The Los Angeles Lakers GM Rob Pelinka has been making moves to contend for the next championship title in the 2023-24 season, but he is also already thinking ahead to make a competitive roster for years to come.

Since the last season, the purple and gold have been rumored to be interested in signing the Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine, who is a proven guard and two-time NBA All-Star that could be on the move shortly according to the Lakers Nation's Ryan Ward.

The Lakers are still on the list for his potential next team, as seen in the odds made by betonline_ag, even when they are pretty far down with a +1400 odd. It remains to be Pelinka and Coach Ham's decision if they want to make a move for the guard.

At the moment doesn't seem to be a necessity for the Lakers to sign another guard, as they have for the PG position the starting D'Angelo Russell, and new signing Gabe Vincent, even Austin Reaves could play in that role, and the 2023 draft pick Jalen Hood-Schifino.

What is against Zach LaVine's chances to land in LA in the future

As proven by this offseason, Pelinka and Ham aren't going for big names or big salaries, they have been focusing on looking for what they need and the talent more than a star. This could affect the chances for LaVine to play with the purple and gold in the next couple of seasons.
