The Los Angeles Lakers are likely to make a smaller deal that would involve at most one of their first-round picks following Anthony Davis’ injury, sources told Jovan Buha of The Athletic.
Davis will miss at least one month due to a right foot injury.
The likeliest trade package would involve some combination of Patrick Beverley, Kendrick Nunn, and one of their first-round picks in 2027 or 2029, likely with a protection.
The Lakers are looking for a 3-and-D wing or a combo forward to play next to LeBron James and Davis, though they do not believe there is a player out there that would put the team in immediate contention.
Some names to watch include Jae Crowder, Eric Gordon, Alec Burks, P.J. Washington, and Kelly Oubre Jr., according to sources.
