View Full Version : Could the Lakers have gotten more for Sasha in trade?

Seeing some of the trades go down in the last couple of days and hindsight being 20/20, do you think the Lakers could've done better than getting Joe Smith in exchange for Sasha?

And in fairness, let's take the way Sasha has played in NJ out of the equation. GO!

Sasha was valuable, especially with 3 years for $18M

Hard to ask on this forum because 90% of people were constantly complaining about him and how he needed to be traded. He is performing well now because he gets a little more playing time. Lakers didn't have that time for him so I am happy that he is doing well elsewhere. For Sasha's contract, unloading him seemed to be the key rather than who we got. Joe Smith is doing perfectly fine warming the seat DJ Mbenga did before him.

Should've traded him for Kwame or an actual big.
