According to Howard Beck of Sports Illustrated, the Los Angeles Lakers have inquired about a deal that would involve two players of the Detroit Pistons – Bojan Bogdanović and Nerlens Noel.
“Maybe that will be the case,” Beck said. “I’ve heard the Lakers and Pistons have discussed a deal that would include both Bogdanović and Nerlens Noel. Since the Pistons are demanding draft assets in any deal for Bogdanović, it’s sort of a given that the Lakers would have to surrender a first-round pick to make a deal. Maybe they make a second deal to fortify the rotation further. Will they be willing to trade both picks that are currently trade-eligible? The sense around the league is they won’t. But we’ll see.”
