Lakers News: Team Reportedly Interested In Free Agent Elton Brand

With Dwight Howard out of the picture in the Laker rotation, it’s time for the Lakers to initiate their secondary plans. There is a glaring need for an additional big man, and with limited options available, it seems that the Lakers are very cautious and concerned with filling that void as soon as possible so that they have an opportunity to remain competitive in the NBA.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN LA, the Lakers have gained interest in the free agent big man Elton Brand.

The 14-year veteran played last season with the Dallas Mavericks, averaging seven points and six rebounds in a reserve role off the bench.

Brand could be very useful to the Lakers. The additional big man depth would aid the loss of Dwight as he takes his talents to Houston in pursuit of an NBA championship. 

While Brand may not seem like the most attractive option, if he fits the financial range of the Lakers he could be a very useful pickup.
