Report: Lakers and Thunder Agree to a Trade

The NBA's trade moratorium will be lifted on Monday and according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder should have a deal to announce. The trade sees the Lakers sending veteran Danny Green and the 28th pick at Wednesday's draft, to the Thunder for a return including point-guard Dennis Schroder.

The move gives the Lakers a combo guard in Schroder, who is an above average defender and someone can score in bunches. Schroder started only two games for the Thunder last season, meanwhile averaged 18.9 points per game, hitting threes at a 38.% clip. This will be his final year of his current contract, paying the German-born Schroder, $15.5 million next season.  

Look for Green to be flipped or bought-out by the rebuilding Thunder, as it's becoming more and more clear, Chris Paul will be traded this offseason. Many thought the Lakers would be the landing spot for Paul, turns out that's not the case at all.

It appears the Lakers and Thunder will be kicking things off in what's expected to be a busy week of moves in the NBA.

Buckle up, and enjoy.
