The Los Angeles Lakers are once again looking at athletic players who would thrive in Mike D'Antoni's fast paced offense. The team is reportedly interested in acquiring shooting guard Xavier Henry.
After signing Shawne Williams to a partially-guaranteed one-year deal at the veterans minimum, the storied franchise is still not done filling out their roster.
The Lakers have 13 players under contract next season, excluding unsigned draft pick and injury-riddled Ryan Kelly. So if Henry is invited to training camp, he should have a decent chance at making the final roster.
With the uncertainty of Kobe Bryant's return, the 22-year-old can provide the necessary depth at the shooting guard position. The former Kansas Jayhawk was projected to be a top recruit out of high school, and while he certainly hasn't lived up to the hype in his three-year NBA career, with the right system he may find his niche in the league.
The Lakers' best bet is to offer Henry a training camp invite and further evaluate his game. They also invited summer league standout Marcus Landry to training camp, so whoever preforms better may earn a final roster spot.
