Lakers Get: Rui
Hachimura Washington Get: Kendrick Nunn, 3 second-round picks Hachimura,
the only Japanese player currently playing in the NBA along with Yuta Watanabe, was selected by Washington with the ninth overall pick in the 2019 draft. Hachimura, who was praised for having a similar playstyle to Kawhi Leonard, is a forward with a wingspan of 218cm and a height of 203cm.
Washington eventually broke up with Hachimura, who continued to circulate rumors of a trade. Hachimura and Washington could not reach an agreement in last summer’s contract extension negotiations, and the possibility of a trade increased as Washington prioritized Kyle Kuzma’s long-term contract. 헤라카지노
The Lakers, who desperately needed good-sized forward resources, eased their worries with Hachimura’s recruitment. Hachimura has been a key part of Washington’s bench unit this season, averaging 13.0 points and 4.3 rebounds.
In the case of Nunn, who will wear a Washington uniform, he averaged 13.5 minutes with the Lakers this season and posted 6.7 points. There were many redundant resources such as Russell Westbrook and Dennis Schroeder in the guard position.
