(Los Angeles Times) – The three newest Lakers were introduced Wednesday, joining a team that produced the worst record in franchise history, though each of them said this was a fresh start.
Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon Bass talked about becoming Lakers, and the team’s general manager, Mitch Kupchak, later indicated that he has considered acquiring another guard or a center.
The Lakers have five guards under contract, but Kobe Bryant may move to the starting small forward position. That would leave the Lakers with four guards, including rookie D’Angelo Russell and second-year combo guard Jordan Clarkson.
“Depending upon how you look at it, we may look to bring in another guard on board,” Kupchak said. “We may not.”
