Lakers are possibly targeting F Matt Barnes to make a return with the team. Barnes played two seasons with the Lakers in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 season, but had injury issues in 2011 and inconsistent playing time under former Head Coach Mike Brown in 2012.

Barnes played very well off the bench for the Clippers last season, averaging over 10 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Barnes was also a former teammate of Dwight Howard in Orlando.
