Lakers Podcast: Will the Lakers make a trade to clear up their frontcourt logjam?

Breaking down the crowded big man rotation in Los Angeles.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Golden State Warriors Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It’s no secret that the Los Angeles Lakers have a lot of centers and power forwards who are going to want minutes this season. Between Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Jr., Brook Lopez, Luol Deng, Kyle Kuzma, Thomas Bryant and Ivica Zubac, Lakers head coach Luke Walton is going to have quite the minutes distribution dilemma on his hands.

After discussing the reports that the Lakers were looking to add a director of player development, hosts Harrison Faigen and Anthony Irwin dove into the jam-packed frontcourt situation in Los Angeles. The two debated how many minutes each player should get, who should and will be out of the rotation, and if the Lakers should or will trade any of their big men during the season on the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.

Also, the ending featured Anthony’s reaction to Nick Van Exel making a prediction about a game of one-on-one between the two of them, so stick around for the final minutes.
