The Los Angeles Lakers are on the lookout for rotation upgrades. This isn't anything new, but the Lakers stance on trading future first-round picks may be softening, which could actually lead to a deal.
Los Angeles discussed a trade with the Detroit Pistons that would send both Bojan Bogdanovic and Nerlens Noel to the Lakers. The Pistons have insisted on a first-round pick in exchange for Bogdanovic, meaning the Lakers would have to give in and move a future first to the Pistons. Los Angeles would also need to send players to Detroit to satisfy the salary-matching rules in a trade.
There is still a sense around the league that the Lakers aren't willing trade both of their trade-eligible first-round picks. But it is known that Los Angeles is looking to upgrade their rotation, following LeBron James recent comments and the team's run of strong play.
