The Los Angeles Lakers are in search for reliable big men in order to complete their roster for the 2020/21 season.

Even though the team added Montrezl Harrell and Marc Gasol to the roster, the defending champions want to sign more big men in order to avoid having Anthony Davis play as center.

“Even though Davis is more than capable at center and played the position plenty during the Lakers’ postseason run, sources told ESPN that it remains a priority for L.A.’s front office to fill the roster with other reliable centers so that Davis doesn’t have to bear the brunt of the position during the arduous regular season,” Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports, via Lakers Nation.

Davis is expected to re-sign with the Lakers in the coing days, whereas both Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee parted ways with the franchise a few days ago.
