Lakers News: Jodie Meeks Wants To Stay With Lakers Long-Term

Meeks celebrating

Having a secure spot on this Lakers team moving forward might be a tall order to ask for if you’re currently on the roster. For Jodie Meeks, he hopes that his growth and improvement this season will play a big factor in what management decides to do with him in the 2014 off-season.

According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, Meeks has a very strong interest in staying in Los Angeles, and will be looking to sign a long-term deal with the Lakers in this upcoming summer:

“I like the city and love it here,” said Meeks. “The coaching staff is great and it’s a storied organization. I always pictured playing in a organization that’s prideful about winning. I love it here and hope I can stay a long time.”

As for the Lakers, we know that they intend to have full flexibility to do what they want in the summers of 2014 and 2015, so a long-term deal might not be in the interest of management.

Regardless of that, Meeks has been having a career season, averaging 14.7 points per game on 45 percent shooting from the field and 41 percent from beyond the arc.

If he continues this type of performance, the front-office we’ll be sure to ink him to a deal for the right terms.
