It would be incredibly shocking if the Los Angeles Lakers decided not to make a deal given how badly they have performed to date in the season. And it will probably occur sooner rather than later, according to probability. If the Lakers want a chance at the playoffs, they can't afford to fall too far behind in the standings.
According to a recent rumour, the Lakers are expected to finally contact the Indiana Pacers to make a mid-season trade in which they would acquire Myles Turner and Buddy Hield. This is a deal that the Lakers have been linked to since the offseason. There is no guarantee that this decision will result in everything being fixed for Los Angeles, even if the Lakers eventually return to this agreement. It's a true game of chance, and the Lakers may only get one more opportunity to surround LeBron James with a championship team before he retires.
