It's that time of the year when no player is safe, as the trade season begins.
The trade season just began and there's already been a huge bomb. The Los Angeles Lakers are doing everything possible to go back-to-back, and have made an important move.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi reported Dennis Schroder is Los Angeles bound, as the Lakers have reached a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the German point guard.
Also, Danny Green (who was part of the initial Lakers-Thunder trade), has been sent to the Philadelphia 76ers along with Terrance Ferguson in exchange for Al Horford and two draft picks. Philadelphia is also sending the rights to Serbian point guard Vasilije Micic to the Thunder, who is considered one of Europe's top point guards.
Following this move, Oklahoma City will have three picks in the 2020 NBA Draft, including two first rounders, No. 25 and 28.

This is Daryl Morey's first trade as president of basketball operations for the 76ers after joining them during the offseason. Also, Thunder's VP Sam Presti has added yet another piece for the team's future, accumulating 18 first-round picks in the next seven years.
