Lakers Determined To Re-Sign Austin Reaves, Rui Hachimura
The Los Angeles Lakers are determined to re-sign both Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura in restricted free agency, sources tell Marc Stein.
Reaves has a complicated free agency in which the Lakers can only offer up to a four-year, $51 million deal. But the Lakers can match any offer sheet Reaves signs with a rival team that exceeds that number.
D’Angelo Russell is considered to be in a different category for the Lakers than Reaves and Hachimura, according to Stein. The Lakers would like to keep Russell, but his status as an unrestricted free agent makes the price more difficult to predict.
