Lakers Listed Among Disgruntled Former All-Star ‘Preferred’ Trade Destinations
November 19, 2023
The Los Angeles Lakers have been linked to several players in the last few seasons and there’s a new rumor linking the franchise to a former All-Star. The front office can make a move after December 15 as some of the tradeable players are actually ineligible for a trade by this date.
Is Zach LaVine a good option for the purple and gold? Shams Charania from The Athletic reported that the talented player is eyeing his trade options, meaning the Chicago Bulls could trade him sooner than expected.
LaVine had a chance to join the Lakers before the start of the 2022-23 NBA season and there were several potential suitors on the open market. The Bulls offered him a five-year deal and LaVine made a decision.

LaVine was able to make another decision and join the Lakers or any other NBA team. LA is not the only potential suitor at this point. Several teams have shown interest in LaVine, including the San Antonio Spurs and Sacramento Kings.
“I’m disappointed that I had to get an offer sheet from another team,” LaVine said on July of 2018. “But Sacramento stepped up and made a strong impression. It appears that Sacramento wants me more than Chicago.”
