Danny Green could be traded by Lakers’: NBA Champion explains why LeBron James and co. could ship him out of LA

Published

on

Lakers’ forward Danny Green is fully aware that a trade might be in his future, with LeBron James and co. looking to upgrade their roster.

The Los Angeles Lakers are champions again, after 10 long years. With a championship, there always comes along a target on your back, as now you become the team to beat. The Lakers would like to utilize their time with LeBron James and Anthony Davis and win as much as they can.

To stay champions, the Lakers would have to lock down their current squad. Along with that, they will look to improve through trades and free agency.

The current Laker squad has 11 free agents and a lot of uncertainty. Next year a lot of teams are returning with vengeance(Clippers, Celtics, Bucks, Heat, etc), and a few old competitors are coming back after a down season (Warriors and Nets).

Danny Green knows there is a chance he might get traded too

The bubble wasn’t the best for Danny Green. He was already facing a lot of hate from the ‘fans’, even before he missed a chance to seal the Finals in Game 5.

Despite all of the troubles, Danny Green was part of the reason the Lakers had a good regular season. Now the thing is, if the Lakers want to trade for a star, there are chances that he would be in the package as well.

With LeBron James and the Lakers vying for another title, the Lakers are well aware that they would need some massive upgrades to their roster, as both the Nets and the Warriors would come out all guns blazing next season.

Hence, getting a superstar is very important, in order to keep their rivals on their toes.

Whatever the case may be, as long as Rob Pelinka does it in a respectful manner, Danny Green says he is fine. He’s been in the league long enough to know the business-oriented nature of the league.

Dennis Schroder is reportedly being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Danny Green and the 28th pick in the NBA Draft.

With perhaps the first official trade of this NBA offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to bolster their backcourt. This is also the first trade since the trade deadline ended back in February.

With reports indicating Rajon Rondo’s potential departure from the Lakeshow, the Lakers made sure they had a decent point guard to lead them into the 2020-21 NBA season.

However, in doing so, the Lakers have lost their marksman from beyond the arc.

Dennis Schroder to the Lakers; Danny Green to the Thunder

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed in principle to trade Danny Green and their 28th pick in this year’s NBA draft to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will be sending Dennis Schroder to the Lakers, officially, when the trade moratorium is lifted.

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was a valuable piece in OKC’s run to the 5th seed in the Western Conference. He averaged 18.9 points and 4 assists in 30 minutes of action. He also shot 38.5% from 3 point land.

LeBron James ‘tampers’ with Dennis Schroder during last season

A video of LeBron James hugging Dennis Schroder during a matchup between the Lakers and OKC last season resurfaced online.

NBA Twitter was seen freaking out over this video as they hilariously claim this is LeBron tampering whilst the season was in play.

LeBron James has a reputation for luring stars to his team throughout the entirety of a season to bolster his squad for the next season. It is also being reported the Lakers are already in the hunt for a replacement for Danny Green.
