Everyone is talking about the possibility of Kyrie Irving becoming a Laker in the next few days. But it's really what the Los Angeles Lakers need? It has already been implied that if the Russell Westbrook trade does not go through before training camp, the Los Angeles Lakers will start preparing for next season with the current roster.

While everything seems to indicate that Kyrie Irving will become a Laker, the reality is that there is another possibility for the Los Angeles Lakers, which would be much more effective and would help to have a more complete roster for next season.

We have more schedule leaks, 'revenge' games are set

We are talking about the Indiana Pacers players; Buddy Hield and Myles Turner. It is not new news that these two are under the radar of the Los Angeles Lakers. If we analyze last season, having 3 superstars was not a good bet, so it is a big risk the incirporation of Kyrie Irving. Also, there is a possibility that like in Cleveland, Kyrie could have differences with LeBron James.

On the other hand if you get the Buddy Hield and Myles Turner trade, the Los Angeles Lakers would have a starting five that is simply spectacular. It would be 2 players with the label of superstars and 3 players who without being superstars have the ability to be among the best in the league.

The missing of 3 point shooters

An added value that the Los Angeles Lakers would get is that Buddy Hield is an excellent 3-point shooter. In 2020, he became the winner of the All-Star weekend three-point contest. Last season the Los Angeles Lakers had a very low three-point percentage. No doubt this would be an outstanding thing for the Lakers. Whether or not Buddy Hield and Myles Turner arrive, let's hope that under Darvin Ham the Lakers can improve their 3-point shooting.
