Lakers To Make ‘Hard Run’ At Bledsoe, Dragic Next Summer

The Lakers have long had a hole at the point guard position, but there looks to be some very intriguing options coming down the line very soon.

Rajon Rondo is apparently trying to get out of Boston, but the Lakers could also make a run at current Phoenix Suns guards Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe, both of whom could be unrestricted free agents next summer, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

The Lakers, for example, are just one team league sources say would likely make a hard run at both of them, based on the premise that the Suns couldn’t afford the cost of paying both at that point, theoretically making either Bledsoe or Dragic gettable.

It is no guarantee that either of them will be free agents next summer. Dragic is the more likely as he can opt-out of his contract, and will likely stand to make more money if he has another season similar to last year.

Bledsoe on the other hand, is a restricted free agent right now, but he and the Suns have been unable to come to terms on a long-term contract. He is contemplating signing a one-year qualifying offer which would then make him unrestricted next summer as well.

The Lakers will be loaded with cap space next summer, so expect the team to be in the mix for every major name in free agency.
