NBA News Roundup, Sunday, April 7th: Kevin Love linked to the Lakers, Hall of Fame Inductees announced and more
Kevin Love linked to the Lakers
After a difficult season, the Los Angeles Lakers are understood to be targeting Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis this summer. However, they will face intense competition to land both players, and Matt Burke of Metro Sports is reporting that the Lakers could be forced to turn their attention to Love:
Another team that could be interested in landing Love is the Lakers, given the LeBron James connection. If Rob Pelinka and Magic Johnson strike out with some of the top tier free agency, they may have no choice but to look to the trade market where Love will be one of the biggest names available.
Love previously played alongside LeBron James for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and in 2016, the duo played a key role in helping the franchise end their long wait to win a first NBA championship.
