The Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed in principle on a deal that would send the 28th overall pick and Danny Green to Oklahoma City and Dennis Schroder to Los Angeles, according to Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski. While the deal hasn’t officially been processed yet, it will be able to go through on Monday afternoon.
Schroder, the 27 year old guard who started his career out in Atlanta before being traded to Oklahoma City in the three-team Carmelo Anthony trade. He would add more scoring and overall offense to Los Angeles’ starting lineup, but this addition makes Lakers fans question Rajon Rondo’s future with the team.
The Thunder will be the fifth team that Danny Green has played for, the most recent teams being the Lakers and the Raptors before them. Oklahoma City will also most likely acquire the 28th overall pick which, along with the Nuggets’ pick at number 25, will be their second of two first round picks in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Again, this trade is not official yet because teams are not allowed to process trades until noon on Monday, 11/16. However, the Lakers and the Thunder are in very advanced talks and this trade seems to be as good as done.
