The Lakers reportedly "engaged Sacramento in talks" to send their No. 2 pick to the Kings for the No. 5 and No. 10 picks, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.
Per Aldridge, the Kings did say no to this deal, and the Lakers had the idea they would package one of those picks to get Paul George. If true, there are a couple things to consider here. First, this really shows how much the Lakers want to turn this team around in a hurry. Secondly, the Lakers may not be locked in on drafting Lonzo Ball at two, and again freeing up money for free agents is paramount for them. Expect another Lakers trade in the next 36 hours.
