Lakers Trade Proposal Will Send Elite 3-Point Shooter For Jalen Hood-Schifino

The Los Angeles Lakers will have a busy offseason as the front office is looking for ways to add a star player to their roster. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are doing a great job on the basketball floor, but the Lakers really need another star to add depth to their game. There are several potential scenarios for the Lakers and the most recent trade proposal is a shocker. Zach Buckley from Bleacher Report reported that the Lakers could go after Seth Curry this summer.

The Charlotte Hornets would get Jalen Hood-Schifino, and the Lakers would get Curry, No.42 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft, and a 2026 second-rounder.

“Some team short on shooting like the Lakers could want a crack at Curry, who has converted 43.1 percent of his career three-point attempts,” Buckley wrote on May 29. “They might also covet these two second-rounders to help sweeten the pot for a bigger deal down the line, though they’d have to cut costs to sneak below the first apron to make this move possible.

“If that’s all it takes for the Hornets to get Hood-Schifino, whom the Lakers drafted with the No. 17 overall pick last year, they should pounce. He barely hit the NBA hardwood as a rookie, but he still has a sky-high ceiling given his positional size, playmaking and ability to create out of the pick-and-roll.”

Lakers could improve their three-point shooting via a valid trade proposal

The Lakers have to add an effective three-point shooter in order to improve their shooting woes. Players scored 11.7 threes per game this past season and these numbers have to go up in the 2024-25 NBA season.

Lakers players shot 37.6% from beyond the arc, but made 31.0 attempts per game.

All NBA teams, including the Lakers, will try to improve their shooting from the three-point line. Top contenders shoot threes with ease and the Lakers have to work on this aspect of the game.
