There are numerous reports that the Lakers are seeking adding a big man to add depth to that position. They are seeking to add a big man from the buyout market, eyeing potential players such as Deandre Jordan or Robin Lopez. This would add much needed depth to the Lakers center position. Although Javale McGee has been having a sensational season as a starter, he lacks the ability to play long stretches due to his asthma. Backup center Tyson Chandler, although a defensive anchor, is not as dominant and reliable as he once was. Defense is something the Lakers are in need of, especially as of late. There are high expectations on the Lakers this season for making the post-season, and with that way it has been looking, the Lakers really need to find some answers on the defensive end. A reliable big man may be the solution.
