San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan has emerged as one of the biggest names in this summer’s free agency class. Rumors of his impending departure from the Spurs became even more prominent after the Compton, California native recently expressed his willingness to play in his hometown of Los Angeles. Unsurprisingly, it isn’t only the Lakers who are in the race to sign DeRozan.
The Lakers’ bitter cross-town rivals, the LA Clippers, are reportedly also in the running in the DeRozan bidding war. The same goes for the New York Knicks, the Chicago Bulls, and his current team, the Spurs, making it a five-horse race. This is according to NBA insider Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.
