The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to make a splash.
According to Woj, the Lakers are interested in acquriing Suns forward Trevor Ariza in a three-team deal that would involve Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
The teams have been working to reach an agreement with a third team that would take on Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as part of a potentially larger deal, league sources said. No trade can be completed officially until Saturday, when players like Ariza, who were signed in summer free agency, become eligible to be traded.
The biggest holdup in this deal is in Pope's contract, he has a de facto no-trade clause which means that he will have a say in where he wants to be traded to. Pope has averaged 8.5 points per game and is shooting over 30% from beyond the arc.
