The Lakers are now going to get more open looks than they ever imagined. We need lots of guys where catch and shoot. Not just guys who are ok shooters, but we need some modern day Ray Allen or Klay Thompson types who can flat knock down shots and bury teams. Someone hopefully deadlier than Kuzma and Hart (and Wagner).

Reddick
Nick Young.
Wayne Ellington

Joe Harris would of been perfect, but he resigned already.

We definitely still need more shooters. Right now we only got:

Kuzma
Hart
KCP
Wagner
Svi

Two of our 5 shooters are rookies.

I’d add Lonzo but 31% last season won’t cut it.

Too bad that Bellineli was taken by the Spurs already and 76ers have lots of cap space to keep Reddick.

Brandon isn't a shooter? 39% from the arc - that's better than all of Kawhi's seasons except 1.

IF Hart is still here, he needs to play the 2d role similar to what Chalmers did and what lebron try to get JR to do.

Any more jail time for KCP next year to screw up his game?

Personally, I think Stephenson will be out of the rotation.

Most of the shooting will come from the second unit: Mykhailiuk, Hart, Kuzma, and Ball (yes, Ball).

In the opening lineup, Pope, Ingram, and Deng will be expected to shoot over 35% from three.

They still need another combo guard shooter ...

... been beating the drum on O.J. Mayo for weeks now. He would help.

Long story short: As long as Stephenson is out of the rotation, they have just enough shooting, IMO. Signing O.J Mayo would add more shooting depth, however.

Mayo or Ian Clark fit the bill of what the Lakers should be looking for.

We were 29th in the NBA in 3 point shooting last year, we need more shooting
