The Lakers have a strong interest in retaining Monk, but it will depend on both his market and the quality of 3-and-D wings available to Los Angeles, according to league sources. Players the Lakers will target with their full taxpayer midlevel exception include Otto Porter Jr., Nicolas Batum, Gary Harris, T.J. Warren, Caleb Martin, Cody Martin, Mo Bamba and Danuel House Jr., according to multiple league sources.

More on this storyline

 

Kylen Mills: Otto Porter Junior was living the dream at the parade. He about polished off that bottle before his bus hit the actual parade route 😆 OPJ said again today in an interview with @JDJohnDickinson that being a part of the Warriors has been the best experience of his life. #dubnation pic.twitter.com/NfMiZU8IaR -via Twitter @KylenMills / June 20, 2022

That number increases to $430 million if they use their $6.4 million tax midlevel exception on a player like Porter Jr. The Warriors bypassed on using the tax midlevel last year and filled out the roster with players signed to the veteran minimum. -via ESPN / June 18, 2022

Kendra Andrews: Otto Porter Jr. on his upcoming free agency: “I do know this team can compete for another championship. And I think it would be a great opportunity if I can stay here. It would be an amazing to be here with this group of guys again and do it all over again.” -via Twitter @kendra__andrews / June 18, 2022
