After adding star guard Russell Westbrook to their roster, the Los Angeles Lakers could look into players such as forward Trevor Ariza, swingman Andre Iguodala, and guard Goran Dragic:
“The Lakers need shooting,” wrote Broderick Turner, Andrew Greif and Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times. “One name that is coming up is Patty Mills. He can shoot the lights out and would be great off the bench. Wayne Ellington is another shooter who has interest in rejoining the Lakers. Trevor Ariza and Andre Iguodala are veteran wings who are candidates. Carmelo Anthony is interested, just waiting on a call from the Lakers when free agency opens Monday. Guess who might be back for a third time? Yup, Dwight Howard is ready to return and play center. Jeff Green and Goran Dragic also are names to look out for.”
Dragic has spent the last six-plus seasons with the Heat. Last year, he averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 assists, and 3.4 rebounds in 50 games while playing 26.7 minutes per night.
