The Los Angeles Lakers were connected to a ton of players and teams in the lead-up to the NBA trade deadline, but ultimately couldn’t get a deal done, according to multiple reports.

Original story (and tracker) follows. Stay tuned to Silver Screen and Roll for more updates on the fallout from all this, and feel free to continue chatting throughout the day below.


With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching, teams have a fast-approaching cutoff date to make deals. This season, the deadline falls on Feb. 10 but as we all know, Lakers trade rumors started to flow fast well before then.

Considering the state of the Lakers and their current roster, a trade feels likely, whether a big move that sees them cash in on the likes of Talen Horton-Tucker, Kendrick Nunn and their 2027 first round draft pick, or a shuffling of the deck further down the roster with the team’s role players and those who are out of the rotation.

And as is always the case, the Lakers find themselves in the middle of all sorts of trade rumors. In an effort to sort through all those reports, we’ll be tracking all the (reputable) rumors connecting the Lakers to various trade targets, as well as keeping an eye on players currently on the roster they may be looking to send out.

Players the Lakers might acquire

John Wall

Gary Trent Jr.

Cam Reddish

Alec Burks

  • Burks may be on the way over from the Knicks as well, as he is being discussed as part of the same multi-team deal above.

Terrence Ross

Eric Gordon

Myles Turner

  • Prior to his injury, the Lakers were linked repeatedly to Myles Turner. However, given the fact he likely will not be available until after the trade deadline, links to the Lakers — and other teams — have died down for Turner and the Pacers.
  • However, that hasn’t stopped one enterprising TikTok model from attempting to lure Turner to the Lakers with promises of a date. Yes, really.
  • Unfortunately for her, it appears that the Domantas Sabonis trade has Turner primed and pleased to stay with the Pacers.
