8. Mychal Thompson
Mychal Thompson was acquired by the Lakers in the 1986-1987 season from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Frank Brickowski, Petur Gudmundsson and two future draft picks. To some the move was a surprise because Brickowski was hardly used as a reserve, and Gumundsson had not played yet during ’86-’87 season. Thompson would serve as a key reserve in the Lakers last two championships in the ‘80s.
