NBA Rumors: Knicks, Lakers, and Raptors Discussing 3-Way Deal

Today's NBA Trade Deadline is just hours away as teams have until just 3:00 PM EST today to make deals with other teams before the end of this season.  Otherwise, the earliest team will be able to trade with each other will be following the conclusion of the NBA playoffs.  With that in mind, today is expected to be hectic, especially as only a handful of moves have been made in the days leading up to the deadline and rumors are surrounding some of the leagues' top players which could make for one of the most memorable trade deadlines of all time.

One of the first deals of the day could be a 3-way deal involving the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, and Toronto Raptors.  This morning it was reported by Silver Screen & Roll that the Lakers are discussing a potential deal that lands them some much-needed help for the struggling team. 

In the proposed deal, the Lakers would acquire Cam Reddish and Alec Burks, the Knicks would receive Goran Dragic and draft picks, and the Raptors would receive Talen Horton-Tucker and Nerlens Noel.  

The deal makes sense for all three teams as the Raptors would be acquiring two rotation players for someone who doesn't even travel with the team in Dragic, the Lakers receive some much-needed help on the wing, and the Knicks move a couple of players who don't fit in their long-term plans.

Stay tuned to for the latest regarding the NBA Trade Deadline.
