The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of one of the worst seasons in team history, and head into free agency with plenty of cap space and few players on their roster.
The team figures to be a big player in free agency, but according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News, are not looking to offer more than 1-2 year deals to the non-superstar free agents they are targeting:
Lakers like Kyle Lowry, Luol Deng, Trevor Ariza, Chandler Parsons. Lakers won't offer them more than 1-2 year deals, though

While the Lakers wanting to keep free cap space to make a run at Kevin Durant makes sense, it is unlikely the team will be able to convince one of the coveted free agents to sign with them on such a short deal.
