Everyone is thinking that the only way a new superstar will come to the Los Angeles Lakers is if Russell Westbrook leaves, however we have mentioned in the past that there is a possibility that another Lakers star could be the one to leave.A new rumor has surfaced about a possible trade the Los Angeles Lakers would make.
 

While everything seems to indicate that the Los Angeles Lakers will debut on October 18 against the Golden State Warriors with the current roster, the reality is that the Lakers are looking to improve their roster in order to be competitive this upcoming season.NBA Insider Sean Deveney recently spoke with a Western Conference executive who told to the heavy.com reporter that the Chicago Bulls could be a potential partner in a deal involving Zack Lavine and Anthony Davis.More Lakers news

You won't believe what Victor Oladipo had to say about Russell Westbrook

They've gone crazy. The Lakers want to risk their future for a player.

“The main way it would happen if it was going to happen was to get Davis somewhere he wants to go, and the main place he’d want to go is Chicago, where he’s from,” the executive told Deveney. “Now, some guys do not want to play in their hometown but I think A.D. would welcome that, he spoke on that before. Doesn’t mean it would happen, they have not gone out and tried to trade him, but there could be something simple like Zach LaVine for A.D., you get a pair of guys going to places they really want to be. It would have to wait until January but that would be the deal that makes the most sense if A.D. is going to change teams.”

 

It's not the first time Zack Lavine has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, and it's not the first time someone has suggested Anthony Davis' departure to bring someone else to the Los Angeles team. However, while financially viable, we do not believe that LeBron James would agree to this trade and while LeBron is not the decision maker, he does have the power to approve or disapprove of any decision. 

 

Darvin Ham's decision 

Beyond rumors, Darvin Ham has already stated that Anthony Davis will be the fundamental piece for his team to be able to achieve good results. According to Ham, he met with LeBron James to discuss the goals for the season and the two agreed that the offense will run through Anthony Davis. The Lakers are not yet complete and are looking for a player to help them compete for the championship next season.
