How are things on the West Coast?

The Los Angeles Lakers have had a quiet start to the National Basketball Association free agency period, but never fear, there are still plenty of names swirling around the Lakers rumor mill. Early on Tuesday morning, there were rumors of a three-way sign and trade between the Denver Nuggets, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Atlanta Hawks. The signing of Crawford is contingent upon the Atlanta Hawks buying out Crawford if/when the Clippers complete their sign-and-trade for Danilo Gallinari. But according to a report from Marc Spears, Crawford is already looking elsewhere, and would apparently like to keep playing at Staples Center. Crawford has two years and $29 million remaining on his contract, but the final year is partially guaranteed.

Los Angeles has high hopes that Ball will be the catalyst it needs to contend again in the near future, but as far as the 2017-18 season is concerned, the team needs an experienced vet to pair with him and the rest of the notably young roster.

Young averaged 13.2 points per game and shot 40 percent from 3-point range last season for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Since Atlanta is rebuilding and will be presumably under the cap, the Hawks are a prime target eat up salary to reach the floor.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Crawford, 37, is included in a three-team trade being finalized that would send the three-time Sixth Man Award victor to the Atlanta Hawks. He's done a lot of great things in the National Basketball Association, but winning a championship evades him.

Timing of the trade is critical for a potential Crawford reunion because Young, 32, is also in talks with the Warriors and the Pelicans, sources say.
