NBA free agency rumors: Lakers eyeing shooters Danny Green, Seth Curry

first_imgThe Lakers will have plenty of star power if they can sign Kawhi Leonard and play him alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, but to give those three room to operate, the franchise is hunting a pair of sharpshooting free agents to help space the floor.Two targets for Los Angeles include former Leonard teammate Danny Green and former Trail Blazer Seth Curry, according to Fox Sports. NBA free agency rumors: Lakers likely to sign Andre Iguodala after Grizzlies buyout Knicks address missing out on Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving: ‘We continue to be upbeat and confident’ “Obviously, I want to maximize on the dollar, but I also want to maximize on the situation. I know I’m not an All-Star or star player, but I want to be remembered as a great role player who won a lot of games and leave my mark in the league.”It seems unlikely Green would get top dollar in Los Angeles if Leonard signs on and eats up the remaining cap space the Lakers have. However, he would certainly get a chance to win a third title. NBA free agency 2019: 3 takeaways from eventful Day 1 Kawhi to Lakers rumblings getting stronger & stronger. Iguodala likely to join Lakers after Memphis buyout. Danny Green & Seth Curry in Lakers’ scope. Lakers offered Rondo vet minimum & 24 hours to decide. Lakers on verge of building powerhouse.— Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 1, 2019Green is fresh off a championship run with the Raptors and told Hoops Hype he’s looking for two things during this free agency cycle — a chance to win and get paid.“For me, my biggest thing, my biggest mantra, is winning. I want to be in a situation where I can play, be effective and win,” Green said. “I want to be in an organization that is a contender, so I’m looking at a lot of places that have a really good foundation. … Related News Green, 32, had an effective lone season in Toronto averaging 10.3 points on 46.5 percent shooting from the floor and 45.5 percent from 3-point range. He dealt with a bit of a shooting slump in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Bucks but bounced back in the NBA Finals with 16 made 3-pointers in the six-game series.Other potential landing spots for Green include the 76ers, who need to replace JJ Redick after his reported signing with the Pelicans, and the Raptors if they convince Leonard to run it back in Toronto.Curry doesn’t have the same track record of success as Green, but he’s four years younger and likely won’t command as much money. He averaged 7.9 points per game last season and shot 45.0 percent from behind the 3-point line.last_img read more
