DeMar DeRozan was in talks with the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason, yet the two sides never agreed to a deal.
DeRozan admitted, though, joining the Lakers in the offseason was a ‘real possibility’.
“Yeah, I mean, it was, it was a real possibility. I mean, I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say I wanted to come home, you know? I did try to make it happen. There’s a real possibility on it happening. You know, just things didn’t work out, you know what I mean?” DeRozan told fellow NBA star Draymond Green.
Ultimately, DeMar DeRozan agreed to a three-year, $85M contract with the Chicago Bulls.
