On ESPN's daily NBA podcast, Ric Bucher says the Lakers called the Nets about the availability of Devin Harris. Bucher wasn't asked what the Lakers were offering or how the Nets responded, but he did provide the Lakers' rationale for asking: LA needs speed and youth. "[It] says to me they are worried about their perimeter defense," said Bucher, noting they will face quick guards in the playoffs.
