The NBA Trade Deadline is looming and the Los Angeles Lakers could shock their fans and end up trading new signee, Danny Green.
The NBA Trade Deadline is at noon on Thursday, February 6, which means that the clock is ticking for the Los Angeles Lakers to make any improvements for a title run.

Plus, we see this almost every single season with LeBron James-led title-contending teams. The front office gets a better picture of what exactly the team needs by February and can tweak things.
