The Los Angeles Lakers were already pretty stacked last year and got even better this season. Montrezl Harrell, Dennis Schroder, Marc Gasol, and the emergence of Talen Horton-Tucker gave them even more depth.
However, it seems like Rob Pelinka and the purple and gold are far from satisfied and aren't done making moves just yet, as they're interested in signing a 3-and-D wing with their final roster spot.
Los Angeles Lakers To Sign A 3-And-D Player With Final Roster Spot
“The Lakers are currently at $137.53 million in total salary with about $1.39 million to spare under the hard cap. With the Lakers roster at 14, it meets the league minimum number of players on board. The Lakers are expected to pursue a 3-and-D wing with their final roster spot, per sources," Jared Weiss of The Athletic reported.
"The free-agent market is limited right now, at least in terms of solid 3-and-D wings — but there are a couple of names they could go after, including Gerald Green, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Wilson Chandler," added Nico Martinez of Fadeaway World.
The Lakers could also try and bring back JR Smith, although he barely played last season. Then again, they only need a guy that's capable of giving them 15 minutes per game, knock down some shots, and not be a liability in the defensive end of the floor.
There's still plenty of season ahead of us and many things can happen, especially if James and Davis don't get back to the court soon. But as of now, it seems like the Lakers are once again the team to beat.
