Conley was never going there and I thought they sign Schroeder whether we're involved or not.Not to be a negative Nancy, but this Schroeder signing has me suspecting any WB trade will not involve the Jazz. Anybody have a more positive outlook?
Nope. They are very focused and motivated to clear cap-space.I bet the Lakers want Bogey, Markkanan, Beasley for their two picks. They would wait until Markkanan is eligible to be aggregated to be traded.
I mean, he was really bad last year and his shot kinda fell off a cliff. He's a fine depth piece but if your plan is relying on him to anchor the paint on a contender then your plan ****ing sucks.Everyone seems to forget the Lakers signed Thomas bryant in the off season. He is a good fit starting st the 5 because of his stretch capabilities
Yo, like maybe this lineup is too big yo, but the Lakers should be killing themselves to get this lineup on the floor:Alright, this is huge but I think it makes sense for everyone
Bogey, Turner, Beasley, maybe Vanderbilt (really kinda whoever is sendable that they want from us)
Westbrook, '26 blind swap (Lakers get the lowest of any picks that convey to Jazz in '26, including picks yet to be acquired), '27 super swap (Lakers get lowest of Jazz/Cavs/Wolves), '28 unprotected, '29 swap, and 2nds
Westbrook, '26 blind swap, '27 super swap, '29 swap, and 2nds
Bogey, Beasley, maybe Vanderbilt, THT
'28 unprotected pick, THT
-Lakers get a legit contender and every possible option heading into next offseason, including retaining their pick in '30 for trading if they want.
-Jazz get some huge dice to roll (could be crazy valuable or not valuable at all), clean up the roster logjam, improve their own pick, and stay under the LT.
-Pacers get a pretty killer return on a dude they've been meh about forever on and is an expiring contract.
