What Would the Lakers take for Randle?

Come the trade deadline the Lakers are going to be looking to dump Randle. At the same time I think the Sixers will be in the market for playoff help. What would it take for the Sixers to get Randle? Would Anderson and a high 2nd (Brooklyn) be enough?

I think Dario Saric and TJ

I think Dario Saric and TJ McConnell could get the job done for Julius Randle. The Lakers need guys on short deals or cheap rookie deals that can shoot the 3 and hit FT's, their two major weaknesses and keys for their style of play. McConnell would be a great backup for Lonzo as he is a pass first guy as well and then Clarkson can shift more to SG with the 2nd unit.

How about Fultz or Simmons

How about Fultz or Simmons while your at it... Sixers wouldn't trade TJ for Randle straight up.

1st off, Randle is a good

1st off, Randle is a good player. He's been the best isolation defender in the entire league when switched onto guards, opponents shooting 14/46 against him in those situations. Not a shooter yet, but has steadily improved over his 3 yrs in the league, and just barely turned 23 this week.

The Lakers won't trade him without at least a 1st rounder in return (like the Blazers did last year with Plumlee, the difference being they fleeced the Nuggets who gave up Nurkic too), will rather let him walk for nothing come July. The only question is how high that pick would be.

My guess is they trade him to a rebuilding team with multiple first round picks like Atlanta. Think Belinelli (as the Lakers need wing shooters) + Minnesota/Houston's pick in the 20's will get it done. Randle is worth that much.

You can't be serious? Randle

You can't be serious? Randle is RFA this off season and the Lakers having been signally that wont resign him. No way any team gives up that much for him.

You can't be serious with your offer. Justin Anderson and a 2nd does nothing for the Lakers. They need at least a 1st rounder for him, or a young asset on a cap friendly deal for a few years, or in a deal like you said where they get absolutely nothing in return get to shed one of their bad contracts (Deng).

Randle's going to walk for

Randle's going to walk for free this off season. How much do you expect teams to give up for a player in that situation?

don't justify it

nobody wants him man!

he's a classic "i just scored i've finally arrived let me try again" guy. One shot made makes him feel like he's a star. He is not a good basketball player, period. He belongs in like Memphis I guess.

I DO NOT WANT HIM in Philly, at all.

Your always spot on analysis of players

that aren't in a 76er's uniform continues.

As mentioned above Randle is currently ranked as the best isolation defender in the NBA. He guards 5 positions every night.

He is also the number one roll man in the NBA. Him and Capela have been swapping the top spot for the past 2 to 3 weeks.

If he's that great why does

If he's that great why does he play less than Nance and Kuzma? The guy is 8th in mpg on a bad team.

Even an expiring deal in

Even an expiring deal in return where the player is a shooter. Lakers also are trying to make playoffs this year so they just won't dump Randle for nothing in a deal that doesn't make sense since he is helping them. If they don't get a deal for an expiring shooter, 1st rounder, asset on longer rookie deal, or can shed Deng in the deal they let him walk which is no big deal since they have Nance and Kuzma and will need to shed money for free agency.

The Lakers aren't making the playoffs in the west. No way it that happens.

They have no reason not to

They have no reason not to try to make the playoffs though because they don't keep their pick no matter what. Lakers will try to win as many games as they can with no incentive to tank.

Absolutely true but come the

Absolutely true but come the trade deadline it will be obvious that they are not making it thus they'll either have to dump Randle or lose him for nothing.

Honestly, they should keep

Honestly, they should keep him. He’s been the best player on the team. He should be their starting center. Lopez is wrong for the team.J

The Lakers should have kept Russell and they should be going for guys like Nerlens Noel in the offseason: young guys with potential who haven’t pulled it all off yet. Or Mario Hezonja. But no, thry’ll try to sign LeBron... who will eventually be struck by Father Time and who won’t want LA anyway because they haven’t won enough or found any outside shooting.

I love how competitive Walton has made them, despite their record. Ingram is looking great. Randle looks great. Kuzma will be great. Ball will probably right himself.

Right now, fans across the league are salivating over the idea of getting Randle for cheap. Especially playoff teams (which he deserves to play on). I expect he’s traded when it becomes clear the Lakers can’t make playoffs. They need a lottery pick for him, top 3 protected.

I don't understand how Randle

I don't understand how Randle could be had on the cheap. A team would have to give up picks or prospects this year and then will have to sign him in the off-season.

If the Lakers are considering

If the Lakers are considering not resigning Randle then his RFA rights would be of interest to a number of teams. The Lakers didn't extend him as his guaranteed money would eat into their cap space next summer but his qualifying offer would not take up much cap space.

If the Lakers are going after big name FA's then they can return to Randle after those negotiations have taken place. If Randle signed a qualifying offer with another team then Lakers would have 72 hours to decide to match or pass. As FA tends to work from the top down, they may well have done their big name chasing by the time Randle signs an offer sheet with another team if it happens.

The Mosgov and Deng signings have really haunted the Lakers, they had to give up Russell to get Mosgov out. At least they are in prime position to resign Brook Lopez if they want and KCP was only given a one year deal.

Perhaps they were holding cap space for PG13 but then he went to Thunder which may complicate things.

Memphis

Parsons/2nd rounder for Randle/ Deng. Nobody really gains or loses anything but Randle could thrive and Parsons could escape the scrutiny.

Why would Lakers take on Parson's equally hideous contract?

Just to get rid of Deng who is unhappy in the situation. Plus Chandler could be revitalized in a situation where nothing is expected of him.

If Lakers sign Deng to a new deal and could stretch provision him.

And when Lakers renounce the rights on Randle they could sign 2 max or near max guys.

Mega trade

In an effort to get expiring contracts and unload long term contracts, the Lakers trade Deng, Clarkson and Randle to Utah for Favors, Burks and Joe Johnson. Lakers get rid of two 3 year contracts plus a young guy they won't resign for 2 expiring contracts and a somewhat young guy that has only a 2 year deal. They do this to open things up for next summer to try to sign all those max deals. Utah takes on Deng to get 2 younger guys that can help them out. They'd have to resign Randle to make this a win.

Why would Utah take on

Why would Utah take on players worse than Favors..? They are trying to move Favors to improve now. If they want Randle the best offer they will get is Exum. Favors can go to help someone that needs a big and draw a bigger return. I'm sure there's a team of midgets somewhere that'll have him.

meh

Wasn't too serious about my trade offer, but I actually don't think it's too bad. Favors is a rental with an injury history. Sounds like Utah isn't planning on resigning him either.

Favors and Randle have similar numbers this year. Randle has better career numbers and is 3 years younger with a better injury history. Burks has been picking it up as of late, but Clarkson is better than him in pretty much all categories. They take on Deng, which is the worst of it. Lakers might have to add a pick or something to offset that a bit more.
