The Los Angeles Lakers want to bring enough support for LeBron James and Anthony Davis to shine once again in the 2020-21 campaign. On this occasion, faced with their NBA title defense, forming a “Big Three” seems like the ideal option to reaffirm their candidate status.
Here are the four possible deluxe Lakers trios for the 2020-21 season.
Derrick Rose has been very consistent over the past two seasons despite only recording 26 minutes per game, but just that can add value to the Lakers. His skill as a game builder would be more than ideal so James can focus on scoring and Davis can develop his game in the best possible way.
Oladipo proved to be one of the best point guards a couple of seasons ago and, if in good health, he would have been a key player in the Lakers. His incisive presence would open up spaces, especially for Davis, since his rivals would fundamentally take care of the offensive risk that LeBron and Oladipo entail.
A possible trade for DeRozan would give the Lakers only the offensive support that LeBron and Davis require, being one of the NBA’s most consistent scorers. There would be three luxury options for Californians, which would also give them a chance to rest some of their pieces.
Chris Paul is one of the players the Lakers are most interested in a possible change, and that is that they would become by far the best candidates for the title. LeBron would leave a lot of responsibility building play and Davis would have another ideal partner.
