NBA Lakers rumors: The chances of trading each player on the roster

Nick Young

Swaggy P’s time in Los Angeles can be summed up in one word — interesting. Bewildering is a close second, but the veteran has found his sweet spot as of last season.

Nick Young has next season under contract before becoming an unrestricted free agent next summer. He averaged 13.2 points per game last season, with an invite to the three-point contest also in his cards.

As the times continue to change in Los Angeles, the biggest x-factor in keeping Young around is what he brings to the chemistry of the team. Overall, he has the ability to step in as the leader in crunch time on occasion.

However, since that leadership part of him isn’t consistent, Johnson and company might see his trade value be the best asset he brings to the table.

That shouldn’t be too much of a problem for the Los Angeles native, but it’ll be hard to get a solid three-point shooter like him if he’s gone.

Chance of being traded: 35%

Corey Brewer

One of the roster pieces that Los Angeles acquired via trade last season was Corey Brewer. As part of the deal that sent Lou Williams to Houston, Brewer became another veteran that the team wanted to try and fit in their puzzle.

He hasn’t really factored much into the team’s wins or losses, and that should say a lot about his future in Los Angeles. Considering that one of the ultimate goals of next season will be transforming Brandon Ingram into the star forward they need him to be.

Since Brewer really doesn’t contribute much in that regard, whether you look at development or advice at the position, the team should test the waters with him as part of a package deal.

They won’t get a superstar in return for Brewer, obviously, but they could still pair him with enough of a package to get what he’s worth or more.

The team will officially be transitioning to its younger players as soon as it decides it’s next draft picks. Brewer should not be part of the long term picture whatsoever.

Chance of being traded: 85%

Tarik Black

One of the biggest needs the team cannot afford to ignore is their talent and depth at center. Ivica Zubac could be the starter next season, while veteran Timofey Mozgov hasn’t been all that they hoped he would.

Playing this previous season in the first of his most recent two-year deal, Black averaged 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. While those numbers don’t blow anyone away, he did so in just 16 minutes per game.

It’s a position that Los Angeles needs to work well if their young core experiment is to get them back into contention. Ball movement, offensive control, and even tempo don’t matter much if no one is able to crash boards and help the team get second chance shot attempts.

One area that Black needs to work on for his contributions to be at their most valuable is blocking. He averaged less than one block per game — that can’t fly the rest of his time in LA.

Considering that next season means he’ll be playing for a new contract offer or extension, it’ll be smart for the Lakers to keep him around in the rotation to see what he’s got.

Trading him would be a mistake.

Chance of being traded: 10%

Jordan Clarkson

Last season, Clarkson saw his role change to one off the bench alongside Lou Williams. While it seemed like an odd decision to make at first, it’s a spot where he thrived.

A free agent last summer, Clarkson inked a four year deal worth $50 million. He averaged 14.7 points per game last season, with 2.6 assists and three rebounds to round his stat box out.

If he goes somewhere other than the Lakers, expect him to be included in a guard heavy package. Something about a Clarkson and Russell deal seems to make a lot of sense in terms of rumors.

If Los Angeles is going to depend more on a point guard from the draft, it’d make sense if they want to get rid of some of their best draft pick ups in recent years.

For a second round selection, Clarkson has shined in the opportunity that the Lakers has become for him. There’s no doubt that the 24-year old will be seen as valuable to a good number of teams, especially when you consider he’s only got two years under his belt.

Whether he exercises his potential in purple and gold or another uniform is something only time will tell.

But if they trade him, it’ll be this season.

Chances of being traded: 50%

Luol Deng

Why the Lakers were so bent on signing him last season is still beyond me. Deng was supposed to apparently be a part of the veteran leadership moving forward, but that didn’t happen in the slightest.

It’s not even necessarily his play that’ll factor into his role next year, but the fact that they shelled out so much money for a guy who’s in the latter part of his career.

The former first round pick played over 26 minutes per game — that can’t be the same if they want Brandon Ingram’s growth to not be altered.

Bringing in the right kind of veteran forward would be something the Lakers would probably gladly do. The problem with that is that no one — unless you’re Brooklyn — is going to try and eat a contract that big.

Thanks to the four year deal worth $72 million, Deng will likely be in a Lakers uniform until they decide to either cut him or his season ends early due to an injury. It’s hard to believe that they really spent that much more money on a guy like him over Clarkson, but for the same time span.

Obviously a decision the franchise might regret, but Magic Johnson is left with the pieces.

Chance of being traded: 15%

Brandon Ingram

All indications point to the team building around soon-to-be second year phenom Brandon Ingra. Nothing was exactly special about his first season in the league, but the potential is there and ready to explode.

And that’s a good thing.

Deservedly so, Ingram has been given the benefit of the doubt since he’s still getting his feet wet in the association. For him to be a better all around player, he’ll need to work on his assists.

He averaged 9.4 points and four rebounds per game, but just over two assists per game. Obviously, the front office and the fans like what they’ve seen from Ingram, as they believed in him enough not to let him go at the midway point of the season.

Rumor had it that a trade involving both Ingram and D’Angelo Russell could’ve sent DeMarcus Cousins to Los Angeles. While there wasn’t hesitation with regard to involving Russell, the Lakers weren’t ready to throw their hat in the ring on their other second overall pick.

Plus, Cousins isn’t all that and isn’t the right center for them in the long term — so you could say that they dodged two bullets. At the end of the day, he should be their franchise cornerstone no matter what happens to the other young players.

It just makes sense.

