Well, At least Russell will be the best player on a team. Just not the team he thought.

For Brook the 27th pick and the rights to get out of Mosgov's contract. Kind of like it for both teams. I am not a Russell fan and he was my favorite player coming into that draft.

I understand that the Lakers are getting rid of Mozgov's contract, but wow. This still seems like very little for DLo.

They got fleeced, unless his teammates still didn't like him bc of Iggy nonsense (which I doubt)

Brook becomes the best Center on the west coast at least, if Lakers were going for that.

Damnit. That nets pick (that the Celtics have) is virtually worthless now, right?

Haha the Lakers are so pathetic. They have to trade Russell just to ditch the Mozgov contract. Thats all this is.

I reserve the right to edit if they sign LeBron and dumping Timmy helps that

Lakers had called multiple teams in lottery about acquiring Russell this week. No takers. He becomes the guy who helps them get off Moz $

LOL well, shows how much value Russell had. Well at least now he'll have nice looking box scores and 20 win seasons for the next 3 years

Which year? Cause Nets will be a top 3 lottery team next year and Celtics still own it.

I mean, I guess if you anticipate DLo leading them to like 50 wins?

Doesn't this make it even more valuable?


I'm curious to hear GeechQuest's opinions of this trade. I'm guessing they're not favorable.

Lakers just freed up a bunch of cap space for next FA period. Nets got a solid young player to build around.

Good move for both teams.

Let the Russell and Nicholson connection begin

Like the move for the Nets. Lopez wasn't helping them any. I'm not sold on Russell as a PG though..

My first instinct says LA takes Lonzo..

Thinking about Geech too.

I don't want to say I was right. I would pull up my predictions about Russell from before this year, but I think there's a bunch of stuff in them about how awesome I thought Trey Lyles was going to be.... so I think I'll just bite my tongue.

Sorry Geech. Not a good moment.

The sad thing.... he was still a better pick than Jahlil.....
