I‘m sure Bill Walton is chilling somewhere in San Diego right now thinking to himself, “This is probably the greatest signing in all of Western civilization.”
ESPN is reporting that Luke Walton has reached a 6 year, 30Mill deal with the Lakers. Seems like we didn’t overpay for young Skywalker afterall. The question now remains, when will he get his daytime Emmy?
ESPN: Luke Walton reached agreement Sunday with the Los Angeles Lakers on a six-year, $30 million contract after general manager Mitch Kupchak placed a call one minute after midnight to express the team’s interest in retaining its best unrestricted free agent.
They called at the earliest possible moment, and we worked on it all day,” agent Lon Babby said. “They wanted him back, and Luke wanted to be there. We wanted to make every effort to get an agreement.before we went out and looked at any other teams.”
