Lakers News And Rumors Recap: Lakers Targeting Love, Durant


[new_royalslider id=”209″]

The possibility of the Los Angeles Lakers making a run this season into the postseason are slim. Because of the depleted roster due to injuries, the team sits well below the .500 mark, and is currently on pace to have one of the worst records in their franchise and the NBA.

But despite the unfortunate turn of events, it looks as if the team is already planning their road back to the top of the NBA.

With general manager Mitch Kupchak stressing that the team does have a plan, it appears the Lakers may be targeting both Kevin Love and Kevin Durant when they become free agents in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Having said that, every team in the league will be eyeing these marquee players once they hit the open market.

Lakers guard Nick Young finally made his return to the team last night against the Brooklyn Nets, but admitted that he’s still feeling pain in his knee.

Last night’s game against the Nets also marked the first game for Nets center Jason Collins. One of his biggest supporters, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol had some kind words to say about him before the game as well.
