Besides the obvious fact that the Lakers are trying to trade players who’s named just how happen to rhyme, apparently they are willing to part ways with BBB (Big Baller Brand), and ship him out to Washington. Who in exchange for? Well the man with his own dance move: John Wall. Tantalized yet?
…yeah, me neither.
The news was “leaked” by a twitter account who’s name literally is “Lonzo Wire”. They said tweeted out an article that says two agents have heard that the Lakers have reached out and offered Ball and other assets for John Wall. While I believe that they made the call, I don’t think it will happen. Why? Well, simple: money.
John Wall will eat up all of the Lakers free money this offseason, and adds more than $20 mil over the next 4 years. What I mean by that is that John Wall will make $30 mil/yr over Ball’s $10mil/yr…there goes that future All-Star signing in this enormous FA class this year. Sure you get one with this trade, but you can’t get 2 (which they could) with this trade.
Can’t wait to see how this plays out, because the Lake Show drama is now starting to get juicy.
