Will the Los Angeles Lakers bolster their title chances with a deal before the 2020 NBA trade deadline?

With a four-game cushion atop the Western Conference at 29-7, the Lakers have the best odds among championship contenders at Caesars Sportsbook (plus-250).

The Lakers will surely look to upgrade their roster, whether it's via trade -- with little to offer in the way of draft picks after last summer's deal for Anthony Davis -- or with a midseason free agent.

ESPN experts Bobby Marks and Kevin Pelton assess the Lakers' trade options.
