Lakers bucks off-season trade

Lakers Holiday S&T 4y 100m

Bucks Schroeder S&T 4y 90m 2nd round pick

04 Apr 2021 18:50:58
Holiday just signed today.

04 Apr 2021 19:12:39
Horrible for Bucks.

04 Apr 2021 19:17:53
The ba doesn't work that way.

05 Apr 2021 02:57:59
Lol I wrote this before he signed.

05 Apr 2021 15:26:09
Lakers can actually do this now. Before they could not sign Holiday as a S&T because it would have put them over next years Hard Apron Tax level (by about $10 mil if Harrell opts in) and they Lakers would still have 7 roster spots to fill which is below the league minimum.

But with Holiday signing the extension, there is no S&T and therefore no hard apron cap.

Magic/Pelicans NBA Draft & Off-Season

Pelicans get Terrance Ross Michael Carter Williams 2022 second round pick.via Pacers from Magic

Magic get Eric Bledsoe 2022 first round pick.via Lakers from Pelicans

Second Trade


Knicks get Eric Bledsoe

Magic get Kevin Knox 18 million TPE two future second round picks from Knicks

Magic draft Jalen Green #3 pick & Kai Jones #10 pick

30 Mar 2021 09:41:48
I thought Bledsoe is trash?

30 Mar 2021 09:41:48
I thought Bledsoe is trash?

30 Mar 2021 12:24:47
pelicans are going to need Bledsoe, Knicks will pursue and over pay Lonzo Ball 4yr 100mil.

30 Mar 2021 13:42:42
Trying to figure out why the Magic are even in this deal. Couldn't the Pelicans just trade Bledsoe into Knicks available cap space? Pelicans would probably be able to keep that Lakers first.

30 Mar 2021 14:43:34
Garbage trade idea. A Dominos Pizza box has a better chance of making a fair trade idea than you do

A first back for that pile of garbage

28 Mar 2021 19:10:41
Drummond to Lakers now let's waive Gasol and hope Bradley and porter get bought out

28 Mar 2021 21:13:04
weren't you a cavs fan? O. Porterjr will not be bought out.

28 Mar 2021 22:56:21
Why waive Gasol, he'll contribute come playoffs watch.

28 Mar 2021 23:28:19
Ummmm. I am probably wrong but I will raise this flag. According to Spotrac, the Lakers are hard capped because they used both the MidLevel and BiAnnual exemptions in signing Matthews and Harrell this season. They currently only have $1.5 mil in space remaining under the hard cap. Drummond's veteran minimum contract will be over that ($2.3 mil for his years of service) . All of the current active salaries on the Lakers rosters are guaranteed so waiving a player does not get them more cap space.

Really curious on how this is going to happen.

29 Mar 2021 03:22:16
Ahhhh. Forgot that the salary is prorated for the remaining games in the season.

29 Mar 2021 13:09:48
James will tell front office how and who to get rid of.

29 Mar 2021 13:26:29
No matter what, you can always sign players for minimum. Hard cap, salary cap, etc won’t block that.

29 Mar 2021 21:11:16
Hard cap actually blocks that.

30 Mar 2021 13:58:40
Really? I didn’t think anything did but you’re right.

23 Mar 2021 00:43:03
A Lakers revamp team

Lakers - Bagley & Whiteside
Kings - Harrell and THT

- Whiteside gives Lakers much needed rebounding and would get PT. Bagley gets change of scenario and fills in for AD
- Kings a center they'll love to have after Holmes enters FA. They can also afford THT.

Lakers - White
Spurs - Kuzma

- Lakers get theirs 6th man that can fit a lot better with the team
- Spurs need a future PF to replace LA

Lakers - Looney
Warriors - Gasol & 2nd

- Lakers get more depth at PF
- Warriors get true big bodied center that can bang down low & fit the offense


23 Mar 2021 04:51:48
Valuewise, all are considerably good but personally, I will only do the 3rd trade as a Lakers fan. Kuzma is showing some effort defensively and has been playing well lately. He is cheaper than White too. From what I've heard from Fredman and BMiller, Whiteside is terrible and only desperation will force the Lakers to trade for him.

23 Mar 2021 06:57:20
Harrell > Bagley. Until you value defense and winning more than stats you never understand fair value.

23 Mar 2021 15:14:09
Actually, Whiteside is not "terrible" depending on how you use him. Is he a starting center playing 35+ mins? Heck no. But as a back up center playing two 6-8 min stretches, Whiteside is fairly effective especially on the defensive end and rim running on the offensive end.

23 Mar 2021 15:20:52
Whiteside would be a great player to fill that Dwight Howard roll the Lakers miss. Great rebounding and rim protection.

