Could Lakers Bring Back Robert Horry?

Mikki Moore might be a good fit for the Lakers, adding depth and brawn for the stretch run. Robert Horry also might be a nice addition, adding a wealth of experience.
The Lakers have an open roster spot after trading backup center Chris Mihm to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday for a future draft pick.

They aren’t linked to either Moore, who was released this week by the Sacramento Kings, or Horry, a former Laker, San Antonio Spur and Houston Rocket.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson declined to say whether the team was interested in either player, but did not rule out the possibility of signing a veteran for the stretch run.

"We keep that for a reason," Jackson said before the Lakers played the New Orleans Hornets on Friday at Staples Center.
