He's borderline but he is young and has time to improve some. I won't count him out. IMO he could be a 3rd team "system-type" guard. Again, time will tell.

1 more game until this thread is locked.

By far the worst Laker I've seen since Sacre.

LMAO

Do you honestly think he belongs in the league? He's slow, he can't defend, he can't shoot and he can't create. Josh Hart has bad games, Kuzma has bad games, Caruso is just bad.

Caruso isn't a terrible defender. I'd say he's average. He also manages the ball okay. However, in the NBA, if you don't add value somewhere, even with just one go to skill set, you can't last. Sure, he can still improve, but he isn't an NBA player. I suppose he could be a 3rd stringer, but that's his limit right now, if that.

If we plan to compete next year, we need a legit backup PG. That's not Caruso, nor Ennis.

Caruso or Ennis? Which one do you guys prefer to have for next season?


It really depends on if the Lakers can bring in even 1 big name player..

Ennis has been really aggressive and has been doing great the last few games, he has NBA experience and I am fine with him returning as the bench PG next season.

Caruso may have a few good steals and hit a few shots, but his play in general (including his turnovers), fully illustrate why he should NOT be on the Lakers bench next year, unless of course their plan is to win 30 games again..

He definitely regressed later in the season, probably hit the "rookie wall". He's not a bad backup. Let's see how much he improves this summer.

As a 3rd string PG I can easily see him in the NBA.
Decent athleticism, can defend and pass the ball.

Alex Caruso Chosen for USA Basketball's World Cup Team Training Camp

https://www.nba.com/lakers/releases/180611-alex-caruso-chosen-for-usa-basketball-world-cup-team-training-camp

EL SEGUNDO Ė Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso was among one of 14 players chosen to participate in the USA World Cup Qualifying Team training camp June 20-26, USA Basketball announced today. The training will be used to select the 12-man team for the USAís World Cup Qualifying third-window games including Mexico on June 28 in Mexico City and Cuba on July 1 in Havana.

Caruso averaged 19.0 points, 7.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game in his first season with the South Bay Lakers, en route to All-NBA G League Second Team Honors and a second-place finish in NBA G League Defensive Player of the Year voting. Signed to a two-way contract prior to the 2017-18 season, the Texas A&M product saw action in 37 games with the Los Angeles Lakers where he averaged 3.6 points and 2.0 assists per game.

Jeff Van Gundy, who led the USA to a 5-0 record and the gold medal at the 2017 FIBA AmeriCup and has led the USA to a 4-0 record in the first two windows of the World Cup Qualifiers, returns as head coach. NBA G League Erie Bayhawks head coach Josh Longstaff and former Georgetown University coach John Thompson III will serve as USA assistant coaches.

The USA will hold training camp June 20-26 in Houston, and the team is expected to be announced prior to the teamís departure for Mexico on June 26. The player selections are made by the USA Basketball Menís World Cup Qualifying Team Committee.

Good job, Pope! He also has a good chance of coming back on his two-way deal next season.

LA has Caruso under a 2-way deal this year which comes at a zero cap hit. I expect his deal to get converted at some point this season.

So Caruso and Newman are the 2-way deal this season? Or Caruso has to sign a new 2-way deal?

Caruso didn't get Wally Pipped in the draft at least. Live to survive another day, Pope Alex!

Caruso will graduate to the 15-man roster this year. That third string PG spot is his to lose, IMO.
