NBA Trade Rumors: LA Lakers To Acquire Jimmy Butler In Exchange Of Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle?
In an attempt to build a strong trio in their team, the Los Angeles Lakers are looking to acquire a player from another NBA team before the training camp and the official season begin. It is no surprise then that Jimmy Butler, Chicago Bulls' shooting guard and small forwards, is being considered by LA to take the open post.
The trade rumors are stronger than ever now as the 2016-2017 NBA season is just around the corner. According to recent NBA trade rumors, Butler, 27, is apparently set to be traded for Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle. The Lakers' effort of building the best team is in the light of possibly being one of the greatest competitors this season. With Butler being a strong team player, the Lakers management believes that they will achieve the best results as they also believe that this will be one of the best decisions they will make.
In addition, the trade is supposedly a part of the plan to fill the shoes of former Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant who has recently retired from the game, according to Mobile & Apps. The Lakers management is eyeing Butler's offensive skills. So far, he holds a record of 20.9 average points, 5.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists last season. If Butler brings these in during his stay in the Lakers, there may be a big chance that the team will be able to conquer the Western Conference league.
The trade is seen as a win-win situation as the Chicago Bulls may have a better harmony after getting Clarkson and Randle on the team as support to the Rondo-Wade tandem. Yahoo News shared that Butler was having a problem working together with the two last season.
Although the rumors about the trade are pretty strong online, the decision is still up to Chicago Bulls to let one of their best players join another NBA team.
Final word on the news may be confirmed sometime in December in tune to the end of Clarkson's contract.
