    1 or 2 picks and young players are enough for them. I don’t know the Thunder swaps are protected or not.

    Beasley, Nuggets, 2.7 mil salary
    Nuggets have no tax cap to resign him.

    Duncan Robinson, Heat, 1.4 mil
    Heat don’t need him much, need a future pick.

    Alex Burks, GS, 2 mil
    GS need to dump repeater tax for next season.

    Kuzma, Lakers, 2.0 mil
    Not a shock to me, needs 3way deal for a laker to get a young point guard

    Bogdan B, Kings,
    They don’t have enough money for him in summer.

    ...because teams are willing to trade away cheap young talent.

    Only Alec Burks is "realistic" (and the Rockets don't need any more guards).

    Lakers are not trading Kuzma this season....unless it got them one of Lebron's buddies.

    Close to 0 chance on Kuzma

    Jared Vanderbilt in Denver is stuck behind a logjam of forwards but he can play both positions, stretch the floor and only makes 1.6 mil.

    Skal Labissiere is seeing a minutes reduction with Melo now being force fed in the starting lineup. He can stretch the floor at the 4 or 5 spots and rebounds deceptively well. Makes 2.3 mil this season.

    Josh Jackson is averaging 23 ppg off of 43% three point shooting in the g league. I don't know if his court cases and off the court issues are over but I'd be willing to take a chance on this dude, makes 6 mil this season

    And Michael Beasley

    Bucks is a top tier wing bench defender.

    It’s not going to be a trade. Any trade we make will likely be to dump salary.

    watch the buyout market. I’d love to grab Marvin Williams.

    well, we have two threads this forum to acquire new 180 million dollars.
    Demar DeRozan
    Kevin Love

    Harden doesn’t want to trade Westbrook.

    No chance at Kuzma, Lakers seems to value him very highly.

    Add Skal Labiserie to your list. Perfect add for this team especially if POR tanks.

    Even then, I'm not sure if that would happen. AD has a pretty big say in the matter as well, and he might want to keep as many talented young pieces as possible for the time after LeBron retires. Davis has a player option after this season and the Lakers cannot afford to ignore his opinion.

    Beasley: Nuggets lose games last year to avoid us in playoffs. Willing to gift us young talent.

    Duncan Robinson: Heat don’t need him. Dude only in his second year on a cheap contract averaging 26 minutes a game and is starting during their impressive season thus far.

    Bogdon: Kings only option is to trade with us if they decide they don’t want him, rather than a handful of teams probably willing to beat our offer of 1 or 2 not great picks.

    Kuzma: a combination of all of the above

    1-2 picks and a young player are enough to pry either of those two away from the Lakers or Kings??

    I hope you're not posting somewhere that requires you to drive home...

    And originally, wasn't he the guy coming back in the Knight trade before Morey (or, more likely, Tillman) figured out they could dump 750k more by making it Shumpert instead?

    Not sure if this is a sarcastic post. But the bolded is purely the reason why the Heat wouldn't let go of a Duncan Robinson, Nunn or Herro.
