The LA Lakers are on their worst run for nearly thirty years and it doesn't look like picking up anytime soon. So with rebuilding high on the list, it looks as though head office already have their eyes set on a couple of targets, Eric Bledsoe and Kevin Love.

ESPN's NBA Insider Chris Broussard has delivered his verdict on the Lakers future roster and said those two players were front and center. 

Eric Bledsoe once played in Los Angeles for the Clippers prior to them acquiring Chris Paul, but he may be on his way back there this summer. 

The Phoenix Sun is a free agent at the end of the season - he narrowly missed out on being named in this - and the Lakers could be looking at making a serious run for the point guard.

LA aren't afraid to over pay to get their man and will make a real show of testing how much the Suns want to keep their one. It may well turn into a big old game of chicken.

Kevin Love on the other hand isn't available till 2015, but it is no surprise to anyone that he is unhappy in Minnesota and how the Timberwolves aren't improving like he wanted. 

An unnamed NBA general manager reportedly told  Broussard that he believes, with 100 percent certainty, that Love will be wearing purple and gold in the summer of 2015.

Love really wants to get out of the mid-west and if the Lakers are willing then it could be a match made in heaven.
