Report: Lakers will make Kemba Walker top target after Davis trade

Kemba Walker

The Los Angeles Lakers are getting Anthony Davis in the fold, but they know they’ll need more help to turn themselves into a championship contender. It appears they’re ready to pursue that help.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Lakers will make Kemba Walker a top target in free agency after acquiring Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Neither LeBron James nor Davis are elite perimeter shooters. Walker is more of a threat, a 35.7 percent career three-point shooter who has come close to 40 percent on occasion.

The Lakers know that they’ll need more firepower. They might prefer Kawhi Leonard, but there are signs that he would prefer the Clippers instead. Walker won’t be an easy pursuit either, as he’s given indications that he’d be perfectly comfortable staying right where he is. Perhaps the opportunity to play with James and Davis would change his mind.
