Lakers interested in DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic?

According to our cousin who is on Erasmus in Los Angeles, Rob Pelinka’s office stays lit all night right now. The general manager and his followers are in the oven and in the mill preparing for all contingencies and rumours. The latest, a trade with the Bulls to finally get their hands on DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic in exchange for Russell Westbrook.

What do transfer rumors and snow have in common? Both are usually announced long weeks in advance and arrive en masse from December. On the Los Angeles side, don’t worry, the snowflakes probably won’t fall unless City Hall decides to open a ski slope on the Venice Beach side, but that’s none of our business. Instead of the white coat, rumors of trades have crashed in the City of Angels in recent days. Rob Pelinka has a three-pronged plan for his thesis aimed at getting LeBron James and Anthony Davis as much help as possible, and the latter possibility should serve them well.

Faucet’s specific partner for this exchange is on the other side of the country, specifically in Chicago. The Bulls have looked more like bulls since the start of the season and they are in twelfth place in the East with 9 wins to 13 losses. Zach LaVine is grumpy, Lonzo Ball is still crouching in the infirmary and the Bulls’ momentum seems to have disappeared since the failed end of the season and elimination in the first round of the Playoffs.

What makes you want to change everything on the shores of Lake Michigan? Hard to say but anyway at the Lakers we tell ourselves that there might be an opening. In his podcast, the insider ofESPN Zach Lowe secured it the Angelinos discussed the possibility of a trade internally who would send Russell Westbrook along with the first two rounds of the 2027 and 2029 Draft in exchange for DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic.

“The trade I saw on Twitter was for Russ and the two draft rounds, including one with light protection, for DeRozan and Vucevic. I can tell you with 100% certainty that the Lakers have had internal discussions about this possibility, should it ever come up. »

We know the song, no smoke without fire, no feathers without birds and therefore no rumors without trades? Whatever, the opportunity, in the short term, will be very nice for the Lakers who will regain two elements that can give them a big hand. Vucevic would compact the racquet and bring his points and his solidity, as for DeMar DeRozan he would finally be playing at home with a real chance at a ring on the end of the ball. We’re also talking about a guy who carried the Bulls all season and averaging 25.8 points in his first 22 games. He would definitely become the third thief that all of La La Land dreams of. Russell Westbrook would pack his bags – ready for the ages – in Chicago, but certainly not for very long. By making this trade, the Bulls will in any case draw a line under their Playoffs project that was started not so long ago in favor of a new reconstruction, especially based on the two picks of the Lakers. Suffice it to say that Benny The Bull would take control of the tank.

While his little proteges do the work in the field, Rob Pelinka also remembers that he has to justify his salary. The GM of the Lakers starts to come into action and the first sparks fly from his firestone. The fire is planned after December 15, but the fans of Angelina already imagining watching a new super team…be careful, we know how it ended last time.