Chance of being traded: 1%

NBA John Wall needs to be sold on Wizards plan before he does extension

14 people viewing this

| By Trotty Glizzy - 19 minutes ago


The Wizards haven't reached out to John Wall yet, but they expect to discuss an extension this summer with the four-time All-Star since he was named to the All-NBA for the first time in his seven-year career.

Wall can add up to four years of an extension on the two years that he has left for almost $170 million.

From league sources close to the situation, Wall wants to see a bigger picture plan on where the franchise is headed before committing for longer. The Wizards won 49 games this season and advanced to the conference semifinals for the third time in four years.

The salary cap for 2017-18 is projected to be almost double of what it was four years ago at $101 million. Before settling on what to do with Porter's contract, the Wizards have to figure out if they can lock in their best player and go from there in the offseason.

NBA Porzingis' Brother Met With Phil Jackson To Smooth Things and It Went BAD

34 people viewing this

| By Southpaw - 12 hours ago

Kristaps was overseas while Janis Porzingis - who is also Kristaps' agent - represented his younger brother. It's unclear what they specifically discussed but Kristaps' discontent with the organization's dysfunction turned public after the 21-year-old passed on attending his exit meeting last month.

Both Jackson and Janis spoke around these issues to the media prior to their meeting, with the latter telling ESPN that Kristaps wants to remain in New York but also desires "for the Knicks to create an environment where he can develop and grow as a player and win."

Apparently, it didn’t go very well.

Via Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News:

However, the lengthy sit-down in New York accomplished very little to bridge the chasm as Jackson remained steadfast in his ways and direction, according to a team source.
Nothing shocking here. Phil Jackson is still a stubborn jerk and the Porzingis family isn’t happy about it. The 21-year-old maintains that he loves New York, but winning is what’s most important to him.

According to sources, one of Jackson's objectives is to tailor the workout. Jackson referred to a statement from coach Jeff Hornacek, who said Porzingis progressed last season and,

"(You) can't do anything about the past. That’s the big thing. Whatever happened and went on, you can’t dwell on it.”
Apparently Porzingis can't do much about the future, either, with Jackson unrelenting in his philosophies while aiming to increase his influence over the coaching and training sessions around learning the triangle offense.

"I think I've got to do a little bit more on-scene, on-target mentoring," Jackson said last month.
Although statistically very impressive, Porzingis' production per minute last season was roughly the same as his rookie campaign. For the first two months, Porzingis played like an All-Star and the Knicks were headed toward the playoffs. But then he strained his Achilles and the season spiraled downward amid confusion about the offense, the defense, Carmelo Anthony's future, Joakim Noah's availability and Derrick Rose's whereabouts.

The trade for Rose last summer was clearly a negative for Porzingis. He had paired well in the front court with Robin Lopez (dealt away in the trade), and saw less of the ball with Rose on the floor.

Porzingis sat out the final five games of the season with a sore back, skipped his exit meeting with Jackson and then flew to Latvia to announce that he'll be competing in the European championships this summer.

As recently as last week, Hornacek said he reached out to Porzingis via text message but indicated there was no response.

The relationship between player and team began to deteriorate during the season and imploded after Jackson insulted Carmelo Anthony at his post-season press conference.

NBA LeBron James Named 2016-17 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award Winner by PBWA

2 people viewing this

| By timdog - 12 hours ago

On Sunday, the Professional Basketball Writers Association named Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James the 2016-17 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award winner.

The award is presented annually to the "player, coach or athletic trainer who shows outstanding service and dedication to the community."

"James' efforts to help young people are exemplary," PBWA President Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel noted. "He is making a difference, and so are the other 25 people who were nominated for this award."

According to the PBWA, "James is being honored for improving the educational opportunities of disadvantaged youth in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, and creating long-term change in his community. More than 1,100 at-risk students have benefited from programs through the LeBron James Family Foundation (LJFF), which motivates children to stay in school and attend college."

The other finalists for the award included New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler, Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum and Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph.

James, 32, has been just as fantastic on the court this year, averaging 26.4 points, 8.7 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game during the regular season. He's led the Cavaliers to a perfect 10-0 record this postseason, and the team appears set for a third straight NBA Finals matchup against the Golden State Warriors.

The Boston Celtics took a 44-point L to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night that was probably only rivaled in magnitude by the L that Anna Horford, the sister of Celtics big man Al Horford, took on Twitter afterwards.

As the Game 2 Eastern Conference Finals showdown began to get seriously out of hand, Horford tweeted that the blowout was the result of Cavs forward LeBron James getting to hand-pick his team.

NBA NY Post: Celtics ready to acquire superstar Carmelo Anthony

10 people viewing this

| By Trotty Glizzy - 12 hours ago


Before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals even had ended, debate on how the Celtics close the canyon that exists between them and the Cavaliers had begun. The Post reported last month Celtics coaches had interest in pursuing a trade for Carmelo Anthony at February’s deadline, but general manager Danny Ainge didn’t want to wipe out his 2017 summer cap space.

Now what? Some NBA executives at Chicago’s draft combine predicted the extent of Ainge’s offseason retooling hinged solely on whether his team was competitive with Cleveland and could take the Cavaliers to six hard-fought games.

The Post has reported the Knicks are interested in Boston’s defensive small forward Jae Crowder as a centerpiece in an Anthony deal. Crowder has been overwhelmed by LeBron James, so Ainge could be more apt to deal him. A 2018 first-round pick (the Celtics have two of them) would be icing.

The Celtics would need to add filler (perhaps free agent Jonas Jerebko in a sign-and-trade contract) to have the salaries work under the cap. However, Boston can absorb much of Anthony’s $31 million wage (which includes a trade kicker) with its cap space.
