Three-Team Trade

Lakers receive:
* Kyrie Irving
* Bojan Bogdanovic
* Nerlens Noel
* Alec Burks

Pistons receive:
* Russell Westbrook
* Kessler Edwards
* '27 top-10 protected 1st (via LAL)
* '23 unprotected 2nd (via LAL)
* '23 unprotected 2nd (from LAL, via CHI)

Nets receive:
* Patrick Beverley
* Kendrick Nunn
* 2029 unprotected 1st (via LAL)

Lakers get a more adequate third star as well as supplementary pieces to help them compete this season. Kyrie and Bojan would start alongside LeBron, AD, and Reaves. Lonnie Walker would get to move to a more natural 6th man role and their bench would be much deeper. Pistons would get to embrace their tank with more draft assets, and potentially a new starting backcourt partner for Ivey in Russ as Cade may miss the year. The Nets front office simply put want to get rid of any further Kyrie drama and will likely let him walk in free agency this summer so in turn they get what could be a very valuable draft pick and save about $40M off their luxury tax bill for this season. Beverley and Nunn could play for Brooklyn or could be flipped along with other players/assets to acquire a big man in the pay range (I.e. Turner, Vooch, Capela).

Lakers and Pistons are over the salary cap so the salary must match for the Nets which it doesn't in this trade. The only 2 teams who can take on salary are the Spurs and Pacers. Neither will help the Lakers unless they get 2 first round picks in return. Which neither have players who will make the Lakers a championship contending this season.

Beverley and Nunn would get other players but no assets. If the Lakers are below .500 by the trade deadline and the Lakers can't get expiring contracts in return those 2 will probably get waived. You have Irving going out and a 2029 Lakers first coming in? Yeah not happening. Irving around the league has a very low market value. If it is going to cost the Lakers all those picks to get Irving this season might as well wait until he is a free agent this coming offseason.
