Trading Jordan and/or Bazemore would allow the Lakers to pursue players on the buyout market, Windhorst added.
Both players started for the Lakers earlier this season, with Jordan starting 18 games and Bazemore starting 14. But both have been pulled from the rotation in recent weeks and rarely, if ever, appear.

Jordan, 33, is 7-foot-1 and is averaging 4.5 points and 5.7 rebounds in 27 appearances this season. He was traded from the Nets to the Pistons, and then quickly waived, before signing with the Lakers ahead of camp.
Bazemore, 32, is 6-4 and has compiled averages of 4.3 points and 2.0 boards in 22 games. He signed with the Lakers on Aug. 6.
