Becaue we need shooters in the team


To be honest, I would have much rather had the Lakers sign Mike Dunleavy or trade for Bellenelli.

I mean in retrospect he can be another Novak but we need vets and guys who have the experience of spreading the floor.

I can't figure out if they are looking at him as a future coach (he's 27) or if they were influenced by the instant success Kuzma has had (a smart player with skills can run circles around more physically gifted but dumber players)

You have to keep it in perspective. We're talking a two-way contract. That's only going to be accepted by a player who has no chance to make a team and was going to have to go down to the g league anyway.

Because they're such a bad deal for players, a lot of two way contract guys are like the one we signed --older guys who had a few crappy years and are hoping for a miracle. It's not really guys you count on to be meaningful pieces; they are "in case of emergency break this glass" guy.

Mike Dunleavy wouldn't have taken the contract, and it doesn't impact any trades.

He signed a contract with a Spanish team back in July.

So Bogut, this guy, Vander Blue and the guy with the dreads are fighting for the 2nd two-way contract?



Unless... unlesss....... Caruso's going from 2 way contract to take Ennis' spot on the permanent roster?? Now we have an open 2 way for Wear?

Is an upgrade for Caruso within the rules at this point? Just guessing a little here.
Caruso better be on the real roster come the season opener. he deserves it. we need 3 pg's.

someone always gets hurt. he's shown enough from the spl til now to let us know he aint afraid of the nba. He's going to play hard, play smart and every blue moon give the crowd something to go ooooh about.

Guys on 2-way contracts can spend 45 days (not games) with the parent team. Their 2-way contract can be converted to a regular contract at any time. But then of course you have to get rid of one of the guys taking up one of the full-time 15 roster spots to make room for him.

Probably just a training camp signing, but the Lakers need forwards who can shoot, and right now, Nance is not even pulling the trigger.
