RUMOR: Kevin Durant Headed To Lakers In 2016?

Kevin Durant is the reigning MVP of the league and will be one of the most sought-after free agents in the Summer of 2016.

He has said numerous times how much he enjoys being in Oklahoma City, but former New York Post columnist Peter Vecsey believes that if Durant does leave, it would be for Los Angeles as he said on CLNS Radio:

I say if Durant goes anywhere I look for him to go to the Lakers because they’re going to have a tremendous amount of money to give him. Kobe will be on the way out at that point and they won’t have anybody. A guy like him might want to start with the Lakers, or maybe he might want to go a team where he can win a championship.

The Lakers are surely going to do everything in their power to get Durant to Los Angeles, much like they put the full court press on Carmelo Anthony this summer. As of right now, the only players who will still be on the roster when 2016 rolls around are Nick Young and Julius Randle.

Depending on what the Lakers do next summer, the team could have enough money to offer Durant and another player maximum deals. Needless to say, the Lakers will roll out the red carpet for Durant when that time comes.

The Lakers have always been a team built around stars. Kobe Bryant could very well be gone by that time, and Kevin Durant would be the perfect person to succeed him.
