Why do Lakers fans continually discuss trading for AD as if it's something that's guaranteed to happen? The Lakers don't even have the best possible package for him, especially considering the best piece available is Kyle Kuzma or Brandon Ingram. Both who are shooting well below league average from 3.
It's one of the reasons why I have been pro development. I still believe Ingram can be a star but I'm not sure LA is going to develop him the way he needs to. He's also not producing enough as a player today for any team to seriously consider trading their best player that's a top 7 player for him in a trade.
It's kinda lose lose with him right now because Lebron and the higher stakes to win. IDC what the front office says they want to win this year. On the flipside fans have to understand that they did not have the option to trade for Kawhi. The Spurs were NOT looking to get Brandon Ingram as the centerpiece for Kawhi. The media just has a way of reporting [expletive] for clicks because the Lakers bring the interest.
