Lakers Rumors & Recaps: Lakers Looking To Make More Moves?

The rumors are starting swirl around the City of Angels once again with talk of the Los Angeles Lakers showing interest in free agent Mickael Pietrus. 

The veteran guard isn’t the only player the Lakers’ front office is reportedly interested in with talk of Raja Bell also on the team’s radar. Bell is still under contract with the Utah Jazz, but will have the difference of the $3.5 million left on his deal bought out by Utah if he can sign for the veteran’s minimum elsewhere.

Along with these veterans reportedly receiving interest from the Lakers, Chris Duhon and Steve Blake appear to still be on the trading block. The Lakers’ front office continues to gauge interest in these two players via trade, but have yet to receive any takers for Duhon or Blake.

With Mike D’Antoni at the helm, GM Mitch Kupchak and company are looking to make a few more changes to the roster to accommodate the new style of offense. The team has shown signs of promise under D’Antoni at times in wins over the Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets, but have also looked awful in losses to the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies.

Although there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for the new-look Lakers, there’s still a lot of work to be done in order to get this team to reach the potential intended. The return of Steve Nash may very well be the missing piece to the championship puzzle in Los Angeles, but it’s clear that the front office isn’t satisfied with the roster and may continue to make moves in an attempt to become a legitimate title contender this season.

      Not easy. Teams don’t want our junk.

    The Lakers need to get younger & faster if they think they will keep this new coach… Funny, the old & slow need a Phil Jackson, the young & fast, need the present Laker coach so I am confused or the ownership is confused…. The two players that NEED to be traded for younger faster players are first Pau Gasol & YES, Steve Nash…

    There are three great future studs now playing that would LOVE to get Pau & the Lakers could end up with not only a future young star but a younger & faster power forward as well…They could also go for Michael Kidd Gilcrist, move Hill into the staring Power forward spot, put Gilgcrist into the small forward spot & move Peace onto the bench as the leader…Nash can go to Toronto for the point they picked up when they lost Nash and we would go into the rest of the season much younger & much faster…

      …and with this lineup, the Clippers will humiliate us by 50 points differential. Susman, Susman!?!

      I agree with you only on coaching point of view:
      Coach is run-and-gun style while players are old (d12). Phil would have been great but then Nash would have struggle or don’t know what the outcome would have been. Balancing this Lakers team is difficult.
