"Use of nurkic, you're not getting them for that price. Not getting it for that price probably winds up staying in Portland unless they go get Zach lavine themselves. But you're not getting it for that price. TJ Warren also probably not getting them for that price. But somebody to keep an eye on. Hasn't played basketball in two years, really. Has it played basketball since the bubble? But injuries. So I don't know if that's even something you want to deal with if you're the Lakers. You've already had all these injury issues. But 28 going to be 29. Swingman brings you something in the offensive end. If you wanted to do a one year prove it deal somewhere, okay, sure. But I'd be surprised. I think somebody will be willing to give more. The Lakers, I've been saying it for a while now. The Lakers have to bat a thousand. Every single move they make has to be a hit, and so you want to mitigate risk as you're going through there. So I don't know if TJ Warren is going to be on their list. Jeremy lamb is a player that they were rumored to have interested interest in when he was with the pacers. Now he's traded the kings, the kings are rumored to like him, but he's out there. If you can get them for cheaper, younger ish, 30 shooting guard, okay, maybe. Serge Ibaka, done that montrez harrell, don't think he's coming back. Yeah, mantras Harold, look, I liked tres, but that didn't work out well. Derek Jones junior. So this is somebody he's at 9.4 million, but didn't play a lot for Chicago. Can't shoot very well from outside, but super athletic could be an interesting wing to target because he's not going to be the top of everybody's wing list. Most people are going to have auto Porter junior at the top of their list. Derrick Jones junior, he can defend, he can definitely defend my crazies, a really good defensive player. Again, can't shoot, but if you can't find shooters, I'm at the point where I'm saying, give me defenders first. Give me defenders, and if a guy can shoot league average from three, I'll take that. That's a hit. Derek Jones junior can't do that..

"Hey, this is an emergency podcast and this should be because of a massive trade between the pacers and the kings, the fold details are this. The bonta sabonis is going to Sacramento with Jeremy lamb Justin holiday in a 2027 second round pick for tyrese Halliburton, buddy healed and Tristan Thompson. This is a big deal for both of these franchises considering how long the bonus has been involved in trade talks, considering how long, but he healed his wanted out of Sacramento. And to talk about it, I brought on sear it so he and then Logan Murdock from the ringer to talk about it and we recorded this live on green room, so before it got on and after her and Logan got off, I had to question from the chat, brought people on stage. We had a Q&A, talked about a whole bunch of stuff. And I want a 100% be doing more green rooms, either Tuesday night, Wednesday, Thursday morning, who knows. I'm gonna be doing more of them before the NBA trade in line at 3 p.m. eastern on Thursday. So stay tuned to my Twitter feed for that or download the Spotify green room map and that will notify you any time I go live. And some of those will be posted on the mismatch or the ringer NBA show feed. But you know, not all of them will be. So stay tuned for those, and otherwise, enjoy this conversation. I imagine this has been very much discussed, but I'm very stuck on the Thai Halliburton of it all. What has you stuck? How do you trade him? How do you trade him? This deal, I don't know, I'm excited to go through the nuances of it, I guess, but right now in the face of it, I'm looking at it and I'm like, wow, the king's traded Thai Halliburton buddy healed so they could maybe try to make a run for the 7 seed, you know? So one of the things that I asked nakai is I'm like, I don't necessarily believe this, but playing devil's advocate with myself and everybody here listening. With the kings there, we view tyrese Halliburton as 21 years old and the second year of his entire NBA career is just the beginning. And he's already so good. Fox is out last month and he's averaging 21 points and 12 assists, and he looks great. And it's just this fun player who brings life to the floor and energy. He's just a joy to watch. But right now, sabonis is better. Sabonis is the best player in the deal undeniably. Undeniably he's the best player in the deal today is a two time all star. If you're the kings, I wonder if privately they think, yeah, Halliburton