NBA Free Agency: Lakers free agent options dwindling fast; updates, rumors, tracker and more

Free agency is set to take off on July 1. Keep track of the latest happenings with the Lakers in one place with our community! The Los Angeles Lakers are going to swing for the fences in free agency, already scheduled to meet with two of the top players available this summer.

Lakers Free Agency: LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love top potential Lakers power forward free agent targets

Despite the impending return of Julius Randle, the Lakers lack depth in their frontcourt. We take a look at some of the best available power forwards that the team could potentially target. Frontcourt talent is going to be the focus of the Los Angeles Lakers free agency period, and it makes sense. The majority of the best unrestricted free agents are big men, and the Lakers just passed on drafting Jahlil Okafor in favor of D'Angelo Russell. The team relied on a veteran like Carlos Boozer to soak significant minutes last season, but he's one of several players that may never wear a Lakers...

NBA Draft 2015: Utah Jazz select Trey lyles from Kentucky with 12th pick of the draft

With the #12 pick of the 2015 NBA Draft, the Utah Jazz think they have their guy. The Utah Jazz have selected/traded for bigman Krey Lyles from Kentucky. I think this is pretty fine, on it's own, because it fits in well with what the team is trying to do. It's just a downer because most Jazz fans were interested in getting someone a little more overtly dynamic, or perhaps someone they liked was picked just a few spots earlier. Either way, though, I don't think Jazz fans should be upset. Trey has big game experience, has that Carlos Boozer range on his shot, and is still only 19.6 years old....

Lakers free agency: Carlos Boozer's time with the Lakers is probably over

In the last of our Free Agency Forecast series, we take a look at Carlos Boozer and his future in the purple and gold. As an amnesty provision waiver wire pick-up, the Lakers were in a unique position with their newest big man in Carlos Boozer. For a fraction of the over $15 million he was owed by the Chicago Bulls, LA got a productive forward who had just averaged 14 points and 8 rebounds lining up next to Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler. Though he wouldn't have that same caliber teammates in the Southland and was sure to face a decline in his own skills during his age 34 season, there was no...
