The Los Angeles Lakers are in search for players to bolster their roster ahead of the March 25 trade deadline.

According to several NBA scouts, the Lakers are in bigger need for a shooter, not a center.

“The Lakers’ three-point shooting, as a whole, has been disappointing. I’ve talked to some scouts who think it’s a bigger need than help at center,” Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports, via Lakers Daily.

The Lakers have one of the worst three-point percentages in the NBA, at 35.1%.
