The Los Angeles Lakers’ top priority this summer is re-signing Anthony Davis, but one upgrade the Lakers could make to their roster is at the point guard position. Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley can both become free agents with player options, which makes Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook the only other point guards under contract. If the Lakers do choose to pursue a point guard in free agency, Goran Dragic could make a lot of sense. Dragic was moved to a bench role with the Miami Heat this season, but he thrived in that role. Goran Dragic’s veteran presence and scoring ability could be a valuable addition to the Lakers’ rotation next season.

Jeff Teague is hitting unrestricted free agency this summer after being traded back to the Atlanta Hawks from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jeff Teague has been a steady veteran in the league since his stellar season with the Indiana Pacers, but since playing in Minnesota, he has been on a bit of decline. Teague’s defense and ability to get to the basket still brings value to a team, but his days as a starting point guard are beginning to dwindle.
Kris Dunn is becoming a restricted free agent this summer with the Chicago Bulls. He has not produced the way he was expected to after being drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he has turned himself into a steady defensive presence. Kris Dunn’s biggest weakness has been his offense, but any time he comes off the bench, he brings an immediate jolt of energy on the defensive end of the floor. If Avery Braldey declines his player option, Kris Dunn could be a very good replacement.
DJ Augustin, a veteran point guard for the Orlando Magic, will be hitting the open market this summer and could be a useful player in the Lakers’ rotation. Augustin has always been undersized, but that does not stop him from being an aggressive scorer. Augustin is a steady veteran that can run an offense, and now that the Orlando Magic are beginning to groom Markelle Fultz into a starting caliber point guard, they will have little incentive to re-sign DJ Augustin, which could put him right into the Los Angeles Lakers’ lap
