The L.A. Lakers are currently in the midst of one of the best seasons in franchise history.

With LeBron James and Anthony Davis, the team is 1st in the West with a 24-3 record and near the top of the league in almost every statistical category.

Amazingly, they might not even be done making moves.

According to Matt Peralta of Lakers Nation, the Lakers are eyeing Redick this NBA trade season as they look for ways to improve the team before February's deadline.

“Redick — who signed a two-year, $26 million deal with the New Orleans Pelicans — has voiced his desire to play in the playoffs, but will likely be watching from home at this rate given their struggles. The Pelicans are all-in on their rebuild and Redick’s talents as a sharpshooter would mesh well playing next to Davis and James in five-out lineups. For New Orleans, they add to their treasure chest of future Los Angeles draft picks in the process.”

As a career 15-point-per game scorer, Redick is an offensive specialist and long-distance sharpshooter.

Next to LeBron James (who will get him open shots) and Anthony Davis (who will collapse the defense), Redick would be a near-perfect fit. But how much are the Lakers willing to give up for him?

KCP, Quinn Cook, and a few draft picks might be enough to get it done -- no doubt, the Lakers will see for themselves in the coming weeks.
