Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles hears that Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is now scouring the free agent market for another wing player to add with Kobe Bryant out. Although recently waived Stephen Jackson is available, he wouldn't be playoff eligible since he was released after the March buyout deadline. The same applies to Raja Bell, another target earlier this season.

Though the loss of Kobe creates a large opening with regards to minutes, it's difficult to imagine Kupchak adding a player who can take on a significant role immediately this late into the season. One could make a strong argument that a reasonable target would be one that either has familiarity with the team's current personnel or a veteran with playoff experience.

According to our list of current available free agents, Chris Douglas-Roberts - a Lakers training camp participant last October - is available and would be cleared to play in the postseason. Another option could be Maurice Evans, a former member of the purple and gold from 2006 to 2008, who has been waiting all year for an opportunity to play.

Would love to see CDR back, even if for just a few games. He's gotta be fresh, and while not anything close to a star he's another hustle guy from what I saw, kinda like a smaller Earl Clark with more scoring ability.

CDR, sure, let's get him. He can play.

Speaking of former Lakers...I saw that Laron Profit is an assistant coach for the Magic.

Definitely wouldn't mind getting Glock back. Really think he could strive as our backup PG if Nash continues to be out for a while.

wb glock, it'll be interesting to see how his game has matured since he left us. i'm glad he's been active in the d-league at least so there shouldn't be any issues of conditioning.

if we had dantoni from the beginning or phil than barnes would have stayed and been balling since hes healthy.

would have been a solid backup to metta but we prob wouldnt have given clark a chance to show what he can do. i like barnes over clark just bc we need SF's but i guess mike brown screwed us in more ways than one.

glock will be okay. nothing amazing, but we need guards and duhon/morris dont have what we need apparently. i liked duhon and his playmaking and 3's but i guess glock can do more now. who knows. guess well see if he gets minutes or is just for insurance/practice

Any of those guys would be great.. Hard to say no to the overall game of Wall or Kyrie but Curry is going to go down as the best 3 point shooter in league history. Would be an amazing fit with Dwight.
