Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Lakers aren’t abandoning a summer pursuit of stars, but rather recalibrating their focus on a 2019 class that could include Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Jimmy Butler.
The team has now won 10 of their past 14 games and two of the players most often discussed in trade discussions, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson, have played key roles of late. The front office has listened to offers or explored trades for both players but no deal is imminent and there is still a 50-50 chance they get moved. It’s anyone’s guess what happens until the trade deadline but owners should hold onto both of them for now as they have been superb for owners in standard leagues.
