The Lakers are currently have a logjam at the center position with the emergence of Tarik Black and Ivica Zubac, which leaves Timofey Mozgov as the odd man out.
But according to Mark Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet, the Lakers are interested in free agent big man Larry Sanders.
Lakers are currently meeting with former NBA center Larry Sanders, who hasn't played in the league since December 2014. He is 28 years old.

Sanders haven’t been in the NBA for a couple of years, but the athletic big man could prove to be a nice addition to any team. Sander last played for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2014-15 season where he averaged seven points and six rebounds. He took time off from the NBA to work on his mental health.
The Lakers meeting with Sanders could hint at them looking to move one of their centers. They Lakers currently have a full roster, and they would need to clear one spot if they decide to sign Sanders.
The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching, and there were some reports that the NBA Lakers could move one of their veteran players.
It will be interesting to see if the Lakers do in fact trade or add any player to their roster. The last time the Lakers made a trade was in 2014-15 season when they sent away Steve Blake for MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore.
