Lakers rumors: proposed LA Furkan Korkmaz commercial land for Kendrick Nunn


2022-23 Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers are in desperate need of bowlers around All-Stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis and Sean Daveney familiar with has a business idea for the Philadelphia 76ers.

In an October 20 article titled “Proposed Deals in the NBA to Fill Main Roster Holes for the Celtics, Heat and More,” Daveney suggested Lakers trade guard Kendrick Noon to the Sixers in exchange for substitute Vorkan Korkmaz.

“Look, Korkmaz isn’t going to save the Lakers season in any way,” Devine wrote. “But the truth is, if the Lakers want to do something to address their shooting problems without coughing, Nunn is the only chip they have — and not particularly valuable at that. Korkmaz has been the ups and downs of his NBA career from the 3-point arc, Including just 28.9% in 3 seconds last year, but he’s shot 35.4% in his career. It’s worth a try, so to speak.”

Korkmaz has a height of 6 feet 7 feet and is one of the best shooters in his position. it’s a Career 35.4% shooter from behind the bow. The Istanbul native’s career average is 7.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists while shooting 40.4% from the field and 76.9% from the free throw line.

Korkmaz She signed a three-year contract worth $15 million With The Sixers in August 2021. He’s making $5 million this season. Since Nunn Earned $5.3 million in 2022-23the Lakers can exchange the guard to the Sixers for Korkmaz directly under CBA rules.

West Exec: Lakers ‘hurt to shoot’

A Western Conference executive who spoke to Deveney said the Lakers were “being hurt by the shooting.” Los Angeles Shooting only 21.2% from behind the bow As a team during the first three matches of the season. Purple and golden color 0-3.

“The roster is better than it was last year, it’s smaller and sportier,” said Devine’s CEO. “But there are still a lot of places that don’t make sense. They get hurt by shooting. We knew that comes in the year, and they didn’t pay enough attention to that because they were adding people. They don’t have a real answer up front either. Do you want to play Davis in 5? Is that the best thing for him? They’ve got some really good spare big players but they haven’t really got a key player worthy of playing there.”

Korkmaz will not make contenders for the Lakers title. However, he can help them become more dynamic in attack because he can make 3 throws. The 25-year-old recorded a career high of 40.2% from behind the arc during the 2019-20 season. Changing the scenery and playing with an elite passerby can help James Korkmaz rediscover his outer touch.

Nunn wasn’t good for the Lakers

Nunn missed all last season due to a bruise in his right knee. The Chicago native struggled his way back, Only 26.3% from the field and 23.1% from outside the arc.

The last time Noon played before this season was in 2020-21. He averaged 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.6 assists for the Heat while shooting 38.1% from a 3-point range. The Lakers need him to get back into shape. Otherwise, Nunn is consumable.

Nunn is mentioned in many of Russell Westbrook’s business proposals due to his tradable salary. Once Dennis Schroeder returns from thumb surgery, Nunn and Westbrook can be traded together.
