The Lakers are trying to find help, though their option appear limited. According to people with knowledge of the situation, the team is shopping 21-year-old Talen Horton-Tucker in trade discussions. Rival general managers believe the Lakers value Horton-Tucker, but they lack the mid-range contracts needed to put together a deal to upgrade their roster and understand no significant trade is getting made without him.

Lakers bench:
Stanley Johnson: +18
Malik Monk: +17
Talen Horton-Tucker: +15
Austin Reaves: +13
I think you could make credible cases for any of those four as full-time starters. They’ve all been terrific over the past few weeks. – 1:08 AM

Jordan Schultz: Talen Horton-Tucker has become a trade target of as many as seven teams, league sources say. It will take “a lot” to get him though, I’m told. #Lakers, who really value THT, are hesitant. He just turned 21 and is averaging a career-best 11 PPG, 5 RPG and 3 assists. -via Twitter @Schultz_Report / December 13, 2021
