LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, and others made together one of the most intimidating squads in the NBA. However, their on-court synergy fell short of expectations.
Fans were taken aback when the Los Angeles Lakers were predicted to be a title contender this season. Instead, the California-based franchise has not been participating in the Playoffs this year due to its poor record.
Aside from LeBron, practically all of the Lakers’ players failed to live up to their potential during the regular season. Thus, the team is anticipated to enter a new era after their terrible season.
Lakers’ possible targets revealed
Several players have been associated with the Purple and Gold recently. More names have been added to that list, according to NBA officials who have revealed possible trade prospects for the team.
“Who could the Lakers target with the pair? It might be tough to get anything done without giving up a future first-rounder, and the Lakers are short in that respect—they can’t trade a pick until 2027, and are reluctant to give up picks that far out. But it won’t be impossible. The exec threw out, hypothetically, Duncan Robinson of the [Miami] Heat, Malik Beasley of the [Minnesota] Timberwolves, and Christian Wood of the [Houston] Rockets.”Sean Deveney of Heavy
