Los Angeles Lakers NBA Free agents list! Realism in Free Agency!

We want D’Angelo Russell back! Los Angeles Lakers fans right now.The players the Lakers can actually get in NBA free agency! D’Angelo Russell DeMarcus Cousins Jimmy Butler Klay Thompson Tobias Harris Going after Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and Kemba Walker could cost the Lakers fairly good free agents. DeMarcus Cousins and De’Angelo Russell should be taken of the market quickly. Players the Lakers could realistically get in an NBA trade! Bradley Beal and Zach Lavine with Lonzo Ball as a part of the package. He probably fits the Bulls timeline better. Victor Oladipo Gordon Hayward, but why would you want to! Andrew Wiggins, probably do not want him either. All scenarios above will lead to them keeping Kyle Kuzma and their top rookie pick this year. They do not get Anthony Davis, but if you are the best player in the world that is good enough for a conference final and after that who knows.

Devin Booker The Los Angeles Lakers trade answer

Los Angeles Lakers best trade that the other team should take seriously. Devin Booker with Lebron James represents the best possible move for the Lakers. The Pheonix Suns would get Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and more. On the face of it, this could be a pricy trade for both Laker fans and Pheonix fans to swollow, but it would be stellar for both teams. The Pheonix Suns have their centre they have a great chance of aquiring RJ Barrett or Zion Williams they could manoeuvre to acquire both. Brandon Ingram and Zo give them a backcourt, if they are able to add Zion Williamson or RJ Barret, their future is a great deal brighter than have Devin Booker alone. Now if the Los Angeles Lakers have Devin Booker, Kyle Kuzma, Lebron James, they should only need 1 free agent signing. Your team is… Nice Now and Nice in the future. Free Agent prospects, the Lakers can actually get! One or two from the list below and it should be enough. If you have the best player in the world! If it is not, the Lakers fans must accept Lebron James is not the best player in the world and they…

Blake Griffin goes digital arguing with an NBA referee
Eastern Conference / December 29, 2018

Blake Griffin while playing for the Detroit Pistons against the Indiana Pacers got petty about a call. He got hold of Tablet, during a break, to show the referee that he thought he was wrong on a call. It does not appear the referee agreed with him. The Indiana Pacers smashed Blake in return and the final score was 125 to 88.

Top 5 NBA teams with Salary cap room for NBA free agents.

This coming NBA free agency threatens to be as exciting as the year of the Lebron James Decision. Tipoff top five teams and their chances of making big NBA free agent signings! ! Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Clippers Sacramento Kings New York Knicks Dallas Mavericks The teams in order of salaries committed for the season 2019/2020 are as follows. Brooklyn $40,332,631 Sacramento $46,373,959 LA Clippers $47,347,510 Atlanta $48,655,968 Dallas $51,769,283 Chicago $53,811,026 New York $57,344,983 Indiana $58,580,379 LA Lakers $67,230,167 Philadelphia $71,709,606 The NO1 team on salary, coach, talent and owner are the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic has led this team into playoff contention and Deandre Jordan still is a force in the Middle. Dallas has the ability to sign anybody. They are in a position to sign 3 max level players without offering max level contracts; Texas is a tax-friendly state as well. Half of the games played by the Dallas Mavericks will not have state income tax. While that is only a potential boost of around 7 percent. That is potentially 2 million+ per max contract that players might give back to the team. The number 2 team is the Sacramento Kings. They have the money and the team. The important players DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield are under contract, except for their defensive anchor Willie Cauley-Stein. Willie only needs a qualifying offer of $6,265,631. The Kings are in a fabulous…

Let’s redraft the top 5 of the 2019 NBA Draft.

The order of the players picked would lead to a different balance in the league. Would Luka be our number one? 5) Trae Young 4) Kevin Knox 3) DeAndre Ayton 2) Luka Doncic 1) Jaren Jackson Jr 5) Trae Young He was compared to Stephen Curry during his last year at NCAA Division 1 level, but he is really like Steve Nash. He just had no weapons of any use at that level. Now he is in the NBA where the standard is higher his upside is being sprinkled all over the league and the NBA draft would be different. It was close between Trae and Marvin Bagley who has shown great potential. The coach does not have the necessary faith in Marvin which could cost his development. Although Trae is now my 5th best player on the NBA draft board, Dallas would not have been comfortable playing Dennis Smith Jr and Trae Young together. It is the same pick they took, but now they would have to trade for Kevin Knox or Jaren Jackson Jr which the Phoenix Suns would probably do. Trae Young and a draft pick should still expect to be a great trade. I project him…

Top possible NBA trades we care about.
NBA Draft News , Western Conference / December 23, 2018

