As for the Lakers, they seem to be still open to trading options with Jordan Clarkson. That is not all in the NBA trade rumors, as the New York Knicks are also pursuing a trade for power forward Carmelo Anthony.

With three top teams trying to give away some of their star players, six teams have reportedly approached the Cavaliers in a trade deal for Kyrie Irving. The Cavs will give up Irving if they get what they want in return. But the Lakers trading Clarkson is still a question that is unanswered.

Pacers involved with the Lakers for Clarkson and Randle?

The Lakers have tried to acquire Paul George from the Indiana Pacers. For some reason, they did not strike a deal. It seems that both teams are back again to pursue a trade. Despite George's interest in landing with Los Angeles, he ended up being traded with to Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunders acquired Paul George in a deal for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Indiana trading George to the Thunders was a shocking and surprising move. Now that the Lakers have lost the option of George, they seem to be interested in some of the Pacers stars. Letting go of Clarkson and Randle at the same time is not an easy choice for Los Angles. They need to make sure to get the perfect replacement from the Pacers.

If the rumors are said to be true, then the Lakers might just ship Clarkson or Randle to the Indiana Pacers.

The idea of a trade is believed to be established by both teams. It also depends on who will the Lakers need in return for their two NBA stars. The Pacers have given up a potential player like George and since the Lakers could not strike a deal, now their chances appear to be stronger for a trade.
