Two of the top free agents in this summer's class appear to be eyeing a potential Hollywood move.

San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan and Toronto Raptors franchise icon Kyle Lowry have both expressed interest in joining the Los Angeles Lakers, reports Brad Turner of The Los Angeles Times.

DeRozan was born and raised in the California area. He also spent his lone season of collegiate basketball at USC.

The four-time All-Star averaged 21.6 points and a career-high 6.9 assists over 61 appearances last season.

Meanwhile, Lowry has spent the last nine seasons in Toronto after being acquired from the Houston Rockets. The 35-year-old registered 17.2 points, 7.3 assists, and 5.4 boards per contest in 2020-21.

Los Angeles was among multiple teams linked to Lowry at the trade deadline last March.

The Lakers currently have five players under guaranteed contracts for next season. Montrezl Harrell holds a $9.7-million player option for 2020-21, while Dennis Schroder, Talen Horton-Tucker, Alex Caruso, and Andre Drummond are among the club's notable free agents.
