Patrick Beverley's name has been bandied about in trade rumors, as the Los Angeles Lakers seek to upgrade their roster. Beverley's $13 million contract is the Lakers best piece of salary-matching in a deal, assuming a Russell Westbrook deal is off the table.

Los Angeles is rumored to have offered Beverley to the Detroit Pistons as part of a deal for Bojan Bogdanovic. However, the Pistons wanted an unprotected first-round pick and the deal never progressed.

If traded to a rebuilding team, Beverley will reportedly seek a buyout. Beverley would then look to return to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite trading him this summer, the Wolves would be eligible to re-sign Beverley after a buyout. This is because Beverley would have been moved on from the Utah Jazz, who were the original acquiring team.
