Yes please!!!!


I've talked about this deal as one of the only deals around the league that make any sense for Kuz. Luke likes him, he's on a cheap contract for the next couple seasons, etc.

We'd also have to give up Bradley to match salaries. I would also want a draft pick back, if I'm the Lakers. Maybe a 2021 1st or something that's Top 10 protected for Sacramento.


2023 1st (Bronny)


Interesting thought... Do we have our own 2023 first? If so, wouldn't it be like us to maybe win a Chip in 2022, and tank for Bronny in 2023.

Thankfully Kuz played a good game today. Should have hit 2 or 3 more wide open 3 but oh well.
Need him to play well tomorrow too.

Sometimes, the best moves are those which aren't made. I don't know what to think about these trade ideas.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

I think Kuz will find a "happy place" with us if allowed.

Now about Danny Green... He's useless offensively either off the dribble or creating for others. I'm not seeing that he's able to stay in front of anyone defensively. Yes, he can hit 3's in bunches but other than being a finals veteran I'm not seeing anything near his salary in value. No chatter about it whatsoever but he'd be someone I'd see if there is a market for out there. He seems very replaceable with guys we already have.

I think he plays smart D, but I agree that he is someone that could be moved. If Kuz is the wildcard scorer, Danny has to provide consistency. I think his departure would have less of a negative impact on the locker-room and Lakers organization than trading Kuz, Rondo, Cook, etc.
I also question his drive (currently) given that he is coming off of a championship run. Which could work both ways, meaning that one can't rule out what he may provide come playoff time. I just have this feeling that he is going to make a big difference in a very important game down the line (similar to Ray Allen in Miami).