is a really nice young player, but he's not going to be a top 25 guys. He's not going to be an annual all star candidate. Why not? They feel that way. Why not is my question, but is there any logic to that if Sacramento does feel that way at all? Is there any logic to that? If they feel he's going to cap out as like a nice player, a winning player, but not an all star player, and that they might say, what's everybody talking about? We got the best player in the deal. I mean, they could definitely think that, right? You know who it's the kings, right? Definitely think that. But the way that I look at it, and I kind of look at everything's player this way, or every young king's player this way is that ty Halliburton looks this good on the kings, you know? Rookies aren't really even supposed to look that good on teams that are that dysfunctional honestly. A lot of the times, you know, we know how important player development and all those things are. So I think this is a win for him, right? I feel like this is a win for Rick Carlisle. He'll get to coach ty Halliburton, who's also, by the way, just seems on all accounts. Somebody who has the right habits as well, who came into this team with ray habits and was perpetually from what I've seen so far. Early in his career, his consistently made incremental improvements improved on last year's numbers. And he's a really great playmaker. He's really intuitive player. He presents things to you that I just don't think you can get from your average young prospect. You know, just the potential that he has because of the way that he reads the game. He's already ten times smarter than a lot of it, veteran NBA players. So I don't know. I don't think that there's really way too early to put a cap on who he can be. And on the other end of it, I agree, right? I agree. But it's just like trading. They traded, I guess, the future for the present, but it just, it just doesn't really make that much sense. Yeah, I mean, I think you nailed it when you said Halliburton's made these incremental improvements as a player. And the big knock on him coming into the NBA out of Iowa state as well. He has all these great intangible qualities, but can he create his own shot off the dribble? And he's become a guy where I remember that game against the sixers about a week or so ago. And he hits these two crazy sidestep dribble jumper three pointers with a defender right over him and the fourth quarter. And he does that consistently. He's got the floater for mid range. He looks so smooth, pulling up, just a traditional pull up from two. Like I said, you get the floater. He just can't, at this moment, he's not a guy who really penetrates into the paint and draws files or really even finishes at a high level around the basket. But his handle is so much tighter. He uses hesitations. He can pull up from anywhere from different angles, different areas of the court. He just, I think Halliburton, in my own personal evaluation, he went from a guy that you feel a high level of confidence that will at least be a good role player or a very good player who impacts winning in a starting lineup. He went from that to at least for me, I felt like a guy that could potentially be one of your two or three best players. The best player on your team? No, I don't think so. I don't think the bonus is or can be that either. But Halliburton can be one of your best guys. And that's why it's just my overall thought here is just to just sabonis is good, but nikaya said it earlier. If you're a trading tyrese Halliburton, it feels like you get to be getting back a top ten to 15 guy. Like you're trading up to that level with a team that's rebuilding. And they want to blow it up and Halliburton's the young player they want back. And Indiana isn't necessarily in that situation. They're more in a retooling phase. They're changing assets. They're not rebuilding here. So I don't know, man. I just don't feel good about it. I don't feel good. I think you nailed it there about how it was, you know, sometimes you do trade the present for the future, right? It was just what they got back. And that's no disrespect to sabonis. He is like you said, he's the best player in this deal, and he's also for Fox. Gonna be a really fun pick and roll partner too. Like there's an encore thing about this. That's actually, it feels a little bit irrelevant right now, honestly. But it could also be pretty fun. We can we can get that later, but I think you nailed it just, you gotta get more back..

