5 Free Agents the Lakers Should Still Target

1. Enes Kanter While I’d be the first to tell you that Enes Kanter is pretty much a non factor defensively, he’s definitely a skilled big man offensively. The Lakers have failed to attract any free agent big man this offseason, which has left a gaping hole on their roster.  That hole is currently being occupied by Robert Sacre, who is certainly not starter material. Behind him...

Los Angeles Lakers: Now what?

Jordan Hill Well that did not go as planned. The Los Angeles Lakers have not had a very successful free agency period and have failed to attract any big-name players to the team.

Hill, along with other big men on the team, became frustrated at times throughout last season due to Mike D’Antoni’s coaching style and management skills.

Free-agent-to-be Jordan Hill only open to Lakers return if role changes next season

Jordan Hill has been a victim of The Mike D’Antoni System this season. When on the court, Hill has been productive – he recorded 18 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks in 29 minutes of play just last night against the Sacramento Kings – though he hasn’t received constant minutes from the head coach. The 26-year-old even went through an eight-game stretch last month where he...
