Lakers Rumors: Los Angeles To Target Kyle Lowry In Free Agency?

With the 2014 NBA Draft only days away, a lot of rumors have started to surface about what the Los Angeles Lakers might be preparing to do. Along with being linked to Kevin Love, Klay Thompson, Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young in trade rumors, the Lakers also appear to be interested in signing soon-to-be free agent Kyle Lowry.

According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, the Lakers could make a push sign the veteran point guard this summer:

Raps have a decent shot at keeping Kyle Lowry, but there will be suitors — and the Lakers are at the top of the list.

At this point in time, the Lakers only have three players under contract. Steve Nash, Robert Sacre, and Kobe Bryant will return next season with Nick Young prepared to opt out his deal and Kendall Marshall having a non-guaranteed contract.

With the Lakers needing help across the board, the team appears to be open to signing, drafting, or trading for players at all positions. The point guard position has been a weakness for the Lakers for quite some time and Lowry would be the ideal fit for this team, but he’ll come with a high price tag which may hurt the team’s chances of pursuing a big-name like Kevin Love next summer.

Even though there may be interest in Lowry, Los Angeles will have plenty options at point guard. Keeping Marshall would be smart move with it only costing $915,243 to retain him. Jordan Farmar might also be a cheap option, but the team is stuck with Nash at $9.7 million unless they choose to use the stretch provision on the two-time NBA MVP.

The Lakers could also draft a point guard with Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State), Elfird Payton (Louisiana-Lafayette) and Tyler Ennis (Syracuse) potentially available with the seventh pick in the upcoming draft. So although the Lakers are rumored to be interested Lowry, more practical choices at point guard will be available.
