Top 5 Pairings for Kobe Bryant Via 2014 Free Agency Class

It’s no secret amongst NBA fans that next year’s free agent class has the potential to be a very loaded class, filled with many youngster studs, current top-notch players and savvy veterans all with one ultimate goal on their minds: to win an NBA championship.

It’s also no secret that the Los Angeles Lakers will have more money to spend on those free agents than almost any other team in the league, other than the Utah Jazz.

With this being said, one of the reasons why the Lakers will have so much money to spend is because one of their all-time greats, Kobe Bryant, is set to become a free agent following the completion of this upcoming season.

The chances of Bryant leaving the Lakers are about as high as the chances that I have of playing an NBA game during any point of my life.

If Bryant agrees to take a pay cut, which is a reasonable expectation considering his age and desire to celebrate another championship victory, the Lakers should have enough money to sign two additional superstars.

The combinations of players the Lakers could sign during the 2014 offseason are endless; however, I have come up with a list of combinations that I think would make the most sense for the Lakers.

Note: I made sure to not use any player twice on this list and I did not use any players who are virtual locks to stay with the current teams, e.g. Tim Duncan, Paul George and a few others.
