Lakers Rumors: Eric Bledsoe Headed To Los Angeles In Blockbuster Trade?

The Los Angeles Lakers have filled out the roster with a lot of familiar faces from last season’s squad. Although it appears the team might be done making moves, an intriguing trade rumor has surfaced.

According to Jon Bloom of Arizona Sports 98.7, Eric Bledsoe could be headed to the Lakers in a blockbuster trade:

As of right now, the Lakers already have three point guards on the roster with Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, and rookie Jordan Clarkson. Kendall Marshall was recently waived and could’ve been re-signed if he cleared waivers, but the Milwaukee Bucks claimed him.

With the Lakers not confident in Nash’s ability to stay healthy for an entire season, the team wants security at the point guard position. Bledsoe would provide that, but he’d come at a hefty price.

As Bloom suggests, the Lakers would be giving up Julius Randle in the deal along with Jordan Hill. If that is what happens, the team will have a surplus of guards and will lose two of their best frontcourt players.

Recently, it was reported that the Phoenix Suns were far apart on a new deal with Bledsoe. The 24-year-old was looking for a five-year deal worth $80 million. It doesn’t appear that the Suns are willing to pay that amount, especially with two capable point guards already on the roster in Goran Dragic and the recently signed Isaiah Thomas.

The Lakers have been rumored to be interested in Bledsoe for quite some time, but with three floor generals already on the team, it does seem unlikely that they’d attempt to make this deal.
