Rumor Mill: Lakers Interested in Steve Blake, Raymond Felton Trade?

With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, the potential trades are getting increasingly numerous. The Lakers, who have been actively shopping since December, have been the focal point of many of these trade rumors.

The latest rumor comes from CBS Sports’ Ken Berger, who has reported that the Lakers might be interested in Portland Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton.

Rival executives believe the Blazers are interested in exploring a swap of Felton to the Lakers for Steve Blake, with L.A. sending another piece to make the salaries match and compensate the Blazers for getting the better player and future cost savings in the deal.

Blake, who played with the Trail Blazers from 2007-10, is averaging 5.6 points and 3.5 assists for the Lakers this season. Felton, on the other hand, is averaging 10.3 points and 6.2 assists for Portland.

However, the additional player that the Lakers would have to send along with Blake is where things might get tricky. The only players currently on the roster that would solve the potential cap issues are Luke Walton and Josh McRoberts, one of which would be included to make up for the difference in salary between Felton and Blake.

Felton has faced plenty of criticism from the Portland fans and media this season, and even lost his starting position to Jamal Crawford.

    Sometimes, bench players like Walton does something more on practice games rather than the official games.
    It’s makes the 1st and 2nd units better their games when playing with the third unit during practice sessions. Players like Luke makes it hard for the first 5 to execute plays drawn by the coaches. During practice, these so-called ‘waste of money players’ get their money’s worth.

    Not much of a upgrade, we should try to get PG from Rocket. Dragic is good pg i sure rocket won’t ask too much for him since lowry is clearly their franchise player now.
