1. Scoring

Despite his age, James is still a consistent scorer. Davis, who is eight years younger than his fellow All-Star, also brings high-caliber scoring to the table. After that, L.A.’s offensive burst trails off. Only two other Lakers, Kyle Kuzma and Dion Waiters, averaged over ten points per game this season.

Kuzma struggled in the team’s evolving offense, averaging a career-low 12.8 points per game in 2019. He only connected on 43.6% of his shots as well, which marked another career-low. Meanwhile, Waiters only spent seven games with Los Angeles. He averaged 11.9 points per game but only made 42.5% of his total shots and 23.3% of his threes.

While Avery Bradley delivered in some big moments during the regular season, he also scored fewer than five points in 12 of his 49 appearances. Danny Green’s usually strong three-point touch failed him in the bubble. Green finished the season with eight points per game and a below career average 36.7 completion percentage from deep.

In 59 games, Dragic averaged 16.2 points per game and scored 953 total points. Both of those numbers fall between Kuzma and Los Angeles’ two stars. Dragic also played some of the most efficient basketball of his career. The Dragon connected on 44.1% of his shots and 36.7% of his three-pointers. He’s knocking down threes with the same accuracy as Green while providing starting-caliber playmaking.

The Lakers desperately need depth and more talent coming off the bench. Dragic doesn’t offer much on the defensive end, but he provides everything Los Angeles needs offensively.
