In the wake of Kevin Durant’s trade proposal, the Lakers and Nets are heavily discussing a trade for Kyrie Irving centered around Russell Westbrook.
Per Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, the Lakers want Brooklyn to include Seth Curry in the package, while the Nets want to send Joe Harris to Los Angeles.
According to another report, the Lakers have two backup options in the scenario they don’t land Irving.
The first option is Buddy Heild, who would provide immediate shooting for the Lakers, which they desperately need.
The second reported option is Eric Gordon, who might finally moved from the Houston Rockets this offseason.
The Lakers certainly need to make significant adjustments to their roster coming off a disappointing 2021-22 season. They finished 11th in the Western Conference with a 33-49 record. It was the second time the team failed to make the playoffs since LeBron came to town.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