The trade deadline for NBA season 2018-2019 is fast approaching. The potential NBA trades are more interesting than we all realise. Anthony Davis Kyrie Irving Markelle Fultz Jabari Parker Trevor Ariza D’Angelo Russell Heavily Pursued by the Los Angeles Lakers, if they fail to get him do not be surprised if Lakers lose their team chemistry because of it. Kyrie Irving is a max contract player but is he a max contract player for the Boston Celtics. We care about it, but unless he is involved with a superstar, I will be surprised if they move him. Kyrie Irving is a playoff player! Markelle Fultz showed promise at the end of his rookie year. If he sorts out his shot, he will be devastating. Fix a shot really is not that hard at all. It does not take anyway near as many repetitions coaches lead you to believe. These are the best athletes in the world. Jabari has a big contract, but only 1 year left on it. There are overpriced players in the league, that can be acquired for bench assets and draft picks. Parker can be used to get another draft asset and a good locker room guy….

Is Derrick Rose the NBA’s most improved player? He is Top 10
NBA News / December 7, 2018

Derrick has definitely improved a lot this off season! He is a quick rather than fast. The injuries have subsided and he has become a lot more efficient.   The NBA Top 10 most improved players according to Basketball Tipoff is. Zach Lavine 36 DeAaron Fox 32 Derrick Rose 22 Pascal Siakam 16 Nikola Mirotic 16 Josh Richardson 11 JaVale McGee 10 Caris Lavert 9 Buddy Hield 9 Montrezl Harrell 9 The List is compiled from the Tipoff selectives Top 5 choices. Zach Lavine has improved his scoring and is scoring for the Chicago Bulls at an incredibly efficient rate.  DeAaron Fox has stated that the game has slowed down for him, so every aspect of his game has improved. Derrick Rose does not get injured as often. Pascal Siakam is a difference maker at 24 years old, he is taking the opportunity in front of him.  Nikola Mirotic rounds out the top fin on this list. A lot of his opportunity is due to necessity and finally being given an opportunity to shine. 

Kevin Durant could be signed by the San Antonio Spurs

Kevin Durant could end up at the San Antonio Spurs.   No mainstream media analysts, aside from Skip Bayless, might think this is possible. At Tipoff predicting trades is our thing, we have a knack for it. At the moment, the likelihood depends on Kevin Durant’s desire to go down in history.   The Spurs have an opportunity to acquire another max level player. They might have to move a player and talk Pau Gasol into renegotiating his contract, but if he wants to go to the finals again, he will have to help and extend his contract. Pau Gasol with a backloaded contract of around 25 million over 3 years is a fair deal.   At the moment the Spurs salary bill will be 110 million dollars. A lot of money but league revenue is still trending up and Pau Gasol’s contract is 16million. The Spurs have talked stars into taking minimum and lower level contracts only to reward them in later years. Manu Ginobili, cut deals like that with the Spurs a couple times. So they have a reputation for doing it. If Pau takes a 3-year contract as a player who is really a lot less useful…

Is Derrick Rose an NBA All Star?
National Basketball Association / November 19, 2018

Derrick Rose is an NBA All-Star again. Now he needs to take the Minnesota Timberwolves and elevate them back into a playoff contender.   Derrick Rose is playing with a quick mind as well as quick feet. In his early career, he was seen as the most athletic point guard in the league. The joke was often made that he made things look harder than they actually are. A walking busted knee about to happen.   Boy did he bust himself up.   Now Derrick Rose is the difference maker most teams would be glad to have.   47% three point shooter. 46% from the field 19 points   Derrick Rose is showing the career comeback of NBA history. This resurgence needs more longevity and an ending, a playoff ending. Now that would be special.   Can the former franchise player Derrick Rose maintain consistency?   The league has known all about Derrick and scouting reports are not able to stop this veteran anymore. His game has reached a maturity the rest of the League cannot find the rhythm of.   When Derrick comes to town, your town is in trouble!

NBA’s Top Ten duos
National Basketball Association / November 15, 2018

  Honourable mention to DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge a new pair, finding their way that can not be assessed until it has been playoff tested. The NBA League has some great duos, but duos like John Wall and Bradley of the Washington Wizards barely make this list. Their reputation counts for something. NBA players DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield   The most impressive members on this list are DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield. At the time of writing this article, DeAaron Fox was going for 18.7pts 7.1ast 4.4rebs. Commentators have been critical of the Sacramento Kings, but they won the trade with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans got DeMarcus Cousins and then let him go for nothing. The Kings got Buddy Hield who now produces 18.7pts and gels well with the team. They have not been playoff tested, but they have grown together and could be as good as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. NBA players Russell Westbrook and Paul George Russell Westbrook and Paul George have a chance of being one of the best modern-day duos. Paul George is a former alpha that headed a team and Westbrook trusts him during clutch moments. At their best, this duo has the best…
