The Lakers have been looking for a point guard to pair up with Kobe Bryant all season long.
Now, it seems one of the better young point guards in the league is on the market.
Sports Illustrated is reporting that Brandon Jennings can be had in a trade for the right price.
The Bucks have Jennings under contract for two more seasons after this one, but might consider moving him before it become obvious that he won't be there long-term.
Jennings recently stated that he would eventually consider going to a different city.
I'm going to keep my options open, knowing that the time is coming up. I'm doing my homework on big-market teams.
Milwaukee may look to trade Jennings early, and avoid a situation like the Magic are in right now with Dwight Howard.
Los Angeles certainly wouldn't be the only suitors for Jennings, but they might be considered one of the favorites to land the point guard.
Jennings was selected 10th overall by the Bucks in the 2009 NBA Draft.
The Bucks have reportedly been trying to trade Andrew Bogut, but haven't been able to get equal value for him. Milwaukee would like to unload either Stephen Jackson or Drew Gooden in any potential trade.
The most likely way the Lakers could land Jennings is if the Bucks are willing to take back less value in order to get rid of some bad contracts.
It is unlikely that Los Angeles would be willing to part with Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol for the third-year player.
