The 2014 NBA free agency period has officially begun with the Los Angeles Lakers ready to try and right the ship with an enormous amount of cap space at their disposal.

The first moves the Lakers brass will make is a couple of phone calls to the representatives of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony to setup meetings, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

LeBron and Carmelo would ideally join Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles. If unable to land LeBron, who is the biggest name on the free agent market, the Lakers could try and pair Anthony and Pau Gasol with Kobe.

It remains to be seen if any other these scenarios are possible, but the Lakers brass will do everything within their power to grab the two best players available.
