This Knicks-Lakers trade sends an intriguing scorer to L.A.

The New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are two of the most valuable franchises in the NBA with rich histories. In today’s NBA, the Lakers are the team to beat led by Lebron James and Anthony Davis while the Knicks have been a bit of a laughingstock for quite a few years. Despite their different directions, these two teams can help each other out in a trade such as this one.

The Lakers are currently 11-4 and one of the best teams in the league. This is no surprise as they are coming off an NBA Championship and made improvements during the offseason. This included the additions of Dennis Schroder and Montrezl Harrell, who are both scoring 14 points per game in 15 games this season. And of course, both LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been their usual dominant selves. This is a team that is ready to become the next great dynasty in the league.

As for the Knicks, they have some work to do. New York is currently 7-8 to this point in the season, which is a bit of a surprise given their personnel. Julius Randle has been the biggest contributor. He is averaging 22.8 points, 11 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per contest.

All three lead the team. R.J. Barrett has been on a tear recently but is struggling from three-point range, shooting just 21.5%. Immanuel Quickley and Mitchell Robinson are other young players who fans feel good about moving forward. The Knicks have a core to rely on and attempt to build around.

This is not a trade that either team necessarily needs to make but it would certainly interest both parties. Let’s take a look at what it might take to put New York and Los Angeles together for a deal.
