Steve Nash Open To Helping The Lakers Recruit In Free Agency

At this point of the season, the Los Angeles Lakers organization and fans alike are aware of the importance of this summer. If the Lakers plan on turning things around, it will begin with the 2015 NBA Draft as well as free agency.

Free agency will be full of a number of players capable of making an impact for the Lakers and according to Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times, recently retired point guard Steve Nash says he would help the Lakers recruit free agents if they want him to:

Any help the Lakers could get in bringing big-name talent to Los Angeles should be welcome. The Lakers don’t have the most talented roster and they have to figure out a way to convince players to take part in a quick rebuild.

The draft will also play a major role in the summer as the Lakers will have multiple draft picks in what is expected to be a relatively deep draft. Combined with the cap room the Lakers have in free agency, the trajectory of the franchise could change drastically if all goes well.

On the court, Nash was unable to make the impact he would have liked, but he has the opportunity to make a major impact for the Lakers after his retirement. While that may not make up for his failed three years, it would be a nice consolation.
