Cheaters. . .
Over the last few days, the Los Angeles Lakers privately informed Kyle Kuzma that he would be moved from the team. In that same time, the Detroit Pistons also told both Derrick Rose and Andre Drummond to pack their bags. Well, it’s being brought to our attention that a three-team deal involving all players is on the verge of happening.
The Lakers are planning to send Kuzma to the Detroit Pistons and will eventually receive Drummond and D-Rose. The Atlanta Hawks are the third team involved in the trade, as they’ll take on the contracts of Avery Bradley and JaVale McGee, as well as future draft picks from Los Angeles.
This is the major deal ahead of the deadline we’re hearing about, which will begin with an initial deal of Drummond to the Hawks, where they’ll flip him back to LA for picks. The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics (not sure why) are the only two other teams aggressively pursuing Rose, who’s a big target this trade deadline.
Take a look at the breakdown below.
Lakers: Andre Drummond, Derrick Rose
Pistons: Kyle Kuzma
Hawks: Avery Bradley, JaVale McGee & Lakers Picks
