This Lakers-Rockets trade features an intriguing sharpshooter to L.A.

These two Western Conference teams are heading in very different directions this season. The Los Angeles Lakers are looking like a team ready to win their second straight championship while the Houston Rockets are blowing up the roster and rebuilding. This trade is a chance for the two teams to help each other out.

Los Angeles just suffered their first road loss of the season at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers. They are now 14-5 on the season. Both LeBron James and Anthony Davis are playing at a high-level this season. The Lakers made moves in free agency and through trades to improve their roster in the offseason. If they want to make one more move prior to the NBA trade deadline, they could look to add a sharpshooter.

The Rockets would have some players to offer. They finally ended the LeBron James Harden drama by sending him to the Brooklyn Nets. Players like Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker have been rumored to be on the market but they would not be involved in this particular trade.

Ben McLemore is an interesting name to watch moving forward for the Lakers. He is a depth piece that would give the Lakers some more help on the perimeter.

When looking at this deal, there are positives and negatives for each team. This is the case with any trade you could make. Let’s take a look at what it might take for the Lakers to get another piece in the backcourt.
