Lakers Rumors: L.a. Continues To Show Interest In Kevin Seraphin

In free agency, the Los Angeles Lakers traded for Roy Hibbert and signed Lou Williams and Brandon Bass. With a $2.8 million exception remaining, general manager Mitch Kupchak has expressed interest in adding another guard or center.

One option who is still available in free agency is Kevin Seraphin, who has played for the Washington Wizards these past five seasons. According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops, the Lakers are among teams that continue to show interest in the 25-year-old center:

Along with Hibbert and Bass, the Lakers currently have Julius Randle, Tarik Black, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre in the frontcourt. While the Lakers could use another small forward, it appears head coach Byron Scott will have Kobe Bryant play the majority of his minutes there to allow a D’Angelo Russell-Jordan Clarkson backcourt this upcoming season.

With 14 players currently under contract, the Lakers have one spot remaining on their roster. Although Seraphin remains an option, Kupchak recently spoke about possibly signing undrafted rookie Robert Upshaw, who participated at the Las Vegas Summer League.

In five seasons, Seraphin has averaged 6.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 16.4 minutes.
