Kevin Love and the Lakers have been linked for months now. With Love set to become a free agent in the summer of 2015 and Love’s apparent discontent with the Minnesota Timberwolves, rumors are sure to continue to fly.
Things are sure to get interesting now that Love has apparently told the Timberwolves that he will exercise his early termination option after next season. With that lingering over their heads, the team is now feeling pressure to consider trade options for the All-Star. The Lakers are sure to be one of many teams lining up with their best offer.
Of course the Lakers still need a new head coach. One popular name that has popped up is former point guard Derek Fisher, whose name has also come up for the New York Knicks head coach position.
Fisher’s current coach with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Scott Brooks, believes that Fisher would make a great coach. He also believes that Fisher coaching the New York Knicks next season would make a lot of sense.
