Could a familiar face be joining the Lakers in 2013-14?

Who will the Los Angeles Lakers pursue to fill out their roster?

The team has $76.9 million tied up on 13 players. While that number may be above the NBA’s luxury tax threshold of $71.7 million, the Lakers sill have the veteran’s minimum to use on free agents.

Needless to say, don’t expect any big-name signings to arrive in Tinseltown over the next few weeks.

Luckily, there are still several low-cost options out there for Los Angeles.
