I hope he does well too. It creates a bit of a logjam at the 2 position, because we'll have Hart, Clarkson and Blue all battling for time and a place in front of the pecking order for the backup position. A great problem to have.

He doesn't have the athleticism of Clarkson, I see more Meeks in Blue.

If he gets minutes, the team is in trouble. Means other guys are not playing well.

Let's hope the Vander Blue who showed up late in the Summer League tournament is the player we see in training camp. I was appalled by his first game in Vegas this summer, but as the tourney progressed so did Vander. He really came through for the Lakers, and played his butt off for the win throughout the remainder of the tournament. Best of luck Vander Blue!

The Los Angeles Lakers recently signed guard Vander Blue after a strong showing in the Summer League. Recently, he took to Twitter to thank the boss.

I think he has a real opportunity actually as he is our only sort of small, quick guard.

If he plays as well as he did in summer league, he will see minutes.

I was impressed with him, this guy has put in the time and hard work and I think is ready for his shot in the Big Show.

I don't see how he sticks with the Lakers. Unless bogut pulls a yi from last year, Vander is pretty much a practice partner in training camp

If he earns it, they will make moves to create room for him.

Blue has been quiet but solid in limited action so far this pre-season. 4.6 Pts, 50% FG, 50% from deep, +8

Hopefully he gets the last two-way contract although Weber, Zimmerman and Beacham all bring something to the table.

I would love to have all those guys play in South Bay.

supposedly Blue has committed to not returning to the G League this season, but I assume he would if he was on a 2 way contract.

Glad he's on a 2 way contract.

Still have no idea why Luke didn't use him at all during pre-season when we needed shot creators and scorers out there.

Didn't see this coming at all honestly with that PT they gave him in the pre-season but I'm really happy for the guy. I'd encourage anybody who hasn't already to read this article about him training and how badly he wanted this to happen, it got me in his corner.

https://theundefeated.com/features/nba-vander-blue-has-one-goal-to-stick-with-lakers

Doesn't hurt that it's a pretty well written article too.

Anyway, really happy for the guy. Feel good story of the pre-season for me.

Blue had us by the balls. He threatened to go the Erie Bayhawks if we didn't give him a two-way. 😂

Now if we can get the worst fashion street clothes on him and some small reading glasses and teach him not to smile and give short answers during interviews... 😂
