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?


there is no business or basketball reason for the Lakers to do that.....they could just convert his contract after the 45 days if they feel it is needed. They already have control of him, and can play him from day 1 if they choose.

For those who would like details on two way contracts and related such as Exhibit 10:

83. Can a Two-Way player be converted to a regular NBA player? Can a regular NBA player be converted to a Two-Way player? What is Exhibit 10?

Thanks Bard that clears up my question.

Looks like up to 6 players can have Exhibit 10 in effect at any time, so it doesn't squeeze out Vander Blue just because Thomas Wear is getting signed with this in effect.

Yes, we need Vander to look like DLO while sitting on the bench. It'll bring a calming presence to Laker fans who miss him dearly. Or stir some crap up. 😂😂😂

for what its worth...will not surprise me if Caruso is converted by years end....not sure if that will come after a trade that opens up a spot or we simply waive a player....but it looks like his odds of finishing the year on the roster are at least even right now.

Bogut can't get a two-way contract, as he played (much) more than 3 NBA seasons.

He's the 15th guy then right?

Lonzo, Ennis, KCP, JC, Hart, Brewer, BI, Kuzma, Deng, Randle, Nance, Bryant, Zubac, Lopez, Bogut

Then Caruso as 1st two-way

So that left Vander Blue, Zimmerman, Ware, Briante for 1 last contract

Yes, except Bogut's contract is partially guaranteed and Zimmermann was already waived.

sounds like the Lakers are just giving him...probably $50K?....just to kind of keep him close to the organization with the SB Lakers. If not, I guess any G League team could pick him up. Maybe just appreciation for the last couple years, and keeping him close to home. I mean the guy is not garbage....he does some things well.

Nothing official yet but that is the scuttlebutt (if/when they clear waivers).

I think he went 12/13 on the 3's that I saw him take today. Him & Thomas Bryant were in a shootout where both of them barely missed.

seemed like he had a little versatility to his game also....if I recall, he was even playing some small ball #5 in SL....he is like 6'9"/6'10"....can knock down shots. I do not see any downside to giving him some cash and keeping a close eye on him.

Yeah thatís kind of what I mean by whatever. Itís not a bad whatever itís just I donít particularly understand the point of the signing but I donít have a problem with it either. I liked him in summer league.

This is a good low risk high reward signing, if he doesnít do much when he gets PT we cut him and he goes back to the G-League, and if he turns into another Belenelli we add another sharpshooter to the roster.

Yes, except Bogut's contract is partially guaranteed and Zimmermann was already waived.

Regarding Vander, from what I understand, it would behoove him not to sign a two-way contract. Although they can potentially make way more than the standard G-League player, if the Lakers don't have the need they won't call him up and he won't make all the potential money. Also, as a two-way player he won't have the opportunity to get called up by other teams. He, as the MVP, is at the cusp of breaking into the L, so he shouldn't limit his opportunity to the Lakers who are already stocked with young talent at the guard position. His best shot was #15 which presumably will go to Bogut.

So with shooters in such demand, no other team saw fit to keep or sign him. Not buying it, I hope this contract isn't guaranteed
