As he mulls a one-year deal with Cavs, free-agent guard Derrick Rose will meet with the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

The Lakers can offer more money than Cleveland—their $4.3 million exception—and reportedly envision Rose mentoring Lonzo Ball.

From ESPN:

The Lakers are trying to entice Rose to sign with them, suggesting they can offer more playing time and money in a better environment after Rose’s tumultuous 2016-17 season with the New York Knicks, sources said.

 

The Lakers think Rose can help the development of rookie point guard Lonzo Ball.
