The seasons not over for Randle. He may end up consistently getting over 32 minutes a game by the end of the season.

Maybe those extra minutes and telling him they want him and will match any offer will be enough to sway him?



Right now the Lakers situation is so fluid -- they don't know what free agents they'll be able to get, and who they might have to let go to create the space. Randle knows he's not #1 in their plans, and he may not end up in their plans at all, so it's hard to imagine his focus won't be totally on what's best for him.

Yep, and staying in L.A., getting paid (the same he would have elsewhere), competing for rings, playing with James may all be what’s “best for him”.

No one is asking him to actually take a paycut. Only allowing the Lakers the opportunity to give Randle the opportunity to play with LeBron James. Hell, tell James to call him personally and ask him to bring the offer back to Magic before signing it.

For Randle, for him not to do that would mean he simply can’t trust the Lakers at their word, and that’d be unfortunate.

I believe that if Randle had an offer from Dallas for 15 mill/yr, told Magic before signing it, then Magic agrees to match it if Randle waits til they finish shopping, I’d believe Magic.

Here’s hoping the glass is half full.


How would this work from Dallas' point of view?

1) Dallas tells Randle they will offer him $15 mil a year.
2) Randle tells Magic about the impending offer from Dallas
3) Magic tells Randle not to sign that deal yet, sign it later and the Lakers promise to match
4) Randle tells Dallas to wait until the Lakers are done shopping then offer him that $15 mil deal.
5) Dallas agrees. They save their cap room indefinitely waiting for Randle.
6) Time passes, Lakers are done shopping. They tell Randle to go sign that Dallas deal
7) Randle tells Dallas to now offer him $15 mil. Dallas obliges.
8) Lakers match

What does Dallas get out of this?

Sign Boogie and Paul George.

Go over the cap to extend Randle beyond his 12m cap hold.

Use room exception and vet mins on shooters (Bellinelli, Ilyasova).
nice gm work but you and I both know that team is not touching a healthy gstate team. not even close. might not even make it to the WCF's.

Boogie doesnt play a lot of defense. Randle can't really play defense on any powerful Big PF guys. so the only guys that these two can guard ore the face up guys and randle can help on pick and rolls well.

someone find me away to get me boogie, PG, and a bradley beale type. so atleast then we could compete with gstate in scoring.

There is no way Randle is getting $15m next year.

He will be lucky to get north of $10m next year.

There are very few teams that have cap space, will be spending $$ and have a need for Randle.

It’s here where you go off the path ...

3) Magic tells Randle that he’d match, so DON’T SIGN OFFER at all. He’ll match that deal after James is signed. Scouts honor.
4) Randle tells Dallas he’s staying in L.A.
5) Magic signs (or doesn’t sign) two max free agents.
6) Magic now goes over the cap to sign Randle to the original “offer” he got from Dallas.

PG - Ball - (James) - Caruso
SG - George - Hart - Thomas
C - Nance - Randle - Bryant
PF - Kuzma - Wear
SF - James - Ingram

Yeah, Dallas is the only real threat. They have space, need, and hometown love to offer, so we’ll see.

If Dallas does make an offer, the offer will have to be at least a million or two over the 12.5 million caphold, in order to put any pressure on the Lakers to not match.

14-17 million is about the price point of any offer sheet.

I hope you’re right though. I hope they snag Randle for ten mill, as you suggest, and if they do sign him for ten mill, it more than likely won’t be them matching an offer sheet. It’ll be a number that him and the Lakers come up with, independent of other teams.

I don't think Dallas needs to make an offer over the cap-hold. They just need to make an offer in the $8-10 range that forces the Lakers to make a quick decision on keeping Randle or trying for 2 stars. My guess is Randle may try to hold out for more, but he can also land himself in a situation where he is stuck accepting a the qualifying offer at way less than than his cap-hold.

Either way, I think we are completely inflating Randle's value in the market. A rebuilding team isn't going to try to build around him or see him as more than a very good role player and those teams will likely focus their attention on higher upside players such as Jabari Parker or Lavine. A team that may see more value in Randle won't have the cap-space to offer him much.

Teams don’t ususally make offers to restricted free agents because they know it will be matched, so why bother.

Same goes here.

If the Mavs and Randle agree to a ten million dollar offer sheet, it’ll be matched end of story.

Like I said, any offer made under the caphold will be a waste of time for the other team — the Lakers’ll match it quickly.

Again, I hope you’re right about the numbers. I actually feel the same way.

I have him accepting a 4 year, 50 million dollar deal from the Lakers, basically the same deal Clarkson got, which’d be a steal.

Now teams can negotiate with RFAs during the moratorium so they can provide an offer sheet in the first minute of free agency. Meanwhile teams can’t negotiate with UFAs until the moratorium is over.


Right on the first sentence, but wrong on the second sentence. Teams can negotiate with everyone on July 1, but they can't sign anyone until noon on July 6.

The risk comes from the fact that the big name free agents may take their time while different teams court them. If the offer sheet is signed during the moratorium, it can take effect on July 6, which means we would need to match by July 8.

