NBA Insider Brian Windhorst opened up about the interest that Lakers’ guard Talen Horton-Tucker is drawing from other NBA teams.

According to Windhorst, rival teams are targeting Horton-Tucker and not Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

“The piece that they have that they may be willing to move is Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. The piece that teams want is Talen Horton-Tucker, who’s a restricted free agent at the end of the year,” Windhorst reports, via Lakers Daily.

Talen Horton-Tucker is a restricted free agent this offseason, which means the Lakers can match any offer he receives and keep him in the roster.

Horton-Tucker is averaging 8.1 points, 2.7 points and 2.3 assists in 39 games for the Lakers.
