One of the upcoming free agents the Lakers have been linked to the past two seasons has been Kevin Love. While Love recently opted out of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he has indicated to them he will re-sign according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports:

While Love struggled and suffered a season-ending injury in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, the Cavaliers have already established themselves as contenders in the East for many seasons to come. Although many teams like the Lakers will still pursue Love, he has expressed his desire to remain in Cleveland with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving numerous times.

For the Lakers, there will be numerous frontcourt options available in free agency as they will have a projected $24 million in cap space. Los Angeles has reportedly moved up on LaMarcus Aldridge’s list and are planning to visit DeAndre Jordan at his Houston home.
