Teams not biting on Laker offers involving Kendrick Nunn, Talen Horton-Tucker




 

Having said that, the Lakers, who are sitting at 23-24 and in eighth place in the West, need to shake up this roster. They're calling teams offering a future first, Kendrick Nunn, and Talen Horton-Tucker, who has underwhelmed this season, and no one is biting yet.

This is a great read from @Kevin O'Connor. It accurately describes the trade value of Talen Horton-Tucker, how a Russell Westbrook-John Wall trade would work and why Eric Gordon is the "NBA Trade Deadline Name to Watch"

Why do Lakers fans seem to believe that Talen Horton-Tucker is a valuable trade chip who could net them anything of great value let alone Jerami Grant? What am I missing?
Is Talen, with his 25% 3-pt shooting, a hidden gem or is this all straight delusion? - 12:55 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Spoelstra on Kendrick Nunn and what LAL have been missing:
"He has that scoring punch, he can do it at all three levels. He ignitable. He can make plays off the dribble."
Added that it's quite a "bummer" that his knee has kept him off the floor all season. - 4:28 PM

I just want the trade deadline to pass so I don't have to read "The Rockets would do it for Talen Horton-Tucker" ever again. - 3:21 PM

More on this storyline

That 2027 first is clearly the most valuable trade asset that the Lakers currently possess. The Lakers have tried, with no luck yet, to package that pick with Talen Horton-Tucker and Kendrick Nunn in an attempt to acquire Jerami Grant from Detroit. -via marcstein.substack.com / January 21, 2022
