The Lakers are not rushing to make any moves to improve their roster, despite having a difficult start of the season.
Some speculated that the Purple and Gold simply don’t have an attractive trade deal on the table and are instead trying make the current roster work rather than make cosmetic changes.
According Jovan Buha of The Athletic, there might be one more reason for that. Starting December 15, the Lakers will be able to trade Patrick Beverley.
Buha thinks that the 34-yer-old point guard is a name to watch as a potential trade target. This season Beverley is having his lowest scoring average of 4.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 27.4 minutes per game.
