The Lakers GM Rob Pelinka a couple of weeks ago stated at the Summer League that the team is "actively" looking to add another big center to the roster for the 14th spot.

But nothing has happened on that front, now an NBA executive suggests the 6 times NBA All-Star Blake Griffin as a depth addition for the Lakers. Griffin is a Power Forward, not a center, but this potential signing could make Anthony Davis stay in the center position and make Blake help as a PF.

“Blake Griffin is still out there and I think his best fit is the Lakers,” the executive told Evan Massey of NBA Analysis Network. “He would be a perfect depth addition for L.A.,” Said the NBA executive, with information via the NBA Analysis Network.

The Lakers have been linked to Griffin, who has also played for the Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, and Los Angeles Clippers, in the past. Following Griffin’s buyout with the Pistons in 2021, the Lakers expressed some interest in the six-time All-Star. Then, the team was rumored to be a possible destination for Griffin last offseason, but he ended up signing with Boston.

What Griffin can bring to the Lakers in the next season

Griffin, 34, is past his prime, but he could be a solid depth piece for a Lakers team that is looking to win an NBA title in the 2023-24 campaign. The Lakers came close to the NBA Finals last season, losing to the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.
