Ranking Los Angeles Lakers’ Most Believable Free-Agency Rumors

Rumor season is upon us, and while the Los Angeles Lakers are as polarizing as any team in the NBA, free agency has been relatively quiet for the group from Tinseltown. 

The reason for this, as B/R's Kevin Ding told Adam Lefkoe in March, is that "they're going to hold off until 2015 free agency, in all likelihood [...]." Recent developments have potentially changed that narrative—but more on that later.

As for now, the Lakers aren't getting too deeply involved in the free-agent circus. There's plenty of chatter around the Association to pique fans' interests, but with a potentially quiet summer ahead, the start to July has brought a few rumors worth considering—and a whole lot worth putting to bed early.


*All rumors are current as of July 4 at 2:00 a.m. ET.
