Zach LaVine, G, Chicago Bulls

Not only is Zach LaVine a high-level, All-Star like talent, but he is a player that the Lakers could trade for and keep for many years to come, far after LeBron James retires. In a trade for LaVine, the Lakers would have to trade numerous draft picks, along with the likes of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Kuzma to make the financial work, however, this trade could not occur until near the trade deadline.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is ineligible to be traded by the Lakers until February 20, 2021 since he recently re-signed with Los Angeles this offseason. If this trade was to be done, the Lakers would have to wait until near the trade deadline in order to do so.

Zach LaVine has been a fantastic player over the years for the Chicago Bulls and was a border-line All-Star last year. In 60 games last year, LaVine averaged 25.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and shot 45% from the floor and 38% from three-point range. 

Bringing in a player like Zach LaVine to pair with LeBron James and Anthony Davis would almost be unfair and would set the Lakers up for numerous champions over the next few years. There would be no way to stop the Los Angeles Lakers offensively as they would have just too many weapons and high level scorers.

LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Dennis Schroder, Montrezl Harrell and Zach LaVine are all guys who can not only go for double-digit points on any given night, but go for 20+ points on any given night! LaVine is the perfect player to add for the Los Angeles Lakers and if they are able to put together a good enough trade package to land him, then good luck beating this team.
