I'm less and less in favor of Trae watching these playoffs because I think the Lakers will need to retool more of the roster with different kinds of players. Trae will probably take most, if not all of the Lakers' non-AD/LeBron assets.

I'm still in favor of getting Dejounte, if the Lakers can get him something close to the AR(and salary filler) + 1 pick demand that was rumored at the trade deadline. That still leaves the Lakers with assets to go after other players.

Same. If you can get him for 1 pick + DLO or Reaves, to me that's a positive trade to even out the roster. If not Murray, a similar type of move for another similar level player. Trae would cost way more, and I don't think you get that much better of a player. He's inefficient and a liability on the defensive end.

I like Murray. But, not at the cost of AR. Especially when you're adding a possible pick, as well. Also, the numbers don't work. Murray's annual average salary is around $28.5 mil, if I'm not mistaken. In comparison, Reaves will be averaging somewhere around $13.5 mil annually. That's a $15 mil difference that the Lakers would need to fill with another player. So, that's TWO quality players, for one in return, plus possible picks. That's just diminishing returns, imo. Not as bad as Trae, granted. But, still not idea.

Another reason I'm not in favor of trading Reaves is, I believe that with an entire offseason to get quality rest, and work on his body/game, he'll return an improved player. Trading Reaves would be reminiscent of the Caruso debacle, in a way.

I would much prefer for the Lakers to identify quality pickups/additions, that don't involve overpaying. Something similar to how Pelinka moved during the 2023 season, when he added DLo, Rui, Vando, etc.. It'll take some patience, but that's the best route to go.

Can we not? Grant only fetched 1 FRP and it was 2025 mil one which guarantees to be low. We gave them 2 unprotected FRPs is criminal

Trae bought a $20 million dollar crib in LA recently?

As in because he’s French or because he’s not good? I’m willing to bet he’s gonna be way better then 1 the all time hype guys in Anthony Bennett

Still think Trae is an option. He wants out, hawks want to rebuild, and the lakers need to move multiple contracts to open roster spots.

Dlo, Vincent, Vando, cam +1frp 2srp

Hawks do this because Trae wants out and I’m sure they want out of that 43mil for the next few seasons. They also get more draft picks to help rebuild.

Lakers do this because they need to get better and they are running out of options. They get a legit 3rd star that can carry an offense for stretches when Bron or AD are hurt or resting. Only one first befause both teams benefit by the trade.

Trae/ dinwiddie
Reaves/ max
Rui/kenect
Lebron/woods
AD/hayes


I think with a a new coach wood returns to playing like before he was a laker.
Yes we need a big body but I dont think we need to have one that has to play 30mpg. We need to find one that can give spot minutes here and there. Maybe Dwight on minimum ??? He can still give a team 5-10mpg


Idk but I think we will be fine with woods as the backup center. We could even start him if we wanted.

We'll turn D'lo's 18 PPG into 23 PPG, gut the roster depth and still not be a solid contender and mainly be reliant on matchups helping us in the post season. Great.

Disagree. We go long stretches without scoring, especially when Bron is off the court. Trae would be the first legitimate distributor on this team since Nash, and the first young one since NVE.

He gets to the FT line and must be guarded. He'd be great for AD, Knecht, LBJ, etc.

Zach Lowe mentioned that he doesn't have much of a market right now.

I'm good with him if the Lakers don't have to give up too much in terms of picks.

I honestly don't think the Lakers' would lose as much "depth" as people think because you're probably replacing 2 offense-only players with 1 offense-only player of a higher level.

The guys the Lakers traded away in the Westbrook trade were actual 2-way players, not to mention that Westbrook didn't play anywhere near 3rd-star level. Trae is pre-prime while Westbrook was already flirting with decline before going to LA.

Trae is a low IQ, low FG% chucker. He’s a better shooter than Brick, but only marginally. I don’t think he fits in this team.

Not as good a rebounder either and worse defense, I expect faulk ups from the FO but another one almost just like the Westbrook mistake would be a new low for them.

Trae is a two-time assist leader and has a career average of 9.5/game.

DLo's career average is 5.8/game.

Trae's career average is 7.7 FTA/game. DLo's is 3.0/game.

In 6 seasons, Trae has 143 games of 30+ points.

In 9 seasons, DLo has 46 games of 30+ points.

Trae is not "another Dlo."

If we has a poll for which all star seems inevitable to end up a Laker for better or worse...I think Trae would have the most votes.
