Around the Realm: Dennis Schroder traded to Lakers, Harden wants to join the Nets

We round up today's news and rumors from around the league.

Welcome to Around the Realm, where we look at the top news stories from around the league. If I missed any notable stories, feel free to discuss in the comments!

Lakers acquire Dennis Schroder

Although the trade moratorium doesn't lift until tomorrow morning, we have our first agreed upon NBA trade in 9 months. The Los Angeles Lakers are trading the 28th pick and Danny Green to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Dennis Schroder.

Woj and Shams were dueling back and forth on updates, but Shams was the first to report that the deal was agreed upon. Then, Marc Stein chimed in to explain why the Lakers wanted Schroder:

Ultimately I think the Thunder came out ahead. Schroder gives the Lakers ball handling help and he's solid on catch and shoot threes, but I think Danny Green will be missed despite the big shots he...missed.

Lakers also chasing Wes Matthews

Stein also added another note regarding the Lakers plans, that they intend to chase Wesley Matthews.

This is of particular interests to Kings fans because if the Bucks lose Matthews they'll be looking for free agent help at shooting guard. They've been reported as being interested in Bogdan Bogdanovic.

James Harden wants to join the Nets

The assembled ESPN forces of Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe, and Ramona Shelburne reported Sunday that James Harden would like to join the Brooklyn Nets.

Woj also noted that at this point the Rockets aren't entertaining offers, but considering how toxic the environment in Houston was before Harden wanted out, I'm not sure this is a stare-down the Rockets organization can win.

Bridges for #12? Hield + Parker for Bridges + Batum?

Lol that’s Jason from StR. He used to go by like FreeCabocalo or some shit like that. He just pretends to have sources on that Twitter account. I feel like he actually just tweaked my idea I tweeted at Tim: Bagley + Buddy for Batum + Bridges and the #3 pick.

Oh, I remember that guy. I wouldn’t take anything to heart in what he is saying.

Lol that’s hilarious, I remember when he changed his name to FreeCabolco.
His source is probably Vlade.

Ha! That’s great. I mean, I’m not thrilled I gave him some exposure. But that’s how the silly season works.
