Pulled from the Clippers thread...

Steve Yohe wrote:
What did the Lakers get for Lou Williams?---Yohe


Corey Brewer and the Rockets #1 pick, which ended up #1-28.

Brewer was in the deal to make the money math work - the Rockets needed to move a contract to take Williams, and the Lakers were fine with Brewer's short term contract that expires after this season

We traded the Rockets pick to Utha to move down two spots to 1-30 while also picking up the #2-42.

#1-30 = Josh Hart
#2-42 = Thomas Bryant

Williams is a free agent after this year, and we wouldn't resign him.

We ended up getting two interesting prospects.

Hart isn't super young since he went all four years to college. But he's been a pleasant addition who has some potential as a cheap hard working role player. He's on a cheap rookie contract, and then we have some control over him as an RFA after the rookie contract is up.

Bryant is an intriguing modern Big. There is a chance that he's going to pass Zubac by.

The original trade was a good one, and then picking up and extra pick while getting the player they wanted two spots lower (and keeping it in the 1st round) was a smarter move that I would have expected out of Magic & Rob so early in their time in office. Add in that it looks like we had are pretty typical decent job of scouting players down in this part of the draft.

Four in a row. I had forgotten how to count that high.--Yohe

they signed Gary Payton JR. So like father, like son. Since his dad was a Laker, a while ago.
