Los Angeles Lakers: 5 Candidates to Replace Mitch Kupchak as GM

It was recently reported, Mitch Kupchak may be leaving his position as general manager of the Los Angeles Lakers.

And while the reports are nothing more than talk at this point, I think some Los Angeles Lakers fans hope they are true, this writer included.

After all, Kupchak traded Lamar Odom away for almost nothing.  Yes, Odom demanded a trade. But come on Mitch, would you have jumped off a bridge if he told you to?

Also, before the Lakers acquired Pau Gasol in 2008, Kupchak nearly became the GM responsible for running Kobe Bryant out of town after Kobe demanded to be traded in 2007.

In the following slides, you will find five candidates to replace Kupchak as G.M. of the Lakers.

I am in no way saying the people in the following slides have been rumored as Kupchak's successor. Mitch could very well end up being in the Lakers’ front office for the next decade—holy smokes, let’s hope not.
