Lakers trading Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Clarkson are among the trades the Lakers have made since the trade deadline.
The Lakers traded for Clarkson, who is expected to play in the upcoming season and is expected by some to start alongside Bryant, for a 2017 first-round pick and a 2019 second-round draft pick, league sources told ESPNLosAngeles.com.
However, sources said that the Lakers are not expecting to receive the pick in the trade.
“We’re not looking to move Clarkson at this time,” a source told ESPNLA.com on Tuesday.
“We’re just waiting for the draft pick and the 2019 second round pick to come.”
The Lakers are expected to select first- or second-rounder in the 2019 NBA draft.
Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak and head coach Luke Walton have already said they expect Clarkson to play his way into the starting lineup this season.
The Lakers acquired Clarkson from the New Orleans Pelicans in a four-team trade in March.
Clarkson averaged 16.4 points and 7.4 rebounds in 44 games for the Pelicans last season.
He also appeared in 12 playoff games for New Orleans.
The Pelicans traded Clarkson to the New York Knicks on March 22 in a deal that sent Anthony, Josh Jackson and an unprotected 2018 first-rounder.
Anthony is expected back with the Knicks in the offseason.
The Knicks sent Jeremy Lin, Kristaps Porzingis, E’Twaun Moore, a 2019 first- and second- round pick and draft rights to the Pelicans in the Lin trade.
The 2019 first round pick from the Knicks is expected in the draft, sources told The Vertical.
The second round is expected from the Lakers in the Jackson/Clarksons deal.
The 2017 second round selection from the Pelicans is expected.
The 2018 first round selection is expected, sources tell ESPNLA, and the 2021 second round picks from the Bulls and Knicks are expected in that deal.
Los Angeles also traded guard Nick Young, a second-year player who signed a two-year deal last month, in a three-team deal with the Phoenix Suns.
Young was the fifth-highest paid player in the NBA last season, earning $19.3 million.
The Suns have a second round and 2019 first, 2019 second and 2019 third picks in 2019 and 2020, league source told the Vertical.
Los Angeles could also have trade value in a trade for the 2019 first pick from New York.
