This Lakers-Pistons trade pairs an intriguing star with LeBron James

The Los Angeles Lakers prepare for their quest to repeat as NBA champions next season and will face some intriguing storylines. One of which is the pursuit of a possible third star to pair with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Could Detroit Pistons’ Derrick Rose be an option?

Rajon Rondo is a free agent, having declined his player option, and he could be in high demand this offseason. While that’s great for Rondo, it leaves a hole that the Lakers need to address if he departs.

The Lakers will have their options in free agency, and there will be a few intriguing trade options as well— one of whom appears to be Rose.

Rose is entering the final year of his contract in Detroit, and there seems to be growing speculation that the Pistons could trade him this offseason before his contract expires in 2021.

Let’s take a look at a hypothetical trade that would send Derrick Rose to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he’d reunite with LeBron James.
