Kemba Walker next target? Will only take one of Lonzo or BI to fit our cap with KL. We might be able to dump Deng in the trade too.


no way would I move Ball or Ingram for Kemba for many reasons....I actually prefer Ball and Ingram just as basketball players, plus we control their contracts with RFA for years....Kemba will expect a big payday in a year.

We cant afford Lillard at least without losing all other guys and a team of Kawhi, Lebron and Dame, as big as they are, cannot beat GSW without other competent guys.

FU PG13 it's all his fault.

If he didn't announce, we would have taken a look at Tatum.

Same here. In hindsight Lonzo was not even worth the 2nd pick. I know it's unfair to judge him based on his fathers' antics, but he's obviously not man enough to tone his father down, that or he agrees with every outlandish remark.
Let other teams deal with the Ball family.

Funny how the media plays into this and tries to build it up as much as possible.
As far as we all know, DL is not on the block in Portland and he's one of two of their main guys.
And once again, Portland who is definitely close to a rebuild, most likely won't trade to a western conference team either...
I'm sure we'll see more articles and youtube vids regarding this madness, so stay-tuned!

Lillard is a nice offensive player, but not the kind who will win championships IMO.

Already got punked by Rondo/Jrue in the playoffs.

As we have seen, he makes opposing guards unstoppable. But you think he is better than Curry so there is no voice of reason.

Agree with VLF on this one.

Just ask Rondo how devastating Lillard was against the Pels last year. Put up numbers? Sure. Win? Not so much.

Not fair.

Lillard really has no team around him. And unlike Lebron, he doesn’t have an entourage of agents / managers throwing his teammates under the bus to ESPN.

Lillard as a second opinion to LJ would be much different. Besides he’s better than Zo in pretty much every category besides rebounding. If we can make that flip - get it done.

Salaries aren't even close which means Deng has to be included. And it's more than Zo/Deng. Multiple picks and maybe BI. Def Kuz.

Really, really doubt Lakers would even consider Zo/Deng/BI/Kuz/multiple firsts for Lillard. I doubt they would offer much more than a straight Ball for Lillard swap (with Deng being included for salary purposes which would still save them money).

The Lakers make the media's job so easy. Literally say anything about the Lakers and the fans go into a frenzy. Plus they selfishly want the Lakers to get better because the better the Lakers are, the more viral the news gets.

If they write that Air Bud is coming to the Lakers, we will have capologists on ESPN calculating if his owner's administrative salary will count against the cap.

Not a fan of this potential move for many reasons. Dame is not a great defender and he gets paid waaaay to much money.

Even Deng/Lonzo wouldn't be enough in a vacuum.
