The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching and you for certain that Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka is making phone call after phone call to try and fix the situation that he has in Los Angeles.
The Lakers were supposed to be the best team in the Western Conference and the favorites to win the title from the West and instead, they are a .500 basketball team that looks more likely to play in the play-in tournament.
Sure, things change in the playoffs and sometimes we can throw regular-season records out but this regular-season record is a direct result of a roster that has been underwhelming. The Lakers are 5-11 against teams with a .500 record and above, are we really supposed to expect them to make a deep run?
That is not going to stop the Los Angeles Lakers from trying to make trades
While the season has been a disaster thus far, there is still hope inside the building because they have LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The team really has no choice but to just go for it and hope that they can improve the team enough to make some sort of run. There is no alternative.
There have been quite a few Lakers that have been mentioned in the Lakers rumors as potential trade pieces and there is a myriad of directions the team can go. Today, we are going to rank all of the players that could be traded by LA this season in order of how likely it is to happen.
