Report: Lakers have shown interest in former Warriors guard

Report: Lakers have shown interest in former Warriors guard

Ian Clark is looking for his next basketball home.

And the Lakers have shown interest in the free agent guard, according to The Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner.

Over 77 regular season games with the Warriors last season, Clark averaged 6.8 points while shooting just under 49 percent from the field and over 37 percent from deep.

In 16 playoff games (he did not play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals), he averaged 6.8 points on 50.6 percent shooting overall, and 36 percent from 3-point territory.

Last week, he was asked if he would be back with the Warriors in 2017-18.

"It's not looking like it," Clark said while in Memphis. "Going through that situation right now. As much as I want to stay, it's a business. But we'll see. Anything could happen."

The Warriors do have an open roster spot, but it's quite possible they enter training camp and/or the season with just 14 players under contract.

Golden State can only offer Clark the minimum of $1,577,230.

The Lakers could give Clark up to $4.3 million -- the room mid-level exception.

The Dodgers made a move on Thursday that will certainly interest Giants fans.

Los Angeles designated Sergio Romo for assignment.

Over 30 appearances this season, Romo is 1-1 with a 6.12 ERA.

He hasn't taken the mound since July 8.

Against the Giants this year:

- April 24: Allowed one hit and one walk in one inning
- April 25: Allowed two earned runs in 0.1 innings 
- May 2: A perfect 1-2-3 inning
- May 17: Allowed one run in one inning

Romo spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Orange and Black.

From 2008 to 2016, he went 32-26 with a 2.58 ERA and 84 saves over 515 appearances.

He won three World Series rings with the Giants.
