The big questions of this NBA offseason is where Kevin Love will land and if he’ll be traded now or later by the Minnesota Timberwolves.
One of the long rumored destinations for Love has been the Los Angeles Lakers but the once glitzy Lakers are now a dingy shell of their former selves and hardly a free agent destination anymore.
Bill Ingram from Basketball Insiders points out that not only are the Lakers chances of landing Love no better than the Wolves, they may be lower on the pecking order than Minnesota as well.
It’s entirely possible that the Lakers would fail to offer Love any better shot at winning big than he currently has with the Timberwolves. The death of Jerry Buss has left the Lakers in limbo, and the next generation of Lakers management has their work cut out for them in their quest to restore the Lakers’ mystique.
