Lakers Have Interest In Xavier Henry

The Lakers officially announced the signing of Shawne Williams yesterday, but even if Williams earns a regular-season spot, the team should still have room for a couple more players. One potential target for L.A. is ex-Pelican Xavier Henry, according to Ramona Shelburne of, who tweets that the Lakers have a "level of interest" in Henry.

Henry, a 6'6" guard, remains unsigned after the Pelicans decided not to exercise the fourth-year option on his rookie contract. The Kansas product has yet to make a real impact in three NBA seasons with Memphis and New Orleans, averaging 4.5 PPG in 133 career contests. However, Henry was a lottery pick in 2010 and is still just 22 years old, so there's some potential upside there. If he were to sign with the Lakers or another team, I imagine he'd receive a non-guaranteed deal.

As the Lakers weigh camp options, one player they don't seem to be considering is Michael Beasley, according to Shelburne (via Twitter). Los Angeles has had interest in Beasley in the past, and reportedly came close to acquiring him at the 2012 trade deadline, leading to some speculation yesterday that he could be on the club's radar again. For now though, the Lakers appear to be looking elsewhere.
