There's no question what the Lakers need this summer. Youth, athleticism, perimeter defense, bench scoring and backup big men who'll bring toughness.
Unfortunately, just like this year's NBA Draft, there's no glamorous free agent that everybody wants and most of the available players are nothing more than great role players that aren't as attractive to the naked eye.
It's all the more reason why the Lakers should target these players. They may be unlikely targets but they can step in and contribute. With their current dynasty in that awkward transition challenge from staying relevant or planning ahead after Kobe Bryant, these players can address both needs.
