Lakers Reportedly Back On The Buddy Hield Train
Last summer, the Lakers were reportedly trying to go out and get Buddy Hield from the Sacramento Kings. Hield is one of the best three-point shooters in the league and his talents are what the Lakers desperately needed. In the end, the Lakers decided to pursue Russell Westbrook instead, which turned out to be a massive mistake as Russ was the complete opposite of a sharpshooter.
Hield was eventually traded to the Indiana Pacers in the middle of the season, and while he played well with the team, it is clear that the Pacers are a team in the midst of a rebuild, which doesn’t exactly align with Hield’s goals of making the playoffs and going on a deep run.
