The Los Angeles Lakers have interest in free agent swingman Xavier Henry, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLA.com.
Lakers have a level of interest in Xavier Henry, from what I hear.

Henry, a third year guard/forward out of Kansas, spent the last two years of his career in New Orleans. He averaged 3.9 points on 41 percent shooting in 12.5 minutes a game for New Orleans before hitting the free agent market.
He was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies with the 12th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft but has since struggled to make his mark in the league. In January 2012, he was traded to New Orleans in a three team deal that included Memphis, New Orleans and Philadelphia.
The Lakers already have a full roster, so any contract with Henry would likely be a non-guaranteed training camp invitation.
