Trade deadline is fast approaching and teams in the lottery will start buying out the vets on the team.. here is a list of players who might come here this year in a buy out and help us especially in the playoffs when the 3pt shot is crucial:

Trevor Ariza
J.R. Smith
Wesley Matthews
DeMarre Carroll
Jodie Meeks
Nick Young
Matt Thomas

If you have other possible buy out candidates or trade possibilities list the names if you want.


Odd list. Nick Young has been a free agent the whole season and has been trying to attract the Lakers attention for months while they ignore him.

Wesley Matthews is it career 22% three-point shooter.

Matt Thomas, I believe, is playing overseas.

JR Smith is pretty much toast.

Not sure anyone on this list is a significant Improvement to what we already have on our roster.

Ariza, is probably the best, though he isn't exactly a knockdown 3-point shooter himself. I think his career average is about 35% if he gets a buyout by guess is he goes to hous or gw


Agreed the list is odd, but there is no way Wes Matthews is a career 22% 3pt shooter. He’s been a 3pt shooter since entering the league.


That was my bad. I was thinking of the other Wes Matthews, who played in the league a couple of decades ago (including for the Lakers)

Pretty sure Yinoma still wants Ariza hopefully it happens cause he’s the guy who is most familiar with the Organization.


LOL,

Every player who was here when Ariza was here is GONE.

Every upper management person who was running the Lakers when Ariza was here is GONE.

Every Laker Coach who was here when Ariza was here is GONE.

Every Laker Girl who was here when Ariza was here is GONE.

So just who in the "Organization" is he familiar with?

The security guy at the Staples entrance? Maybe a few peanut vendors, or the dude that brings fresh towels in the locker room?

Not sure how him being "familiar" counts for anything...


What I mean is that his transition to the team will be smooth cause he played here regardless rather everything is changed now.


Ariza has played for 7 teams in 15 years. I doubt coming here would be easier or harder for him than going anywhere else. Transition is his middle name.

"Want" isn't really in play with respect to adding a sharpshooter, for me anyway; it's about who's available, given Laker trade assets. I don't see the point of trading Ingram or Kuzma or Ball or Hart mid-season; the rest of the roster was built (make that supposedly filled-in) using vets who can't shoot to stabilize action and to enable the main young guns to take their best shot off of LeBron's passing.

Now, KCP is about the only guy whose contract may be trade-able for a sharpshooter, who's not a producer, not part of the Laker future, and whose absence won't alter significantly the Laker direction this season.

All that said, the Lakers aren't going to the WCF anyway, with an added sharpshooter or otherwise. I say just keep going the current direction, no high risk trade.

Far from battle ready. I’m hoping Svi find his stroke before ASB though

He shows it in G-League but hasn't translated to NBA games yet.
