Lakers Rumors: Wizards Would Want Lonzo Ball Involved In Bradley Beal Trade

Showing interest in Beal is EXACTLY what the Lakers need to be doing. It's genius and restores my faith in Rob Pelinka. Not because we want to actually acquire Beal but to put the Pelicans in their place. Remember, AD has been and will continue to be the Lakers plan A, B, and C. No one can offer the Pelicans a more attractive trade package than the Lakers can. We have too many valuable trade assets. The #4 pick is icing on the cake. The Pelicans know this and they also know they can rob us blind and demand anything they want from us if we try to resume talks with them. Our only counter is, "sorry, the offer that was made last season was for last season AND it was offered by the President of Basketball Operations who 1.) has since stepped down and 2.) offered more than Owner was aware of. I wouldn't be surprised if trade talks between the Lakers and Wizards suddenly got "very intense" in the coming weeks before the draft simply as an attempt to show the Pelicans if they want in on the Lakers young core + #4 pick (which I suspect David Griffin does), they better change their tune on Anthony Davis before the draft and resume negotiations. The ideal Goal is for the Lakers to Sign a free agent FIRST and then trade for Davis to make the cap numbers work. But if they can get a strong sense that Kwahi or Irving is willing to come to LA then AD can kick rocks and we can keep our assets. Pelicans can get maximum value for AD NOW or miss out and settle for Boston's weak offer.
