Why assume we couldn’t have had both?


Who did you want to trade for another late first round pick?

I guess I cant add to what has already been said but yeah this is a silly assertion. The Lou Williams trade remains a good move.

Which poster gets the blame for this stupid thread? Who would you prefer we didn't have so that we could have Williams for one year, Kuzma or Hart.

Useless player in the bigger picture, just like Jamal Crawford, you don't want them if you want to build a contender...

Y'all still shedding tears over Lou Williams? Come on. I understand the concerns about trading DLo but Lou? He offers zero towards our future other than the late first round pick that we traded him for.

I bet OP feels really dumb right now...Its pretty clear why we traded him, we were trying to tank for a low pick and Lou was helping us win games at the time. Simple as that.

Signing Lou Williams to a value deal before the cap rose and then trading him for a 1st was one of the smartest moves the rebuilding Lakers have made in years. Which is kind of sad. But still a good move.

Those moves (signing Lou and trading him) and trading for Lin & getting the 1st are easily the best rebuilding moves the Lakers made. We needed more of those and less of Roy Hibbert, Carlos Boozer, and, of course, MozDeng.


No the Lin move was a bad one. We should have tanked that year. Could have had Towns.

I see VLF is drinking that Hurricane this weekend and is confusing his facts. You go my dude!


I don’t think you have a basic understanding of what a fact is.

Lou was hurting the tank trying to keep an unprotected first found pick. He also netted us a a guaranteed first pick.

Truth be told if he didn't get traded last year he would've got traded this year anyway.

I miss having a closer.

I definitely do not miss the one-pass offense.

Having Lou on this current team would help and at the time of the trade I said maybe he would be an option to return when his current contract is up.

With that said, trading Lou was the right move.

That's so incredibly false.

There were times last season where Lou Williams would take the inbound pass, go downcourt, and take the shot.... three times in a row.

The ball definitely didn't move when it was JC in gun mode and Lou Williams playing PG. But LAL's 2nd unit was so good with those two basically playing Iso/PnR ball that they blew up other 2nd units. Unfortunately, it wasn't sustainable through the last 3 minutes of the game. Lou shot the Lakers out of a handful of games after getting hot in the 2nd and 3rd quarters as well.

My bad thought you were referring to Russell since he also played the closer role.

That's goes for all of our young guard, and he was going to cost us Ball and Kuz thus why he had to go.


um... we got Kuz by trading Russell...

tons to learn from a guy like Williams. Right now there's really no vet influence on the roster.
