Adding LeBron James to the L.A. Lakers' roster was a huge move for Magic Johnson and the front office, but they still want and need more. In order to compete with the likes of the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, and other Western Conference contenders, the team is trying to bring more help to the "Lakeshow." One of the latest Lakers rumors indicates that they'll be meeting with NBA free agent Tyreke Evans in an attempt to bring him on board with LeBron, Lonzo, and the 2018-19 team. There are a few other options out there they may be considering as well.

Lakers to meet with Evans

The LeBron James signing [VIDEO] seems just about as official as can be.

Next up on the "to do" list for Magic, Rob Pelinka, and the Lakers' front office is having a discussion with one of the top remaining free agents, Tyreke Evans. Bleacher Report indicated (via ESPN's Chris Haynes) that Evans was scheduled for that meeting on Monday (July 2). That comes just a day after he met with the Oklahoma City Thunder, another Western Conference team interested in him. The Golden State Warriors have also expressed interest, and then there's that Philadelphia 76ers team, which hasn't made many moves, yet.

For anyone quick to dismiss Tyreke Evans as a Lakers free agent target, several of his stats last season make the case for them pursuing him.

He averaged 19.4 points per game with the Memphis Grizzlies this past season. That's the most Evans has averaged since his rookie season when he won the Rookie of the Year Award. He consistently had over five boards and five assists per game as well.

Evans also was a near-40 percent shooter from long range last season. While he might not be expected to score quite that much, he'd certainly add depth to the Lakers' bench or starting lineup, depending on how he's implemented. He's also got veteran experience in the league which is what it appears the Lakers are trying to bring to this roster for King James.

Parker, Cousins are also available

As mentioned by multiple sources including the PhillyVoice website, Jabari Parker is also among the top NBA free agents left this summer. He's been a member of the Milwaukee Bucks since his rookie season and still has a lot of upside for the right roster. He may end up with a team that is much more in need of a possible future star. A concern with Parker is the fact that he missed 51 games due to injury last season, and 31 the season before that.

Still, he's shown in the 2016-17 season that he's capable of becoming a future star. Parker averaged 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and a steal per game.

There's also DeMarcus Cousins [VIDEO], who has been mentioned in Lakers' rumors. Since Paul George signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder for another four years, it means he won't be in L.A. with LeBron any time soon. However, Cousins is a player, that if healthy, could help contribute to making the Lakers even more of a threat in the West.

LeBron has some talent on the roster as it is. There are younger players like Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, but also new additions like Warriors' champion Javale McGee and rival player Lance Stephenson. It makes it seem the front office is now committed to giving LeBron an even better roster than he had in Cleveland. Having LeBron as a promotional strategy to attract other free agents certainly helps.

With that said, if the L.A. Lakers could add Cousins, it's their best free agent move, but adding Evans or Parker certainly wouldn't hurt them in their championship pursuit next season. The only thing that will be of concern is that all three players' injury histories raise some red flags but the gamble could be worth it.
