The Lakers need someone who can score.
Personally, I think Pierce is a better fit than say Ray Allen because Mike Brown is preaching toughness and defense and Pierce is that type of guy.
It would also give the Lakers another killer besides Kobe Bryant.
The Lakers reportedly are trying to find a way to land Paul Pierce. Not sure yet, what they are willing to give up. But again, it won’t be an easy deal to make. The Celtics love him, obviously.
The Lakers still have a glaring need at the point guard position, but trying to acquire a Pierce or Ray Allen would be a step in the right direction if they are trying to make a run this year at a title.
