The Lakers have been linked to free agent guard/forward Xavier Henry, according to the Twitter feeds of two ESPN Los Angeles reporters.
Hearing the same. Set to be a camp invitee. RT @ramonashelburne Lakers have a level of interest in Xavier Henry, from what I hear.

The 6-foot-6 Henry, 22, was originally drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2010 with the 12th overall pick. The Grizzlies traded Henry to the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) in January 2012.
Henry has some shown some ability as a defender. Through three seasons he's averaged 4.5 points a game on 40.3% shooting.
