This Lakers-Pistons trade would pair up Derrick Rose with LeBron James

Derrick Rose has done an amazing job of turning his career around over the last couple of years, including a solid 2019-20 campaign with the Detroit Pistons. In fact, heading into the offseason, Rose carries quite a bit of trade value. The Los Angeles Lakers were talked about as a potential trade destination for him at the trade deadline to pair up with LeBron James.

At this point in time, the Pistons simply are not ready to compete. They traded Andre Drummond to the Cleveland Cavaliers and do not have a lot of talent ready to win right now. Trading Rose to the Lakers could very well make perfect sense for the franchise.

During the 2019-20 NBA season in 50 games, including 15 starts, Rose ended up averaging 18.1 points per game to go along with 5.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds. He shot 49 percent from the floor and knocked down 30.6 percent of his three-point attempts.

Rose would be an intriguing fit alongside James and Anthony Davis. He has played with James once before with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Due to injuries, things didn’t work out quite the way the Cavs were hoping.

All of that being said, when Rose is healthy, he can still be a very effective player. Here is a trade that both the Pistons and Lakers should be interested in that would land Rose in a “big three” with James and Davis.
