2019 NBA free agency rumors continue to swirl around the Los Angeles Lakers. Can the franchise turn it around by signing big free agents like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving or Kawhi Leonard or will they focus on the 2019 NBA Draft? If all else fails, there are always talented players that can be found on the cheap for 1-year contracts, who are the diamonds in the rough who could be targets in Lakers free agency?
2019 Lakers free agency may fall short of expectations if L.A. can’t land a top free agent but that doesn’t mean there isn’t talent elsewhere. Players like Al Horford and Marc Gasol could potentially be on the move and find themselves in the purple and gold on the cheap due to age. DeMarcus Cousins has battled injuries for the last few seasons including a torn quad with the Golden State Warriors. Could the Lakers be the team where he proves himself with a cheap, 1-year deal? The 4 possible short-term free agents the Lakers should go for in 2019 NBA free agency are:
#4 - Marc Gasol
#3 - Al Horford
#2 - Nikola Vucevic
#1 - DeMarcus Cousins
