While the situation can change from now to Thursday, the Lakers should shift their attention to getting more three-point shooters.
"[KCP] is available and has been floated out there for some spots, Windhorst said on ESPN Radio, via Bryan Kalbrosky of Hoops Hype". "Now I'm not saying this deal is going to get done, but one place they have talked to is Chicago for Jabari Parker". "I've been working to get my finger back healthy". The Bulls really like Caldwell-Pope... Jabari Parker could be a Laker within the next few days. Parker-who was expected to be a star in Chicago-took a lesser role with the Bulls after an internal conflict based around minutes. He was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the second overall pick in 2014. Parker is still averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game on the season. He's making $20 million this season and has a team option worth $20 million for next season. There is talk the Bulls and Parker could agree to a buyout on his contract. He's still only shooting 32 percent on 3-pointers and there remain questions about his quickness guarding players on the perimeter. As the Lakers made their godfather offer, it appears the Pelicans were never serious about trading Davis to his preferred destination.
An Instagram comment from Bleacher Report listed out a Lakers proposal that included Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and two first-round picks for Davis.
