Here we go!

 

 

 

 

New Orleans could've got that deal back in February.......so much for the new GM doing better..........not having to give up Kyle Kuzma makes it a great deal for the Lakers, IMO.

 

Lakers now the very early Vegas favorite to win it all in 2019.

A+ for Lakers ...they get a top 5 player in his prime.  None of the other guys going the other way project as an All Star IMO.

Only thing I can think of is taking one last whack for Tatum.

Except there’s a good chance doing in February makes the 4 much worse if AD helps a playoff run and never know if the new blood hurts the pels shot at 1.

 

this thread also isn’t including the ability the swap picks with the Lakers in the seasons they don’t have their 1.

 

not a GREAT haul but given his ability to tank this season and walk in a year, and also his ability to refuse to sign elsewhere.... not a bad trade

I agree. With one year left on his contract, with AD not wanting to stay with NO...

Yeah good point about the 2019 draft implications of not making the deal earlier.    The Pelicans getting Zion was just a stroke of luck but I think LA getting the #4 pick worked out better for LA too because then they didn't have to give up Kuzma.    Can't see that deal getting done without Kuzma without the Lakers getting that very high #1 pick in the lottery.

I think the hope in Nola is spin Lonzo and 4 into a solid player, let Ingram be your boom or bust asset short term and then know you have good draft capital. 

 

I could be wrong but id be a little surprised if lonzo ever sets foot in the pels home locker room.

No Durant or Klay next year? Cakewalk for the Lakers?

Back to New Orleans??

 

 

Maybe he could meet up with Kyrie in NY.

 

The New York Knicks, where dudes go who act like chicks.

And if you figure LeBron is last legs, and the pels weren’t consistently winning with Davis (and just traded all their high picks and young assets) there’s a chance some of those are decent picks down the line

This isn't quite right.  It is:

 

No. 4 in 2019

2021 pick goes to pels if it is top 8.  If not 2022 goes and is unprotected.

Pick swap in 2023

Unprotected first in 2024 with the right to defer to 2025.  If that happens the pick swap gets pushed to 2026.

 

So the Lakers will still have picks to utilize it will be the pels choice which one they get though.  Barring injury I think the draft capital won't be as great as it appears to be now but this has potential to blow up huge in the Lakers face.

 

I'm a Lakers fan and really happy with the deal.  This is being on the opposite end of the Shaq to the heat deal for me.  We gave up some good players and got a superstar.  Make that deall 100 times out a 100 in the nba.

IDK, he's the only player discussed with legit All Star upside potential.  If I'm Ainge, I can't risk losing him with Kyrie out the door and AD not going to re-up in 1 year.

I approve of the Celtics draft picks. That is all. 

 

Brad Stevens reaching deep into the state of Indiana - ok with me. I watch a ton of Big 10 b-ball and Edwards and Langford are ballers.

Ditto. I didn’t watch nearly as many Celts game as I normally do. I’d be energized if they do land Kemba.

I’d like to see Ainge move some of those future 1s for another impact player if possible

I don’t have a team, but I would love to see Kawhi team up with Bron and AD, just to see the warriors fans cry
