Los Angeles Lakers fans are losing their minds on Twitter after Buddy Hield was traded by the Kings to the Pacers.
Is Rob Pelinka aware that the Los Angeles Lakers are currently in ninth place of the Western Conference standings and on the outside looking in for the playoffs? That’s what fans want to know, as the team hasn’t been busy ahead of the NBA trade deadline.
On Tuesday, more hearts were broken in LA after the Sacramento Kings traded Buddy Hield, Tyrese Haliburton and Tristan Thompson to the Pacers.
Lakers fans furious the team missed out on Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton
Pelinka couldn’t get creative and pull something off here? Lakers fans had been hoping that the team could be aggressive and bring in some top talent to help this team get back on track. While injuries have hurt the Lakers this season, there’s no excuse for them being 26-28 entering the showdown with the Bucks on Tuesday.
While the majority of Lakers supporters are upset Hield and Haliburton are headed to Indiana, people are still holding out hope that the Pacers will turn around and send him to LA before the deadline. That’s wishful thinking.
Right now, it’s looking like the Lakers have missed out on improving the roster once again. The frustration is only going to keep growing for the fanbase.
We’ll have to wait and see what Pelinka has to say once the deadline arrives, but there’s loads of people who are not happy with him. He’s got some serious explaining to do.
The truth to the matter is that the Lakers don’t have nearly as many assets as some teams in the Association to trade. Because of this, they’re the odd team out.