Thing is, we have no reason to get rid of JC.

Cap space isn't needed unless two max guys commit. Till that happens, there's no rush whatsoever and there should be no rush whatsoever.

And anyone you get in a trade for JC is going to be a lesser player.

Know why? Because good players cost money.


if you could find me a guard that comes off the bench for less money than JC and is as productive that isn't on a rookie contract I'd like to see it.

The only one is Lou Williams, and that was a contract WE gave him, and subsequently have gotten rid of now.

Clarkson, whether you like it or not, MJ, is the sacrificial lamb.

He (and Deng) must be surrendered for anything to happen.

You can wait, but you’d later need the first round pick that you could “probably” acquire if you dumped him now to use in a potential Deng trade.

If you wait til the summer, you’re selling Clarkson for pennies, getting nothing of value to rid yourself of the biggest weight around your neck — the Deng contract.

So yeah, everything could blow up in their faces. You are exactly right about that. But I’d gladly risk losing Clarkson for a chance to have a seat at the table with Mr. James and George. If no one comes, I’d consider it successful that all I had to give up was Clarkson (and Russell) for a chance at greatness.

You trade Clarkson now to use the asset that he brings in a package to trade Deng this summer.

You keep Clarkson, you miss out on an asset, possibly missing out on the ability to trade Deng, which leads to having to stretch Deng, which leads to losing Randle because Deng’s stretched caphold is too great to keep Randle too ... all of this just because you didn’t strike on a Clarkson deal at the proper time ... right now.

For absolutely no one that's guaranteed to come and likely won't as we're a loss away from being tied for the 3rd worst record in the league, and no max guy is coming to that.

So you can go about Clarkson being some kind of sacrificial lamb, but we wouldn't even be sacrificing him for anything, which makes absolutely no sense.

Again the problem with this way of thinking is this mentality that "all we need is cap space and we can get George and LeBron!!"

No. There is a LOT more that goes to it. So this whole way of thinking that Clarkson or anyone else HAS to be moved in order for something to happen before anything is even guaranteed is bull[expletive] and any rational basketball fan that understands free agency knows it.

My mind is fuzzy on this (I don't think it can be done anymore), but can teams still front load contracts to make it harder for teams to match.

How much is Jordan Clarkson worth?

If we, for whatever reason, didn’t need him anymore, what would be equal value?

A mid first round pick, right? There really is no problem here.

You’re caught up in your narrative, but can’t see the forest from the trees.

No one is talking about giving him away, only cashing in one asset (Clarkson) for another asset (first round pick) that, for the Lakers’ purposes (potential Deng trade), is more valuable to them.

Stay focused. I’m arguing that if you have an offer right now for a mid first round pick for Clarkson, you pull the trigger. That’s my argument.

Now, to your point, if there are no trades available that’d net them a decent pick, you hold on to Clarkson.

But if there is, by all means you do it for a chance to make “the pitch” and change the course of the franchise.

Sacrificing Clarkson (for a mid-first) is worth that chance.

For the record, I’m skeptical you could even get a mid first for Clarkson. So the point is somewhat moot. I’m only pointing out that if the opportunity presented itself to trade Clarkson for a first round pick that had potential to be in the teens to early twenties, you do it.

It’d be smart preparation.

Good thing is that Clarkson is still relatively young and unlike Lou, still has room to develop his game.

I could see Popvoich taking a flyer on Clarkson.. I can live with a mid 1st round pick especially in a deep deep draft.

It's hard to find a team that has an expiring deal and would be willing to also give up a 1st for JC.

Just keep him this year, deal with that later.

In my opinion, it would not be wise to trade JC during the season for the following reasons:

1. Why give him up when we have no commitments from the 2 Max?

2. JR's situation during the summer is very fluid. He may spite the Lakers for benching him and not extending him and get an early contract from Dallas or others. The Lakers will have to either let JR walk or match thereby letting go of the 2 Max plan. Either way, it would be irrational to trade JC before the deadline. No reason to give up JC without seeing how the JR situation unfolds.

3. If JR is sour on the Lakers, then why choose JR and trade JC who has been happy taking what the Lakers give him (benching him)?

4. We are not going to get anything of significance for JC. Maybe a late 1st rounder, if we are lucky.

5. Trading JC now will make our team worse and not attractive to FA's.

The only sane reason to trade JC before the deadline is to allow him to flourish on another team instead of being on the bench. Otherwise, it's bad business on all accounts and this is a business not a fantasy league.

^ Agreed. He's important to keep this season. We can deal with trading him later. With Lonzo's struggles, not having JC would be crushing to this team.

In essence, I only see Clarkson being used as a added filler in a Paul George trade, OKC is gonna need to add scoring if they end up trading PG. and if we move KCP/Clarkson in a deal for PG that will lessen the blow of George's offensive output.

We lose assets that could otherwise be used to help offload Deng’s contract if we trade for PG mid-season especially with the assumption that he’s signing with us anyway.