"It's a little bit. It's a little late in this kind of transaction period. And I'm not sure what teams are going to be interested at this stage. A lot of guys that, you know, a lot of guys are locked up at this point because they can't be traded until December 15th. So that's going to limit your options. But the report also suggested that, look, Jeremy lamb he had a lot of injury issues last season. So a lot of teams are saying, well, we're interested, but we want to wait and see if he's healthy for. So maybe this is a guy just to keep an eye on and we'll see him moved midseason. Yeah, he got back about Blake January. He came back, so when he came back from that injury, with the pacers after in 2020, he tore his ACL. So about a year later, which that's roughly the going time frame for an ACL injury. And yeah, he was a little rough last year. So we'll see where he looks better this year. My guess is this is when we talk about this a lot. Who does this benefit to put this out there? And I think this is one that benefits both the pacers and Jeremy lamb because it starts saying like, hey, there's teams who want them. I think the article which was by J Michael of the Indy star who has proven to be pretty well connected to the pacers and their players. He said the Lakers had reached out, makes sense, right? Now was that the Lakers reached out and the end of July when they had built their bench. Yeah, or was that recent? Because it also he makes $10.5 million. How do the leakers get there? That's a little odd. But he also mentioned Charlotte hornets where lamb had played previous. They could actually maybe use another wing. Score, they don't have a lot of guys in that role where the pacers do. I mean, you mentioned levert and Chris duarte, but they signed toward Craig. They still have Justin holiday on that team. TJ Warren still plays quite a bit at the three for them. So that's a team that's they've got an awful lot of guys who play that same position. So that says to me, I bet lamb gets run early in the year as a duarte is transitioning into the NBA and lamb is showcased for a move down the line. That's my guess is how that one plays out. So he's going to be kind of the training wheels or whatever for Chris duarte to come in and he missed him. You missed it. You could have done with he's gonna be the sacrificial lamb for Christopher today. Oh man. I've got Keith. I have too much football on my brain. I was trying to get to Andy Dalton and Justin Fields somehow. I was trying to make that connection and then oh man. I went for the easy one man. I'm too tired after putting puppy duty and being up all night with this guy every few hours to make long ones. I went for the simple one. That one was definitely better. And it was sitting right in front of me like I said, I have too much fantasy football on the brain. I love it..

"And you mentioned they didn't have a front of the bench block ball. So it's hard to go from being a player to a coach in the same locker. It's very hard. Because instant we talked about this with you, Donna's has a mom, one other episode. The relationship just changes immediately. You're not you're not in the locker room with them like that anymore. You're not, hey, no, you're not doing the dinners, you're not doing that stuff anymore. So it's just very different. And that becomes a little bit awkward. So yeah, I think for him to go with a guy. He's familiar with Jason Kidd to a team where I think he can really help out guys like Luca, even porzingis and those kind of guys. I think he's got just a perspective. He can kind of give because I think what Jared Dudley to what gets missed is he at one point looked like he was done in the NBA, early in his career, and then he caught on with the suns. And rebuilt his body, got himself in a really good shape. And then it looked like, again, a few years later, like he was going to be done. And then he turned into this guy that everybody wanted to sign to be on their bench at the end of the year. So and I get it from the Lakers perspective. I think if they had more definite depth that they knew 100% was going to be fine, you can give him your 14th or 15th roster spot. I think they need to look at guys who just you need to be certain they can play 50, 60 games if you need them to. And I'm not sure sold that that's Dudley at this point in his career. But like you said, he's been looking to make this transition for a while. So this is great. And I bet he is either going to be a head coach within four or 5 years, or he's going to transition to running someone's moving his way up the front office ladder. He has him on that side. He's talked about how he either wanted to be in the coaching tree and wanted to go that route. Or he owns someone to keep his option open to be a GM. If he can hear our little guy, I didn't hear a little guy Tatum, is he he's letting his presence be known here? My wife just got home and he's one of the other ones started. So he's like, oh, we're barking. I'm gonna do that too. So he's a very deadly coaching. Whatever the big dogs do, he wants to do too. So he's letting him fly. But yeah. Let's go to. I guess there was a little bit of a trade rumor coming on here. Jeremy lamb, potentially on the move. Yeah, the Indiana Pacers. $10.5 million expiring contract that's coming season. They brought in Chris duarte. They already have Karis levert in there. So question in terms of how many minutes are really there in pawnee to give to give him so it makes a lot of sense. I always have to. I have to. I love that show too much to not reference that. That's so good. But yeah, I mean, look, it makes sense for them to move him..

