DeMar DeRozan is about to hit the free-agent market and it appears he is open to playing for his hometown team.
The four-time All-Star said this week on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast with Shannon Sharpe that his top priority is to compete for a title.
“It’s all about winning at this point, going into my 13th season, seeing all these guys just competing for a championship,” said DeRozan. “I have been fortunate enough to make a lot of money. But at this point, the ultimate goal is always to compete for a championship.”
When asked about the potential of joining the Los Angeles Lakers, DeRozan, a Southern California native, said that he would “love” to sign with them. He also said he could be a good fit alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
DeRozan averaged 21.6 points and 6.9 assists per game last season for the San Antonio Spurs. He would be a great fit for the Lakers or the Los Angeles Clippers. DeRozan is the perfect two-way player that both of his hometown teams could insert into the starting lineup right away
