Lakers Rumors: L.a. Exploring Trades For Nick Young, Robert Sacre, Ryan Kelly

With free agency in process, the Los Angeles Lakers suffered a disastrous start, but were able to trade for Roy Hibbert. In addition to Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon Bass have agreed to sign with the storied franchise.

As the Lakers work on cap space for these three players, they are exploring trade options for Nick Young according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

As the Lakers work to clear cap space to sign free agents and absorb Hibbert’s contract, Nick Young is a strong candidate to be unloaded, sources told Yahoo Sports.

In addition, Robert Sacre and Ryan Kelly could be included in the Pacers trade for Hibbert, via Spears:

The Lakers are exploring trades for Young, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre. Sacre and/or Kelly are possibilities to go to Pacers, sources said.

After suffering the worst win percentage in franchise history, the Lakers are determined to improve their roster. While there were high hopes of landing LaMarcus Aldridge or DeAndre Jordan, Hibbert, Williams and Bass are solid additions to a young team.

Heading into the 2015-16 NBA season, the Lakers will have a nice blend of young prospects to go along with veterans. With D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson as the foundation of the future, it will be interesting to see how competitive Los Angeles can be next season.
