FWIW, my understanding is that if the Lakers have cap space, Kevin Love signing here in '15 is a foregone conclusion. I've heard this very strongly communicated by people that have ties to the Lakers and people that have ties to UCLA.
It's still a rumor and all that that implies regarding it being true, but it's worth noting. Signing Melo this offseason would pretty much kill the chances of that happening though. We'll see.
Then Durant's the obvious target in '16 when Kobe expires.
