      @willl 88 AD is flat stupid, and a traitor, or lets say a pre-madonna, non-team player

    Zion is wasting his time if the's gonna move to the lakers cause the whole idea is for him to gain experience and he won't get taht if he's goin go where Lebron is cause Lebron is always swallowing people up and everyone has to play around him rather than their full potential.

      Pelicans should trade AD to Boston for Rozier, Tatum and Brown. Make Zion with those three guys your core

        AD should man up like Greek Freak. They could put something together in two or three years.

        But he already put himself out there, so the Pelicans should dupe NY, trade AD, get RJ Barret and steal the big man Mitchell from NY

          In 1998 a 32 year old got a rookie in Tim Duncan. AD at 26-27 would have still be in his prime when Zion is. Plus Zion on his rookie contract could get another star too. LeBron made plenty of revenue off the court in Cleveland. Big markets aren’t going to help someone who’s not very marketable. NO can be a dominant contender for 5 plus years. AD should stay

            RJ Barrett will be bust. I seen him get his shot block all kinds of times NIV college players are blocking his shots NBA players going to be able to do it easy

                Zion shoots better then Ben Simmons.

                  These guys gave Lonzo ball more credit than they give Zion. Only nobody's put up numbers like Zion since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

                    A player's prime is between 28 and 32 not 26. Jordan didn't win his championship until he was 28 his prime was between 28 and 32 Larry Bird magic Johnson his prime Kobe Bryant LeBron James it's 28 to 32

                      These are the same guy that said Grant Hill was the second coming and Harold Miner was baby Jordan

                        You didn't know where LeBron was going to be either you didn't know what Michael Jordan was going to be. Come on man

                          i could be wrong but did this dude just say that the lakers young players are better than the celtics young players?

                            if AD wants to compete for a ring RIGHT NOW , he would go to Philly or Boston NOT THE LAKERS

                                Send him to Boston for Tatum, Damarts and their 1st round pick. Recruit a free agent not named Kyrie but like Butler or Danny Green.

                                  Get rid of him. When was the last time AD didn't get injured at least twice in a season? The guy is fragile...

                                      sometimes it seems like there's only 4 teams in the NBA...and all the small markets teams are in the ABA.

                                          This is stupid to consider a trade with the Lakers. If youth is the project, then the Celtics have better packages to deal.

                                            Keeping AD would allow them to put Zion at the 4. Nobody would be able to keep up with him

                                                Rich Paul wants omissions on big market sales. he wants a max deal, max years, and max hype. thats all this is about.

                                                  NO can also rack up picks like Hershal walker did ?? What team has 3 lanes and a draft pick to make NO competitive -LA - Boston - Knicks - Miami - ?????

                                                    AD is in charge and can get full compliment of money no matter where he goes ?? he can hold any team hostage like magic Johnson did to LA ???

                                                      Malcolm Brogdon instead of Mike Conley.

                                                        I would be surprised if the Lakers Get Anthony Davis. Just don't think so.

                                                          same as 2014 Wiggins and Jabari were supposed to awesome, where are they now??? not even allstars

                                                            AD should be traded for 6 first rounders, 2 blue chip guys and 1 solid veteran

I LOVE Mike Conley but you need youth that can grow together with the maturity of Holiday. Strengthening the bench with Fareed and some value veterans that you can get some work ethic guys for the locker room.

                                                                                      Stay with me here, because this gets complex real fast.

                                                                                      Lakers should trade Lonzo to Chicago for the #7 pick and Kris Dunn. Chicago gets a pass first PG to feed Markennen, LaVine and Wendell Carter Jr, Lakers get a backup PG and a trade piece.

                                                                                      Lakers trade their own #4 pick, the acquired #7 pick from Chicago, two of Kuz, BI and Josh Hart, and another first rounder (2021 maybe?), for AD and Solomon Hill's contract.

                                                                                      Lakers sign a max player and a mid-range player, say Kemba as a max and Brook Lopez as a mid-range player, so they trot out a starting 5 of LeBron, Kemba, whichever guy didn't get traded to the Pelicans, AD and Brook Lopez.

                                                                                      Pelicans use the #4 and #7 picks to trade up to #2 with Memphis. Memphis still have a couple years of Mike Conley, so why not keep him for the time being? Pelicans draft Zion #1, Ja Morant #2, start next year with Ja, 2 of the Lakers kids, Zion and sign one of the various Centres going around - Vucevic, Cousins, Marc Gasol or something like that.

                                                                                      Memphis uses the #4 and #7 picks on DeAndre Hunter and Jarrett Culver, get themselves some young wings to go along with Mike Conley and Jaren Jackson.

                                                                                        • Brainiac 5

                                                                                          They have nothing to offer that will seem attractive enough for the Pelicans to deal Zion.
