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.


I could definitely see his 2-way converted some time after the trading deadline assuming Lakers still have an open roster.

Now that the Lakers have signed Scott Machado for South Bay and if in a bind it appears Luke will turn to BI as his PG with possibly Lance 4th in line should the Lakers consider paying off Caruso and releasing him.?

This would open up a spot for another developmental player and allow Caruso to possibly land on another team or go international where I feel he would prosper.

any idea what happens to Caruso next year? His 2 Way eligibility will have expired. I am sure he will get a camp invite somewhere, but not confident he will find a roster spot in the league.

Caruso not getting playing time while Luke kept playing Lance at backup point guard is saddening.

I agree, but Caruso apparently dealt with some nagging injuries for a good portion of the season too. Hopefully those are past him and he can show the Lakers his worth over the next 6 weeks.

What an absolute bright spot in a mostly disappointing season.

For me I am sold, I can honestly say he "should" have been getting minutes this season, he will still be 25 most of next season, and in an overall game sense from actual production to intangibles of the game I would rather have him then multi million dollar KCP, or lance, Bullock, and Hart (well the Hart we got this season)....

Last two games he has made a real pitch for himself going forward..........Last 2: 16PPG/5RPG/4APG on 50% shooting, 3 for 5 from 3 (%60) in 25MPG....You play him 33/34 minutes and he gives you 21 a game at this rate.

I want to see him get 30 minutes plus a game, see what we really got here, he can be a real nice hub piece next season...

Maybe Alex should've gotten minutes this season but what if he didn't play his well and build confidence if wasn't for playing with South Bay most of this season?

AC has been one of the top guards in the G-League for three years.
He deserves a spot with the Lakers. He'd be an ideal second/third team guard for this team.

He has good chemistry w/ LBJ & they may even share the same barber .
