That's why Cook is in the deal. Unless you'd prefer to trade Bradley or Caruso instead.

I'm always hesitant to trade KCP and any other guard/wing defenders because we need as many 3&D guys in the playoffs.


I wouldn't trade KCP either.

Right now I'd trade Dudley, Daniels, Cousins, Rondo and Kuzma.

I'd want a bench leader coming back for all that.


Rondo has to waive his de facto NTC. I doubt that happens.

Kuz I wouldn't give up, not for Mills. THT maybe.

Throwing too many players the Spurs' way also complicates things because they don't have any open spots either and then a third team definitely has to become involved



Oh sure. Bogdan (8.5m), Rose (7.3m), Ingles (12m), White (1.9m) are the guys I'd try to target to lead the bench unit. Ingles would probably require giving up Bradley.

Mills is nice, just worried about his ability to lead a bench unit and/or defend.

If you could take 1 of those guys, who would you take?

I would go with Bogdan

I don't know if I can trust Rose's shot and his defense has been an issue. Better with ball in hand, but thats fine if he is just the bench spark plug. Likely cant close games unless hes feeling it.

Ingles would require Avery and I am iffy on it, even though I brought the idea up as well.

I like White, but if we move Kuzma for him, we lose some offensive firepower. Would need another deal where we could get a bench shooter/scorer.

All I know is if this team wants to legit compete for a title this year and go toe to toe with the top few teams, we need a more reliable #3 guy and an upgrade at backup pg.

And it seems like we will have to move Kuzma to do so.

Thoughts on RoCo? We do lose shot creation though

Yeah I'd go Bogdan as well. I doubt the Kings would help the Lakers though.

Lakers have the defense to cover Rose. I'm only reserved to take him because his value has blown up lately and I doubt it's sustainable.

Doubt Spurs or Jazz would help Lakers as well.

I think convincing Darren Collison to play in the NBA again is a surer bet than these options. :lol:

I'm still curious about Wade... Can he play? He was doing well his final season. I'd rather see him out there than Rondo...

Also, there's been some rumors about Dragic being available... He's old but he can still hit 3s in bunches, moves well without the ball, can defend, etc... I think he'd instantly be our first PG off the bench after AB and would provide consistent scoring. That said, the price would probably be too high for us to match without including Kuz and we shouldn't do that.

Collison would be legit perfect here

Can shoot it, create, and play some pesky d (bit tiny, but we aren't asking for him to be perfect)

Trust him more than I do Kuzma

Wish someone could get a hold of him

I do also forget that it will be tough to get West teams to work with LAL as well. But it has happened

I think the Bulls could be a realistic trading partner.

Statoransky (10m), Arcidiacono (3m), Harrison (1.6m) and Valentine (3.4m) all seem like decent value players and they are all aged 25-28.

Statoransky and Harrison for Kuzma, Daniels, Cook/Cousins works

OR Arcidiacono and Valentine for Kuzma and Daniels

As someone who has been selling Kuzma low, I think these are a bit low, especially the 2nd one

Second one is low for sure but the first is bang on value and good value if they take Cousins.

Heres my problem with the trade

We have less offensive firepower and no 3rd option still. Also no 3/4 wing defender. We do get a nice backup pg though who can space the floor though and create
