Knicks among teams to express interest in Talen Horton-Tucker?

League sources told Heavy.com Horton-Tucker can expect “multiple teams” to have an interest in pursuing him this summer. That would put pressure on the Lakers to match some offers that could, potentially, be very hefty. The Knicks, Cavaliers and Mavericks were listed as teams with potential interest.
He played 21 minutes against the Rockets. Horton-Tucker received increased minutes at the wing spot because guard Wesley Matthews was out with a sore right Achilles. “I always say I want to learn, so I feel like being a sponge is the most important thing you have to do when you’re learning, especially with guys of the caliber of the guys that we have,” he said. “So, just being a sponge has probably been the key to me doing good things.”
Los Angeles Lakers guard Talen Horton-Tucker certainly proved he belongs in the league following the spectacular run he had in the preseason. As far as one NBA scout is concerned, the reigning champions are missing out by not giving him more minutes in the 2020-21 regular season. Bill Oram of The Athletic revealed on the “The Forum Club” podcast (h/t Ralph Mason) that one unnamed scout had an intriguing observation about the promising second-year Laker guard. “I was on the phone with a scout the other day, kind of at the peak of THT hysteria, and this is not somebody who works for the Los Angeles Lakers, and they said ‘if you put Talen Horton-Tucker on one of these s—ty teams, like the Thunder or Charlotte, then he might average 20 points a game… This is somebody who does make money to watch (basketball). An NBA team pays for this person’s opinions, and that’s how highly people view him right now,” Oram shared.
