5 Potential L.A. Lakers Trade Targets Who Would Boost Perimeter Shooting

Mike D'Antoni's offense need shooters, which means the Los Angeles Lakers need shooters.

Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace have emerged as lethal threats from beyond the arc, but outside of them, no one else has been a consistent option from the outside.

While this is not to say Los Angeles' long-range shooting has been a disaster—it's connecting on 35.2 percent of its treys for the season—it has not been nearly as potent as D'Antoni would like or his system would dictate.

Which would make it time for the Lakers to hit the trade market and find some additional firepower.

The team certainly doesn't have enough assets to pull off another star-studded coup—unless the Phoenix Suns are getting bored—but there are a few intriguingly affordable options available.

Los Angeles just has to make targeting one of them a priority.
