3. Torrey Craig

Torrey Craig could be a potential low-cost, high-reward option for the Lakers if they don’t want to spend a ton of money on the wing in free agency.

The 33-year-old forward has a $2.8 million player option for the 2024-25 season with the Bulls, but there’s a strong chance that he will decline it to become a free agent. Craig only played in 53 games this season because of a foot injury that sidelined him for 8-10 weeks.

The 6-foot-5 forward averaged 5.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game. However, he shot 43 percent from the field and 39.2 percent from the field. Craig is a solid replacement for Taurean Prince, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

Prince averaged 8.9 points and 2.9 assists in 27 minutes per game. The veteran forward could get a bigger bag in free agency from other teams looking for wing depth after making $4.5 million this season.
