I would jump in a three way trade and trade someone like Lin for a 1st rounder. If OKC and Brooklyn need a third dance partner.

Arvedus Sabonis has a better chance of staying healthy coming out of retirement than Brooke Lopez does.

Lakers aren't in the mix lol... It said they are interested but likely don't have the assets to make it happen... That means they are not in the mix haha

OKC already traded their first for Waiters.

At this point who cares..

But this would be great, and feasible.

I don't understand why the price is as high as it is. A big man with injuries is a money pit IMO.

I would do that. It would give LA young players while maintaining 2016 cap flexibility. Are you sure the Hornets would do that? Lance Stephenson for Jordan Hill?

Another potential suitor that will at least be interested in contending next season is the Lakers. Los Angeles may be struggling this season, but all signs point away from any sort of rebuild. The team reportedly dangled a first-round pick last month in an attempt to acquire Rondo and although that pick (originally from Houston) is projected to be a late first-rounder, the Nets would most likely be interested in it, though that’s just my speculation. The Lakers have a pair of point guards with expiring contracts (Steve Nash with a more than $9.7MM cap hit and Jeremy Lin with a more than $8.4MM cap hit) that would allow the Nets to definitively lower their team salary next season.The Lakers also have an intriguing big man in Jordan Hill, but he essentially has a de facto no trade clause in his contract because the deal he signed is technically a one-year pact. If Hill were to agree to be traded to Brooklyn, the Nets would bring back a productive center and possibly still be in contention for a lower playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

Lopez is a good scorer, averaging 14.8 points per game this season, and he provides elite rim protection as well. The center boasts a player efficiency rating of 19.23, which is above league average. Seven-footers with these skills are hard to come by and the current market for centers makes having one very favorable. The Nets shouldn’t have an issue finding a trade for Lopez; it’s just a matter of finding the right team with the combinations of assets to make it beneficial for Brooklyn to part with the seventh-year big man.

No trades unless we are acquiring picks.

I sure hope the lakers plan to contend next year isn't going after brook Lopez...

Brook Lopez $15,719,000 $16,774,000

Lakers and Nets are in the luxury tax. Only players close to Lopez salary is Lin even up.

Jeremy Lin $14,898,938

Nash is a injured expiring $9.7M. But Nets already said they are willing to make some trades and break up their main core of Williams, Johnson, Lopez. But they still wanna win. So Nash wouldn't help. More like rearrange the deck chairs on the titanic. So doubt they take Nash unless a sweetener was added like Randle but he's injured as well. Also doubt Lakers wanna attempt to win games now cause Lakers have to be top 5 lottery to keep the pick. Hill and Boozer for Lopez? Not sure how Lakers fit into this trade really. Probably why it was mentioned Lakers have interests but unlikely happening.

Of course it would be great, but I doubt that you can call that feasible.

If it were though, im all for it. Im also gona trade the NASH expiring + fillers for that other Plumlee who's being "actively" shopped in Phoenix.

Plumlee-Black-Sacre
Davis-Booze-Kelly
Young-Jones
Lance-Ellington
Jackson-Price-Clarkson

Sign a max player this summer and youve got a team for 2015-2016. Should the other bigs [Hibbert and Monroe] command a big paycheck close to that of Marc Gasol's, then go for him. Otherwise:

1.) Try and sign Asik for less than $10M.
2.) Snatch Kevin Love
3.) Inquire about the other UFAs
-JJ Barea
-Danny Green

Asik-Plumlee
Love-Randle
Green-Jones
Lance-Ellington
Jackson-Barea-Clarkson

That's an overhaul without Kobe on the roster.

He's probably just talking out of his ***... but I hope he isn't. Every day Jim and Mitch are here is another completely wasted day, in terms of progressing toward our next championship. And it would be great if the Busses sold the team.. Jerry is dead, it's a new era... time to move on. I would love for the Dodgers group to buy the Lakers.
