Lakers Rumors: Team Interested In Free Agent Point Guard Will Bynum

The Lakers are rumored to be interested in soon-to-be free agent and former Detroit Pistons point guard, Will Bynum. Obviously the point guard position has been one that has plagued the Lakers the last few seasons, and it seems they see Bynum as a potential asset in the backcourt.

According to Pro Basketball Talk, the Lakers and the Knicks are interested in Bynum’s services.

Bynum, 30, averaged 9.8 points per game and an average PER of 16.6.

Over his career, Bynum has showed to have a quick first step, and the ability to put up points in a hurry. But after this season sitting behind emerging star guard Brandon Knight, Bynum has cut down on his bad shots and turning the ball over. Bynum is that backup point guard that any team needs. He brings athleticism and a serviceable option off the bench.

Bynum would be a very good option for the Lakers to pursue, but the problem is money. The Lakers do not have enough cap space to offer a huge offer to Bynum, but they can offer him the taxpayer’s mid-level exception of about $3.2 million which would be a cheap option for help off the bench.
