Lakers reportedly have shown interest in Seth Curry
LeBron James is trying to create himself a superteam like the Golden State Warriors have had the past few years, and he might be trying to get himself a Curry brother too.
James’ Los Angeles Lakers have shown interest in free agent Seth Curry, according to a report from the LA Times’ Brad Turner.
The Lakers have also reached out to the reps of free agent guard Seth Curry, per source. Curry is the type of long range shooter the Lakers want. He shot 45.6% from the field last season in Portland, 45% from three. He averaged 7.9 points in 74 games.

Seth, 28, has had trouble finding homes in the league, but his successful season with the Blazers has made him a desirable commodity. He averaged 7.9 points per game and made 45 percent of his threes.
A team that has James and Anthony Davis will need plenty of outside shooters who can knock down threes, making Curry a perfect candidate for them. The question is whether they will have the money for him especially if he receives offers elsewhere.
The Lakers are heavily involved in the pursuit of free agent Kawhi Leonard. They are also said to have interest in D’Angelo Russell and Patrick Beverley, which all depends on what happens with Leonard first.
