The Los Angeles Lakers have finally made a move in free agency, reportedly agreeing to a trade for Indiana Pacers center, Roy Hibbert. Despite that, the team may not be done making moves in the frontcourt.
According to Marc J. Spears Of Yahoo! Sports, the Lakers are reportedly interested in Washington Wizards big man Kevin Seraphin:

Seraphin would be an interesting addition if the Lakers were able to bring him on. He’s spent all five of his NBA seasons with the Wizards, but has never played more than 21.8 minutes per game in a season. He has the size to bang down low, but can also step out and hit a mid-range jumper from time to time.
With Hibbert on board, the Lakers seem to be pretty full in the frontcourt. Hibbert joins Tarik Black, Julius Randle, Ryan Kelly, Robert Sacre, and Larry Nance Jr. as players who will play either power forward or center. Adding Seraphin would make for a very crowded frontcourt.
The Lakers may also look for players to fill the hole at the small forward position as it would seem likely that Kobe Bryant would start there at this time. The Lakers seem poised to fill out the rest of their roster over the next few days, so it will be fun to see who they wind up targeting.[divide]
