No.

Here's the reality.  

Making a deal for Jimmy Butler when you have no intention nor possibility of contending within the next 2 seasons is stupid.   Particularly if you're trading your youth for them.  

Here's a bigger reality.  The league is the Warriors and the Cavs for the next 2-3 seasons.   So right now what the Lakers should be focusing on is developing their youth, so that in that 2-3 seasons from now period the Lakers are ready to make a run and try to be a team that can trouble Golden State or get close to upsetting them or feels one player away from doing so.  

You trade for Jimmy Butler if you're a team like Boston, which is on the cusp but need that final piece or so to push you over the top.   

You don't trade for Jimmy Butler when you're a mid 20 team unless you're gonna somehow land LeBron next, because that's the only way you're contending in a span of time that's relevant if you're in a position the Lakers are in. 

Buckle down and develop the youth.  It's development time, perfect time FOR development as we're not beating the Warriors anytime soon within the next 2 or so seasons. So why the heck would we throw together some mid-level team that's not gonna do anything and then has no youth to build upon? Precisely. 

So, no to Jimmy Butler, especially if it comes to trading our future away for him.  Let the Celtics give up Fultz for Butler instead.

is Russell going to be better than Butler??? I don't think so, he has more and less the same ceiling like a 2nd tier star.

Holy [expletive] u do that deal.

 

Sign Hayward in FA.

 

Somehow clear cap space for George.

 

Now that's a defensive juggernaut. 

 

PG: Ball

SG: Bulter

SF: Hayward

PF: George

C: Doesn't matter

 

That team makes it to the WCF. People who understand the new CBA, is this possible??

Not sure but seems Chicago doesn't get enough. I'd ask for #2 and Russell & Deng

First of all, i doubt this is legit.

Second of all, IF this was legit, we'd have to pull the trigger.  Russell is awesome, but Butler is on the books for 2 more sesaons and we'd be unloading Deng in the process, which would allow us to both try to push for a George trade AND have money for another max level player.

I wouldn't do this trade. You don't make a trade based on who you could possibly sign later. Butler coming by himself does nothing for this team at all.

Then why was it necessary to sack Mitch, Jim, John and the dozen other people in the organization if all we need to do is nothing?

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

If this rumor is true.  It' simply goes to show you just how highly some GMs around the league view Russell.

There is no way this is real. If it is then bulls management should be forced to sell. Also no way Lakers would have turned this down. Butler would be a laker right now if this was offered.

Man if this is true you do it!!! Butler is an already made player you know what he can do and it opens doors for more possibilities next year.  Plus you get the chance to get rid of Dengs contract. 

 

I am not for trading our young players but i will say do it for this one. we don't lose much by doing this.

Butler is a 2nd tier star though

 

And you know don't know the tier D'lo is doing to be. Plus that move he did by falling and letting us loose the ball tells a lot about his [expletive]ty attitude and lack of maturity. Even if he because 1st tier star that attitude will be worse. If you will get a player like Butler for him i say do it.

My problem is I think you could get jimmy butler, Paul George and Demarcus cousins and I don't think you compete with golden state

Unless you somehow keep the #2 pick and Ingram through all of that

That's why I don't see a point
