With NBA trade rumors making headlines all over, everyone is waiting to see which teams will trade big before the next season. One of the major players who could be in the market this off-season is Chris Paul. The 35-year-old veteran has proven his value this season by leading the OKC Thunder to the playoffs.

One of the teams that could potentially trade for Chris Paul is the LA Lakers. Let us take a look at these NBA trade rumors.


Will the LA Lakers offer a slew of players for Chris Paul?

One of the major NBA trade rumors in the air right now is about the future of Chris Paul, and one possible destination for Chris Paul could be the LA Lakers. We could potentially see the LA Lakers trade some of their younger players such as Kyle Kuzma, Alex Caruso, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

We can also expect some LA Lakers veterans such as JaVale McGee or Danny Green to be on the trading block this off-season if Chris Paul is up for grabs.

Chris Paul is regarded as one of the greatest point guards of the modern era and is known for his intelligent play and leadership qualities. While many had written him off due to his age, he has proven his critics wrong with a stellar season where he averaged 17.6 points and 6.7 assists a game and led the Thunder to the playoffs.

Teamed up with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Chris Paul could very well be part of a Championship-winning team next season. Apart from Chris Paul, we have also heard rumors of another friend of LeBron James - Carmelo Anthony - potentially joining the LA Lakers.
