Drastic changes appear to be on the horizon for the Los Angeles Lakers with the team planning to build a new training center according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

The team has nine games left in a forgettable season that might go down as the worst in franchise history. Despite ending on a disappointing note, the Lakers will have the cap room to be big players in free agency and will have a high pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft.

So along with a state-of-the-art practice facility being built in the near future, the team will try and make the right moves in the off-season to get the franchise back on track. There will be a lot of pressure on the team to rebuild quickly, but if any franchise is able to do it, it’s the Lakers, especially with a new facility to help draw free agents to Los Angeles.
