Rumor: Los Angeles Lakers Considering Two Centers

The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to make the final touches on their roster before the March 25th trade deadline and by the looks of things they've turned their attention to the buy-out market for some help. According to reports the team is very interested in signing either Andre Drummond or DeMarcus Cousins.

Drummond is certainly superior over Cousins as he's 27 and playing at a high level. That was until the Cleveland Cavaliers decided to sit him while they worked the trade market, which seems like complete garbage at this point. Drummond should still be playing significant minutes as he was averaging 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. His $28.8 million salary will be hard to trade given the NBA's salary cap world, so the expectation is a buy-out is coming soon.

As for Cousins the Houston Rockets released the Kentucky product after an up and down 25 games so far this season. He's averaged 9.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, while putting up six double-doubles including one night scoring 28-17-5.

The Lakers currently sit 24-13 on the season, good for 3rd in the Western Conference and the team will be busy scrolling the buy-out market over the next few weeks for finishing touches on what they hope is another championship roster.
