The Lakers aren't eyeing any free agent frontcourt players right now, a source tells Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com (on Twitter).  General Manager Mitch Kupchak & Co. want to see how much Dwight Howard is able to give them with his shoulder injury before they invest in any outside help.

Kenyon MartinGreg Oden, and Louis Amundson are among the more prominent free agent big men out there.  The Lakers have been linked to the 35-year-old for several months as they have battled injuries.  

K-Mart spent last season with the Staples Center's other tenants, averaging 5.2 PPG and 4.3 RPG in 22.4 minutes.  Between the Lakers' reluctance to sign an available big man and Rasheed Wallace's improving health in New York, Martin may not find employment anytime soon.
