The Los Angeles Lakers are seeking "one more difference-making playmaker" this offseason that would allow LeBron James and Anthony Davis to play more at power forward and center.
The Lakers have had a deep center rotation in each of the past two seasons despite the fact that their best lineup features James and Davis at the two big positions.
The Lakers let Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee depart in 2020, replacing them with Marc Gasol, Montrezl Harrell and eventually Andre Drummond. Harrell played sparingly in the Lakers' first round series against the Phoenix Suns.
Marc Stein of Substack adds that the Lakers could pursue Lonzo Ball as a potential target for the strategy.
