All the NO fear, but now its' David Griffin, not Demps, who said:

Read on Twitter


so #4, 1 young core, a veteran role player(we don't have, so another young dude).

I read this as 4, Lonzo/Ingram/ or Kuz, and Hart.

preferably with Kuz/4/Hart... I'd even add another 1st.

But does that beat a package of 3/Knox/DSJ/Frank/Robinson/2021 DAL 1st/2023 DAl 1st? I think LAL could have an edge in the talks since you guys are more willing to go all in since you have LBJ already. NYK should be slightly hesitant since they don't have a guarantee that a top FA or two will come. Boston has a good package if they are willing to include both Tatum and Brown plus all their picks and Smart as filler but I don't know if they are willing to go that far or not and NOP may still prefer the LAL godfather offer they could make.

For NY and BOS, that’s a lot of assets to risk losing for a potential one year rental.

With Zu gone I want a legit C for the 4th pick. I'll strongly consider Bol Bol.

I can’t find a player I really like at 4

Maybe this will change. But I don’t see 4 as that much better than #11

It’s just a huge swath of meh

Darius garland is filthy and just as good as ja morant. There I said it
Warspite:

Prince + filler for Kobe Bryant
To be honest the way Prince has played and with Kobes injury/age/mileage Im not sure I would do that deal either. Still Prince is more important and he wins the head to head battles with Kobe.

Probably best to trade down somewhere 7-10 and get a serviceable player back.

Just want to remind everyone throwing out ridiculous trades that completely ignore the CBA rules such as trading for AD or anyone worth the #4 pick is next to impossible before the draft. Thank you for ignoring this post.

Damn Darius Garland left the draft combine after playing just five games. They said he probably has a guarantee. The Bulls and Lakers as teams probably interested. I'm praying lebron and his guys said to lock him up since Garland is signed with klutch. I really hope we switch gears and get him.

How does that make you better than the Lin, Gallo, and Wil fans who root for them over NY?

Really doubt Lakers would make such a promise at this point. Phoenix is the team with the obvious PG need. Bulls have Lavine locked up for while and Cavs just drafted Sexton. But why would Garland shut it down just to go to Phoenix?

Don't trade the pick but draft #4 who was a gift.

Keep the gift and get another Superstar.


Why is only drafting the pick considered a gift? If we could get say..... 2 top stars and part with the pick we're a much better team. A top 5 draft pick is by no means a sure thing. Russell was only the 5th top 5 pick since 2000 to make an all star team and only 2 of the others have made multiple ones.

If you can get value, trade it. Be wary of endowment effect where we tend to overvalue our possession more than others.

Sign Kawhi or Kyrie

Lonzo for #7 and whatever else we can get out of CHI, unless NOP does want him

#4 + #7 + whatever extra out from CHI + Ingram + 2021 FRP + 2023 FRP for AD

C - AD, Wagner
PF- Kuz
SF- Lebron
SG- Kawhi, Hart
PG- Room Exception, Bonga (put Kyrie at starting PG if him instead of Kawhi)

That'd be the dream offseason for LAL. Bench will be thin as ****, so gotta get lucky on ring chasers.

That guy Tacko played at my school UCF as well as Aubrey Dawkins. I think though the Orlando Magic are going to try to draft him in the 2nd round or sign him as an undrafted free agent. Hopefully the Magic can keep both Tacko and Aubrey Dawkins in Florida.

Trade #4 + Ingram + Ball for AD I think thats a good package. Throw in Hart or a future first if need be.
