Derrick Williams Has Interest in Lakers?


(Forward Derrick) Williams, the University of Arizona product, will be back home. He’s one of many Knicks with Los Angeles ties as the club faces the Clippers on Friday and the Lakers on Sunday. Williams revealed the Lakers, founders of Showtime, exhibited strong interest in him last summer, and they could be a threat to the Knicks if he opts out this July.

“That’s my home,’’ Williams told The Post. “I’m from L.A., Orange County. I love it but at the same time I’m here, love playing in New York, home away from home. This weekend will be great. I haven’t been home since August. It’s always great to play before family and friends. I can’t wait to go back.’’