22 Mar 2021 22:28:51
Assuming that the Kings can get the following draft capital for players.

2023 second from Lakers for Whiteside
2021 second from NY via Philly for Bjelica
2021 first from Toronto for Holmes

Then the Kings send all this draft capital to Houston along with Bagley + Joseph (partial guaranteed next year) + Parker (expiring) for Gordon + Wood.

Fox/ Halliburton

If Houston is serious about trying to dump Gordon's future salary. Plus, Wood is a perfect match to build around Fox and Halliburton.

23 Mar 2021 06:58:45
Rivers for Bjelica.

22 Mar 2021 15:58:26
Nuggets 2 2nd round picks

Lakers Bol Bol

22 Mar 2021 21:51:33
Can't see Denver giving the Lakers a piece for their championship run.

19 Mar 2021 19:54:14

Clippers get Lonzo Ball Nemanja Bjelica

Kings get Lou Williams Patrick Patterson Wenyen Gabriel Reggie Jackson Daniel Oturu

Pelicans get Cory Joseph Terance Mann Mfiondu Kabengele 2021 second round pick.via Lakers from Kings 2021 second round pick.via Memphis from Kings 2022 second round pick.via Hawks from Clippers 2024 second round pick.via Clippers

Kings can flip Wenyen Gabriel Reggie Jackson Patrick Patterson for second round picks

Clippers got to a lot better

Clippers should keep Patrick Beverley all cost he is a key off the bench

Pelicans get their salary filler + young players can be good + high quality second round picks in return

19 Mar 2021 22:04:51
Trade puts Kings over the salary cap and takes away financial bonuses that comes with being under the cap at the end of the year as Kings have to waive 2 players on current roster to complete the trade (Parker and Whiteside? ) . $8 mil in waived salary + $5 mil in incoming salary.

not sure Gabriel, Jackson or Patterson gets the Kings any picks. They were last second vet min signings and have done nothing to improve their trade value.

Although I would love to add Oturu for a (late) second rounder, I just don't think Lou Williams is worth all that to the Kings.

20 Mar 2021 01:02:41
Yeah Genius, the Pelicans need tons of second round picks when they have tons of picks already

Stick to lemonade stands.

20 Mar 2021 14:55:57
I'm pretty confident that the Pels, if they decide to move Ball, can get more for him than anything the Clippers could possibly offer outside of gutting the rotation.

21 Mar 2021 04:16:06
Dac 🤣🤣.

18 Mar 2021 19:31:03
OKC gets Bledsoe, 2024 Lakers 1st

Nets get Hill, 2027 Heat 2nd via OKC

NOP gets Dinwiddie

***OKC takes on a bad contract, get an asset. Nets get an older, cheaper, healthier version of Dinwiddie (plus the second from the Ariza deal). Pelicans rid themselves of Bledsoe at the cost of a first while getting a crack at a year of healthy Dinwiddie next season.


18 Mar 2021 21:09:04
How Bledsoe a bad contract.

18 Mar 2021 21:26:39
throw in SGA to Knicks and it's a fair deal. how do you turn a pg not playing for a better pg and 1st. it's not even. Pelicans are not making moves for the future. I don't see why OKC is in this trade. horrible idea.

19 Mar 2021 06:11:14
OKC can get a first for Hill without taking on a terrible contract.

19 Mar 2021 11:29:20
Hopper, you're delusional. Bledsoe>Hill. His contract isn't terrible. OKC is NOT getting a 1st for Hill.

19 Mar 2021 15:18:11
Dimwiddie is no better fit for Pels than Bledsoe. And then to give up a first as well. nahhhh.

19 Mar 2021 17:22:17
Bledsoe is making 7 million more per year than Hill and is averaging less points per game. Doesn’t make sense for OKC to take on that contract when they can get a first for Hill anyway.

17 Mar 2021 17:37:41
Saw this trade. This may trigger a couple on here but it's fair value

Pels get Gordon

Magic get Bledsoe. 2021 1st from LAL 2022 2nd

17 Mar 2021 18:55:55
Just don’t see the fit with Gordon and Pels with Ingram and Zion there.

17 Mar 2021 19:19:54
Not sure if Bledsoe is worth the pick, isn't he a headache?

17 Mar 2021 19:20:05
Gordon would come off the bench NBA16. I also think they could play together in short shifts, probably as a small ball unit.

