The Los Angeles Lakers are widely expected to pursue LeBron James and Paul George this summer in free-agency and are listening to trade offers in an effort to position themselves accordingly.
According to a report from The Los Angeles Times, the Lakers have told rival teams that no player on their roster is untouchable in trades, including the young guns such as Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart.
The Lakers are not actively shopping any of the aforementioned players, but if an offer blows them away, they would be willing to part ways with their young core.
The franchise currently has the salary cap space to add at least one maximum contract player, but would need to tweak the roster to be able to add two this summer.
Power forward Julius Randle will be a free-agent once July 1 hits as well and he will surely be looking for top dollar after having a productive 2017-18 season.
