NBA'S newest season is fast approaching and with it comes the many trade rumors that surround the NBA's finest players. One of it is the trade that will affect the Lakers team in hopes of redeeming its former glory.
One of the most popular trade rumors that circulate today is between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Milwaukee Bucks. According to NBA Trade Rumors, it is possible that a trade between D'Angelo Russell for the Bucks, Greg Monroe and Jabari Parker will happen.
Is the Trade Possible?
As of now, NBA trade rumors are subject to further speculations as there are some that do not stand on the credible ground to even make it possible. Unfortunately, this Russel to the Bucks trade rumor belongs to those kinds of rumors.
This is a highly improbable trade due to the NBA trading and salary cap restrictions. Monroe together with Parker will earn a combined $22.5 million this upcoming 2016 to 2017 season, while Russell will earn $5.3 million in the new season as he is still in his second year as a rookie.
The Similarities between Jabari Parker and D'Angelo Russell
Jabari Parker can be compared to that of D'Angelo Russell as he was also a second overall draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Jabari Parker, now 21 years old, still is trying its best to get the spotlight.
The trade between the Lakers and the Bucks can easily be thrown into the pit of improbable gossips. However, one should know that the season hasn't started yet, which is why there are a lot of things that can still happen.
Whichever the case may be, the NBA will be back to grace our screens by early November.
