    @SamAmicoFSO: Lakers in talks to get Klay Thompson from Warriors for No. 7 pick, reports LA Times. Would be part of 3-way that'd send Kevin Love to GSW.

    Don't get it for us. Klay and Kobe play the same position. Klay is awesome, but I don't want to give him a max deal eventually.

    Lakers should not trade their draft pick.. They might get Dante.. Which I say has a far better upside than Klay. I know they want to get rid of Nash but let's face it, they aren't winning next year anyways because Kobe takes 23 fricking million.

    Terrible trade... I love MCW deal. But if we aren't getting love don't trade this pick.

    Yeah, I mean Klay's a great shooter and a solid enough defender, but his lack of an overall game + chucker-mode mentality (so many times he takes ill-advised shots rather than a quick kick-back to Curry for an open 3. He's on the selfish side as a player) is nowhere near the level of talent that should garner max-deal speculations.

    He can play the 3, though. He played it about half the time year 2.

    Interesting trade overall. I like how coveted Klay is, and the #7 + D. Lee should seal the deal for a K Love+ deal.

    I think Exum's gone at #3, definitely by 7.

    I think there is no way Exum goes to 7 now with Embiid's injury. I don't like this deal... doesn't really make sense on any level for us.

    Yeah, definitely should be enough for Love. I don't see anyone else offering anything better.

    Wish they would just draft smart at 7 and sign Stephenson. Damn, smart, Stephenson, and Kobe on the same team is pretty tenacious.

    Not sure about this deal. Klay may be had at some point in free agency and the Lakers may be able to do more with the philly deal potentially.

    I say pass until we see all of the details in this one.

    Lakers need to get this done. Get rid of Nash expiring somehow. Then sign lance but leave enough for a max offer. Lakers could have.

    Gasol
    ????
    Klay
    Kobe
    Lance

    With still enough for a max player if we move Nash. James or melo or bosh would fill in perfect. Once we sign a max guy the players like Marion, pierce, and carter will be begging to come play in LA.

    Also klay and Stephenson played a lot of PG on there teams. Curry and hill were not and still not great at handling the ball. Klay protects the ball better than anyone and lance is a great play maker.

    why wouldn't the wolves just do the celtics deal then? They have more picks to offer including #6 and we wouldn't have to take Lee's contract. The whole point of dealing with GS was Thompson I thought.