"But see, that's why we're so high on him, right? It's because he is so, so young and already has an elite skill set, which is driving to the rim, right? If you already have that, you've already got a pretty good building block. Now it's just flushing out the rest of his game. He's looked good in the Chicago programs, those clips that have been floating around online. He looks skinnier. He looks way more fit. The jump shop has looked nicer. We made a big deal about him working out with lethal shooter and Phil handy and stuff. So, you know, he's been in the gym working on his game. And I can't imagine that another summer of off season development. There's just no way he doesn't come back better. And what better looks like? Remains to be seen, like maybe he likes a better jump shooter, maybe he's a better defender. But if he's better in any of those areas or he just doubles down on what he's already good at, the Lakers have got a really good young talent going forward. And I'm super excited to watch him as well. I just didn't bring him up because we were talking about you guys. But if we're talking about guys currently at the roster, I think THC is for sure going to be one of the main storylines this season because you know, outside of Russell Westbrook, he's also a next factor here. The rest of the Laker guys on the roster are very much role players. THT is the only one that kind of you kind of look a little harder at and say, you know, he has got to be a role guy this year. But he also has just the most upside the most potential star power on the Lakers roster here. They have them for three more years here under contract. So the sky is the limit for THD. I still don't have any idea what he's going to be, but I just always going to be a good NBA player. Well into my 40s, I think at this point. He is tremendous, right? When you look at what he can do in terms of driving to the basket, getting there, he's already got that in his bag. But now, if you can add the jump shot if you can add a little bit more experience in the defensive end of the floor, he could really leap to the next level. I'm not saying he's going to be a superstar, right? That's not what we're projecting here. But he's got plenty of upside plenty of room for growth. And I can't wait to see what he looks like. I can't wait to see what all of that turns into this next scene. So that's why I'm really excited for him, but thank you said realistically like we're excited for all of these guys. We're excited just for Lakers basketball to get back out there on the floor particularly after a true off season. Let's just let's just fast forward. Bring us to the beginning of October. Let's get into some preseason action. Let's just get that going. Yeah, I just want to end on this note and this one just caused my mind. THT, if everything works out with the Lakers, he could be the first player that me and my future children end up watching together. That to me is deep..

"Yeah, I've definitely stayed course. Even through those 2014, 2018 seasons when things fall. Yup, praying for ping Pong ball. So yeah, I think 2009 was when I hit my absolute peak as a fan just because again, they were coming up that 2008 loss. That's why I hate Paul Pierce and the Celtics to this day and I will always hate them to this day. Side note. You know you're a Laker fan when it's not the clippers out of your biggest rival or the team that annoys you most. Definitely the Celtics produced still. I just can't and I hate that they have such likeable guys Jason Tatum, jaylen Brown, et cetera. It just makes so hard to root for them. Just because of where I can't wait for Jason Taylor. Jason Tatum 2026. Can you hear me here first? So I think Schumer is just for the nostalgia factor. Obviously, it doesn't have much left in the tank. I don't think. But I think you'll still have a role. So I think seeing him, that can purple and gold, like I mentioned, will be really fun to see. But as far as you know, guys on the Lakers, I think I'm most excited to see Malik monk. Okay. Just because he had such he had a pretty good year with Charlotte last year. I know that's relative to you know his first couple seasons where he was either dealing with injuries or he was just inconsistent. You know, kind of going through those young player adjustments to the MBA. But we have to remember that he was a top talent. He was a lottery pick when he got drafted by out of Kentucky. There's still some untapped upside there. I just wrote an article on Lakers nation dot com. I can do plugs to show up. Yeah, thank you. I didn't realize this, but Austin Reeves and Malik monk are the same age. They are both 23 years old. Okay. And then, you know, that interview was because Austin Reeves and Malik monk actually were actually played against each other in Arkansas. So they have a bit of a relationship already. But that just kind of goes to show you monk was drafted in the deer and box draft. If I remember correctly, so that was in 2017. So he's been in the league for 5 years now and him and reuse are the same age. So that just goes to show you that he's still young, has that potential. He's a high fly act that guy can get up. He has he's got massive bounce on the Lakers he probably outside of Westbrook and LeBron might be the most athletic guy on the team. So Russell Westbrook, down the lane, if you've got Malik monk filling the lane and you can throw him a lob, I think that'll be fine. He's an excellent shot maker. He can make tough shots. You know, good outside shooter. So I think I'm excited to see what Malik monk can do. I don't know necessarily how the minutes distribution is going to play out quite yet, because he's not a great defender. But just as far as offensive upside and just the electric vector from a young guy, I think Malik monks definitely a guy I'm going to have my eye on. Yeah, that's a great pick..

