Well with the recent news about Mitch Kupchak stating that he was 'looking into' making some moves; and Magic's agreement; as well as Ron's bizarre scenario; we seem to have had an influx of random fanposts and discussions popping up about trads all over the place. Whether or not I, or anybody else, actually thinks Kupchak was serious with his statements, or Stein was accurate with his report about Ron; isn't going to stop trade discussions from popping up, particularly with the Lakers' play of late; so I figured it would be better to limit all the trade discussion to one post instead of it being all over the place, hence this thread.
Couple of rules:
- Do your homework: Make sure the trade you're proposing is legit under the Cap. ESPN's NBA Trade Machine works well for testing this
- Be realistic: Joking is fine, but if you seriously think we can pick up Blake Griffin for Luke Walton, put the bong down.
- Don't flame: There will undoubtedly be stupid suggestions, and obviously it's fine to disagree - just keep it civil and do NOT engage in personal attacks.
- Don't take it seriously: Let me clear something up for you: I'm making this thread to keep the fanposts section from getting clogged with individual posts, it's not like I've been contacted by Mitch Kupchak asking to make a suggestion thread for him to peruse. The Lakers don't give a shit about my, yours, or anybody else here's suggestions. They in all likelihood will never hear of it.
With the creation of this thread, all other new trade suggestion Fanposts will be deleted (existing ones will be allowed to stay), and the poster instructed to bring his suggestion here. Obviously, this only applies for hypotheticals; and if a legit rumour surfaces from a credible source, that's separate news in and of itself.
Please rec this so it stays up the top of the fanpost section; and have fun.
