The Los Angeles Lakers only have a short amount of time to make some big offseason changes and acquisitions.
Training camp is on the way and the regular season is starting soon but the Lakers haven’t done a whole lot during the last few months.
However, there is still time to shake things up, improve the roster, and land talented players.
Right now, there is talk that Cam Reddish of the New York Knicks wants to leave his team for a squad that will respect him, give him a bigger role, and let him shine.
Some people think the Lakers should take a chance on Reddish.
In fact, some people think Reddish is exactly the sort of player that LA needs.
The Lakers were hoping to land Cam Reddish at the trade deadline last season; now he's rumored to want out of New York and in the final year of his contract. Wings are the best position to take chances on in today's NBA…

That’s what Trevor Lane says: “The Lakers were hoping to land Cam Reddish at the trade deadline last season.”
He added: “Now he’s rumored to want out of New York and in the final year of his contract.”
He concluded: “Wings are the best position to take chances on in today’s NBA…”
Is it time for LA to talk to New York about moving Reddish to the West Coast?
Reddish Ready For More
Reddish, a 6-foot-8 forward, could be a huge help to the Lakers.
The big man has put up 10.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game during his career but that has been with mostly limited minutes.
The player feels that once he is able to really step up and get more time on a time, he will shine even more.
Could the Lakers be that team?
LA definitely does need more big men for their front court and they also need youthful energy with some experience and natural skill too.
Obviously, the Lakers are interested in someone like Reddish, that’s why they tried to get him last season.
Well, now they have their chance again.
