The Los Angeles Lakers have officially traded for Rui Hachimura, sending Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks to the Washington Wizards in exchange. Now in an official statement confirming the deal, Rob Pelinka revealed their thought process in pulling the trigger for the young Japanese star.

Pelinka noted that they really value Hachimura’s two-way skills, which they believe can help upgrade their wing position that’s severely lacking. With that said, they didn’t hesitate in agreeing to a deal for him when they were given the chance to do so.
