The Los Angeles Lakers and Austin Reaves have mutual interest on a deal when he becomes a free agent this offseason, sources tell Jovan Buha of The Athletic.
The Lakers can offer Reaves up to a four-year, $50.8 million using his Early Bird Rights, but they also can match any offer sheet he signs with another team in restricted free agency.
Reeves figures to receive interest from multiple teams this offseason.
“It’s special,” Reaves said of playing for the Lakers. “I mean, I grew up a Lakers fan. To do it for this organization, especially, is surreal. Sometimes I gotta stop and really think about what I am doing. … All I’m really happy about is the win.”
