Reports of DeMar DeRozan and the Lakers having mutual interest in free agency

A report earlier this week mentioned DeMar DeRozan could have interest in the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency, even if he had to sign for less than he earned last season. Now a new report notes the Lakers are expected to have interest in DeRozan this offseason.

A hypothetical scenario if the Spurs trade up in the draft
