The Los Angeles Lakers figure to remain active leading to the trade deadline, but it will be the types of deals that don't mortgage their future.
"Here's the line they have to walk: they're not going to give away picks and their top young players in some deal that makes them incrementally better this season because they have to save all those assets for Anthony Davis, a big trade this summer either pre or post free agency," said Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Lakers signed Tyson Chandler after his buyout and have also pursued Trevor Ariza.
"The absolute dream scenario, people talk about (how) they can trade for Anthony Davis or sign a free agent. The dream scenario is they do both."
Lowe also talked about the goal is to sign a free agent first using their cap space and then use their remaining assets to trade for Davis.
