There has been yet another trade in the NBA, and for those involved, they won't have to do much traveling to their new destinations.
The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers that will see Mike Muscala join the Lakers in exchange for Ivica Zubac and Michael Beasley, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Beasley and Zubac will be shipped off to their inner-city rivals whilst Muscala will join his second new team in as many days. Muscala was initially traded to the Clippers from Philadelphia as part of the return for Tobias Harris.
In 2018, Muscala has averaged 7.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and a career-high 1.4 threes per game, draining the deep ball at a 34.2 percent clip.
Beasley has averaged 7.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game. He missed a month of game action while overcoming the loss of his mother.
Zubac has averaged 8.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks across 15.3 minutes per game this season for the Lakers and will be vying for an increased role with the Clippers.
As for Lakers fans, we're sorry this trade wasn't a real one.
