As the NBA trade deadline rapidly approaches, teams are staring at a trade deadline that is closing in abruptly. This season, the trade deadline is on Feb. 9 but the rumors have stretched all the way back to before the start of the season.

The Lakers roster was one that has long been constructed with the idea of trading away Russell Westbrook on the mind. Their gluttony of guards has existed for the entirety of the season leading up to the trade deadline and has only been made more confusing by Westbrook’s improved play this season. But it’s clearly been a subpar roster that has needed upgrading and LeBron James has pleaded for those upgrades.

According to our friends at DraftKings, some of the most likely players to be traded have been linked to the Lakers. Cam Reddish is the second odds-on favorite at -250 while Bojan Bogdanovic is right behind him at -200. And while it once felt inevitable, Russell Westbrook is well down the list at +220 odds to be dealt now.

The links and reports have been aplenty by the actual trades and deals have been virtually non-existent. Still, in an effort to keep you up to date on all the reports, we’ll be tracking all the reputable rumors that link the Lakers to various trade targets as well as constantly updating the players on the Lakers roster who could be on their way out.
