Lakers Seeking Possible Sign-and-Trade Deal for Arron Afflalo

Despite the fact that this free agent class isn’t nearly as extravagant as the one last season or the one everyone is anticipating next season, due to the lockout this new batch of free agents has received a high amount of publicity in a short amount of time.

One of the bigger names soon to be on the market is Denver Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo. Now, the Lakers have no way to sign Afflalo straight-up due to their financial limitations this off-season, but it’s being reported that they’re still looking into the possibility of adding the former UCLA Bruin to their roster.

Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that of the numerous teams to express interest in Afflalo, the Los Angeles Lakers are indeed one of them. The Lakers, along with their Christmas Day opponents the Chicago Bulls, are two teams that are potentially seeking sign-and-trade deals with the Nuggets to acquire Afflalo.

“Sources told ESPN.com that the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, despite possessing no cap space to bid for the 26-year-old swingman, will continue to press the Nuggets to see if they’re amenable to sign-and-trade discussions.”

Afflalo could provide some much needed energy and perimeter shooting to a Lakers team that lacked both last season. However, it’s clear that the Lakers are looking for a reserve guard to play a limited role behind Kobe Bryant. Afflalo is reaching the point in his career where he will be expecting to compete for a starting position, and in Los Angeles that’s not going to happen.

Still, there’s no question that Afflalo is turning into a very serviceable NBA player, and should make a positive impact wherever he ends up.

    Sign him & Delonte West. Get rid of Blake & don’t resign Brown.

  • CJPunk15

    All day, no to the previous comment about West. That thug isn’t worth the trouble and has a history of not staying within an offense and thats the last thing we need is a PG playing recklessly. Afflalo good deal for the right price and re sign Shannon to be a energy/athletic guy coming off the bench. Or just make the deal Bynum and somebody for CP3!! In no way do u trade Gasol in any deal!

  • Syd

    Jon be realistic don’t be dumb we are not getting rid of anyone at this point except if a trade for paul or Howard comes into play

  • jon

    Blake sucks. Brown is good in season but doesnt show up in the playoffs.

  • AT

    CP & Dwight Howard now is the time

  • chris

    Plz lakers have nobody worthy of trading for howard paul or even afflalo. U really think new orleans or orlnado r gona give up their franchise players for over the hill players like gasol artest the fag or odom? Or the nut case and injury prone bynum?? Hell no. This is all media tryn to stir a buzz but nothing will happen. Now the bulls have the assests to get howard n tha mite be wat jus happens. Bamm!

    • G

      Not if your an owner facing those guys walking away leaving you with nothing….they’ll want to trade for Bynum Odom Gasol…you sound like a child anyway ” lamar the fag lulz” I doubt you understand the inner workings of big business

  • Timothy

    lol you can tell chris doesn’t fully understand the nba and their thought process. People also tend to forget that pau gasol is not just a good player, hes a GREAT player. And odom is a good addition to have on any team
