The Lakers could be looking to add depth in their frontcourt this Summer.

USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers could be interested in free agent veteran big man Kenyon Martin, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. Martin joined the New York Knicks late in the 2012-2013 season, averaging 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.

Other teams interested in Martin are: the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Spurs, Brooklyn Nets and Knicks, reports Broussard. Martin played for the Knicks last seaoson, the Clippers the season prior, and spent the first four seasons of his career with the Nets.

2013-2014 will be Martin's 14th season in the league. He spent much of last season out of the league but was added to the Knicks' frontcourt after injury issues with Rasheed Wallace and Marcus Camby.

The Lakers have not come to a verbal agreement with any free agents yet. Reports indicate that Los Angeles' priority is adding perimeter shooting at the small forward and shooting guard position, but they have also been linked to Byron Mullens. L.A. has made an "exploratory offer" to Martin's teammate with the Knicks, Chris Copeland.