17 Mar 2021 20:59:20
I get Bledsoe to the Magic, but not Gordon to NO. Perhaps a third team.

17 Mar 2021 21:31:22
I’m sure Gordon doesn’t want to come off the bench and if the Pels (a lottery team) I’m not trading a 1st for a bench player. I would rather package Bledsoe/ picks to upgrade starting SG or Adams, NAW, and multiple picks to flip for a center that fits better with Zion (Vucevic example)

17 Mar 2021 23:04:28
Can Ingram play two guard I think so.

18 Mar 2021 02:24:22
go big or go home. Dangerous playoff team

Adam Bledsoe Reddick 3 1st
Vucevic Gordon Ross MCW

Ball/ Lewisjr/ MCW
Hart/ Walker/ Thornwell
Ingram/ Ross/ Gabriel
Zion/ Gordon/ Melli
Vucevic/ Hayes/ Hernangomez.

15 Mar 2021 15:47:22
it's time for the knicks to block the nets and lakers from securing a championship team.

Drummond Dotson Dellavedova for Ntilikina Payton Knox dal 23 1st will get it done

no team is willing to offer them a 1st. Knicks already confirmed they are willing to give him extension. This also means knicks no longer will need a pg like Payton or Rose who will attack the paint or Knicks will attack through the post and dominate teams on the board. This will require their pg to be able to shoot 3s So Quickley will start. I would also send Toppin in G league, to polish his game.

If knick were smart they should trade Toppins dal 21 1st for J.Collins extend him. too give NY elite 1-2 punch at center and PF.

All of sudden you replace a 1st and Porzingis with Drummond Jcollins which makes it look great for NY

sign Reddick after buyout

I like this team in the compete in playoffs


15 Mar 2021 16:02:14
I like that too, but Anunoby can take down Randle, Powell Barrett, and Quickley is still young and inexperienced.

15 Mar 2021 16:51:03
doza this yr and this year only Anunoby nor Siakam is not on Randle level. Knicks are so bad at pg and center now with robinson rose and Payton out that Randle can't carry them. Even Barrett playing better. Quickley is avg at best on defense, but he puts so pressure on teams defenses. he ability to stretch the floor keeps teams honest. I would even consider trading Payton for G. Hill.

15 Mar 2021 17:51:43
Oh sorry I misphrased that. I meant ANunoby can stop Randle defensively, and Siakam can crush him on the other end. QUickley will still have to deal with an All-Defensive VanVleet.

15 Mar 2021 20:39:09
Doubt Collins wants to leave to be a backup.

Also why do you always say Robinson is untouchable and a future star but steadily trade for Drummond and want to resign him?

15 Mar 2021 23:17:35
you need depth to win championship. 82 season is long. 28 mpg Randle 24mpg Collins 24 mpg drummond 24 mpg Robinson. 1 player plays 7 min rotation and 3 play 6 min rotation.
learn how to be a good gm, protect your bigs.

12 Mar 2021 12:15:18
I've seen 2 headlines this morning... Lakers disappointed in Gasol... Lakers want Tucker...


Toronto gives Baynes, Davis, 2025 2nd
Toronto gets Gasol, McKinnie

LA gives Gasol, McKinnie, Matthews, 2023 2nd
LA gets Tucker, Nwaba

HOU gives Tucker, Nwaba
HOU gets Baynes, Davis, Matthews, 2023 LA 2nd, 2025 TOR 2nd

12 Mar 2021 12:23:10
I think Boston or Phoenix will come in with a first round pick for Tucker.

12 Mar 2021 13:18:37
Ainge will be tarred and feathered if he gives Houston a 1st round pick for Tucker. Alongside Belichick for signing Cam Newton to a 14 million one year deal.

12 Mar 2021 13:59:00
Think Boston only Gives a first for grant.

12 Mar 2021 16:48:09
@windrapsfan no way Houston gets a prospect like Davis for an aging P. J. Tucker.

12 Mar 2021 22:00:17
@JJ. let me introduce you to the Toronto media, who will not let Davis sleep regardless of the plea deal. I really doubt they will even try to bring him back to Toronto next year. if they can get something for him at the deadline that's a win.

12 Mar 2021 11:48:05
Atl- kuzma-Thad young

10 Mar 2021 20:04:46
Lakers Mo Bamba

Magics 2021 1st round pick and a 2nd round pick

10 Mar 2021 20:58:04
Magic say no we saw Shaquille O’Neal went to Lakers so no it’s not happening Pelicans own Lakers 2021 first round pick Lakers doesn’t have any picks to trades.

