The Los Angeles Lakers were able to finally pull off their first win of the season on Sunday night, securing an impressive victory against the Denver Nuggets.
But that doesn’t change the fact that the team is only 1-5 now and still has one of the worst records in the entire NBA.
That is leading many to still talk about possible trades the front office could make.
Myles Turner says the Lakers should consider trading the 2 1st round picks to the Pacers for him and Buddy Hield
“If I’m the Lakers, I take a very hard look at this with the position that you're in. I know what I can provide for a team.”

A proposed package sending Turner and Hield to LA has been spoken about for some time but it’s been gaining steam even more lately after LA’s abysmal start to the season.
Now, none other than Turner himself is giving his two cents about the situation.
Speaking on The Woj Pod, Turner opened up about a trade that would send him west to the Lakers.
“If I’m the Lakers, I take a very hard look at this with the position that you’re in. I know what I can provide for a team.”
That certainly sounds like someone who is ready to pack his bags and head to Los Angeles.
Is this trade only a matter of time?
Myles On The Move
There is a good chance that LA will make a big trade soon, even with the team finally winning a game and Russell Westbrook looking much better (for at least the last two games).
Therefore, Turner could in fact get his wish and go to the Lakers.
On paper, Turner would solve a lot of LA’s problems with his size, defense, and his ability to space the floor and shoot effectively too.
But the Lakers have shown that they can have a lot of problems, even when they also have a lot of talent.
