Rumor: Lakers called Timberwolves regarding the availability of Dante Cunningham

on

The Lakers recently contacted the Minnesota Timberwolves to gauge the availability of 25-year-old forward Dante Cunningham, according to 1500 ESPN

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak is said to have called the Wolves recently about forward Dante Cunningham. But with a reasonable, $2.1 million team option for 2013-14, Cunningham won’t be easy to get.

Cunningham is averaging 7.4 points and 5.5 rebounds in just under 25 minutes per game this season.

The 6’8″ power forward would give the Lakers some much needed depth in their front court, though, as the report states, the Wolves value Cunningham’s low salary.

It’s worth noting that now is the time of the year when teams begin to canvass the league to weigh up their options as the February trade deadline nears.

Kupchak said yesterday that the team won’t be very active near the deadline due to their lack of options, but that won’t stop him calling around and trying to improve the team as they continue to fight their way back into the playoff race.
