The Los Angeles Lakers had a busy off-season, making headlines with the addition of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and since then the team has continued to struggle, in what is a disappointing season thus far.

With their recent struggles, the Lakers are now in search of ways to correct the problem, and now it is rumored that the team has an interest in Sacramento Kings guard Tryke Evans as the solution.

The fourth year swing guard is reportedly on the trading block and the Lakers are one of the teams interested in acquiring his skill. Other teams include the Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies and the Denver Nuggets.

In an article posted on SBNation.com, Evans "wouldn't be too broken up about it if the Kings traded him prior to the Feb. 21 deadline."

Evans is in the last year of his current contract and has taken rehab to his sore left knee slowly, in hopes to not have a setback when playing for a new contract.

"Definitely," he said. "That's why I sat out so many games. I wasn't going to come back until I was ready, near 100 percent. You have to think about that. But the knee feels good now, it doesn't hurt. I just want to get back out there and start playing like I can."
