Rob Pelinka on the narrative that the Lakers don't have enough perimeter shooting around LeBron James: "There's been this kind of surge of, hey, where are the shooters? To me that's a little bit of a misnomer... When we looked at the free agent list, the elite shooters, guys who have had max deals as shooters are in the 38-42% range in 3-point shooting. I'm talking elite shooters... Josh Hart shot 40%. Brandon Ingram shot 40%. KCP [Kentavious Caldwell-Pope] had a career year at almost 39% and I feel like he's gonna have an even better year. LeBron shot 37%, Kyle Kuzma 37%. So just because we didn't sign sort of the poster child shooter that is a specialist and can just make shots, we felt like we assembled a cast of guys that can really shoot the ball but also defend and be versatile... Also, if you really study LeBron and Rajon Rondo and the way he plays, these guys are so smart at creating angles and passing [that] the shooting windows for our other players are gonna be bigger so that's gonna increase their percentages. We feel very confident in how we landed here."

Pelinka: Lakers designed to combat Warriors
