LaVine to the Lakers?
It appears Zach LaVine will end up in Los Angeles eventually, with The Athletic reporting that “all signs” point to the Lakers and the Chicago Bulls getting a deal done before the trade deadline. The 28-year-old guard has been sidelined since Nov. 28 with a foot injury.
Lakers also interested in Murray
The Lakers have also expressed interest in Atlanta Hawks guard Dejounte Murray, according to The Athletic. Murray, who was voted an All-Star in 2022, is expected to be available at the trade deadline, according to Marc Stein.
Cavs sticking with Spida
Despite losing Darius Garland and Evan Mobley to injuries for at least the next six weeks, the Cleveland Cavaliers have no intention of moving on from their core players, including Donovan Mitchell, according to Yahoo Sports. Mitchell can opt out of his current contract in 2025.
The Boston Celtics are interested in a reunion with Kelly Olynyk, according to Marc Stein. Olynkyk spent the first four years of his NBA career with the Celtics. He’s currently on the Utah Jazz.
Cavs exporting options with Rubio

The New Orleans Pelicans are among the “contenders” interested in trading for Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen, according to Yahoo Sports. Allen, who’s started 22 games for the Cavs this season, signed a five-year, $100 million contract with Cleveland in 2021.
