Offseason Moves LA Lakers Must Consider to Revamp Bench
USA TODAY Sports
Signing Will Bynum would solidify the Los Angeles Lakers' backcourt.

There were a number of reasons the Los Angeles Lakers disappointed during the 2012-13 campaign, but primary among them was the team's lack of depth. 

L.A.'s bench mustered the league's third-worst point output last season, scoring 25.4 points per game. Only the Indiana Pacers and Portland Trail Blazers ranked worse, according to HoopsStats

After a season of relying far too heavily on the team's aging starting unit, the Lakers now have an opportunity to overhaul their bench with several low-key signings. It's important to note that the Lakers won't be able to make a big splash, because the team already has more than $78 million committed in salary for next season, according to HoopsHype

As such, the team will only be able to take advantage of the mini mid-level exception and veteran minimum contracts in order to revamp their second unit.
