Defending NBA champions Los Angeles Lakers made a big move by trading for the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Dennis Schroder. Though this may not be the last big move that the Lakers make this offseason.
Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said he wants to keep most of the players from last season, but he didn’t rule out another big move. Los Angeles “try to stay fluid and not paint ourselves into a corner,” Pelinka said, per Harrison Faigen.
A prominent name that the Lakers have been showing interest in is DeMar DeRozan. He has recently opted into his player option with the San Antonio Spurs. Though the Lakers could still work out a trade for him. One way for that would be to sign and trade Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
