Because Mark and I started talking about possible trades and what the Lakers were going to do if anything so I thought it would be a good opportunity to see what other people think is going to happen.
So the Lakers either need a Point Guard or a Small Forward. (More a Point Guard, but yeah).
The Lakers need to make this happen! We still have our $9 million trade exception we got from trading Lamar Odom. So we scared off DH (Center), we REALLY don’t want Steve Nash. Best possible option? That’s right!
Trading with the Celtics
Scary to think of but it’d be perfect. Who’s our top choice? Rajon Rondo.
The Lakers are also considering Johnny Flynn and Ramon Sessions.
Other options are getting Allen Iverson back into the NBA (he has been aching for some cash and I’d LOVE to see him on the Lakers, for my own personal reasons) and Gilbert Arenas (meh).
I love you Derek Fisher but the Lakers need to get rid of you AND Ron Artest. Sad but true. The Lakers might end up trading Pau Gasol as well.
What might go down:
Lakers trading Pau Gasol & Darius Morris & Mavericks #1 pick FOR Celtics Rajon Rondo and Jermaine O’ Neal
Lakers trading Pau Gasol & Matt Barnes & Darius Morris & Lakers #1 pick & Mavericks #1 pick FOR Celtics Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce
Along with trading the Lakers TPE for Jermaine O’ Neal
Lakers trading Pau Gasol FOR Timberwolves Derrick Williams & Future Draft Picks
Lakers giving up cash & future draft picks FOR Timberwolves Michael Beasley
Lakers giving up either Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum FOR Nets Deron Williams
Let’s just make something awesome happen! Come on Lakers!
