Lakers aren't interested in opening a roster spot to acquire Derek Fisher, Kenyon Martin or any other free agent, a source told Y! Sports.

I just have this weird feeling Raja Bell is going to be a Laker before the deadline. He is the only person that we've been connected since the start of the season.
Guess this is the reason why we didn't go after Pietrus. That sucks considering we definitely have some dead weight or pieces that could have been dropped to make room for a great role player like him.
I also get the feeling that they may be shooting for Bell because of D' Antoni's familiarity with him. I can't say that I am a fan. I pretty much can't stand that guy, but oh well.
I think our one big hole is backup 3. Ebanks isn't making the cut. So at the deadline I could see us moving some of the guys on the outside of the bubble for a backup wing who can shoot and maybe play some D. We've got Clark, Morris (who I think will be retained), DJO, and Blake that could be put in there.
