LOS ANGELES, California – With one step, the Los Angeles Lakers in most people's eyes became the favorite to win the NBA championship next year. But they are not finished.
After trading for New Orleans Pelican's star Anthony Davis, the Lakers have now set their sights on Kawhi Leonard.
In his analysis of NBA's free agency, The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reports sources say the Lakers are planning to pursue Leonard. Oh, but wait. There is more.
It's just one of the many rumors that follow the Lakers around. The New York Times reported that Kemba Walker is the team's top target in the free agency.
Kemba Walker will be a top target in the free Lakers agency after they have in principle entered into a deal with Anthony Davis according to league sources

Leonard could stay in Toronto. But if he were to join the Lakers, it would give the team three of the NBA five top players. We could look at a Miami Heat situation again.
