REPORT: Los Angeles Lakers Have “Real Interest” In Blockbuster In-Season Trade For Talented NBA All-Star

The Los Angeles Lakers are being linked to an all-star during the early stages of the season.

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine is no stranger to being in trade rumors. He is not being linked to the Lakers.

 

According to Jovan Buha of The Athletic, the team’s interest in him is real — at the right price.

“The Lakers’ interest in LaVine is real — at the right price,” Buha wrote. “However, LaVine’s potential availability also hints at the possibility of a fire sale in Chicago, with the organization seemingly looking to finally pivot away from its longstanding mediocrity. If additional Bulls players become available, the Lakers would also have interest in DeMar DeRozan and/or former Laker Alex Caruso, according to multiple team sources.”

The Bulls have started out the 2023-24 season 4-8 after a Wednesday last-second loss to the Orlando Magic.

Shams Charania and Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reported on Tuesday that the Bulls and LaVine have “increased openness” about a possible trade.

As for the Lakers, they’re now 6-6 after losing at home on Wednesday in a game where they were down as much as 20 points.

Lavine is currently putting up 21.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game this season while knocking down just 40.7 percent of his shots from the field. The Lakers could desperately use his scoring.

The team is hoping to get at least one more chance to fight for an NBA title after the team shocked everybody and made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals.
