I dont know if this is true or not but I got it here from

Michael Carter-Williams could be headed to the Los Angeles Lakers

According to one of the NBA rumors being circulated by Sportsrageous, the Lakers are interested in acquiring the versatile point guard from the Milwaukee Bucks. Going back to the Bucks in this NBA trade rumor would be guard Lou Williams and a second round pick.

On paper, this seems like an even trade for both the Lakers and Bucks. The Lakers would get a player with a couple of star qualities in Michael Carter-Williams. In turn, they would be giving up a productive Lou Williams just one year into his four-year deal with the team. In the end it sounds like a deal with two teams who are looking to make a change for the sake of change.

Michael Carter-Williams has been a disappointment since the Bucks traded for him, as reported by ESPN in 2015. The Bucks originally felt as if they found a guard in the image of their head coach, Jason Kidd. Carter-Williams has never truly fit with the Bucks. Living up to the expectations may be the problem here.

Instead of getting the second coming of Jason Kidd, they wound up getting was a player who needed a little bit of work on his control and decision. Over a year has passed with little results. So far the Bucks three-team trade with the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns has backfired and they want a do over.

MCW may be 6' 6" but he's no shooting guard.  I can't imagine why we would be interested in another point guard, especially one who can't shoot.  If this were next summer and Calderon and Huertas were gone and we signed him relatively cheap to be our pseudo Shawn Livingston then I guess I could buy it.  He's not a bad playmaker and he's certainly a defensive upgrade.  Good rebounder too but you'd have to surround him with 4 shooters.  I just don't think it makes any sense to trade for him this season.  We don't need a point guard, his fit is questionable, and he's a RFA next summer.  

 

Also Lol at us being the team throwing in the 2nd rounder.  The Bucks are trying to give this dude away they just offered him to the Kings for McLemore and the Kings turned it down.

Not much of a source. Not hearing this anywhere reputable. This sounds like one of those rumors that get started like this.

 

Some Forum posts about a trade proposal.

People discuss it quite a bit and some guy with a blog writes a story about the proposal.

Another blog takes that blog post and posts it as a "Rumor" and spices it up by saying it could happen at any time. 

 

If you aren't hearing it from legit guys like Woj, Stein, Ramona. etc then its 99.9% of the time not legit. 

 

Here is the link sources for the rabbit whole of blog posts.

Inquisitrs source being http://www.sportsrageous.com/

 

Heres the actual post http://www.sportsrag...-rounder/49649/

 

Go through the "Rumors" on that site and you will know there is no substance to this claim.

Stop posting trade rumors from these search engine scavenging sites like inquistor and yabidi.

And MCW is not some great get.  He doesnt need his own thread even if the rumor is true.

Would be a decent trade for us if true...smart player who would pick up the system quite easily.

 

But I have less than 0% faith in rumor sites...
