Just don't expect anything of much value in return

We don't need value in return

Opening up playing time for NAW and Kira is good enough

How bout this? Just sit Lonzo and hopefully people will forget how bad he's been this season. Then trade him before the trade deadline

I ask this question in another thread, but since this is a Lonzo thread would you do Lonzo for Julis Randle and Kevin Knox from the Knicks. This would free up minutes for our young guards, plus give us another big and a solid swing

In what Universe do you think the Knicks would see that as a trade they'd like to make, apart from being the Knicks?

Listen man, from a Pelicans perspective, sure, why not?

It’s a weird trade to suggest given there isn’t a world in which that happens, and given that you chose a player who is really similar to Zion. But that said, you don’t turn down a deal like that.

Knicks would not do that and salaries not even close. We cannot take on $23 million while sending out $11 million. Maybe you could talk them into Knox and a heavily protected 1st.

Him being gone should be enough value....

I said this as the basic of the trade, but i'm sure you would have to add additionaly pieces. Plus you must remember New York is desperate for a big name player, who can bring some reconition to the team. Ball name along with is father antics would draw alot of attention to the Knicks.

I would do Knox and filler for Lonzo.

It wouldn’t be about Knox. I just want Lonzo gone so any value for him is good for me.

Him gone is a net positive.

I don't think you could even get Knox

So you think the Knicks could view Lavar as a positive? If so that’s an interesting perspective. I mean I guess these are the Knicks we’re talking about, so it’s worth a shot

Lonzo and a 2nd for Aminu is the deal I do. Makes sense for both sides post Fultz injury

I know we all like to hate Lonzo, but he's worth more than that.

If he doesn't work out for the team that trades for him, they at least can do a S&T with him in the offseason.

If i'm trading him to Orlando, i want Fournier back, but it is difficult to make the salaries work. We'd have to give up Lonzo/Melli/Thornwell to make it work. That would leave us with 12 players on the roster, at the tax line so we couldn't add anyone, so we wouldn't do something like that.

If it was the Knicks, i'd want Alec Burks back and then i'd ask for the Dallas 21 1st, then Kevin Knox if they say no to the 1st, then their Charlotte and Detroit 21 2nds if they say no to Knox.
I still don't think the Knicks would be interested in trading for Lonzo though. His cap hold is almost $30M if they want to resign him, so he really puts a damper in their FA plans if they were to keep him.

Knowing this, you have to look at teams that don't expect to be big players in FA next year, b/c of Lonzo's cap hold.
Also, We are way to close to the tax, so we want to take back less salary in any trade.
Those two things are the main factors when looking at a good trade partner.

Charlotte is an obvious favorite b/c of those two things.
Other teams that fit that bill are the Hawks, Pistons (DRose getting rerouted to 3rd team) and the Kings. There's a few teams that can absorb a little salary, like the Mavs, Spurs, Rockets, Nuggets, but there really isn't logical trades to be had with them, except maybe the Rockets with Tucker/House.

What we should be doing is figuring out a way to get Harrison Barnes here, or Buddy Hield. Barnes is the perfect 3/4 that we need, adn would be a great compliment to BI.


My favorite trade is
Lonzo and Bagley to Hornets
Bledsoe, PJ Washington, Malik Monk to Kings, as well as Charlotte 21 1st and Lakers 22 1st.
Devonte Graham and Harrison Barnes to Pelicans.
Not sure if the Kings would want more than that since they are sending out Bagley, but it seems like they are interested in trading him, but i doubt they'd want Bledsoe.

I hated when Aminu was here. One of most frustrating players we have ever had. I know we need a 3/4. But I don't want him here again.

What would it take to get Miles Bridges? Ball plus what?

You can't do a Sign and Trade if he signs an offer sheet with another club

Which is pretty fricking likely if he makes it past the trade deadline

The club should be planning to give the money that Lonzo wants, to NAW
