The Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks are reportedly among the teams expected to pursue Los Angeles Lakers breakout sensation Talen Horton-Tucker as a restricted free agent during the 2021 NBA offseason.
Sean Deveney of Heavy reported Monday that Horton-Tucker could receive a “very hefty” offer that would be difficult for the Lakers to match.
“The way the rules are, I don’t see the Lakers letting him go,” an NBA general manager told Deveney. “But teams can make this a more difficult decision for the Lakers than they’d like. Teams that have a lot of cap space and are looking to gamble on a young guy, why not put your money into him? The upside is obvious.”
