With intentions to bolster their backcourt and provide a veteran presence around their young roster, the Lakers “have shown interest” in free agent guard Rodney Stuckey, according to a league source familiar with the situation.
The Lakers have had preliminary discussions surrounding Stuckey but have not scheduled any meetings as both parties have evaluated other options, the source said. Still, the 31-year-old Stuckey finds the Lakers appealing for several reasons.
Sam Amick: One name to watch among teams seeking reliable bench help: Rodney Stuckey. The market for the veteran guard is strong. Several teams in mix.
Nate Taylor: Nate McMillan said he had the upmost respect for Rodney Stuckey. McMillan wouldn’t discuss Lance Stephenson since a deal isn’t finalized.
The Indiana Pacers agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract with Lance Stephenson after waiving injured guard Rodney Stuckey, league sources told The Vertical.
The Pacers had until April 10 to release Stuckey and avoid paying the $7 million for his 2017-18 player option. C.J. Miles (2017-18) and Monta Ellis (2018-19) share similar clauses in their contracts. The Pacers’ front office expressed contrition about releasing Stuckey at this point in the season, sources said, and believes both sides benefited from his nearly three seasons in Indiana.
Stuckey planned to opt out of his contract at the end of the season, sources said, but the Pacers needed to make the decision to open a roster spot to help their depleted bench. The team announced Tuesday that guard Glenn Robinson III (calf) will be re-evaluated late next week, and center Al Jefferson (ankle) will miss at least two weeks.
Bobby Marks: Although Stuckey has a $7m cap hit, he is only owed $535k left on his contract. Could be financial savings for a team below the floor.
Shams Charania: The Pacers are waiving guard Rodney Stuckey, league sources tell @The Vertical. Indiana had April 10 date to release before Stuckey’s option.
Scott Agness: Pacers have waived Rodney Stuckey, a source told VigilantSports.com.
Shams Charania: Stuckey’s expected to recover from patellar strain within few weeks. Pacers dealing with injuries to key reserves, could use healthy player.
Indiana free agent Rodney Stuckey has agreed in principle on a three-year, $21 million contract to re-sign with the Pacers, league sources told RealGM.
J. Michael: Just told that Rodney Stuckey, who i reported earlier as a player of interest, “very much a possibility”. Stuckey made $1.2M last yr for #Pacers so he’s gonna want a nice raise probably more than biannual exception #WizardsTalk #NBA @CSNWizards
Vincent Goodwill: Bulls not yet in on Rodney Stuckey. Four contenders for his services so far. Wonder if he’ll wait the market out to get some MLE money
Recently when asked about the season, Bird, who will just as soon use the term “good little player” to describe a pro, could not bridle his enthusiasm about Stuckey. “I want him back, too. He was great. Great worker. He worked as hard as anybody. He lifted just about every game. Every thing we asked him to do at the beginning of the year, he did it. He was fantastic,” Bird said. “He knows how much I want him, I told him that at the end of the year.”
Stuckey has a desire to be in a competing situation again next season, but will still prioritize a possible return to Indiana where there is strong mutual interest. Stuckey scored 12.6 points in 26.4 minutes per game last season, flourishing in Frank Vogel’s offensive system and providing stability as a starter or reserve.

Karl-Anthony Towns remains in concussion protocol and will not play for Minnesota against Milwaukee, a night after missing a game for the first time in his career. The All-Star forward was in a car accident Thursday and didn’t play Friday in New York, ending his streak of 303 consecutive games started. He traveled with the Timberwolves for the game in Milwaukee on Saturday, rather than return to Minnesota, but hadn’t been cleared to play again.
Being unable to play has troubled Towns, coach Ryan Saunders said. “People asked me if he cared about his [consecutive games] streak,” Saunders said. “He hasn’t and didn’t mention one thing along those lines. It was all about being there for his teammates and contributing. He even had somebody run out and make sure he could get a sport coat so he was dressed properly on the bench so he could be there with his teammates. That says a lot about Karl.”
