The Los Angeles Lakers could use one more point guard for depth purposes.
The Los Angeles Lakers have had a stellar offseason. Rob Pelinka has done an excellent job of improving the team by leaps and bounds and made even more headlines this week. The Lakers agreed to extensions with both LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
LeBron’s contract now runs through 2023 and Anthony Davis signed a five-year, $180 million contract with a fifth-year termination option.
The roster is pretty much all set for next season, albeit with a few small needs. Our own Daniel Preciado broke down the needs that the Los Angeles Lakers have this offseason, one of which being one more point guard for depth purposes.
It makes sense. The Lakers have LeBron James and Dennis Schroder to essentially eat up all the minutes at point guard but they do not have that extra third depth option. Last season they had Troy Daniels and then Quinn Cook.
The Lakers could easily open a roster spot for another point guard by waiving the non-guaranteed Alfonzo McKinnie. If so, here are four point guards that would round out the roster nicely.
