The Los Angeles Lakers are one of several teams that have discussed signing free agent center Ryan Hollins, reports Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times. Pincus notes Hollins revealed this bit of information during an interview on Sirius XM NBA, and that the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls are among the other suitors who have inquired in the former UCLA Bruin.
Hollins spent the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, averaging 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game. The Lakers could use additional center depth and are expected to play an undersized frontcourt with Jordan Hill and Ed Davis playing the majority of the minutes. Robert Sacre will likely fill in as the third-string center.
The Lakers have been working out players leading up to training camp, where they can bring up to 20 players. Los Angeles will likely add additional players into the mix soon, and currently has 13 players on guaranteed contracts heading into the 2014-2015 season, leaving two available roster spots.
