Lakers Focused On Pursuit Of LeBron, Carmelo In 2014
The Los Angeles Lakers are focused on signing LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in the 2014 offseason, according to sources.
The Lakers have refused to commit to contracts that extend beyond the 13-14 season to maximize cap space.
One source described the plan as "realistic", while another calls it "far-fetched at this point."
Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could also become free agents, while Luol Deng, Danny Granger, Andrew Bogut and Dirk Nowitzki will be unrestricted free agents.
"It's all wishful thinking at this point," a league source with knowledge of the situation said. "Teams are doing more wishing than LeBron is wanting right now.
"It's not about where LeBron wants to go [to win]. He already has two rings. If LeBron moved to Reno, teams would come to him."
