Mike Conley and Eric Gordon have drawn interest from the LA Lakers.

The LA Lakers trade seems to be in the works for more pieces after adding Rui Hachimura. Los Angeles made a huge deal, sending Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks to the Washington Wizards on Monday. Los Angeles needed an arm and they got exactly that.

Now, the Lakers are expected to go after the veteran point guard. There are a few on the market, and there’s a good chance more will become available during the buying market period.

Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report reported that the Lakers are still looking for a modest deal after adding Hachimura:

“After acquiring Rui Hachimura from the Wizards on Monday, the Lakers could still explore minor deals around guards Lonnie Walker IV and Patrick Beverley.”

He then added who the Lakers might be interested in, including Utah Jazz Guard Mike Connelly.

“Connelly’s contract is favorable, with $14.3 million of the $24.4 million guaranteed next season. A similar (real or wannabe) suitor is thought to be interested, among others: the Lakers, Clippers and Timberwolves. ,” Pincus wrote.

Pincus reported that teams are interested. Houston Rockets Guard Eric Gordon are The Phoenix SunsLakers, and Milwaukee Bucks:

“A compromise could consist of a pick swap, the Milwaukee Bucks’ first use with Houston (projected to be around No. 25) from the 2021 PJ Tucker trade. Will be dealt by the deadline. Interested.” The teams include the Suns, Lakers and Bucks.”

Will the LA Lakers trade take them over the top? Maybe not yet. However, with health and proper growth, LeBron James And Anthony Davis Could be scarier than any other pairing in basketball. There’s a reason these two have won an NBA championship together, already, and it’s not out of line to see them do it again.

The Lakers will have to make the right decisions, as they did with the Hachimura move. Let’s see what general manager Rob Pelinka comes up with as the Lakers look to become championship contenders again.
