Rob Pelinka confirmed that the Los Angeles Lakers are prepared to trade their first round picks in 2027 and 2029 if the right deal comes along.

LeBron James chose to extend with the Lakers in the offseason and Pelinka is prepared to fulfill their end of the bargain to maximize their odds of contending.

"Let me be abundantly clear: We have one of the great players in LeBron James to ever play the game, and he committed to us on a long-term contract, a three-year contract," Pelinka said. "So of course, we will do everything we can, picks included, to make deals to give us a chance to help LeBron get to the end. He committed to our organization. That's got to be a bilateral commitment, and it's there."
