From big names such as LeBron James and DeMarcus Cousins to young, promising players like Clint Capela and Aaron Gordon, and even role players like JaVale McGee and Amir Johnson, the Lakers are setting themselves up to go any number of routes.

One interesting option is veteran guard Lance Stephenson. One of the bigger characters in the NBA, Stephenson has carved out a niche for himself as a great perimeter defender, energy player, and secondary playmaker for the Indiana Pacers.

An unrestricted free agent, there are reportedly a number of teams who have expressed interest in Stephenson and the Lakers are among them according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP:

Stephenson would be an interesting addition to the core players that the Lakers already have. L.A. have a need to fill out their backcourt rotation and add another playmaker and Stephenson would do that.

Additionally, Stephenson would give the team a fierce defender and some much-needed toughness. Every team needs something of an enforcer, a player to make sure the opposition doesn’t just run over them while also energizing his own teammates.

It’s still early in the free agency process and the Lakers are addressing all possibilities and scenarios. The big names are still the priority, but the Lakers are doing well to keep an eye on other possibilities as well.
