But the Lakers gained an additional draft pick to complement a young roster that includes D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and Ivica Zubac.The Lakers could make more deals before Thursday’s trade deadline, though Johnson called the team’s young core “untouchable.” The Lakers didn’t limit their changes to the front office on Tuesday. They also started making changes to their roster, too.The Lakers traded veteran guard Lou Williams to the Houston Rockets for veteran small forward Corey Brewer and a first-round pick, according to the Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.Though the Lakers have not confirmed the deal, the move illustrated the vision that Magic Johnson had outlined earlier as the team’s new president of basketball operations. Johnson had said Williams “has been probably the player everybody has been calling about the most.”Though Williams is averaging career-highs this season in points (18.6 points) and field-goal percentage (44.4) the 30-year-old reserve guard did not fit in the Lakers’ long-term plans.
