Lawson will be heading to Cliffside, a luxury drug and rehab center in Malibu, tomorrow, city prosecutors say. He'll be there for 30 days.

Lawson was charged with DUI on Monday night in California. He was also arrested for DUI in January, and he was charged with domestic violence in 2013, although that charge was dropped.
These transgressions and Lawson’s locker-room issues have him on the trade block despite his immense talent, and Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix reported Friday that the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Pistons have expressed some interest in the troubled point guard. The Sacramento Kings are another team that could make a play for him.
Outside of basketball, hopefully this trip to rehab will be the wake-up call Lawson needs to get his life in order.
