If they were to be able to trade him to Toronto, the Lakers would be sacrificing their cap space for the likes of Rudy Gay and/or DeMar DeRozan. It's highly unlikely that the Lakers would settle for players of that level, as opposed to the superstar(s) they'll be hoping to recruit in the next year or two.
