Los Angeles Lakers To Trade Lou Williams, Luol Deng & Nick Young?

The NBA trade deadline is on February 23 so anything can happen in the coming days. He gets it done in crunch time as well, scoring the fifth-most points per fourth quarter in the National Basketball Association. "I play for the team that I have the jersey on for, so I don't really deal in hypotheticals". The Cleveland Cavaliers (38-16), a team that is expected to remain extremely active closer to the deadline, is reportedly interested in the former Sixth Man of the Year.

Kupchak confirmed that the team is actively trying to recruit the best talent available.

With Williams available, the Cavs could just get the ideal backup to Irving. Williams would make Washington's bench much more formidable offensively and he'd take the pressure off the rest of the bench to create their own shots.

Also making Williams an attractive trade target is that he is not a rental.

The deadline has been largely disappointing for the team over the past few seasons, but the LA Time's Tania Ganguli and Mike DiGiovanna report that general manager Mitch Kupchak thinks this year could be different compared to the last couple of years.

Smith is the only player the Wizards can send to the Lakers that makes sense in a one-for-one deal.

Lou Williams addressed the trade chatter during a conversation with Serena Winters of LakersNation.com: "Just go out and hoop, let the powers that be deal with it".

Williams has been an odd fit in a rebuilding team like the Lakers.

The only other option would be to package two of the following three players in a deal: Trey Burke, Tomas Satoransky, and Kelly Oubre.

With Bryant riding off into the sunset into retirement last season, the Lakers are in full rebuild mode. The Lakers most expensive free agent signings have both been removed from the starting lineup and may not be long for Los Angeles.

Losing Oubre would be rough, but if Washington is really committed to using their 2017 pick (or trading it elsewhere for another piece) this deal might be enticing enough to get the Lakers to bite. By acquiring Williams, the Wizards would be adding to their payroll for next season. What would they be willing to offer?

"I just play", Williams said, when asked if he'd like to play for a contending team. He is locked up for another season after this one and he would be an immediate contributor off the bench.
