Lakers have 'talked' about deal for Jabari Parker

The Lakers appear to be looking to make multiple roster moves before the February 7 trade deadline.

Los Angeles came into Saturday's matchup with the Warriors with the fourth-worst 3-point shooting percentage in the league (33.7 percent).

The Lakers and Parker have been linked before.

"Caldwell-Pope is available and has been floated out there for some spots". Windhorst also says that the Lakers could have a willing partner in the Bulls due to their affinity for Lakers forward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

The Lakers make 10.2 3-pointers per game which is tied for 20th in the National Basketball Association. One place that they have talked to, now I'm not saying this deal is going to get done, but one place they have talked to is Chicago for Jabari Parker.

Although Caldwell-Pope possesses a full no-trade clause by virtue of signing consecutive one-year contracts, he and his representation - notably the same as LeBron James in the form of Rich Paul and Klutch Sports - were seeking a new home. They have to run it through him. The Lakers would have to put something else in that deal. The Bulls really like Caldwell-Pope...

Kevin Gameiro struck the opener for the visitors, before Daniel Parejo doubled their lead from the penalty spot. The 31-year-old however reduced Barca's deficit with just six minutes to the end of the first half of the game.

While that trade could certainly get done here in the next couple days, ESPN's Brian Windhorst is reporting that the Lakers have another big-name player on their mind.

Though, he'd be an interesting addition for the Lakers.

"Don't be surprised if they do something with Caldwell-Pope to try to boost their roster". He's still only shooting 32 percent on 3-pointers and there remain questions about his quickness guarding players on the perimeter.

Perhaps the Lakers feel the former No. 2 overall pick still has potential and would do well in their organization.

The 23-year-old's deal earns him $20m this season but the Lakers have a $20m team option for the 2019-20 season.