"Just put it somewhere in the back of your brain and next summer kind of remember it because Jeremy land, like I said, expiring contract. He'll be a free agent next year. The Lakers at least being rumored to have some interest now might turn into something a year from now, okay? So again, very unlikely that they land Jeremy lamb right now, but just something to file away. In case he has a nice scene at season, if he can stay injury free, just keep it in mind for next summer. Yeah, let's just say Indiana for whatever reason can't offload and expiring contract at 10 million, which is not too bad at all. There's also the possibility of a buyout if the two sides can agree to anything. That same Indiana star reports mentioned that because the pacers have Keras the vert, and they just drafted Chris duarte. There's really no room for Jeremy lamb, even if he's able to play. So again, if they can't find a landing spot for him in a trade, I think they could. Sam press is probably licking his chops right now. If they can't find a deal for him, I wouldn't be surprised about a bio situation either. And the Lakers still have, guess what? Three rosters spots open. It sounds like they're waiting for a guy to come free. Jeremy lamb's that guy comes February or not, but maybe march. I could see it happening as well. So just another thing to keep in mind. I think one of those roster spots is open for the eventuality that Rajon Rondo or perhaps Kevin Love get bought out. Maybe both. What I see in this going towards like, if not, if that was not the goal here for the Lakers and you were really choosing between Isiah Thomas, Mike James, right like these types of guys, Darren Collison, you would have just signed one of those guys already, right? So they're waiting for things to develop to see what happens. Who gets cut? Who gets bought out? There's some teams that have too many players on their roster right now, including the Memphis Grizzlies. So I have a feeling the Lakers are paying very close attention to what happens there with Rajon Rondo. And wouldn't mind seeing him back, you know, obviously he's got some shortcomings still on the floor, but his ability to act as like a coach out there. I think that's something that can be really important for the team. And I like that. I also like that he's the kind of guy that can get guys open looks. We can certainly complain about his own defensive effort, maybe playoff rondo appears again, the three point shooting, that's a concern as well. But for an end of the bench guy, rondo's intelligence, I think would be a would be a nice bit. Yes, to all those things, also a former Laker regret rondo. That's true. That's real, so check that box. Pretty much, if you wanted to be a Laker this season, you had to have been a Laker in a season before, right? It's like it's like Pirates of the Caribbean, right? Whatever it is, the ela de Muerta can only be found by people who already know where it is..

"Have missed that physicality. And sometimes Dwight committed dumb fouls, you know, files that he just absolutely shouldn't have. But other times you kind of needed that little bit of nasty that Dwight Howard brings to the game where you know he's gonna set bone crushing screens that are always right on that line of being a foul and not, you know, where opponents are feeling it. Sometimes you kind of need that. And so I think they would have missed that with boogie in there, but boogie is certainly an interesting talent as well. Kobe's 81. I missed it live. I missed it. It happened on my it happened on my dad's birthday. And we all went out to dinner and I got home, turned on the TV and saw the end of it had to call him and tell him dad, did you just see what happened? He was no what? I said, Kobe scored 81. He went Kobe scored what? And he ran and turned on the TV and we were able to watch the replay from there. But yeah, so I missed I missed Kobe's 81 live and I'll have to always remember that. I think for me and not to make you sound old, Trevor, but I was still in middle school I was 12 years old when that game happened. Yeah, I was 12 years old, I remember, I just got home from school a couple hours ago. I was doing my thing, and then you know, I used to watch Lakers game religiously with my dad as well. So we were just in the living room and watching it and I don't think a lot of people remember this, especially younger fans, younger than me even, but the Lakers were actually losing that game against Toronto. They were down in the first half. I think COVID at that point had, I believe it was 27 points in the first