Beijing time October 13th, the Los Angeles Lakers just won the 17th championship trophy in team history, many people have begun to discuss how the Purple and Gold need to be strengthened to be able to hit consecutive championships next season. To this end, the US media "Clutchpoints" listed three trading plans for the Lakers, mainly to help the Lakers reinforce their guard line.
The Hornets first introduced Rozier and wanted him to be the team's chief point guard. However, considering Rozier's offensive limitations, allowing him to partner with excellent frontcourt players may be able to develop his potential. In addition, the Hornets have begun to vigorously cultivate Derwent Graham, Rozier is not the team's not for sale. If Rozier can join the Lakers, he will be expected to become an important member of the Lakers rotation, strengthening the Lakers backcourt defense.
Rozier's regular season stats this season: 18.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 41% three-point shooting.
LaVine played the peak season this season, if the Lakers can get LaVine, the team's third point problem will be solved. LaVine can use outside shooting to open up the offensive space, and like to play conversion, which will make him a perfect match for James and thick eyebrows.
Lawen regular season data: 25.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 38% three-point shooting
Oladipo has already stated that he does not want to play for the Pacers anymore. If the Lakers can get Oladipo, the 28-year-old All-Star guard has the ability to become the third scoring point for the championship team. Similar to LaVine, Oladipo also likes to play conversions, and can open up the offensive space by shooting, and he is also an excellent defender, these characteristics are what the Lakers desire to strengthen.
Oladipo has one year left on his contract with the Pacers. Next season, his salary will be $21 million.
Oladipo played only 19 regular season games after his comeback this season, averaging 14.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 0.9 steals per game, shooting 39.4% from the field and 31.7% from the three-point range. In the playoffs, he averaged 17.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.3 steals, shooting 39.3% from the field and 36.4% from the three-point range. It can be seen that Oladipo, who has experienced a torn quadriceps tendon in his right knee, is still slowly searching for a state.
Next season, as the Warriors' Curry and Thompson return from injury, and the Clippers' Leonard and George further run in, the championship Lakers are bound to encounter more intense competition in the West. If you want to defend the title next season, the Lakers management obviously still has a lot of work to do.
