Lakers Rumors: Team Planning LeBron James Run In 2014

With Dwight Howard gone and the Lakers financially handcuffed, the team is already looking ahead to the summer of 2014. With everybody not named Steve Nash off the books, the team will be left with copious amounts of cap space and money to spend. Not coincidentally, that is the same summer that players like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh will be up for grabs. So, in typical Laker fashion, they’re looking to add some big names.

One of those names, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld, is James, the back-to-back NBA Finals and regular season MVPs.

Now, this might be a bit farfetched for now, considering James has found so much success in Miami and probably won’t be departing anytime soon.

Still, the fact that the team is even contemplating guys like this means they’re confident in their ability to lure high-priced free agents, something many pundits have claimed they will no longer be successful at doing after Howard’s departure.

So, for the next year, prepare for all sorts of rumors involving the Lakers and big-name players that may or may not actually be interested in coming to Los Angeles.
