The latest trade rumor involves the Lakers acquiring shooting guard Klay Thompson from the Golden State Warriors for the seventh pick, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

The Lakers have been in discussions to acquire Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson for the seventh pick in next week’s draft, The Times has learned.

Over the last few days, Kevin Love has been the biggest name mentioned in trade rumors with talks of the Warriors sending Thompson and David Lee to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for the superstar and other pieces. The deal seemed to be near completion with Klay’s father, Mychal, leaking the rumor about the trade talks on the radio recently.

If Thompson does head to Los Angeles, it would be part of a three-team trade that ultimately sends Love to Oakland, according to Bresnahan:

The deal would be part of a larger three-way trade that sends Minnesota All-Star Kevin Love to the Warriors. The Lakers are interested but the deal has been put on hold because of a difference in opinion within the Warriors’ organization whether or not to keep Thompson while trying to obtain Love.

Although reports have surfaced about the Lakers leaning toward keeping the pick, acquiring Thompson would be a giant leap in the right direction. Thompson has been linked to the Lakers in the past, but nothing has come to fruition.

Heading to Los Angeles rather than Minnesota would definitely be a favorable situation for Thompson. Even though the Lakers are at the beginning of a rebuilding process, the sharpshooter would be a vital piece to the championship puzzle moving forward.
