Kobe Bryant is confident the Los Angeles Lakers will improve their roster this summer, reports ESPN

The Lakers have had a tricky season and are expected to make a number of changes in the off season and Bryant, who is currently out injured, believes the management will do a good job improving the team. 

Speaking to reporters, he said: "I have all the confidence in the world that [management] can get the job done.

"I'm not concerned about it at all. They have the flexibility to do it and they have the room to be able to do it, and I'm sure they will make the right decisions from top to bottom."

Bryant also insisted that the right decisions will be made in the summer in order to put the team back in contention next season. 

He continued by saying: "What we have coming up this offseason with the cap space and what we have ahead of ourselves seems to be right in the Lakers' wheelhouse in terms of turning things around pretty quickly.

"When we've had summers like this, they have never really faltered. The have normally made really sound and excellent decisions that put us right back in contention. So I think this offseason is right in their wheelhouse."

Without Bryant in the team, the Lakers are currently in terrible form and have lost their last three matches. 

Their latest setback came in a 107-103 defeat to the Oklahoma City Thunder and they will now be hoping to get back to winning ways against the Houston Rockets on Thursday. 

However, they will come up against an extremely confident Houston Rockets team, who are on a hot winning streak after securing yet another victory against the Washington Wizards in their last outing.