half. And I was like, okay, he's probably going to go 50. And then, you know, the third quarter starts and Colby can't miss. He's unconscious. You know, I remember all that pretty vividly and then you know, just in case anyone has been wondering if there's a game that I wish Twitter existed for. I think it would be Kobe's 81. Yeah. I think people would freaking out. And yeah, I remember at the end of the game, Kobe had 81. I remember the free throws. Yeah, I hit two. He was at 79. I was like, I hope he just makes at least one, so it's a nice 80. But he ends up hitting both, and it's 81 points. And, you know, it goes down in MBA history as the second highest scoring game ever behind wealth. So I'll always remember that. It's just those kinds of moments. And you know what the thing that's even crazier think about is that this was in the era where three point shooting wasn't quite a thing. Very much a mid range game much lower pace. Kobe was doing this routinely against double and triple teams because the raptors were like, he's obviously not passing the ball. So let's just go ahead and throw as many bodies as possible. And he's still able to do that. By far one of the best games that I've ever seen. And for sure, what I'll remember? Absolutely. Absolutely one to never forget. That's for sure. Sean first of all from YouTube said, what about getting Marquis Chris to replace Mark? Not a name that I've heard a lot recently. Marquise Chris. So if Marcus all decides, I'm going to leave or the Lakers decide we're going to trade him. We're going to whatever they're going to do..

"Okay, let's get into some of the questions and comments from fans here. I've got some people asking about Jeremy Lin. We will get into that. Declan Pollard from YouTube, the super chat. Thank you very much. Said I was watching film from 2020. I think Russ works best in the role he had in Houston, January to March but on less volume attacking from the wing as the second ball handler. I do think Russ is going to have plenty of opportunities as the lead ball handler whenever LeBron is out. But I think him acting as the second guy as more of a slasher as that off ball guy, really fine tuning that and getting him 100% to buy into that role when that's what's required of him. That's going to be critical because you know he's not going to space the floor. Teams aren't going to care if he's camped out behind the three point line on LeBron's got the ball. The question is more, what is he going to do as a slasher to keep defenses honest? And if he can do that well, that's going to open up a lot a lot here for the Lakers. You know, I've been toying around with this idea a lot, and I don't know if we'll ever see this lineup. But if they pulled it out in the preseason, I would be giddy. I've been thinking a lot about what if the Lakers just decided to mess around and play ultra small Lakers basketball with LeBron, Russ and three shooters. We've seen LeBron handles some center minutes. I think we saw as soon as the playoffs last season really, where they didn't have an answer for center because they were trying to match up with Venus going small, so they moved LeBron there. I could see a world where the Lakers go incredibly small, they brought out the 5 and then Russ kind of acts as the de facto file on offense, meeting that, you know, they're running pick and rolls rest in LeBron. They can flip that. And then you've got so much space around the perimeter. If you've given them three or legitimate shooters, defensively, it's probably a train wreck, and I don't think that's why we'll ever see it. That's just not Frank Vogel's thing. But from a purely offensive standpoint, I think it's pretty intriguing look if you really look around the league and figure out what big man can LeBron not really guard. I don't think you'd put them against jokic and the big guy, like the big big centers in the league. But if you're talking just like a regular season game, this other team's not that great. You want to tinker with some lineups. I think that would be a really interesting look from a fan's perspective, just because the offensive firepower, the transition opportunities, we talk about that a lot, but imagine if you just had 5 perimeter guys, all of Houston, I don't know. Well, it's the Houston micro ball strategy, but the difference is LeBron is 6 9 and just massive, right? Like that's the difference there, right? So you still have a guy who LeBron's not gonna be typically a center, but it's not like he's 6 5, right? Like this is a guy who is huge and can be a major factor on the board..

