The Los Angeles Lakers looked locked and loaded to potentially win their second straight NBA championship. They cruised their way through the postseason down in Orlando and are making things look easy once again. The Lakers currently sit near the top of the Western Conference and this is a position that they are going to get comfortable in over the next few years.
Los Angeles signed both LeBron James and Anthony Davis to contract extension to the offseason. Davis is going to miss time with an injury but the Lakers are still loaded all over the floor. Any offseason, the Lakers made moves that improved the lineup further.
Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell were two new additions and are both working out well to this point. Harrell is on a long short-term contract and the Lakers could look for some more control.
The Indiana Pacers could be an interesting team to watch out for. Since trading Victor Oladipo, Indiana may be best suited getting back involved in NBA trade rumors. Myles Turner is a name to keep an eye on. He has three years left on his deal where he will be paid $17.5 million in each of them.
The emergence of Domantas Sabonis could force Indiana to look for a trade partner for Myles Turner. There will be many teams interested and the Lakers could be one of them.
Turner would solidify the frontcourt of the Lakers even further. Let’s take a look at what it might take to land him in Los Angeles this season.
