According to Ramona Shelburne, the Los Angeles Lakers might be interested in Elton Brand.

Last season, Elton Brand averaged 7.2 points and 6 rebounds in just about 21 minutes of play. With Dwight Howard signing with the Houston Rockets, the Lakers are going to need another big. Brand made roughly $2.1 million last season with the Dallas Mavericks, so he may be looking for a bigger contract. The Lakers currently have their Mini Mid-Level Exception, which pays $3.1 million. It will be interesting to see if that will be enough for the 34-year-old big man.
