NBA Rumors: As the companions of The Athletic have commented, the sports direction of Los Angeles Lakers has been in talks with the Indiana Pacers about a possible transfer of Buddy Hield or Myles Turner. However, at this time the negotiations would be deadlocked, since those from Minneapolis would ask for 2 unprotected first rounds of the draft and the Angelenos are willing to give a maximum of one.
Of course, this is only the beginning. It will be necessary to see if any of the contenders in this negotiation is capable of yielding. If the Angelenos when they see that the team does not work at the beginning of the campaign and need something else to aspire to the ring (or that they see that it works and want more to have a more powerful team) or the Pacers see that they will not be able to get more and in their reconstruction process they end up yielding.
an old yearning
The truth is that Buddy Hield is an old dream of Pelinka, who has been interested in him for several seasons, but between one thing and another he has not just become a laker. Last year he averaged 18 points per game with the Pacers. Without a doubt he would be an offensive plunger for the purple and gold team.
