The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly have their eyes on more shooting as the offseason continues.
Basketball Insiders' Michael Scotto reported the Purple and Gold are set for a meeting with free agent Dion Waiters on Sunday evening. Waiters played for the Miami Heat in 2016-17 and drilled 39.5 percent of his three-pointers.
This comes after Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reported Heat president Pat Riley and head coach Erik Spoelstra were also set for a meeting with Waiters. Winderman noted Waiters was potentially interested in returning to Miami but was looking "for a bump" from the $2.9 million he made last season.
The Syracuse product found his shooting stroke in his 46 games for the Heat. His 39.5 percent mark from deep was a career high, and he tallied 15.8 points per game—just short of the 15.9 he averaged in 2013-14 as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Lakers are still in the middle of a rebuild after drafting Lonzo Ball No. 2 overall this year and trading for Brook Lopez, but Waiters is only 25 years old. He would give Los Angeles a young shooter who can take advantage of openings when Ball gets out in transition or attracts additional defensive attention when penetrating the lane.
