The Los Angeles Lakers aren't in a good place in the standings right now when we consider the amount of talent on their roster. They have had a very erratic and inconsistent season, and have failed to go on a large winning run thus far.
There are still championship expectations for the Los Angeles Lakers, and there's a chance that the Lakers will make some changes to their roster ahead of the trade deadline to achieve those goals. While some believe that the right move would be staying put and not making a move due to the amount of talent on the roster, the Lakers could potentially decide to shake things up due to the lack of results this season. Here are the Lakers' best 3 options for a panic trade.
3. Eric Gordon
Los Angeles Lakers Receive: Eric Gordon
Houston Rockets Receive: Talen Horton-Tucker, Kendrick Nunn
Eric Gordon has quietly had a very productive season as a veteran on the Houston Rockets. The 32-year-old guard is currently averaging 14.7 PPG, 1.7 RPG, and 3.3 APG while shooting 44.5% from the 3PT range this season. It is easy to see how his shooting and supplementary shot creation will help the Los Angeles Lakers, and his playoff experience will be beneficial as well. Gordon would be a fantastic fit on the Lakers whether he's a starter or in the 6th man role.
