trade with some disgruntled veteran. I don’t believe that MagicRob will pull off a double max signing this summer anyway,

    DEREK CARR IS THE KOBE BRYANT OF THE NFL 

    Great article about a great person and competitor who is Mamba approved!
    Not a more well like person in all of sports. Everything you want in a leader of your team, company, and community.

    “Since anyone can remember, the Raiders quarterback could not get enough of Kobe Bryant. He was addicted to the fadeaways at the buzzer, the snarl, the scowl, the villain persona. Carr first met his idol in junior high before a Lakers-Rockets game in Houston and, for Christmas, his brother David gave him a signed Kobe jersey that still hangs on a bedroom wall.

    Eighty-one? The five championships? Carr was glued to it all. Whereas Kobe repeatedly annihilated one high school teammate in games to 100—their closest duel being 100-12—Derek never has a problem throwing disrespectful jams over nephews half his age.

    So there was Carr last season, after the first of seven fourth-quarter comebacks, declaring to the masses that he’s driven by a “Mamba Mentality.” And moments later, the self-anointed Black Mamba approved on Twitter.”

    The Two Men Who Make Money From the N.B.A. in Summer 

    “Featuring 24 of the league’s 30 teams and the top five picks from the recent N.B.A. draft, the Las Vegas summer league is the most important event on the N.B.A.’s summer calendar. “We are the Burning Man of basketball,” LeGarie said, later trying out an analogy involving the Mos Eisley cantina from “Star Wars.”

    N.B.A. teams are testing their rookies, and scouting players for the end of the bench. Foreign teams are searching for players who are not good enough for the N.B.A. but good enough for Greece or South Korea. Executives are here to wheel and deal, owners are here to meet with one another, and the news media is here to talk with sources.”

      The NBA has done a great job turning the Vegas Summer League into a major league sports event. The league has dominated sports media and given pro basketball fans a solid week of games and front office dealing to blog and talk about. Unfortunately, we are soon approaching the 2-month doldrums before next season really starts.

    The trade will be finalized on Monday. The Celtics will receive a package of picks that includes the Sixers’ No. 3 overall pick this year, sources said.

    I remember being bummed that we missed out on Marcus Smart in the 2014 draft….

    I’m sure there are some that thought he was a bust up until now….

    I feel the same way about DAR now and think the critisism of him up to this point is ridiculous….

    The gaurd position takes the longest to develop…

      I think bigs take longer to develop, but they ALL do unless you’re a special, elite player.

      Well, it’s Smart’s third full season in the Association, Russell is only a year behind. While I would argue a bit more has been asked of D’Angelo, up to this point, Smart has never been anything but the consummate teammate. If Russell could have as much of an impact on the game, in any fashion, as Smart does consistently with his defense and hustle that would be a welcome addition.

      Criticism from fans is simply observation of the final product. Criticisms from the media are not much better, though I do put stock into older players who displayed above average Hoops IQ. Criticism from the coaching staff is not ridiculous in any fashion, take the note, as they say in the theatre. There has been a fair amount in regards to the young man from all three fronts. But he’s a Laker and, as I’ve said, he did show more than little improvement (most of all and most importantly I think, in maturity). Here’s hoping he takes another step forward.

        Had the advertising/hype been less flamboyant, status quo might be palatable. But all the Magic Johnson comparrisons, the apparent “wowing” of the brass, all failed to materialize. Luke Walton has literally parroted Byron Scott in his assessment of Russell, and, again, if he were all “that”, we wouldn’t be looking to draft a PG.

          It’s one reason I try not to tune into too much of that. the videos, the footage, all of it is versus amateurs either going one-and -done like you or aren’t good enough to and need more years of NCAA to see if they can supplant raw latent with better fundamentals.

          You get to the NBA and it starts to feel like going from single A ball to the Show, lots of these guys could come out of college so much stronger if they went just 3 years a la Magic. Let that body better fully develop, hone that craft. But money is money… NCAA isn’t worth the wait for anyone with enough hype.

          Anyhow, I hope a little continuity in a system he likes along with a summer of work will see him on the right path to taking another decent, to big, step forward. Barring a stellar trade I’d just as soon roll the dice one more year and just try and shed salary. I’m certain if a ‘can’t say no’ deal crosses the desk that trigger will be pulled. Trading to trade….naw, I’ve had enough of that. He’s cheap for another year.

          The Celtics are much further along in their rebuilding process, thereby making it easier for a young player like Smart to develop, not that D’Angelo Russell isn’t an overall better player than him anyway. Mr. Tate needs to quit with this point guard bullsh!t because if he knew anything about Russell, he would know that he’s a combo guard and that a player like Ball will allow him to play off the ball more, where he’s more comfortable shooting and passing. Also, whether it’s Ball, Fox or whomever, this player will be a ROOKIE, so those shortsighted folks who want to pawn Russell off on anther team might think twice about that. Mr. Tate’s suggestion that we swap WCS and Zubac and swap Russell for the #5 crapshoot is laughable.

          that’s what you get for believing “news” to be actual solid information.

          it’s television. the internet is television. by definition, it’s full; of actors and writers, it’s entertainment. it doesn’t have to be facts. it just needs a few facts to keep the stink of reality in it, then everyone makes up their own stories and sells them to viewers.

      DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS

      Russell doesn’t play defense. Nwaba will unseat him -- if he’s not traded. There’s even talk about playing Ingram at the 2. He’s not cheap. He’s costly -- turnovets, boneheaded drives into traffic, trying impossible passes when a simple one would have been more effective. If he’s traddd, it won’t be “trading to trade” it will be to improve the team.

      The “hype” for DAR was brought on by the previous regime. They’ve been shown the door now so I won’t dwell on it too much any more. The new regime seems to have the proper perspective on him at this point. You don’t hear all that face of the franchise stuff outta this new group…

      Benjamin -- if you read my post you will notice the hyphen segue into what I mean by “costly”.

      Keen -- Russell, hype notwithstanding, was advertised as, drafted as, and is still listed as a point guard.
      http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/r/russeda01.html

      HE DOES NOT PLAY DEFENSE. what part of that can’t you get you malformed brain around? Were you dropped on your head as a child? If he were expected to blossom in the near future, there wouldn’t be a mad rush for Ball, Fultz or Fox. The focus would be on Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum or Malik Monk.

      Patience? Screw you and your c**k and bull story about how it was “time” for the Lakers to suck, anc your blithering idiocy about the 2011 CBA and the CP3 trade. All the praise you heaped on the Buss Boy and his plan B.

      Put your big boy pants on over your pull ups and worry about Oscar and not Tate.

        So what. Tim Duncan was listed as a power forward. WTF

      Loved the fact that the winning shot was from an “old-school” Center with fundamentals.

            Can’t help but believe that alotta that might be attributable to the Mamba influence, keen.

            Sorry, I actually was referring to Kawhi, not Marc.

              Kawhi’s my favorite NBA player right now. Do the Spurs really have much more than him? During the regular season they seemed deep, but Pau’s old, Lamarcus is limited IMO (glad he snubbed his nose at us in hindsight), Tony Parker and Manu are old, and the rest are just role players. What am I missing here?

              Yeah, he’s become one of my favorites, too. Not sure what’s happened to LA’s game, but it sure seems to have dropped off considerably this season for some reason. And u’re right, as it stands now, Kawhi is the ONLY star player on that Spurs roster.
