    I can't see any team taking this guy. He'd be ostracized immediately from any team he goes to.

    "The kid CAN play."

    If the Lakers are serious about dealing him and come off the "Top 5" straight up nonsense.

    There are some teams out there, he'd be perfect for ... T-Wolves, Nuggets, Suns, Spurs (he'd turn into awesome player, there), Hawks (see SA), Celtics, Bulls (if they still trade Butler)


    Speaking of which, I think a 3 way deal could work (not sure of exact details):

    Minnesota: Get Jimmy Butler or D'Angelo Russell and trade draft spots with the Lakers (#2).

    Los Angeles: Get Jimmy Butler and fall to (#5)

    Chicago: Receive D'Angelo Russell and filler

    Exactly, he's like the guy that nobody would be comfortable socializing with from the get go. He ruined his own life.

    If there was anything short of harden that could get this guy to play in Houston I'd trade. 4 1st round picks?

    This dude is nice I see a breakout season coming, think playing with Kobe he really couldn't show what he was about, he plays under control, has a shot, true PG skills, controls the floor, cp3/ tony Parker type upside.

    I can almost see the Lakers saying: we always believed in DLo’s potential and leadership, a true Laker for life, great fit with Brow and Bron

    I can’t understand why DLo is even considering the Lakers SMH
