Who Should the Lakers Target in the Offseason?

NBA365 Productions@@BR_NBASenior Writer IIJune 4, 2013

The Los Angeles Lakers have a long summer ahead of them. 

After losing their star player, Kobe Bryant to injury, the team imploded in the playoffs, leaving fans uncertain of what this roster will look like in the following year.

Kobe Bryant will be back next year but no one knows when or how he will respond after having Achilles surgery. Pau Gasol only has one year remaining on his contract, but there too, lies uncertainty; he could be used as trade bait. Then you have Dwight Howard, this summer's hottest free agent, with the opportunity to finally select the team of his liking.

With all of these question marks surrounding the organization, the Lakers must make some moves to bring this team back into contention for a championship. Bleacher Report's Lance Fresh weighs in on who he thinks the Lakers should target in this offseason.
