Lakers Trade Rumors: Nets, Lakers talking deal to send Jordan Hill to Brooklyn

The NBA trade deadline is only days away and the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be a team that could be very active. On Mon. Feb. 17, another Lakers trade rumor surfaced about Jordan Hill potentially heading to the Brooklyn Nets in a deal before the deadline according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

The Los Angeles Lakers have had discussions on a deal to send forward Jordan Hill to the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Over the past few months, Pau Gasol has been the one name mentioned in Lakers trade rumors with the team finally ready to part ways with the veteran. Although Gasol may still be traded elsewhere, Hill also appears to be on the block.

Apparently, Hill hasn't felt comfortable in head coach Mike D'Antoni's system. D'Antoni loves players that are able to stretch the floor at every single position and Hill has suffered in his system as a result of being able to stretch the floor like rookie Ryan Kelly.

With Hill set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, the veteran forward may look elsewhere in free agency. That being said, the Lakers looking for a trade partner isn't surprising as they may see him walk this summer for nothing in return.

Unfortunately, the Lakers won't receive anything in return for Hill in a deal with the Nets. Brooklyn will simply absorb Hill's contract with $3.5 million remaining on his deal.
