Lakers Rumors: Team “leading suitors” for free agent Quincy Miller?

The Los Angeles Lakers may have their eye on free agent forward Quincy Miller.

According to Shams Charania from RealGM, Miller has had “several inquiries” since being waived by the Denver Nuggets earlier this week, and the Lakers are said to be the “leading suitor” to secure his services.

At 21, Miller is still a young prospect and would add some size to the team at 6’10”, though the purple and gold would have to waive a player in order to sign the Baylor product seeing as their roster is already at the NBA maximum of 15. Wayne Ellington and Ronnie Price are the two remaining Lakers on non-guaranteed deals, though it appears that both have played well enough to secure roster spots going forward.

Last season, Miller averaged 4.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 15.2 minutes per game. He was drafted by the Nuggets with the 38th overall pick in 2012.
