Rumor Mill: Lakers Trying to Land Michael Beasley in Three-Team Deal

With the NBA trading deadline less than 24 hours away, general mangers are scrambling and are trying to figure out ways to make their teams better. Rumors and names will be flying around for the next day and the NBA world will be busy until the deadline passes.

The latest trade rumor involves the Los Angeles Lakers and forward Michael Beasley. It was reported before that Los Angeles turned down a deal that would bring Beasley to L.A., but it seems as though that deal is back up.

According to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.com, the Lakers are working with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Portland Trailblazers in a three team deal that would send Beasley to Los Angeles, Steve Blake to the Blazers and Jamal Crawford to the Wolves.

Still, the Lakers will be looking to add another guard to their lineup and will not be willing to give up a valuable Blake for no point guard in return. Kennedy later went on to say that others players will likely be added to the deal, but those three players are the ones that have surfaced.

If Beasley were to come to the Lakers, Los Angeles would fix one of its weak spots. Beasley would likely move into the starting lineup and offer the team with some nice, young talent.
