article imageNBA Rumors: Gordon Hayward headed to LA Lakers?

By Larry Seely     May 8, 2014 in Sports
Los Angeles - There's no doubt this summer is very important to the LA Lakers as they look to rebuild the proud franchise. Kobe Bryant would like to win another NBA title before he retires and roster moves are necessary to make that happen.
Luckily the front office has a top-10 pick in next months draft and the money under the salary cap to make a big signing.
GM Mitch Kupchak must first find a new head coach for the team, but rumors on possible free agent signings have already hit the Internet. The latest from Bleacher Report has suggested the purple and gold go after Gordon Hayward of Utah.
The 24-year-old has become one of the most versatile young players in the game. At 6'8" he has the size advantage on shooting guards in the league, but also possesses the ball handling skills to create problems if playing small forward.
Hayward would be a great wing player, creating more scoring opportunities for others on the team, but also a player that could play the point if needed. While he might not be the big name fans of the LA Lakers expect, he is the type of player that could make this team an NBA Playoff contender next season and young enough to become the foundation of this squad for the next 6-8 years.
