NBA Rumors: LA Lakers interested in Bradley Beal trade scenarios – Sportskeeda


The LA Lakers are looking for a change to get them back to the winning side. Accordingly, they have shown interest in acquiring All-Star guard Bradley Beal via trade.
The Lakers (2-9) have struggled this season, and their offense has been a major problem. In light of its on-court struggles, Los Angeles has looked at trading for a star. Beal’s name came up as the player the team is interested in landing
According to Chris Haynes, the Lakers covet the three-time All-Star.
In the article written by Haynes, it’s an option by the Lakers if Beal decides to request a trade. That hasn’t been the case as the one-time All-NBA is looking loyal to the Washington Wizards (5-6). On JJ Redick’s podcast, “The Old Man & The Three,” Beal talked about why he’s remained with the team.
The Lakers are on a four-game losing streak after losing 114-101 to the LA Clippers on Wednesday night. James led the Lakers in scoring with 30 points, including 4-for-9 shooting from downtown.
Beal, on the other hand, has been doing his best with the Wizards. In the nine games he’s played this season, Beal is averaging 21.6 points, 5.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds while shooting for 52.1%, including 32.5% from deep.
The Lakers will play against the Sacramento Kings (4-6) on Friday night, looking to bounce back.

The LA Lakers’ offense is one of the worst in the league. It’s clear they need shooters, not just to win, but to have a decent offensive system. Floor spacing is a huge thing in the NBA today. This isn’t the 1980s or the 1990s, where a team can clog the paint and rely on shooting two-pointers.
Non-shooting players try to play outside of their comfort zones. Patrick Beverley and Russell Westbrook have both been missing badly from the perimeter. They can’t fool defenses, either. Opposing teams know both players aren’t reliable, so they just dare them to shoot.
The only ones who are making decent shots from deep are Troy Brown Jr., Austin Reaves and Matt Ryan. All three are shooting above 30% from beyond the arc.
For the Lakers to turn things around, they’ll have to look for a reliable shooter in the trade market. The question is, will they be willing to add additional assets in their trade?
