The Los Angeles Lakers added some much-needed shooting on Monday via a trade with the Wizards.
Per ESPN NBA Insider Adrian WojnarowskiThe Lakers added forward Rui Hachimura in a deal that sent Kendrick Nunn and several second round picks to Washington.
The NBA world reacted to the deal on social media.
One user said, “WTF! The Lakers just won this trade.”
A fan replied, “Lakeer is back to cooking.” “The league is over.”
“We finally did something,” cried another.
“Obs for the Lakers to win the NBA Championship… Before Hachimura trade: +3300, After Hachimura trade: +3300,” tweeted Odds Shark.
One New York fan commented, “The Kappa trade could be problematic for the Knicks. OB and Cam both undervalued even more. Thanks to Lyons & Thibbs for the great development and management of the property.”
“The first real move of the NBA trade season…”
“Great value,” said another user. “Given 2 of Washington’s 2 back. And kept 1 for any other trades this time frame to help protect your first one. OK.”
Does this move the needle of the Lakers?
