This Hornets-Lakers trade is focused on Devonte’ Graham

The Los Angeles Lakers look like they are in position to win their second-straight NBA title. They are once again one of the top teams in the league and this is not going to change. The front office was aggressive in the offseason and this is something we could continue to see at the deadline.

Los Angeles is currently 24-13 and third in the Western Conference. Seeding is not a huge concern for Los Angeles. When being led by LeBron James, a team know that they are going to be there at the end. Both James and Anthony Davis signed extensions in the offseason.

LeBron James is in the midst of an MVP-caliber season leading the way for the Lakers. Both Montrezl Harrell and Dennis Schroder have been welcomed additions and the front office could look to make some more moves.

The Charlotte Hornets come to mind when thinking of backcourt options. They drafted LaMelo Ball with the third-overall pick in the draft and he is showing that he is going to be a star. He has taken over a starting role and has been dynamic right away.
