Lakers next challenge? Building around James Davis

Lakers next challenge? Building around James Davis

However, according to a recent report, there is one team that is in play for Anthony. "Lakers fans, be patient".

While there may be interest, Begley notes the Achilles injury to free agent target Kevin Durant decreases the chance of the Knicks building a "win-now" roster next season and therefore makes bringing Anthony back into the fold less likely. Anthony has not played since November 8 after the Houston Rockets announced that they'd be going in a different direction.

Despite the Lakers' potential interest, Begley notes that a reunion with the New York Knicks is a possibility. It seems as though they are just looking for the right partner and the right price. With NBA free agency approaching, the Lakers are on the verge of either realizing their dream of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and a smartly constructed roster or furthering the narrative about a front office that can't identify talent beyond superstars. ESPN's Dave McMenamin claims the Lakers will look to split their $23.8 million cap space and focus on three areas the squad needs strengthening. Surely some players would be willing to take pay cuts to join the Lakers in such a scenario, but depth would be a big problem.

Zeigler noted in this context that in contrast to Apollo-era technology, current scientific instruments are much more sensitive. The last three - Apollo 15 , 16 and 17 - had rovers that significantly upped the sample collection and coverage area.

Although neither player logged big minutes, Morris showed flashes of being able to add consistent scoring while Davis is a great rebounder when given the minutes.

But he can be a valuable bench piece that can come in and provide off-ball scoring. He is a role player that is chasing his first championship and can help the Lakers more by taking a lesser role.

Another issue facing the Lakers this free agency was that most of the top free agents like Leonard, Durant, Thompson and even Irving did not have the Los Angeles franchise high on their list as it is nearly certain that you will be playing in the shadow of three-time National Basketball Association champion James.
