A two-time All-Star who just signed a massive contract extension this summer reportedly is hoping for a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers sooner than later.
After a terrible start to the season, the Lakers are slowly but surely inching their way back into playoff contention as they close in on the midway point of the 2022-2023 season. They are 13-18, 2.5 games out of the last two spots for the NBA play-in tournament, and are a game over .500 over their last 15.
Their improved play over the last month has reportedly given the front office the impetus to seek out some blockbuster moves ahead of the NBA trade deadline. The recent injury to superstar Anthony Davis has only intensified that desire to happen sooner rather than later.
As the Chicago Bulls continue on a path to a surprise losing season, they have been identified as a possible trade partner for the Lakers. While All-Star Zach LaVine may not be an option this season in the eyes of one NBA executive, the groundwork for LaVine to take his talents to L.A. next season has already been laid.
