The Mike D'Antoni-led Lakers are in the hunt for a shooting guard, and they may have found one in Utah.

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Lakers have been working to acquire Utah Jazz guard Raja Bell, who has been on the outs with his team since his minutes waned late last season. Bell has not been with the Jazz this season, instead working out in Florida as his agent and the team seek an amenable buyout solution or a trade. Bell enjoyed success under D'Antoni in Phoenix and has a good relationship with Kobe Bryant and Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak. The major hurdle would appear to be finding a trade that would work for both the Lakers and the Jazz.
