There haven't been many substantial Los Angeles Lakers trade rumors yet leading up to the February 18 midseason deadline.

However, one of the most attention-grabbing theories floated recently has actually concerned the offseason rather than the present, with Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports Radio’s The Herd speculating that L.A. would be willing to swap its young core for established stars.
