Veteran guard Jamal Crawford’s preference would be to join rookie Lonzo Ball with the Los Angeles Lakers if he can get bought out of his contract, a source told The Undefeated’s Marc Spears.
With his family based in Los Angeles and a solid relationship already in place with Ball, Crawford would like to sign as a free agent with the Lakers.
The Lakers have strong interest in signing Crawford as well, a source said, and have the money to do so. The Lakers will have $17.2 million in room if the cap holds of Thomas Robinson, Tyler Ennis, Nick Young and Metta World Peace are released.
