Lakers want veteran point guard, have interest in Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook
According to sources, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have been on the hunt for veteran point guard, and [Chris] Paul is on the list.
There have also been talks about Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook being a potential candidate to move back home to Los Angeles in a sign-and-trade deal that could include free agent point guard Dennis Schroder, forward Kyle Kuzma and guard Talen Horton-Tucker, sources said.

ANALYSIS: These would both be high-profile moves that could land a big name alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis in L.A.
Of course, neither the teams nor the players in question have demonstrated any desire for a trade yet. Paul is less than a day removed from losing in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and holds a $44.2 million player option for 2021-22.
