The Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets are discussing a trade involving a cap dump and a draft pick.

The Nuggets are looking to send out an expiring contract, either Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur or Wilson Chandler, in order to reduce their luxury tax.

The Lakers, meanwhile, would like to acquire a first round pick that they could send in a trade for Kawhi Leonard.

The Lakers could also trade Lonzo Ball in a separate move for assets that could be sent to the Spurs as they reportedly are not interested in him.
