While times are currently rough in Laker land, the future looks bright. In an article from ESPN’s Chris Broussard, he speaks of a GM who told him that Minnesota Timberwolves big man Kevin Love is a guaranteed Laker.

"As for the Kevin Love-to-New York rumors, most executives believe Love is destined for the Lakers when he becomes a free agent in 2015. “That’s a 100 percent certainty,” one GM told me."

The Love-to-LA rumors are not new and have long been rumbling with Love’s impatience and anger with the Timberwolves franchise growing bigger and bigger. Love is not scheduled to become a free agent until 2015, leaving the Lakers one year away from his possible arrival.

With all the cap space this summer, the Lakers could be left in a lingo of whether to spend big on a free agent now or wait on Love for the future.
