article imageNBA Rumors: Rudy Gay headed to LA Lakers?

By Larry Seely     May 4, 2014 in Sports
Los Angeles - With only three players under contract for the 2014-15 NBA season, the LA Lakers should look much different on the court then the mess that resembled a team this past year.
GM Mitch Kupchak will have room under the salary cap to add some quality talent and with a top-9 pick in the upcoming draft, maybe this squad can send Kobe Bryant off with another title before he retires.
With a great group of free agents available this summer, many expect a player like Carmelo Anthony or perhaps LeBron James do wear the purple and gold next season, but expect a younger player that can help this franchise for a few more years, not just a one a done job.
Rudy Gay is one of the top small forwards that could become available. This squad has lacked an offensive talent at the position for a number of years and at 27, Gay is the type of talent the team can build around when Bryant hangs up the sneakers.
Note the Lakers could have about $20 million in space assuming they get a top 4 pick.
Rumors are also on social media about the pending departure of Pau Gasol and if true, this team will need another scoring option in the front court. Gay averaged 20 points and six rebounds with Sacramento last season and a move to Tinsel Town could make him a household name among NBA fans and a big hit in Southern California.
