NBA trade is about to officially conclude on February 23. Few days prior to the deadline, various reports say the Los Angeles Lakers will most likely trade Lou Williams, Luol Deng, and Nick Young.
The team's current standing of 19-37 puts them in the bottom three. This record is enough basis for head coach Luke Walton to determine the direction of the team.
As the trading season gets officially near, trade negotiations are most likely being finalized too. Multiple reports are now circulating various speculations for the potential trade that the L.A. Lakers will buy out.
L.A. Lakers' sixth-man Lou Williams is one of the hottest commodities of the team. He is averaging 18.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals in just about 24.2 minutes.

Records also show that Lou Williams has 44 percent shooting and 38.1 percent three-point range. The 11-year veteran is actually available for trade this season. Teams who badly need help from a good-scoring point guard may opt to grab him quickly.
Reports now say that Lou Williams has been shopped. HoopsHype said that a general manager has confirmed that the team has already released Lou Williams. It was also mentioned that the veteran is expected to transfer even before the Feb. 23 trade deadline.
Aside from Lou Williams, the team is also reportedly eyeing to trade another player. The publication also mentioned that the Los Angeles Lakers is also planning to trade Nick Young.
Meanwhile, rumors are also spreading that NBA All-Star Luol Deng will most likely be traded too. Reports predict that the L.A. Lakers might probably swap the All-Star player to grab Rudy Gay from Sacramento Kings, the Inquisitr has noted.
Interestingly, trade rumors have been very bold to predict only the potential trade of the veteran players of the Los Angeles Lakers. It seems that the franchise is firm with their plan to keep their young and promising players like Julius Randle, D'Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram.
