The Lakers are in search for a big man that will play for 15-20 minutes, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

As Haynes reports, the Lakers are looking for a player with a similar role to the one JaVale McGee had last season.

“[Center] is definitely a position of need that they want to address. But they have a couple different ways they could do it.

But also there’s a name out there that the Lakers would be revisiting if this were to happen. He’s another Cavs big man, JaVale McGee. The Lakers feel like they do need somebody out there who can hold down that center spot for 15 to 20 minutes solid.

Marc Gasol, for the most part, hasn’t given them that consistent play. They like Montezl’s [Harrell] energy coming off the bench and giving them extended minutes depending on the matchup they are playing against, but they still want a placeholder at that spot that can be sturdy,” Haynes said during his appearance on The Undisputed, via Lakers Daily.

The Lakers have been linked to Andre Drummond, DeMarcus Cousins and McGee and want to make their move before the March 25 trade deadline.
