NBA Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers are always known for having big dreams in the trade market. The Lakers are targeting 3 and D wing players this season. The rumors of Russell Westbrook getting traded for Myles Turner and Buddy Hield are no longer possible.
3 Players Lakers are interested in trading
Bogdanovic signed a two year $39 million extension with the Pistons. He has been playing the best basketball of his whole career this season. Bogdanovic is averaging 21 points per game shooting at 58% from the field and 43.7% from the 3 point range.
His game has drawn attention towards teams that are potential playoff contenders. Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks are the teams interested in Bogdanovic. Lakers have shown much interest in getting Bojan as he is an efficient 3 point shooter player who plays defence.
Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have been in discussions regarding the trade of France national team Player Evan Fournier. Fournier is averaging 6.7 points per game this season coming off the bench.
Lakers need 3 point shooters and Fournier could be the best fit. According to recent reports from Shams Charania of The Athletic the Lakers get Fournier and the knicks get Patrick Beverly & Kendrick Nunn in return. Beverly and Nunn are going to be unrestricted free agents after this season.
The Lakers getting Fournier is tough as the Knicks owe him 18.9$ for the 2023-24 season. The Knicks would probably wait for Fournier’s contract to expire which can bring a lot of lucrative deals to the Knicks.
The Knicks have tried to put Cam Reddish and Fournier in one package. The Lakers reached out to the Knicks on several occasions regarding the availability of Can Reddish. However the Lakers getting Cam Reddish alone is totally unlikely as the Knicks would like to include Fournier in the package. Reddish is a 3 point shooter and perfect wing defender.
Reddish has been recently moved to the bench by the Knicks. He started the season and was constantly parting of the starting lineup. The Knicks now replaced him with Quentin Grimes. He has been averaging 8 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist in the 20 games he played.
