This Lakers-Pacers trade pairs intriguing star with LeBron James, Anthony Davis

The Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers are both teams who are looking to make some noise in their respective conferences. Obviously, the Lakers are coming off of a win in the NBA Finals over the Miami Heat, but the Pacers feel strongly about their current roster. However, a potential trade between the Pacers and Lakers for Malcolm Brogdon could make sense to pair with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Brogdon would be exactly the kind of player that could help take pressure off of James and Davis. He stepped up in a big way with the Pacers last season. But, the Lakers did just acquire Dennis Schroder from the Oklahoma City Thunder, who they are hoping can take on that role.

During the 2019-20 NBA season with the Pacers, Brogdon ended up averaging 16.5 points per game to go along with 7.1 assists and 4.9 rebounds. He shot 43.8 percent from the floor overall and knocked down 32.6 percent of his three-point shots.

Looking at those numbers, the Lakers should be interested in him if the Pacers made him available. Brogdon is a much better three-point shooter than his numbers last season showed. Back in the 2018-19 season with the Milwaukee Bucks, he connected on 42.6 percent of his three-point attempts.

All of that being said, let’s take a look at one intriguing trade that could make sense for both the Pacers and Lakers if L.A. would like to pair Malcolm Brogdon with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
