    Default Lakers 7th pick?

    I think if Embiid is off the board by the Lakers pick that it puts the pick drastically in play. Would a trade of Amir + Vasquez rights + 20th pick be enough? We can toss in a future 2nd or something but that would be the core of the trade. I think Marcus Smart and Julius Randle have that IT factor if available at 7.

    In order to trade Vasquez, it would have to be a sign and trade and that can only take place after July 1 with the draft being next Thursday.

    Im just wondering. Could you make a trade draft day and pick your guy. Than make a verbal agreement to sign and trade on july 1st. Or does it not work that way.

    So not that im board with this but the tade would be

    Johnson #20 and verbal agreement to sign and tade greasy

    For #7

    I don't see the Lakers doing that trade, they're giving up a potential star for 3 role players pretty much.

    No, it will not be enough. You are not even close to what Lakers would expect for their #7 pick. Not even in the closed proximity.

    No negotiations until July 1 and even then signings don't become official for about 10 days.

    Who knows what goes on behind the scenes but it is certain that Vasquez can not be a part of any trade before July 1. He's a restricted free agent. After July 1 he can resign with the Raptors or he can sign an offer sheet with another team and the Raptors have a few days to match the offer.

    No, you can't even talk about it.

    And it puts the teams in an awkward position. Say you have a trade agreed to, with GV signing for 5M. Then July comes around and GV realizes the deal still works under the cap if he gets 8M. So he's got all the leverage. Neither team wants to renege on the deal, but since only TOR could have talked to GV before the trade was agreed to, there's really no agreement with the other team broken by GV.

    I think we can all stop trying to trade up in to the top 10. It generally would cost too much, and our guys aren't valued high enough anyways. Raptors just don't get the same press that other NBA teams get, meaning our players don't get the same trade value they deserve.

    This actually makes it easier for us to keep our own guys though, since their skills are not fully recognized by other teams.

    Possibly only DD or JV could do this kind of trade, or Ross and another couple rotation players and a draft pick.

    Too steep for draft pick that has no guarentees.

    I disagree about the players not getting the trade value they deserve. Coaches aren't casual fans who only conduct their scouting reports based off ESPN highlights, that would make them bad at their job lol

    I think you may be right, and I may have overspoken here. Though it's GM's, not coaches. =)

    Still, for the Lakers 7th pick, I don't think there is a trade to be had that is either mutually beneficial or a good deal for us.

    We're not going to trade up unless we make a deal with Phoenix or Chicago.

    We have Jonas, no need for Embiid. Too bad for his footwork, at the best case scenario, he may become the next Joe Smith, worst case scenario, Greg Oden, so no thanks.

    Agreed.
    U are risking a lot for his services.

    As for the topic, Lakers probably would ask Demar for number #7,no thanks.

    I don't get this. He's finally turning into the player he was thought to become by some, if not exceeding those expectations. Do you really wanna wait 3-4 years for this pick to develop into an all-star again? Unless Exum is still there(if Lowry leaves), I wouldn't think about doing this.

    *Edit: Sorry, we won't know if Lowry is gone at this point so no way.
