Last night, according to a report by Marc Stein, the Lakers believed that the price of using Beverly + Nunn + an unprotected first-round pick to get Bo Yang was too high.
He wrote in the article: "When the Lakers wanted to use two first rounds as a basis for Turner and Hield during the offseason, they thought it was too expensive. They wanted to use a first round as a basis (plus the arrival of Beverly and Nunn)
Long-term contract) for Bojan, it was too expensive. We have reason to believe that this is the best time for the Lakers to get Bojan, even if the Pistons refuse to cut the price."
Subsequently, the US media NBACentral reposted the remarks, which aroused heated discussions. Let’s take a look at how fans commented!
It doesn’t make them a title contender so I agree
That doesn’t make them championship contenders, so I agree.
It is. He’s 34. Not worth a unprotected pick.
Maybe or maybe not. But for me, I’d rather give up a 1st to get kuz back or just do the charlotte or indy deal if they’ll send both 1sts.
Maybe the price is high, maybe not.
But for me, I’d rather give up a first-round pick in exchange for Kurz, or go straight to Charlotte or Indiana, if they are willing to send two first-round picks.
If that’s an overpay what is trading kuzma/kcp and a 1st for russell westbrook?
If that’s an exorbitant price, what about Kuzma/Pope and a first-round pick for Westbrook?
Did y’all forget last time the lakers tried this? Cuz I didn’t. I’m glad they ain’t doing this deal. Let’s not forget about Jason Kapono being a non factor after shooting lights out.
Y’all forget the last time the Lakers did this?
I haven’t forgotten, and I’m glad they didn’t make the deal.
And let’s not forget that sharpshooter Jason Kapono became an irrelevant factor for the team.
Add Saddiq Bey on Detroit’s side and I think it’s a good deal. Lakers receive Bogdonovic and Bey Detroit Received: Unprotected 1st round pick Beverly and Nunn
Detroit plus Sadiq Bay, I think it’s a good deal.
The Lakers got Bogdonovich and Bay, and what Detroit got was an unprotected first-round pick + Beverly and Nunn.
Anyone saying this is too much for the Lakers to give up sounds silly. Bogdanovic is a 21ppg scorer who shoots 41.6% on threes and is locked up until 2025. He’s exactly what this team needs to be competitive with an aging Lebron/AD. Stop
overrating 1st rd picks.
Any suggestion that the Lakers waived Bojan sounds silly.
Bogdanovic is a 21-point-per-game scorer on 41.6 percent of his 3-pointers and can continue through 2025.
He’s exactly what this team needs in order to be competitive with an aging LeBron/brow, stop overestimating first-round picks.
It’s only too high because it’s not going to actually move the needle for them by itself. If the Lakers have multiple moves in mind and this is one of them then it’s just right. But I think a
