Lakers Rumors: L.A. Looking To Trade #27 Draft Pick To Move Up?

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently assessing all potential options when it comes to their second pick (#27) in the 2015 NBA Draft, including trading up in hopes of perhaps landing a coveted wing player somewhere farther up the board.

Here's Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders with the report:

League sources say the Lakers are interested in trading this pick if only to avoid the guaranteed salary associated with it. There has also been talk of bundling this pick with other assets and moving up, so this selection is clearly in flux.

Rumors have been swirling as of late that the Lakers are trying to offload sixth man Nick Young via trade, so it's possible that they could consider a package deal including Young in order to move up the draft board.

However, nothing is set in stone as we inch closer to Thursday's NBA Draft festivities.
