Lakers News: Team No Longer Pursuing Free Agents

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Golden State WarriorsBefore Steve Nash returned to the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Golden State Warriors last weekend, the team’s front office was still considering making a few moves to help get this team back on track. With Nash’s status still uncertain and veteran Steve Blake on the shelf for another month or so, backcourt help was needed with names like Delonte West and Jonny Flynn getting consideration as potential free agent additions.

After two games with Nash back in the fold and the Lakers riding a five-game win streak, GM Mitch Kupchak and company are no longer looking into adding free agents or pursuing trades for Jose Calderon according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports via Twitter:

The fact that the Lakers’ front office is retracting all interest in free agent guards around the league is a great sign. The team seems to be coming together as of late with Nash leading the charge. The veteran’s impact on the team has instantly started to turn things around for this squad that has been going in the wrong direction all season long.

The win over the New York Knicks on Christmas Day may have resulted in a huge boost in confidence for this squad. The team chemistry is beginning to come around as well as vast improvements on defense with Metta World Peace leading by example.

It’s a little early to dub this team a championship-caliber squad once again, but the future is looking bright with a healthy Nash and a motivated squad moving forward.
