The Los Angeles Lakers have once again been bested out by another team in their pursuit of getting a star player alongside their dynamic duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. It was none other than the former Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving who was expected to be traded to the Lakers.

Instead, the Nets decided to trade Kyrie to the Dallas Mavericks, which shocked the Lakers fanbase. Despite losing out on Irving, the Lakers are still optimistic about improving the roster ahead of Feb 09, 2023, NBA Trade Deadline.

But a big question remains if there are any players available that the Lakers can realistically get.

Despite the Lakers being 25-29 in the league, they still have the focus of most of the media and fans out there. Keeping that in mind, the fans always want to stay updated with what will happen next for the Purple and Gold.
