Lakers discuss Lillard-Tray Young trade internally…but why it won’t be easy?

The Lakers have discussed signing a superstar, but it’s not likely.

Jovan Buha, a reporter covering the Los Angeles Lakers for The Athletic, reported on the Lakers’ offseason signing plans on Sunday (Nov. 17).

The Lakers defied expectations this season and advanced to the Conference Finals. In order to continue the good momentum, it is important to spend the transfer market well and build a good roster.

Aside from Anthony Davis and LeBron James, the Lakers have a number of key resources set to become free agents this summer. One of the most talked about is the point guard corps, with D’Angelo Russell and Dennis Schroder set to hit the open market.

With Kyrie Irving, who was repeatedly linked to the Lakers, leaning toward staying in Dallas, the Lakers may have considered adding another big name. “The Lakers have discussed trading Damian Lillard and Trae Young internally,” the report said.

However, it’s hard to imagine the Lakers realistically acquiring either player. The Lakers are unlikely to offer a top prospect or a package of draft picks that would be enticing. Even if they were to be aggressive, it’s unlikely the Lakers would be able to hold onto Lillard and Young given their trade value.

Even if they did make a big splash and acquire Lillard or Young, it would likely leave the team with thin depth and an unbalanced roster. The Lakers have already tried to build a big three with Russell Westbrook alongside LeBron and Davis, and it failed miserably.먹튀검증

“Considering the value of Lillard and Young in the current trade market, it would be a pipe dream for the Lakers to keep them,” Buh added.

Buh’s vision for the Lakers’ best point guard is to re-sign Russell, who finished the season with them, and add Chris Paul. If Paul, who has been rumored to be on the verge of being released by Phoenix, becomes a free agent, the Lakers are expected to make an aggressive pursuit.
