Lakers have shown an interest in Chicago's Jabari Parker

According to Windhorst, a trade could get done here soon.

The Los Angeles Lakers have remained active in the trade deadline even without considering the team's pursuit of Anthony Davis.

Injured Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans reacts during the first half against the Denver Nuggets at the Smoothie King Center on January 30, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. But, the Bulls do have the trade pieces and potential in free agency this off-season to make for an ideal situation a superstar like Davis to wind up in.

"Caldwell-Pope is available and has been floated out there for some spots", Windhorst said.

Most recently, Caldwell-Pope reportedly discussed in a swap with the Chicago Bulls for Jabari Parker, but that too seemed to be even more short lived. And the thing about this is Caldwell-Pope has to approve of a trade ... "Jabari is a polarizing player but he might be interesting on the Lakers".

In 39 games this season for the Bulls, Jabari Parker is averaging 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per contest.

Bullock would be appealing to the Lakers because he is an expiring contract as he is on the last year of a two-year, $5 million deal, but his 3-point shooting also appeals to them. If the Lakers were to move both Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma in a trade for Davis, they'd need more front-court depth.

While the Lakers interest in Jabari Parker is far from the main event, it's interesting that they're kicking the tires on him.
