The Los Angeles Lakers have not been spectators at this year’s trade deadline. As of moments ago they were still trying to see what perimeter players were available in exchange for some of the guys at the end of their bench, like Steve Blake, Darius Morris, Devin Ebanks and Chris Duhon. According to sources the Lakers made a push for Cleveland Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson, but were not able to put together a deal to Cleveland’s liking.
There is still the possibility that the Lakers make a minor move, trading one of the above players for a second-round pick in order to put them in a situation where they can play more while freeing up a roster spot and saving some money.
