With the NBA Draft just days away, the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in trade rumors for Sacramento Kings Center DeMarcus Cousins. Although the Kings ownership have maintained Cousins as untradable, Cousins reportedly asked the team to trade him in May. The latest report has Julius Randle and the No. 2 pick ‘in play’ to land the 24-year-old Cousins in Los Angeles.

While the Lakers have the second overall pick, rumor has it that the Philadelphia 76ers may be looking to trade up for D’Angelo Russell. Philadelphia, who controls the team’s 2016 first-round pick, could help the Lakers future. Los Angeles could walk away with Jahlil Okafor at No. 3 and another asset.
