After missing out on Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe during the 2014 free agency period, the Los Angeles Lakers should be very active during the upcoming 2014-15 season. Although the Lakers have a nice mix of veterans and young talent, a lot of questions remain unanswered. Looking Ahead, here are five trades the Los Angels Lakers should pursue during the upcoming season.

Although Dorell Wright has seen his share of ups and downs during his 10 seasons in the NBA, the 6-foot-8 small forward can score from the the outside. Last season, Wright averaged 12.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per 36 minutes, but it's his outside shooting and defense that makes him a good fit in Los Angeles. Wright could be a good complementary player off the bench for Byron Scott and the Lakers.

Known for his flashy dunks and high-flying ability, Gerald Green would be a great fit off the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite being a streaky shooter, Green's ability to attack the basket and draw fouls would make the 6-foot-8 forward a nice complement to the Lakers' bench. If the Lakers can make a trade for Green, he may prove a lot of doubters wrong learning from Kobe Bryant.

After missing out on Greg Monroe during the 2014 free agency period, the Los Angeles Lakers should definitely pursue the 6-foot-10 center during the 2014 season. Monroe's defensive ability, combined with his improved offensive skills, should make him a great anchor beside Julius Randle.

2. Eric Bledsoe

Like Monroe, the Lakers also missed out on point guard Eric Bledsoe this past offseason. Although the Lakers have been rumored to be interested in the rising guard, the asking price for Bledsoe may be a little too expensive. If the Lakers can acquire Bledsoe without giving up Julius Randle, they should pull the trigger quickly.

Although it's hard to imagine a trade involving the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics, Rajon Rondo has to be on the Lakers radar. With Steve Nash at the end of his career and Jeremy Lin becoming a free agent, Rondo would be a great addition to the Lakers. During his eight seasons in Boston Rondo has averaged 11.1 PPG, 8.4 APG and 1.9 SPG. Rondo's defense and high basketball IQ would make him a great player the Lakers can build around.
