As much as I like THT, for the right guy he can definitely be traded. He doesn't fit our AD-Bron timeline and from what I've seen this season he isn't that good in reading the defence and he gets caught a lot in situations. It's obviously a growth thing and he had big potential, but that's in 3-4 year at least. If we could get a great player whilst including THT, you got for it.


Sure but would you give up THT for a guy like Ellington, Grayson or Redick? It might solve some shooting issues and then you end up short a wing defender and it would end up like trading Zubac for Msucala, in the sense that you have a hole in the roster at the end of the season as opposed to a guy who can give you internal development when short of picks and cap space, which the Lakers will be for the foreseeable future.

THT is a guard with a long wingspan, so no he is not a wing defender that will defend a guy like Kawhi, Tatum, Butler, KD, Tobias Harris.

Wes, Kuzma, Bron, and AD will take on those duties. Maybe even some Kieff or Ariza on a buyout?

He is not a great off ball defender

He can't shoot

AC is more valuable

I wouldn't move THT for Ellington. JJ is not doable b/c of contract w/o adding more, so cancel it

I would move him for Grayson Allen

He is 25, so can stay around for some time and a 40%+ shooter for this year and last yr


THT's size (6'4 tall 7'1 wing span) is not far off of PJ Tucker's (6'5 tall 7'2 wing span) and Tucker guards all those guys. I wouldn't mind putting him in a trade but he is on a rookie scale contract and you need to add salary for him, yet it won't get you anywhere near a difference maker unless you add one of Trezz or Schröder, you can't bundle a bunch of minimum guys either as the receiving team can't accommodate those roster slots.

Matthews and Kuzma are the guys you consider trading for an SF 3+D players.

Yeah Kuzma is not possible actually.

Matthews paired with an SRP '23, '24, '25, '27. FRP '27

I see no fit for Blake... He's basically a Morris brother at this point... And we already have the best one of those... And even he doesn't play that much.

All of those players are better than Tucker and his remaining years. Silly proposal.

We desperately need a true center who can actually move on defense and jump for rebounds and block shots.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

we really dont have the luxury to be picky. get the best player available and worry about fit later. we need firepower big time.

This is what I sayin during the off-season. Less is better. Retain chemistry is key. Aquire the point guard? Good. But so many changes to the interior of this defense and team, now we have injuries and age impacting the 5

In my view, porzingis and AD would look formidable to any lineup. Size. Shooting. And even some rim protection, mostly by AD of course.
But Porzingis has a price tag that leaves us out of the deal. And of course injury history

Schroder just closed on a $5 million dollar pad in Tarzana on Tuesday. Seems he might be sticking around.

Maybe worth trading Schroeder, KCP, Harrell for Porzingis, Burke, DFS?

Caruso, Matthews, LeBron, Davis, KP
Burke, THT, DFS, Kuzma, Gasol
Vet min, Vet min, McKinnie, Dudley, Markieff
