Multiple outlets are reporting that the Lakers are open to trading the 4th pick for an "established veteran" player. Obviously there would be other players involved, but the meat of a deal with the Grizzlies would likely be Lonzo Ball and the no. 4 pick for MC11. The Lakers do it because they get to upgrade at PG by adding an established vet to play with Lebron and they get to keep Ingram, Kuzma, Hart, etc... The Grizzlies parlay Mike into a top 5 pick accelerating the rebuild. If you are receiving Lonzo back in a deal for Mike, do you consider drafting RJ Barrett at 2 and a player like Culver/Reddish at 4? Lonzo, Culver, RJ Barrett and JJJ would be a really exciting young core. Add Jonas and you have 1-5 all in their 20's. Nice start to a rebuild. Just my two cents.
