Knicks, Lakers and Raptors negotiate a possible triple trade

The New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors would be negotiating a possible triple trade in which up to five players would be involved, reported Mike Scotto of the media hoopshype.

New Yorkers would receive Goran Dragic and future draft compensation. For their part, the Lakers would get Alec Burks and Cam Reddish, and the Canadians would add young Talen Horton-Tucker and center Nerlens Noel.

With this movement, he would fulfill what was previously commented from New York. That Tom Thibodeau doesn’t have Cam Reddish, and that they want to part with summer-renewed veterans such as Burks (3 years, $30 million) and Noel (3 years, $32 million).

Instead, the Lakers would get a proven second-unit scorer and a young prospect who came out the back door of Atlanta and hasn’t had a chance to play in the big-apple.

Finally, the Raptors are the ones who risk the most with Horton-Tucker, renewed for 3 seasons and 32 million, and with a Noel who last year was a key piece of Thibs’ defense, and who this year has barely paid off because of of their physical problems.
