Lakers Rumors: Teams Asked For Likes Of Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart And First-Round Draft Picks In Potential Luol Deng Trade
Luol Deng, Los Angeles Lakers
Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

In their quest to clear out as much salary cap space as possible, the Los Angeles Lakers made multiple moves to get rid of undesirable contracts. It cost the team D’Angelo Russell and Larry Nance Jr. to move Timofey Mozgov and Jordan Clarkson, respectively, but the one contract that remains is that of Luol Deng.

Deng still has two years on his $72 million remaining on a contract that was signed in 2016. He played in just one game last season as the two sides worked to find a solution, but one never materialized.

Some wondered if the Lakers would be able to move Deng this offseason, but as the NBA Draft and free agency have essentially both passed, the veteran forward remains on the roster. One reason for that is likely what teams are asking for to take on Deng’s contract.

On the Lakers Nation podcast, Keith Smith of Real GM spoke about what he heard from teams about their asking price, and it was steep:

“I asked them, ‘Well what were you asking for?’ and they said, ‘Well we wanted one of Ingram, Ball, Hart, at a minimum Kuzma, and we wanted another first-round pick, or give us two kids and no pick, or two first-round picks.’ But the two first-round picks, that was a little less desirable for those teams because those are going to be late-20s picks, just any team with LeBron that’s where you’re gonna be. So it really turned into, you’re giving up at least one of the kids plus a first-round pick or two of the kids and that was just to get off Deng’s money.”

When looking at that, it makes sense as to why Deng hasn’t been traded this summer. For as much as the Lakers would like to move him, losing two of their young pieces is far too big of a price to pay.

And the front office would likely prefer to keep their draft picks now that they have finally moved past the ill-fated Steve Nash and Dwight Howard trades.

For the time being Deng will likely stick with the team, but his contract will soon become more tradable. Perhaps as soon as this season’s trade deadline, and certainly next summer when Deng’s deal becomes an expiring contract, the Lakers could finally be able to make that move.

As it stands, there’s a belief within the Lakers that he is essentially retired.
