The Los Angeles Lakers don’t appear to be working on any major trades as the deadline approaches, but they’re working on a trade nonetheless. It was reported on Tuesday that the Brooklyn Nets were interested in acquiring big man Jordan Hill from the Lakers, and talks have been ongoing since.

Brooklyn is working on a few deals, the biggest of which is acquiring guard Marcus Thronton from the Sacramento Kings, but the deal to acquire Hill won’t be affected by those talks. According to Steve Kyler from Basketball Insiders, the Nets are looking at sending back either a second-round pick or a trade exception to the Lakers for Hill.

It’s unclear how the Lakers feel about this, but given that the trade isn’t done, but we can assume Los Angeles will try to get more before agreeing to a deal. Hill heading to Brooklyn along with possibly Marcus Thornton in a separate deal, means that the Nets are going all in on this season and are looking to make a run at the playoffs and not concede for a lottery pick.
