Report: Jazz trade Sixers’ trade target Jarred Vanderbilt to Lakers

The NBA trade deadline is here and the floodgates appear to now be opening as teams are beginning to make moves before Thursday’s 3 p.m. EST trade buzzer.

The Brooklyn Nets and the Dallas Mavericks kicked things off on Feb. 5 when the Nets sent Kyrie Irving to the Mavericks in a blockbuster deal that shook up the Eastern Conference. The Mavs will now be teaming Irving up with Luka Doncic for the future.

The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t made a move yet, but one guy they had their eyes on, Jarred Vanderbilt, is now off the board.

The Jazz will send Vanderbilt to the Los Angeles Lakers in a blockbuster deal that also includes the Minnesota Timberwolves sending D’Angelo Russell out to LA. Russell Westbrook will head to the Jazz in this three-team trade.

With Vanderbilt now off the board, the Sixers will now have to turn to other options such as Nerlens Noel, Naz Reid, and Andre Drummond. It will be interesting to see where Daryl Morey and co. will go.
