There were rumors or at least suggestions earlier in the season that the Lakers may or should go after him. It would make sense if he has the ability to be that second star you need next to Lebron to win the championship, and if we don't have to give up all our young players to get him.

He's averaging 25 points a game, 5 rebounds and 5 assists a game this season. Plus he's only 25 years old.

I haven't seen much of him since the Wizards aren't on national TV much, but is he a good enough defensive player?

If he fits the bill, I'd consider trading a package centered around Ingram and KCP.

The Wizards are going nowhere fast in the east, and there were supposed to be a playoff team.

Could a core of Lebron, Beal and Kuzma (and Ball) win a championship with the right supporting cast?

That ship has sailed and I don't think they're going to blow their chance at KD, however small it seems.

It seems the Wiz are building around Beal, not trying to get rid of him.

It would put the Lakers on the path toward competing for a championship.
Beal, sf(Brown or Robinson), pg(C. Randle or McRae), c(Bryant)
for
KCP Ingram Zubac Lance 1st

Prefer Brown and C. Randle but may have to settle for Robinson and or McRae depending on how salaries match up.

Don’t think Wiz building around Beal. Wasn’t it reported that they were planning to blow up the team and everyone was available? And that Beal would likely be moved because his contract wasn’t horrible like Wall’s was?

Javale Bryant Chandler
LeBron Beasley Wagner
Kuzma Brown Bonga
Beal Hart Sivi
Ball Rondo C. Randle

Probably have to have Ball or Bryant develop significantly to compete for a title Unless we could add Cousins somehow.

I'd say Tobias Harris is more or less on same tier as Beal and he can be had straight up without trading for

Problem with getting Harris is that he's a forward, and it would create a huge logjam with him, Ingram, Kuz and Lebron vying for playing time.

Does Ingram has the quickness to play the 2 full time?

If we make a major signing at forward, you'd have to think that Ingram will be dealt.
