We also have to suck up the Deng deal for 2 more years until 2020 bc nobody wants that horrendous contract. We also had this Clarkson deal, a backup who is not part of the future vision of this team. Thanks a lot, Jim Buss you moron.

Well said. They anticipated the cap going up and it set back the franchise years.

Precisely. Truth be told, we would have been in a much better position right now if we had done nothing in 2016 but sign 1yr contracts or simply done nothing at all, period.

Sometimes in life, doing nothing is better than doing something just for the sake of doing it. Jim Buss did the same exact thing with the Steve Nash trade.. Another costly move that gained us nothing but misery. To this day 6 years later, we are dealing with the repercussions.

Steve Nash to Lakers for:
-2013 first round pick (least favorable of Cavaliers, Heat, Kings (top 13 protected),
-2013 first round pick Lakers (top 14 protected) picks) (#30-Nemanja Nedovic)
-2013 second round pick (protected top 40 in 2013, unprotected in 2014) (#57-Alex Oriakhi)
-2014 second round pick (#36-Johnny O'Bryant III)
-first round pick (protected top 5 in 2015, top 3 in 2016-17, unprotected in 2018) (?-?)
-$3M cash on 2012-07-11

That's 3 first round picks and 2 2nd picks. Jim Buss really shot us back years with the single Steve Nash. Deng, Mozgov and Clarkson deals are extra cherries on top. Jeannie should have stepped in years ago and fired the moron Jim Buss.

Yeah, to be fair though everyone thought the Lakers would be contenders after the Nash trade. That was a move a lot of people would have made at the time. Now we know it was terrible for the team.
