Jared Zwerling: Talking to league insiders, I'm hearing these names are being mentioned in trade talks within league circles (a lot of talk right now): A. Afflalo, T. Ariza, C. Singleton, G. Davis, R. Evans, P. Gasol, T. Gibson, C. Landry, G. Monroe, A. Rivers, T. Sefolosha and G. Vasquez.

People have talked about trading for Lowry for years here, if it's stopped it's probably because they feel it's not likely or realistic. As for a free agent singing, I didn't even know he was going to be one, and if people haven't mentioned him maybe they feel we need a wing or big ahead of a PG, that seems to be most of the discussion around here.

As for him coming here, I think we have PGs already. I'm fine with rolling with Farmar/Marshall for the foreseeable future. I'd rather target wings and big men.

A good PG would be nice, but not necessary with Kobe. Farmar is good because he shoots a good clip from three, but has the ability to finish as well.
What a team with Kobe on it needs is another scorer he can trust. He had that in 2008-2010. Until Pau decided he didn't want to play anymore we saw 2007 Kobe again in 2013, but that didn't fair well with his age. We need someone to share the scoring load. Someone who he can defer to when needed.
Not saying having a good PG is bad, just saying another scorer would be better.
The Lakers, Bulls and Bobcats will be among the teams who can and would offer an ample payday and increased opportunity for Stephenson this summer.
