Patrick Beverly joins LeBron and the Lakers via Trade

NBA - The Los Angeles Lakers made a bold move this NBA Off-Season after they traded their two young players in exchange for an older Utah Jazz Point Guard Patrick Beverly just last week August 25, 2022.

The Lakers sent the 26 years old Small Forward Stanley Johnson and 21 years old Shooting Guard Talen Horton-Tucker to Utah Jazz via trade and receive 34 years old Point Guard Patrick Beverly.

The Trade must be a little questionable from any Lakers fan or even NBA fans which why the Lakers trade two young players for one older player? Maybe because the older player can give some toughness to the team that the Lakers haven't seen two these young guys?

Patrick Beverly is known for his toughness on defense plus his annoying attitude in the game, which perhaps can help the Lakers every time when Beverly is inside the game?

Aside from that former Laker Talen Horton-Tucker, who once believe that will be the future of the Lakers has made a low impact last season affecting his trade value which has been down significantly unlike the season where the Lakers won the NBA Championship he has been the apple of the eye for some team and wants him via trade? But the Lakers decline it.

Patrick Beverly will be a good addition for the Lakers this season, he will have some minutes into the game, but the Lakers will still rely on LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Russell Westbrook will be a big question this season?

For Talon Horton-Tucker, the guy is still young and perhaps his moments will come like the young players from Lakers that also sent via a trade that blossom in other teams and made an impact for their names.

What did you think of this trade? Did the Los Angeles Lakers make the right move?

LeBron James eligible of 2 - year extension with the Lakers

NBA - Lakers superstar, a 4 - Time league MVP and 4 - Time NBA Champion LeBron James will be entering his 5th season with the Los Angeles Lakers and career 20th season in the upcoming 2022 - 2023 NBA Regular Season.

LeBron James will suit for the Lakers once again in his 5th season with the team, but it probably his last season if the Los Angeles Lakers management will not make a move of extending his contract.

On August 4, 2022, LeBron's contract with the Lakers is now eligible for another 2 - year extension worth around $97.1 million. He has already extended his contract since he join the purple and gold in 2018 and eventually ends or expire, this 2022 - 2023 NBA Season.

If the Lakers and LeBron James agreed for another 2 -year extension LeBron'c contract will extend through 2024 - 2025 NBA Season.

LeBron James is a vital piece of the Lakers roster, he probably the best player in the team today when he's healthy despite the Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook presence with the team.

LeBron can still play at a high level and arguably still can play with younger superstar that he show last season, although he slows a bit but still some analyst and critics level him as a top 5 best player in the league.

In his 4 - years with the Lakers LeBron James delivered 1 - NBA Title in 2020 after a 10 -year drought by the Lakers franchise. They missed the playoffs in his 1st season, won a title in his 2nd season, eliminated in the postseason in his 3rd season and missed the play - in tournament in the 4th season.

Throughout the years LeBron James has been in the NBA for 19th Season, he played his 7th season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, 4- years with the Miami Heat, came back with the Cavs and another 4 - years with the team and joins the Lakers and currently played 4 - years.
