Ty Lawson’s second DUI could be a large coup for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports that the Detroit Pistons, Houston Rockets and LA Lakers have all expressed serious interest in possibly trading for Lawson. The Sacramento Kings also remain in the mix, despite having signed free agent Rajon Rondo.

The presence of Emmanuel Mudiay—the 6’5”, 200-pound former high school phenom who has emerged as one of the breakout stars of the Las Vegas summer league—has made Lawson largely expendable in Denver. Despite playing just 12 games for the Guangdong Southern Tigers last season, Mudiay, 19, has looked like a polished pro in Vegas and is poised to be the centerpiece of Denver’s rebuilding effort.

The 27-year-old Denver Nuggets point guard averaged 15.2 points and a career-high 9.6 assists per game this past season.
