The NBA trade deadline is less than a week away and it could be one of the most active trade deadlines the NBA has seen in quite some time. There is expected to be a lot of talent relocating at the season’s midway point, and we could witness a blockbuster deal go down between a pair of playoff hopeful teams. Toronto Raptors star Kyle Lowry could be moved and the Los Angeles Lakers have been named a potential landing spot.
The Lakers are a team who would currently be in the playoffs if the season ended today, but unfortunately for the squad they still have another half of a season to embark on. The Lakers have a solid starting five, but a slew of unprecedented injuries have dampened the Lakers’ hopes of repeating as champions.
One player who could be an appealing option for the Lakers is none other than Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. Lowry, 34, has spent 15 years in the NBA and has established himself as an effective shooter who can play in a variety of roles.
There’s no doubt that adding Kyle Lowry to a team that already has a variety of solid talent would be a great move, but it will surely cost the team. However, that price would be worth paying if it helps weather the storm until LeBron James and Anthony Davis return to the court.
Let’s take a look at what a potential deal between these teams could look like.
