    So if the Lakers keep Isaiah and manage to sign Boogie we would have:

    Cousin IT!

    The Trade Then:

    Dallas Mavericks Receive: C Nerlens Noel

    Philadelphia 76ers Receive: C Andrew Bogut; SF Justin Anderson; 2017 second-round pick (Jawun Evans selected at No. 39); 2020 second-round pick

    The Trade now:

    Mavs get: Lakers re-sign Bogut and Vander Blue then trade them along with Ennis.

    Lakers get LT’s Noel.

    Just so he stops. Sound good?

    A rookie contract is 2 plus option. If BI, Kuzma and Lonzo become as good as assumed, in 3 years time Lakers will just barely afford to keep all 3 much less add a superstar. Now is the only time the Lakers can afford 2 superstars with 1 (or both) gone in 3 years to make room.

    Get Lebron now. Let him retire in 3 years just in time for the youngins to blossom (and get paid).

    Basically what that was was a young coach freaking out and going ballistic on his team during the game.

      Does this launch the D into contender status?

      Not so sure Dre will like this over the long-run.

      Dang, Peter. Didn’t think you would be naive enough to consider a trade for Blake to be anything but a hit batter. Sure ain’t a home run in my book. :-)

        Are we thinking that we are gonna sign PG and LeBron and that’s why we move Clarkson and or Randle for the space?

        • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:14 PM on January 29, 2018 Permalink | Log in to Reply

          You don’t move anybody just for the space unless it’s for PG or LBJ.
          But if you can move Clarkson for a player who is better, you do it.

          Growing the team organically doesn’t mean you don’t trade anybody.
          You always look to upgrade every position when opportunity arises.

          Like trading Ariza for Artest. Bradley for Clarkson would be an upgrade.

          Dedmon and Belinelli for Clarkson would also be an upgrade.
          Noel and Curry for Clarkson would also be an upgrade.

          Both would also help create cap space for the future.
          To be used on superstars or other free agents, including our own.

            Ariza was traded for Artest? When? lol.

            Artest replaced Ariza would be the correct phrase.

            • LakerTom (Publisher) 4:53 PM on January 29, 2018 Permalink

              Yes, it was a free agency decision caused by Ariza’s agent wanting too much.

            If you remember I proposed Klay initially so yes to that.
            PG over next year’s BI, no. LA gets skilled player at a much lower price.
            LBJ is welcome anytime.
            Noel? And you worry about Cousins character? Only at 5-6M otherwise no.
            Dedmon? Heck no.

    Deng/Zubac/Caruso for Cousins/Rondo.

    Deng, Zubac and Boogie don’t play anyway.
    Pels get their C, Lakers get backup PG and Cousin’s Bird rights plus medical exemption.

      Mahorn was WAY more dangerous than Blake.

      anyway, that was a joke attack on the locker room. where was the blood? where are the injuries that will keep guys out for days, weeks and months? that was just posing and preening. all of those guys are wusses, especially Blake.

      When you parse what Lonzo really said, there was really no vote of confidence for Luke or praise for him as a coach or his style of play. Lonzo is not exactly aomebody who expands on any comments so I wouldn’t read too much in it but there was an opporrtunity there for Lonzo to say he loved playing for Luke but he didn’t elect to go that route. Just an observation but something to watch. “I’ll play for anybody” is not an endorsement of Luke Walton.

      There’s always going to be grumbling when teams are struggling and in a big loosing streak and the lineups and rotations have not been steady, not entirely but to a great extent due to Luke. Luke got everybodfy to buy in but there’s a strong likelihood that he has lost ground and faith when you look at the situation honiestly. Doesn’t mean he can’t fix it but that he should realize he’s at a crossroads.

      Every young coach faces moments when he can lose a team or regain their trust and faith. I think Luke is at one right now. Bottom line, if the players still believe, we’ll see it tonight. If they don’t, we won’t. The Hawks are the only team in the league with a worst record and a loss tonight would be our 10th straight, tied for worse in franchise history. And with LaVar taunting Luke, this team better come out for their coach tonight with a big win and high energy for 48 minutes.

      Any less would be a devastating blow to the Lakers and Luke Walton’s future as their head coach. His hold on the team is at stake tonight. His players know it, his superiors know it, and he knows it. Tonight starts the second half of the Lakers’ rebound season or the second half of coach Luke Walton’s final season. Probably not but that’s how the players better be looking at it. If they want Luke as head coach, they better show it and bring it tonight.

          Who says they are not doing those things? I believe Randle is going above and beyond putting the work in. What is antiquated is treating people like commodities jacking them around. As a rookie coach and rookie front office you haven’t earned that respect. Pop and RC Buford yes…Luke Magic and company NO….

          Side note I bet you were against the ACA mandate? The hypocrisy…

            you believe and that makes truth?

            since when has Randle been treated like a commodity? isn’t that for HIM to decide? just because some guys on the internet say something is true, does not make it so, even if they all say the same thing. i’m not saying that Randle has or has not been mistreated, i just haven’t seen any signs of abuse. he is not promised playing time for anything. if the coach thinks he helps to get what the coach wants done, then he’ll play. it doesn’t matter what you or i or anyone else thinks. if the team finds that Luke is not performing as they think is fit, they will fire him. the moment they do things because you or anyone else outside the walls of the gym thinks they should is the moment that the team might as well quit all together.

            what does the ACA mandate have to do with anything and why would not liking the mandate equal hypocrisy?

            are you female? because the responses that you give are completely emotional and hysterical.

            I think we’re that close, too. I’d say Boogie is the one we need to get and keep the rest of our young cast. I would really hate to lose Randle. Would rather pay him and give him the minutes and love he deserves.

              exactly what in his attitude and character are you concerned about that any other NBA pro doesn’t do? lets use Draymond Green, Rodman, Charles Barkley or even Kobe Bryant as baseline.

              No you’re not the only one. Took me a while to even warm up to the idea that he’s the one we need -- mainly due to his penchant for techs. His reputation precedes him and refs tend to come down harder on him than they would other players for the same infraction.

              His quick trigger and lack of self-restraint on occasion is also a cause for concern.

          Actually I don’t really want to give up our young pieces, and am especially fond of Randle and loathe to trade him away. If we can get the stars as free agents, that’s great. But I also do see the risk in that wait and see approach as what happened with PG.
