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

Anthony Davis was working up a sweat on the court with his Lakers teammates - it just wasn't in the game. Latest on his comeback trail, plus a note on Kendrick Nunn: ocregister.com/2022/01/23/ant… - 11:32 PM

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

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
