Christian Wood: Bet on yourself and double down .. -via Twitter @Chriswood_5 / July 11, 2023
Centers Christian Wood and Bismack Biyombo are in consideration for that 14th roster spot, according to team sources  not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Lakers had interest in Dario Saric before he signed with the Golden State Warriors earlier this week, those sources said. Pelinka clarified that Los Angeles is hoping to find a player that is different than Hayes from a skill-set perspective. -via The Athletic / July 10, 2023
Interestingly, the team reportedly sees Hayes playing the role Howard had that year, rather than being a clone of McGee. There have been whispers that the Lakers may end up signing Christian Wood in order to add a 5 who can stretch the floor. At 6-foot-9, Wood is a dependable 3-point shooter, but he has a reputation as lacking on the defensive end. But if they do end up acquiring that type of 5, it could open up the opportunity for Davis to start at power forward once again, just as he did in the 2019-20 season, at least hypothetically. -via Lakers Daily / July 10, 2023
