In July 2006, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Buss family became the first NBA franchise to own an NBA Development League team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

The D-Fenders are the sole affiliate of the Lakers and are committed to providing the highest quality of emerging talent.

* D-Fenders Coach Casey Owens eager to lead Lakers' D-League affiliate

* Sharpshooter Frazier Looks to Build on Lakers Training Camp

Quote:
After spending training camp with the Lakers together, Frazier and Upshaw are looking to attract some eyes in the D-League.

The 3-point specialist and 7-foot behemoth anticipate that their connection formed with the Lakers could bleed into their time with the D-Fenders.

ďI think we can definitely be a one-two punch in this league and really play off each other,Ē Frazier said. ďHeís a great big with great shot-blocking potential. Everybody knows he can do that. He also has good mid-range game, touch around the basket ó things like that.Ē

Update on Undrafted Rookie Robert Upshaw
Quote:
Overseas is a better opportunity than this one is, financially, but Iím not here for those reasons. Iím here to become a great basketball player and if I have to go through this, Iím going to do itÖ Iím definitely going to be playing basketball in the NBA. I donít see myself playing ball overseas for a while. Itís just always been a goal and Iíve never given up, Iíve never quit.

D-Fenders ready for season with five former Lakers on roster

Quote:
This year's squad features five former Lakers, including guards Manny Harris and Vander Blue, who were midseason call-ups by the Lakers; and center Robert Upshaw and guard Michael Frazier, who both went through the preseason with the team last month.

The fifth is forward Malcolm Thomas, who briefly went through training camp with the Lakers in the lockout-shortened preseason of 2011.

I asked, but it hasn't been moved so I guess the answer was no.

Robert Upshaw: ĎI Knew I Was Going To Get Cutí By The Lakers

Quote:
Despite showing a lot of potential as a solid rim protector, undrafted rookie center Robert Upshaw didnít make the cut. Upshaw was waived by the Lakers, and that paved the way for the 21-year-old to sign with the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

During media day for the D-Fenders on Tuesday, Upshaw was asked whether it was difficult being cut by the Lakers. The rookie center claims he knew it was coming.

FINAL:

D-FENDERS - 123 (Manny Harris - 39 pts, 10 rbs, Upshaw 11 pts 6 rbs)

RENO - 121

* Upshaw needs to get in better shape and show a little more hustle. Work in progress.

* Mini Mamba is a serious baller
