The Lakers may have star-power, but their work is not done. With virtually no depth remaining following the Anthony Davis trade, the franchise (if they cannot secure a third superstar), will look to spend their $32 million on role-players and sharpshooters.
Two of which could be Patrick Beverley and Seth Curry, in a report by Brad Turner.
Beverley and Curry are players who specialize in opposing aspects of the game. For Beverley, he is a regular candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, providing a dog-like mentality and ruthless defensive efforts on a nightly basis. This past season with the Clippers was arguably the best of his career.
As for Curry, he provides shooting and scoring off the bench, an essential need for any team (especially the Lakers). He helped the Blazers make their run in the Western Conference Finals, averaging 7.9 points on 45% shooting from beyond the arc.
Besides D'Angelo Russell and Kawhi Leonard, the Lakers will also be pursuing Terry Rozier, Julius Randle, and J.J. Reddick to name a few.
