Three-point shooting was one of the Lakers' biggest weaknesses throughout the 2023-24 NBA season. Los Angeles tallied just 11.8 threes made (24th) on 31.4 attempts per game (28th), revealing the need to add another shooter to the mix.

If GM Pelinka is looking to give first-year head coach J.J. Redick another sniper from the wing, Reggie Bullock is the perfect low-cost option.

Entering his 12th NBA campaign this fall, Bullock has established himself as a reliable 3-and-D player. He leaves it all on the floor every night and isn't afraid to stretch the court, having averaged 1.6 threes made on 4.1 attempts (38.5%) across 556 career regular-season games. He's the type of player Redick could call upon when the Lakers need a crucial three-point play.

Some Lakers fans might be hesitant following Bullock's underwhelming showing with the Houston Rockets last year. He was limited to an average of 9.5 minutes in 44 games without a start as he put up 2.2 PTS and 1.7 rebounds. It wasn't all bad, though, as he still shot 40.3% from deep on 7.8 tries per 100 possessions.

He also previously played with Redick, who knows what the 33-year-old wing can do.

The fact that The Athletic's sources indicate that "multiple playoff teams" are pursuing Bullock shows that he's better than last season's results indicate. He might not win the Lakers any games on his own, but he's the type of player who can make a lineup that much more difficult to face come playoff time. For that, L.A. must target him.
