On August 17, according to previous reports, restricted free agent Caruso signed with the bulls for $37 million for four years, and the Lakers did not match the contract.
According to Sam Amick, a source familiar with Caruso’s negotiations with the Lakers refuted the team’s statement that he did not want to return. At first, the Lakers were interested in renewing Caruso’s contract, but finally parted ways because of the contract.
Previously, according to Windhorst, Caruso was willing to renew his contract with the Lakers for $30 million over three years, but the Lakers were only willing to provide a contract with an annual salary of $7 million.
In the regular season of 2020-21, Caruso played 58 games for the Lakers, averaging 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists.
