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...

One of which included herself, Sophie Turner, and Chopra's hairstylist's daughter as they played in the snow together. He also shared a photo of everyone on the trip hanging out in the cold with "LIII Super Bowl" written in the snow.

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.
