Jared Dudley would love to remain with the Los Angeles Lakers for one more year or join another NBA team for one final season.

Dudley is under contract with the Lakers until the end of the season and hopes to return for one more year.

“Now, what people don’t realize is the older you get, it’s not really about you, it’s about your family and your kids. So I have a youngest son who’s nine. A daughter who’s 11, another daughter who’s six.

My son, I’m trying to somewhat inspire him, so I would love to play one more year, 15, hopefully we can get this coronavirus gone and get fans (back). I want him one last year so he knows that I couldn’t do more than that, sometimes they boot you out, they might try to boot me out this year.

But I just think that you need vets to be able to help out in the locker room, man, and I think if it’s not with the Lakers, I believe there is a team out there that will respect what I can do and help that locker room, and I would love to see my son maybe even travel to some games.

I want my last hurrah, him to be heavily, heavily involved,” Dudley said during his appearance on Inside the Green Room podcast with Danny Green, via Christian Rivas of Silver Screen and Roll.
