Has anyone heard of bfc? Or did he permanently move to lakersground?
Wouldn't surprise me. People who speak the loudest here are proven to be wrong quite often.
The thing is, no one wants Ingram and most NBA teams are not high on our young pieces like we are. We just have to accept that and stop saying trade this guy for this guy. Hope for a miracle and someone signs with us in FA.
Not true. Ingram still can be traded. We just have to make sure we sell to a team that is on Ingram's timeline. There are teams that will have more patience with Ingram while prioritizing the cap space to be had.
I think the Lakers should trade for a player that fits our team because we could improve that players trade value. We will have a much harder time improving Ingram's trade value long-term unless Ingram changes how he plays long-term.
Well according to a lot of people on here we could have traded Ingram and a pick for George or a couple guys for AD. so we can’t have it both ways, either people are high on them or they aren’t. I view them fhe same way I view 90 percent of young players, potential and moments of good play and bad, fine if you aren’t going for a championship.
Ingram trained this offseason to be a feature player. He should have trained to be a player who feeds off a feature player. If we can sell another team on his potential, we can still trade him.
See look. We don't know what the Lakers offered the Pacers for PG13 and what the Lakers offered the Spurs for Kawhi. But reports say that the Lakers were NOT willing to give up the whole lot for either player. If this is indeed confirmed true, then it's going to look extremely bad for the Lakers FO.
Right now as it stands, unless we somehow do some Kwame Brown for Pau Gasol type fleecing, no one can be attained this year via trade, simply because the Lakers are not going to offer the young guys for player that bring incremental success, and no team that has a superstar or all star wants what the Lakers have.
Bradley Beal can be had.
Bradley Beal could increase his trade value next to Lonzo/LeBron/Kuzma.
Some claim it would take us out of Free Agency this summer...that's not true. Beal would be a better trade chip than Ingram and there are a LOT of teams who would trade nothing for Beal this summer and we re-coup that cap space for a max player.
And the best reason to trade Ingram/KCP for Beal? Gives us a GREAT chance to win games THIS year. We should NEVER punt a year when we have LeBron. Waiting until the offseason to make a move is punting.
