The Lakers will try to improve the team after a disastrous season. Free agency is one of the main areas where the team will look for new players.
A list of several established NBA players has been published that the Lakers are expected to target in this year’s free agency. It includes the likes of Otto Porter Jr., Nicolas Batum, Gary Harris among others.
The Lakers have a strong interest in retaining Monk, but it will depend on both his market and the quality of 3-and-D wings available to Los Angeles, according to league sources. Players the Lakers will target with their full taxpayer midlevel exception include Otto Porter Jr., Nicolas Batum, Gary Harris, T.J. Warren, Caleb Martin, Cody Martin, Mo Bamba and Danuel House Jr., according to multiple league sources.
