Lakers discussing trade for Klay ThompsonBasketball may be over, but the real off-court fun is about to begin, with the NBA Draft coming this Thursday, and free agent negotiations and then signings starting in July. And some fun reports of trade discussions are starting to materialize.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers are in talks to acquire Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson in exchange for the seventh overall pick in next week’s draft. Here's the report:

The deal would be part of a larger three-way trade that sends Minnesota All-Star power forward Kevin Love to the Warriors. The Lakers are interested but the deal has been put on hold because of a difference in opinion within the Warriors’ organization whether or not to keep Thompson while trying to obtain Love.

Thompson, 24, averaged 18.4 points last season for the Warriors and became one of the league’s most potent three-point shooters. He is under contract for $4.5 million next season before becoming a restricted free agent.

Thompson increased his scoring average by almost two points last season and improved his shooting percentage from 42.2% to 44.4%. He made 41.7% of his three-point attempts last season.
