The Lakers are interested in Meeks, 26, a soon-to-be free agent who is paid $1.6 million in a league whose average salary is $5.5 million. He’s interested in them, too.

“When I signed here two years ago, I told my family that I would love to be here the rest of my career,” Meeks said. “Learning from great players — Kobe [Bryant], Pau Gasol, and at the time, Dwight [Howard], Steve Nash. Obviously, I want to be here and it’s a great organization and I love playing here.

“But on the flip side it’s a business. Both sides have to do what they do.”
