“Of course you want to play. That’s why we do what we do,” Price said. “You want to play. But you just never know. You never know what’s ahead. Whatever role is my role, I’ll embrace it, whether it’s being here as a third guard and being kind of a security blanket or whatever you want to call it. I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win and I want to be able to help a team out in whatever needs they need me to do so. That’s something I would love to come back and be a part of this organization next year. We’ll see how it works out.” Los Angeles Daily News

Price added he “absolutely” would remain interested in staying with the Lakers even as a third-string point guard. The Lakers appear invested in developing rookie guard Jordan Clarkson and could also upgrade the position through free agency (Rajon Rondo, Goran Dragic) or through the NBA Draft. Price also added he would like more stability after having various stops in Sacramento (2005-07), Utah (2007-11), Phoenix (2011-12), Portland (2012-13) and Orlando (2013-14). “I would love to have a chance to play for Byron Scott again. I respect him as a coach and respect his leadership,” said Price, who joined the Lakers this season on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal worth $1.3 million. “Byron stayed consistent throughout the entire year as far as what he expects from us, what he wants us to do on the floor and how we’re supposed to approach the game.” Los Angeles Daily News

Consider the feeling mutual. “He’s definitely a guy we’ll consider,” Scott said of Price before the Lakers played the Golden State Warriors on Monday night at Oracle Arena. “He showed he can play and he is a type of guy you want on a team. But we have to see what we do in the draft and free agent market.” Los Angeles Daily News
