The Los Angeles Lakers had interest in signing 28-year-old forward Danuel House Jr., according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

House, 6-foot-7, carved out a career with the Houston Rockets beginning in 2018 as a 3-and-D forward. He hit 41.6% of his 3-pointers that year, though he never surpassed 40% again.

House averaged 4.8 points on 33.8% shooting overall and 29.4% from deep in 16 games this season with Houston, which led to his release as the team continues to get younger.

The New York Knicks ended up signing House to a 10-day deal, and the Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings also reportedly had interest.

The Lakers entered the season short on 3-and-D forwards with good size, and House would’ve helped. Recently, the Lakers picked up Stanley Johnson on a 10-day deal, though he has never been a reliable 3-point shooter.
