After James Harden was traded to the Clippers, the Lakers may chase a well-known name

Now at least, the James Harden tale is concluded. Harden was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers for a plethora of assets consisting of veteran salary fillers and alluring draft capital following his third successful trade demand in his turbulent career. Kenyon Martin Jr., Robert Covington, Nicolas Batum, and Marcus Morris Sr. were the players traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Clippers obtained Filip Petrusev, P.J. Tucker, and Harden in exchange. Los Angeles was the team most committed to pursuing Harden, despite his dissatisfaction in Philadelphia, since they were honest enough with themselves that their squad was insufficient to win the championship.

The 76ers needed to clear a roster slot in order to finalize the transaction because the Clippers forfeited four players. As a result, the front management chose to waive Danny Green, who was just acquired. Green is still a trustworthy 3-and-D wing who can play a small part for a team that is figҺting for a title. The Los Angeles Lakers are one team that could use Green because they have an open roster place.

Green was traded before the 2020–21 season even got underway, despite having won a chip with the Lakers. If Green with the purple and gold ends up back in Los Angeles, it will be his second tour of service. Green and LeBron James are said to have a great rapport.

At this early point in the season, the Lakers have a 3-2 record, which is outstanding given that they have had injuries throughout the squad. Due to an unrelated ιnjury, Jarred Vanderbilt, who was expected to start for Los Angeles, has not participated in any games this season. Taurean Prince, Jalen Hood-Schifino, Rui Hachimura, and Gabe Vincent were all absent from the Lakers’ exciting victory over the Clippers on Wednesday.

Darvin Ham, the head coach, only used eight players in his rotation at one point, and he rotated three big me𝚗 together. The Lakers managed to defeat the Clippers in overtime, but their current formula is unsustainable in the long run. The addition of Danny Green, a catch-and-shoot wing who can capitalize on advantages provided by Anthony Davis, Austin Reaves, and James, would be beneficial to them.
