3-Team Lakers Trade Proposal Causes A Stir

3-Team Lakers Trade Proposal Causes A Stir

The Los Angeles Lakers are under .500 for the latest time this season following back-to-back humiliating defeats at the hands of the Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks.

In recent days, L.A. has been linked to a massive trade with the Utah Jazz, a potential swap with the Atlanta Hawks and a blockbuster 4-team trade.

The common denominator in every proposal that the Lakers have been connected to is that, in some way, it theoretically brings the team closer to competing for a title.

This week, Los Angeles was included a 3-team trade proposal that could change the squad’s entire season.

As noted by Fadeaway World, a scenario exists where the Lakers, Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets complete a win-win-win type of deal. In it, L.A. would get Bruce Brown and Dorian Finney-Smith; Toronto receives Rui Hachimura and Jalen Hood-Schifino; and Brooklyn walks away with Gabe Vincent, Jaxson Hayes and the Lakers’ 2029 first-round pick.

This would be a clear positive move for all parties involved. But whether it ultimately gets made or not remains to be seen.

Either way, though – the Lakers need to do something. LeBron James’ comments following their most recent loss to the Hawks were telling.

“We could, on any given night, beat any team in the NBA,” he said.

“And then on any given night we could get out a** kicked by any team in the NBA.”

L.A. is down bad at the moment and needs to make a big change.

The can fire Darvin Ham. They can add new players. They could do both.

But either way, Rob Pelinka and Co. need to do something.

Will the Lakers make a big move ahead of the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline? Time will tell.
