According to Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley, an anonymous NBA general manager recently told ESPN’s Chris Broussard that Kevin Love coming to play for the Lakers, in 2015 once he becomes a free agent, is a “100 percent certainty.”
If this rumor were to be true, it’s tough to see the Lakers signing Carmelo Anthony this offseason. While having Anthony and Love to go with a returning Kobe Bryant would be the most ideal situation, this would be highly unlikely under the new collective bargaining agreement.
If the Lakers don’t sign Anthony, but do sign Kevin Love, a scenario of Love, this year’s (hopefully) promising draft pick, and another 2015 free agent joining the Lakers is a likely scenario.
