Lakers trade Green/Kuzma/1st round pick for Kelly Oubre. Lakers get a athletic 3 and D wing who can help give LeBron some rest and also play with him if need be. Lakers really lack a true wing besides LeBron so this trade actually opens up the overall depth on the roster. Also gives KCP and Caruso more minutes at sg with Danny Green gone. Suns obviously do it to get another 1st round draft pick and they get Kuzma who is in a contract year so he has a lot of motivation to play well next season. Danny Green is just a salary fillers with his expiring contract but he can also be a solid backup for Booker at sg. Who says no?
Lakers lol. Lakers arent trading just Green + Kuzma for Oubre. Nevermind adding another 1st round pick.
What are you on? Oubre just averaged 19ppg on pretty good efficiency and defense. He’s also only 24. Suns would be morons to trade him for 2 shitty players and a useless late first
Youre dense. Oubre averaged 19 ppg on a non contender, you have no idea how his game would translate on a team with actual championship aspirations. To put it in perspective for you, Kuzma who you called a "shitty player" averaged 19 ppg on 55% TS last
Youre underrating Oubre imo
No. I like Oubre. But he is kinda a blackhole in the offense. He isnt THAT better than Kuzma offensively. Check out Kuzmas stats from last season and his rookie season. Green is a good role player on a contender. Very good defense and a solid 3-point sh
Lol what theyd definitely trade Green + Kuzma for Oubre
I wouldn’t do it for pretty obvious reasons. Not trying to over pay for Kyle Kuzma when I can just pay for Kelly Oubre who is the same age and better. The 30th pick (or whatever it is) moves the needle 0%. Might as well be the 47th pick in this draft.
Lakers fans gonna wonder why Green still on the team at the end of the trade deadline lol
Paging Pelinka rn
Misread that as Kelly Olynyk. Thought this was a shitpost.
nah they should go get gallo. it’ll be fun to watch lakers fans turn on him when he’s awful in the playoffs after a good regular season
Not terrible but the Suns are probably looking to make win now moves instead of picking up picks/young players and bad contracts And Lakers shouldnt just dump their limited assets for 1 year rentals
Green and Kuzma is still win now kind of. Kuzma could go off as the starting 4 for them.
Danny Green is not a bad contract lmao
Suns say hell no
Green/Kuzma/Lakers Pick for Shump/TT/Nets Pick