10 Mar 2021 21:24:30
Way too much for Bamba. And the Lakers don’t have a trade exception to absorb him with.

11 Mar 2021 00:28:03
Don’t the Pelicans own that pick?

11 Mar 2021 03:12:36
Not saying it’s bad. Can lakers take on salary without giving any up?

11 Mar 2021 04:24:59
Lakers throw in Wes Matthews.

11 Mar 2021 05:05:05
orlando magic are the g league for lakers centers don't forget howard too.

10 Mar 2021 11:20:55

LAL get Danuel House

HOU get Wesley Matthews & 2nd round pick

Wesley Matthews has been terrible for the Lakers and i think Danuel can be a good role player for them

09 Mar 2021 08:47:47

Magic get Spencer Dinwiddie(injured) 2021 first round pick.via Lakers from Pelicans

Pelicans get Zach LaVine Denzel Valentine

Bulls get Lonzo Ball Josh Hart Terrance Ross 2021 first round pick(Top 10 protected).via Pelicans 2023 first round pick(unprotected).via Pelicans

Nets get Danny Green Dwight Howard 2021 second round pick.via Knicks from 76ers

76ers get JJ Redick Landry Shamet

Spencer Dinwiddie going to opt out his contract so Orlando Magic get first round pick in return just case of his injuries issue and contract issue

Nets got to a lot better on defense and offense

76ers got to a lot better on offense and defense also had two centers off the bench

Bulls going to start rebuilding and get young assets and veteran in return and draft picks

Pelicans got to a lot better get their third star player next to Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram

I hope this trade fair for all teams

09 Mar 2021 10:01:11
The sixers aren’t giving the nets another big body to throw at Embiid. And they don’t get better defensively here. Hard pass.

09 Mar 2021 00:01:14

Thunder get Reggie Jackson Al-Farouq Aminu Dwayne Bacon 2022 second round pick.via Hawks from Clippers 2022 second round pick.via Pacers from Magic

Clippers get George Hill James Ennis III

Magic get Lou Williams Patrick Patterson Darius Miller

Orlando Magic get their cap space relief three players on expiring contracts Lou Williams can play point guard & shooting guard

Oklahoma City Thunder taking players for draft picks

Los Angeles Clippers added depth for playoffs

09 Mar 2021 03:39:40
I think okc says no. That’s a lot of salary for a few seconds.

05 Mar 2021 07:09:37
Magic/Hornets/Lakers Mega Blockbuster Trade!!

Magic get Miles Bridges Malik Monk Alfonzo McKinnie Jared Dudley(waive) Devonte' Graham Vernon Carey Jr.Cody Zeller 2021 first round pick(Top 3 protected).via Hornets 2023 first round pick(unprotected).via Hornets 2021 second round pick.via Nets from Hornets 2021 second round pick.via Clippers from Hornets 2023 second round pick.via Lakers

Lakers going to cut some players

04 Mar 2021 23:49:18
Dwight is the best back up center we’ve had for Embiid. Not giving him up without a stretch 4/ 5 coming back.

05 Mar 2021 02:38:01
Add a few teams so magic can trade Howard and green for late firsts or early seconds. I am sure nets would take Howard.

05 Mar 2021 15:17:23
Holy crud this is bad for everyone but the Magic.

03 Mar 2021 18:41:36

Clippers get Aaron Holiday Kyle Lowry Goga Bitadze

Raptors get Ivica Zubac Terance Mann Jeremy Lamb T.J. McConnell four second round picks from Clippers

Pacers get Patrick Beverley Lou Williams Mfiondu Kabengele Patrick Patterson three second round picks from Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers should go all in if they wanna win championship

03 Mar 2021 19:28:39
raptors fans will spit in your face. Pacers should not even be in the trade. Another horrible deal.

03 Mar 2021 21:27:08
have to agree with shizzee on this one.

04 Mar 2021 09:42:14
Why's indy in this trade?

26 Feb 2021 18:09:49
Multiple reports of Lakers looking to acquire Whiteside in the absence of Anthony Davis.

Sacramento trades Whiteside+2021 second rounder (Lakers)

Lakers trades Talen Horton-Tucker

Trade could be expanded to include another team taking Talen Horton-Tucker for a better draft pick.

26 Feb 2021 20:08:15
Why are kings sending a pick?

26 Feb 2021 20:49:28
Lakers will not trade Tucker for that your smoking.

26 Feb 2021 21:01:25
Because horton-tucker is probably more "valuable" than Whiteside. Its a real late second abyways.

26 Feb 2021 22:14:32
Kings send Whiteside to Lakers for a 2nd rd pick. Not Tucker.

26 Feb 2021 22:26:56
fredman argues against his idea trade unbelievable . 🤣🤣.

26 Feb 2021 22:41:39
Value wise Horton has more trade value, but lakers need Whiteside way more than tucker.

26 Feb 2021 23:49:54
Y would the Lakers trade Tucker for Whiteside I just read teams are talking about offering Tucker a max.

27 Feb 2021 04:47:42
Lakers get something now because they are not matching a max offer.