"It's pretty safe to assume we'll also see more outside shooting or three point attempts. We've talked about this before, but the Lakers were one of the lower three point shooting teams in terms of volume last season. So I think that goes way up as well. You don't use many shooters if you're not planning on using them. So I feel like, you know, as far as the offense goes, we'll see more patients based principles more modern MBA, so to speak offense. It sounds pretty simple on its face. But I think it's true. You run pick and roll all of the Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook or LeBron James. You have the help guy come over the corner. You kick that out to a shooter, who either takes the shot or swings it to the next guy. I think you'll see a lot of those, but that's just next season as well. Obviously, the defensive slippage is going to be inevitable given who's on the roster. But I think offensively, you'll see a more modern MBA looking style one as well as the transition opportunities going. Well, that all sounds great because realistically, what you're talking about there when you say, hey, more transition opportunities. Great. That's exciting, right? That's fast break basketball. That's, I mean, look for lack of a better term. That showtime. And maybe that's setting the bar too high. But that's what we're talking about, right? Getting out and running. Getting down transition, I can't wait. I'm here for that. Sign me up for that 100%. I want to see the Lakers get out and run, even though they've got this older roster. The pieces that they've got can be devastating in transition, particularly with Russell Westbrook. Absolutely leading the way. And then you mentioned the more modern NBA offense. And for me, it's almost a little bit of a source of frustration that we see so many teams kind of just copy each other, right? I mean, every single team across the NBA runs the high pick and roll to death. That's pretty much what you see. Space the floor, high pick and roll, rinse, and repeat, right? That's what you see from most offenses. But what's got me excited is what does it look like when you've got Russell Westbrook running? And what does it look like? We've got LeBron running. What does it look like when you've got a D and you have actual spacing around them? We haven't really seen that yet. And now you've got shooters who not only shoot a high percentage from three, but will shoot the ball. Teams didn't worry about Alex Caruso in the corner. Because they knew that the majority of the time he's probably not going to shoot that shot. That's not going to be true of Carmelo Anthony. That's not going to be true of Wayne Elliot. And I'm not saying there isn't a drawback to the going to those guys. Yeah, you sacrifice defensively, but on the offense run to the floor. I'm expecting a much more dynamic team that can create a whole host of problems for opposing defenses. So I can't wait to see how all of this comes together..

"For everything. I don't think it's ever going to feel real. And I don't think it's ever going to be completely okay. It's just one of those things where we kind of have to just bite your Jersey, so to speak and just keep trudging on like Kobe would. So that's what helps me. That's what keeps me going. That's what that canvas is in the background for, you know, so although a couple of you might not be here physically with us anymore, you know, that spirit that mentality that willingness to attack challenges head on, that's something that I carry every day and so you know, I hope that's something that people can lean on themselves and look for comfort whenever the chips are down or times are rough. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. But again, Lakers nation, we're here for you guys. We've got everybody piling in with all their comments and questions. And a lot of people talking about how much Kobe meant to them. So that's great to see. Appreciate all of you coming in from YouTube from Facebook from periscope always great to be able to come here and talk Lakers basketball. We've mentioned this before on previous shows right now. We're kind of in that limbo period right now, right? We're the most part free agency has done the Lakers still have a few roster spots. And we'll talk about those in just a bit. We're gonna get into what might they might do with those open roster spots. But for the most part, free agency is kind of coming to a close and now we're getting ready for the season to start up and about a month. We're gonna see training camp kick off and so there's a lot to still discuss but in terms of the news flying at us like it was just a few weeks ago, that's definitely slowed down. So now we can kind of start breaking down some other stuff. Like how the team's really going to play stylistically. And of course, you know, while we're doing that, we're always going to be remembering Kobe and everything that happened there. And of course, tomorrow being Bomba day, August 24th, 8 and 24 together. We'll certainly be talking about that tomorrow as well. But let's just talk stylistically for a minute here Matt, Russell Westbrook joins the team. What are you looking to see from the Lakers on the floor next season? Because I have a feeling. And I let's focus offensively..

