Both Felton and Beasley have expiring contracts, and let’s face it—both don’t fit with their current team. The Lakers have a hefty trade exception from when they dealt Lamar Odom. It’s still speculation, but L.A. is likely to upgrade (at least at point guard) before the trade deadline. From Roland Lazenby: “I hear they want both Felton and Beasley. That’s their goal. But talk is cheap right now. The source is good tho. [...] Even if gained with the trade exception, Felton raises a whole new round of possibilities+questions for the Lakers, ones they’ve pondered.”
