The Los Angeles Lakers have increased their offer to the Sacramento Kings for Buddy Hield by including the No. 22 pick in the draft along with Montrezl Harrell and either Kyle Kuzma or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, sources tell Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer.
"Hield to L.A. now has real traction," writes O'Connor.
Hield has three seasons left on his contract: $22 million next season, then $20.5 million, and then $18.6 million.
Rob Pelinka represented Hield before he joined the front office of the Lakers.
