I’m not so sure we don’t trade our picks in a Deng deal. We’ll see
Pretty butt hurt we don't have our top 10 pick our staff would of found a stud...oh well
If it was the pick by itself for Deng, then I'd do it in a heartbeat. That would free up $18m in cap space next season. We'd have enough money for PG, Lebron and Randle (at a reasonable price)
No one is taking Deng off our hands
He's a boom or bust candidate IMO. Was the NCAA title game an out-of-body experience, anomaly or the beginning of something great? I think he might be a lottery pick if he goes back to college (he hasn't signed an agent yet). Next year he'd be the #1 at Nova with Bridges gone. I don't know if he'll ever be able to defend at a high level though.
He could be a star or out of the league in a year
Boogie unfollowed pelicans and followed pg and it...asked why he said I'm grown...for what it's worth...lol
Boogie to LA for the vets minimum
he wants a team to back up the brinks truck
Anyone else happy that we don’t need to analyze top 10 picks this year. It’s like the process of “who do we take with our 2nd pick?” has been stressful as a fan. Then the doubt all year as people overreact and re-drafts etc. now it’s just, take the best player at 25 and lets play ball.
Literally didn’t even know the lottery was last night until after it happened
*Insert the Tracy Morgan no, no, no, no, no, no, hell no, dot gif*
I’m cool if it’s the vet minimum
Anything stay away. PG is the priority
So what are the goals for per game averages next year?
14 6 10
17 11 3
18 5 5
20 7 2
George 25 6 6
26 8 8
1 1 2
ESPNi post lottery mock
I’m going backup PG or defensive C, BPA of those two.
gelo making at least 1 3 a game
so 3 1 0
in the g league
The 25th pick is not going to get someone to take on Deng’s awful contract.
The only way that works is if they package someone like Ingram/Kuzma/Ball with the pick to either free up enough cap space or make a big enough offer to land an impact player (and Deng the throw in to match salaries).
Lakers only shot at returning to playoffs soon is to lure LeBron out of Cleveland. PG13 isn’t doing it.
I wasn’t saying JUST the 25th pick can unload Deng. I was thinking this year’s first, next year’s first, a second and a player like TB or Zu to a team that wants to build through the draft and has to hit the cap floor ie Atlanta if they trade Bazemore this summer
Well they can’t give up the two consecutive firsts before the draft, so they have to select that pick for a team this year in a prearranged deal or send a ‘20 first. A team taking on that contract will likely want to pick THEIR guy at 25.
That’s still a lot (two firsts) to just rid yourself of a contract unless you KNOW you have free agents ready to come. Since they can’t talk to free agents until after the draft, they are in a tough spot.
Ya but if they can get 2 FAs plus wanna keep Randle, Deng gotta go right? U a Celtics fan with that screen name
What if LBJ and PG want to come but they want Randle to stay?
He really is a treasure
I’m of the belief that if LeBron does want to go to the Lakers, it will be with CP3, and they will get rid of whatever it takes to get a third star.
If Houston gets smoked in 5 to the Warriors, what is CP3 staying there for? He will go and convince his buddy to join.
You know neither will want to deal with Lavar, so Lonzo’s a goner. That’s the opportunity to package picks with Deng (and Ball and possibly Kuzma or Ingram) to get another star and unload salary to sign CP3/LBJ.
Don’t think LeBron is as enamored to play with PG13 as most seem to think. But maybe. He clearly needs a primary ball handler and PG doesn’t really fit the bill.
Gonna be an interesting draft/moratorium/summer.
