NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Shop Lou Williams, Unlikely To Deal Julius Randle, D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr

The Los Angeles Lakers are receiving an “awful lot of interests” for its young core. But Mitch Kupchak and his team are unlikely to move any of their budding talents.

The Los Angeles Lakers are receiving an “awful lot of interests” for its young core. But Mitch Kupchak and his team are unlikely to move any of their budding talents. Rather, the Lakers have shopped veterans like Lou Williams.

D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, and Larry Nance Jr comprise the Lakers’ young core. Kupchak has made it clear that the franchise isn’t willing to trade anyone before the deadline, reports the Real GM.

Rather, the franchise has shopped veterans like Lou Williams, Roy Hibbert, Brandon Bass and Nick Young. The Lakers will have a significant cap space in the coming off-season with the expiring contracts of Kobe Bryant and Roy Hibbert and the rising cap limit.

Lou Williams is drawing trade interests in the market. According to Michael Pina of Bleacher Report, the teams that failed to acquire Lou Williams in free agency are eager to grab the opportunity to sign him before the deadline. Williams signed a three-year deal last summer with Lakers, but teams will pounce on the player and a recognized scorer off the bench.

If a trade isn’t ratified ahead of the deadline, Williams may leave Lakers after finishing this season.
