I hear Dwight’s on the market too. Definitely not the rim protector he used to be, but maybe being in LA again will light a fire under his bottom.

 

If they go for Dwight i hope it's to light an actual fire under his bottom.

No. Dwight is on par with Melo now. Only value is his name. Hard pass.

He’s pretty bad at protecting his own rim these days 😹

Beal is way more than a solid player, he would be the clear 2nd option on the current Lakers squad.  However, his contract is friendly enough that the Wizards would want at least 2 of the young guys, most likely Zo and BI, which would be giving up 2 of the guys that the Lakers currently have that are capable of being a ball handler and would force up the usage rate of LeBron, who is currently not playing nearly as much as he had to in previous seasons and will be a boon in the postseason (this is extremely important).  If the opportunity to sell Kuzma and Hart while their value is high presented itself, I would pull the trigger.  However, I think you would be better off getting someone like Ariza or Korver on the cheap and staying fluid for the upcoming off season.

I'd trade Kuzma and Hart and a 1st for Beal this offseason if they don't sign a max guy but that's something that has to wait for the offseason.  I think Beal is good but at some point you have to question how effect HE is as well.  The team is 6-12?  Can't put all that on Wall.

You're seeing alot more value there than I am.  SGs putting up 19/3/4 on 45% shooting while making $22m dont get me too excited.  I just dont see the need for Beal right now.  If we're looking purely to add a consistent 2nd scoring option, there are cheaper, reliable shooters out there.

We don’t need him, and it’d be a mistake to take on the contract right now considering we have bigger aspirations but he’s a much better player than those stats entail

He’s a legitimate shooter and 2 way player who can put up 20-30 relatively efficient points and in varied ways at a young age of 25 with room to grow

He also plays with a train wreck of a point guard who’s as bad of a ball dominant PG as any. Worse than Westbrook because at least Westbrook has justifiable production

This is probably one of my favorite posts on this forum. Makes me crack up every time I read it. Is there a way to save posts? Amazing.

Beal is exactly what we need. Knock down three point shooter and a great second option for LeBron. Lots left in his tank at only 25 years old.

Welcome to the boards!

 

I don’t think anyone would disagree that Beal would be perfect next to Lebron. But as many have said, it might not put us over the top in terms of beating the Warriors and it ruins our ability to sign a max level FA in 2019 AND the assets we give up to acquire Beal would prevent us from trading for AD. Also, by being out of the KD sweepstakes we increase the odds of the Warriors staying together.

 

All in all, it doesn’t make us a contender and it probably prevents us from becoming a contender.

 

That said, if the Lakers had another deal in place and were able to buy low on Beal and retain some of their assets, then perhaps it would be something to at least consider.

 

I mean, if the Wizards would do KCP, Hart, Kuz, ’19 1st for Beal and we then were able to turn Ingram into either Kemba, Middleton or similar while keeping Lonzo, then I think we’d be in business.
