Before signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kent Bazemore waived a more lucrative offer from the Golden State Warriors.

Bazemore turned down more money and years (two) from the Warriors, sources said, but believes he will have a bigger role and opportunity to win a championship with the Lakers. Bazemore is betting on himself. Https://t.co/rw1VyXMN9c

The 32-year-old Bazemore signed with the Warriors last November and returned to the team he started his NBA career with in 2012. Coincidentally, that previous tenure ended in February 2014 when he joined the Lakers.

While the Warriors’ figure is set to improve with the return of injured veteran Klay Thompson, it seems clear that Bazemore is putting more emphasis on to win an NBA title he has so far eluded.

Bazemore’s contract is only for one year and his role on the team is uncertain. The Lakers’ tight wage cap has resulted in many budget-friendly veterans joining.

Bazemore has produced modest numbers over the course of his career. He has career averages of 8.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. He missed an impressive 40.8 percent last season.

Exactly how much money Bazemore wasted is currently unknown, but if the Lakers manage to win a championship it will be well worth the investment .

Brad is a freelance writer for LakersDaily.com who can well remember watching Lakers games in 1972 when they recorded the first of their 11 Los Angeles-based titles. The franchise’s evolution into a popular and iconic franchise among its fan base since that memorable year has allowed a broader perspective to be included in his writings on the team’s current fortunes.

A new report from ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski suggests that veteran striker Carmelo Anthony could sign with Los Angeles.
