One of the most promising young players in the NBA today will become a restricted free agent this summer with the Los Angeles Lakers potentially ready to make a large offer in order to acquire him.

Eric Bledsoe will be allowed to sign offer sheets this summer as a restricted free agent and the Lakers might show strong interest in signing the up-and-coming guard according to ESPN Insider Chris Broussard:

Speaking of the Suns, I was told the Los Angeles Lakers might go hard after Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe, who is out the rest of the season with a knee injury. Bledsoe will be a restricted free agent next summer, but I’m told the Lakers might be willing to overpay him to pry him away from Phoenix.

With the Suns able to match any offer given to their star player, Phoenix will likely be able to retain Bledsoe, but the Lakers might be willing to go all out in order to bring in the dynamic combo guard formerly of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Along with Bledsoe becoming a potential target for the Lakers in the off-season, Kevin Love continues to get linked to the storied franchise. Although a trade is highly unlikely with the Lakers having nothing that interests the Minnesota Timberwolves, Love may simply join the Lakers in 2015 as a free agent.
