REPORT: Lakers Have a 'High' Level of Interesting in Acquiring Terry Rozier

The Lakers are searching for answers after starting the 2022-23 season on a three game losing streak. Through three games, the Lakers have struggled with finding an offensive rhythm, however their defensive play has kept them in games and have given them a chance to win against the Clippers and Trail Blazers.

One solution the Lakers are reportedly looking at is trading for Hornets guard Terry Rozier, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. According to Charania, the Lakers’ interest in Rozier “remains high. The Lakers and Hornets reportedly “held discussions about a possible three-of-four team” over the summer, but Rozier’s “availability will be entirely predicted on the franchise’s direction for the future and its play as the season goes on.”

Acquiring Roizer could help the Lakers alleviate their deep shooting woes. The Lousiville product is a career 37.6 percent shooer from beyond the arc, this season he’s hitting triples at a 40 percent rate on 5.5 attempts per game. He’s also averaging 23.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game on 39.5 percent shooting from the field. Rozier’s tough play had helped Charlotte get off to a 2-1 start.

The Hornets are set to play the Knicks (1-1) on Wednesday.
