The Lakers are limited in the type of contract they can offer Malik Monk when free agency starts this week.
But will he return to LA for less?
I spoke to Malik about his priorities in free agency, including why role and minutes are more important than $: PM

More on this storyline

Jake Fischer on Malik Monk: It’s a very different situation than the Lakers, but I know that there’s mutual interest. The one team I’ve heard to look out for for him not to go to Lakers is the Sacramento Kings. -via / June 30, 2022
The Lakers would like to retain Malik Monk at their taxpayer mid-level, but Monk is also searching for more lucrative deals, sources said, despite telling Jovan Buha of The Athletic he’d be willing to return to Los Angeles on a discount. -via Bleacher Report / June 29, 2022
Malik Monk said he’d consider accepting less money than his market price to stay with the Lakers for the taxpayer midlevel exception. “They might not be able to pay me as much as I want,” he said. “But I could be here and be way more comfortable as a Laker than going to any other team (that would pay) me $5 million more. So it’s just me trying to figure out what team would really want me.” -via The Athletic / June 27, 2022
