The Lakers are reportedly interested in Chandler Parsons according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
Just what they need — another ballhandler with questionable defense. The Lakers could be desperate to get some big names so they can build up their street cred as a free agency destination, but these will be backwards moves so they need to think long and hard about the low-hanging fruit. The Grizzlies are also interested in Parsons and they make a bit more sense, especially if they lose Mike Conley in free agency and need another ballhandler.
