5 Free Agents L.A. Lakers Must Target to Bolster Small Forward Positoin

The Los Angeles Lakers have made the necessary moves to improve this summer, but the small forward position remains shallow heading into the 2012-13 NBA season.

Despite adding Steve Nash to the starting lineup and Antawn Jamison as a key reserve, the bench in L.A is still relatively weak and the small forward spot needs some serious bolstering before the new year begins.

Without any real options at the 3-spot off the bench—and Metta World Peace seemingly a viable amnesty candidate until the day his contract runs out—the team should look at a handful of remaining free agents to help balance out the rotation.

They’re not going to get an all-star, but with one of the best starting lineups that the league has to offer, the team simply needs someone they can rely on to come in and provide solid minutes behind World Peace next season.
