Wednesday saw a number of rumors circulate for the Los Angeles Lakers. While Nick Young is expected to opt-out of his player option, there is a rumor that he prefers to stay with the Lakers. One possible plan for Young is to secure a longer term contract with his hometown team.
Another rumor deals with the Lakers coaching search. Although his name has been tied to the open head coaching position, Derek Fisher has an outside shot of becoming the one to replace Mike D’Antoni. If he were to become a coach, he would do so without any form of experience.
Around the NBA, Chris Bosh revealed his intention to re-sign with the Miami Heat, even if it means taking less money to do so. Elsewhere, the Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t had much interest in bringing Luol Deng back. With Deng potentially available for other teams, the Lakers might consider him an option this upcoming summer.
