Report: Talen Horton-Tucker Re-Signs with LA Lakers

The Lakers were busy on Tuesday, as they re-signed twenty-year-old Talen Horton-Tucker to a three year deal worth a reported $32M
The Lakers were keen to keep THT, as they announced on July 22nd that they had extended a qualifying offer to the 2019 2nd round draft choice out of Iowa State. 2020-21 proved to be a breakout year for THT, as he averaged 9.0 ppg, 2.6 rpg and 2.8 apg, while becoming a fan favorite. However, more will be expected of him as he enters his third year with the storied franchise. 

Enjoy this clip, where Tony Allen provides an entertaining account of the roots of his belief in Horton-Tucker's abilities. 

The Lakers have now overhauled their roster heading into the 2021-22 season, and will look dramatically different.
