Malik Monk was the biggest surprise of a disappointing season for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team missed the playoffs at 33-49, but Monk had his best season as a pro as a natural fit next to LeBron James. He averaged career-highs across the board including 13.8 points per game in 76 contests for the purple & gold. After hanging on to his chance in the NBA, his success has earned him a shot at a big payday this summer.
Since Monk’s season ended, reports have come out that his services will be in high demand in free agency.
