The Los Angeles Lakers could look to finish their offseason with a shooter to round out the roster.
The Los Angeles Lakers have had a tremendous offseason. Rob Pelinka has continued to build this team even better with limited resources. The Lakers have become better on paper this year than they were last year when they won the championship.
The team made use of both the mid-level exception on Montrezl Harrell and the bi-annual exception on Wesley Matthews. Both were tremendous pickups for this team. The trade of Dennis Schröder also helped the offense get even better.
The Lakers have some shooting on the team as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Schröder and Matthews were all good from deep last year. The good part about it with those guys is they can all defend as well. So the Lakers are deep with players that don’t just play one end of the floor.
As the offseason continues to march on, there is the possibility that some cheap deals can factor in. It is never a bad idea to be equipped with many shooters off the bench. The value is there on the veteran minimum and won’t affect the Lakers as they become hard-capped.
You also have to factor in injuries that guys may have during the season. So a seasoned veteran that can shoot the ball and is ready to play at any time is a luxury. The market is dwindled down but it isn’t bone dry.
Here are three options the Lakers could look at as a 3-point specialist. Allowing the team to space the floor and open up the driving lanes off the bench.
