Well I like that Mitch is not being bashful, he's been quite busy calling about trying to get shooters:
Dave McMenamin @mcten 35m
The Lakers have been in contact with Francisco Garcia's representative, according to a league source. There is "mutual interest"
Dave McMenamin @mcten 32m
The Lakers have inquired about L.A. native Nick Young, according to agent Mark Bartelstein. They had interest in Young last summer as well
Laker Nation @LakerNation 28m
Nick Young, Carlos Delfino and Chase Budinger are being targeted by the Lakers.
Dave McMenamin @mcten 21m
Lakers have also inquired about Cavs guard Wayne Ellington with his agent Arn Tellem. Notice a trend? Putting shooting at a premium
Mike Bresnahan @Mike_Bresnahan 21m
Source: Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak indeed met with Dwight Howard briefly after free agency started at 9:01 p.m. Lakers pushing hard...
By my calculations here is the list of players we have all and inquired about
1) Jordan Farmar
2) Carlos Delfino
3) Wayne Ellington
4) Nick Young
5) Chase Budinger (not likely to get though)
6) Fransisco Garcia
I like it!!
