Discussing his fine 2022-23 performance in an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Lonnie Walker IV said extending his stay with the Los Angeles Lakers has been one of his main motivations:

“I’m here for one year,” Walker says. “I would love to be here for as long as I can. So what do I have to do to get to that point? Being disciplined, being engaged, and just stacking the days and being the best I can be is something that’s going to get me there.”
