MIAMI — In case you missed it, here’s Mitch Kupchak’s take on the possibility of adding to the roster for the stretch run, courtesy of Vinny, who filled in for me for the last two days:
“Kupchak acknowledged recently released San Antonio guard Michael Finley is on the Lakers’ radar. “But I don’t anticipate any roster moves at this point,” Kupchak said. The Lakers have a spare roster spot to add a player, and with injuries keeping Luke Walton and Sasha Vujacic sidelined, there would appear to be a need for reinforcements.
“Finley would provide a veteran presence, someone who can shoot and defend, but for the time being the Lakers are not inclined to add him. We will continue to monitor the situation, and we are always looking for ways to improve,” Kupchak said. “But at this point, we don’t anticipate anything.”
