The main motivation for the Los Angeles Lakers heading into the NBA trade deadline is shedding contracts and avoiding the repeater tax. It may be unfamiliar territory for the storied franchise with the team attempting to save money, but it has become clear that they aren't competing for the playoffs at this point. With the team’s motivation being to shed money to get under the luxury tax in order to avoid the repeater tax, Steve Blake is a candidate to be shipped out of Los Angeles before the deadline on Feb. 20. One destination for Blake could be with the Golden State Warriors.