"With my eleven because like you said we had to select let me get my twelve. Okay yeah I'm sure that i actually. I have no idea where you have this team. I'm not even going to try to to guess. But i have no feel for them whatsoever. And that is the indiana pacers like you know. Rick carlisle's their head coach. I think that is definitely a positive. We know they're gonna play slow. We know they're gonna be a little bit better on offense. We know that especially in the half court they're going to be able to execute whatever you know. They're going to call a ton of time outs just the rick carlisle. Stampa there maybe trade bows turner this season. That's a little bit of a variable to account for tj warren. We'll be back He would miss basically last season with an injury. I just. I don't know. I don't know if like continuity is their friend. I don't know with everybody's sick of each other. I don't know how rick carlisle will mesh. I just i can't i have. I have no feel for this team. So i just i had to just kind of stick them at the bottom of the the acceptable organizations if that makes any sense so. I didn't do that but i did. Have my teams nine through eleven. So this was your twelve my my nine through eleven. I bracketed off and put in full letters. No idea i put the pacers in that nine spot while also acknowledging. I have no idea where they'll finish. They finished higher. They could obviously finish lower but what i thought about them was a lot of what you just said. They had really as many injuries as anybody last year. I think they were kind of strange injury. So i think they were the type that people didn't notice delivered after the trade needing surgery and you know basically learning that the guy you know had something that would have been cancer since by essentially had cancer so there was that jay warren missed essentially the whole year. Was it the whole year. I can't even remember at this point but tj more and miss that whole stretch. Jeremy lamb missed half the season miles. Turner missed a big chunk of the season. They discovered o'shea toward the end of the season. Who was a really nice piece for them and it sounded like they were dealing with quite a bit of turmoil within their locker. I'm just as far as whether or not these guys actually wanted to play for this first year coach they had. And now you bring in. Rick carlisle who is not necessarily the easiest personality to get along with but also has a championship pedigree to him knows what he's doing. And you know for the most part. The guys on that roster. You know from what i've seen at least are not guys that are seemingly that difficult to kind of get along with you know guys.

"Already. Hello everybody. Welcome into the Lakers Nation, YouTube channel. Today we're going to do a little mock trade, negotiation here. We know like this time a year there are a ton of trade negotiations that are flying and so we're going to do is we're going to mock-up what a trade negotiation would look like today between the Lakers and the Indiana Pacers. And we've got people representing both sides of that representing. The Lakers is going to be run government right here from lakersnation.com and Kate, Smith's going to be representing the Pacers coming in from realgm. Yahoo celticsblog all over the place off track, but especially the NBA front-office show which you guys should definitely go and subscribe to over on the the YouTube channel. Make sure you guys do, subscribe right there. Turn on notifications, we birth. Down the entire league. So make sure you check out NBA front-office YouTube channel. All right. Robin you want to kick this off for us? Yeah. So you know all the reports were hearing is that the Lakers are going after that difference-making playmaker. So I would be remiss if I did not start these negotiations by going after one of the better difference-making Playmakers in the league and that's Malcolm Brogdon. A Malcolm Brogdon is a very good player looking at all of this Statistics, all his numbers, he's really great. He makes twenty one point seven million next year which is not a hefty price tag for someone of his caliber. So let's let's see. Let's kick the negotiation off here. Let's see, I probably want to get well for sure. Kyle kuzma is involved in that deal. Kyle kuzma makes about thirteen million, so that's great there. And then we'll throw in. I don't know if I want to use this card so soon will throw in the first round. Pick this year, the 22nd overall pick and then we will throw in Montrezl Harrell on a who opted-in took his deal. We're assuming that. Yeah, no interest in Harold. Doesn't have a place on on our team. It's not that he's not a good player just doesn't fit with Turner Inn sabonis. That doesn't make sense for us. Off Cruise. Interesting gives us another stretch element to the front court. So that makes some sense. We would absolutely have to have the the pick this year. Of course. On, let's see for Brogden, we would want. So kuzma has to be there for salary matching purposes. So you've got to get to a little bit more money there to send out. Let's see. Let's do Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Kuzma and think it'll work or it's gets in the ballpark and off you take on. Jeremy Lamb, but we want your pick this year and.
