Lakers: Samaki Walker told GM Mitch Kupchak that he would exercise his option -- at $1.54 million -- to return to the Lakers next season. "He wants to be here," Kupchak told the L.A. Times. "He came to us for lesser money than he could have gotten. My guess is, it's tough to judge what the market will be this summer. But this is where he wanted to be. He feels this is a place where he can flourish." Kupchak also spoke briefly Monday with guard Lindsey Hunter, who may opt out of his contract that's due to pay him about $8 million over the next two seasons. He said Hunter hadn't yet decided, but that he would by the weekend.
