The Los Angeles Lakers continue to hover around the .500 mark as they go through the growing pains of building team chemistry. But could a midseason acquisition be exactly what they need?

The Lakers are reportedly in the mix for Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner, who has made headlines of late after expressing his displeasure with his current situation.

Via Lakers Daily:

“I’ve heard there’s been some talks with the Lakers, previously Charlotte checked in several times,” Pacers insider Scott Agness said during a podcast episode in reference to Indiana’s talks with other teams about Turner.

It's probably not a stretch to assume Lakers GM Rob Pelinka was doing his due diligence in inquiring about the Pacers big man. But with limited assets to offer in return, it's unclear just how feasible a potential deal would be to actually manifest itself.

Still, the addition of Turner would definitely be intriguing. While it would force Anthony Davis back to the power forward spot and back to a double-big lineup, Turner is a force in protecting the rim and provides a young, mobile big man to patrol the paint as the other stars do the heavy lifting.

He currently leads the league in blocks per game by a wide margin with his 2.7 average. Turner has also turned himself into an elite big man threat from the three-point line. He's shooting just a shade under 40 percent on 4.7 attempts per game from distance.

If the right deal comes along for the Lakers to acquire Myles Turner via trade, they made need to give it a long, hard look.
