The Los Angeles Lakers are gearing up for the repeatable mission of being the NBA champions next season and will face some intriguing storylines. One of them is the pursuit of a third star that could be paired with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Could Derrick Rose of the Detroit Pistons be an option?
Rajon Rondo is a freelance player who has turned down his player choices, and he can be in high demand this season. While that̵7;s great for Rondo, it leaves a hole that the Lakers need to address if he leaves.
The Lakers will have their options in the freelance agency, and there will also be some attractive commercial options — one of them appears to be Rose.
Rose is entering the final year of his contract in Detroit, and there seems to be growing speculation that Pistons could trade him this vacation before his contract expires in 2021.
Let’s look at a hypothetical deal that will bring Derrick Rose to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he will reunite with LeBron James.
