The Los Angeles Lakers are looking to improve in any way this season after the disappointing start to the year. With some momentum currently behind them, it makes a lot of sense for the front office to pursue any possible upgrades that could carry this momentum throughout the season.
One potential upgrade is in Kendrick Nunn, who is yet to make his Lakers debut this season. The Lakers signed Nunn to a Taxpayer’s Mid-Level Exception in the offseason and he was viewed as one of the best value signings in the league.
While Nunn’s return would seemingly be promising, the Lakers might be able to improve more if they trade him for another asset. With Malik Monk’s emergence and strong play from both Talen Horton-Tucker and Austin Reaves, you could make the case that the Lakers don’t need Nunn in this rotation.
If the Los Angeles Lakers believe that then they should absolutely trade Kendrick Nunn.
Like we did with the Talen Horton-Tucker article earlier this season, our friends over at Lakers Legacy (the official Los Angeles Lakers podcast of the FanSided network) put together several potential trade packages for Nunn and discussed it.
We are going to break down those potential trade packages in this article and give our take. Would the Lakers do it? Would the other team do it? How would the Lakers look after the trade? You get the point.
Let’s dive into the six potential trade packages for Kendrick Nunn.
