Lakers Looking For Fresh Talent Post-Trade Deadline?

Rumor has it the Los Angeles Lakers still might add a new piece to their rotation despite the fact that they were quiet during yesterday’s trade deadline. The Lakers front office has stated they have interest in multiple players that are on the market in an attempt to bolster their line-up for a third consecutive title run.

Currently the Lakers have stated their interest in Troy Murphy, Jason Kapono, and Leon Powe. The team only has 14 players on the active roster, so they could add a new player without being forced to release a current one.

Murphy was recently traded from the New Jersey Nets to the Golden State Warriors, but will reportedly be bought out by Golden State before next Thursday’s deadline. Kapono, who played his college ball at UCLA, is in a similar situation, and will be reportedly bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The third choice, Leon Powe, is someone that many Laker fans are familiar with. Powe played for the Boston Celtics in 2008 and gave the Lakers fits in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Whether the Lakers will make a new addition or not is yet to be seen, but it appears they are still looking to improve their roster in any way possible while they still have the opportunity to do so.
