While appearing on the Club Shay Shay podcast hosted by a three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, small forward DeMar DeRozan, who became an unrestricted free agent this summer, was asked about the possibility of returning home to play for the Los Angeles Lakers:

This past season, DeRozan averaged 21.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game while shooting at 49.5 percent from the field for the San Antonio Spurs. For the past five seasons, the forward was making around $27 million per year.
